NYX Blush in Cinnamon: Review!!

OK, so I was trying to get my hands on this for the longest only to find out it was right at my local beauty supply store. Wow. Anyway, I LOVE this blush, it works incredibly well with my yellow based skin.
NYX Cinnamon Blush

NYC Cinnamon Blush

I have always had problems with straight up pink blushes, they never looked good on me, they just don't compliment my skin...

NYX cosmetics: Is cruelty free but I am not sure if that means they don't test on animals.

Not very sturdy at all. Its a plastic black case with a see through window. The pressure you put on the window to open and close the container causes the window to pop inwards. I have mine taped because I can't find any superglue, but if this ever happens to you I think glue is the better option.
Popped out lid :(

NYX blushes are larger than the eye shadows. If you chose to depot this blush I don't think it would fit in a Mac blush palate, though the mosaic blushes will fit.

My Thoughts:
Sheer is correct. When NYX says sheer they aren't lying, I think this blush is very natural looking, however if you wanted a stronger color, this is very very buildable.

I have no problem blending this on my cheeks. I either use my Eco Tools powder brush or my E.L.F. flat top powder brush depending on how much color I want. Even though this is a 'powder blush' I don't think this is extremely powdery. I think its pressed in well.

This isn't the best swatch ever but...just to give you an idea of what it does
on my skin ;)

This color is completely matte. There is no shimmer in this whatsoever. I  think it would compliment alot of skin tones as well. Very fair skin tones, asian skin tones middle brown skin tones and dark skin tones could pull this off.

I wear this color everyday these days, I will try to do a FOTD, since I just recently understood what that stood for...pathetic, right?
