Before I typed this post, I experienced a writer’s block. I literally was staring at the blinking cursor for 3 minutes. That’s basically a long time for me not to say a word or even write. I am highly gregarious in nature. I always get into trouble during my grade school years for being loud and talkative. I remember we have a “Most Talkative” board where you get demerits at the end of the school year. It’s basically the antithesis of getting a star. I have always either been on the first or second spot which I gladly shared it with Roenn Dane. There are weeks that I am just trying to be generous and share the spot with my classmates. OH MAH GAWD! I was capable of writing an entire paragraph about having a writer’s block and I end up talking and talking. Haha.
Back on topic, I’ve been waiting for the release of the Nars Dual Intensity Blushes. Jeffrey from Neiman’s knows that. I’ve been calling him almost every day asking for updates when will this get launch. Since the price is pretty steep at $45 a piece, I just sought to narrow down my list to just one blush, Nars Fervor Dual Intensity Blush. I honestly wanted them all but with all the spring releases happening at the same time, I can only afford to grab one. In all honesty, it’s an arduous decision to just purchase one from the words of a makeup addict.
Nars Fervor Dual Intensity Blush contains a shimmering soft pink on the left and a sparkling deep coppery rose on the right. I chose this one amongst the rest because it’s a blush / bronzer combo. The left shade appears on my skin as a cool bright carnation pink with bright blue undertones and very subtle shimmer. I find this shade as the harder one to show up on my skin than the right side. I need at least 3 layers for it to show up. I also noticed that it is hard to pick up the color with a dry brush but it doesn’t seem to be a problem when using this wet with my beauty blender. The texture is somewhat a bit dry and stiff to be working with. The right side shade appears as a warm burnished copper with red undertones with shimmer. I personally love this shade on my skin. It’s a beautiful blushed bronzer. I did not find any issues with its pigment nor its texture. A single layer was able to show up on my brown skin. It is easy to blend and apply both wet and dry. Both the sides lasted relatively long at almost 11 hours on average.
The Bottom Line:
Nars Fervor Dual Intensity Blush is a great addition to my makeup collection which never stops from growing. It has its unique personality. You can either wear it individually, mixed together or apply the lighter shade above the darker one. On both of my looks below, I just applied the darker shade to help out with my contour and the lighter shade above it on the apples of my cheeks. The new Nars Dual Intensity Blushes are pretty costly but you get 2 products for the price of one. The other remarkable thing is, they are all permanent. Keep track of sales and splurge on these goodies. Sephora Chic Week is coming up in April. For those who are interested/”agog” to know on what products I’m using in the photos below. I used the Chanel Reve d’ Orient on my eyes (review), Sephora Contour 101 Face Palette for contouring (review) and Guerlain Baby Glow in Dore as my foundation (review), Laura Mercier Indiscretion highlighter (review), DiorSnow Rainbow 001 as finishing powder (reviews soon) and LA Splash Cosmetics Latte Confession on my lips (reviews soon).
