NARS blushes are pricey but they'll last you a long time. A little goes a long way. I use Gina practically every day. I own several other NARS blushes in various shades and I love Gina because unlike a lot of NARS blushes, its not shimmery. I have a natural redness in my cheeks. Usually this is covered by foundation, but sometimes pink blushes make me look too red in the face. Gina is the perfect peach. I found Taj Mahal to be WAY too orange on my fair skin. Gina is just a delightful color that brightens up my whole face and makes me look alive.
When I first bought this blush, I had dark red hair and no matter how hard I tried I just could not get this colour to look good on me (NC30/C4 skin colour) so it was put in the drawer and forgotten about. Fast forward to half a year later, I now have medium/dark blonde hair after deciding to return to my real hair colour and annoyingly all the colours I used when I had red hair were not working for me. So I pulled Gina out thinking I may as well give it one last shot! Well it turned out to be the best thing I did as now the colour suits me perfectly! It is a very true peach colour, and doesnt pull pink or red on me at all. I think it gives me a lovely beachy/summery glow now! The texture is great, very easy to blend however this blush is very pigmented, so a light hand is needed. Nars blushes are well worth the money!
Too orange on my cheeks. Even with a light hand it just runs orange on me, not peach. Gilda is much better for my NC25 skintone. It's a matte blush, with incredible pigmentation. As you expect from NARS, the staying power in phenomenal. Had to give this to a friend, not flattering on me at all.
Nars Gina [First blush from Nars] is a gorgeous peachy warm color on my NC25 skin. I'm really glad this was a hit for me! I can lightly tap on a little which won't look too much with a smokey eye and then I could tap on a lot more if I want to look flourished (w/o the smokes). I must be careful because even though this comes on light, it is also easy to overdo on pigmentation and I could come off looking unnatural. Gina isn't that easy to find as some Sephora stores don't carry it. This is $36 CAN and well worth it. Ok, I was sort've slightly moved as pictures made the blush seem bigger as it is zoomed in and when I opened it, it seemed small but I realize since it is well pigmented, it would last for quite some time.
All in all, I adore this little rectangle filled peachy mattified goodness!
I have fair skin that tans extremely well. In the past, I have been wary of “apricot,” “coral,” or “peachy” shades looking orange on me. Gina, however, complements the natural warmth of my tanned skin instead of contrasting with it, despite NARS’ slightly scary description of it being “tangerine.” I usually pair it with NARS Laguna bronzer to make my skin look really luminous. I have had only positive experiences with NARS blushes (my other favourites are Orgasm, Deep Throat, and Outlaw); I find they have consistently great pigmentation and fine textures, lending themselves to easily buildable colour. With a light hand, Gina gives a natural-looking glow to fair skin. Gently layering on the colour will add intensity to those with darker skintones.
this is my fave NARS blush. It adds a pretty tangerine-ish flush on my face . :)
This was my first NARS blush & i've got to say the pigmentation is amazing, a little goes a long way. I've got fair skin (NW15 at MAC), & Gina just looks orange on me. I want to love this product so much, as it looks so beautiful swatched, but unfortunately it isn't for me. It will look beautiful on people with more tanned skin, as it may bring out the pink in it, but on me, it just looks orange. A high quality product & i do recommend it, but sadly, not for people with my skin tone. :( continued >>
I love peachy/orangey blushes. In the pan, it looked more pink than what I'd expected from seeing swatches and pictures online.. but on my cheeks it is a gorgeous peachy color with a tiny bit of pink.. not so much orange on me (which I don't mind). I'm warm toned, NC30-32 very yellow.. it looks fabulous! I use my Sigma angled contour brush to apply this
Out of my 10 Nars blushes that I own this is my absolute favorite! I reach for this so often this has become my everyday blush I definitely recommend this as a must have for everyone! It is the most gorgeous peach color and it instantly warms up my Nc45 skin, I think this could work for a range of skintones from light to dark. Don't be discourage to try this because of how pale it looks in pan it does not translate that way to the skin at all! This is my favorite nars blush and I will love it forever! This is the only blush out of all the ones I own thats evenly remotely close to hitting pan I would definitely repurchase and recommend this to everyone!
Love love love this blush. I have this blush along with a few others form NARS. Im AA and this is the perfect "glow" color for me. Its described as a true tangerine and thats accurate. Absolutely no chalkiness but it doesn't look orange either. NARS blushes have rarely let me down. The texture and pigmentation makes them very easy to work with. I would repurchase. Swatches in my profile.
