The ultimate authority in blush, NARS offers the industry’s most iconic shades for cheeks. Natural, healthy-looking color that immediately enlivens the complexion. A light application of even the highest-intensity hues delivers a natural-looking flush.
NARS Blushes need no introduction. They are well known for classy matte black packaging, incredibly smooth texture, rich pigmentation & astounding long wear. Where the packaging defines luxury , has a drawback of attracting dirt & very much prone to finger prints. So make sure you store these beauties carefully.
Although the blush is matte, the texture is buttery soft without any chalkiness. One only needs a slight touch of brush in the pan & you have enough colour on your cheeks. If swiped or swirled in the pan, results in excess product on the brush & can give clown cheeks. I have never seen this fading from my skin. A single swipe of blush on my cheeks wears for whole day & the rich pigmentation makes them bloom with colour. A small amount goes long way & it will take years to finish up the pan. These are one of the best blushes I have ever used & irrespective of the steep price, they are definitely an investment.
Shade Dolce Vita:
It is matte dusty rose shade & NARS describes this bang on. Although my hand swatch looks very unappealing but on cheeks it comes out to be one of the most beautiful pink blush. I don’t know why it doesn’t brings out that hint of pink in the dustiness of shade on my hand but on my cheeks the slight pink hint balances the muddiness giving a very beautiful rosy pink flush without being too bright.
PS: I forgot about my problem of swatch variation on hands & face.
The shade looks different across the skin tones & will show up on everyone. Duskier tones can use this for contouring too. If you are not able to carry those rosy cheeks due to shade intensity, I would highly recommend trying Dolce Vita. The dustiness is aptly balanced by the hint of pink this shade carries making your cheeks blooming like roses. A MUST HAVE from NARS!
