NARS Luster Blush
Add New Luster to Your Blush Routine
NARS Luster Blush ($28.00 for 0.21 oz.) is described as a “sheer golden apricot.” It’s a tangerine orange with golden orange sheen. MAC Solar Ray is lighter. MAC Center of the Universe is similar but has less of a golden sheen. MAC Paradise has more red in it.
The texture feels soft like silk, and it’s one of the denser, creamier blushes I’ve come by from NARS (and this seems consistent with their eyeshadows–the more shimmery ones tend to have the same buttery texture). The color payoff can be sheer if you like, but it can be built up to more true-to-pan color, which makes it something that both paler and deeper complexions can use. The sheen is noticeable but is just that, a sheen, rather than heavily shimmered. It did not emphasize my pores or natural imperfections on my skin. Luster lasted just over seven hours on my skin before I saw noticeable fading.
