You all know how I love me some blush (it's what inspired my blog name after all). Beauty.com recently had a Friends & Family sale with 20% off your entire purchase. Since they sell NARS, I decided to take advantage and purchase another NARS blush. NARS makes incredible blushes. They are are extremely pigmented, silky in texture, and long lasting. I already have Deep Throat and Taj Mahal, so I decided I wanted Taos. Taos is a desert rose with fine gold shimmer. It has been described as the brown girl's Orgasm blush (which can tend to be too light for deeper skin tones). I only needed a light tap into the pan to get enough color and it showed up as a beautiful rose color with a golden glow on me. I used my MAC 129 blush brush. I think this would be great on lighter skin tones as well, if used with a light hand. It blended like a dream without much effort.

You can kind of see the subtle gold shimmer
NARS blushes retail for $26 which may seem pricey, but you will have it forever. Have you tried any blush from NARS?
