NARS Manava is a moderately warm-toned, medium pink with a satin finish. It is a limited edition blush that retails for $30.00 and contains 0.16 oz.
Manava is a medium pink with moderate, warm undertones and fine, gold pearl. It had opaque color payoff that applied evenly to bare skin and blended out with ease. The texture was soft, thin, and a little dusty, but it wasn't troublesome to apply--some of NARS' blushes can run a bit too thin that they get difficult to blend out over bare skin but that wasn't the case here. It had more of a satin-matte finish once blended out, and in a way, that made it more versatile as a little tap of the highlighter in the palette added plenty o' shine without layering too heavily on top (and creating texture). This shade wore well for seven and a half hours on me before I noticed any fading.
