Blissful

NARS Blissful Blush ($30.00 for 0.16 oz.) is a medium-dark plum with warm, rose undertones and flecks of gold, plum, and teal shimmer that yielded a luminous sheen. It might be one of the more complex blushes that NARS has released in awhile. According to the brand, while it’s new for fall, it wasn’t marked limited edition so we should expect to see it as part of the permanent line going forward.

From NARS’ website, their blush formula is described as “beautifully pigmented” and “soft [and] blendable.” Blissful was fairly soft–it could have been more finely-milled–but had good pigmentation that was semi-opaque in a single layer but buildable to full coverage with a second layer, which I tend to find makes for a more versatile cheek color and gives the user more control over application. There were finer and larger flecks of shimmer but they stayed largely in place throughout the day. The blush blended out well on the skin, and the shimmery finish did not emphasize my skin’s natural texture. On me, the color wore well for eight and a half hours before fading slightly.

Aya

NARS Aya Audacious Lipstick ($34.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a deep, chocolatly brown with subtle, warm undertones and a creamy finish paired with a soft sheen. It had opaque color payoff in a single layer, which applied evenly and smoothly across the lips and never tugged. The lipstick felt moderately creamy, not too thin or too thick, and sat fairly well on the lips, though there was enough slip that it was noticeable on the lips. I did not experience any feathering over the five and a half hours this shade wore for, and the formula was lightly hydrating overall.

Formula Overview

For fall, NARS released six new shades of NARS Audacious Lipstick, one of their more luxurious, but bestselling, formulas. For those unfamiliar with the range, the lipstick is supposed to have “full-coverage, creamy wear” that’s “long-lasting” and hydrating. I tend to find most of those claims to be true except that not all shades are hydrating (usually lightly hydrating to non-drying) and wear has been between four and eight hours depending on the shade with richer reds and the like wearing longest.
