NARS Blushes Review

I never been unhappy about anything from NARS cosmetics… so, with my addiction I hauled 3 powder blushes, these are…

Nars Gilda

1 NARS Blushes

A perfect natural blush for my NC20 skin, that adds a hint of color to my cheeks. I so love all the Nars matte blushes texture. Gilda is a matte coral blush best suited for cool toned skin tone, as it has pink tinged to it..  correct me if I’m wrong.
  • great shade for summer months
  • gives out a natural “blushed” look
  • very well pigmented… blends beautifully in skin, buildable.
  • matte, velvety, finely milled-not powdery or chalky.
  • good staying power.. doesn’t fade completely
  • could be too orangey for some
  • black rubber case is like a dirt magnet

Nars Orgasm

2  pretty warm peachy pink shade with gold shimmer

This is one of my favorite blushes- pretty warm peachy pink shade with gold shimmer. Gives me the most amazing rosy dewy cheeks ever.. classic, very well-known, cult’s favorite. It has been claimed as universally-flattering for all skin tones from milky to chocolatey! 
  • the shade is versatile, can be used on most skin tone.
  • gives the glowy and dewy look because of the shimmer.
  • you can never have the “clown” look as the shade is subtle and yet buildable
  • soft in texture, finely milled-not powdery.
  • Good staying power.. last more than a half day.
  • a little too shiny or oily looking for some
  • case gets dirty easily-you could see lot of excess powder and shimmer.
  • if your brush is too fluffy and large, color might be hardly seen for some.

Nars Desire

3 Nars Desire

Described as “cotton candy pink” by Nars. Yes, I agree.. it looks shockingly pink in the pot! However, with the proper application, using a light hand and right tool- like a stippling brush, or any large fluffy blush brush on just the apples of the cheeks, it creates a gorgeous sheer pink, that works well to brighten and prettify.

  • very well pigmented.. blends beautifully in skin, build able and just a small amount is needed.
  • no shimmers or sparkles.. matte, velvety, and finely milled.
  • good staying power.. it lasts all day
  • could be easily overdone 
  • the black rubber case is like a dirt magnet
  • pricey for some
