Recent Loves / Nars Cream Blush in Cactus Flower



I bought Nars Cream Blush in Cactus Flower probably over a year ago, but I haven't really used it much since then; I have only started reaching out to it recently.
It's extremely pigmented but it's not one of these staining products so it's easy to blend and correct, if you happen to apply too much.
The formula is moisturizing, enriched with vitamin E and leaves a silky feeling on the skin; the packaging is the typical Nars black trademark compact, with a good size mirror and a generous amount of product - This will last a lifetime!



It's a poppy red with gold shimmer and I think the red/gold combo works brilliantly together!
It actually looks grittier in the pan and, once applied to the cheeks, it just leaves a beautiful flush with a luminous finish.
I think this blush is great for every season: cream blushes are perfect for a dewy summer look, but I can see it working really well for a 'snow white' winter look, too.
Personally, I love red blushers but I find that - in powder formulations - they appear even more powdery than other colours, so I'm glad this is part of my collection and will be much loved!

What do you think of Cactus Flower? :)

  1. This is a really lovely colour, i've seen it before but never taken much notice of it thinking it'd be too bright for me but it looks lovely in that swatch x

  2. I love the look of this blush! I have a few of the NARS powder blushes and have been meaning to try a cream one, this colour looks beautiful. I agree red blushes in powder form can look a little cakey, I also find because I'm very pale they are a little harder to work with, maybe a cream blush is a solution to this problem!

  7. Gorgeous colour! I don't have any really red blushes like it - but I think with a small amount, it would look very youthful, dewy and fresh :) I love NARS blushes!
