The three blushes included in this range are Misconduct (pinkish peach), Peep Show (coral), and Threesome (pale pink).  All three colors are moderately pigmented, but I did find the pink-peach shade - Misconduct - a lot more difficult to swatch than the other two.  I have only tried testers, and the actual product might be easier to pick up using a brush.  Among the three, Peep Show seemed to perform best, while the other two blushes seemed a little more sheer on my skin.

Three new Sheer Pop Multiples are included in this range - Motu Tane (Pink), Navagio Beach (Gold), and Cote Basque (coral).  The formula feels quite light and easy to apply as a sheer wash, and the intensity can be built up if desired.  I amn't sure how well these would perform on the lips, but I quite like the idea of using these as cream blushes (they have a soft matte finish rather than a glossy sheen).   The gold highlighter shade - Navagio Beach - is a very soft, subtle highlighter that seems impossible to go overboard with.

Overall, the NARS Pop Goes the Easel collection is perfect if you are looking to add some bright pops of color to your spring/summer makeup routine.  The Sheer Pop Multiples would be my favorite, and I also liked Peep Show powder blush.
