NARS DESIRE Blush is described as Cotton Candy Pink and has matte finish , on SEPHORA they are priced at $ 28 + tax which is roughly 1700/- INR . I picked this from HERE for 1800/- INR , but as I purchased 6 items at a time I received 15 % off so I paid 1550/- INR for this blush . CALCULATIONSSS !!!
NARS DESIRE is the latest addition in my stash , I originally wanted NARS ANGELIKA as last time my parcel was stolen for which I still feel bad at times . So , my eyes were on Pink blush , so far I have all the corals , peach and brown shades from NARS , this being matte finish was perfect choice and glad I picked this .
NARS DESIRE is bright cool toned magenta pink shade which scared me like hell and I was actually speechless the time I opened the pan for the first time … NARS = AWESOME PIGMENTATION . But , it is repeated many a times , don’t judge NARS Blush by their pigmentation or texture !! They always work for me if I pay attention . They are certainly not the layering blush but you can use light hand to diffuse the color on cheeks or use a stippling blush if you are not confident and are scared of the color . It stays for good 7 – 8 hrs on me without fading and leaving patches .
It is not as soft as NARS TAOS is and not stiff as NARS MOUNIA , it is in between and can be worked easily and will work across skin tone . I am NC 40 and it shows on my skin perfectly , if you are little lighter it will look even more beautiful ,m if you are around NC 43 + then you might need a little bit of layering .
It is scary / shocking neon pink in pan but on cheeks the color is very wearable , just needs to be coordinated with pink lips or something in same color family . I feel , as am warm toned the cool toned blush looks great , but this is what I think …
The other Pink Blush from NARS which I have is NARS MATA HARI , but this is so full of life as it has that hot pink undertones while Mata Hari is more like Violet Pink , nevertheless I love both of these and find them great if you love pink blushes .
And this is how the blush looks on my NC 40 skin tone :
I hope you find the review helpful ? How do you like the color on me ??
