NARS Blush in Sin


So there is no surprise when i have to admit i love NARS the brand for there pigmented powders and high end makeup with its oh so beautiful packaging, however not good for my OCD clean tendencies. 

So i have a lovely friend who loves NARS as much as me and we have a mutual love for there blushes, she surprisingly gifted me this beautiful blush in the shade - Sin this week. I cannot thank her enough as it really brightened a tough week emotionally for me. So hugs to my lovely girlie xx 

So to anyone wanting to know about this particular shade, may not know i have Mata hari and orgasm already plus laguna that was in the recent, Happening palate. Now i love dusky blushes and tend to go for a more muted tone for the daytime. I do like corals for spring and vibrant hits of blush if I'm really doing a fun look to jazz it up so my blushes fall into how my mood takes me, i suppose.

NARS Powder blush -Sin

So with the usual black and white NARS packaging and the clear insert included to protect the blush, you really can see that the blush is a deep berry coloured with hints of gold shimmers, so faint and finely milled to NARS high quality. High pigment and colour payoff, which also means that blending is really easy to do and it really doesn't in my opinion call for me to contour my face. This colour is so berry/dusky that any contour would take away from the beauty of the colour of the blush.

NARS blushes are so worth the investment in my opinion as they are so pigmented that the amount you use will be minimal so not likely to hit pan or need replacing for a good while. Plus i love fine milled powders that don't leave the skin feeling congested as you don't want to have to touch up to powder that feels heavy and clogging. Plus as I've used more NARS powders i can really feel the difference in blush with shimmers against competitors of the cheaper variety. Where you get a lot of fallout from the blush and down your face  not just on the cheek where you want it, with NARS the shimmer stays where you want it.  Now also I've rarely needed to touch up a application of blush during the day as the colour is so good in payoff and staying power. Now i have found some more affordable powders i love  as well so i have no aversion to high street blush, just sometimes a girl likes a bit of yummy in her life.
There formula is a cut above the rest, whilst i have some drug store blushes i do love and use for daily makeup i will always want to build my NARS blush collection to have more fun with looks and as part of my new year resolution to be more creative and bold with colour.

Now I'm going to be doing a review on The happening palate and the new light reflecting powder just released in compact form.

So do you own any NARS products ? Whats on your wish list ?
