My NARS Blushes: Deep Throat, Douceur, Madly, Orgasm

If only the packaging didn’t melt… I would definitely get MOAR of these blushes. Why NARS do you have such crappy packaging? The rubber melts yo! Yes, I thought I’d start with this rant before I show you the blushes. I do like the blushes very much, and Deep Throat is my favourite of the lot. But UGH, the packaging really makes me mad, especially when I have to de-pot the blushes later on.

Do you notice the packaging starting to disintegrate? Give it more time and it’ll turn into sticky goo. My Laguna died and depotted, and Orgasm is starting to feel sticky. This blush is about 3 years old. The others are not 2 yet, so I’m giving them another year before they start to die. Anyway, enough of that. Let me show you the blushes. I bought Orgasm at Mecca when I was in Australia, and I ordered the rest from kissandmakeupny.com. I’m never going to buy makeup in Australia anymore though. So darn expensive!

Douceur is a warm plummy rose which is dark enough to contour while Madly is a light bronzey peach that looks great on warmer skin tones. Orgasm was my first blush because I was sucked into the hype back then, and truthfully, this one transforms on my skin. If I wear pink lipstick, Orgasm looks more pink. If I wear coral lipstick, Orgasm will change accordingly. It’s like a chameleon, this one. Deep Throat is the most flattering pink blush I ever own. I think this suits both warmer and cooler skin tones, and it gives the face a lift with just a swipe on the cheeks.

I really wanted to expand the NARS blush family, but I’m not going to do that unless I’m prepared to de-pot everything. I love the look of that bright pink Angelika and also that bright orange of Exhibit A… I’m still holding back. Have any of you experienced this packaging meltdown, and do you know how to prevent it? I keep my makeup in a cool dry place, so I don’t think the weather has much to do with it. Furthermore, my room is cool to start off with as it is air conditioned. Any feedback is much appreciated!

Do you own any NARS blush? Which is your favourite?
