Unlocking the Vault: NARS Taj Mahal

Monday, August 23, 2010

NARS Taj Mahal is a unique shade in the world of blushes, where colour, texture and finish leaves beauty lovers spoilt for choice. A gorgeous, burnt orange with shimmer, this gives cheeks an amazing sun kissed glow and really warms up my complexion. You don't need to go crazy with lip colour when wearing this powder blush, let your cheeks do the talking. 

NARS blushes aren't cheap, but their quality is renown and Taj Mahal is no exception. It blends well and lasts well once applied.



It looks intimidating in the pan, but I think Taj Mahal is extremely wearable. This particular NARS shade is extremely pigmented, so you need to build up colour slowly.Warm toned, tanned and dark skinned beauties can wear this with ease, but paler skinned ladies will need to apply this with an even lighter hand to avoid a disaster. It doubles up as a great eye shadow too!

Mehak said...

thats a gorgeous colour. Wonder why they named in Taj Mahal though. Taj Mahal in India is renowned to be sparkling white and has absolutely nothing to do with that colour !!
