New to liquid blush? Try NARS Afterglow.

We’re all familiar with the craze over Rare Beauty Soft Pinch Liquid Blush for its pigmented, long wearing formula. But, if you’ve tried it before, I’m sure you quickly realized it’s not the most user-friendly formula, especially for those new to liquid blush. Liquid Blushes tend to always be more pigmented and not have a ton of playing time, but we have a new one great for liquid blush newbies: NARS Afterglow. This NARS Liquid Blush has a much more forgiving, sheer formula anyone can use.

Promises vs. Performance: The easiest liquid blush.

NARS Liquid Blush is a “blush with benefits.” Afterglow Liquid Blush promises 8 hours of hydration from sodium hyaluronate, vitamin E protection from environmental aggressors, and the appearance of healthy-looking skin thanks to vegan collagen. The formula is buildable from a natural flush to intense color. It’s lightweight and ultra-blendable for a non-streaky application that results in transfer resistant cheek color.

The best part about Afterglow NARS Liquid Blush is how easy it is to apply. It has more of a sheer formula that is forgiving and buildable. Start with a few dots and blend with a brush or beauty sponge, layering to build to your desired intensity. It has a non-streaky application that doesn’t exaggerate texture or pores. As far as longevity goes, it wears for 8+ hours without fading or looking splotchy. To increase wear time, set with your favorite powder blush and a setting spray.

How It Compares: NARS Liquid Blush is user friendly.

Compared to others, NARS Afterglow Liquid Blush isn’t quite as pigmented, which can be seen as a pro and a con. The pigment is buildable, but it doesn’t give immediate bold color payoff like Saie Beauty Dew Blush or Rare Beauty Soft Pinch. But, I still enjoy this NARS Liquid Blush. It has a stunning natural luminous finish that doesn’t exaggerate texture, pores, lines, etc. The application is incredibly easy because of its more sheer pigment, which means it’s great for both beginners and pro blush users.
