NARS “Cactus Flower” Cream Blush
This was the first NARS product I ever bought. It’s a lovely watermelon color with a red undertone and gold shimmers. I honestly don’t use it as often as my other blushes because I have found that I prefer matte finishes. It’s a shame because this is gorgeous. I’ve been trying to reach for it more often.
The glitter is very fine, the blush blends well and doesn’t feel gritty at all! It lasts a long time on my cheeks, specially since it’s a strong red color. It’s definitely not a color for everyone tastes because of the shimmer and the red tones, but the formula is great. I also use it on the lips sometimes (I use any cream blush on my lips).
Overall, I give this an A. Great blendability and no glitter fallout on the rest of your face. I know NARS powder blushes have a really great reputation but I haven’t tried any yet. I bought this years ago on a whim and I thought it was a powder blush until I opened it! I got some of the E.l.f. Studio Blushes and they’re supposed to be dupes for NARS so I can’t wait to use those! Here’s a swatch:
Happy Friday and have a great weekend!
