So in my last haul, I mentioned that I got 3 new NARS blushes in Exhibit A, Sin and Lovejoy. Assuming you won’t mind, I’ll be adding these as a continuation of my NARS blush series from a few weeks ago. :] So here is Part 6 of the now 8 part series of my NARS blush reviews.
I’ve been eyeing NARS Exhibit A, a matte red blush, for a couple years now but have never had the guts to get it. It is by far the most intimidating, crazy-looking blush in the NARS blush collection. But once applied correctly, it gives you a beautiful natural flush.
Look at how incredibly red it looks in the pan!
But don’t run away- I promise I won’t end up looking like a clown :]
A close up- yup, still looking pretty scary
NARS Exhibit A swatch
This is a relatively heavy swatch so that you can get a good look at the shade
And finally applied on my own cheeks
See? Not so scary right? Looks pretty natural
Hair up? Hair down? Take your pick.
NARS Exhibit A is super pigmented like many of their other blushes. You only need to dip your brush into the pan ONCE then blend blend blend for a natural look. If you feel like you want a bit more pigment, dip your brush again just once. For how little pigment you need for amazing color payoff, Exhibit A is going to last me a lifetime.
I think you could wear this blush in so many different ways. You can dress it up with a matching red lipstick. I’m wearing MAC Viva Glam Cyndi in these photos. Or you can totally dress it down by keeping eyes and lips more natural for an “I just ran through a field of wildflowers” flush. You could wear this year round as well but I think it’ll look especially beautiful during the Winter and holiday season.
I’m sure NARS Exhibit A won’t become one of my go-to blushes because it requires more blending and care than NARS Madly or NARS Orgasm. Regardless, I’m really happy that I have this in my blush collection and definitely don’t own a NARS Exhibit A dupe. To me it’s one of a kind and I’ll be getting good wear out of it for sure.
