Swatch: Nars Angelika Blush

I seem to have switched my love from peach to pink, somehow I find it to be very flattering nowadays! About two weeks ago, when I got Benefit Sugarbomb, I also picked up this Nars Angelika ($.28.00) which is a cotton candy pink with gold and silver sparkle. It's blue based as you can tell, and the most noticeable sparkles are silver. The texture is very silky and has great pigmentation combining matte and shimmer, though the shimmer fades between application and/or after application, so if you're not into it you don't really have to worry about it. And if you blend it enough, you can get a semi matte finish.

I know this colour may be quite intimidating at first, but it's actually very lovely and wearable. Plus it works well on most skin tones due to it's blue undertone and high pigmentation. I realized that on my skin it can look a bit darker than what it looks like on the pan, so I use a light hand on my cheeks, nonetheless it isn't heavy in any way so it can't be over done. Overall I think it's very beautiful, it blends easily and lasts for at least 8 hours.

  11. That definitely looks a lot nicer on than I expected - like you say the colour is a bit intimidating. I don't have any NARS products yet, but the one at the top of my NARS wishlist is Deep Throat! x
