Just launched, NARS Contour Blush ($42.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a new formula available in three shades, with each shade actually being a duo of colors. One color is designed to highlight (left side), and the other to contour (right side). I’ll have reviews for you soon, so please hold your questions until I’ve posted my thoughts 🙂 Thank you!

I was looking forward to these, but for now I’ll just stick to NARS Zen blush, which is more neutral than any of these appear. Of course I plan to try these in-store, but I won’t get my hopes up.

In the swatches, these appear much lighter than I expected and I’m loving the fact they do not seem to pull orange!!! I like them all, but think olympia and paloma would work best for me.

I’m really excited to see what shade will work best for fair skin! I’m not liking the contour shade on Olympia, I’m thinking Paloma will be the best for me.. Yay! Excited for the review!

Given that I’m so fair, Olympia actually looks like it’d make a nice neutral blush on me. It looks like it has quite a bit of pink it. 🙂

Olympia doesn’t look like much of anything in the pan, but after seeing it swatched, I’m thinking it just might be right for pale skin…

I like the idea but the contour cookouts all look so dark for a pale girl like me. Can’t wait to read your review and see pics of how it looks when applied :-).

I think I need Olympia! Because I’m so pale I have the worst time finding a contour shade that either isn’t too muddy or makes me look too corpse-y.

I was seriously just looking for a matte highlighting powder for contouring on Saturday. I love the concept of this. Will hold out for your review, Christine. AWESOME!

Just ordered Paloma after seeing it on Karen on MBB. I hope to see it on you too, Christine, since I am between yo and Karen in skin tones :).

Olympia and Paloma look like they might work for me as contours (because they’re not so dark or orange but more “natural shadow” looking) and the highlight shades look good too but, to be honest, contouring is such a now and then sort of thing for me and I’ve got more than enough products (including Omega eye shadow, which is wonderful) that I really don’t need any more. Not that this ever stopped me once I’ve fallen in love with something….

Olympia looks light enough, but given the undertone, I have concerns that it would still pull a tad too warm for us NW10/15 types. Be interested to see any of these would work well for an NW20/25 skintone, though. It might work for my sister’s wedding makeup. 🙂

I’m looking forward to hearing your thoughts on these! I’m obsessed with contouring, and I find this convenient packaging!! <3

Was really looking forward to Olympia. I like the way it looks but not what I had in mind when I thought of contour. I know they did say in the promo release that the shade is rose but this could be used as blush on me. I don’t really see it as contour. Was hoping for something more… neutral. 🙁

My money’s going to Paloma but I may have to try Olympia too just to see how light it looks on me. Thanks for the sneak peek! 🙂
