Spring 2013 brings Nars Seduction blush (now available on Narscosmetics.com and Nordstrom.com), called a Sangria color. This deep burgundy applies with a very slight sheen when applied (it’s just enough to keep the color from going completely matte, without adding shimmer).
I have a weakness for blue-based reds, and Seduction falls right into that sweet spot. When I first opened Nars Seduction, it reminded me of the blush portion of the now-discontinued Soho de Chanel palette. However, I found that Seduction is warmer compared to the more brown, icier Soho de Chanel.
Here is Nars Seduction on Liz:
On this wintry day, Liz paired Nars Seduction with Chanel Rouge Allure Pirate (reviewed here), Guerlain Les Fauves eyeshadow quad, and Nars Dark Rite Soft Touch Shadow Pencil (available here and here). She’s also wearing a very light layer of Tom Ford Gold Dust bronzer, particularly on cheeks (but also everywhere as its subtle enough). Same makeup:
Even our friendly dog Sherman loves Nars Seduction blush…
As you can see, fair warm skin can be enhanced with Nars Seduction. Unlike the previous deep Nars Mounia blush (now discontinued), which I found too uncontrollable to maintain in my makeup collection, Nars Seduction can be easily applied with a standard brush. Here, we used Nars Yanchiyo brush.
Nars Cosmetics sent Seduction blush and Dark Rite Soft Touch pencil to Cafe Makeup for consideration for review. This post includes affiliate links (for more information, see About Cafe Makeup)
