Today I have one of the most exciting review in forever: the Nars Sarah Moon Isadora Blush review. I recently purchased quite a few Nars goodies and one of those goodies I got is this absolutely stunning blush. After testing it out thoroughly I feel like it’s right about time to review this little guy. So, if you’re interested in finding out more about this gorgeous blush, make sure you continue reading!
First things first: the packaging. It has always been a dream of mine to own a Nars blush and that’s mainly because of the packaging. I mean how many beauty pictures have you seen all over Pinterest and Weheartit full of those gorgeous Nars packagings. I know I have seen millions of them and that made me want them even more.
Now that I finally have one myself I can happily say that in real life it’s just as amazing as I expected it. It’s actually even prettier than I expected. The packaging is made out of a rubbery plastic material. On the front it says Nars and aside from that it doesn’t have that much to it. It might be really simple, but I can really appreciate a packaging like that.
It was quite hard for me to decide what colour I wanted to buy since the shade I anticipated buying wasn’t available. Originally I would’ve gone for Deep Throat, but because, like I said, that one wasn’t available I ended up going for one from the Sarah Moon collection in a shade called Isadora.
Isadora is according to Nars a lavender pink colour blush. I can see why they’d call it that, and it’s quite an accurate description, but if I had to describe it myself I would’ve done that otherwise. I would say that this is a dusty pink blush with a hint of brick red to it. On the pictures it might come off as quite plummy, but once you see the swatch and the way it looks on my face, you’ll get why I describe it differently.
The quality of the blush is insane. Of course I didn’t expect it to be anything less than mind blowing since it’s such a high-end and also extremely popular brand when it comes to blushes that it almost has to be good. There are many reasons why I think this blush is amazing when it comes to quality, more than I can write down in one post, but I’m going to try to mention as many of them as possible.
One of the first reasons why I like it so much is because of the texture. It’s not an extremely satiny blush, but it is very smooth and soft. The thing I hate about any type of powder is the fact that some of them almost feel like cardboard. This one is the completely opposite of that. It’s a very soft and creamy-like texture. Don’t worry it’s definitely not a cream blush, but it has an almost creamy feel to it if that makes any sense.
Another reason why I like this blush is because of its pigmentation. I know I always say that I don’t like overly pigmented blushes and this one is right on the edge of being overly pigmented, but it’s not completely that. Because it’s quite pigmented it only takes one dip into the powder to cover your cheek in a gorgeous flush of colour. As long as you haven’t been sweeping your blush brush around in the powder for too long you can be as heavy handed as you might want and you’ll still won’t look like a clown. Just beware of the fact that you shouldn’t double dip into the powder because then things can get tricky.
The lasting power of the blush is another reason why this is such an amazing product. Blushes are known for having quite a short lifetime once applied, but this one is definitely an exception to that rule. I don’t know what it is about it, but it just stays in place for forever!
On the top picture my cheeks are bare and on the bottom one I applied the blush. As you can tell it’s not one of those barely visible blushes, but that’s what I like about it. When I buy a thirty Euro blush I don’t want it to be invisible. No, I want it to show up. Not in an extreme way of course, but it does have to be visible.
I also really like the way this blush applies and the way it looks on my skin. It applies very smoothly and evenly and that’s just really nice. The colour is very natural and therefore it fits with lots of different makeup looks. Even though that’s not my biggest concern when I buy a blush, I do think it’s an important feature.
Overall I think that this Nars blush is absolutely amazing. The packaging is stunning and the blush itself is incredible either. The colour is perfect for everyday wear and fits pretty much every look ever. The texture of the blush is absolutely incredible too and the overall quality is just great. I know it’s quite an expensive product, but in my opinion it’s just totally worth it!
The Nars Sarah Moon Isadora Blush is available here for €31,-.
