As you can see, my pan has been well loved!
NARS' Angelika blush is a beautiful bright cotton candy pink with silver shimmer/glitter. If you aren't a fan of shimmer, you won't like this blush. However, I'm a huge fan of shimmer, and I absolutely love this blush. Some of the shimmer does fall out before the blush hits your cheeks, but some does also transfer onto your skin. I don't find that this blush makes you look like a disco ball, or a 10 year old girl who went heavy handed with the glitter.
Angelika has blue undertones, which I think makes this shade of bright pink more wearable. I like to apply this blush lightly with a Sigma F40, which I think adds just the right amount of colour to my cheeks. NARS' blushes are very pigmented, so you really only need a small amount. NARS' blushes also last all day long on my cheeks. I find it really hard to find a good quality drug store blush, especially since I've tried NARS and Tarte blushes. Nothing else compares!
I know Angelika looks really scary and bright in the pan, but it's actually a very wearable, pretty colour. If you use a light hand, you can't go wrong with this blush! NARS blushes are $32 CAD for 4.8g, which is quite pricey, but so worth it (in my opinion). I've never been disappointed by a NARS blush, and next on my wishlist are Madly and Lovejoy.
What are your favourite blushes? Have you tried NARS' Angelika? :)
