nars-fall-2014-collection

Purchased by me

 

NARS Unlawful blush ($30) is part of the NARS Fall Night Caller 2014 collection. The 10-piece NARS Night Caller Fall 2014 collection consists of  both limited edition and permanent collection pieces and hit Sephora stores and NARS counter on August 1. Yes, I know I am late in reporting. please forgive me–Puhleeeeze!

The collection:

Today I’m, going to tell you about Unlawful Blush and I am really excited about it. Unlawful is described as an amber pink with silver micro sparkles. I normally don’t like sparkle in my blush, but one swipe of Unlawful changed my mind instantly. It is a warm bronze rose with tons of silver shimmer in the pan, but fortunately the sparkle translates to the skin as VERY subtle shimmer–you have to be VERY up close and personal or at just the right angle to see the sparkles at all. I challenged my co-worker and she couldn’t see any at all–but we were inside the office, outside may be different and I’m not convinced there would be too much difference. The advantage 0f the sparkle is that it acts as a highlighter to give your cheeks a luminous glow! With such a warm blush I find it an unusual choice to add cool silver shimmer rather than gold, but hey it works–and works beautifully!

As with all NARS blushes, it is finely milled, smooth and easy to apply. The pigment on NARS blushes is great, but as my friend Melody of Cosmetically Challenged says, “On a woman of color it can come off very light but what’s great about this blush is that it’s buildable.” Done and done.

I’m so glad Unlawful is a permanent addition to line. It is a most unusual shade I don’t have in my collection i(t’s true I pink swear)! I can’t stress enough not to be afraid of the micro-sparkle–it is NOTHING like NARS Orgasm or Super Orgasm which to me were a HUGE glitter-fest. No. no. NO. Unlawful does not cross into Glitterland. It is much more sophisticated than that and will be my go-to Fall blush along with last years Douceur.

Francios’ Nars Insight:

“When it comes to blush, how and where you apply it is more important than what color you use. Cheek color shouldn’t be limited to the apples (no one blushes only on their cheeks!). I always blend a bit into the hairline, along the jawbone, and on the tip of the nose to create a more natural-looking, all-over hint of color.”

What blush will you be sporting this fall? Any favorites from the fall collections?

  1. Hmmm, interesting! I don’t usually go for sparkle in my blush but that one is worth a look next time I’m at Nordstrom. A nice change for use cool-tone gals

    • I don’t like obvious sparkle in my blushes either, that’s why I like this one–no sparkle on the cheeks, just a nice subtle glow!

  2. It’s a bit too sparkly for me but I’m a natural look girl at heart.

  3. I was going to buy this but then I read that Benefit Rockateur is a reasonable dupe for it and I already owned that!
