Review: Nars Steven Klein Dual Intensity Blush in Vengeful


I'm the first to admit that I have a serious makeup problem.  Contouring? Sharpen my cheekbones for the gods, please.  Strobing? Like a rave.  Matte Lips? I thrive in the absence of shine. 

So when I saw this new blush combo from Nars, I knew I had to try it.  I was not at all disappointed. 

The blush is creamy and blendable. It works its way perfectly into my cut contour, and it gives such a gorgeous, rich burgundy color to the cheek.  The staying power is on fleek, so much so that I can complete a hard workout and still look like I was gently caressed in the upper face area by an archangel. 

This blush is, simply and eloquently put, the shit.

Couple it with the highlighter and it is UNSTOPPABLE.  This highlighter is the most perfect highlight to ever grace my lowly cheekbones.  I have a tendency to go 0 to 100 on my strobing game, but this highlight will blend back down from oil slick to ethereal glow with a couple of swipes from the ole' kabuki.

Now is this duo expensive? Well, duh.  It's Nars. $45.00 at Sephora.  But is it worth it? Every penny.  My only lingering question is.....who da eff is Steven Klein?
