NARS Cream Blush in Cactus Flower & Penny Lane


NARS is well-known for blush (of the powder variety) due to the popularity of Orgasm.  But I find their cream blush formula to be just as good.

I have two cream blushes by NARS, Cactus Flower and Penny Lane, and they couldn't be more different.  Cactus Flower is a look-at-me super bright coral pink with shimmer and Penny Lane is a very understated muted pink.

Formula-wise they both feel like any other cream blush at first.  But once applied and blended, they have a powder-like finish and feels very light on your skin - no heavy clogging feeling that you get with some other cream blushes. 


  1. Ooo just what I was after actually. Thanks for the review, I was tossing up between the 2!

  2. If I was to pick between the two, it'll be Cactus Flower for sure :)

  3. I am lusting after cactus flower big time thanks for swatches xx
