This best-selling, most iconic shade for cheeks delivers healthy-looking colour that immediately enlivens the complexion and provides a natural-looking blush effect that flatters any skin tone. The translucent, natural tones, each with a subtle pink for a natural-looking blush undertone to highlight the complexion. The blush has a silky, superfine micronized powder pigments in matte and shimmering shades to ensure irresistibly soft, blendable application. A light application of even the highest-intensity hues delivers a natural-looking flush. The formula is buildable and delivers an ultra-sheer to powerful pops of colour.

On cheeks, they work as a highlighter and blush depending on the shade. The shades in the palette are suitable for all skin tones. One swipe of the formula fives a subtle hint of color with dewy finish. The formula is buildable from sheer to medium. I am so loving this trying different shade every day from the palette. I do prefer to set the formula with a powder to elongate its wear time on my combination skin. The glow is definitely real, very dewy. On my oily lids, I use a eye primer to make it last longer. For a single color swipe on my lids, I do not drag it till the fold as my oily lids leave a crease pretty soon otherwise. But with the dewy finish I get from this formula, I am all in to carry a pressed powder with me. For dry skins, you will not to worry about a setting powder though.
Nars Oil-infused Lip Tint is a sheer lip oil-tint in the universally flattering orgasm shade. This new Orgasm Oil-Infused Lip Tint adds sheer sensation and a surge of hydration for seductively plush lips with a hint of tint. This oil-tint applies clear on the lips but adjusts to a very pretty pink within 2-3 minutes. The tint has a very slight gold shimmer. It feels very hydrating without feeling like it’s going to slide off the lips or any sticky feeling.
