So if you've ever read this blog before, you already know that I have a blush problem and in particular, cream blushes are a weakness of mine. This first step is admitting you have a problem, so there :P
In several of her videos, Audra has talked about the NARS Cream Blush in cactus flower. Cactus Flower is described by NARS as "delicate shimmering poppy".
It is a very red coral with a very fine gold microglitter that gives it a very glowy almost iridescent finish in the pan. On the cheeks the gold is much less noticeable but if you like matte blushes, you'll probably want to pass this one up.

The formula is very pigmented, just a light tap of my finger into the product is more than enough for one application. It does sheer out fairly easily and the color is very wearable by someone like myself who is on the pasty side of pale. The formula is very wet and has a lot of slip when first applied, but it dries down nicely.
I think this is one of my more favorite cream blush formulas. It is super pigmented, glides on so smoothly and then dries down nicely. I really love the subtle gold sheen from the microglitter - very reminiscent of their powder blush, Orgasm.
The NARS Cream Blushes contain 5.5 grams of product and retail for $28 wherever NARS is sold.
