My NARS Blush/Bronzer Collection

Image

You all probably know about the hype surrounding NARS blushes. All I can add to the dialogue is that all of the praise is deserved. I am a true blush junkie and my NARS blushes are some of my favourites. The texture and staying power of these bad boys is truly nothing short of a miracle. The colours they come in are splendid and NARS packaging is just divine. I thought I would dedicate a little post on this blog to one of the most loved areas of my makeup collection.

Clockwise from the top red: Dolce Vita, Luster, Satellite Of Love, Sin and Madly

My top favourites would have to be Albatross, Luster, Madly and Laguna. Dolce Vita is a tough one to wear just because it is so darn pigmented and I have had to train my often heavy-handed blush hand to be a little more light-handed. Orgasm is a classic. Satellite Of Love is the perfect sparkly, shimmery highlight, which I know some people hate but I love. Sin is also another classic and its perfect for this time of year. When the time comes, I plan on picking up Douceur, Gilda and Lovejoy to add to my collection.

  1. May be a little pricey but well worth it. Lasts for years, especially if you love color and wear a bunch of different colors. I have Angelika, Sin, Orgasm, Lovejoy, Taos, and Taj Mahal. Yes, most of these need just a very light touch of the brush to the color (Taj Mahal, lookin’ at you!) but I love them. I am just getting to the bottom of the pan in Angelika and Sin after about 4 years. These are the first colors I’ve bought. But even so, I won’t need to replace them until at least next year. And the newest additions to the collection were Lovejoy and Orgasm, purchased this year.

    • Sounds like you have a great collection! Seems like you really enjoy the *BAM* shades and I do not blame you because they are stunning. Thank you for the lovely comment!

      • Thank you! Well, I’m a medium to deep skin tone so I need the color to show up.

        Orgasm is so very sheer and faint on me, Lovejoy is actually better for showing up against my skintone. But I like Orgasm for that ‘not really wearing blush’ look that I want sometimes depending on how much color I’ve put on eyes and lips.

        I personally like a little shimmer to the blush, so the matte colors I generally don’t buy. But the New Order highlighter was just over the top, it was a glitter bomb. That last blush release, Seduction – now THAT hot mama is next on my list.

    • Oooo I just googled a swatch and it sure is beautiful. I’ll definitely have to add this one to the wishlist. I highly recommend Sin for the autumn, it just works so well for a deep flush look. Thanks for the lovely comment!
