I am a peach blush addict and I am so happy to have this in my collection after nearly a year of lusting (no pun intended!) after it. This is a gorgeous warm apricot with gold shimmer; it's absolutely stunning. Really brightens my face and you don't need to add an highlighter with this because it is so luminous on its own. Smooth texture, easy to blend, fabulous pigmentation, and lasts alllllll day.

I was disappointed with this blush for my skintone (nc25). All the hype wasn't worth it and I find I don't tend to grab for it in the morning. The colour payoff isn't that great and the colour isn't that great either. Try in Sephora before making an online purchase.

I wavered on buying Luster for years because whenever I looked at it in the pan, I didn't think there was any way it would work for me - it's a warm, almost terracotta shade that I thought for sure would be too much for my pasty (NC15-20) skin. But I'm glad I took a chance and tried it, since on my cheeks it turns into a beautiful glowing peach with gold shimmer. It's a tad more orange than other peach shades I own (Chanel Reflex, NARS Deep Throat) but it's definitely not too orange, and it's pigmented enough to show up on most skin tones. I like wearing it with a simple wash of gold eye shadow and peachy-orange gloss.

For reference I'm a nc45. I use luster as a highlighter along my cheekbones when I'm using my matte bronzer. I use a very light hand and apply it using Bobbi Brown's sheer brush. If I get too heavy-handed it will emphasize my pores and that's not cool at all. I then blend out using my stippling brush. Viola....I have a glow without looking like a a cheap disco ball.

I bought this about a month ago and have rarely touched another blush since. The shimmer is not overly done but still shows. I have very fair skin and it is a great peachy pink, leaning much more on the peach side. The formula is perfect, not flaky or chalky at all.

This is my HG, go-to blush! I absolutely love the color of it - I use it every single day, but it's especially great in the summer when I'm a little bit more tan. This will definitely give you a fabulous glow to your cheeks, and it's a great investment! The packaging is also really nice, it's very compact and small but gives a lot of product. LOVE this!

It is my first NARS blush and I really like it, I've been wearing almost everyday since I bought it! The only down side for me it's because I'm very pale (MAC N15) I don't think it looks good on photos, it doesn't show up. But I can say for sure it's one of my favorite blushes!

I like this blush but it just isn't the color for me im a NC25 I use this to contour. The pigment is really nice though

This is my first Nars blush and I am happy to say that I am in love with it! I didn't want to buy Orgasm or Deep Throat because I felt that they were too overrated and not that special so I swatched a bunch of the blushes and finally chose this one. It is a pretty peachy and subtle gold blush that is perfect for spring and summer! I'll be rocking this baby until I eventually find a new blush to obsess over. I am NC25 but I'm sure it will look amazing on any skin tone. I will definitely be checking out the other blush colors that Nars has to offer.

This is my go-to blush. Despite being a light, almost neutral color in the pan, it applies almost peachy pink on my complexion. It's such a beautiful, flattering, brightening color that's perfect for every day use.
The thing that I love most about this blush is that it's incredibly versatile; it flatters an every-day makeup look, yet compliments a very sleek and sexy dramatic look. I've had this blush for almost 2 years and have yet to hit pan (I've used it almost every day). For reference, my shade in Mac hovers around NC30 in the winter, and NC35-40 in the warmer months.
While NARS blushes are pricey, I would still recommend and continue to purchase simply because they are so pigmented. Yes they're an investment, but they will last you forever. I recommend NARS blushes to my friends who also share an interest in makeup.
