As I mentioned in my mid-December beauty haul, I had a coupon for Sephora and I took full advantage of it to splurge on my first NARS blush. 

What they SayThe ultimate authority in blush, NARS offers the industry's most iconic shades for cheeks. Natural, healthy-looking color that immediately enlivens the complexion. A light application of even the highest-intensity hues delivers a natural-looking flush.

What I expected: I had seen swatches of this particular blush and of course, heard a lot about NARS blushes — Orgasm, in particular — so I was hoping for a long-lasting, shimmery blush that required very little product to go a long way.

What I say: For the past few weeks, this has been the only blush I had been reaching for. NARS describes Luster as a "sheer golden apricot" and I'd agree. As a NC25/NC30, this blush is the perfect shade for that glowy, apricot-coloured, bronze flush. At first I was a little bit afraid of the shimmers but once you apply it, it's barely visible but it does catch the light ever so slightly.

The staying power of this blush is good; I don't find it to be any more long-lasting compared to my MAC blush but they both definitely last me a full 8-10 hour day.

The only downside to this blush which is that the packaging gets dirty very quickly and it's pretty much impossible to clean afterwards. Other than that, I don't have anything negative to say about it! NARS blushes are a bit pricey but if you catch a deal, take full advantage of it because this blush is worth every penny I saved up for it.
