My Nars Blush Collection 2012 (Swatches)

Nars Blush and Bronzer

Blushers are very important aspect of makeup because they instantly bring life back to your face. If I had to choose only 1 colour product I can wear on my face (excluding foundation), I will choose a blush over eye shadow or lip stick any day. So as you can expect, I own a lot of blushers from drug store brands to high end brands. Among all the blushers I own, I always find myself reaching for Nars blushers, because they simply has best colour pay off and texture. So today, I would like to share my Nars Blush collection. This post is picture heavy!

Nars Blush Swatch 01

Desire, Gina and Zen are matte colours, and Lovejoy, Orgasm, and Madly have very delicate shimmer in them. As you can see, Desire and Gina are a lot more pigmented than some of the other colours because they are matte. Obviously I would not wear them so dark on my cheeks but those are the colour that I need to be more careful when I apply. You may think Lovejoy, Madly and Zen look very much alike but they are quite different in person. Lovejoy is more rosey and it is more red than the other 2. Madly has nice soft pink undertone. Zen is more like a bronzer to me. I use Zen in stead of Laguna when I really don’t want any shimmer on my face.

Nars Blush Bronzer Swatch

Laguna is definitely my favourite bronzer and I use it quite often. It just gives my face really nice golden glow but not too shimmery. It’s probably really hard to see Albatross in the photo, but it is a very nice almost colourless highlight colour. It has slightly yellowish champagne undertone which just give you a beautiful glow. I tend to use it when I’m wearing matte blush.

During the spring and summer, my favourite blush to wear is Gina. Although it looks quite orange in the photo, it shows up a little more apricot on my cheeks and it makes me look really healthy and youthful. During the winter, my favourites are Lovejoy and Madly. They both look very sophisticated and stylish.

Although Nars blushes are expensive (CA$32 + tax), I really think they are worth the money. I just feel like I will never hit pan on these blushes because I only use so little every time. I definitely plan on buying more in the future.

So what do you think of Nars Blushes? What is your favourite blush (Nars or other)? Let me know in the comment section!
