I ordered Nar's blush in Desire beacuse i liked the namemost often leads to a return but this was a surprise in two ways. after the initial shock of seeing this neon pink shade and running for my receipt to reurn the obviously unwearable shade of clown pink, i accidently tried it on. It wasd beautiful!!! I mean it is gave me the most natural flushed cheek. i was told 'you look so pretty today" numerous times and it didnt loook like i had applied any make-up. So please dont be scared by this color.Nars knew the look he wanted and did a fabulous job creating it for the spring runways.Now there is shade out there that is my secret weapon against looking washed out.The same Nars packaging that doesnt have a mirror on the compact lid.staying power is long and a little touch on the apple of our cheek will get you threough the winter months. Yes, i am stocking up on this and reccomend it to anyone seeking that elusive 'flush".
I love Nars blushes in general. I find them to be high in pigmentation (aka. a little goes a long way) and very silky in texture. This blush follows that and the colour is great for spring! It's really bright and for my skin tone (MAC NC30), the colour is great for the fresh and 'girl next door' look. Just use it sparingly though!
Desire is one of those blush colors that I never would have tried except for having read great reviews about it on the internet. It looks bright fuschia pink which would send most people running but do not let that scare you. Just the teeniest tiniest bit of it on my blush brush gives me a lovely pink glow. It is very natural looking. When I want to add a little glimmer I dust a little Maybelline Prep's Cool Pink on top.
Nars Orgasm and Sin don't show up well on my fair skin but this blush is fantastic.
At first I thought that I wasn't so crazy about this shade but I was so wrong! It looks like an extra bright pink in the compact, I think that's what threw me off. It actually goes on much softer and it looks so pretty on. It gives my cheeks a natural pink flush of color. This is a must have for me during the winter. This has to be my favorite NARS Blush. Huge rave from me! Everyone should try this! :o)
Desire is the perfect matte pink. Its bright and i love it w/ my summer tan. The gold in my coloring makes the matte pink look just beautiful. I cannot wear pinks that are shimmery. They look awful on most skintones, fortunately this isnt at all like Orgasm with the shimmer and glittery gold specks. Desire is the first blush i have found that is true to color as well as being matte .Nice packaging except for the price i think there should be a mirror on the top as well as a bay blush brush thrown in for $20.00 ,I would defiantely buy it again unless i find a similar color with better packaging or alittle less pricey for a fairly common simmer color. In winter its too bright for my fair skin but can wear it if i use an xtra light touch on the apples of my cheek for an in from the cold. Unfortunately i dont think darker complexions would do to well with this bright pink.A plus is i noticed it realy makes blue eyes "pop"
This is another product I bought because of the recs here ;)
The colour scared me at first, but it gives me such cute flush, even some Armani MA's gave me compliments...hehehe
And, oh always use light hand!!
i really wanted to like this blush, but it just didn't work for me. after using this for a while, i have switched back to using lorac's "desire" blush. the color is less of a shocking pink, and in my opinion, blends in better. i will give nars kudos for the way it packages its blushes, though. the mini compact with mirror is very useful, and the rubberish material on the outer part of the compact is especially handy for serial compact breakers like me. i may try "mata hari", which is a lighter pink color, before i give up on nars blushes.
I got this in a makeup lot on ebay, because otherwise I would never of touched it because it looks way too bright. But with my fair skin, if I use just a touch it gives me a rosy glow. But I need to be very careful not to use too much. Good quality, though.
I love this blush, even more than sin, and I didn't think that was possible! It looks VERY scary in the box, (hot pink) but on, it gives a beautiful flush, very beautiful!
Nars blushes are awesome. This is buy far the best quality blush I have used. Desire is a beautiful medium bright pink. Makes your face glow. Very long lasting. I will definately buy again!
