NARS Sin Blush

Would you believe that I only bought my first ever NARS blush in December 2013? I don't know why it has taken me this long, but I know it won't be the last!  NARS Sin may look a little boring in the pan, but when applied it is a lovely berry colour with a hint of gold shimmer, perfect for the Autumn and Winter months.  Paired with a nude or berry lip colour and you are good to go.

This blush is very soft and highly pigmented therefore do not need to use very much at all, if you do apply too much you can end up looking a little dirty or bruised.  Having said that it blends very nicely, so you can always rectify the problem. It also stays on with minimal fading and although it does contains shimmer, it is very subtle and leaves a lovely glowy sheen on your cheeks.

As for the packaging, I have a love hate relationship with it.  I love how minimalistic it is, much classier than MAC blush packaging, however the black casing will pick up dirty fingertips which are a pain to remove.  It is very sturdy and I do not worry about the product breaking in my make-up bag, like some that I may chuck about a little too much.

Overall I am highly impressed with NARS blush and I absolutely love Sin.  If you are concerned at shelling out that little more for NARS blush I would definitely say go ahead, they really are worth the money and will last you fora good few years.  As for Sin, go ahead and swatch it and you will see how beautiful it really is!

  1. I'm still a NARS virgin myself.
    I go to the counter and get so overwhelmed, I always come away empty handed. I love how you've described this blush, seems like it would be the perfect start to my NARS collection.
    Love x

  2. Ooh wow this is a beautiful colour! I love the NARS Laguna Bronzer :)

  3. Lovely colour! I don't use blush as it doesn't suit my skin tone and bronzer is better for it. I really like the look of these blushs though.
