NARS Kingpin is a moderately warm-toned, light-medium pink with a matte finish. It is a limited edition blush that retails for $30.00 and contains 0.16 oz.
Kingpin is a medium pink with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. The blush was richly pigmented with a soft, slightly powdery consistency, but it didn't seem too thin nor was it too dense or thick in the pan. It still darkened a bit when applied to my cheeks within a few minutes of wear, and at the end of the day, it seemed to be even darker yet. I didn't have any issues applying or blending out the blush on my cheeks. The blush stayed on well for eight and a half hours on me.
