Furthering the Blush Review: NARS Exhibit A

It had to eventually get here. Since I'm attracted to impossibly bright blushes, in the pan anyway, and feel a call to them that is often only heard by others who have truly felt deep spiritual connection to a cheek colour, Exhibit A had to be on my list.


The blush is a bright heart-stopping tomato red without any shimmer. It's been known to cause sudden fleeing from make-up counters and perhaps a few tears or two. But if you overlook that and apply it sparingly with a fan or skunk brush, it is a beautiful blush. On my cheeks it goes on as a pretty tomtato red that looks great in the summer. It gives this summery warmed-by-the-sun look. I tried this in combination with bronzers but I've come to the conclusion that it's best used on its own.

The staying power of Exhibit A is exceptionally great. It stays on all day and can even withstand a sweaty jog. With a very light hand, this blush is a sun-warmed pop of colour on lighter skintones. But for those of us with darker skin, this ought to be one of the products we worship with chocolate and ice cream sacrifices (that would be eating them of course). It gives the most beautiful, natural, lit from within sun kissed glow to dark skin. Be warned, however, this blush really requires you to hone your skills. Too much of it looks like you're nursing a fever that if your life were a Bollywood movie, a sad song would play about your mysterious illness. To its credit, I doubt anyone would really ever finish up this blush since it's so very pigmented.

I've been wanting to give Exhibit A a whirl but the color is intimidating (an I consider myself open to color...lol). It looks so beautiful on you, I'm definately going to give it a try.

Hi Anu,
Can you do a tutorial on your eye-makeup with this look. It looks really good (the little I can see!). I've been trying to get that look for ages with no success.

Also, the blush looks very nice. I've been wanting a red one so I might give this a try.

Honestly, I'm not such a blush lover. Blush looks weird on me but brilliant on you. By the way, which l/g colour do you have on your lips? That's super volume! Very sexy!
