NARS DUAL INTENSITY BLUSHES



The moment I saw these blushes all over instagram, I knew it would be love! I've been a fangirl of NARS for years, and adored the dual intensity eyeshadows, so I knew the blushes wouldn't disappoint. 


The three colours I picked up were Adoration, Frenzy and Craving. At first swatch, which were the most pigmented shades of the range. While the price point of these delights are quite high, sitting $59AUD ($45USD) a pop, they're definitely worth it. The formula is lightweight, super blendable without an ounce of chalkiness.

The blushes are designed to be used both wet and dry. By wetting the blushes, it created a more subtle wash of colour over the cheeks, but being a more oily skin type I use these blushes dry to keep them on my cheeks for the whole day.


Adoration - The name of this product really suits this blush. The pinks are truly adorable. The main blush colour is a mid-toned pink, perfect for all skin tones. All the blushes have this sheen to them to give you that natural glow from within. The highlighter is a pearlized baby pink, which is beautifully complimentary to the main blush. 


Frenzy - This is my favourite combo, and would look fantastic with your holiday tan. The orange is very true to what you see in the pan, I pat my brush in this very lightly and dab off all the excess for that perfect coral flush on the cheeks. The gold highlighter is to die for, it always reminds me of that JLO glow!


Craving - A perfect bronzer and highlight duo, this pair if great for every day wear. I use the bronzer to warm up the face when I haven't had enough sleep and the highlighter reminds me a lot of Mary Lou Manizer, but instead of golden undertones it's more silvery. 

These blushes are a must have for any beauty lover, they are just a dream! Definitely one to put on the beauty wish list. I mean, it's Christmas in 7 months.
