NARS Enchanted creme blush-peachy perfection for summer nights

I am no different to anyone else and am completely embracing the peach/coral craze for spring 2011! As we speak I am wearing a Coral lipgloss by GOSH and Barry M nail polish in what else? 'coral!!' I literally cant get enough of it and was on the lookout for the perfect peach creme blush, as the ones I have are pinks and plums (the plum colours i tend to mix with lipgloss and wear on my lips as i find them a bit dirty looking for my face at times!)
So searching through ASOS beauty shop I stumbled upon the NARS section (ok I went straight to NARS! Its my latest obsession!!)  and checked out their range of creme blushes there were three that caught my eye out of the five colours these being :

Cactus flower-shimmering poppy (looks stunning,but is out of stock atm and I have a very similar MAC one)Lokoum-Rose coral with shimmer.And finally...Enchanted-Soft peach with Gold sparkle.I picked enchanted, as it's so different to any creme blushes or in fact regular blushes that I have,and had high hopes for it and how it would sit very nicely on my Holy Grail NARS sheer glow foundation and add the 'glow' onto my cheekbones that weirdly 'sheer glow' doesnt (I dont love it any the less for this error in product naming!!!) see my review hereHere's the blurb..'Creme blush by NARS featuring a rich,moisturising creme formula with a velvet texture,
the pigmented blush offers a sheer sweep of colour for a natural, luminous look.'

sounds promising!!

First impressions

Upon opening I was immediately loving the colour,which is what I can only describe as a sunset peach,It reminds me of a yummy cocktail that you might have on holiday or indeed a beautiful Greek (I love Greece, enter personal preference here) sunrise.

As you can see I have really given this blush a fair trial over the weekend!

The swatches

Heavily Swatched 

  Regular swatch on the left and blended on the right

As you can see it's an absolute beauty of a peach creme blush and very well pigmented.
What you cant see from the images above is the gold glitter that runs through this
blush,which is actually alot more apparent than I expected it to be and transfers like crazy if you go OTT on application. Definitely a creme blush more suited to finger application so as to keep the product concentrated on the area's you want it or you will end up looking
like a disco ball!
(Yes this was my personal experience! eek) 

I have worn this blush both day and night and find the gold glitter to be far to much for
daytime wear although in the evenings it looks fantastic when the light hits!!
In my opinion this is definitely an evening blush that would be best worn on tanned skin and
depending on whether glitter is your thing or not!
I will definitely be wearing this over the summer months when I have more colour and
have learned the phrase 'light application!' off by heart!

ooh and also please excuse the erratic text in this post,I think it's something to do with cutting and pasting text from ASOS I have tried to put it right but its just not having any of it :( xxx  


  1. So pretty! I love all things coral at the moment too, I think its because summer is a-comin :o) (hopefully!) I got my NARS blush in the post today too, but it is at my home home (3hr round trip away!) But I think I will go collect it anyway, So I am definitely a NARS addict too :o) xxxxxx

  2. haha you are a super NARS addict to do a 3hr trip that's so funny (I would so do it too!!) which one did you get? :) xxx

  3. Its really lovely my mum tried to steal it earlier haha:) I'm going to tan up this week especially hehehe xxx

  4. That looks lovely. I'm really into coral too, I bought about 5 different coral polishes last year! I was fancying a peachy blush this morning, I know I've got one somewhere, I just need to find where it's hiding! xx

  5. Its so summery im unable to wear other colours at the moment!
    haha im sure Ive got some peachy blushes somewhere but i NEEDED a creme version *cough* :) xxx

  6. it's really pretty! :) could be used as a bronzer on fair skin it! please check out my makeup blog too when u have a chance <3


  7. I was very impressed with the SKII Facial Treatment Essence (, enough so that I have continued to use the product daily as part of my skin care routine after the test period. It's a luxury purchase to be sure, but this is one of the best products that can really make a significant difference in your skin, and so worth every penny.

    I applied the treatment each morning and evening after cleansing my skin and before moisturizer/primer and then makeup. Within just a few days I could see that my skin was much more supple and smooth - particularly in the t-zone. After about two weeks, I loved the beautiful glow my skin had - even without makeup.

  8. hey Ke yeah i know what u mean it would be a lovely bronzer for fair skins but it applies quite sheer so u would have to be careful on how much you applied because of the glitter content but its such a fab colour!! :) I will defo check your blog out chick xxx

  9. Hiya Lisa,that sounds really good! I love when i get really glowing skin!! I'll have a look! Im really wanting to try out the Liz Earle range aswell it's getting some awesome reviews and the prices are fab! :)xxx

  10. I like the look of this shade, but am a little wary because NC35 ladies usually say it's a little too pale for their skin tones.

    Great swatches - I'll definitely have to give this a good swatch when I'm next in the city!


Comments make me really happy,thanks for taking the time to leave one lovelies! please check back to see my response to any questions :) xxx
