Spring 2015: NARS Dual Intensity Blush…

New for Spring 2015 is NARS Dual Intensity Blush and I am SO EXCITED!  If you know anything about me – you must know that I LOVE blush.  It has to be my most favorite thing.  For Spring 2015, NARS Cosmetics introduces the new Dual Intensity Blush.  Featuring NARS’ exclusive Translucent Prismatic Technology, the newly- imagined formula allows for multi-dimensional effects with a uniquely weightless, luxurious texture. Six modern shade pairings curated by François Nars offer a universal spectrum of hues that works across all skintones. My favorite thing about is has to be the wet/dry feature.  This allows an almost watercolor effect which is going to look spectacular in the summer (so hard to think about that right now – as I type it is currently 12 degrees).

Spring 2015:  NARS Dual Intensity Blush

NARS Dual Intensity blush Sweeps on dry for a bold flush or wet for a translucent wash of color. Dry pigments impart a natural glow that warms the complexion and fuses weightlessly. Dampen NARS’ exclusive Wet/Dry Blush Brush before application for a watercolor effect—dab over the apples of the cheeks and swirl in a circular motion to paint on a subtle tint.  Designed in a sensorial, soft-touch square case with a modern magnetic closure, six luxuriously embossed duos heighten the art of transformation.
