NARS Penthouse is a slightly cool-toned, dark berry with a matte finish. It is a limited edition blush that retails for $30.00 and contains 0.16 oz.
Penthouse is a rich, medium-dark plum with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. There was a touch of dustiness to the texture, but it was surprisingly blendable for such a deep, pigmented shade. I used a fan brush to apply it to my cheeks, and the color diffused beautifully while maintaining the overall hue and intensity that I saw in the pan. It lasted well for nine hours on me before fading slightly.
