Nars Blush Review + Swatches

After using NARS bronzer, Laguna, and being so impressed with the formulation, 
pigmentation, and color I knew I wanted to try one of their award winning blushes. 
But, which one??!! There are so many pretty shades to pick from. 

I visited Sephora a couple weeks ago and got the associate to give me her opinion of which
color would transition nicely for Fall/Winter. I wanted something a little different than just
a pink, or coral, or neutral. 

I went with NARS, Sin, a berry with gold shimmer. 
Nars blushes retail at Sephora for $28. 

Thing to know about this blush is a little does go a long way. It is a very pigmented blush
so a light dab rather than a swirl with your brush will be best if you have light to medium 

Nars Sin is one of their bestselling blushes and if you follow Beauty trends you know that it was 
a shade released in their Danmari blush palette last year. Sephora no longer has the palette for 
sale, but it had four of their best selling blushes, along with a bronzer and highlighter. You 
can still find the palette online, but it is going for $179 so good luck with that!

What do you think about this berry blush? What are you favorite Fall blushes? 


  1. Nars makes incredible products! The shade looks amazing; I'll have to check it out in stores.

  2. Wait.. I have to change blushes for Fall/Winter?! I have never done this! Does this mean I need to put up my pink stain and gloss too?!


What’s The Story, Brooke?

I'm Brooke. Brooke Story to be exact... hence the title of my blog. I'm southern, still barely in my twenties, and have a few too many lip glosses in my purse.
