NARS Dual Intensity Blushes

A few months back, my friend and awesome youtube vlogger Serein Wu spoke so highly of the NARS dual intensity blushes!  Being the beauty junkie that i am, i certainly cannot resist such a great recommendation so i picked up my fist blush in the shade Craving. I've never been wow'd the way that i was with this blush! Holy amazingness!  Here's why... while you can wear these by simply swiping your brush and applying, you can actually wet these for major intensity! But before we get into that, lets chat brushes!  Serein really recommended the NARS Wet Dry  brush that is specifically made to use with these blushes. Since i didn't actually have that brush, i reached for my favorite IT Cosmetics brushes (this one and this one) and have to say, they did an amazing job! I think the key is to have a good, densely packed brush! Initially i used an evian spritz on my brushes but then switched over to MAC's Prep + Prime Fix It which makes everything more intense in general (you so need this, especially for shadows)! The color payoff was incredible!  Simply spray MAC's Fix It on your brush lightly, dab your brush on the blush, tap the brush on over the top of your hand to be sure you're not over applying (always better to build up your color versus over applying), then swipe across your cheeks for the most gorgeous color ever!!!  In fact, i was so blown away by how gorgeous this blush was that i added Frenzy to my collection!  Warning... these blushes are addicting!  Once you see just how gorgeous these apply, you'll want every.! I know i do!
