NARS Blush comparison

I had an opportunity to try the Sex Fantasy Blush and while so pretty in the pan, it barely shows up on my skin. Like all NARS blushes, it has great pigmentation, but I’d probably have done better with New Attitude Blush.  I did a comparison of Angelika, Sex Fantasy and Gaiety and you can definitely see the more cool, lavender tone (no shimmer) to Sex Fantasy.

I also tried the Villa Lante Satin Lip Pencil, which in person is a bright pink bubblegum shade. It’s creamy and moisturizing, with a true pink color on the lips. It’s a very pretty, wearable shade for spring and summer. If you’re looking for a pink-nude shade, I think Descanso would be a great pick.

You can find NARS Final Cut Collection exclusively at Nordstrom and in NARS Boutiques. Blushes in the Final Cut Collection run $30, Satin Lip Pencils $25 and the Illuminator $30. Do you love a pretty pink? Let me know in the comments!
