This is a beautiful colour and works with all skin tones. This is highly pigmented so use a light hand when applying. I like to use my fingers and lightly tap on. Wears well and does not dry the skin out.

beautiful peachy colour, very nice with my NC15 complexion. It is not shimmery and it does not leave streaks. Easy to apply. Only downsides: very pricey for the tiny amount of product and does not last all day.

I received this as an RAOK, but I would definitely buy it again if I ever ran out.
Nectar is a matte peach/nude blush on me (~NC30-35, Asian, EDM Sandy Medium). It is really perfect for those days when I don't want to look like I'm obviously wearing a colored blush, but I want to put some color to light up my otherwise sallow complexion. While it has a matte finish, it has enough dimension to look fabulously glowy on my skin, and not flat at all. I look happy and alive wearing this.
The texture on this blush is fabulous. It is silky, easy to pick up with a brush and easy to blend. It is pigmented enough, but not sooo pigmented that you have to be careful with it. I use EcoTools f/s blush brush and blend out with the f/s powder brush.
I love the packaging on Laura Mercier products. It is elegant, sturdy, practical and very compact. I also love the idea that I can pop it out of the compact and into her larger compacts to pair with other products.

Got this in a swap. It looks really light in the compact, and I have to use quite a bit to get the desired effect, but its worth it. gives me a really pretty, spring-time, English rose glow. Its just the perfect balance of peach with light pink. very blendable and sheer. just wish the container was a bit bigger, so i could swirl my brush better
will definitely be trying other LM blushes in the future
EDIT: i think this product is the culprit in breaking me out across my cheeks! ive been getting little red blemishes all over, and generally have very even, blemish free skin.

LM blushes are very luxurious. They are smooth, soft, and apply effortlessly, no streaking, no fading. This color is a peach, with no pink tones. It has minimal small shimmers, but is not all shimmer, nor is it glittery like Nars blushes. It is a warm color, but not muddy or brown - a true warm peach. I am a PPP and this looks very nice on. I tend to stick with cream blushes more, but will continue to purchase LM powder blushes because the quality is like no other. This hasn't caused any breakouts either.

Natural peach blush! This blush looks sooo pretty and natural with my complexion (red hair, freckles, some redness in my skin). It doesn't give me that irritated look that pink blush can sometimes give me on a dry skin day, or that dirty look that brown based peaches can give. It is a true peach and the best summer blush I've used. It IS pigmented, on my FAIR skin. If you have darker skin, this probably won't show up that well. If you're not sure, try before you buy! There is shimmer in the pan but on my face, it appears matte. Lasts for hours, and is buildable. Can also be used as a "bronzer" for people who've had trouble finding a bronzer color that matches their skin well.

I really liked the color, but it didnt really show up on my skin (I wear a #5 LM foundation). I had to use ALOT just for it to show up. I finished the container way too fast for the price.
I switched to BE blush, a little seems to go a long way with theirs.
Age: 36-43 Skin: Acne-prone, Fair Hair: Brunette Eyes: Blue
Fabulous color! I've always worn cool tones and NEVER would have tried anything peachy on my own. However, a makeup artist recommended this for me and I love it! Very natural, especially if I have a tan (but still good even if I've been wearing my sunblock). Hooray for getting me away from pinks!

I like this blush a lot because it is very natural looking. I don't really like the sparkle that LM puts in it, but it is nice because it hasn't broken me out. it applies nicely too. it never leaves a streak or tell-tale sign of blush on the cheeks. Cute little container too.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
Beautiful, peachy color. I love it! Not too shimmery. It's kind of expensive ($22) for the tiny square of blush that you get, though.
Note: I had a terrible allergic reaction to this stuff! Had to return! Aah

Wish I could click an "undecided" on buying again. While this is a lovely color, it barely shows up on me for some reason, and I'm pretty fair (I think). I have to use a lot to get any color payoff. That hasn't been true for me with other LM blushes, so maybe it's just this color. For reference, I'm fairish/mediumish with greenish undertone.

I was using the NARS Orgasm blush over South Beach Multiple but the color just did not suit me. It was an odd pinkish shimmer that required a lot of blush. The Nectar adds the perfect amount of colour in one application, two if I want more a pop. It's a natural peachy pink flush on me - and definitely the texture is so much better than any other blush I've used as well.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Dry, Olive Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
I love this blush and adds a nice pop of color to the cheeks. I use a light hand because I think it can be a bit much if you are not careful and go over board. The color is a beautiful matte peach with a hint of pink, but definitely peach and not coral or pink. The texture of Laura Mercier blushes are also superb. They apply easily, and smoothly, and last all day. You should definitely check this color out the next time your at the LM counter. It is an easy color to overlook in the pan, but it is amazing on the skin.

An overlooked peach blush, I see. This is a superb product. When it's a matte peach I'm looking for, this is it. While it doesn't have anything shimmery to it that would usually be the key to a "glow," this actually does the job quite well. It's natural and fresh, but has enough pigment to keep it from fading quickly, even on my oily skin. When I'm not wearing my Scott Barnes' Samba Chic Palette, this is the one I turn to. Bought it for less than retail at bombshellbargains.com - $18 CAD, I believe.

This color gives me a natural flush when I don't wear foundation, but when I do, it hardly shows up on my light medium skin. I guess I need something with a little more pop so I will try BE fruit cocktail and see how that works for me. I do like LM blushes very much because you can build them for a natural look and they don't break me out. If I was a bit more fair I could really see this being my go-to blush so I will not buy again because it doesn't show up enough me.
Age: 36-43 Skin: Combination Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
This is a pretty matte peach blush that I am sure would great on a lot of people. For some reason I wasn't wowed by this blush on me (I am an NC 35). I think I have become used to havng shimmer in my blushes and more pigmentation, and this product doesn't deliver on that.

IM nc25/30 and this is my HG peachy powder blush. I was in harvey nicks y'day and i couldnt decide between mac and LM peach blush. I looked at the mac ones and they just seemed a bit bright. I then walked over to LM and this looked so natural and pretty- for ref, im quite pale and hate obvious blush, i like it to look soft and natural, esp in the day. This is wonderful, light peach fresh colour. However, its tiny! and £18....so a bit expensive! Thats why i took a lippie off. However, I think this will last me AGES as i dont wear blush ever day, let alone the same one so I doubt id have to re purchase this anytime soon. However if it ever smashed/got lost i def would! This is way better than nars orgasm, which i hated.

I'm fair with pink undertones (NW15-20). This blush is very peachy on me. This does not brighten up my face at all, to yellow. I will not repurchase.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination Hair: Brown Eyes: Green
I love this colour, the MA tried it on me and it scared me in the pan but looks great on. It is a peachy pink on my NW20/25 skin and it very soft and understated. I put this on with my stila 21 and it looks so natural. The only problem i have with these blushes is the packaging, the original nectar i bought fell out of the case the day after i bought it, LM blush packaging is rubbish considering the price.

UPDATED: One of my HG blush! I'm fair with pink undertones on my cheeks NW15. This brightens up my face and gives me the natural glowy look. Blends wonderful into face and color is pigmented enough to show up. It suits with every make-up. Color is bright peachy-coral-pink. If i compare this with Nars Orgasm: Nectar is lighter, more coral-peachy and not shimmery like Orgasm. Both of them is enough different to have both. But definitely Nectar looks more natural. I have a pic of this on my profile. I also have apricot face tint, which is more pigmented and pinkier than nectar. Nevertheless i like nectar much more. This one looks great on my cooler skin tone with freckles(a little, shows up more in summer).. Would repurchase.
