About this deal

I feel like prestige brands tend to give more sheer formulas that are a bit softer and buildable so im not mad at the sheerness but im curious to find out of any of the other shades with show up on my complexion! There’s a bit too much brown in that shade for my skin tone but I’m sure it would look pretty on others. From within their own brand, I prefer Nars’ mattes over their satins but I like satins more than the shimmers.

Nars is a high end makeup brand so their products don't come cheap but this is going to be worth every penny you decide to spend on it. A diverse range of iconic shades in matte, satin, and shimmering finishes offer the ability to create endless looks, including the award-winning bestseller, Orgasm. So, I can apply these quickly and smoothly enough without feeling the need to swap to a different brush for each different shade.TALC • OCTYLDODECYL STEARATE • OCTYLDODECYL STEAROYL STEARATE • ZINC STEARATE • TIN OXIDE • CAPRYLYL GLYCOL • PHENOXYETHANOL • [+/- (MAY CONTAIN/PEUT CONTENIR): IRON OXIDES (CI 77491) • IRON OXIDES (CI 77492) • IRON OXIDES (CI 77499) • MANGANESE VIOLET (CI 77742) • MICA • RED 28 LAKE (CI 45410) • RED 30 LAKE (CI 73360) • RED 33 LAKE (CI 17200) • RED 34 LAKE (CI 15880) • RED 7 LAKE (CI 15850) • TITANIUM DIOXIDE (CI 77891) • YELLOW 5 LAKE (CI 19140)] • . It is pigmented to the max, as many NARS blushes are, but this one is even more so than the average NARS blush. Showdown is more apparent on the skin in person, but I do like to mix it (mainly on the apples) with Hit it Off (mainly towards the back) to get a little more depth from that deep pink-coral with a brighter coral pop towards the front. skin when primed I find this wears for around 8 hours before a little fading occurs where as normal NARS blushes seem to fair for around 6 hours so I think that goes to show just how intense this shade is! I wanted to try it again for nostalgia reasons as I wholeheartedly regret that I didn’t get more use out of this palette.

The biggest selling point for me was getting my hands on Taj Mahal, one of the beauty industry’s most famous orange blushes, and Exhibit A which I completely forgot I already owned. Sam Fine, known as the master makeup artist for women of color, pointed to NARS Taj Mahal blush for any women of color in his blog. So, my favorite with this particular formula is the Chikuhodo FO-2 because it fits well with the size dimensions of the pans and picks up a decent amount of product that allows me to still control in building up the color. When I purchased the Nars Basic Instincts Cheek Quad II at the end of July 2021 and two single blushes on Black Friday, it was because I wanted to get a good sense of what Nars blushes could do.The blushes in this palette are gel-powder, which I was curious to try from Nars, with a satin-luminous finish.

I could have built up High Demand, Showdown, and Just Lust even more, but I liked their levels in the photo. Despite High Demand looking to be the same depth as the very pigmented Just Lust, it’s not as intense of a blush color.Pure pigments suspended in an innovative liquid binding system create rich, high-impact color in just one stroke.

it looks even more beautiful on darker skin anything nc37+ because it really compliments those skin tones. Anyway, Off the Page is probably the closest, but it seems lighter – not quite as orange, orange, I’d say. This blush is more suited for warmer, darker and honey toned skins, I wouldn’t imagine it would suit paler as it would look more orange than a burnt amber colour.

Gives such a naturally rosey pink colour and is so soft and easy to use, great colour payoff, I suggest being very light handed while using this one. Angelika: This looks super scary in the pan but if you apply the tiniest amount you can get the most gorgeous flushed look to your cheeks. I found it really difficult to get the amount I needed, so keep a buffing brush on standby for quick fixes.
