Brown and Blushin’ Series: NARS Dolce Vita

Fine. I’ll admit it. I really don’t need to purchase any more blushes. You hear that, Ma?

But a girl has to spoil herself every now and then. I absolutely love NARS; especially their blushes. Highly pigmented, long-lasting, build-able…..truly the elite of blushes in my opinion.

Check out one of NARS newest blushes:

Dolce Vita
(I’m sorry, but who else likes that name?
I’m naming my first daughter that? LOL! j/k)

As a matte, NARS describes this lovely color as a “dusty rose”. After only one swatch it gives me such a beautiful “tint”.
And of course I pulled out my favorite MAC brush; Miss. 187.

(Why did it take me 28 years to take this picture
so that I ended up in the mirror. HA!)

It’s fabulouso, chicas! But wait–don’t spaz out if aren’t ready to splurge $25 on a blush. L’Oreal HIP has these darling Blendable Creme blushes. I found that Dolce Vita is almost identical to Blushing.

I would say that Blushing is a tad bit darker but a great deal if you can catch L’Oreal HIP on a BOGO sale at your nearest drug store.

Looooves it! What is your favorite blush at the moment? Any ones you got your eyes on? Tell me, mon!

  • Seymone

    thank u for this post sis. i was on the fence about dolce vita now i know to scoop it up next time at sephora’s

  • mayaari

    you just saved me 20-some dollars; dolce vita looks lovely but I’m glad I already have blushing!

  • rmcandlelight

    Looking good girl. I think I have the loreal blush (have to check my stash). My wish list for Nars blushes are Taj mahal, crazed, exhibit A, Toaos & lovejoy.

    Are you going to do a video to show us the comparison maybe one cheek with the nars blush and the other cheek with loreal? Love ya.

  • French Pretty

    I’ve been searching for a cream blush, and the Loreal one is gorgeous.

    Great post! Thx.

    and my fave of the Moment is MAC’s plum de bois


    i’m loving the dolce vita. i’ve tried many blushes and my favorite is still rimmel’s peach. it’s great on brown skin and there’s a bit of shimmer to it, plus it’s cheap!

  • gio

  • Danyelle

    ’till next time…

  • Erica


  • Kamika

    The Nars looks lovely on you! We girls of color can wear just about everything.

    I need to go on a diet with blushes, I ain’t got that much cheek (on my face that is). LOL

    Right now I’m really loving DuWop’s Cheek Venom in Diamondback.

  • Kristin

    Oh wow that’s beautiful!!!! I have JUST started wearing blush, and I’m currently using Buff by MAC. Its pretty light, and takes a but much to achieve a lot of color… but its nice. I want to try this one!

  • rocketqueen

    That suits you SO well! My fave atm has to be MAC Blooming which gives the most lovely romantic rose feeling to my cheeks. LE of course…d’oh!

    And I posted my Political FOTD! Such a great initiative, you two!

  • Fashion’s Darling

    omg blush!!! seriously addicted..though I must say my go to is Crimson by Lorac….LOVE!

    Though Dolce Vita (I too love that name lol) is cute I’m slightly on the broke side so Blushing is looking mighty fine right now! lol
