Sin

If you read beauty blogs or watch beauty videos you'll know that their blushes are the products NARS are most well known for with shades like Orgasm and Deep Throat being among the most popular. Those shades never really interested me as any time I swatched them at the NARS counter I found they were too shimmery for me.

I adore my MAC Well Dressed blush and I can't imagine not having it now, but I felt like there was room in my collection for a deeper shade to wear with darker lips for the Winter months.

I always loved how Sin looked whenever I saw it used in photos and tutorials and went to check it out in person. I loved the deep plum/golden colour and thought it would be perfect for Autumn/Winter.

Lips: NUXE Reve de Miel lip balm


I must admit having used only very subtle blushes in the past I did find this difficult to use at first due to it's high level of pigmentation. You need only a tiny amount of this to get a good amount of colour on your cheeks, I would recommend being very light handed with your blush brush, otherwise you might end up looking like a clown.

Once I got the hang of it I loved how it looked on my cheeks as it's completely different to my other blushes. As you can see above it actually looks quite subtle, but still brings life to your face.

There are two downsides to this blush, one is the price at €29, I would consider them very expensive, however, because you only need the tiniest amount, I can imagine they will last a long time. The other downside is the packaging which I already knew about from reading lots of other reviews, it gets dirty very quickly and everything sticks to it. If you can get over that, the packaging is actually really nice.

You can find NARS products on their website or on ASOS for the slightly less expensive price of €27.64 with free shipping.

    1. I definitely recommend trying it out at your nearest NARS counter, there's nothing like seeing a product in "real life" to know if you'll like it!
