My take on NARS Amour:
My first ever NARS purchase and I am so happy to lay hands on a blush that flatters the Indian skin tone really well. Right from the packaging, to the color and the staying power, this blush surely impressed me really well.
Shade:Amour is described as a ‘Peachy pink’ shade on NARS website. Quite correctly decribed, the shade is a peachy pink with red undertones. A truly flattering shade for all skin tones. It adds warmth and a right amount of color on the Indian skin tone which looks quite natural. I would call it a must-have shade in your Blush collection.
Texture: NARS blushes are one of the best powder blushes you can lay your hands on. Much have been and is being said about them on the blogosphere all around the globe. Although they are costly still you would love to own atleast one of them for sure.
Amour has a buttery smooth texture and is highly pigmented blush. A single swipe of your blush brush is going to pick a nice color that would give you a subtle natural look. Being matte in texture is an added advantage that makes it versatile in use. Matte blush lovers are going to enjoy this shade for sure.
Staying power: Lightly applied, the blush lasted around 5 hours on me with just a BB cream as base in this hot/humid weather. On top of a proper primer and foundation as base, the staying power is surely going to increase.
Packaging: The standard matte sturdy plastic rectangular case holds the actual product inside intact. The huge mirror provided eliminates the need of carrying an extra mirror in your purse ;). I find the packaging quite sturdy and secure.
- A flattering deep peachy pink color
- Adds a natural warmth + color to the skin tone.

- Sturdy packaging
- Completely matte texture makes it easy to use anytime.

Final Word: If you are thinking about picking your first NARS blush, make it Amour ;). The shade, texture, staying power and everything would make you forget about the pinching price.
