Nabi Blushes: a review.

Pin It now!

--> Roughly over a month ago, my spouse and I went to downtown to walk around and view what some stores had to offer. By cheer and I mean CHEER luck, I happen to quickly see a store that had Nabi goodies. And of course, I needed to go in and see what else I had. Would you believe the store offered Nabi goodies and eyelashes for one dollar?!? I know right! After looking at all their blushes, I picked 3 colors that I did not personally owned. I chose: Almond, Hot Peach and Orange.

Nabi Blush in Almond, Hot Peach and Orange

The texture on Almond is a creamy matte, both Hot Peach and Orange were slightly on the satin side (more like 80%matte and 20%satin ~if this makes any sense to you). The color Almond is a mix between Chocolate and Pink Rose. A perfect shade for contouring or even as an eyeshadow. Hot Peach and Orange are shades that offer a mix of peach and pink. Hot Peach is a perfect slightly bright pink-peach color that is extremely flattering. Orange, on the other hand, is a slightly darker peachy-pink color, again very flattering color. What is wonderful about these blushes is that they are not sheer at all. In fact these colors are potent and even build-able. These blushes beats covergirl blushes hands down as far color saturation is concerned. And even as the day progresses this color won't oxidize that much.

On the downside, this brand is not available online for purchase (as far as I know). A real shame since this brand has potential of raising the bar in terms of quality of cosmetics at the drugstore level. My advice? when you have a day to kill and you are tempted to go to a drugstore, give a shot in your local downtown area and see if any mom and pop biz offers Nabi.  This is by far, one of the best investments I have made. I am looking forward expanding my Nabi collection. What are your thoughts on Nabi?
