Passion for Peach: NARS Sex Appeal Powder Blush Swatches and Review

     I love peach, it brightens my complexion and gives me a girly glow, I feel so much more alive wearing it. I wear neutral eyes so much, like most girls, and I find that peach blushes and lipsticks look gorgeous paired with a brown eye. Anywho, this series will provide swatches and reviews (or quick reviews) on peach colored (or with a hint of peach) products I adore.

     It's been one week everyone! Long time no see, I spent today writing some essays and reading some books, just how I live my life now. But surprisingly, in the midst of my busy school life, I've committed myself to using my makeup, and I've done a full face of makeup everyday! (It's a full face, but not heavy.) So today, I'm going to write a blog pot as my break time. (: NARS Sex Appeal, anyone?

      NARS Sex Appeal is described as a light soft matte peach. Swatched, I definitely think the color description fits, but on my light medium skin tone, the color shows much more peachy and dark than in the pan. Although this is the case, I definitely do not recommend this blush for people darker than me because Sex Appeal may turn out ashy.
     My NARS blushes have no disappointed my at all (only thing is, Orgasm isn't like wtfthisisamazing to me). And Sex Appeal fulfills all the criteria I want to see in a good blush, especially when it is so expensive. The texture of this blush is smooth but not powdery, so I don't see excessive fallout from the pan.
     I swear that this blush like... color adjusts. From the finger swatches, you can see one swatch is lighter and one is darker, and I swear it's because the blush reacts with the oils of your skin or something. This results in the blush looking darker on my skin than in the pan. Last thing... this blush lasts well on my skin.

FOTD: Too much homework, so I must camera-whore.

     This week was my first week of school and I can already say that I won't have much time this year. Junior year means SATs, excessive amounts of homework, and also college pressure. I really wish I could forget all of my outside of school stresses because I feel like I could definitely handle all my school work at still get 8 hours of sleep. But since I can't just forget about my friends (oh, I have volleyball), I'll try harder... Haha. So please excuse me if you don't see a post from me for long periods of time. I'm spending my Labor Day weekend doing homework. All I have to do now is Political Economy and US History, which will take the rest of this day and maybe more. But yay, FOTD.
