Review: NYX Baked Blush and NYX Illuminator

 Happy Friday Lovelies! I'm here this Friday with another review/ first impressions of some more NYX products. I love NYX products. They are affordable and most of their products are very good quality. I recently purchased these items at Ulta. The great thing about buying drugstore products at Ulta is that they always have sales on them. This was buy one get one 50% off.

These NYX baked blushes are beautiful! They have a wide range of colors to offer. I purchased two of them, Journey and Foreplay.

Journey is a deeper pink, almost rose color. This swatch doesn't do it justice. I have fair skin and I was scared that this color might be too dark for my skin but it ended up looking pretty good on!

 Foreplay is a light pink color and its gorgeous! I love this one the best out of both of them. It's the prettiest sparkly pink color. Very flattering on the skin.

 Both colors are baked blushes so they have a nice highlight to them as well. If you didn't want to put on a blush and a highlighter for the day but still wanted a nice glow, these would be perfect for that!

The other product I bought that day were these NYX Illuminators. I bought a white one and a pink shaded one. These illuminators are highlighters for above your cheekbones, down the bridge of your nose, or even on your brow bone instead of using an eyeshadow to highlight.

I really like the packaging of these. They are very sleek and there is quite a bit of product in there too! 

This first illuminator is the pink one, it is called Enigmatic. This one is a gorgeous light pink highlighter. Pink highlighters aren't as bright as the white highlighters but still give your skin a very nice and pretty glow.

This next color is called Ritualistic. This highlighter is amazing! It stands out so well on your skin. I have been using mine above my cheekbones and also on my brow bone for a great eye highlighter.

I would recommend both of these products. I like the Illuminators better than the baked blushes but both are great products. It's always fun and exciting to try out new products and I've been having fun with all four of these.Here's a link to the NYX website if your interested in any of these items, or check your local Ulta to see if they have any deals on NYX right now.

Thanks for reading and I hope you have a great Friday the 13th!
