Hey everyone! On my Updated Foundation Routine Video (English and French) I got a lot of comments asking about my blush and bronzer palette. It is indeed one of my most prized makeup possessions. It contains my favorite Nars blushes and bronzers. While working at the Cosmetic Market in Nashville, I was able get my hands on a lot of Nars blush and bronzer tester units. Because they were made to put in a big tester unit the blushes and bronzers were loose pans. I accumulated a lot of these and it became a pain to travel with them. So I searched the internet for a magnetic palette, but most of the magnetic palettes out there are for MAC pans. I finally found a "freestyle" palette on StarsMakeupHaven.com, plus it was only $14! Below, I have listed all the Nars blushes, bronzers and two powder foundations that are in the palette along with swatches of the colors. Needless to say, I am obsessed with Nars products, and their blushes and bronzers are among my favorites!
As you can most likely tell, Orgasm and Casino are my two absolute favorites. I cannot go a day without wearing Orgasm blush, it truly is, in my opinion, the most beautiful blush on earth. In addition to the powder blush (and super orgasm blush-a more pigmented version of the original with more substantial gold glitter), I also own the Orgasm Multiple, the Orgasm Illuminator, the Super Orgasm Illuminator and the Orgasm Lip Gloss. As I said, obsessed. For looks with really bold lips, especially darker lips, I love to use Nars in Sex Appeal. It is a softer pink with much less shimmer, so it gives the perfect subtle glow without looking like a lot of blush, Sin is especially pretty in the winter months because its more of a berry tone with gold shimmer, as is Amour because it is a bit deeper than orgasm. Penny Lane is the perfect cream blush for a super-natural effect. I also like to use it under another powder blush if I know I won't be able to touch up throughout the day for a long-lasting effect. Enchanted has a beautiful golden peach color with lots of shimmer so it's perfect for a night out. I often just dab a little on the tops of cheekbones for added glow. Nico is also a great very natural highlighter, perfect for subtle everyday contouring.
What are your favorite Nars blushes and bronzers?
