Are You a NARSissist?

I love makeup releases. I love seeing what new (and sometimes not so new) products companies come out with. Some products I can’t wait to get my hands on and others I decide to pass on. The minute I saw the new blush palettes from NARS I couldn’t wait to get my hands on them. 

NARS has released two blush palettes the Wanted I and the Wanted II. The colors make me think that Wanted I is meant for fair to medium skin tones and Wanted II is meant for medium to deep skin tones. I purchased the Wanted I.


Both palettes have 6 shades. There are 4 matte blushes, 1 shimmering blush, and 1 light shade that I think is supposed to be a highlight.


Compared to my Benefit blush palette the NARS palette is a lot smaller. But don’t think the pans are itty bitty, they are just slightly smaller than the full size NARS blushes (only 0.03 oz difference) – the packaging just isn’t bulky. I personally love how slim and streamlined the packaging is and there is a large mirror so its perfect for travelling.

The blushes are not too powdery but they are not too stiff. They are pigmented but buildable. I like blushes that are not jam packed with color. I like to have a faint wash of color on my cheeks. But if you like a bolder blush then these could still work for you because they layer nicely.

Swatched top to bottom: Unlimited, Buzzed, Notorious, Kingpin, Bumpy Ride, and Crave. 

These swatches don’t even do the blushes justice, they swatch light but they apply beautifully.

Swatched top to bottom: Unlimited, Buzzed, Notorious, Kingpin, Bumpy Ride, and Crave. 

I’ve worn these blushes the last couple of days and have used the colors Kingpin and Bumpy Ride and have used Unlimited as a highlight. They have applied beautifully and were easy to blend.

Overall I am so happy with this purchase.  I love blush palettes I think they make so much sense because they are usually a great deal.

What are some of your favorite blushes or which brands? I’d love to know!
