My NARS Blush collection with swatches

Hi beauty lovers! Hope everyone is having a great week. I'm so looking forward to this weekend and catching up on some much needed rest. :)

I just wanted to share my little NARS blush collection with you, as well as a NARS bronzer and NARS multiple. Basically all my NARS stuff that is used on my cheeks. :)

I am a huge fan of the blushes. I picked up Orgasm several years ago, and I've been hooked ever since. I really find them super pigmented and top quality! I wish I owned every single one, but for now I'm happy with my little collection.


 
Dolce Vita
 
Orgasm
 
Exhibit A

Taos

 
Mata Hari
 
Sin
 
Albatross
 
Nico
 
Nars Multiple in Copacabana

Mini NARS Bronzer in Laguna

Left to right without flash: Mata Hari, Sin, Albatross, Nico. Sorry the last two shades are so hard to see!

I love most all of these shades. I'd say I wear Orgasm, Exhibit A and Taos the most. Albatross makes a lovely highlighter and Nico for me is pretty much useless. I've read ladies say it is to be used as a setting powder. I just don't find it a particularly good one. I know that Exhibit A looks very scary in the pan, but I assure you that when it is lightly stippled on it's just beautiful! I've had this for a couple years, and I've used it quite a bit, and there is not a dent in it! I also adore Laguna. It is a true bronze shade that doesn't turn red on me, and it has a lovely shimmer.

Next on my list is Desire, which looks like the perfect pink shade to me. :)

You can find all of these shades at Sephora.

Do you own any NARS blushes? Which are your faves?

Thanks so much for reading! :)

    I picked up a couple of the ELF blushes which look similar recently. But I will have to splurge on a NARS one soon!

  8. I'm so jealous. I need money, please!
    What is copacabana? Is it a bronzer?
    Love your stash!!! Always have, always will! Xo

    1. Lol! I've been collecting them for years. I need money too so I can buy the whole collection! Your bday is coming up though...get your wish list ready. :) Copacabana is a "Multiple" an "original multi-purpose stick for eyes, cheeks, lips and body" but I just use it on my cheeks. It's a nice highlight for summer.

      My stash and I love you! xo

  11. They look lovely, I am loving the look of Aalbatross.
    Exhibit A scares me a bit, id probably put on way too much by accident and look like a clown.

    1. LOL! I know how scary it looks. It's easy to go overboard with it and definitely takes a really light hand. :) Thanks for reading, Angela! \

  19. Amazing post of NARS blushes. :) I am obsessed with these. :D I see a few favorites here too. Orgasm, hands down, is an all-time favorite. I like and have Taos and Exhibit A too. (Except Exhibit A can look a bit crazy on me, so I end up putting a little bit of it. Hehe...) I like the rest of your NARS blush collection too. I've been wanting Mata Hari, but I guess I'll have to order it online because I can't find it in the store.

    Thanks for leaving a sweet compliment on my blog post. I hope you'll get to find Veronica's Blush Pearlmatte in a CCO, maybe. Thanks also for sharing your NARS blush swatches here. Take care and Happy Friday. :)

  23. I love beauty blogs because I can ooooogle at all pretty things :D I don't own any NARS product but I heard a lot of people raving about orgasm and I think it is a very wearable blush. I like bright blushes because I get tanned easily so exhibit A draws my attention :D Lighter blushes dont work on me cause it probably won't show up. :D Loving your collection lady. And thank you for visiting my blog.
