Loves Me Not

NARS Loves Me Not Powder Blush ($30.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a soft, light-medium pink with warm undertones and a soft, lilac pearl sheen. It looked more interesting as I buffed and blended out the powder on my cheeks, as it seemed to have a cooler, more noticeable sheen than I expected based on initial swatches. The pigmentation was good and covered my skin evenly. The texture was soft, slightly firm but not dry or difficult to blend out on my skin. It wore well for eight hours on me before I noticed signs of fading.

Formula Overview

$30.00/0.16 oz. - $187.50 Per Ounce

From NARS’ website, their blush formula is described as “beautifully pigmented” and “soft [and] blendable.” NARS' blushes, since they've been released in such a massive range of shades over the years, can vary from shade to shade to some degree. Most shades are pigmented with firmer, slightly stiffer consistencies that can also run on the thinner side, which allows greater control when picking up product but some of the more matte shades could be a bit more blendable or easier to work with.

Some of the more newly-released shades have softer, more yielding textures that are a bit creamier and are easier to blend out, though most of NARS' blushes are fairly blendable. The wear typically ranges from eight to nine hours with a few shades falling above or below this range.

Applied to the cheeks, this one is surprisingly more bright and pigmented than I had expected! It’s actually very pretty and feels like Spring!

This looks like a very versatile blush and the shade looks very natural for my complexion. I already have several dupes and at much cheaper price points as I picked a couple up from YesStyle and from my Japan contact so I am passing on this. I have relaxed my NARs no buy but happy to pass on this.

I hauled quite a few pieces of this collection over the weekend at my local NARS boutique and I’m wearing this blush today. It has an element of brightness in the color that lights up my complexion even though it’s soft and romantic, and the finish has a soft understated sheen. I’m so in love I want to immediately buy a backup!! ♡ (For reference I wear NARS Finland / Montblanc for foundation.)

My blush just arrived and I’m obsessed. This pink color with subtle lilac understone and subtle glow are perfect!
