"Dessert glow" is the description on the NARS website for Irresistiblement and I have to say it's right on point. On my light yellow skintone, it shows up a warm peachy tan and gives me a healthy sunkissed glow. For reference, I am a NC15/20.

I use this mainly to contour my cheekbones, but sometimes I use it as a blush on light makeup days. It is my HG bronzer whenever I want that "just spent the day by the beach" look. I hate bronzers that are too brown as they have a tendency to make me look muddy. Too much red and it'll make my red cheeks ruddy. Too orange and I look like oompa loompa. Don't even get me started on shimmery bronzers...but Irresisitiblement gives me that perfect peachy tan. Well, it doesn't give so much a tan as it warms your skin, giving you a healthy glow.

Peaches work very well with my skintone. Normally I use two dabs and it's enough for both cheeks and sharpening my jawline. The powder is not super pigmented and can be layered for the desired look you want to achieve, although I find that too much can make me look orange. Unfortunately, NARS discontinued this bronzer and I am on a quest to find a dupe. Highly recommend if you can manage to get your hands on one. I know I will be stocking up.

The search for a "just warmed up glow" is over. I have tried quite a number of bronzer products...this is the best. Used alone or on top of my blush-on, Irresisriblement gives me that healthy skin look. It's matte finish does not require frequent touch-ups. Excellent product!

This, for me, has become my HG Summertime bronzer. Bronzer is a tricky thing for me and my (very pale, leaning cool) skintone.This one, is near perfect. While Laguna is too brown and muddy on me, Irresistiblement - while leaning quite peachy - really brightens up my complexion.

I can detect no shimmer in this, but I do feel it looks terrible as a contour. I much prefer this as something I can use to bronze all over, and use something more plummy like MAC Strada to actually sculpt. The best way I've found to apply this is with the RealTechniques Multitask brush with the purple handle; I'll apply along cheekbones, nose, temple, side of my ears, and down my neck. Anything too dense, like a MAC#168 or Quo Angled Blush Brush just deposits too much in one area. As mentioned below, this plus Deep Throat is the power couple O & Laguna seem to be for everyone else.

For reference, I'm generally NW10, but closer to an NW15 at the moment. Foundation matches include BB Skin in Alabaster, Revlon CS Whipped in Ivory, Revlon PR in Ivory, MAC Studio Fix Powder in N3, MSFN in Light. TM matches include Alabaster Tint in Bobbi Brown & 01 in Stila. BB Creams include Missha Perfect Cover #13, skin79 Hot Pink, & GOSH in Sand 01.

This is the first bronzer I ever bought. I like how it's not too brown. I mostly use bronzers as blushes. This one is pretty subtle on my medium/dark olive skin. I wish it had a little more pigment. I really like the packaging and I think that it is very generously sized.

I bought this bronzer a year ago, I use it on daily basis and I have still more than half left!

I think this color is pretty much suitable for every skin tones. It gives you light tanned look if you use it lightly, for deeper look I use all over my face and then I also apply it along my cheek bones as blusher.

I have quite sensitive skin and I did not have any problem with this product.Another thing I like about this that it last on your skin for quite a long time.

I would recommend this, price is average for bronzer and it does last ages. Also, it comes with mirror which I like because bronzer I was using previously did not include one.

Overall, nice product worth a try!

When I buy a bronzer, I'm not looking for something that makes me look like I really got a tan. Instead, I just want something to "warm up" my face and give my skin a bit of natural looking color. I am NC20 (Nars Sheer glow in Deauville) and most bronzers look very obvious on me. This one, I am happy to report, looks amazing! I apply it with a light hand and it just warms up my face, helping me look a bit healthier. This bronzer is matte, which I also love. If you have had trouble finding a natural looking bronzer in the past, I highly recommend giving this one a try. I intend to repurchase!

I don't know why I purchased this, I guess I wanted to see what I was missing. As a bronzer, it was more like a setting powder on my NW45-50 skin tone. As a blush, it is pretty nice. It gives my skin a matte glow, which I love. But unfortunately I have blush in a similar tone that will give me the same effect, for much less. I will continue to use but I will not repurchase. I might recommend this to a friend but she is very pale and I think it would look muddy on her.

I love this because it gives such a warm, sunkissed look! As always, the quality of this blush is just as expected for a Nars product. Don't be scared of how orangey it looks in the pan, it is so beautiful once its applied.

Yay! A bronzer for the pale! If the widely praised brown bronzers leave you looking like you emerged from a dirt bath (I'm looking at you, Hoola) you might want to try Irresistiblement. This is great for that "bronzer as a blush" look. Actually, I imagine this would be more like a neutral blush on darker skin tones. It's pigmented, but not difficult like some ultra pigmented stuff. Used lightly and heavily blended it doesn't even really give a tanned effect, just a healthy looking warmth. I'm kind of paranoid about breaking out from it since some others seem to have had issues, but *knock on wood* so far so good. Looks great alone or with a pop of blush on top. I think this looks lovely with Deep Throat (for me, Irresistiblement and DT are the power couple that Laguna and Orgasm seem to be for everyone else). Be careful though, too much can tip you from warm terracotta to orange territory. Also, proceed with an extra light hand if you plan on wearing this under office lighting (yikes! it looks fantastic in natural light though).

Last I checked, orange and peach were in the same category.... I'm gonna try this out for a week or so and then rate it properly.

EDIT: Omg, epic fail!!!! While this is an incredibly unique-colored bronzer, people with sensitive skin beware---I just removed this bronzer after only one day of wearing it, and my skin is all red, bumpy, itchy and irritated everywhere that I applied the bronzer. Going back to Sephora!! I knew Nars products were pretty toxic, but I didn't know they were this bad!
