NARS Liquid Blushes

For Summer 2017, NARS has made a liquid version of its cult-favorite powder blush! Available June 2017 at all NARS retailers, the Liquid Blushes are said to be buildable, blendable, moisturizing and long lasting.

Available in 4 shades :

This new liquid blush comes with a pump, and it's not one of those pumps that dispense too much product.

You can really control the amount of product with this pump, which is always a nice thing when it comes to ultra pigmented liquid blushes!

NARS Liquid Blush Review

The formula is very thin and watery. It feels moisturizing (but not too greasy) thanks to the Tamanu and Monoï oils it contains. It's very lightweight on the skin though, so don't be afraid to try it if your skin is oily! (it's my skin type, by the way!)

It has a light scent (similar to MAC Studio Fix Fluid) but it's not overpowering.

The colors are very pigmented, but they can be sheered down and are really easy to blend. A little bit goes a long way, I don't even use a full pump for both of my cheeks! And I like how the product doesn't mess up my foundation.

The shades Torrid and Dolce Vita left a bit of a stain on my skin too, which improves the lasting power.

I already have 3 of these shades in the original powder blush formula so I compared them for you. Luster is lighter and matte, Orgasm is similar but less shimmery, and Torrid is slightly warmer.

By the way, I like to apply them with my fingertips or a small kabuki. A round blush brush works well too, as long as the bristles are densely packed!

  1. Awesome review!! Very informative and interesting.. I like the orgasm and torrid shades, i feel like I'd have to be brave to wear the other shades tho, lol. I'd like to try this out!! I usually use my Mermaid Makeup Brushes Set for applying any make up like this. Thank you for sharing this! Looking forward to your future post!!
