Stash Spotlight: NARS Blush

The Muse wonders, is there any dispute that NARS Blush is the best on the market?

Pigmented, silky, smooth, easy to blend, and amazing color selection makes NARS Blush a favorite with this Muse! It's no wonder I've stashed quite a few and use 'em daily!

Do you love NARS blush?

Which shades are your favorite?

Tell the Muse!

I only have one Nars blush, Mounia. I needed a red blush and this is just gorgeous:) So pigmented and, as everyone knows, a dab will do ya. Worth the $25usd.

Hmm, I have a ton of blushes, but no NARS. It's because the containers are square. I think I have square phobia. I always buy makeup in round or oval packaging. I just realized that lol. I'm insane!

Deep Throat is my fave. Orgasm is ok. I'm looking to get Sin next.

Nars Orgasm is the only Nars blush I own so far, but it's so incredibly wearable, I'm not surprised it's a best seller.

hello muse,

i have been a silent reader of yours for quite awhile now.=)
i too love the powder blushes by NARS and i have quite a few in my possession. My favourite color is Deep throat although Orgasm seems to be the cult favourite here. I do have the powder blush in Luster(lovely) and Lovejoy.

I'm a huge fan of Crazed. It's my go-to blush. I also have Orgasm (who doesn't?) that I tend to wear more in the summer.

Yes,there are much MUCH better blushes.
Chanel,Guerlain and Armani blushes are fantastic,try their pigments on one cheek and Nars on another you'll see yourself.
Nars is fine,as long as it is sporting along with MAC,IMHO they are of the same quality.

I love me some NARS blushes!!! (I've got 11 of 'em!)

Favorite color to use: Deep Throat

For the pigmentation you get for the price... these are the best blushes out there!

I love love love NARS blushers (I'm sticking with saying blushers even though I'm not from the UK)! I don't have such an extensive collection like you, but they are the only brand of blushers that I have multiples of. It started with Orgasm (what else), then Sin, and most recently, Super Orgasm. Then I have a bronzer called Ninotchka.

LOVE them to death

Much love for the NARS blush... although I'm the first to admit that $29 for one blush is a fair chunk of change compared to $21 CAD for a MAC one. However, I'm not a huge collector of blushes, so I feel as though it's a justifiable purchase =)
Dolce Vita is my favorite one by far, followed by Oasis.

hi Anonymous!

So glad you have other favorites. Personally nars is a fav of mine. Chanel, Guerlain, and Armani all make fab blushes as well. For me NARS is a personal fav.

I personally think mac and nars are a tiny bit different.

Thanks for sharing.

I'm totally a huge fan of blush. I'm dying want to try Nars but sadly, there's no Nars in my country until one day my friend sent me a Nars blush which she bought in Bangkok. I was super exited! She bought me Deep Throat and since that i love Nars blush more than anything else..I put aside all my Nars!!

Hi Muse,

I just got my hands on my first NARS blush in Deep Throat and the colour makes me glow! =) What other colours would you recommend that I try? I use MAC Sheer Pressed Powder in NC25. Unfortunately, I've no access to NARS in my country and I had such an agonising time choosing a shade online that I'm hoping you can help me pick up a few shades =)

hi anonymous!

w00t! Awesome :) it's a fab color isn't it!? Hmmmm it really depends do you like bold shades or more natural shades?

Do tell me a bit more about colors you like or used before and maybe I can rec something!

Hi Muse,

My cheeks broke out in rashes after just one day of application of Deep Throat. It's most unfortunate. I think I'll give it a try again after the rashes subside. I hope it's just an isolated case of coincidence.

Now I'm eagerly waiting for my brother-in-law to bring back Benefit Coralista from US. I've a weakness for blush and I can't stop buying them. Hee.... Oh, I'm from Singapore btw :)

February 18, 2009 at 12:08 AM  
Blogger the Muse said...

hi anonymous

oh no :( I hope it's not Deep Throat that did it :P Maybe it's just a fluke!?

I hope it clears up soon darling!

YAYAYAYAYAY form coralista best blush evers! You're going to adore it :)

w00t love my singaporean girls :)

NARS has the best blushes, no contest. High pigment, great colors and super fine powders. So far I have Amour, Luster, Sertao, Silvana, Madly, Lovejoy and Angelika. I also have Albatross highlighter and Laguna bronzer. I still want to get: Oasis, Sin and Gina.

I have the same problems. I have small bumps all over my cheeks after I applied nars blush. I think I will only use it for special occasion. I have no problem with other blushers, even the cheap ones.

hi snowy!

I haven't experienced small bumps on my cheeks using this blush?

that's strange.
