NARS Holiday 2014 Collection “Laced with Edge” blush in “Almería” is described as a tan rose. This is a rather accurate description if you’re thinking of a tan, red rose. On my skin (NC30/NC35 in MAC foundations), it reads as a very warm-toned red blush with minimal shimmer. Think of having rosey (red) cheeks after a snowball fight with your best friends. The pigmentation is excellent as is the standard with NARS’ blushes. This shade may be a little bold for some but it is beautiful!
