This NARS blush seems to be one of the top cheek products everyone seems to rave about claiming it to be the ultimate universal blush and I remember being really excited when I finally took the plunge and purchased it mid last year! The packaging is lovely as with all NARS products, well designed minus the dirt grabbing finish (which I can live with as it feels super soft and looks gorgeous), the pan is well attached etc etc but I must admit I wasn’t as wowed by this product as I had hoped…at first anyway.
The blush itself is a lovely peachy pink with lovely golden tones which perhaps were a bit too glitter like for me in certain lights as I’m pretty fair which tends to make getting the right blush a bit of a nightmare. This being said makes the universal claim that seems to have been made over the blogsphere a little bit of a porkie but nevertheless I have really grown to like it.
I don’t really know what I was expecting when I first tried it as the pigmentation didn’t seem to show up on my skin until I’d either given a good 2 coats or drowned my brush in it but lesson learnt, less is more. For some reason, the lighting in my room seems to make this bush look near invisible until I get into natural lighting which isn’t the greatest thing to say the least. Just me? …Probably.
This is a perfect blush for flushed summer look for me, in the winter it’s just a little too golden for my ghostly skin tone but I keep reaching for this and it’s definitely working it’s way into my make up routine nonetheless!
