NARS Luster

I hauled NARS' Luster blush back in April, which you can see here, and I've been in love ever since! I normally wear red or pink blushes, and Luster was the first blush I've ever used in this colour family. I'm a huge NARS fan, I own quite a few of their blushes, and I love them all. If you're new to NARS as a brand, I highly recommend checking out their blushes first :)

NARS Luster


Oh, how I love NARS packaging :) I loved wearing Luster in the Summer, since it doubles as a blush/bronzer. Now, I would still wear a separate bronzer (Benefit's Hoola), but Luster brings a nice bronzed look to your cheeks. I find NARS blushes so easy to use, they are so pigmented that you only need a little bit. These are the best blushes I have used, as they are highly pigmented, smooth, last all day, and come in a beautiful range of shades. I can apply Luster at 8:00 a.m., and I can still see blush on my cheeks when I remove my makeup at 11:00 p.m.! I've never had another blush last that long on my skin! I don't have oily skin, but I do think that even those with oily skin types would enjoy NARS blushes.

I've been wearing Luster most days for the past couple of months, I just love it! This blush is so wearable and versatile, it won't clash with any eye look or lip colour that you wear. Luster would look great on any skin tone. This is a bronze apricot with golden shimmers. I love to pair this with NARS Albatross or Dior Amber Diamond as highlighters. I've also discovered that Luster is beautiful when mixed with NARS Deep Throat! I might do a separate post on that combo :)

This is one of my holy grail blushes, and I highly, highly recommend it! NARS blushes are pricey, at $32 CAD for 4.8g, but they are most definitely worth every penny. I buy mine from Sephora, but it seems as though the recent VIB sale has wiped out their stock in almost all of the NARS blush shades. They should be available in stores, or on the NARS site though.

Have you tried Luster or any other NARS blushes? Which ones are your favourites? :)
