This is a nice blush, but it is not that great. It is a very pretty peachy color, but the shimmer in it just makes me crazy!! I personally don't have lots of pores problem, but wearing blush with that much of gold shimmer just makes you looks like a nut okay?! When I put it on I just feel that my brush picked up more shimmer than the actual color, which makes you look like a freaking disco ball. It need few layers to actually pigmented but when it's pigmented your face just looks shinning. It use it pretty often just because I don't want to waste my money, but I feel like it can last forever. If you have a choice just picked up other NARS blushes.
I know everything that can be said about this blush has probably been said, but I thought I'd throw my two cents in anyway. I got talked into this by a sales assistant (I swear they must get a commission for selling this particular shade) and of the ones I swatched it did look the most beautiful, a warm pinky peach with gorgeous gold (think Albatross) shimmer (it didn't seem like glitter or chunky shimmer to me as some reviewers have said). I figured I could blush and highlight all in one step.
From a reasonable distance or in photos this is quite flattering, it gives a warm natural flush and a glowy effect, but up close it is frost-astic. It sort of looked like I picked up a frosty eyeshadow and worn that as blush. It managed to accentuate my pores and made me look kind of greasy and over made-up. On nicer skin than mine this could look stunning, it really is a beautiful product, but on me it was clear after wearing it a couple of times that it wasn't flattering. So no, I wouldn't re-purchase, and I swapped it away in the end.
I really wanted to love this blush but couldn't due to the amount of glitter in the product. Needless to say, it's absolutely gorgeous in the pan and has great pigmentation! The packaging is quite compact and sturdy but collects residual powder from the product easily.
On this freckled, fair skinned redhead, this is the Best. Blush. Ever.
Beautiful, natural, glowy and long lasting. I think one of these days I will toss all my other blushes. There is no need for any other.
HG, hands down.
First off, the packaging is nice. It reminds me of the elf studio line. Second, the formula is very nice and creamy and the color is beautiful. It is kind of a peachy color with gold shimmer that looks great on most every skin tone.
A few years ago i would have added to all the hype that this nars blush surrounds,but now not so much.i used this blush for a good 8 years ,then suddenly it just stopped working on me i tried my best to re kindle what we had but no i sensed it was about to leave me and let it go.This used to give me THAT glow i never looked at another blush as it met all my needs and was long lasting,i cant say for sure why it stopped giving me that glow the colour just started looking all wrong i thought maybe i had picked up a dud one and bought two more from the nars site but they too failed me.i then tried a succession of nars blushers includin super orgasm glitterland,torrid,oasis,luster desire,and a few others as on me nars blushers are the only long lasters.im now bact to using benefit dandelion which is what i used before i used orgasm as i cant find a colour that will work on me.
I love this! I'm an asian lady with tan skin with generous yellow undertones. I wasn't expecting it to be this amazing on my skintone because a lot of reviews say this might be better on fairer skin. But this gives me a pinkish gold flush which looks totally natural. Longevity is amazing too! I have crazy oily skin and most blushes fade on me after 4 hours. I've had it on for 6 and it's the same as when I first put it on! Amazing! This starts my obsession with nars blushes. Will definitely repurchase and collect more blushes from nars!
I'm a naturally tanned skin girl and for me this blush imparts a subtle blush from within look. Nothing dramatic but great for everyday. Highly recommended for those girls that like that natural, pretty and classic look.
I have been wanting to try this blush for awhile. I was worried that it might be to peachy for my fair skin but the color is perfect. Even though it is pigmented it still gives a sheer, flushed look that is amazing. Plan on purchasing the shade sin next. Wish the staying power was better- reason for only 4 lippies but if you want a sheer flushed look this blush delivers.
