Guest Post: Nars Mata Hari Blush Review!

Natalie Wednesday, October 3, 2012

NARS Mata Hari Powder Blush ($28) can be found at Sephora. After being obsessed with NARS ultra-pigmented products I’ve begun slowly-but-surly expanding my NARS blush collection. On a recent trip to Sephora in hopes to pick out a more fall/winter friendly blush (everyone changes blush with seasons right? Ha) I ended up picking Mata Hari. I was un-sure that I'd like Mata Hari after swatching it two different times when I went into Sephora, but after using this blush it is a wonderful addition to my collection. I usually lean towards peachy-pink blushes but this beautiful cool, matte, rosy pink color is a lot of fun!

Despite how bold this color looks in the pan, its not nearly as vibrant when applied. This blush is by far my most pigmented blush I own. The picture above is only using one swipe with my Sigma F40 brush. Because it’s so pigmented a light hand and blending applies Mata Hari sheer and subtle. If your looking for a more intense look of course add a little more to intensify your look. Usually I find myself grabbing this blush when I use a matte foundation, I can count on Mata Hari staying on all day. Mata Hari is very matte (meaning without any simmer or sheen) so if you want to brighten up your cheeks, or have a glowy face you'll need to use a highlighter.

Final Thoughts…

Overall, this is a great fall/winter powder blush! Remember its ultra-pigmented and needs to be applied sparingly. Now that I have had NARS blushes for while, the only negative thing I could say is the adorable packaging gets messy easily. Other then that, this is a great rosy-pink blush!

  3. Awesome post :D I'm now really considering this blush. I actually wasn't a fan of NARS Orgasm since it emphasized my pores, but since this is matte I really wanna try it out :)
