This is my favorite blush!!! I am NC35-40 depending on time if year and this is my best most natural flushed cheek color and it blends so well!!! I have several of Nars blushes but this is my favorite most natural looking one and it lasts so long!! I work 12 hour shifts and this holds up without reapplying for me!! It seems that blush with a little sheen or shimmer lasts longer than matte in my opinion. I also have dolce vita and I love the color but it just didn't last very long at all!! That is how I came across this. I wanted something with same color with a little shimmer in it and this is even better in my opinion and I am 41, so yes ladies us older girls can wear a little shimmer!! This isn't chunky glitter just nice sheen!!

Such a pretty blush... this type of dark red is very in right now.This is my 7th Nars blush and is now one of my favorites, right behind Luster and Orgasm.

Oh-my-goodness, there is only one word to best describe this blush..."BEAUTIFUL." I've seen a lot of raves about Nars Outlaw blush, but I believe (and please correct me if I am wrong.) the color was discontinued for a while and then Nars added Outlaw back to its line. I can't comprehend why Outlaw was discontinued in the first place, but that doesn't matter anymore. Outlaw is without question my favorite blush, I could literally wear it everyday all year round. If I could only have one blush in my collection to be honest this would be it. No matter what kind of look I am going for, this blush just looks amazing. So now I know what all the pother concerning Outlaw was about. Thank you Nars for bringing this blush back!!! Now if you could only bring back Crazed, so I can try that one too....Also, it would be nice to do a collection on popular limited edition items as well. :)

Very lovely blush. This is really like the darker sister of the hyped up Orgasm. If you are darker complected and had bad luck with Orgasm, give Outlaw a try.It does exactly what Orgasm does for lighter skin, but for deeper skin.

NARS describes this blush as "a soft rose tone with golden shimmer" on their site. This is pretty much true. I'd consider it a light raspberry with a slight coral tinge and golden shimmer. It's actually quite a complex and hard to describe shade. This is a very nice blush for the summer months. It goes beautifully with a little shimmery bronzer.

The reason that i am taking a lippie off of this blush is because it seems to apply weirdly. It goes on blotchy and uneven. I've never had this issue with any other NARS blushes. And no it's not anything that i am doing, because I've tried it on different people, with different brushes etc. Weird.

BTW- This goes AMAZINGLY with NARS 'Misbehave' lip gloss. It's the ultimate lip/cheek combo, especially for the summer months.

Overall it's a nice blush. I'd say that it's best suited to darker skin with yellow underones. 4/5.

NW10-15 (neutral-cool toned, very fair), blue eyes, Color season is True Summer, Baumann Skin Type is OSPW.

Wow I am so impressed! This is a beautiful plum red blush on me, looks so natural and goes well with so many different looks. When applied lightly (I use a duo fiber brush), it gives a lovely rosey glow. I love how it's not overly cool toned, as I think it adds to the versatility.

I love, love, love this blush! I never got to try the old version of Outlaw, but the new version is just fine with me. Pretty much HG status.

Love the finely milled texture (that is the hallmark of Nars blushes). It glides on so smoothly and evenly...just perfect. The color looks very natural, even on my PPP skin.

Overall, a beautiful, beautiful blush. Worth the price!

This blush doesn't *really* work for me, am a slightly tanned, Asian yellow-skinned tone (MAC NC30). I swept this across my face as per my usual blushes and it looked really bad and muddy, like I haven't washed my skin in ages...and enhanced all my pigmentations and acne scars...shockingly bad!! I tried it again, with very very very minute amounts on an angled brush and patted it on gently...and it sorta works! Very small amounts needed IMHO, especially if you have yellow-based skintone! So am sitting on the fence for this one...

When I first saw this blush, I immediately thought of how gorgeous it would look in the winter with paler skin--I imagined coming inside from the freezing cold with beautiful flushed cheeks and this blush does just that! It is a raspberry color with gold shimmer that is very pigmented! When I first bought it and tried swatching it, it appeared on my finger but when swatched, it didn't appear on my hand. I was worried... but when applied on the cheeks with a brush (stippling brush or a regular blush brush with a light hand)it was just as pigment as every NARS blush I have! Now that I think of it, it would also look beautiful on deeper skin tones as well. Lovely!!

This is the review for the NEW outlaw. It's a nice color, workable texture, but not appealing definitely. I own the old one and I love it. It is my everyday blush in cold days - lovely color, super blendable and great lasting power. I never mind the golden sparkles disappear in the brushes. When I heard that NARS changed the formula, I was exciting and visiting the counter to try it on. However, I tried it three times and I hardly love this as much as the old one. It's a mid tone red with golden shimmer and that's it. I personally like the darker old version more. Quality-wise, it's rather sheer, yet less blendable and hard to pick up with brush. I am not quite sure if the sheerness and less blendability are from fewer product picked up or simply the formula. Also, the lasting power isn't as good. I never tried on from 8am-11pm, which is the normal long day for me, but it fades noticeably somehow even from 11am-9pm. I'm so glad that I got the old one.
