The colour selection, formulas and finishes of the blushes are fabulous! You have everything from pretty baby pinks to bold reds and oranges. NARS has a blush to suit all tastes and all skin tones. When it comes to the finishes, you have matte, shimmery and glitter bombs! Most of which have quite a smooth texture and strong pigment to boot. Oh and let us not forget the risqué names! I was never one to use the words “Orgasm” or “Deep Throat” in casual conversation before I met the magic of NARS.

So today I thought I would share my NARS blush collection with you. I will have to split the post into 2 parts though, me thinks all the swatches might get a bit OTT in just the one post haha. Enjoy!
Montenegro - Rich Mahogany. Great colour for the winter, giving you that lovely dewy flush you get from the cool outdoors
Cactus Flower - Delicate shimmering poppy. Adore this bright colour with a subtle gold shimmer :)
Penny Lane - Nude pink. The first blush I ever hit pan on, this is my second one! I wore it like everyday for months. Great for subtle cheeks or layering underneath powder blushes to increase longevity
Mounia – Cinnamon Coral (discontinued). Stunning berry coral, shimmery blush. Love it for winter, just remember to apply with a very light hand!
Exhibit A - Matte vivid red. Scary bright in the pan but gorgeous and natural on the cheeks. Especially fab for those with yellow undertones.
Desire - Delicate bright pink. Another bright one… got to love that gorgeous Barbie pink!
Lovejoy - Shimmering bronzed rose. Darker skin tones will adore this rosy bronze
Madly - Seashell pink. A great one for you fairer beautiesAlbatross - Sheer light golden sheen. My go-to powder illuminator! I reach for this one most days when I’m using powder blush.
