The idea of orange blush may seem a bit off but hear us out on this one. It’s not just the sleek black packing or brand name that made us a little too excited about this burnt orange blush, it’s because it really is quite beautiful and not telling you how fabulous this blush is would only be a tragedy.
Blush is one of those beauty must haves that you have to get right. There is no room for error. Error means clown face and who wants to be confused for “It” from Stephen King’s twisted fantasies? Orange blush may seem even scarier but trust us when we say, it’s not – at least when you have the right one in hand. Nars Taj Mahal is the every single thing. everything. It looks
good fantastic on every skin tone but the kicker with this blush is the darker you are, the better it looks. It’s a “blazing burnt orange with golden shimmer” – a very vibrant shade of orange that you have to see to believe.
From porcelain white to midnight black skin, on every skin tone this blush is a stunner. Girls with the skin complexion of Jeneil Williams take note, Nars Taj Mahal is your “Freakum” blush. Your je ne sai quois. Your splurge that’s totally worth it. Unlike many other blushes that fall somewhere on the pink and mauve scale, the orange that is this blush comes across more than intimidating. but it’s not. it’s magic cheek paint that you can use all over your face for that glow, that flush that you can only get when adrenaline is rapidly pulsating through your veins – more commonly seen after: a. a rabid rottweiler has been chasing you b. you win the lottery or c. you have a really good sex session.
Learning how to wear orange blush takes no learning curve with this rich pigment face powder. With one light stroke, you get a gleamy glow but as you build on the color, the intensity builds and the color goes from light golden orange to a redder, richer, deeper orange. the color payoff is rich and deep and the texture is smooth and soft. This blush is on our holy grail list for life. Brush Nars Taj Mahal across your clavicles and down your decolletage for a subtle hint of sexiness and it’s all she wrote.
