NARS Seduction Blush Review
NARS Seduction Blush

Described as a “sangria”, NARS Seduction Blush is a dark wine, almost burgundy color with a satiny sheen. It is most likely the darkest red in NARS’ current line of blushes. NARS Dolce Vita is lighter, more brown and less shiny while NARS Liberte is way more orange.

The blush applied smoothly with extremely good color payoff. I was a little intimidated by how dark the color looked in the pan, but it warmed up my NC30 skin beautifully and added a nice, healthy flush. It also stayed on 6-8 hours without fading. So glad to have added this to my blush collection!
