This was my first ever cream blush from Nars and it obviously has that special place in my heart :)
Anyhow onto the review, the color is a soft, muted pink, almost nude color. I see slight shimmer in the pan but see non when applied. I am quite pale in the winter (NC20) and have to apply multiple layers to get the color to my liking. I find this blush doesn't travel and it seems to set to a powdery finish. The downside, it doesn't seem to last very long. If your planning on this blush holding up all day your going to be disappointed. If I use this, I take it and my brush in my purse. I love Nars packaging and usually love the blushes but this one isn't that special. I find it looks exactly like Lilicent from Mac. The only difference is that Lilicent is more dewy looking and sticky. Would I repurchase, if I did not own the Mac one & this then yes.
Update: After getting some sun the past few weeks I am now using my NW25 concealer, anyway I tried using Penny Lane yesterday to run to the store and I could literally not even see it at all. I ended up putting Mac's Joie-de-vivre over it and leaving the house. I'm thinking if your much darker than NC20 ish, this will be too light.
