NARS Blush in Desire

Can you believe that this is my first ever NARS blush? It’s pretty surprising considering I’m such a blusher girl and never shy away from bold and intense shades – something NARS blushers are famous for. I've wanted this shade for a while and finally got it as a birthday present a few weeks ago from my boyfriend. I've been wearing it everyday since I got it, I'm completely smitten with the beautiful shade. 

NARS Blush in Desire (£21.50) is a striking, bright pink powder blush with a matte finish, described on the NARS website as cotton candy pink. It's quite a daring and very attention grabbing shade, but still manages to look oh so flattering and pretty against my fair skin. I love how these types of shades really lift my complexion and give a fresh look to my cheeks, they create an almost doll-like look which I just adore. I'm so impressed with the staying power of this blush too; even after a few hours of wear the colour never seems to fade, it's still bright and looks so fresh.

NARS blushers are known for being very pigmented, and this one is no exception, you really need the lightest hand possible so you don't go overboard (I'm speaking from experience here). I like to use my Real Techniques blush brush to gently sweep this across my cheeks, the formula of these blushers make them very easy to blend, so if you're not too heavy handed you can't go wrong. 

This blusher is truly amazing, Desire is just so stunning and gives a lovely, soft pop of colour to my cheeks that makes my complexion look so perky and healthy. I'm already wondering which shade from the brand I should purchase next. 

Are you fan of NARS blushers?
