Blush my world - Nars - Cactus Flower

I have been needing to write a blog post about this blush for a long time but never got round to it. So here it is.

My thoughts 
I really do love this blush and have been wearing this throughout summer. Its a cream blush and is corally red shade with lots of shimmer. The texture is light compared to Bobbi Brown Calypso Coral which i think feel quite greasy when touching it however the problem goes when its applied. Cactus Flower does look scary in the pan, but once applied it gives a natural look. I think it is very complimenting on warm and cool skin tones but just be careful not to apply to much on cooler skin tones. Cactus Flower is quite pigmented but not as much compared to Calypso Coral.

Calypso Coral or Cactus Flower?
That is so hard for me to answer because I love both of these blushes. I would say go for Cactus flower if you want a subtle coral red colour. Or Calypso Coral is you want a true Coral pink shade with no shimmer. Or you could buy both, they are quite different to each other. I like to apply cream blushes with my fingers but you can apply it with a flat top brush or an angled contour blush.

Calypso Coral is priced at £19.00 and Cactus Flower at £20.50

    I love my MacBook and haven't encountered any problems as of yet *touch wood that I don't ever have to* but the scrolling, that sometimes annoys me, lol!
    What about for you?

    And I am so jealous! I've been eyeing Cactus Flower for the longest time but just haven't gotten around to purchasing it since I already have so many NARS blushes... ">.> lol! It's gorgeous. :)

    I hope all has been well. xxxxxxxxx
