NYX Sunrise in Bali & Pinched (Swatches)

Happy Friday!
I cannot tell you how happy I am that it's Friday. This week feels like it has gone on forever & I'm so over it! (Probably because I have been eating clean & Sunday is my cheat day! I'm literally counting down the hours til I can enjoy some Panera Bread!)
Today, I will be reviewing NYX Bronzer & Blusher Combo in Sunrise in Bali, as well as NYX blush in Pinched. I will start with Sunrise in Bali.
What NYX says:
Get the perfect sun-kissed glow with complementing color combinations from our Bronzer/Blusher Combo. Each blush and bronzer pairing features flattering and natural-looking hues. When combined with versatile bronzing powders and blush, you achieve the impeccable Springtime and Summertime glimmer that will radiate a goddess shine.
Sunrise in Bali:
Deep bronze with gold shimmer/Deep pink with gold shimmer
I purchased both of these last June when NYX was offering a huge sale & I am finally getting around to doing a review. So I read about this on a blogger's page & they were comparing it to NARS Orgasm & Laguna combo which is like a cult favorite. I have been sucked into buying products because they were all the craze & then not using them or liking them so anytime I can find a cheaper alternative, I am down! I like NYX's products, I own so many of their things & they have great products. Plus, I love that this is bronzer & blush combo, the colors go well together & you can travel easy with them. They come in a few different colors & they are $9 on NYX website (or $6.30 with the professional discount).
What NYX says:
Our pressed powder blush delivers sheer, silky color that glides on, blends beautifully and creates a natural glow. The formula is richly-pigmented and lasts for hours. Available in 24 shades.
Coral pink with gold glitter and Iridescence
I love this color, it's absolutely gorgeous. This is one of my go to colors when I feel like I need a good color on my cheek. It blends so nice. The only downfall is if you have oily skin, you might have to reapply during the day. These blushes are $6 are on the website ($4.20 with the professional discount).
Both are packaged really plain (which I really like) and they have a decent amount of product for the price. Both are very blendable & they are pigmented.
And here is a look I did with Sunrise in Bali. I use the bronzer as a contour color & the blush on the apple of my cheeks. 
Let me know if you've tried these & what you think!
