I hate to give any NARS blush a mediocre review, but having a great deal of them, I have to say, that this one is probably my least favourite.
My gripe is mostly with the colour. It's a fairly ordinary pink. With chunks of glitter.
Apart from that, the quality of the product is good, like all NARS blushes. Goes on quite nicely and lasts a decent amount of time.
HG status! I've been using Angelika for a few years now. I first got into NARS blush with the famous Orgasm, which I also love, but I wanted something more vibrant. A woman at Sephora suggested Angelika and even said mixing the two works well (haven't tried it).
But anyway, so I purchased it and fell in love. It looks intimidating in the case, but it transfers so well onto my fair cheeks. A little goes a long way. Will purchase again and again.
I've been wanting this color for so long, and I finally got it as a gift from my sister a couple months ago. This color is THE perfect baby pink. People comment how you can't see the glitter particles on your face, but for me I can see it. However, it doesn't make you look tacky or like a disco ball, but it is just a pretty shimmery color on your face. Highly pigmented and overall just a fantastic blush. If it weren't for the price tag I would buy many more NARS blushes.
Obsessed. HG status. It's a gorgeous cool cotton candy pink with glitter. The glitter doesn't transfer to your cheeks at all so you do not look like a crazy disco ball when you wear it. I have very light nc15 skin and this blush looks perfect on me. I've had it for about a year and I wear it every day with no visible dent in the product at all! Only downside is the packaging completely broke on me and the mirrored top is detached from the bottom so i have to completely remove the top when I put this on.
I actually meant to pick up a different color but accidently ended up with this. When I first opened it I was horrified by the crazy sparkles and glitter. I couldn't imagine how I'd ever be able to pull it off. But I'm so glad I decided to keep it and try it! The sparkles don't end up on your cheeks the way they look in the pan. It's a pretty bright pink and the "glitter" shows up as a subtle glow. Like all Nars blushes it's SUPER pigmented, and I can't imagine ever running out of it because a little goes such a long way, but I would definitely repurchase. It's blushes like this that help me embrace my paleness. Although I'm sure it would look great on most skin tones.
Candy colored pink full of sparkles. The sparkles do not end up on your cheeks though. As always with NARS it's long lasting, pigmented, and I love the sleek black compact.
Im a huge fan of Nars blushes but I never really thought about this blush as I felt it would only suit fair or pale complexions the best. I was inspired after I saw temptalia's review and realised how beautiful it looked on her skin tone. So I decided to buy it and was so impressed. It look so great on my nc30-35 skin. It applies beautifully and goes on soft but buildable. In the pan, its soft baby pink with silver sparkles but the sparkles don't transfer on to the face. I can't say enough good things about this blush and it will suit a lot more skin tones that first impressions.
This is a color that I never would have given a second look due to all its sparkliness which i normally avoid in a blush. However it is in my joie de vivre palette and I decided to try it out the other day because I wear gaiety almost daily and i wanted a change. I was so surprised in the best way how this blush looked on me. First of all no sparkliness at all- it must have come off in the air as i applied it with my mac 187 brush. Second it looked so natural and flattering and I didnt have to blend much at all. Wow- Im so impressed with this color and will be wearing it alot from now on! I am not good at describing the nuances of colors so id have to say to me it looks like a dusty cool pink and leave it at that. If I ever use it up in this palette I probably will buy it individually.
This blush is pretty, but to be honest it's nothing special. ELF has a blush in its studio line called Fuschia Fusion that is essentially the same, except even more pigmented. I definitely won't be repurchasing this for $28 when I can get a dupe for only $3 !
What caught my eye in this blush was the sparkle!! I was in Nordstrom, and saw something glittering like mad at me, like a diamond, and realized it was this blush!! I am a shimmer/glitter addict, so i had to have it. What I love thou, is that when you wear this blush, you don't really see any glitter, just a nice pink flush on your cheeks. This is verrrry pretty IMO. I am pretty sure that Elf has a dupe for it called Fushia Fusion (glitter and all), and I discovered this when i got my Nars one home, opened my stash, and happened to pick up my ELF one. I could not see a difference.
