NARS blush in Luster

Omigosh, my first NARS purchase. I've always wanted to try a NARS product, but they are just so expensive. I ordered one of their blushes, Luster, from cosme-de for $30ish with free shipping. I highly recommend them, they posted my order quickly and I believe it is authentic.

What made me choose Luster? Well, to be honest, it seems like everyone owns the famous Orgasm blush. Sure, it's a nice colour, but it doesn't really excite me. After a night of researching and looking at many swatches, I decided to go for Luster.

What do I think? I love it! While it may not be that unique in the pan, it gives a gorgeous, apricot-like sunkissed glow when applied. The pigmentation is amazing, and it's definitely the most long wearing blush I own. It survives hot, sweaty, 12 hour days and still looks as perfect at the end of the day as it did when I first put it on. 


Cosme-de is based in Hong Kong, hence the foreign writing! I find it strange that the expiry date says 2017 but in the bottom right hand corner it says 24 months?

 Top - NARS blush in Luster
Bottom - Sleek blush in Rose Gold
I initially thought they looked a little bit similar, but they are not!

Other:

Covergirl Clump Crusher mascara
Australis eye pencil

Overall, I've had a fairly good experience with this, but I don't think I would buy too much more from NARS due to how expensive it is.

What are your thoughts on NARS products?

    1. It is really nice :) I've heard a few dodgy things about hqhair so I haven't tried them. But cosme-de are really good!

  2. This is one of my favourite blushes!

    I love NARS' Smudgeproof eyeshadow base, it's the best eye primer for me.

    I tend to limit my NARS purchases due to the prices!

  3. My first Nars product was Nars blush in Torrid :) I love how long lasting and pigmented they are. Totally agree with the hype. I never heard of Cosme-de. Might give them a go some time
