Cartoon and aradhana - please stop making me lust for Luster. It sounds gorgeous.

when a mua at the nars counter applied luster on me, she put it on the tops of the cheekbones and up around the orbitals. it felt like she was putting it everywhere! then she applied taj mahal on the apples.  it looked really nice, and the luster added a very pretty glow.  


Gaiety does show up, but it's not a shocking pink. It's subdued on me and kind of a barely there, but I see it and it's pretty. It's great for a soft look. I cant help but to apply Luster everywhere either. It completes me. LOL!

Damned is too gorgeous for words. I love Nyx cream blushes. The only other high end cream blushes I have is MUFE HD ones. I really want Nars Cactus Flower, but I feel like I have too many dupes of that in powder form.


OK, I'm writing those colors down to check them out in store. If you're wearing the cream blushes under your powder blushes, then it seems like Cactus Flower would be great for you to get since it will match your powder blushes.

I will not help you to ignore Luster. You love a natural look, so you need Luster in your life. poke.gifx 100

That's true! I'll most likely end up getting it, just don't know if it'll be in the near future. You will love the cream blushes. A little goes a long way, too

I just bought Luster during beauty.com's 20% off sale and I ADORE IT! It gives the best glowy cheeks. I love highlighters but many of them are either extremely shimmery or with chunky glitter. Luster is perfect it just gives a glowy sheen; hard to describe but I Love it! Sorry, if I added to your lust but it is well worth it!

Isn't it the best??? While picking blushes I never thought about Luster until I saw several swatches and then on another blog several woc posted that it gave the best glow. I decided then to order it and I can't be any happier!!!

I've never even worn a highlighter, but your naughtiness has pushed me over the edge. Luster is officially on my list and will likely show up at my house in the next 3-6 weeks.

when the mua first put luster on me i loved it...and it kinda got me more into taj mahal as well, which i had been ignoring, but they compliment each other quite nicely.

Lol!!! I would say sorry but I think you'll love it....really I do. It looks blah in the pan and in most of the swatches Ive seen but on the cheeks it just radiates.

You would think Taj Mahal and Luster would be the first combo I tried. I'm off to pair them now. eyelove.gif

You're right, it's a beautiful pairing. I still need to get the cream blush to add it into the mix.

Nope. I don't have any cream blushes. I still need to stop by Ulta for the NYX cream blushes I want to try.

Get Luster. poke.gifx 100

 

Taos is a great choice. It's a beautiful color and very pigmented. However, I think you'll get a lot more usage out of Luster over Taos. You should still get Taos later.

post #319 of 469

Hi ladies, I"m new to the forum but not new to Nars powder blushes. I have the following powder blushes:

 

Dolce Vita

Luster

Exhibit A

Taj Mahal

Mounia

 

I wear Dolce Vita and Exhibit A the most. DV is my go to everyday blush. I've been using Mounia quite often lately. I use Luster as a highlight on my dark skin. I use the color Trinidad in Nars Sheer Glow Foundation and Polynesia in the Nars Radiance TM. 

post #320 of 469

Hi I need some suggestions for blushes. I own Liberte and Dolce Vita already and have my eyes on Lovejoy and Seduction. I'm unsure on Lovejoy if it'll show up on me. I'm a NC50 for reference. Any other suggestions are welcome.

Gilda

What would you describe Gilda as on brown skin? Anywhere I could find swatches?

Coral with a subtle red undertone. Not orangey at all.
I don't know right off where it's swatched on darker skin online. It's a nice blush, makes a healthy glow, no shimmer. I like to wear it with MAC fix+ which gives it more dimension.

I own love joy and it shows up on my nw45 skintone. I do use a heavier amount compared to Dolce Vita, Torrid and Taj Mahal where a light tap is all you need. I also adore Torrid which is a coral, pink shade.

You're just a shade darker than me. My absolute favorite blushes are Lovejoy, Gina and Taj Mahal. LJ is gorgeous, goes with just about any look and you won't need a lot to get the color to show. Gina is a beautiful peach that adds a natural glow and goes great with coral, orange or natural lip colors. Taj Mahal is a beautiful burn orange and that can be used in many, many ways. You can't go wrong with any of those.

You might like torrid. It's a coral/pink with shimmer. Screams Summer to me.
