Nars Contour Powders01Who doesn’t love a little sculpting?  I love the fact that the three new NARS Contour Blushes in Olympia (light), Paloma (medium) and Gienah (deep) ($42 each) include both a contour and a highlight shade in one palette. Nars Contour Blushes are available at Barneys.com, Nars online, Nordstrom.com, and Sephora.

Nars Contour Powders03As you would expect, all three powders are excellent quality, and beautifully formulated and coordinated. We found that the colors were easy to use, especially when using the NARS Contour Brush #21 ($42), which is perfectly shaped to work with these powders.

Nars Contour blush 21eNARS Olympia is the lightest shade for a very subtle effect on light skin tones. This is the best color for Liz and my MAC NC15/ NARS Deauville/Chanel Ivoire skin tone depending on the desired effect.

Overall, these are remarkably easy, extremely high quality and can be counted on to give professional results. Nars Contour Blushes are available at Barneys.com, Nars online, Nordstrom.com, and Sephora.

  1. Olympia is so so so gorgeous!! Looks so nice in your skin! :) xx

  2. Olympia looks beautiful on Liz! I wonder if I should consider Paloma or Geinah for my MAC NC 40 warm skintone? are any of the shades comparable to the sculpting powder by Kevin Aucoin..? it has been on my wishlist for really long!

  3. Gienah is so pretty. I super love the shade for these kinds of shade makes up a very beautiful smokey eye makeup.

  4. Olympia is perfect on Liz, it has a very Hollywood matte feel. I have been contemplating this one since its launch.
