NARS ‘Torrid’

NARS – Torrid blush

Hey dolls,
The other day I was browsing my local Space NK – I always stop and hover around NARS because everything is just so beautiful but I dont usually pick anything up. This time I decided to get another blush and just treat myself, as I would love a few more NARS blushes and they are amazing!

I first heard of the blush ‘Torrid’ after watching Zara from ‘Mouldyfruit‘ talk about it in a recent video and as she is of a similar skin tone (but a little more tan!) and said how much she loved it I thought it might work for me too – it also looked lovely in the store.

The only other NARS blush I have is ‘Luster‘ which is a gorgeous golden apricot colour with subtle shimmer so I thought i’d compare them to give an idea of how different it is.

To me, Torrid is a Reddish coral with golden shimmer, I am usually a little scared of red toned blushers but I think it works well on the skin and I love that it has that little bit of shimmer too.

You need a light hand as it is very pigmented but thats a good thing really! I just make sure to have a big powder brush to blend it all together afterwards.

I might mention this again when i’ve used it a little more as i’m still new to the colour but so far I really like it and i’m glad I stepped out of my comfort zone =]

Please let me know what your fave NARS blush is – Im looking to grow my collection and would love to check out more! I think ‘Madly’ might be next!
