NARS Luster Liquid Blush ($30.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is a medium orange with warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. I expected a lot more shimmer, since the powder version of this shade has it. It had a thin, spreadable consistency that was a little runny but ended up being a lot easier to blend out and apply to the skin than I expected. It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation that lasted for eight and a half hours on me.
The new formula is supposed to "effortlessly glide on[to] skin for a lasting glow" where "one pump delivers the perfect amount of natural-looking color." It's supposed to have "buildable" coverage that's "blendable" and "lasting." It has a thin, almost watery consistency that spread easily, blended out well, and looked natural in finish on the skin with semi-sheer to medium, buildable coverage. One pump seemed like twice as much product as necessary in my experience, though. I liked using fingertips or a stippling brush for applying the product to cheeks but would dispense on the back of my hand or a metal palette first. It dried down quickly but did not feel immovable, so a little buffing along the edges was still doable. The formula wore between eight to nine hours on me, depending on the shade.
