Review: NARS Sin Blush

Nars Sin

One of my all time favorite blushes is NARS Sin. This color is the most gorgeous plummy pink shade which is perfect for a night out! I love to pair this shade with either dark, smokey eyes or a dark, berry lip.

NARS Blush in Sin is said to be “A soft, sheer pressed powder blush. NARS Blush offers a range of translucent, natural shades, each with a subtle pink for natural blush undertone, created to highlight the complexion.” Sin is described as a “berry with gold shimmer.”

Even though this shade looks very shimmery, it doesn’t come off as shimmery on the cheeks. I think Orgasm gives off a lot more shimmer than Sin. Because this color is extremely pigmented, you need to be very light-handed with it. When I first purchased this blush, I hated it! I could not figure out the correct amount of blush to use without having my cheeks look dirty and muddy. However, practice makes perfect. You just have to gently tap your brush into this blush and blend, blend, blend onto the cheeks. This is more of a cool-toned blush but I think this color can work well on both warm and cool skin tones.

This blush lasted on me for about 8 to 9 hours before it started to fade. It does not emphasize any pores or dry patches on my cheeks, however I do moisturize and use a primer before applying anything to my face. Sin is so pretty and gives off such a luminous glow! You can easily forgo highlighting when using this blush. Even though $30 for 0.16 ounces of product seems very pricey, because this blush is very pigmented, it will last you for years. I highly recommend picking this up!
