L’Oreal blushes don’t really seem to get much love in the beauty world. I never hear anyone talking about them. They’re not new or exciting looking. I usually pass by them. Well, start raving about this blush because it is an amazing, cheap drugstore dupe for Nars Madly blush!
L’Oreal True Match Blush in Barely Blushing (W3-4)!!!
I’m not sure what prompted me to stoop down to the very bottom of the L’Oreal shelves at Target, but am I glad I did! The colors in the pan look nearly identical. The L’Oreal looks a smidge darker and warmer and rosier.
The L’Oreal blush also has good pigmentation, though not as good as the Nars. It does seem to have more of a sheen than Madly as you can see in the swatches below. I think this will translate as a subtle glow on your skin. I don’t see any shimmer or glitter in the L’Oreal blush.
When swatched, the L’Oreal came out just a hair lighter and warmer in shade in my eyes, which is surprising because in the pan, it looked darker. The Nars is more muted in both color and sheen.
On the face, I think this is definitely a fantastic cheap drugstore dupe for Nars Madly. You will get the same beautiful, healthy effect at a fraction of the cost! I got mine for $8.99 at Target. 😀 Check it out if you want Nars Madly but do not want to spend a buttload of money!
