When did I buy it? 2012 I think. If I reviewed it back then, my verdict would probably be more favorable as I hadn't tried other cool cream blush formula back then.
Anyway, the nyx blush stick is unique on its own(doesn't mean it's good though) that it has a harder stick that's either creamy(like nyc blushable cream stick), dewy or -cone-filled. Texture wise, it's like a less oily version of Tarte pushup cheek stain or a harder take on elf cheek color).
Pink Poppy is a shimmery peachy pink that pulls a little berry on me(or maybe it's berry all along and only the golden shimmer makes it peachy). It looks like a standard medium pink flush and is easy enough to control.
Pink Poppy(the least pretty of all in terms of finish and wear) compared to other coral cream cheek color. I had to use liner because the camera wouldn't focus on my arm.
Kiko gives a flustered look but the slightly frosted finish also helps to conceal small blemishes. Canmake also has the frosted finish but the color appears more cutesy in a superficial(sitting on top of skin, not blending in as it's intended/designed)way. Shu Uemura Tint in Gelato has both of a froggy cone-like wear and a natural flush-like quality, not to mention it blends really well with my foundation(aka the strong white cast of Shiseido sunscreen)so I really like that.
Overall: Pink Poppy isn't a bad product but with so many cream blush in the market, it pales in comparison.
