NARS blush review,

My NARS blush collection is now somewhat insane!  I appear to be on a mission to collect them all! Here are my thoughts on my latest three purchases.

Unlawful is my favourite of the three-it's a warm dusky rose with an almost terracotta undertone to it.  It has very visible silver sparkle in the pan but it doesn't translate much to the face.  It applies evenly and lasts all day.

Lustre is very shimmery on application and has a high frost finish with glitter.  Described as a golden apricot it has strong yellow undertones.  You definitely don't need any additional highlight with this shade.  I am not 100% sure this shade is for me-I have quite a lot of redness and unevenness in my skintone and I think with a more even toned, tanned complexion it would work well.  Having said that, I did find that later in the day the glitter and high frost did subside leaving a very pretty glow to the cheeks.

Gina is a completely matte orange blush.  It is not chalky or powdery and can be used with a very delicate hand for a pretty flush to the skin (the only way I can wear it) or for a much bolder pop of colour.

Overall the formula of NARS blushes is superb and they offer versatility in terms of the pigmentation so you can create a variety of effects-from a subtle wash of colour to a more striking statement cheek.  The packaging remains my bugbear-the black rubberised finish attracts dust, dirt, fingerprints, the lot but NARS do seem to be moving away from that with their recent launches so it may transcend across the whole range.

What is your favourite NARS blush?  My all time favourite remains as Deep Throat!
