New Release | NARS Dual Intensity Blushers | Review/Swatches

NARS Dual Intensity Blusher Adoration 
NARS Dual Intensity Blusher Panic
FNARS Dual Intensity Blusher Fervor
NARS Dual Intensity Blusher Frenzy

 NARS Dual Intensity Blushers are like no other blushers, now I personally never tried any of the NARS Dual Intensity Eyeshadows so didn't really know what to expect I had a look at reviews and youtube videos in preparation before they launched in the UK. It seems being a pro member gave us earlier access to these before they were released roughly a week later for everyone else to purchase.

I could have happily bought them all as I think they are super pretty there is a total of 6 available, all the duos except 'Panic' and 'Fervor' come with a highlighter shade, there is also 'Jubilation' which has two highlighter shades, I did debate picking this up too but went for the brush instead.

I found if I'm wanting to use these dry then they pick up best with my MAC Angled Brush as the bristles are a little rougher than other blusher brushes, they do pick up well with the NARS #23 Wet/Dry Blush Brush but I think the head is slightly too small to apply over the cheeks for a gentle and equal flush of colour. I am yet to try these wet with the brush but I did read when using these wet with the brush you want to use small buffing motions. I also read a review saying these become more metallic once wet I personally didn't find that to be the case, all the swatches on the right of each picture above are wet swatches they definitely do intensify like crazy once wet. There is a couple of techniques to use these wet either by spraying pan and swirling the brush in the pan or spraying the brush, I personally will be trying these by spraying the brush. Overall these exceeded my expectations and I am mega happy I took the rick and picked them up.
Blushers £30.00 each | Brush £31.00.
