It's that time of the year again, when new and beautiful summer collections grace the counters at our favourite beauty stores. One of the collections that had caught my eye from the start was the new collaboration between NARS & Pierre Hardy, featuring 6 nail polish duos and two blushes. Being the blush addict that I am, I fell in love with the photos of the collection and made it my mission to get my hands on the Boys Don't Cry blush.
Pierre Hardy is a French designer known best for his gorgeous shoe designs. His latest shoe collection for Summer 2013 featuring bright colours & geometric designs inspired the mini-collection for NARS.

- Natural, healthy-looking finish that immediately enlivens the complexion
- Silky texture
- Micronized powder ensures soft, blendable applications"
Boys Don't Cry is described as a bright "pink grapefruit" shade that is embossed with a golden geometric over spray that Pierre Hardy is known for. The over spray begins to fade after the initial swatch and will completely disappear after a few uses, leaving a matte bold coral-red.
The blush is extremely pigmented and therefore you need to have a very light hand when applying it, meaning I will not be hitting pan on this blush anytime soon. Luckily this blush was super easy to blend and therefore left a lovely bright pop to my cheeks without leaving me looking like a drag queen. I found that it really brightened my complexion and would look gorgeous against all skin tones, especially those with darker skin tones.

I am so in love with this blush and cannot recommend it enough. It is definitely more suited for those who are addicted to blush like myself. Have you checked out the NARS x Pierre Hardy mini-collection? What collection are you most excited for this season?
