It's no secret that I love Nars blushes! They are one of my all time favorite, and I added Almeria to my collection during the VIB sale.
This blush is part of their Holiday collection, so I am or sure if it's limited edition or not. If it is, pick it up while you can of its one you are interested in!!
The packaging is the same as all Nars blushes, but it has the detail that matches all of this years holiday collection on it! I mentioned in my haul post that I couldn't get a good picture of this because of lighting. I tried a few times and they all looked the same. This looks a lot darker/red toned in the picture than is does in person, but my swatches are accurate. I did look on Nars website for a better picture, but I did not think it met what the blush really looks like either.
I had no intention of getting this, or any blush at the VIB sale because I have so many. When I walked over to the Nars section I saw this and just swatched it out of curiosity because it was unlike any blush I own. I liked it, but I put it back and walked away. Then couldn't stop thinking about it LOL. The lady helping me actually put this on me when I went back to look at it again and I fell in love!
My overall thoughts
-I really do love this blush and I think it's making a great staple in my collection because I don't own anything like it.
-I use this with a very light hand because Nars blushes are super pigmented. And since this is on the darker side, I don't want clown cheeks on my pale skin.
-it's super blendable and it's a great shade for everyday wear!
-I really honestly think it's a shade that every skin tone can wear! It will definitely show up on darker skin tones, and looks great on lighter ones when used with a light hand!
Like I said before, I love Nars blushes already so I knew I would like this one a lot!
