Nars Blushes!

Here's a look at my Nars blushes! I thought very carefully about what colours I wanted before I purchased any, I think I have got the bases covered!

Yes, the packaging get get VERY messy, but I still love it. The logo for Nars is very sleek and eye catching. I have 5 blushes that I will be sharing my thoughts on!

As will all Nars blushes, the colours are VERY pigmented, so a little goes a long way.

Price: £18.50



SERTAO

This is a golden nude apricot colour, it works very well with smokey eyes as it tones down the rest of your face, it has a beautiful shimmer and can also be worn as highlight. It works very well with cool toned eyeshadows. However, this is the dustiest blush from Nars that I own.

GINA
This one is a matt peach colour, it's great for the summer and works well with light fresh colours. I blogged about this particular colour in a previous post. It works very well with tanned skin and brightens up the face. It really compliments earth toned eyeshadow. This looks great teamed with Mac's Redhead MSF from the BBR collection.

ANGELICA
This is a blue toned baby pink with silver flecks, this works very well with cool toned eyeshadow or to bring some colour into your face when doing a neutral look. This looks beautiful teamed with Mac's Grand duo in Moon River as a highlight.

ORGASM
This is a peachy pink with gold flecks. In my opinion it lives up to the cult hype as it's a colour that will work well with any look.

CACTUS FLOWER
This is a bright coral with gold flecks. This was my first blush from Nars, it's a cream blush with amazing pigmentation. The formula is so smooth, somewhat like velvet. It works well in the summer, and is an absolute must have for me. It also looks lovely on the lips. Occasionally when I wear this on my cheeks, I team it with Nars sparkling pressed powder (gold) as a highlight which really picks up the gold flecks in cactus flower.

I love Nars blushes! I think you would love Luster, it's my favourite. It gives a beautiful peachy/golden glow. :)

I use luster as a bronzer at times when im a bit...pale? I love it.. and deep throat.. such a sexy color. Orgasm makes me look a bit sick.. like I have a fever but I use it as an eyeshadow instead!! LOVE NARS!

I'd just like to share, that a blush that looks *very much* like NARS Orgasm, is The Body Shop's blush number 04, when blended they look very much alike. So it could go as a "possible dupe" , do check it out :)
