NARS Blush Recap

Well that’s all folks! I’m making today a NARS blush recap, partly so I can put just one link in the “Hot Topics” section on the right side of the page, partly so you can see the pictures all together.

One of the most prevalent misconceptions about the brand is that all their blushes are sparkly. Not so! The following blushes are matte: Zen, Gilda, Gina, Amour, Dolce Vita, Desire, Mata Hari, and Exhibit A. (The others vary in sparkle size and density.)

One very astute reader pointed out (most graciously, I might add), that I have neglected to swatch Amour. I deeply regret that it was missing from my swatching counter and I failed to notice. I hate incomplete swatches, so I’ll make sure to collect it, and then update this post.

NARS blushes are $27. Go back to the original posts for more information, and my descriptions of the colors:
Albatross, Nico, Zen, and Silvana
Sertao, Luster, Madly, and Lovejoy
Gina, Gilda, Taos, and Taj Mahal
Sin, Oasis, Outlaw, Dolce Vita, and Crazed
Deep Throat, Orgasm, Super Orgasm, Torrid, and Mounia
Desire, Mata Hari, Angelika, and Exhibit A
Gold Member, Penny Lane, Gueule de Nuit, and Cactus Flower
Lokoum, Constantinople, Montenegro, Turkish Red

  • Livvie says:

    Thank you so much for the swatches! Your site is absolutely fantastic, I stumbled on this as I was looking for NARS swatches. I don’t like shopping at department stores because I *always* get sucked in to buying more than I should, even when I’m *only looking*, so your swatches have for me, been the best way to search for the right colour and texture.

  • CathleenM says:

    You never updated with Amour! I always come to your site to find swatches, it’s SO helpful! :)

  • KarlaSugar says:

    You’re right, Cathleen! Amour got swatched with a seasonal collection (http://karlasugar.net/2010/02/nars-spring-2010/). I keep meaning to do the whole range of blushes over, because I feel I’m a better swatcher now than I was when I did these.

  • XOSAM says:

    XOXO
