...A moment of silence for this wondrous yet now defunct product...
Now onto the younger, sexier (can it get any sexier?), PINKer, replacement
So how does this beautifully packaged & sinfully soft wannabe measure up?
Lets compare in chart-form (Descriptions from respective companies)
Okay, maybe Nuance doesn't really fit in here, but it's still nice to compare! :)
Swatch form in natural lighting w/o flash
And with flash in "indoor" lighting
I guess you could say that I am missing the "coral" part of the description - I do see the bright pink. As you can see, it is the HOT-PINKest of the batch, making it quite unique. (The yellow-toned lights in my bathroom definitely tone down the bright pinky color) I LOVE my NARS Deep Throat and this color probably is most similar to it - but with a little more pink. It also lacks the strong gold undertones of TheBalm's Hot Mama which makes it more versatile.
Side note: At Sephora, Parasol was the most popular color...only 2 more left on the shelf!
Comparison of blushes in pan form - Still looks like you get more product with the NARS blushes, but the oval compact is still so pretty & girly...
Final verdict: On cheeks!
Pretty pink flush! Not too overpowering at all if applied with a light hand...
♥ LOVE ♥
So yes, I think the purchase was worth every penny. I can see myself reaching for this blush multiple times!
