NARS recently launched a new line of blushes and while their multiple sticks and powder blushes are insanely popular, I think this new liquid blush formula may be as big a hit! I’m not typically a liquid or cream blush/cheek product user so I wasn’t sure what to expect from them, but since it was NARS I knew it would be one thing – PIGMENTED. Ha!
The new formula comes in 4 existing shades: Torrid, Orgasm, Dolce Vita and Luster. I forgot to remove the cap in these pictures, but there is a pump dispenser that makes it easy to use and control. Now on to the swatches and how it performs on the skin.

From bottom to top: Torrid, Luster, Orgasm and Dolce Vita
To give you an idea of just how pigmented these are, the first picture is with only ONE PUMP. And that was a tiny pump! The formula allows for adequate drying time so you aren’t racing against the clock to apply and blend, but once it dries down it stays put all day. While it is long wearing, it doesn’t stain the skin and I found it easy to remove with just my nighttime cleanser. My favorite shade to wear is Orgasm as I find it gives a beautiful peachy glow to the cheeks. However, the other 3 shades need a very light hand if you have fair skin. But the upside to that is I think these will be suitable for most skin tones because of their rich pigmentation and ability to be blended out if necessary. I initially was using my finger to apply and buff out with a beautyblender, but also enjoy applying with a buffing brush for a more airbrushed finish.
These were a total surprise for me and a product I did not anticipate loving as much as I do! I definitely think it is worth picking one or two up to play with and the spring/summer is the perfect time to add in a liquid blush to one’s routine.
