Blush Crush: NYX Mauve

Hello lovely readers, 

I'm back with another blush crush. This time it's NYX's Mauve. The weather has taken a turn for the worst lately and I haven't really been feeling like peaches of pinks so I thought I would whip out this one to mix it up a bit.

Mauve is a muted rosy pink blush. I do find the name a little deceiving as the blush is more of a muted pink with almost a hint of orange (on my skin anyway) regardless I am liking this blush. I am still on the hunt for a great mauvey toned blush so let me know if you have any suggestions. 

 The texture is smooth, silky and really blendable. It's easy to apply and very pigmented, as you can see in the pic below where I have packed it on! However this blush does lack staying power but for the price I really can't complain too much.

  (Excuse the messy hair, this is it in all its natural glory haha)

It is a nice, rosy, natural looking blush.  This blush is definitely great for fair to medium skinned gals but be careful to use a light hand!

I would love to know what people's favourite winter blushes are, I think I feel a shopping spree coming on!
