This is a gorgeous peachy blush, less orangey than Gina which is why I bought it, which makes me look nice and healthy and glowing! It's a change from the typical red coloured blush and is lovely for summer. As always great quality blusher from nars. And there are no sparkles woo!
I got this as a gratis and when I looked at it, I thought Whoa, Orange! Also, it's matte and I prefer shimmery. So I just let it sit in my Warehouse 13 make-up drawer.
The other day, I was experimenting with new colors. I picked this up and decided to give it a try. I used my bronzer brush, tapped the excess off, and gently patted it on my cheeks. Well, what do you know. I was perfectly delighted with it. i got a lovely, delicate color. More coral than orange, and perfectly wearable. Mind you, I used it VERY sparingly. It was enough.
Talk about not judging stuff by the looks.
I love Nars's matte formulas because it is so silky it doesn't feel like powder! Gilda is a cheery coral colour with more pink in it than Gina.
Gilda when Applied lightly might be natural looking but had to apply it heavily for my daughter's recital and it was too orangy! I used orgasm instead and (btw orgasm looked perfect on my daughter's NC35-37 skin but not on me I'm NC37 it makes my blemishes more pronounced) Also it was manufactured 2 years ago 2008 and it smells like "forgotten old makeup" I compared the smell with Nars O and it smells different!!!! The Nars O was manufacturted 2009. Is it really ok for them to sell 2 year old makeup? It seems too long. Called customer service and they said their blushes can last up to 5-6 years on the shelves which I doubt! and this person over the phone doesn't even know about the open jar logo when we asked about it.
I am a huge NARS fan and Gilda is one of my favourite products. Looks heavy at first but on my skin it's a beautiful corally-pink and you only need the tiniest amount so yes, it's expensive, but it lasts a seriously long time! I also think the packaging is beautiful, simplistic and hardy - I've never had a NARS product shatter like so many bronzers and blushers do with every day use. It's my HG and I couldn't ask for a better product.
I can't remember if I have already reviewed this or not, but if I have oh well because I love this! I have been using this for about a year now, and I haven't hit pan! You don't need much, it is a very pigmented peachy-pink color. Perfect color for my NC37 skintone, it gives me the "glow" and really just brightens up my face. I also have MAC peaches, which is also a matte peachy blush, and compared to that, the NARS is just a bit darker/redder or pinker, while MAC peaches is more lighter orangey-er. Both look similar when it on my face, but the NARS shows up a TAD darker/pinker on my skin compared to the MAC peaches which is a more true peach. I think this blush is worth every penny! I have been using this for so long!
Can I just go ahead and say that NARS blushes will never fail me? I just got this in a swap and I cannot believe that I didn't own this before. It's what I wanted every peach blush I've ever owned to be. In the pan, Gilda is a matte pinky-peach that actually looks kind of ho-hum. When I first opened it I was a little disappointed even, because it looked sooo boring (I'm used to being captivated by all the shimmers and multi-dimensions of Orgasm, I think). However, when I put it on, the results were outstanding. Let's first discuss the texture. It's a bit more powdery then Orgasm and other NARS blushes I have, I think mostly because there is little to no shimmer. However, when you dip your brush into the pan there's no flying of powder anywhere, which shows that it's finely milled and pressed well. It's highly pigmented, so I don't really do anything but gently dab my blush brush into the blush. I then dab the color gently on the apples of my cheeks buff it out towards my temples. The result is a beautiful, smooth, GLOWLY peach color that isn't too pink, peach, coral or orange, but a PERFECT combo of all those lovely colors that alone might look garish. For the first time I feel like I have that Kim Kardashian no-undereye-circles-contoured-glowly-perfect-face-structure-look. I highly recommend this lovely blush. A couple more days of use and if it doesn't break me out (NARS blushes never have) I'm gonna have to deem this an HG.
This is my all time favorite peach blush! It last all day on my skin, and it doesn't make my face too dirty. For peach blush, it usually make me look sick because i have a yellow undertone skin (NC 30), but with this, it makes me look really healthy all day long. I will not buy this again because it will last me a long time unless i lost it then i will for sure purchase this again.
if your looking for coral look no further, its amaaaazing. I looooove nars blushes! gilda is the perfect coral colour for asain skin tones. I'm NC30 and it looks fantastic on me. I prefer matte blushes to sparkly ones. Orgasm is the only Nars blush that I dislike because I think that Mac springsheen has got it beat. I'm not a fan of sparkle. and springsheen is the only Mac blush that I prefer over Nars blush
HG blush for me!!!! I never ever wear blush I feel like it just doesn't look that great on my skin (NC45 with a bit of redness on my cheeks even when I'm tan), I've tried all kinds of different shades of blush and none I find look great. Recently i started branching out from just bronzers and into peachy bronze blushes since summer is coming! Well I heard about Nars Gina and that it was a great summer blush so i figured I'd give it a shot. When i got to the Nars counter i noticed it was a bit to pink for me, so the SA suggested Gilda, she applied it and WOW!!! I never thought a blush could look so good, I couldn't help but look at myself in the mirror throughout the day, I have been wearing this blush ever since, great matte blush, great staying power, great color, just wonderful! If you guys are around a Nars counter check out this blush its worth it!
