Spend vs. Save : NARS Blush in Taos

Looking for a cheap red-hued blush?

Spend : NARS blush in Taos - Php 1,350
Save : Ever Bilena blush in Cheek Php 150

See the huge price difference? =)

Taos is a very pretty reddish-dark coral blush. When used with a stippling brush it gives me a nice warm flush! I prefer to use my Ecotools blush brush and gently TAP the brush once on the pan since its very pigmented. I think this blush will last me a LONG, LONG time!



They look almost the same on the pan, but see the difference when swatched.
Cheek is kinda pink compared to Taos, but when applied on my cheeks I really can't tell the difference =)


Swatches:
NARS Blush in Taos
Ever Bilena blush in Cheek

NARS! they really do have the best blushes, its not just the color, its the application, it goes on beautifully. i hate cheap blotchy blush. NARS rocks and it WILL last forever! Orgasm, Deep Throat and Sin are a must in every makeup artist's kit. :-)
