NARS Guy Bourdin Holiday 2013 Collection bring us a new blush, Coeur Battant.
Described as a magenta, Couer Battant is a bright cool-toned dark hot pink with matte finish. It is currently the darkest pink in the entire NARS Blush collection with no close dupe. Gaiety and Desire are both lighter.
The blush was heavily pigmented and swatched a raspberry pink color that stained my NC30 skin. Unlike most NARS blushes I have, it was slightly harder to blend and I had to really buff off the edges to avoid a harsh line. However, a sheer application gave me a gorgeous pink flush that instantly perked up my complexion. The wear was also good and lasted without fading for 6 to 8 hours.
Overall, NARS Coeur Battant is a nice blush that will work on both light to dark skintones. Just make sure you apply with a light hand!
NARS Coeur Battant Blush is available at narscosmetics.com and Sephora for $29.
