NARS Liberte Blush Review, Swatches and Photos

To rock the Pantone Color of the Year, Tangerine Tango, I am really loving NARS Liberte Blush from the gorgeous Summer 2012 Collection.

NARS Liberte Blush Review
NARS Liberte Blush

Described as a “burnished apricot”, Liberte is a muted reddened-orange in the matte formula. The color may seem a little intense in the pan but as long as I tap off excess and apply with a light hand, it instantly warms up my NC30 skin in a pretty, natural-looking way.

The blush is also insanely pigmented, so again, remember to go easy and build up the color gradually. And just like all NARS blushes, it is finely-milled and apply smoothly with long-lasting wear. I will definitely be reaching out for this all summer!

    • Hi Angela,

      The two colors are quite different. Modern Mandarine is lighter and more orange while Liberte has more depth and is on the redder side.

    • Hi Lily,

      I haven’t swatched Flush but from the pictures I have seen online, it seems more coral compared to Liberte. I will try to get some swatches on my upcoming NY trip.
