NARS New Order Highlighting Blush

NARS New Order Blush ($27.00 for 0.16 oz.) is described as a “soft pink with gold and silver glitter.” It’s actually listed as a “Highlighting Blush Powder,” which is important to note because then the pigmentation level here will be “soft” as described, rather than the intense pigment expected of NARS’ blushes. When NARS says glitter, they really mean it–the glitter flecks here are large and in charge. I found them incredibly noticeable on my cheeks, and later on, I found glitter in my brows and on my chin.

While a couple particles escaping wouldn’t have been a major cause for concern, the way the glittery bits just laid on the skin wasn’t flattering. It was obvious and accentuated any roughness in the texture of your skin. Instead of the glowy, luminous sheen of Albatross (which is NARS only other Highlighting Blush Powder), we have chunky glitter doing the reflecting–less glow, more disco ball, I suppose! The color of the product is a soft, cool-toned pink, and I was able to get some color on cheeks, though I would expect those with dark skin tones to find it too light. I found the texture to be on the powdery side, too.
