NARS dual intensity blush in Craving was my latest blush purchase from NARS and I couldn’t wait to try it since I love their Dual intensity eyeshadows and other blushes in Dual intensity formula I have previously tried .
What I love about this formula it’s sheerness . They are buildable but even the darkest shades can work for lighter skin tones with it’s lightweight color. I know that many complain that these do not show up even on lighter/medium skin tones. You really need a proper brush for these – smaller, denser and shorter bristles or preferably with synthetic hair because they pick up more product and then you can blend it out with the brush with natural hair. (my favorite ia MAC 127). What makes Dual Intensity formula so special is its finish – there is no dry powdery look ever so it makes it perfect for dry and mature skin. It goes on evenly and blends easily. I haven’t experienced any fading throughout the day.
Craving has two colors – one is darker and described as Luminous Bronze while lighter color is Opalescent Pink. It’s an interesting combination, since one would expect to have two colors with the same undertone. Luminous Bronze side is definitely very warm while highlighter side is cool toned silver with pinkish undertone. But as always Mr NARS loves combining unexpected colors – often found in NARS eyeshadow duos.
NARS dual intensity blush duos retail for 45$ and I purchased mine at Sephora
