Wearing NARS Miss Liberty Highlighting Blush on my cheeks and drinking a pumpkin chai latte!
Let’s band together, fellow makeup revolutionaries, and declare our freedom from big chunks of glitter! — because we, the blush lovers of the world, have a right to life, liberty and the pursuit of a subtle glow.
And this year, victory is ours! Demure, shimmery cheeks are just a NARS Miss Liberty Highlighting Blush ($27) away. After you don a few layers of this sheer, shimmery peach, don’t be surprised if you suddenly feel the urge to raise your fist, power-to-the-people style. I did (and then quickly lowered it when I remembered how long it’s been since I shaved my pits, whoops!).
Miss Liberty, a member of the NARS holiday collection corps, calls attention to cheeks without shouting. A warm peach speckled with tiny pieces of silver glitter, it beautifully balances both color and shimmer.
It’s one of those colors that just makes me feel alive, and I think it’s a perfect shade for a soft cheek glow to wear with smokey eyes and/or dark lips.
AVAILABILITY: Coming soon to NARS counters, and available now online

UPDATE 10/18/11, 21:15PM: I’m happy to report that Operation Pumpkin Chai Latte was a success.
I popped over to Starbucks on my lunch break today and ordered myself a soy pumpkin chai latte, which, I guess, is actually a pretty common request, according to the barista who helped me. She also said that it’s her BFF’s favorite Starbucks drink.
Lo and behold, it tasted like pumpkin pie in a cup! Which is good because I love pumpkin pie. So good, in fact, that I plan to get another one tomorrow.
