I really like this blush....the color is perfect for me, gives me a nice bronzey/rosey color and the staying power is excellent. It has much better staying power than MAC blushes. I have no idea if I will ever run out of this, I have had it since December and wear it almost everyday and It still looks brand new. But when I do run out I will for sure buy it again.
This blush is beautiful, I'm amazed that it didn't occur to me to get it sooner. It is a slightly warm toned bronzed rose with golden shimmer and it is perfect for summer nights. Also, it is one of the few NARS blushes that I can apply with a normal blush brush without it looking "too much". Unlike other blushes with bronze tones (like Chanel's Rose Bronze JC), it didn't pull orange on me at all. Lovejoy would look gorgeous on anyone with warm toned skin, but I think it would also work on cooler ladies, as the warm tones wouldn't be overwhelming. Will definitely purchase again!
this is my HG blush! if i can only have one blush forever, this would be it. this is the blush that i can put on everyday with any m/u looks,from dramatic to natural. it makes my cheeks glowy & naturally flushed. never disappointed with this. it's a staple in my m/u collection.
i apply this with my MAC 168. this is the blush i reach the most of all the blushes i own.
this is like blush+bronzer in one= blonzer.
Pros: gorgeous & natural looking color,very pigmented, lasting power is good on the cheeks,great texture,nice shimmer,very blendable & it doesn't break out my sensitive & dry skin (eczema)..
Cons: i don't know if there's any..
Color: warm rose-bronze with shimmer..
Packaging: i really like NARS black compact,it even has a mirror.. very sturdy & slim.. easy to bring for travelling or just to bring for touch-up inside the purse..
Price: for $25 USD, i personally think it's reasonable for the quality.
Repurchase: yep, in a heartbeat! ♥
for reference: i'm NC35-37,dark brown eyes & hair. sensitive & dry skin.
This is a beautiful neutral rose shade that looks great on my fair skin. It wears well throughout the day. I do agree with others that the packaging tends to get smudgey and dirty looking, which is unfortunate, because other than that, I like the packaging. I got this in a duo with albatross, which is a yellowish white highlighter. It is way too shiny for my taste to use on my cheeks, but I use it as an eyeshadow highlighter.
I have to say, I love this blush. When I first saw this in the tester at sephora I was a little wary of this. Mostly because it was covered in fingerprints and there were chunks of glitter everywhere. When the MA applied this to my hand all I could see was glitter and a little bit of color. I don't know why I decided to buy it but I did. The first time I wore it out I caught my reflection in a mirror. O M G! It looked so beautiful. It really made my cheeks looked flushed and glowy without looking ridiculous. I could wear this blush with anything. It's a staple for me. I would buy this again and again, even if I could find a dupe. I don't know why but I just love the look and feel of NARS packaging....makes me seem important.
I kept putting off getting this blush since I already owned MAC X-rocks which is a supposed "dupe". However, now that I finally caved and have NARS lovejoy, I find that this is not anything like x-rocks imo. I personally prefer this to MAC x-rocks, which I found to be rather sheer. As with almost all NARS products, lovejoy is top notch quality..soft, easy to blend, and highly pigmented. Color wise, I found MAC x-rocks to be more brown with rose. NARS lovejoy however seems more bronzed rose, which looks lovely on my ruddy cheeks and MAC NC30-35 skin tone. In the pan lovejoy looks to have tons of shimmer, however, once applied, it all sort of buffs out and no shimmer is to be seen. NOTE** Be careful not to over apply as this is very pigmented and too much will make you look got wind-burned! :X
Just a quick review, iam an N50 mac foudation shade and i loves this blush. You have to be careful with blush when you have dark skin tones cuz you can end up looking like a clown, but this blush is soooo beautiful and it makes me look like iam blushing rather than someone slapped me upside my head lol.
I just added this blush to my NARS collection and it is an absolutely must have for bronze or Tan skin types with yellow undertones. I rate this blush right up there with Taj Mahal and Taos for darker skin divas. This brings my NC44/45 skin tone to life and adds radiance and warmth. It is a perfect combination of bronze and rose color which is not too much. Believe me you will get compliments!!
My list of NARS blushes that darker/taned skin divas must own:
Taj Mahal (the HG of all HGs)
Shu Uemura Glow on Blush in P Orange 53 is also excellent.
Don't forget your bronzer in YSL Poudre de Soleil (sun powder) in Number 2 or 3.
At first I did not like it and was going to return it, but then I contour my cheeks with it instead of just applying on the apples and bam! I fell in love!
this is one of my favorite blushes. it gives me a warm, bronzy, rosey glow. i've had it 2 years and it still looks like brand new! awesome quality too..very pigmented and really lasts.
