MORE NARS CRAZE~~~

Hey all ;

Like I said before, I was sucked in to the trend of NARS blushes.. which is still on going...

So I went and got my self 3 other blushes.. LOL.. I got them off ebay which is SOOO much cheaper than buying it from department stores.. AUD$60 for a blush will make me broke.. and plus all these other holiday collections coming out.. so be sure to have some money left for that.. don't want to miss out. so here's the photos.. TADAAAAA
So I got my self, Top is Laguna bronzer (left to right) Zen, Gilda, Deep throat.

OK.. I just reckon why can't their marketing group find some other nice/sensible names for the blush?? I mean sup with orgasm and deep throat?? doesn't that sound a bit awkard?? Imagine a 15 yr old girl goes to counter and buys NARS blushes.. it's just ... no comment..
Any ways, on to the blushes.

Zen. This is like a neutral beige, peachy browny colour,with matte finish. looks dead boring in the pot right?? but you're WRONG!!! this is the thing about nars blushes, it looks different once it's on your face. I applied lightly with an angled brush and it looks nude peachy/brown which gives a hint of colour makes you look so healthy.. great colour for summer. I tried to use it for contour, I think the colour may look dirty because it's a bit more red toned than laguna so I don't recommend using it as a contour colour.

Gilda. LOOK at that COLOUR!! how can you not love it?? It's a pinky coral colour. matte finish no shimmers. I love it. If you have not much eye make up, may be just some browns or warm toned eye shadow.. This is great.. makes you look all young again. gives you this elegant kind of look instead of the FULL on hit of pink which tend to be more cute than mature and elegant. If you get what I mean.
Deep throat. (sigh the name~~~) any ways, this is a more pinky/peachy colour with shimmer. I don't know if you can see it, I didn't use flash to take these photos I used natural lighting, because I thought it's pretty much the real colour. The flash tend to alter the colour a bit. I heard that orgasm is a beautiful colour too, but might be a bit too pale and too much shimmer. I swatched it when I went to check it out at the department counter, I didn't like it. didn't show up much just a bunch of glitters.. T___T But this one, I like... not too pink not too peachy. just right.

So a photo with flash.. you can see the glitters.. LOL

So on to the swatches.. I use a Mac 275 brush I think, can't remember exactly. I swiped it 3 times, So the colours are really intense.... If you look closely, Laguna is more brown were as zen is more red undertoned.. and a bit more peachy.. no shimmer. Gilda is definately really peachy/coral and deepthraot is just a pretty natural pink...



So what you guys think? I might go and collect more now.. I had my eyes on Amour, but they didn't have it.. I want Dolce Vita!!!.. sigh I want the Dolce Vita lipstick too... so hard to find, always out of stock...

yea i agree sexual names can be misleading to younger customers... >_< sometimes i'd rather have numbered colours like "#306", rather than some cheeky names, haha...

i've been looking at reviews of nars blushes, so cool that u did one of your own! i was so thinking of getting zen for contouring but now i'm not too sure!

I was always skeptical from buying from ebay. well makeup that is. but seeing this I'm thinking It would be crazy buying it in store for some redick prices
