About this deal

I should preface that I currently like shimmer blushes thanks to formulations from MAC which showed me that they could be done in a way that don’t look like I used a colored highlighter or shimmery eyeshadow as blush on my cheeks. This particular mini was the Sephora 2016 Rouge gift, so it’s “only” between five and six years old.

Our cult-favorite, bestselling NARS Blush delivers a weightless rush of cheek color in matte, satin, and shimmering finishes. I find Super Orgasm is great for a night out, where Orgasm is much more practical for every day use. I originally wanted that palette when it was first released, but reviews about the shades being nearly identical on the cheeks deterred me. Taj Mahal is a bright almost tangerine orange shade with a strong element of golden shimmer which leans fairly neutral in tone, okay admittedly it doesn't sound all that wonderful on paper but on mid to deeper skin tones it translates into something special. Pigment Power Suspension technology delivers incredible payoff and intense, longwear color via pigments suspended in a liquid binding system.

Please note NARS Eyeshadows are high performance formulas developed to be lightweight for increased blendability and instant payoff which may result in occasional dusting. My only issue is that the Nars packaging was missing the cardboard black insert that should have been included to protect the blush. Our cult-favourite, bestselling NARS Blush delivers a weightless, natural-looking rush of cheek colour in matte, satin, and shimmering finishes.

It’s a shame because it’s one of the few matte formulas from Nars that I have, but I’d rather give my attention to Liberte. This palette, along with the lighter Unfiltered II version, was released at the end of 2016, though it was intended to be a Spring 2017 launch. On me, whatever brown tones are in this are camouflaged against my skin tone and all I get is the golden orange shimmer on my cheek. I have a warm complection and red hair so I was not sure whether this shade would suit me but wanted to stretch the boundaries! My inner makeup goblin wanted me to look into the other non-shimmer Nars blushes, but as nice as they appear, I still prefer my MAC blushes over these.The biggest selling point for me was getting my hands on Taj Mahal, one of the beauty industry’s most famous orange blushes, and Exhibit A which I completely forgot I already owned.

Although it looks extremely intimidating in the pan, it can be sheered out to give a light flush to the skin.She has a light plus skintone with subtle, warmer yellow undertones ( view her foundation matches here). They apparently decided to bring it back within the past year and I'm nothing but happy, I'm not even going to ask questions. NARS blush delivers healthy-looking color that enlivens the complexion and provides a natural-looking flush to flatter any skin tone. All of their blushes are excellent quality as they last all day and always look so natural on nearly every skin tone.
