NARS Final Cut Blush

NARS Final Cut Blush ($30.00 for 0.16 oz.) is described as a “peach coral.” It’s a warm-toned, muted medium orange with a hint of pink. The color is more complex than it seems initially, but I think this is a shade that may look pinker or more orange depending on your natural undertones, as it looks more peachy-orange in some lighting, and then coral in the next room. Fyrinnae Nordic Angel (P, $6.50) is slightly pinker. MAC Passion for Colour (LE, $20.00) is also a smidgen pinker. Chanel Presage (62) (LE, $38.00) is darker, cream. Edward Bess Secret Affair (P, $43.00) is pinker, more shimmery. NARS Gilda (P, $29.00) is darker, not as flat of a matte. MAC Early Morning (LE, $25.00) is darker. Chanel Frivole (P, $43.00) is darker. See comparison swatches. (You can see it on The Dupe List here!)

This shade is part of NARS’ Final Cut collection, which is a Nordstrom exclusive (in the states).  I reviewed all of the other shades from the collection here. The texture was incredibly soft, velvety, and finely-milled. I had no problems getting true-to-pan color, and applied on my medium skin tone, it’s a soft, coral-y flush, though not a strong, intense shade. It blends beautifully and easily, so it feels like a foolproof blush that can be worn every day and applied in a hurry. It wore well for almost eight hours on before showing signs of fading along the edges.
