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!
