this blush is a gorgeous tangerine colour which gives a natural flush to my yellow toned NC20 skin tone. applied to the apples of the cheeks with NARS Laguna makes a really nice combination.
I would never have even looked twice at Gina if it hadn't been for the sales assistant in Mecca who suggested it and the reviews on here. I'm really glad I did. Luster has been my HG for a few years now but gina is definitely a better day time blush. I totally get what other reviewers mean when they say gina gives that glow from within! I apply the SMALLEST amount of gina to my cheeks and then (if I want a bit more definition) I contour my cheek bones with Nars Zen. I highlight/blend with Nars Nico and then a touch of Nars Albatross. What I love about Gina is it gives more of a golden/peachy glow, whereas Luster tends to be a lot more pink on me. Even being light-handed it can look a little too much but gina is so natural. Probably helps it's much more matte. I think the more important thing to keep in mind if you do want to try gina is to be very, very careful how much you apply. Especially if you are fair like me. I personally believe this shade should suit most skin tones if applied properly.
This blush is beautiful, but I would expect nothing less from NARS. Apricot/orange-y colors are really great for people like me who have redder undertones. It is great for sculpting. I usually add some pink on the apples like Desire or Gaiety, looks really pretty. This has become my everyday blush.
I love this blush! On me, its a peachy/apricot colour and looks really pretty on the cheeks. I thought this would be too orange on my NW15 skintone but not all! You can wear it sheer (like I do) or build it up if you have a darker skintone. I especially love wearing this on holidays when I'm a bit tanner and it looks fab! Would highly recommend to anyone!
This was my first NARS product i ever bought & i bought it in a small shop, which just had swatches, so after swatching various blushes on my hand, i decided to buy Gina, as it looked a gorgeous peach colour. However, when i got home & tried it on my cheeks, it looked orange, as i am quite pale. After having it for over 3 months now, i have learnt that NARS blushes are very pigmented & you can achieve a gorgeous look if you use a duo fibre/stippling brush. After use these tips, Gina gives me a beautiful peachy colour & now its my everyday blush.
I love this blush! On me, it's a cross between apricot and orange (I'm NW20-25), and although it's matte, it imparts a subtle sheen and brightens up my complexion. The formula is fantastic - smooth and easy to work with, and it also lasts all day. Gina was well worth the splurge!
Really pretty color. i think its universally flattering to all skin tones and it looks awesome with NARS Dolce Vita Velvet matte or Lipstick. The only bad part is I have many blushes that look EXACTLY like this. One is my Smashbox Regal. And I think that one has a better packaging since its padded my blush wont break if i drop it. overall though its a beautiful peachy-orange color that adds a nice warm glow to pasty yellow undertoned face like mine (fair medium skin).
In my opinion this is the best blush color for nc 40 - 42 ladies it's a nice peachy color .. with matte finish so when i apply my highlighter on my cheekbone i dont end up with a glitter miss i do end up with when i use glittery blush .. its never over the top even if i apply it with a heavy hand it never give a clownish look if you know what i mean ...love it ..over all ..if you have tan or olive skin tone and into matte blush this is for you ..will buy again
I've always tended to go for pink blushers thinking they would give me that youthful looking blush I was aiming for. I was happy with Benetint but it was starting to sink into my pores and emphasisng them so I thought I would move onto a power blush and thought a change of colour was in order. After reading a few reviews on Gina I am now a convert. It picks up pigment really well (something a recently bought Chanel blush failed to do) and gives a lovely, natural looking blush. I've recieved two compliments since wearing it. Really easy to apply - I've used a kubuki and a Chanel brush and both worked really well. I haven't found it too intense at all and think it will last for a long time. I've thrown my other blushes in the drawer and only using this one now, although I am keen to try a few other colours too. I will only buy Nars blush from now on!
I brought this 2 years ago and have worn it every now and then since. Only recently did I really learn to really appreciate it, having worn it almost everyday for the last month.
Again quality is the same as any other NARS blush, top of their game.
To me this is the Perfect Peach! I know on the website it's describe as a true tangerine, but whatever!
I believe this is a matte finish, and when blended properly, this colour gives an absolutely amazing glowing flush. This is one of those colour that soo versatile regardless of season or occasion.
I usually just tap my flat top kabuki in the pan once, light dab it on my cheeks and then blend. A little goes a long way and yes it is really pigmented.
I'm NC30 in terms of complexion and most peach blush usually dont go well with my complexion, but this blush does.
