Fetishized

NARS Fetishized Powder Blush ($30.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a vibrant, medium-dark pinky coral with warm, orange undertones and a pearly sheen. The finish was particularly lovely on this blush, as it appeared luminous and glowy without being visibly sparkly or so metallic that it emphasized my skin’s texture.

It had rich, opaque color payoff in a single layer, and it was the type of pigmentation level where a little went a long way so I recommend using a lighter hand to start and build up coverage as desired. The texture was soft, smooth, and blendable without being powdery or dusty in the pan. It was easy to apply and lasted for eight and a half hours.

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.

Both blushes in this collection look amazing! Fingers crossed that they’re still available when Sephora has their sale, I’d definitely pick one (not sure which one yet).

Out of ALL of today’s orange/coral blush beauties; this is my favorite! Yes, I would absolutely buy this one! It seems like a more “all seasons” type for this shade family. Equally wearable in January as well as July.

I didn’t think I would like this, but I really do and now I have to go check it out! I’m happy it reviewed well too.

Please use our “Compare Any Two” tool, which is located on this page (and all reviews!) or available through Swatches > Compare Any Two. This allows you to pull up any two swatches so you can compare exactly when you want instead having to wait for my slowness to reply to you! 🙂

I caved and ordered it. Surprisingly, I don’t have any of the dupes. I looked through my blushes, but I don’t think I have a shade quite like this. The cute LE packaging with the gold lips doesn’t hurt.

It’s so weird, because there are some items up on Sephora, some on Ulta, but I don’t see the whole collection available.
I remember with one of the more recent collaborations (can these be called that? I don’t even know), I forget the name of it, Sephora never got one of the skin tint colors and one of the multiple sticks. I never understood why.

But thanks for replying!

I went to the Nars in Nordstom yesterday and the sales associate said Fetishized blush is a Nars boutique exclusive. They had the cheek palette but I have similar colors already so I passed. I’m only interested in that blush from this collection.
