First Impressions: NARS Cactus Flower Cream Blush

Thursday, 4 August 2011
Hiya,

I posted recently about MAC's Petticoat which I bought from a blog/You Tube sale. I also bought a cream blush by NARS in Cactus Flower from the same YouTuber.
This blush is described as a 'Shimmering Poppy' on the NARS site. It is pretty much spot on- it is a red-coral with gold shimmer. It does look incredibly scary in the pan but when applied and blended out, it makes my skin look like it is glowing! It really isn't as crazy as it looks.
I am really loving this blush. I have been alternating between this and Deep throat since I bought it. I sometimes use both which also looks gorgeous!

I did wonder how it would blend but it is so light in texture and smooth that I have had no trouble at all in blending.

What do I think of it? So far, I am really enjoying it. It was the perfect time to get it because of the heatwave we have been having here and this is so easy to apply even with your fingers.

What blushes are you liking this summer?

  4. I totally did haha! Both for £15 each which, considering how little they were used (and petticoat is LE)- a great deal!

  6. It's a very pretty colour. I'm always put off with the shimmer in NARS blushes, this doesn't look overly sparkly though x
