Make Up: NARS Penny Lane Cream Blush.

I don't think I need to mention that I am a complete blusher addict again, I'm sure everyone already knows, but for the longest time I was only attracted to blushes that looked pretty in the pan. Anything neutral and simple was ignored in favour of super bright or pretty marbleized baked blushers purely because they look prettier. I can safely say that I was totally wrong in doing that and I am so happy that I have started to acknowledge that simple and neutral colours can be completely gorgeous too. The latest addition to my blush collection is Penny Lane from NARS and I am already completely head over heels in love with the colour.

NARS cream blushers aren't my favourite formulation, there's just no beating Illamasqua's cream blushers for me although it's unfair of me to compare them because they are two totally different products. Illamasqua cream blushers stay dewy on the skin whereas NARS cream blushers dry to more of a powder finish which is great if you're skin is on the oilier side. They never look powdery or too much on the skin and I find they wear really nicely throughout the day, I never find myself needing to reapply.

 
Penny Lane is described as a nude pink shade and I would say that's pretty accurate. There is no shimmer or glitter and although I'm a huge fan of shimmery cheek products it's nice to have options! It's one of those shades that doesn't look hugely special in the pan but once it's on your cheeks it manages to give you that fresh, wide awake and natural flush which is so lovely and goes with any make up look you could possibly think of. If you have been thinking about investing in this shade, and at £21 it is an investment purchase, I would say that it is well worth every single penny and I highly recommend it. I can already tell that this will be my blusher of choice when I decide to go for a bright lip this spring and summer and I'm so excited to wear it more!

Have you ever tried any blushers from NARS? If so which are your favourites? And if not, please let me know what your current favourite blusher is, I'd love to know!

  3. I'm not a fan of cream blushes (looks like they'd be sticky! haha), but that looks too pretty! I only have one Nars blush - Luster which is a golden peachy color, it's really pretty :)

  6. I have a Revon blush I picked up from the drug store because it was cheap..But its not amazing. I havent found a blush I like yet, as I find most too pigmented. This looks good though..I might try it and see if I can stop hunting for one I like.

  12. I am completely obsessed with blushers at the mo and even though I have NARS Laguna bronzer, I don't actually own any of their blushers - and I feel I should considering how much I like blushers and how much I like Nars. Well, well, well…
    Also, such a lovely shade, it complements your complexion so well! :)

  15. Such a girly, pretty color!! I've heard so much about this cream blush and keep wanting to try it out but I haven't purchased it yet b/c my skin just does not seem to agree with NARS cream products. The multiples and skin luminizers break my skin out like crazy :(

    Looks amazing with your complexion though!
