NARS Luster Blush ($29 Cdn) is my latest obsession. Yeah, I have had this blush for months but it didn’t catch my fancy until right about now. Actually, that’s a lie, when I first bought it, I knew it would fit right in with me in the warmer months. It is just the most gorgeous (now I hope I don’t sound redundant) golden sheen on cheeks. On my cheeks, for the very least!
What I love the most about it is that it is very effortless, simply put! I am someone who loves bronzer, but for the most part always forgets to put it on. Since this blush is so warm, without being overly pink or well, pink at all – it can easily let you forgo that step. I am not insisting that it is a valid replacement for a bronzer, but yes, it will add the right amount of warmth to your face. So if you are someone who puts on bronzer for the sake of warmth, then this does act like a replacement. Not only does this make the perfect every day blush for the warmer months, it looks super hot with a bold red lip.
The texture is silky smooth, highly pigmented and applies beautifully. This blush is best suited for warm toned gals as it complements the warmth quite nicely. I really, really like this blush a lot – bravo, NARS, you have done it again!
Overall thoughts: This blush is a perfect everyday blush for warmer skin tones for summers. It adds the right amount of sheen to the cheeks and blends just right in. A must have, almost!
