NARS Blush Swatches!

Clockwise starting at top left: Duo: Love Joy and Albatross, Taos, Exhibit A, Taj Mahal

Before I became addicted to lipstick, blush was my favorite make up item. I never do my make up with out blush and I love how it can brighten up your whole face. NARS is one of my favorite brands of blush. They have gorgeous bright pigmented colors that show up beautifully on darker skin tones. The NARS blushes I own are Exhibit A, Taj Mahal, Taos, and the Lovejoy and Albatross Duo. I highly recommend these blushes, they may cost a little more ($26 each) but they last forever. I know you aren't suppose to keep makeup this long lol but I have some of these for years and there is just a little dent in them. The following swatches are very heavy, these do not look scary at all when applied lightly to the face.

Exhibit A: matte red
Taj Mahal: bright orange with golden shimmer
Taos: rose with shimmer 
Love Joy: pinkish brown with shimmer
 Albatross: golden white. This is a great highlight for darker skin tones, I wear it pretty much every time I wear makeup. It does not look white on the skin at all, it gives a soft golden glow.I like to use it above my cheek bones.

Of the five Taj Mahal, Lovejoy, and Albatross are my favorites! If you have brown skin, you need Taj Mahal!

Left to Right: Exhibit A, Taj Mahal, Taos, Lovejoy, Albaross

What are your favorite NARS blushes or blushes of other brands?!

Aww I have some of the same ones, and your right, every brown girl need Taj Mahal in their life! But I do have a question. Does Lovejoy show up well on your skin? Im interested in getting it but im not sure how it will look. I think we have the same skin tone (NW43 or NC50)!

I bought Orgasm/Super Orgasm back in 2009 w/o swatching, mistake! Everyone says Orgasm is like a universal color, it works on everyone. Well, it didn't work on me, super light, & I never gone back to NARS blushes. Only after starting to blog, I kinda started to have a crush on Exhibit A/Taj Mahal. They are my list, but way at very bottom. & when I swatched Albaross, it was just like powder to me. I need to work on my "light hand"...

Taj Mahal is one of my favorites! I agree- if you have dark skin this looks stunning on you! You've gotta try Gina. It's one of my favorites too! Great blushes, amazing swatches!
