I love this color! After wanting to try it for ages, my heart sank when I opened the compact: staring back at me from the pan was a brick-colored, very warm terracotta. Not only am I very fair, I am also pretty cool-complected -- and Sex looked way too dark and warm for me. That said, I did not have high hopes about it working, but to my complete surprise, it does: applied lightly, using a MAC …Read more

I am surprised I didn't review this sooner! I "re-discovered" it while shopping through my stash this morning. In the pan its a little intimidating..a brick reddish orange. But applied, with a light hand, it gives me the perfect rosy bronze flush..not too brown not too red and definitely not orange on my NC30-35 skin tone. This blush totally makes me look awake and perky! I …Read more

Darker skinned ladies, this is the blush to have if you can find it!!
I am NW45/NC50 and this is a warm rich terracotta shade on me. The texture is very smooth and great colour payoff. This blush and a nice neutral lip gloss (MAC VGV or Nars Cabiria) is the way to go! Perfect for work, a date or a night out. You simply can't go wrong with this one.

Discontinued shade. Sex is a matte, deep terracotta shade with reddish undertones, just like orange clay terracotta pots when they're damp. Sex is the darker sister of Passion. Passion suits me very well, but Sex is a bit much for my AAB/NC25 skintone - looks like bad orange bronzer on me, unfortunately. Wonderfully pigmented, typical high quality of NARS, but not the shade for me :(

I love love love this blush--I can't believe that Nars would discontinue such a beautiful flattering color (good thing Laura Gellar Golden Apricot is a perfect dupe ;-) This blush is appropriately named as it is pure sex on me--a matte terracotta blush that makes me glow and look like a sexy beach bunny. This is hands down my favorite Nars blush so far. I have to apply it with a MAC 187 …Read more

I opened the compact to a muddy/russet/terracotta shade and was pleasantly surprised! This was the shade that I was looking for. It is so flattering on my NC35/Asian skin. It has the perfect amount of warmth and depth and it's matte as well. I could imagine this looking bad on some paler or cooler skintones. But it's definitely worth a try. One of my new favorite NARS blushes (along …Read more

I probably bought this in 1999 or 2000 and am only getting around to reviewing it now. I've probably only used it less than 10 times too in that span of 5 years. It's just too hard to wear and doesn't flatter my NC25/Buff Beige skin even if I apply lightly. It's a matte orangey-terra cotta both in the pan and on. Highly pigmented of course. It's my least favorite of …Read more

This is georgous! Get some if you can find it... although it might be too much color for the fairest skins. It really is a beautiful shade.

I love this color. It is a perfect terracotta blush. Great for an earthy look. I only wish it included a brush.
