This was my first high end blush and I'm really glad I picked it up. It's rather unassuming as I feel like not many people talk about it and the color isn't spectacular in the pan. I picked it up because of a youtuber (essiebutton) and the good reviews here and I knew I didn't want to get Orgasm or Deep Throat because I have way too many similar colors.
Let me tell you, this looks amazing on me. I have reddish brown hair, very fair skin, freckles, and blue eyes and this looks so natural, glowy, and just... AMAZING. It's super pigmented and finely milled.
This is my go-to blush color for every day. It goes with every look. I will totally repurchase this when I finish this, which will be a long time from now considering you need very little product for this to show up.

A few years ago I was looking for a blush that would really work for me. I didn't want to settle. I knew all about Orgasm and Super Orgasm, but they looked way too pink on my NW25 skin. I found Luster and have never looked back! This golden, peachy apricot shade is just perfect for my skin. I love the delicate flecks of shimmer that add a sheen on my cheeks.

NARS is really the gold standard for blush. They have a wonderful array of shades that should suit all complexions and the product goes on so smoothly and beautifully. I really don't like blush that looks too strong against the skin. I want a natural color that will enhance my skin and warm it up. Luster delivers on all counts!

This is my HG blush. I don't need any other color. It works all year round. In the summer I can use my Laguna bronzer with this blush for a sofly radiant look.

My search has ended and Luster is the perfect blush for me.

Don't let this color fool you, it can look good on any skin tone. I am very pale and typically wear pinks or peachy pinks but this color look awesome on me. It has a warm, apricot tone that seems to work with your own skin tone to create your personal Luster look. I could apply it to three different people and it would look like three different blushes. This is my daily blush for fall :)

On my fair, warm toned skin, this shade is incredibly flattering. It is not too orange and it just gives me a look of good health. I love it.

A beautiful peachy color with gold highlight in it. It looks so gorgeous on and makes my cheeks look luminous. I can't go out without at least applying this blush and mascara

This product is amazing. When swatched, it appears to look like a light coral with a golden sheen, perfect for a highlighter. However, when applied to the face, that's when the coral really pops. My skin is medium at NC30, but I think this would be a fantastic colour for most skin types, as it is a blush and a highlighter in one, without overdoing either. I can't believe they only have it available at full NARS counters in department stores and not at Sephora. It is super underrated. Highly recommend this product!!

As an asian with nc25 skin, Luster works great on me. It is peachy with some sheen to it. I normally use it for day time as the bronzy tone looks sporty. It's like the sun hits me at the right place. I would switch to another blush like Dolce Vita or Orgasm for night. I highly recommend Luster and I would buy it over and over. As expected of Nars blushes, the quality is good and it is long lasting. With just these 3 blushes, (although I have almost all of Nars' blushes), I am all set.

This blush is absolutely incredible. Unlike the cult favourite Orgasm blush, this blush is very smooth and such a nice, fine texture. It is a pretty light colour, so it is hard to over due. I personally like to pack on this blush, but sometimes I do like the natural 1-2 sweeps of this on each cheek and it looks gorgeous. It's a really nice peachy colour with gold in it, and on my skin, it has that very teeny little tinge of pink on it so it doesn't just look, bleh. However, if you are looking for a peach blush, give this one a shot because it is definitely much more of a peach than a pink. There are some shimmers in this too, which I personally like because it's kind of like a highlighter in one. At the same time, I can imagine myself using this in the winter where a bronzer might seem too much for me and I can use this on my cheeks but add a little bit of contour as well, since I'm into lazy people products :). It is pricey especially since it was $36 dollars (tax included) or so in Canada, but I personally think it's very well worth it, because I love it so much. I love NARS packaging even if it gets dirty easily, it's very sleek and kind of makes me feel a little more 'glam' if I take this out in public to use the compact mirror because I find it very handy too! I own a lot of other NARS blushes, but this is definitely the one that I reach for all the time.

NARS website describs the colour as “golden apricot”, and they’re absolutelyly right. It’s perfect for my NW25 skintone.

I was collecting NARS blush, and this was one of those that I was delaying in getting as I was judging it from the pan. I eventually bought it, and I’ve been wearing it most of the summer. It gives me “the glow from within” that I always wanted.

On me, it leans a little pink and looks nothing like the pan. If you are planning to buy it, I recommend that you try it in person instead of looking online.

Just like any NARS blush, this one lasts about eight hours, but doesn’t fade patchy like some NARS blushes, and I love that.

AMAZING! The perfect shade for either dark or light skin tones. It is very versatile and would work in either summer or winter. In summer, it adds to a tan but in the winter it is a very natural color. Like all NARS blushes, it gives off a luminous glow that has yet to be duped in my opinion!
