NARS’ Taj Mahal! This is sooo pretty in the pan, but I rarely ever wear it because it just doesn’t flatter me the same way it does other people. It’s not that it looks bad; I can make it work, but it takes more effort and even then it still isn’t the best on me. I sure love to look at it, though!

Tom Ford! I lust after those blushes, they’re supposed to be amazing, but even though I’ll pay a lot for makeup I have a hard time swallowing the $55 price tag. Also I can’t see them in-store and I’m hesitant to buy online without looking at it in person. Are they really *that* awesome?

Tarte Amazonian Clay blushes-they are all so lovely, but quite expensive for a teenager’s limited budget lol. I only have Dollface, but there are a couple that I think I need to own soon. 🙂

NARS Sin; although I really want it, and I know it will work very well on me, I just can’t bring myself to buy it any time soon. There are just several other items I’m currently lemming that I know will get more use, as I’m not really big on blush. I do swatch it every time I’m at Sephora or a NARS counter, though…

I have lusted over Laura Mercier Second Skin blush in “Lush Nectarine” for several months. I won’t let myself get it until I finish two of: Milani Luminoso, Josie Maran Fiction (in a face palette), and Tarina Tarantino Feather. I’ve got some dips going in the first two — whoo hoo!

It’s not particular shades but rather lines of blush that I lust for but don’t buy because I already have so many. That said, I particularly want more Tarte Amazonian clay blushes (Peaceful in particular, but there are others that catch my eye) and the new Kat Von D blushes – gah the textures are amazing!

I agree on Exhibit A and Mata Hari for me as well, I just never get around to purchasing them. There are also a number of MAC pro blushes that look gorgeous. I rediscovered NARS Mounia tonight- wow! I did not realize it had been discontinued, I cannot fathom why.

The TOM FORD blushes! I would love to buy “wicked”, but it’s just sooo expensive, especially here in Europe (55€!!!) And I do buy high end products and am willling to spend more money for better quality, packaging, etc., but this is just too much. I feel ridiculed by the brand….but still, the colours are sooo pretty!

Where in Europe do you buy them? I cant find them anywhere in Holland or belgium, and the websites don’t ship tom ford.. (as far as I know)

I live in Paris, they have a TOM FORD counter in the Galleries Lafayette and at Printemps. I wouldn’t know about other countries though, sorry…

NARS Orgasm. When I tested it I found it needs to be built up, and I don’t have 4 hours every morning to spend putting on blush.

I just love Nars Cactus Flower, but like you Christine, I get cold feet and never buy it, even though I have seen some fair skinned ladies who pull it off wonderfully… Ahhhh!

Buy it Meagan~!! It’s AMAZING~!! You can buff it out to be a light flush on the cheek or build it up to be an intense pop of color. It really is beautiful.:)

I can only think of one, and that’s NARS Taj Mahal. Georgeour in pan and gorgeous swatched. Knowing myself I will probably get it eventually even though I’m pretty sure it won’t work that well on my NW20ish skin tone. I have Exhibit A and love it, but Taj Mahal will probably be too golden for me.
