    NARS blushes for WOC

    I think NARS blushes are beyond beautiful and I want
    more but I dont know which ones to get. I have Taj Mahal
    and albatross so far

    So what are some others that you love and why?

    I'm anxious to try NARS blushes as well, and have heard that Torrid is the WOC's Orgasm. I can't speak on it though as I haven't tried it myself. Lovejoy is also on my list. I want to try Illamasqua's blushes as well, I've heard great reviews about those too. Maybe someone else can offer some more insight ?

    Last year the NARS site had a 30% off sale and I went a little crazy on the blushes. I got and I love:

    Exhibit A
    Gilda
    Gina

    I already had Taj Mahal. I think I will be adding Torrid while the Sephora F&F Sale is going on.

    I already have MAC Pro Blush Apple Red . . . . how does that compare to Exhibit A ?? Is there enough difference between the two blushes to justify having both ????

    Well, i think that Apple Red is more of a "True Red", meaning it is more of a blue based red. However, Nars Exhibit A has a very evident orange undertone... It is a Red-Orange... I think you can justify having both by the undertone difference, but that's just my opinion. Hope this is helpful

    yup, cactus flower is one of the first cream blushers I owned as well. I love it so much that I hit pan on that one and I have back-up.

    I have Lovejoy, Exhibit A, Dolce Vita, and Sin. Sin is the only one I don't wear. Its a bit too plum for me and doesn't show up well. My fave is the Lovejoy. That's my perfect blush.

    really, i am going to try these soon. i am excited because i am going to scope out a regular NARS counter in the process. sephora's selection isn't cutting it anymore.
    out of the 2, i think gilda would be awesome for darker skin since it has a bit of pink in it.

    I tried them out this summer at Nordies.... I may give it another try. Please update me with how they look on you.

    Back from trying them out. What got me interested in these colors is the fact that I don't want red or pink cheeks all the time. Or deep colored cheeks. I wanted something lighter. For anyone my complextion, Gina and Gilda are not colors to get if you want a bright blush. They are more of a compliment to my skin tone and are perfect if I want to do an eye focus, or just add a sweep of color. IMO These colors on darker skin are skin brighteners. They are neutral, but not brown based, which is the usual neutral go to for black women. They are matte, which I like.

    First I tried the Sheer Matte foundation in Tortuga, just so my skin would be more of a canvas for trying on these new colors. Sometimes its hard to see accurate blush results when I put them on in the store with nothing on my skin.

    I tried on Gilda, next it brightened me up immediately. Gilda turned out to be a very neutral, wearing makeup but not made up blush on me. I have yellow undertones on my cheeks which go away when I put foundation on, Gilda gave me a nice flush of coral. Not too pink or yellow, just brightness. My skin looked fresh.

    Then I tried Gina on the other cheek. I was thinking it was going to look ashy, but nope, it blended well. What Gina did was bring a little of my natural undertone back. Like Gilda, it brought a brightness back to my skin, but on the yellowish orange side. I really liked Gina, because it blended well and just like Gilda, freshened me up a bit. Gina was not as pigmented as Gilda, but I could see the results.

    Next I tried Amour. It really looked like the next color in line after Gilda. It was pinker than the two and i think it would be another good option later down the line. Gina and Gilda seem to be the most unique blushes NARS offers in compared to other brands. Today I hauled Gilda. I saw some online deals, so I will haul Gina next with a few other NARS items. Crazy Sephora doesn't have these!
