NYC New York color cosmetics Cheek Glow Powder Blush is part of their permanent line. 


  • Pigmentation needs improvement. It's way too sheer for my liking. I had to swipe my finger over and over again to get a decent color pay off when I was swatching them on my arm. I had to dip my brush heavily so many times to make the shade appear on my cheeks. 
  • All the shades look very similar to one another. Imagine picking out a shade while at the drugstore when all of the blush shades look the same. It would be very difficult. *look at photos*
  • The name of the blushes does not match the shade. For example, Park Avenue Plum is no where near a plum color but more of a rosy shade.
  • Some shades are not true to color. For example, "Outside Cafe" appears to be a shimmery bronze color in the pan, but in reality it's just all silver shimmers. *see swatches*


  • Sheer can be good thing. You don't have to worry about applying too much blush. 
  •  I also really like the matte finish of most of the blushes. It looks very natural on the face 
  • The price is also very cheap. Only $2.49!

Overall, they are just okay and not for me. I won't be reaching for them when I do my makeup. They are affordable, but there are a lot of drugstore blushes that has better pigment or color pay off.
