Swatch: NARS Mata Hari Blush

This is NARS Mata Hari blush, a cool toned bright rose petal pink with a matte finish.  In the pan it looks rather insanely bright, but applied to the skin, it blends out beautifully to give a pretty doll-like flush to the cheeks.

The texture is a little chalky, but very blendable.  The blush is rather well pigmented, and on pale skin it's best to be light handed in the application to avoid a bright 80s style stripe effect. Unless that's the look you're going for, of course!

Presented in NARS' standard weighty black matte packaging, this is a new and much loved addition to my blush collection.  I apologise for the pouting.  I just can't help it.

NARS products are available from SpaceNK, Liberty and from NARS online, where this blush costs £19.50.


  1. I have been intrigued by this blush -- really need to swatch it in person! Looks lovely on you.

  2. LOVE Mata Hari blush - it lasts forever too, as you only have to use such a small amount.

  3. Wow really pretty colour for the winter!
