A few weeks ago I was in Melbourne for work, wasting time in the evening at Myer Bourke St Mall (how very smart that they're open till 9pm everyday!) and kept walking past Mecca Cosmetica, swatching Desire, and trying to convince myself I didn't need it. Then I remembered that I had a $20 Myer One gift voucher, technically making the blush only $29 and before I knew it this baby was mine.
I'm very much into matte blushes at the moment, and this is a lovely matte bright pink that's super pigmented (as is expected from NARS). In fact it's a little bit too pigmented, because the first time I used it I ended up looking like a clown and had to wipe off the excess with tissues before I looked decent enough to leave the house.

Blended lightly on the cheek, however, looks lovely and fresh
In comparison to my other matte pink blush, Illamasqua Hussy (reviewed originally HERE) Desire is definitely more cool toned.
This is a perfect winter pink I suppose, whereas Hussy is more of a summer pink if you know what I mean.
Have you tried any of these blushes before?
What is your favourite pink blush?
