NARS Mata Hari Blush (Review and Swatch)
NARS' Mata Hari blush is one of my favorite summer blush, and probably is my favorite blush all year round. Mata Hari is a beautiful dusty rose matte blush. On NARS's website, the color is described as "pink with a race of crimson". It looks very flattering and natural on the face, plus it's matte!
The packaging comes with a black matte rubberized finish that looks slick and compact.
Back side, made in Canada, 0.16 oz/ 4.8 g
Isn't it so gorgeous? The color is very pigmented, so it's important to use very light hand with it and slowly build it up if needed. It has a silky soft texture and a powdery-like feel, but not at all too powdery.
Here is the Mata Hari swatch on my bare arm, heavily swatched on the left, and semi-heavy blended-out swatch on the right. When applying this on the face, you only need very tiny bit of the product since it's really pigmented. The color is very easy to work with and blend, just use a light hand! (tapping your brush and/or use a stippling brush) This blush is so pretty on its own, but will look pretty with layering blush as well.
Readers, have you try NARS Mata Hari blush? How do you love it? What's your favorite NARS blushes?
