Packaging: 9/10

The NARS Blush packaging is made of NARS’ classic rubberized black plastic and has a lid with a mirror inside that snaps shut. The outside of the packaging is a magnet for powder products, which makes it difficult to keep clean.

Quality: 8.5/10

Seduction is a deep, burnt red wine color with an almost matte finish.

This blush has good pigmentation and color payoff. But the formula is a little dry, making the powder stiff. The blush still blends over the skin decently well–it imparts some unevenness that needs to be blended out and layered over.

I had no problems with the blush retaining its color throughout the day and don’t see any fading even after eight (8) hours of wear.

Ease of Use: 8.5/10

This blush transfers onto the skin easily, though it does apply with a bit of unevenness. The formula doesn’t blend out as effortlessly as some softer powders, but is certainly workable with a little buffing.

Price: 9.25/10

For $29.00 you get 0.16 ounces (4.8 grams) of blush. You actually get more blush for the price compared to Make Up For Ever and Bobbi Brown blushes.
