If I could choose just one brand of blush to wear for the rest of my life it would be NARS. NARS just does blushes right! The first time I tried one I understood why they have such a cult like following. They’re excellent quality!
The newest blush shade on the block was released recently in the new 413 BLKR collection. The collection is named after NARS’ very first boutique on 413 Bleecker St in New York. The blush also bears the 413 BLKR moniker and is inspired by the high energy of the iconic boutique.
The NARS 413 BLKR blush is a muted raspberry pink with a soft buttery texture and tons of pigment. It’s a universal shade that works well for pale to deep complexions. It looks pretty intense in the pan but it’s actually quite soft when applied lightly and makes a wonderful everyday blush. The 413 BLKR blush applies and blends like a dream on bare skin or on top of a foundation or powder. It feels very soft without being powdery and doesn’t take much effort to blend. In true NARS fashion, the 413 BLKR blush is incredibly pigmented so you’ll have to use a very light hand to avoid over applying. A little goes a very long way! It wore for well over 8 hours (even on bare skin) before I noticed any fading around the edges. The quality is pretty on par with the rest of the amazing NARS blushes I’ve tried. I highly recommend giving the 413 BLKR blush a whirl!
If you haven’t spotted the NARS 413 BLKR collection in stores don’t fret! It’s a NARS exclusive and is only available online. Thankfully, NARS collections stick around a lot longer than MAC so you can still find the blush along with the rest of the vibrant collection on the NARS site. Happy hauling!
