NARS Mata Hari & Miss Liberty


 I don’t remember the last time I bought anything from a blog sale but recently Kariis from did a ‘insta-sale’ on instagram and I snapped up these two beautiful blushes from Nars. I have only had one powder blush from the brand in the past and coincidentally I sold it in a blog sale of my own.. it was Deep Throat and I bitterly regret it now but after playing with these for a week or so I have a feeling I will be buying some more soon.


 Mata Hari seems to look different on everyone, given that I was buying online I took a little look at some swatched beforehand and on some people it looks like a dolly pink and on other it looks so much deeper. Since I’m pale I wasn’t sure how I’d like it but luckily it’s a lot more plum toned that I imagined and I’ve been wearing it a lot. There’s a touch of shimmer but nothing too much which is a good job because Miss Liberty is glitter gone mad. It’s classed as a ‘highlighting blush’ but it gives too much shimmer for me to use on my cheeks and not enough colour so I have been using them together as a blush/highlight combo and I think Miss Liberty really warms up Mata Hari which could be a touch on the cool side of what I like.


I’ve been enjoying a bit of a winter glow recently and these powders have definitely been in the mix with that.. I like a good highlight and a pinch of colour on my cheeks and the compact packaging makes these blushes super travel friendly – which is partly why I bought them.. I’ve been holiday shopping mad, I’ll have nothing to spend when we get there at this rate!

Miss Liberty is available online here and Mata Hari here both priced £21.50 – however I paid about that for both given that they were second hand

    You look gorgeous, I don’t own any NARS except a nail polish but I’m definitely going to swatch Orgasm and Super Orgasm and a few other blushes this week. I really like the packaging and have good thing’s about NARS overall so I’m really looking forward to starting a NARS collection. I must look out for some instagram blog sales too. Thanks and enjoy your NYC holiday.
