Anyone can wear Taos. Yup, I said it. ANYONE. From the darkest to the lightest, warm, cool or neutral undertones… You can pull it off. It’s definitely universally flattering.
NARS Taos is a rosy red with coral undertones and golden shimmer. It’s super pigmented and all you need is one swipe with a light hand.
Applies super smooth, blends well and lasts all day. Easily over applied so it’s best to just dab your brush on the pan and build it up as necessary. Less is more. A must have for the brown skinned beauties. Don’t ask questions just go get it, you won’t regret it!
NARS Blush retails for $28. The only close dupes that I know for Taos is MAC Ambering Rose and MAC Merrily, which has been discontinued.

They are very similar but Ambering Rose has more gold shimmer in it, giving it a more reddish bronze appearance.
Other possible dupes are Wet n’ Wild Berry Color Icon Blush in Berry Shimmer and La Femme Desert Rose Blush. If you know of any dupes feel free to leave it in the comments. I will also add a dupe list as I find them.
