I recently ordered my very first NARS product, NARS blush in Sin.  Usually, makeup fanatics opt to buy NARS’ Orgasm blush, however, I wanted to try something different, especially since I swatched orgasm and really didn’t see what the hoopla was about.  This was my first NARS purchase because their products are a little on the expensive side, and I do not get a discount (just keeping it real).  I can’t fathom spending $26 on ONE product unless it’s something that I really love…. wait, I did spend that much on the YSL Touche Eclat, but that I can say was worth it.



The NARS Sin blush is the perfect plum with gold shimmer blusher.   It’s not overbearingly shimmery, and can most definitely be worn by most, if not, all skintones.  It’s especially flattering on women of color.  It’s also the perfect blush for this season.  Since it’s such a flattering shade, it will look well with most makeup looks, especially natural – giving you a nice, natural glow.



It is best applied with a light hand and using a duo-fibre brush.  Make sure you blend well!
