NARS Taj Mahal: The Brown Skinned Beauty's Dream Blush

NARS is notorious for making extremely pigmented blushes with names that, well actually make you blush. Ever complain that a blush doesn’t show up on your skin because it is not pigmented enough? Well you will never have that problem with Taj Mahal…

"NARS Taj Mahal"

Taj Mahal is a burnt orange with a golden sheen. A brown girl’s dream blush, especially if you have warm undertones. Don’t worry though, Taj Mahal can be worn by any complexion it’s just all about the application.


Can be applied lightly as a highlighter to the cheekbones or all over the cheeks for a nice glow, used as a bronzer, or can be applied full on for true to pan color. I suggest building up the color layer by layer using a light hand though… you do not want to over apply this. Taj Mahal is smooth like butter and blends well, not dry or patchy at all.
