Another one from my Space NK haul! That store could literally suck up all my wages. I got my first Nars item around Christmas last year and it was truly love at first use! The creamy concealer is only just running out and I have my back up purchased. It is THE best concealer ever and worth every penny. You can see the review on that here. It’s holy grail now for me!
I knew I wanted to try a Nars blush. They are always mentioned and you never seem to see a bad review on them. I had really wanted Sin but it wasn’t on the Space NK website. Everybody raves about orgasm but for me it didn’t appeal. As my beloved dandelion (and I hadn’t bought the Benefit blush palette at this point!) is running out I decided to go for a pink shade ready to replace that.
I didn’t do my research and just gambled on Mata Hari. It isn’t one I had seen before or one I’d read about but it looked like a nice pink so ended up in my basket.
As with all Nars products it does have the rubberised black packaging that will get grubby. I love that in their blushes there are full size mirrors. I’m a on the go make up girls lately and mirror’s in products are always appreciated.
Nars blushes are 4.8g and cost £22.50. For reference Benefit Dandelion is £23.50 for 7g. Nars Mati Hari is a lot more pigmented though. I’ve been so impressed with it. It’s a really pretty slightly cool toned pink. I find I need the smallest amount of this to give a soft pink glow to my cheeks. I love the natural blush effect it gives!
In these photos it has been on for 7+ hours. It still gives a natural finish to my skin. I’m in love. I think this has knocked Dandelion of it’s top spot which is a massive statement for me. I love that it can be built up for more colour if desired!
Now I just need more Nars blushes in my life! Any colour recommendations?
