Exclusively at Nordstrom (yes, right now) is a small-ish yet wickedly lascivious NARS Collection called Final Cut. Within this collection you'll find four Blushes matched with four Satin Lip Pencils and one Illuminator. Today I have Love Blush and Descanso Satin Lip Pencil to swatch and share!
Love Blush ($29.00) is a satin pinky peach. Immediately it reminded me of Orgasm without the sparkle. This is the perfect, natural cheek flush that I'm going for. Aptly named Love because I'm in love with it. It's just pigmented enough (and buildable) to dust on my cheeks for every day or layer a bit for an evening. NARS Blushes are always a part of my top 3 cheek products and when I happen to get a blush like this one I'm always reminded of why! Blends like a dream and lasts a full day (about 8 hours or more, for me).
Descanso Satin Lip Pencil ($25.00) is a beautiful apricot. The formula is creamy, comfortable and wonderfully moisturizing (even in this cold, dry weather), wearing very well for a lip pencil with quite a bit of slip. I get about 3-4 hours of wear if I don't eat or drink. Re-application is super easy and it's a portable size. Win-Win!
In the photo below I'm wearing Love Blush and Descanso Satin Lip Pencil. Apologies that it's a little blurry and for some reason my eyebrows decided to all but disappear... I was rushing out the door to see Wicked so I took a car selfie that appeared a lot more clear on my phone. Ah, well... at least you know the color is pure ;)
