Review: NARS Powder Blush in Amour

NARS has always been one of my favorite high end brands. They're known for their sleek packaging and high quality products, their most well known being their powder blushes. I have two in my collection and I am head over heels. Today I am going to review the NARS Powder Blush in Amour.

NARS describes Amour as a warm peachy pink, and I totally agree. The dominant shade is a deep pink, with hints of peachy coral. Its a matte blush, but its not flat or dull. The texture provides a slight silky sheen which adds glow to the complexion without using glitter or shimmer. The pigmentation is incredible, which is no surprise when it comes to NARS blushes. The powder itself is so smooth and soft. I've found that NARS blushes have better staying power than most other blushes that I own. Amour typically lasts me six to eight hours before I feel the need to reapply. I highly recommend this blush to anyone looking to dabble in the world of NARS. It can be purchased for $29.00 at Sephora.

Do you own any NARS blushes, or other products by them? I'd love to grow my collection.


  1. What a beautiful colour! I will definitely be checking that out xox


  2. That looks beautiful. I've heard sleek blushes are very similar to Nars. Have you ever tried them? xx

  3. I have two Nars blushes that I totally recomend - Outlaw (which to me is a darker pink, with hints of shimmer, but not overpower) and Seduction(it's a matte blush, kinda scary when we look at it on the pan (since looks like a deep purple blush), but it's actually a really nice warm brownish kinda blush. Amazing for the fall and winter time.

    Amour looks amazing! I'm considering getting more 2 or 3 NARS products around christmas.(I'm dying to get my hands into their eye primmer and their red matte velvet lip pencil for the winter/holiday time) and Amour may have got into the list.
    To me, their blushes are the best blushes I ever tried. Seduction lasts 10 hours on my face...seriously, it's huge!

    Please take Care sweetie! Have a nice day!

    P.S. I saw Sophie's K question and although some sleek colours are similar to the ones that Nars has, their quality isn't the same. Sleek isn't bad, they just don't last as much as the Nars ones.


  4. I really want a nars blush this one looks about the right shade for me too.



  5. This colour is gorgeous, I haven't heard anything about it before! :) Thank you for reviewing! :)
