My (rather large) collection of blushes have taken a back seat since I got the new and limited edition NARS Dual Intensity Blush in Sexual Content. It’s one of those pieces of makeup that’s just spot on in terms of shade, texture and ease of use.
The two shades in the compact are a rosy beige called Soft Raspberry and a dulled apricot/peach called Sandy Peach. The combination of the two on the cheeks brightens and lifts the whole face and the enhancing effect is definitely helped by the slightly sheeny finish to the texture.
Being a Dual Intensity product it can be used wet or dry. I prefer to use it dry for speed and I also prefer a subtle ‘daytime’ look. However, when used wet the shade takes on an extra luminous quality which is very pretty.
Also part of the NARS Summer 2016 collection is a range of lip products called Lip Cover which come in 4 shades. I’ve got Get Dirty which is brown with brick and rose undertones. These are liquid lipsticks with a big overdose of pigment and the finish is a cross between a matt and sheen. I find Get Dirty to be one of those shades that’s on the underwhelming side if you’re just looking at your lips in isolation. However, when you see your whole face with it on it makes complete sense and helps pull your makeup look together.
The lovely final touch to this summer collection is that the outer boxes feature illustrations by the mega talented artist, Konstantin Kakanias.
Dual Intensity Blush in Sexual Context is £30 and available HERE.
Lip Cover in Get Dirty is £21 and available HERE.
