Best Nars Blushes for Fair Skin

Nars Blushes for Fair Skin
Nars is known for their blushes and with have such a large number to choose from (close to 30) it can be a little overwhelming to know where to start. I had decision anxiety in Sephora when I bought my first one! I thought I’d share which Nars blushes I really like and that I think work well on fair skin.

Nars blushes for fair skin: Orgasm, Deep Throat, Amour, & Madly

Nars blushes for fair skin (clockwise from top left): Orgasm, Deep Throat, Madly, & Amour

Orgasm: I know that everyone has probably already heard of Orgasm blush, but it really is the prettiest shade. Orgasm was the first Nars blush I ever bought, probably about 10 years ago now, and I have hit pan and repurchased it several times since then. Whenever I wear it, I always get complimented on my “complexion” (Spoiler alert: Its the blush!)

Deep Throat: Rude name aside, this is also a great blush. Orgasm is a peachy pink with a golden shimmer. Deep Throat is slightly more pink with less shimmer. When I’m not feeling so shimmery and want something more subtle, I will pick Deep Throat over Orgasm.

Madly: This blush was actually recommended by a Sephora SA and is one of those shades you might overlook in the pan. A pinky-brown nude, it has a hint of golden shimmer similar to Orgasm. Its often described as “peachy” but I don’t get much peach on my skin tone (which has very strong pink undertones). It’s in the same ballpark as Cargo Tonga or MAC Prism, neutral and subtle.

Amour: I got this one after watching gossmakeupartist’s video How to Pick the Right Blusher for Your Skin Tone. Although it looks intense, this deep reddish pink sheers out to give fair skin a sun-kissed or a been-out-in-the-cold look. Its one of my favourite blushes for fall.

Swatches: Orgasm, Deep Throat, Amour, Madly
