IMPORTANT !! IF YOU ARE INTO NARS BLUSHES, AND WERE ALLERGIC TO THEM !!
First of All::: I have noticed that nobody here has noted the change in the Nars ingredient reformulation. It no longer contains parabens, dimethicone, lanolins and clog poring, comedogenic ingredients. It now has the Exact Same ingredients as MAC blushes, and in the same order.
Some people have noticed a change in the Orgasm blush. In the tone, more pigmented, and they say is darker. I never liked Orgasm, and I also reacted bad to the old formulation. So I will try again with Douceur blush.
I love this blush! The only think I don't like about it is that I need more to give color to my skin. And the price! Argh! But I still love it. :)
This blush gets a lot of hype and honestly, I think it totally deserves it. It's the most beautiful peachy pink colour with just the right amount of shimmer, perfect for any kind of makeup look, day or night. And it's very long lasting on my skin (usually blush is the first thing that disappears on me, this one lasts all day). A must have!
Must have in your collection, it a beautiful shimmery (but over the top shimmer) dark pink, looks gorgeous in photos. When it gets thin in it case it will break and shatter into pieces. Mine has lasted me a over a year.
This blush is a must have!! You just need to apply a tiny amount to get a beautiful natural colour so it last a while. I've had mine for about 5 months now and it's still really full and i use it daily. I highly recommend this blush even if it's a little bit expensive but totally worth it!
This is a little more than I want to spend, especially considering I love the blush I am using now, but I received this in a swap as a way to test it out. It works very nicely with my very pale skin tone. I usually apply it with my Beauty Blender and I have to be VERY light when I apply it because it can very easily make me look like I have a sunburn! I intend to keep using it because it's a very flattering shade.
Pretty, pink, coral, shimmery this is a lovely blush that looks good on so many people. If you use it sparingly it is appropriate for the office and if you build the colour it is suitable for night. Have paired this with albatross (gold shimmer) and it looks nice. With nars a little goes a long way. Be careful not to pack it on too thickly on as after a while it can look a bit muddy and patchy (but that's the same with any powder product I think) definitely worth a try of you're a blush junkie (blushie??) If you're in Australia like me and paying FIFTY TO SIXTY DOLLARS for this product test it out first if you can. If you don't like shimmer or gold tones it's not for you. It's been in my weekly rotation for years and still haven't hit pan. Worth searching online to get it cheaper!!!
I really REALLY wanted to love this blush, but I just didn't. Being quite fair skinned with very pink undertones, this product was just too much colour, even with the sheerest swipe of the brush.
The colour itself is unbelievably gorgeous, a peachy pink with a gold sheen which is really very lovely. The texture to die for. I have found it to feel almost creamy which I really do love as it makes it super easy to blend in.
I felt that on a price scale it is a bit expensive but ONLY because I don't use it all that much. I have no problem paying almost the same prices for my Benefit boxed blushes. So again, I find it expensive but only because I don't use it.
All in all, I find that the blush is absolutely beautiful, highly pigmented and should be a part of your makeup bag if only to find out what it's all about. I wouldn't recommend this to my fair skinned/ fair haired compatriots only due to the fact that it only shows up to it's full potential (in my opinion) with a bit of colour (besides pale and pasty) on your skin.
I've been using this blush for years. It is really beautiful and absolutely makes me glow. I have people all the time ask me what I use to get this glow. I also sweep a little of the blush on the edge of my forehead above my temples to really give me an all-over radiance. It's not too much, but is totally stunning and natural looking.
The brand Nars is a company that has been placed in a pedestal specially for this blush. The blush itself is nice in the pan, but on my skin just gives a nice sheen for a couple hours, after that it disappears. I wish it could show better and make my money worth because $29 for a blush is very pricey. It has a lot of potential but is just not there ... Nice try Nars and thanks for making me waste my hard earn money just because you made it look nice in the pan!!!
