The NARS Angelika is one of the most treasured make-up items in my collection. First of all, its NARS and secondly the colour is gorgeous! This blush was my first ever NARS purchase and words can't describe how excited I was when I got it.
One of my best friends, Sara S, lives in America and she sends me all the lovely things that aren't available in Pakistan. This particular blush is one of those lovely things. It took us ages to decide between Angelika and Orgasm. Guess who won? Yes, Angelika!
It's a gorgeous blue-toned baby doll pink with silver specks of glitter. The silver glitter is what I love most about it. Don't be alarmed if glitter isn't your thing, it doesn't seem to be noticeable on the skin, because it seems like the glitter disappears between the brush to the cheek! Even though it looks like a pretty baby pink blush in the pan, don't let it fool you, it's super pigmented. You have to apply it with a light hand because other wise, you'll just end up looking like a china doll -which has happened to me the first few times.:) The color blends out easily even if you overdo it, though this is a shade that you can’t go too overboard with. It's suitable for all skin tones, but it's ideal for those with a lighter skin tone.
The rubbery packaging is like all NARS blushes, which I like, but the one minus is that the rubbery package gets dirty pretty quickly. You'd have to store it in it's original cardboard package to avoid this. I don't mind the rubbery packaging because its strong and protects the product inside. I also have NARS Orgasm and it's slipped from my hand so many times ( :( ) and surprisingly it's still in one piece.
NARS is a high end brand so the prices also are in the higher end. I paid 27$ for it and I personally think it was worth of every penny. If you, like me, love girly, pretty, cool, cotton candy pink on your cheeks you will love this. This is the perfect pink for a girl to have in her makeup bag (or a basket in my case).
Any idea if NARS is available in Lahore?
