Favourite NARS Blushes

I became utterly obsessed with NARS' blushes a few years back, and I still love them today. NARS offers a ton of powder blush shades, and I thought that I would share my top four with you today! If you're looking to try out a few products from NARS, I highly recommend starting with their powder blushes, they're just incredible. The formula is smooth, pigmented, and long-wearing


1. Sin (reviewed here) - Sin is a beautiful berry blush with golden shimmer in the formula. This is my ideal Fall/Winter blush shade, and it's gotten a ton of love this year! Do use a light hand with this blush, or else it can start to look a bit muddy.


2. Angelika (reviewed here) - This is one of NARS' blushes that I never hear anyone talking about! Angelika is a beautiful cotton candy pink with silver shimmer/glitter.  I do find that the glitter doesn't quite make it onto my cheeks, which I'm perfectly okay with. I reach for this blush a lot in the Spring and Summer months as it's a beautiful pop of colour without being too bold. 


Left to Right: Lustre, Sin, Angelika, Deep Throat

3. Luster (reviewed here) - Sorry, I can't seem to find a picture of me wearing this blush! Luster is the perfect bronzey blush with a golden sheen to it. I've actually been mixing this with NARS' Sin lately, and that combo is beautiful. Luster also looks gorgeous in the Summer when I have a bit of a tan.


4. Deep Throat (reviewed here) - I feel like this is one of NARS' more popular blushes, and it's definitely the one that I've put the biggest dent in. When I first bought this blush I think I wore it every single day for two months! Deep Throat is a coral with a pinky sheen to it. This shade is very similar to NARS' famous Orgasm blush, but I prefer Deep Throat. This is another blush that mixes really well with a ton of different blushes. I also love it to tone down shades that I applied too heavily or that are a bit too bright. 


So there you have it, my favourite NARS blushes! I would love to know which shades you own & love, as I'm a blush junkie and I'm always wanting to add a new blush to my collection! Right now I'm lusting over Douceur, Outlaw, and Madly. NARS blushes are $33 CAD/0.16 oz, which is a bit pricey but I definitely think that the quality is worth it.

  9. I only have a small mini size of Nars Orgasm and so far I'm not all that impressed. We're lucky to have Sleek here and their blushes are so pigmented and on a par with Nars at a fraction of the price.

    1. I also have a mini of Orgasm and it's not my favourite, I find the formula of that one a bit chunky!

  12. NARS blush twins! I have all of these as well, though I haven't used all of them as much as I should. Sin's always around but I need to give some love to the rest of the bunch.
