Nyx Grinds Up Some Blush

Remember seeing this picture of Nicole Kidman a few months ago and wondering why? I heard it was due to high definition makeup. Is that true? I’m still trying to find out so I’ll let you know! In the meantime, I have to ask, are you intrigued by the whole high definition makeup trend? Do you think there is a need for it? Thankfully only a handful of the makeup brands have put products under this subject because for us everyday Nyx-HD-Grinding-Blush-2 girls, I’m not sure we need it. The latest line to throw their hat into the ring is NYX COSMETICS. They just put out their HD Studio Photogenic Collection, which consists of foundations, powders, primers and blush and out of the bunch,

I’m picking the HD Grinding Blush to write about. I like the concept of the package it comes in – a grinder to finely grate off the exact amount of powder you need every time you use it. This keeps the product fresh and contaminate-free. Choose from 8 super-wearable and nicely blending colors for $16.50 @ Color pick: Menage a Trois (a beautiful coral with a hint of gold).

One word of caution – make sure you clear out the shaved off product after you use it. For some reason, if you leave any in the compact, the powder seems to migrate to the outside lip and when you open it for use, it goes everywhere!

For whatever reason, the idea of grinding the blush just seems annoying to me, and definitely sounds messy!
