NARS Illicit Powder Blush ($30.00 for 0.16 oz.) is a light-medium, peachy-brown with moderate, warm undertones paired with a satin finish. It had very fine shimmer throughout that looked quite luminous once applied and buffed onto my skin, so it was lightly glowing but not overly shimmery. The texture was soft, a smidgen powdery but very blendable and easy to work with. It had nearly opaque coverage in a single layer that stayed on well for eight hours before fading slightly.
