NARS Taj Mahal is the newest addition to my blush collection. It is described by NARS as being burnt orange with shimmer. I like to describe it as GORGEOUS! As I was so impressed with my other NARS blush (Deep Throat), I purchased this without having actually seen it in person. I had heard that it was a "brown girl's staple", and after getting it home and seeing it in person, I can see why. I looks very scary in the pan, but as with all of NARS blushes, it is highly pigmented, meaning a little goes a long way. You barely have to tap your brush in the pan to get the color. You have to be very careful not to over do it since it is so highly pigmented. It shows up on me as a nice golden peach with a beautiful glow (I am NC42 in MAC foundation for reference).

NARS blushes retail for $26, a little on the pricey side but worth every penny as you will have this forever. I got free shipping since the purchase was over $25 and a free mini lip gloss duo in Striptease and Dolce Vita by using the promo code TEMPTALIA.
