NARS Nordstrom Exclusive Pop Goes the Easel Collection launched recently. I grabbed Misconduct blush thinking it was the perfect dusty nude pink. This collection is limited edition. Details per Nordstrom:
The ultimate authority on blush, NARS offers the industry’s most iconic shades for your cheeks to give them natural, healthy-looking color that immediately enlivens your complexion. A light application of even the highest-intensity hues delivers a natural looking flush. Each blush has a silky texture and is made from micronized powder to ensure soft, blendable application.
The packaging and price is the same as the regular blushes. Misconduct is not really the dusty pink nude I was thinking it is. It’s more a sheer plummy pink with a soft golden sheen. It looks warm and nude in the pan, but swatches cooler and more plum. Misconduct is sheer compared to a lot of NARS blushes. It kind of reminded me of a sheer Oasis or something similar.
The texture was not like the normal NARS blushes I’m used to, it was very dry and hard. It’s patchy when swatching but with a brush it looked fine on. It was hard to get a lot of pigment on the brush. You definitely need a strong bristled, dense brush for this one. It was a huge disappointment for me due to the texture and shade being not what it appears in the pan. I much prefer Douceur or Sexual Content to this one.
