Being possibly the most hyped-about blush around and first released in the Spring of 1999, it was only a matter of time before I caved and bought it for myself.
What could be seen as a brave move as I'd never even swatched the blush or actually tried anything from NARS, I bought the Limited Edition version, which is 85g of product as opposed to the regular 55g. Obviously, I had a good feeling about it.
As a peachy pink, the colour is absolutely perfect for my complexion and looks amazing. On me, this blush is actually more pink than it is peach, which I think looks lovely as I adore a girly, pale blush, with my usual favourite being Benefit's Dandelion, however I think this might just be my new go-to. I'm already eyeing up a similar shade from NARS with the slightly less subtle name of 'Deep-Throat' as it's described as a 'soft pink.'
Please note: I do not currently have a swatch photo as my camera battery went flat, and my boyfriend's old camera (which I was planning on using) is a bit rubbish. I'm sorry, but it's coming soon I promise!
The texture is perfect for a blush. I wouldn't quite describe it as creamy as it's a powder blush, however it is incredibly pigmented and only a couple of small swipes in the pan are required to get a wearable amount on the brush. It blends well and is slightly sheer, but build-able, so you're left with a beautiful, natural flush.
The staying-power is also pretty good, lasting me almost through an 8 hour shift, and only fading a little the last couple of hours. Overall, the blush stays looking pretty noticeable for a good 5 - 6 hours, then a little more subtle as the day wears on.
Do you own this cult-classic blush?
