I bought this blush online after reading all the great reviews. I normally don't buy without seeing/trying in person but took a chance. While the blush is a beautiful color I just couldn't make it work on my NC20 skin. Even applied lightly the shade is a little too deep for me.
This is a great bronzey rose blush that I keep coming back to again and again. Love the NARS packaging in general (could do without the way the matte plastic picks up makeup smudges, but - Oh Well!) looks elegant and feels great in my hand. This must be applied very lightly as it's quite pigmented. The result, though, is that it lasts much longer than most blushes. Looks great over Laguna bronzer.
I'm slowly liking this shade. its a very natural plum/raspberry shade on me and its just such a beeyootiful color! i try to stay away from plums & dark blushes but this ones an exception. continued >>
This is one of my favorite blushes. I do find that NARS blushes are sometimes too shimmery for me, however, this one isn't. It is the perfect color for my skintone and brings my face to LIFE! I love this one and have had it for at least 8 months now. I liked this one much better than Lovejoy and Orgasm and it's not as dark as SIn, which is nice.
This is a nice medium rosey shade with gold shimmers and gives the just-exercised kind of flush to the cheeks. But it's a little dark for me so I've to be careful not to overdo it (I'm NC20). This blush would probably be more suitable for the MMMs and GGGs here. For something more natural, get Benefit's Dandelion! I don't use my NARS blushes anymore after I discovered it =P
very lovely color, a deep pink shimmery shade. i tried to make it work, but it was too dark on me, it made me look clownish . . even if applied with a light hand. on someone else, imagine this would go great with a raspberry sort of lip color . . like nars eros or mac lovechild. pass this one up if you want something more natural looking.
This was another dissapointment! I have friends who swear by this one, but I found it to be streaky and just not the best color for me. With Nars blushes I find the shimmery ones to go on streaky, however I do like the more matte ones and even the multiples.
I love this blush! First off, blushes have like, zero staying power. This one managed to stay on for a few hours and counting.
The color is perfect. It's a very pink color that makes me look all flushed and perky. Granted it's not the worlds most original color, but this has mucho texture and pigment, and the right amount of shimmer. A fingertip swiped on the blush lightly gave me plenty of coverage.
For a more neutral look, I am going to put some of my cheapo bronzer powder over this.
This is my HG blush. I love it.
I don't get it? What's the big deal about NARS blushes? You hardly get any product, the product is nice, but nothing extraordinary, and the price tag is ridiculous. This is a rose coloured blush with shimmer. That's all. I am soooo dissapointed. Outlaw was my third and final attempt.
You want a GREAT blush and a GREAT value. One word: CARGO.
I will never stray again....
Gorgeous pink-red color with some very subtle shimmer, I look like I'm glowing when I wear it! Somehow, my cheekbones look higher and more defined-- or is it my imagination? I'm giving this a 4 because NARS blushes are expensive (although they last forever, this can be a problem for me because I easily tire of makeup). A similar color to this would be L'Oreal Rosy Cheeks blush delice (from the Philippines.. not sure what it is internationally). Overall, the color is wonderful on my skin (MMM, NC30), although I find that the texture isn't as great as Shu Uemura glow-ons.
