I got Outlaw thinking it would be a bright, berryish rose for summer. Unfortunately, on my neutral/yellowish undertoned PPP skin, it's much more subdued that I thought it would be. On me it appears much more of a deep rose color with shimmer... not horrible, just not what I thought it would be. I also find that the color blends very well with my skin so even when I apply with a heavy hand, it still appears light and natural. A very nice color, but it just appears much differently on me than other reviewers.
UPDATE: OK, I've started applying this with a regular brush instead of a skunk brush... what a difference! I've now got the berry color I was looking for. It looks 100x better, I've upped my review one lippie.
NARS Outlaw Blush is yet again another top quality item from Francois Nars. I LOVE OUTLAW!! The colour is just the most beautiful GOLDEN ROSE I have ever seen - the deep rose colour mixed with the golden shimmer (don't worry IT'S NOT OVERLY SHIMMERY!!) gives a really natural flushed colour with a bit of punch to it! A light sweep looks fabulous for day and a few light layers is great for night. Like a lot of the other reviewers I would recommend using a light hand when applying because the blush is pigmented but in my opinion that's a MAJOR PLUS because then you don't use as much and the pan will last you ages! A touch expensive for a blush but the quality, colour, etc more than makes up for that. DEFINITELY WOULD REPURCHASE!!
This one did not work for me. I bought it based on how lovely Sin looks, but no matter how lightly I applied Outlaw, it made me look like a clown. The color just did not blend with my pale skin.

I am in love with this blush! Like others, I was somewhat warey a purchasing this color b/c I am so pale, but when applied with a light hand, it gives me a perfect rosey glow. It makes me look like I have been outside on a winter day. I will be repurchasing.
I was deathly afraid to buy this blush because I am very, very pale and had read all the reviews about how vibrant and pigmented this is. But when I got to Sephora to check it out in person, it actually seemed doable. And I love it!
It's a beautiful light rose on my cheeks; I do have to use a very light hand, but it blends so easily that it's not difficult to apply at all. And the staying power is superb. Another winner from NARS.
I LOVE this blush! Provides a pretty rosy flush that lasts and lasts. Orgasm really didn't show up on me despite my paleness. I reach for Outlaw every day - this could be the first blush I need to replace.
I'm a NC44 (dark brown hair and eyes) and this is a great everyday blush on me. It gives me a sublte rose flush so it's my go-to blush if I'm in a rush and don't have time to choose. There is shimmer but it is not too obvious. The colour is long lasting though I notice when I put it on bare skin it does not last as long as if I were to wear foundation. I'm glad I discovered Nars blushes.
Such a beautiful blush that gives me an effortless rosy look. Very blendable and long lasting. On my face, I don't see any shimmer at all, just a glowy sheen from far away. When I first got my blush I was surprised at how small the container was. I thought maybe sephora mailed me a eye shadow by mistake. But a little goes a long way so it's worth it.
I am in love with Nars blushes, I have Outlaw and Exhibit A. I like Outlaw for more of an everyday rosy cheek look. Outlaw is a nice raspberry with gold flecks color. This blush is fool proof with the MAC Stippling brush. Very highly pigmented color, nice shimmer looks fantastic on my GGG NC45 skin. I am lovin' NARS blushes. Expensive but fabulous and they last all day.
i wont comment too much since this has so many reviews already.
my skin tone - NW 20 / NC 30
this blush needs to be applied very lightly otherwise i look like i'd just gone drinking. lols! but applied properly and lightly, it gives a very lovely rosey flush, something a little darker and more coloured then the usual pinky/peachy lighter colours i tend to go for.
shimmer particles are tiny and not excessive so they dont really show up that much on skin (unlike orgasm where the shimmer was much more noticeable for me)
highly pigmented product, great staying power as well. this blush is best only when it is applied lightly, or for people who arent afraid of more colour.
