This is probably NARS least pigmented blush, but I don't see this as a bad thing, in my NC20 skin it can be easily built to a natural color that defines my cheekbones like no other. This is my go-to blush when I want to look polished. It pairs beautifully with a red lip. I like to apply it with MAC 109 or 168, I find them good to build the color. And when I want the no make-up look, I can pretend I have cheekbones by using it lightly.
