Do you have Sex Appeal?

Now, if you follow me on twitter I'm sure you'll have noticed that I have been extremely excited about a certain package from Nars and it arrived today! I ordered 2 products the first of which I shall show you now.

It was a bit of a blind purchase as I was intending to buy "Deep Throat" (oh Nars...) however it was sold out both on the Nars Website and ASOS so I purchased this one instead as it's just so pretty and I liked the look of it from the (few) online swatches I managed to find.
The blush is a matte peach with a hint of pink, it's quite chalky and extremely pale. It's a buildable colour, by no means sheer however I think this blush would only be suitable for those with pale skin (I for example am NC15 and it gives me a subtle glow). This is definitely a natural glow-y blush, something which makes you look healthy and radiant rather than providing you with a stand-out look.
I'm not sure if you can even see the swatch, it's such a pale blush that it was incredibly hard to capture on camera (I took about 20 pictures and this was the best of the bunch!)
Please excuse the disgrace that is my eyebrows :(
As you can see the blush translates a lot better on my face, the picture was taken with flash in order to try and give you a better idea of how it looks. I'm happy I bought this blush as it makes me look glow-y and healthy, something which isn't so easy when you're as pale as me! It's also the perfect blush for when you're doing a very stand out smokey eye or something similar as it's effect is extremely subtle. 
This blush costs £20.50 however if you buy Nars cosmetics of ASOS you're eligible to 10% student discount with a valid NUS card.
