When NARS launched their Dual-Intensity Blushes – makeup community went crazy over them. Although it took me some time to give in to the hype but I’m so glad I did! These blushes are unique in every way! And the colour combinations are absolutely stunning.
NARS Dual-Intensity Blush ($45.00) – Purely pigmented color with seamless customizable coverage. New Dual-Intensity Blush defies genre with a silky, wet/dry formula of unprecedented artistry. Apply dry for a healthy glow and wet for translucent, second-skin finish. NARS exclusive Translucent Prismatic Technology features pearls and pigments perfectly suspended in transparent soft base to allow for multi-dimensional effects with a uniquely weightless, luxurious texture.
NARS Dual-Intensity Blush is a product duo, that features either a highlighter and a blush, or two blushes or a bronzer and a blush. It is currently available in 8 shades: Adoration (sparkling pale pink/shimmering hot pink), Craving (opalescent pink highlight/luminous bronze), Fervor (shimmering soft pink/sparkling deep coppery rose), Frenzy (sparkling soft pink-gold highlighter/shimmering bright tangerine orange), Jubilation (sparkling yellow gold highlighter/shimmering soft nude-peach), Liberation (light shimmering pink/caramel rose), Panic (shimmering vivid fuchsia/shimmering orange-pink) and Sexual Content (sandy peach/soft raspberry). All blushes come in a square compact with a full-sized mirror and in the amount of 0.21 oz and 6 g.
NARS Dual-Intensity Blush in Adoration is officially described as a ‘sparkling pale pink and a shimmering hot pink‘ and is actually a combination of a highlighter and a blush in one compact. The one on the left is a highlighter of a cool-toned baby pink shade with huge amount of multicoloured shimmer that turns into a soft metallic sheen on the skin. The blush on the right side is a bright warm-toned cranberry shade intensely packed with finely milled white and silver shimmer that add a visible luminosity to the finish once on the skin.
The formula of the Dual-Intensity Blushes is absolutely unique. These blushes are no where near powdery and have a gel-type of feel when you swatch these. The product seems quite stiff but the brush picks it up very well. The texture of both a blush and a highlighter allows you to steadily build up the intensity to any desired level from a very sheer, barely there coverage up to completely opaque flush on your cheeks or the most intense highlight ever. Both products can be used wet and dry that influences the outcome greatly, making the finish more intense and metallic. Both products are blendable and easy to work with and last on my skin for as long as I have my makeup on.
Honestly, I didn’t expect to be that impressed with the product as I turned out to be. I ended up loving both a highlighter and a blush and each time I use it I get amused at the unique formula NARS has created. This makes me eager to try other shades as well and I’m sure I’ll love them as much as NARS is very consistent with the quality of their products.
