Absolutely love this product. I'm a big Nars fan but was sceptics that this would suit me. I'm a ppp cool toned as use this as a bronzer with the nars bronzer brush. I can now have a golden glow too!

Love this blush! It's stunning on my pale yet warm skin. It appears very peach once applied, which threw me for a loop because it doesn't look so peach in the pan, but it really is gorgeous. I like the subtle shimmer in Nars blushes too. They almost act like a highlighter and blush in one. So far, I own Orgasm, Desire, and Luster and Luster is by far my favorite of the three. It's very pigmented so be careful. The first time I applied it I really dove in to the pan because the color seems so understated but it's definately not...went a little overboard and had to start it over lol! It's pretty dang expensive, but will last ages so I definately recommend this if you are warm. Will rebuy!

This looks very scary in the pan, especially for someone like me (I have very pale skin). I am sorry i cant give a mac reference for my skin tone but i use revlon's colorstay in Ivory and it is about a half a shade darker than my actual skin tone... and this blush is just as flattering on me as deepthroat. I compare this to Doucier, on pale skin this is a very natural flush of color. I think this blush suits those with red or auburn in their hair fantastically but one complaint i do have is that it is not "sheer" as it it labelled as by Nars, it is actually the softest and most pigmented powder blush i own! you have to be very careful to build you're way up with this blush as its so soft, it is very easy to get too much on you're brush. I would definately reccomend, it looks very different on the skin like than it does in the pan.

Luster is an apricot brown rose shade with some shimmer. Works great on me in summer mostly (NC20-25) for warm looks (when I wear coral lips). It's also really nice as a blush to wear when rocking red lips. It's just lovely as it's not too bright. For some it could be too warm.

This blush is AMAZING! I have only had it for a few days, but I can already tell it is a favorite. Highly pigmented, a satin apricot in color, and incredibly natural on my very pale warm toned skin. When I put a swatch on my hand it doesn't look a thing like it does on my cheeks...it sort of just looks like a light golden highlighter, but on my face it is a warm apricot with a slight gold sheen. It is pricey, but if you can afford it, it is well worth it in my opinion. I use a very small amount at a time because the pigmentation is so good. Definitely a winner for me.

Don't let Luster fool you. It looks like a highlighter in the pan, but it is definitely a blush, and a beautiful one at that. How it could look like a gold highlighter and come out as a peach pink blush, more on the peach, is unbelievable to me. But such it is with Nars blushes, they all go on very suprisingly. I have NW20 skin and this shows up for sure, I tried Sin, Oasis, etc. and I just kept looking like a clown. This is NOT less pigmented, it is a more realistic color, i.e. not orange or pink overload. So you can apply with confidence that you won't look clownish and spend five minutes toning it down if you put a regular amount on your brush. With the other colors, or some, of Nars you have to be so careful to put very little on the brush.

I love Luster! My skintone is NW25 and Luster gives a light peachy bronze glow. This was actually the first NARS blush (of what us now many!) that I purchased as it is a "safe" kind of color. I cannot heap enough praise on NARS blush! Smooth, long lasting, nice color. Recommend highly. Folks with darker skintones may want to pass as Luster is not a very dark color. For the previous reviewer comparing this blush with a $1 bronzer-there is no comparison, Luster is far better color and quality.

Like usual, I saw a YouTube guru raving about this blush. I was skeptical in the sense that I hate NARS' Orgasm blush, and everyone else seems to love it. But I always go to pink blushes, so I thought for Spring/Summer I'd change it up with a peach. First time I wore it I thought it came out pure orange on my skin. I'm fairly pale (or was at the time). I got a bit of a tan and swiped this on my apples and it gave my face a beautiful glow. People were actually complimenting me on it. It has tiny gold shimmer but it's not the tacky shimmer; just gives a healthy appearance. I paid $29 CDN though, which is expensive in my eyes for a blush, but NARS blushes last forever. It has great staying power too. I think it would look beautiful on people with green eyes especially, but I have brown and it still works!

This is my first NARS blush and I luv it so much! on my pale NC20 skin it is a perfect glowy apricot color that does not mesh with the rosacea that I have on my cheeks. Its a beautiful natural summer blush for pale skinned girls. It is pricey but totally worth it, as it has great color payoff (if you are pale) so I feel like it will last forever. If I ever finish it, I would 100% repurchase it.

Would I buy again?? YES x a million!! I adore this blush! I am finally getting my head around what skin tone/undertones I have and as I have such flushed cheeks at times, pinks and anything with a red undertone can make me look like I'm on fire! It's took me a long to realise that! (I'm a bit slow to catch on!) Hence asking the lady at NARS to try this on me, something opposite to them colours. (I am NW20 in MAC and Nars Deauville in Sheer Glow for reference - pinkish undertones) I have light coppery brown hair and greeny blue eyes and WOW! This is incredible on me!! It makes me look so fresh and pretty in an understated way! The NARS lady also suggested I can add a touch of other blushes such as Deep Throat (which i already own) to add more colour on the odd occasion and this looks incredible too! I also add a light swipe of MAC's Peaches to the apples of my cheeks over Luster as a countour and wow! This looks so non-descript in the pan, but it is well worth a try! I'm not sure about other skin tones, as I'm rubbish at working it out (I'm 33 and I've only just sussed mine!)But if you fall into my catergory of colouring, please give it a try! Ihope you will love it as much as i do! xx
