Nars Blush in Orgasm

29 Oct

Nars Blush in Orgasm is legendary for a reason! Year after year, it has been an Allure Best of Beauty Winner, InStyle’s Best Beauty Buys, and a Beauty Editor favorite. It’s no surprise that you’ll rarely come across a makeup artist’s kit that doesn’t include this! Why? This universally flattering peachy pink shade, with its subtle golden sheen, brightens the face instantly. Your left with a healthy flush that look freshly sunkissed, thanks to this sheer yet buildable powder blush. And the color is built like the Energizer Bunny. It just goes and goes and goes, resisting fading for hours on end.

To use, lightly run a fan brush or skunk brush over the blush, since Nars blushes are so highly pigmented. Then sweep it over the center of the cheekbones  and softly blend it out. You can also dust some into the eyelid crease, temples, hairline, jawline, and bridge of the nose. One swipe yields a soft wash of color. Two or more swipes builds the intensity. SInce there is a good dose of shimmer here, for daytime you may want to buff it out with a sponge to take it down a few notches.

This iconic Nars blush can add elegant dimension, definition, and the warmest glow to your skin! And because you need so little, thanks to the intense pigmentation, one of blush will last you years. If you don’t already own this, try it for the perfect glow!

P.S.  Not to be confused with Nars Super Orgasm Blush. Way too glittery in my opinion.

Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Rose

6 Sep

If you like a glowy cheek, Bobbi Brown’s Shimmer Brick in Rose delivers! If you need to revive dull skin, Bobbi Brown’s Shimmer Brick in Rose delivers!

With just the right amount of pearly color and sheen to light up the high points of the face, this smooth brush-on powder doubles as a great highlighter and/or a great blush. And unlike most highlighters out there, it somehow doesn’t emphasize pores. The result is subtle, shimmery, healthy, natural looking skin. And the color is perfection! Rose is truly rosy and works on most skin tones for a healthy flush and a luminous glow, all in one package!

As a highlighter:

Swirl your brush over all the 5 colors in the palette to mix them together, and run it over the top of your cheeks, temples, nose, chin, and even lids.

As a blush:

Swirl your brush over all the 5 colors and apply them to the apples of your cheeks. The results? Like Nars Orgasm, but more subtle.

Now, the Shimmer Brick may seem pricey but you do get a lot for your money. This brick will last you years – very little truly goes a very long way!

Tip:

You can even apply it to the center of your bottom lip before using gloss, for a fuller Jolie pout.
