Beauty NARS CREAM BLUSH IN CACTUS FLOWER 23 February 2015

NARS creme blush in Hibiscus

I’ve got two little NARS products to talk about today!

Well, actually I’ll just briefly mention the first one: NARS Pressed Powder. It’s a wonderful pressed powder that is also excellent for travel because of the sleek compact. I don’t use it with the (lousy, IMHO) thin scraggly pad that it comes with, but rather my large Stila powder brush. It picks up just enough product without wastage, and deposits a sheer and light veil of powder (as opposed to using a pad where you end up using a much heavier hand).

This is awesome when I use it to set my foundation, when I want a super refined look for going out. But, I also dust it over my face on top of tinted moisturizer, and it sets it so well (no oiliness!) to last me through the day. Been using this daily and I love it!

 

OK, so the second product is the main reason for this post: NARS cream blush. This is kind of like the exact opposite of the Dior Cheek & Lip Glow that I talked about just a few days ago – they both give such different results, yet I like both.

So this is the NARS cream blush in Cactus Flower, swiped straight out of the pan and applied with a heavy hand. You’ll see the absolutely GORGEOUS colour here – a luscious, girly pink-coral with loads of micro gold shimmer infused through it.

The colour nearly made my heart stop when I saw it. It does look alarmingly bright in the pan, not to mention with enough glitter to overexcite a toddler.

But, when applied, it sheers out beautifully…

It gives a really darling flush to the cheeks, and the gold glitter tones down to a soft glimmer. It looks really pretty against matte skin and paired with nude lips.

Only downside? Longevity isn’t as long as a cheek stain. And, it’s discontinued. Well, guess there’s always eBay!
