NARS blushes are coveted for a reason. This shade in particular is super versatile and beautiful on my olive skin. It is a very nude dusty pink with shimmer. The effect can be made more intense with a strong hand but I usually go for a light dusting to offset a strong eye or lip. It is my go to for most of my smoky eye looks.
NARS has a nice color line, good packaging, decent prices for a higher-end makeup brand, and the product lasts through my work day or event. I wouldn't hesitate to buy another of their blushes, but this one is slightly too dark for my skin tone. I picked this color up on eBay on the recommendation of a family member, and while it looks great on her more-olive skin, it looks a little unnatural on me. I will not give up on NARS blushes though!
I've been after the perfect blush for a while, and this is for sure one of my favorites. I love dramatic eye makeup and this is the perfect nude color--just enough so that your cheeks are defined, not too much that you look overdone. I love the blendability and the color payoff. This is my first nars blush, and I will be repurchasing in the future.
This is a brown blush with micro glitter. It looks great and natural on the cheek. LOVE IT! I don't know with others but I don't really like the texture of NARS blush, it get scattered when you swipe the brush on. I like MAC blush texture better. But still this colour is very sexy!
this blush is lovely, very pretty and great quality. However, it doesn't do exactly what I want for my complexion. It DOES look nice, but I need a little bit more color. If this had the teeniest bit more peach or rosey tone in it, it would PERFECT. this can be easily corrected by layering another layer of another color, but I am determined to find another nars blush that will work better for me. I am NC30 right now, although I am aware that many people with my coloring are saying it is working well for them, I think NC25 or lighter would be in love with this blush! price wise, comparable to other HE blushes. packaging is perfect- minimalist not bulky at all
This blush needs more love. I told the MA I didn't want a bronzer because I thought they always looked funny on someone as pale as me but this just worked. Looks pretty blah in the pan compared to the other NARS blush but goes on really nicely, without any chunky glitter. Excellent contouring blush.
This is the perfect nude blush on me (NC20). It is a pink toned brown with shimmer that looks amazing on. You do have to have a delicate hand if you are fair, something I achieve with my NARS Yachiyo brush. However, I'm sure you could get the same result with a good dual fiber brush and some patience. I think this would work for a wide variety of skin tones since you can build up the color intensity. Definitely recommended and will buy again if I ever run out.
OMG this is a horrible blush on me ( pale skin with sublte yellow unbdertones )
it makes me look dirty and muddy , i just have to wash my face right after i put it on :s
and also the horrible glitters that Nars love to put it their products drive me crazyyyyyyyyy , it's just not subtle at all
I hate Nars packagings they look so cheap and tacky in my opinion since they get dirty really quick...
this is my new love and i have a lot of blushes
very natural ,beautiful shimmer i love it
madly is my all time fav blush from nars & forever will be <3
it was a task to find this on mua. I wanted to swap for it because I was just getting into nars & the price was a lot to me for a blush. but I was fortunate to swap with a swet girl, when I got madly in the mail I opened it and fell in "mad" love =0]
now im officially hooked on nars xx
nars blushes are made with such high quality. the powder is so finely milled. super soft. and ohh soo pigmented! u barely need to touch the product and you have so much on your brush.
madly is what nars described as a "seashell pink" and at first I didn't see the pink. but in the sunlight, the pink comes thru & boy is it beautiful! but the main reason madly is so pretty is because of the main color.. a gorgeous tan/bronze/beige with irredescent shimmer. there's some green shimmer [tiny sparkles] and with the tan blush it gives a nice olive glow. just enough pink and brown in one blush=perfection!
I wear this almost everyday. you can't go wrong. it matches everything in my makeup stash. I use either my mac 188, 116 or my nars ita long handle kabuki. which is a whole other review. but its a wonderful brush made for nars blushes. it picks up just the right amount of product so you never over-do it. [since nars is so pigmented] any of these brushes work great. and I use it as my blush & bronzer so I just apply it to my apples and as a contour. a little on my jawline and im done.
this is the best product to have when ur in a hurry and just want to be polished, it looks like you spent a lot of time when it takes mere seconds. this would work great for al skin tones. I would check it out at sephora if you can. but if you can't. just order it or swap for it. its completely worth the risk. I took it and am the happiest girl in the makeup world for finding such a sexy product. thanks nars! xox
