I have heard so much about this NYX powder blush in the shade taupe. I have never been able to spot it in any of the stores that carry NYX products, so when I saw it on eBay I had to try it out for myself. I have a very light skin tone naturally, so when I’m not tanned it is very hard for me to get a natural looking contour during the day.
The shade is perfect for contouring on lighter skin tones because it is a grey-ish brown and is very cool-toned. I use it to contour my cheekbones, nose, and even on my eyes; in the crease. This powder however, lacks in pigmentation and the top forms a layer that must be scratched off every so often. It would not even swatch but when i use a brush and roughly swirl it around I get a small amount of product. I see that as a positive because it is always better to have less than to look over-contoured, which can happen very easily for me. NYX has this shade in a new HD formula which I want to try out to compare.
Have you tried this or the HD blush in taupe?
I just did a search for this item on eBay and it seems to be sold out currently.
