You know you would be on cloud nine when the moment you unwrap your special package received from a makeup-forward brand such as NARS. Well, it did for us that day. We were not only surprised by one, but two amazing looking blushes. Thanks NARS Malaysia for the love *_^
We are talking about NARS latest addition to their Dual-Intensity range (NARS introduced Dual-Intensity Eyeshadows some time back, here for more). This time around, it is NARS Dual-Intensity Blush. With edgy and forward-looking approach in mind, dual-intensity means that you can apply the products both dry and wet, based on your preference or mood for the day, or more precisely, how you would like the finishing to be. Isn't that cool? The two shades that we have are Fervor and Craving.
Housed in a black soft rubbery texture-like square casing, it snaps shut effortlessly with a magnetic closing and has a full size mirror inside, which is awesome. Each dual-intensity comes in two shades that are separated by a divider, so that the colours won't get mixed together. A plus point, we feel. One of the best things we love about these babies are the way they are designed. We super love the detailed grid and structured concept to the powders! Ultra chic and modern, don't you agree?
Fervor consists of a shimmery soft pink and a sparkling deep copper. It is quite a different kind of pink shade and deep copper that we have seen, almost quite surreal in a beautiful way. The shades may look surprising in the pan, but once applied, they give your skin a healthy shimmery glow, in a natural way. Note that product is very pigmented, so a little goes a long way. When used wet (either with a wet brush or spray some facial mist onto the product, then pick up with the brush), the shades immediately intensify into a more radiant and rich colours. NARS have actually come up with a specific Wet/Dry Brush #23 for this purpose for one to achieve that flawless flush of colour look on the cheeks.
Craving comes in two shades that one of them can be used as a highlighter. It is a sparkling seashell pink and shimmery beachy bronze, perfect for the coming summer. These are super gorgeous colours and they glide on effortlessly and make you glow in a natural way that catches light at the right places of your face.
We have put together a beauty board that we feel is absolutely achievable with these two blushes we have here. Hope you will love it (visuals via pinterest). NARS Dual-Intensity Blushes come in 6 shades duo combo and retailed for MYR191 (6g).
Always a super fun time experimenting with NARS products, what more when you can mix and match the shades to create shades of your own that best bring out the glam in you! We sure are having fun and loving these square babies *_^
