What I got with the Cherry Culture 20% off sale

Yup! I gave in to temptaion and picked up a few things. I also combined the sale with the points I earned from cherry culture and got $12 off on top of the 20% off. YAY me!

This is what I got:

NYX Blush in Pinched and Red. Now, NYX blush in Pinched has been compared to NARS Orgasm many times. I did not know this when I bought it and was a tad afraid of getting it because I did not like NARS Orgasm and returned it after I bought, BUT Pinched is BEYOND gorgeous! It is more pinker and gold with a hint of peach, where I thought NARS Orgasm was more peach. I think Pinched is prettier and nicer than NARS Orgasm, but that's just me! :P
NYX Red had been compared to NARS Rated R, which I have never owned, so I can not comment on the comparison, but I never had a matte red and thought this was a great brand to try it with.
 Swatches, both are so pretty!
 NYX Pinched on me. Look at that GLOW!
Next is the LA Splash Liquid Eyeliner in Tropical Lime and Clown Fish. They are very pigmented and last a long time
 Left to Right: Clown Fish and Tropical Fish
 AND I got the NYX stipple brush. I never owned a NYX brush and I am tad disappointed with this one. I thought it firmer, BUT we will see as I use it more often. It may surprise me.

Have you tried these blushes? What do you think of what I got?
