I Adore this blush, it's really similar to MAC's Dollymix but with the added benefit of staying power. It looks great on my warm skin and gives me a babydoll look. I pair it with Bobbi Brown's rosy lip gloss, It's a dream, and perfect for women of color.
EDIT: Why would they ever discontinue this, I seriously want to cry and for good reason. I can't find it anywhere, I have checked all of the major department stores. If anyone finds more please shhot me a message.
This is my favorite NARS blush. I am a woman of color and this is a great color for me. This blush is HIGHLY pigmented but that just mean that you need to use a lighter touch when applying it. Also this blush has lasted me forever. You only need to use a little bit to get the look you want. I also like to use the powder on my lips under a lip gloss. I think that this is the best pink for us black girls but I have found the MAC's Minerialize Blush in Love Thing is the exact same color (and I think cost a little bit less). But if you are a black girl trying to get into NARS in highly recommend starting with this blush.
Crazed is the right name for this blush. With too much of it on, a woman can truly look crazed. I would have given it a 5 except for the intensity of the color, but it is an investment, ladies, so let's not complain about the price! It is a luscious raspberry hue with a subtle elegant sheen, very cool-toned for my skin (MAC NW20) and it brings out the blue in my bright blue eyes. With a subtle touch and blending with a cotton ball, I achieved a glam look with it along with eyeshadows in gray and deep burgundy. It is not a blush for me to wear casually but when I want to dress up and wear certain colors (dark jewel tones), this blush is perfect from the fall well into early spring when I can blend it with a little bronzer. Texture is so silky it's almost non-existent.
I'll re-purchase but I figure I've got years worth of feeling a little bit crazed in this sleek black compact.
It gives a great pop of color to my cheeks! I agree with everyone, that a little goes a long way and you need a light hand to apply it. It stays on really well on my oily skin. Nars blushes are a great investment.
This blush is a very very cute raspberry color. I anticipated that it will turn too purple on my asian NC20 skin, but no - it worked wonders. :) Some people may have thought that this blush would make lighter skin tones look like a clown - this is when you need to put on little and blend well, because the color payoff is really intense.
It was recommended to me by my favorite YouTube guru, but it's a little too pink for me. I prefer Orgasm or Torrid over this. I give it 4 stars because the color is beautiful, but it's just not my cup of tea. NC45
I was worried about spending 25$ on a blush..but the color looked super pretty on olive skin tones (I googled it.) and I had to buy it! It is the most AMAZING blush I have ever owned. I also read a review from a Nars Cosmetic Artist toting Crazed as suitable for all skin tones <(so I chose it over Orgasm...which is also said to match all skin tones.)
It's HIGHLY pigmented...so if you are like me and use a heavy hand (lol),..please be careful when applying. It looks extremely natural and gorgeous. I'm serious...this blush looks scarily natural. <(That's a good thing!) I can't rave enough about this blush...buy it and see for yourself! This has made me a true believer in splurging every now in then on an investment that is TRULY worth it!! continued >>
This blush looks natural on me. I love the raspberry red with shimmers description of it. I have to use a very light hand even with my MAC 187. I wouldn't buy this again as I think this pan will last me a very loooong time and I have 5 other NARS blushes to finish.
I was so intimidated by this shade! I am an NW20-25 and this shade looks super pretty and natural on me...with a light LIGHT hand. This is probably the most pigmented shade of blush I've ever seen in my life and I am quite the beauty junkie. It's a very sweet raspberry shade with subtle shimmer. I use my skunk brush and just barely tap the surface, give the brush a shake and then apply lightly to my cheeks.
This is NARS blush with shimmer done right. More of a sheen or complimentary glow. This blush is very pigmented so it's always best to start light and build up and it shouldn't take much. It's a lighter version of outlaw on me and I love them both. For $25, this blush will last a long time. It's still there at the end of the day (at least on the side of my face I'm not leaning on my hand). Another wonderful MUA swap find. Keep 'em coming NARS.
