i love this color a lot! never had one like this before. it looks so natural on my face, well...just dont put too much on lol
I love this blush.. It gives you a nice natural flush to my c1 from mac or deuville from nars skin I use macs 187 brush and it looks great. I'd buy it again and again and again but a little bit goes a long way with this I don't know if I will ever run out.
First impression, it looks so scary on the pan. Bubble gum pink! Desire is a matte blush. Once I put it on, my face looks instantly brighter. It shows up as very pretty cool pink when applied light handed. Eventhough Desire is cool pink colour, it is still suitable for warmer skintone ladies. A lot of people compared Desire with Matahari and Angelika. However, having one of the three is enough for me as they all look identical. http://aboutagirl.onsugar.com/Review-NARS-Blushes-Swatches-11880958
I love this blush! It's extremely pigmented and soft. I'm NW15ish and this color looks amazing on me. I had looked at it several times in Sephora but always passed on buying it because it's so bright in the pan. One day I decided to swatch it on my hand and was completely sold. It gives me a really beautiful "doll" flush. I have to be really careful to use a very light hand when applying this because too much will make me look like a clown. When I apply this I barely tap my brush into the blush. This color definitely looks great on very fair skin tones and I am sure it would look very nice on darker women as well. This is one of my favorite blushes. I will definitely repurchase this in the future if I ever run out, but I cannot imagine that happening any time soon. Buy this!! You won't be disappointed!
I have very light skin and I find that the blush is very workable to make it appear natural. The secret is to use a really light hand. I was kind of intimidated when I purchased it, as it seems really bright in the package but it leaves a beautiful flush in the end. I get compliments that I look really healthy when I do wear it so clearly it isn't fake looking on me. The only downside is the price, but I imagine that I will have it for a really long time as a little really does a lot.
I guess I am in the minority on desire. I was dying to try this so I swapped for it but it looked chalky and unnatural on my cheeks that I had to swap this away as well. I have had about 3-4 nars blushes and I am disappointed very time with the quality and texture of the blushes. I really wanted to love nar blushes but for now I'll prefer to stick to MAC.
This is almost my perfect blush. I need a tad bit of peach in my blush so I mix this with CoverGirl Classic in Natural Glow.
Desire is easy to apply and does not look chalky. If you want a dewy look scrape a little and mix it with a bit of moisturizer.
This is such a pretty pink blush. I love the flushed look it gives my cheeks (like I just came in from the cold!) Everyone in my family who has tried it on looks great with it! The only thing I hate about nars is the packaging. No matter how careful I am with it, it always looks dirty and I cant get it clean. I would purchase it if I ran out but I doubt I ever will
i was really skeptical about this scary looking little thing, but i brought it anyway...without trying it on my face as i brought it online. i was so determined that pink wouldn't look natural on me since i started wearing blush. story starts from the very first blush i brought which comes in a multiple stripes of pink, ranging from a pale pink highlighter, baby pink, medium pink and a plummy pink...i looked horribly with that on. none of those shades suit my NC15 to NC20 Asian complexion. then i was introduced to MAC "foolish me" which is a orange coral and i look so much better with that. since then i have rarely brought any pink blush except one from HR and i did not enjoy that either. it was a crazy idea to buy this knowing that either warm/cool toned pink has ever worked. i tried it on when i receive it with the LE eyeshadow today. love it! i have no idea how this whole color mechanism works, but desire works just beautifully, give me the youthful glow so naturally. it does not look overly feminine. it looks like a glow from within..with a light hand and a small stippling brush. if a pink work for me, i think it will work for anybody with any complexion.
For reference i'm nc30/35 and this blush is going to last me a loooong time! It is very pigmented (like all nars blushes, ime) and literally the smallest amount is needed with desire. In the pan it looks very scary; but once applied lightly it really is very flattering on my skintone. I usually like to use a heavier than normal hand when applying blush; but with this one I always have to remember to take it easy! Would def recommend to others with similar skintones.
