This is my HG of blushes...It looks fabulous on NC 42-NC44 skin! It looks dark in the compact by blends beautifully..
I really love this blush! I went to sephora on the look out for a new Nars blush and I was hoping to get torrid or deep throat. For some reason, when I got the MUA to try them on me, both ended up making my face look a bit orange.. I asked to try Dolce Vita which looked great but then she suggested that I try this out too. It really did not catch my eye but I am so glad she tried it out on me! The colour makes my cheeks look nice and rosy in a natural way with a slight glitter. Its fantastic! would definitely buy again!
This blush is great. The color is this lovely dusty rose brown, and if you're tanned or olive it should look great. There is glitter on it but it doesn't overly emphasize pores or anything. I apply it with a MAC116, and I generally have to do so with a light hand because otherwise it can be super streaky. It's not a low maintenance blush but its very pretty and lives up to its Nars name.
my gosh! It's like a glitter bomb in a blush packaguing. It's purple in the pan, but it doesnt look purple in your skin. It just looks sheer white. Not for me, but it is pretty.
this stuff was horrible left my skin blotchy after a few hours of wear. maybe it is because i have oily skin.
I am an NC42/44 mix in MAC Studio tech and MUFE 170 (freckle face lady :-) ) - I had a laundry list of blushes I wanted to try/buy and Lovejoy was NOT one of them. The Sephora artist grabbed it anyway and once she put it on, I thought "HOLY LIPPIES!! This is awesome" This is my total and absolute default blush that I would wear everyday. The pan does not do it justice at all and if it were not for the beauty consultant - I would have totally still been in the dark about this incredibly beautiful product. He even put some in the crease of my eyelid and my everyday look was flawless and effortless.
Even with light application Lovejoy made my cheeks look muddy and dirty. There is a lot glitter in this blush, and this blush emphasized my pores. Like all Nars blushes have, this blush did last all day.
Lovejoy is the perfect combination of brown, mauve, pink and peach. It comes off very dark on the pan, but as long as you use this with a light hand, you can have a great blush. You can also put it on the hollows of your cheeks for a more defined cheekbone. Very versatile! This is one of the most wearable shades I own. Looks great with red or pink lipsticks, a smokey or just a lined eye.
Nars Lovejoy is a beautiful bronzed plum-rose. I'd actually bought it for my NC40 Olive toned mum. But she freaked out. She'd really gone heavy on it as she was not expecting it to be so pigmented. You have to use this, and almost all the Nars blushes (except Orgasm) very lightly to get the most out of them. I put it on her again properly and it totally changed her mind. It looked beautiful against her olive complexion.
I'd left my Nars Zen blush at home when we were on holiday so I borrowed Lovejoy and I never returned it to her when we got back. I'm NC25, also very olive and it looked great on me too. It brightens my sallow skin so much. I love to wear it with a tinted moisturiser, a neutral eye and Chanel Mademoiselle lipstick. I reach for this almost everyday.
This is truly a 5 star product! I can't believe that I have avoided this blush for so long but I now that I have it, I can't live without it. It is exactly as described; a beautiful bronzed rose with slight gold shimmer that does not transfer glittery to the skin in my experience. It has an amazingly soft texture similar to Madly and is very pigmented so I do recommend using a light-hand or a skunk brush to apply. It applies like a dream to the skin and is a beautiful rose color with the just the right amount of bronziness to give your whole face a healthy glow. And paired with NARS Albatross highlighter, *swoon*! A definite must-have for those who have tanned skin especially NC35's and above. On fair skin, it may translate slightly more orange so be wary of that. For reference, I am NC42, NARS Barcelona/Syracuse, with dark brown eyes and black hair.
