Review: NARS Blush/Bronzing Powder Duo

A girl can’t have too many blushes, right? I recently wrote a post about my review about my Elizabeth Arden Sunblush Blush and it is safe to say that I added yet another blush to my favourite’s list.

I’ve been told that NARS has incredible blushes, and I wanted to try one. I found this lying in the travel section of Sephora and knew this was a great time to give it a shot.


The NARS Blush/Bronzing Powder Duo had a simple black and white design on the packaging and compact. I love that it does not take much for a product to look good.

Once you open up the compact you find both the blush and the bronzing powder. The compact is a travel mini version of the blush in Orgasm and the bronzing powder in Laguna.

Blush and Bronzing Powder Swatch

Above are the swatches of both the blush and bronzing powder. Orgasm is a beautiful peachy-pink iridescent shimmer while Laguna is a sheer light brown shimmer. The blush is one I would use during the spring/summer season as it is a little more pink that my other blush. I like to use the bronzing powder as a contour colour for the winter; it has a dark hue but not too much. Both products have a beautiful shimmy glean and it catches sunlight easily.

I paid a total of $30+HST for this product. The full-sized blush/bronzing powder duo is $54+HST. The price is decent, but I don’t mind paying around this price for a blush. Blushes are used every day and if I can get 30 uses (which I do) out of one compact, I think I’ve got my money’s worth.

This product is absolutely wonderful. I am glad that I gave NARS blushes a try. I would like to try other blushes as well in the future and this definitely was the product to sway me to NARS.
