NARS Unlawful Blush Is My Blush Pick For Fall

You all know I’m not a huge NARS fan. But, I do like their blushes! Although, I only have four of them. Only four hahaha. 😛

NARS Unlawful Blush was the only thing that called to me from the NARS Night Caller Fall 2014 Collection. And you’re probably not in the least surprised about that, hey?

I mean look at it! It’s an amber pink with silver micro-glitter. Yeah. There’s glitter in that blush folks. Kind of a LOT of it too.

Swatchy Time!

But I can forgive all that glitter because HELLO NURSE. Look at that colour! NARS Unlawful Blush is a terracotta rose that has some pink in there too. I can honestly say I have nothing like it in my blush collection. And when I say that, it’s pretty much true because Blush Fiends just know when they see a new and unique colour. We have BSS- Blush Spidey Sense. And my BSS was just a tingling when I saw it!

NARS Unlawful Blush is my kind of blush! I love when I can make a blush the focus of my look. The colour is so amazing  that I feel I don’t need much more on my face. Cheeks are front and centre when wearing it! Now everybody keeps saying that you can’t see the silver micro-glitter unless you look really close up. And that’s true to some degree, although upon inspection in the sun you can see the glitters. They are really small though, but they’re there. Not as obnoxious and huge glitter particles as Super Orgasm, which has to be one of the ugliest blushes I’ve ever seen. You can get rid of most of the tiny silver glitter in NARS Unlawful Blush by tapping your brush, or use a bigger fluffier blush brush when applying it.

NARS Unlawful Blush is my fall blush pick! No other blush has made my BSS go off. Yet. It’s only August 4, so most of the fall collections are just starting to pop up on counters here in Canada.

Happy Civic Holiday to my fellow Canadians! I hope you all had a nice long weekend! It also means we’re in the last home stretch of summer though. And I’ve only got 19 days until we leave for the road trip to Marky’s college… and she STILL hasn’t gone through her room to decide what to take with her. SIGH.

Any fall blushes set off your BSS that I should look into? Let me know! Also, what’s the ugliest blush you’ve ever seen? Another one that comes to mind actually is by NARS as well, Liberté. Didn’t like that shade at all!

  • LOL NARS monkey? LOL

    Unlawful makes you look so radiant, Tracy! I’m really loving it! I don’t know how well I’ll get along with a glittery blush though. I am a bit of a shimmer-phobe when it comes to face products. I’ll have to wait till I can actually swatch it to make up my mind!

    • Yeah Francois The NARS monkey is on every NARS post I write!

      Thanks Sunny! It’s really not so bad once it’s on your cheeks!

  • This is an amazing color and you look amazing wearing it!
    I just know this is not the very best color on me, but I still want to get it because it is so unique. I don’t even mind the glitters. Pretty! *_*

  • Hahaha, Super Orgasm really is ugly 😛 I like terracotta colors! I was just thinking the other day that I don’t know why I bother with other colors…warm reds are so flattering on me 😛

  • Gah, Unlawful is a total win on another lovely lady! I bought Hourglass Femme Rouge Velvet in Fawn this morning. I hope it’s the lipstick match for this blush. If not, I’ll be back at the swatching. Me needs the precious color!

  • LOL, I completely agree about Super Orgasm. As for unlawful, it looks like it was made for you 🙂

  • Hi Tracy,

    So happy to see swatches of Unlawful! It looks gorgeous on you! 🙂

  • Hello, nurse, indeed! This is so lovely on you! Definitely a unique shade, but still quite wearable. This blush fiend will be checking it out for sure 🙂

  • Liz

    Oooh, this one is pretty! I also think Super O was one of the ugliest blushes of all time. It’s difficult to think of something that can rival its awfulness, LOL. I haven’t had a BSS in a while and it’s starting to get me down, hahaha.

    • LOL hahaha we need to get you a BSS!
      And right? Yeah it’s hard to think of something as ugly, but I’ll think of something for sure!

  • Lily

    NICE! I don’t have this shade either… it looks like you ran in the sun and got that really healthy flush. Love it 🙂

  • It’s such a beautiful shade on you! The silver sheen really takes this already unique shade to another level.

  • Emma Bovary

    That does look like a pretty unique shade – even though I have that big blush palette from Nars, I just never seem to reach for their blushes and I’m not sure why. Distracted by my other blush loves I suppose. Glad you have found a new shade to love 🙂

    • Yeah, I’m the same I think! I forget about them, but when this whole makeup addiction started I was in LOVE with NARS blush that’s for sure!

  • You cracked me up on that Blush Spidey Sense but yeah, I know what you mean. LOL
    I don’t like Super Orgasm too. It’s too glittery for me.

    • BSS is totally real dude! This is really well done glitter. Can’t believe I’m saying that, but it’s true!

  • Definitely your kind of blush! You look amazing! Not mine though… It would just make me look like a discoball.


    you look stunning in this! i need to swatch it!!

  • Ahhh so good! That shade is beyond gorgeous! I laughed at BSS. I was like, “bull sh*t sh*t”??? lol you look awesome Tracy.

  • Gorgeous!! Glad to know it isn’t full or Orgasm glitter shards of terrible!

  • I giggled at your “only have 4” comment! I’ve yet to buy my first!

  • Toya

    I’m leery of the sparklies, but DAMN if that blush isn’t effing HAWT on you Tracy!! (and side note: WTF why does my computer always auto-correct everything I type! It’s LEERY not leering, SPARKLIES not sparkles, and EFFING not offing. URGH.) I digress. Seriously, that kind of blush is my JAM, I also love making blush the highlight of my look, and that does it perfectly! I’ll have to swatch the crap out of it now and see if it comes home with me, too! I love fall collections but I am on such a boring hardly-buy-any-pretties train lately that I keep talking myself out of getting anything. I should go on a spree soon I think, don’t you?? 😉

    • My computer does that too. Stoopid MACS LOL!
      DUDE. On you? The pink will really come out I think! You need to test it out baby!

  • BSS!!! +10!!! Cracking up! I’m also kind of crying with giggles at your comments on Super Orgasm!! Holy hell you are hilarity! This blush is stunning. And my BSS is indicating that *I* need it b/c I have nothing like it in my stash either! All points go to Tracy today! First Cannes Crush, now this?! My wish list grows ever plumper, while my wallet shrinks/shrieks!

    • :D:D Making you laugh? Is the BEST. Because your writing has me in STITCHES every time girl! Oh yeah, this you need for SURE.
