I’m sure you all know that blush is my thing. I just love it and I don’t know why. There’s something about them that makes them feel more substantial to me and therefore worth the investment, I don’t think I’d be able to spend £17.50 on a lipgloss for example. It just seems a bit much to me! So I knew the item I got would be a blush. 99% of people I asked said they preferred the powder blushers from NARS to the cream ones so I was all set on Mata Hari which looks gorgeous and I still really want it, but I fell in love with one of the cream blushers called Enchanted and I had to have it. It was the description ‘a soft peach with gold sparkle’ that sucked me in because it sounded so lovely and perfect for the spring & summer. Thankfully ASOS were running their 20% off for students promotion because full price this costs £20.50. Ouch!
The colour in the pan is stunning, I absolutely love it and I would say for most skin tones this would definitely be a highlight. I’m super pale so I can make this work as a blush with a bit of building up. I’ve found the best way to apply it for me is to dot a fair but of the product on to my cheeks with my fingers and then to blend it out using a brush. The result is lovely and I love the gold sparkles in it. I know sparkle isn’t for everyone & while it is quite easy to brush them off once the blush is applied I appreciate that doing that every time would be a bit of a faff.

Would I purchase another NARS cream blush? No, probably not because I absolutely adore the Illamasqua cream blushers which are cheaper and the formulation sits so much nicer on my skin. I am curious to try a NARS powder blush but I just think they’re a little pricey. With all that said I don’t regret getting Enchanted because it’s a beautiful colour, I can see me using it a lot during the summer and I think the gold sparkles are beautiful!
Have you ever tried any NARS products? Would you recommend their powder blushers?
