‘llThis is such a pretty collection for the NARS Spring 2020 edit and it’s entirely dedicated to one of my favourite products, blush! I have photos and swatches of all ten new shades, which rather excitingly includes the return of a 2013 limited edition, Coeur Battant. Enjoy!!
All these blushes laid out together is like serious eye candy. This was such a fun and satisfying swatching session!
What’s in the NARS Spring 2020 Edit
So as I have said, this edit is purely blushes which I think is really cool. Blush is the perfect product for Spring time vibes and nothing can beat the healthy flush of the perfect blush. Oh I’m a poet!
I have quite a few favourites, which I will share shortly, but here’s the full line up of shades:
- Behave – matte pink mauve
- Dominate – shimmering deep plum
- Coeur Battant (bring back from 2013) – bright cool fuchsia
- Tempted – mid-tone beige
- Savage – shimmering red brown
- Illicit – satin peachy nude
- Aroused – satin deep burgundy
- Orgasm X – shimmering deep coral with gold pearl
- Zen – natural beige
- Thrill – matte cool light pink
There are a couple shades that need a tiny bit of further chat. So as I have briefly touched on, not all the newness is technically new because Coeur Battant, that amazing fuchsia pink, is a returning limited edition from 2013. It was very much loved and I think a lot of beauty junkies will be very happy to welcome it back!
Also, check out Orgasm X!! This is NARS’ iconic universal Orgasm shade, but deeper. So if you have a darker skin tone, or want something that makes a lot more of an impact, you might be about to fall in love with NARS Orgasm X. I love it!
NARS Spring 2020 Blush Swatches
I had a lovely time swatching these shades. I think I have a few new faves. They are in two rows.
Behave, Dominate, Coeur Battant, Tempted and Savage:
Illicit, Aroused, Orgasm X, Zen, Thrill:
I absolutely love NARS blushes, and these do not disappoint, perhaps with the exception of Zen which I struggled to swatch well, mainly because it’s pretty much the same colour as the skin on my arm. I’ll need to try it on my face, but I can’t see it being very ‘blushy’. I think if you are wanting to go super-nude, it could work really well.
My favourites are Behave, Dominate, Savage, Aroused and Orgasm X. Tom Ford actually have a blush called Savage that I love, but it’s actually nearer to the NARS Tempted shade, although not totally dissimilar. NARS Savage is gorgeous and coppery.
Behave is a prettiest, easy to apply and wear matte, whereas Dominate will require a lighter hand. It will look beautiful loaded on to the eyes with matching cheeks.
Aroused is a beauty – I love a deep berry blush and the satin finish is beautiful. And finally I think Orgasm X is going to be a real winner. It is such a stunning intense coral with Orgasm’s signature gold. I want to wear it on my eyes too.
