Show & Tell :: NARS Blush in Taj Mahal + Exhibit A

I’d been mulling over trying NARS blush for months now. Of course, Drake has drawn attention to the much loved “Orgasm” blush, but the variety of colors are insane. Every time I’m in Sephora I swipe a few swatches of them, trying to decide which I should start with. For $26, I wanted to make sure I got the one I loved the most. That’s pretty pricey for just one blush.

I knew the quality was amazing and there were some very unique colors. So which one do I choose.

After snagging a deal, getting a $30 credit for $15, I thought to myself… This is your shot. Go for it.

I posted a quick twitter poll, and after much mental debate, I decided to go for Taj Mahal and Exhibit A. Why? These were colors I didn’t have and were very unique to NARS. I also couldn’t choose just one LOL.

First Impressions:

Taj Mahal is a burnt orange with shimmer, good pigmentation, and blends well. I think the color can work in all seasons.

Exhibit A is a bright matte red that is very pigmented. I was always a tad intimidated by it when I tested it in store but was always drawn to it. Surprisingly it was easy to work with and I think it will compliment many Fall/Winter looks.

Seeing how great the quality is, I still have some others on my wish list like Torrid, Deep Throat, Dolce Vita, Gina, and Albatross. Hint Hint Santa. 🙂
