Nars Blush in Deep Throat

Nars blushes are a weakness for me! I got this particular one in a giftset and it’s a very flattering shade.

Nars Deep Throat is light peachy pink powder blush with gold shimmer. Deep Throat and Orgasm come from the same “peachy pink with gold” family but Deep Throat is a lot lighter. It’s more pink whereas Orgasm is more peachy. This also has less sheen and shimmer than Orgasm. If you ever found Orgasm to be a bit too shimmery, you might prefer this one. The warm pink tone with gold shimmer makes this very suitable for warm skintones.

It’s sheer in one swipe but very easily to build up. I prefer the sheer ones anyway since they’re easier to work with and it looks more natural.

Despite being a powder blush it doesn’t feel too powdery or chalky. It picks up a lot of powder on the brush but transforms to a very even smooth texture on the skin. It’s also very easy to blend it out. Even after piling 2-3 layers it still maintains a smooth sheen and doesn’t look heavy.

This is pretty long lasting. Even when applied sheer, it doesn’t budge or fade for 7-8 hours. The shimmer slowly disappears along with the colour but it doesn’t highlight any dry patches. I can’t say for sure about very large pores but this doesn’t settle into pores either.

It’s a nice shimmer blush if you want to splurge on Nars. Mac’s Sheertone Shimmers are also a nice alternative formula wise. You won’t be hitting pan on 4.8g anytime soon, so it will last for a long time. Unfortunately, you don’t get Nars directly in India. Blushes cost around $30.

The only thing I don’t like is the packaging. While it looks very sleek, the matte rubber finish attracts a lot of dust and fingerprints. My older Nars blushes are a complete mess.

    It looks lovely, I really do like the color. I’m a little vary of shimmer in blush though, I prefer using a seperate highlighter as it affords more control (although it does add a product + step). I have the same problem with the packaging of my Sleek products, I think they’re very similar to Nars?

      I think the only one without shimmer I’ve tried is Douceur, muted pinky-brown kind of shade. Sleek is a lot better although it is kind of matte.
