My HG natural flush - NARS Deep Throat (a second look, clearer swatches)

Nars Deep Throat is a flirty, sheer peach as NARS cosmetics described. It has a hint of pink to it which made it look so pretty.

I originally wanted NARS Orgasm, but when me and Muah went to Rustan's to check the colors, I kinda have 2nd thoughts because I noticed some shimmers even when swatched on my backhand. I think it will accentuate my pores and oiliness of my face, so I opt to swatch Deep Throat and Angelika. I like both but I only have to pick one or else, Muah might change his mind and won't get it for me anymore. lolz. The very happy me felt like walking on the clouds on the way to the counter and paid for it. I was so happy that finally, I have a blush that I really like (it's on my wish list) and lust for the longest time.




 
The PACKAGING:
Honestly, I am not a fan of rubberized packaging in cosmetics. NARS does. (?) I don't like the fact that it attracts marks so easily and the worst part? It's hard to remove. Although it didn't bother some, it's a no-no for me.




 



more accurate color.
 
The COLOR:
Most people who doesn't like Orgasm opt to Deep Throat because they almost have the same color. It is more on pink-peach than peach-pink (if you get what I mean) It's more pinker than Orgasm and has less shimmer. It has that subtle glow effect on cheeks (I'm NC 20) when applied lightly (one should have a light hand here) and I love the fact that I only have to swirl my brush once 'coz a little goes a long way. Just make sure that you blend everything out to achieve that natural looking flush.
 
 
 
 
 
 
  
 
 
 

 

 

I'm not sure if you can actually notice these swatches. haha.. sorry for that. ^_^ I know that these won't justify how pretty the shade of Deep Throat is so you must see it in person and swatch it personally. I also think that the outcome of its color will vary depending on your skin type.
Lasting power is okay. We went out for 4 hours and the color is still there but not that vibrant anymore (i have super oily skin!).

All in all, I am so into this blush. If I will have another chance, I'll surely get one again but because this pan will last me a lifetime (because you only need so little amount) I probably won't. lolz. I want to try Gaiety too, because I want to experiment on wearing cooler tones of blush. ^_^
