Here comes the second blush to be introduced in the A-Blush-A-Day project Day 2 - NARS Penny Lane. I swapped this blush from Stellar. Penny Lane is a blush in cream texture and is a nude colored blush. On my NC25 skin, it looks flatteringly natural and makes my cheeks looks like they are naturally flushed without the artificial pinks and oranges.
"每日一胭脂"系列的第二天介紹NARS色膏狀胭脂Penny Lane. 我從Stellar手中獲得它的, 是cream狀的裸色系胭脂. 在我NC25的皮膚上用了這個, 效果非常自然, 不造作.
As you can probably see, a huge dip is forming in the pan, can you tell I am looking forward to the day this blush hit pan?! :D
這個胭脂已經開始有用'凹' 的情況出現了, 你知我有多期待用完它嘛 :D?
See how natural-looking this is when swatched on the arm?
Applied on cheeks:
Applied on cheeks:
Intensity: The color itself is suitable for fairer skins, hence I'd recommend if you're NC25 or paler. I need to swipe 3-4 times in order for this to show up nicely, despite the quick dip forming (since you need a few swipes of it to show up), I am loving the shade itself.
Finish: Cream, with shimmer
Value: $27 USD (5.5 g)
Lasting power: Starts to fades after 4 hours, but cheeks still looking naturally flushed. You can't go wrong with applying more of this I'd say.
Overall thoughts: At first I didn't like this blush but then I grew to like it more and more, precisely because of the natural flush it gave to my cheeks. I love Penny Lane on days when I am not feeling bold or if I have some formal occasions to attend. Wish it would have be more long-lasting though! If you don't want to look too made-up or kawaii-doll-pink, Penny Lane is definitely the choice. I would repurchase if I ever run out of this.
Have you tried NARS Penny Lane? What do you think of their cream blush formula?
上色度: 比較適合淺色皮膚, 如果你是NC25或更淺色的話, 這就值得試試了. 我塗了3-4層才顯色. 雖然每次要塗幾層才出色 (令到個胭脂有個'凹'位 = 快要用完), 但我還是很喜歡這裸色系的顏色作胭脂.
效果: 膏狀, 有輕微閃粉, 不太察覺的
價錢: $27 USD (5.5 g)
持久度: 4-5小時之後開始淡色/脫色, 但看下去面色仍是很自然, 我覺得多塗一點也不會出錯的啦
總評: 起初對Penny Lane的上色度甚有保留, 但最後都喜歡了它夠自然, 最喜歡在formal場合使用它. 我只希望它的顏色會更持久吧, 如果你不喜歡太可愛系的粉紅色, Penny Lane一定適合你. 他朝有日, 我用掉它時, 一定會回購!
What is A-Blush-A-Day (ABAD) Project?
Project ABAD was started by Elaine, Jolyn and I. On each day, each of us will present a different blush (old or new) we used each day (so that's 3 x 30 = 90 blushes), with swatches done either on face or on hand, and a short review. For my list of 30 blushes to be used in this project, click here. Don't forget to head to Elaine's andJolyn's blogs for daily blush surprises!
