NARS Born to Be Alive is a moderately warm-toned, medium coral with a luminous finish. It is a limited edition blush that retails for $30.00 and contains 0.16 oz.
Born to Be Alive is a light-medium coral with balanced pink and orange undertones paired with a luminous sheen. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation that applied evenly to bare skin and diffused beautifully along the edges for a moderate glow that never emphasized my skin's natural texture. The consistency was dense without being stiff, so it picked up well with a moderately dense brush and spread out easily. It wore well for nine hours on me before fading a bit.
