When hearing NARS Liberte, one can't help but resurrect "Liberté, Égalité, Fraternité" (Liberty, Equality, Fraternity), the tripartite French motto with origins in the French revolution. LIberty is personified in Eugène Delacroix's painting 'La Liberté Guidant Le Peuple' (Liberty Leading the People, read more about it here). I like to indulge in a little imagination and imagine that NARS Liberte is the color of well worn flag red.

NARS Liberte blush is a pigmented matte burnished orange. When compared with the crayon orange swatch of MAC Optimistic Orange Cremeblend blush, you can see that NARS Liberte is considerably more terracotta and less juicy in character. I've compared Liberte to NARS Deep Throat. You can see how much more dramatic it is when compared to the delicate pinky peach of Deep Throat.
Oranges made quite an impact this summer, and I can see a color like NARS Liberte being able to drift well into pumpkin season. I'm happy to finally have this in my collection. Thanks for reading! Do you have any favorite orange blushes in your collection? Did you have a chance to try NARS Ramatuelle this summer 2012? Which products are you looking forward to in the Fall 2012 collection?
