    I see on Nars website it has Crazed blush as "Exclusive" Currently Unavailiable" Im assuming that means coming back in stock soon, right ?? I cant wait to order it . . . . along with a few other blushes

    OR

    Does it mean I missed out on it ??????

    I just started wearing blush recently and I wan't to jump onto the NARS bandwagon but I don't know where to start. I also think the price is causing my hesitation.

    What color family of eyeshadows/lippies do you wear most often?

    I usually have a neutral eye. Purple and green when I feel like color that day. I always have a nude lip. I haven't adventured out on color when it comes to my eyeshadow or lips yet. I'm still unclear on what shades are good on my NC50 skintone. I own MA from wonder woman and use MUFE #131 and #48 as a blush as well.

    97.8% of the NARS blushes will look good on all WOC. Its really just a matter of preference! I own 3 NARS blushes, Gilda, Gina, and Taos. Those are my favorite. I also want Exibit A (its extremely colorful) one day.

    If you can, try to check out the offerings at a NARS counter instead of Sephora. Sephora doesn't carry all the blushes.

    Tried and True HG products: M.A.C Face and Body, MUFE Camo Cream #20, Ben Nye Banana Powder, MAC 208 brush, Wet and Wild Mega Eyes Cream Eyeliner, MAC 168 brush, MAC fix+, NARS Smudgeproof Eyeshadow Primer

    NARS blushes are pricey but sooo worth it! The pigmentation is so good you need very little to get it to show up. And of course you can build up the color to your satisfaction.

    I have NARS blushes (so far) in Cactus Flower, Mata Hari, Angelika and Oasis. I don't have Torrid or Gilda as I have the MAC MA blush.

    I dragged one of my girlfriends to Sephora to get blush and she got Taos. It looks so good with her warm skin tone. Exhibit A looks beautiful--hope you get it soon so we can see how it looks on you.

    [/quote] Mounia is on the official Nars site. Get your hands on it b/c it's amazing. I own Lovejoy, Sertao, Mounia, Angelika, Desire, Gina and Crazed. All of them are fantastic. Lovejoy is an every day blush and Sertao serves as a highlighter for me. Gina is my absolute favorite.

    Since you're a neutral/nude girl, I suggest you start off with Luster blush and Albatross highlighter. You might also want to try Dolce Vita blush. You can reach for these on a daily basis, and they'll provide a pop of color that would still blend in with your neutral eye and nude lip.

    I'm NW50, and I own those 3 that I suggested (among other Nars products, lol). And I get tons of comments about how good my "skin" looks --> not makeup, but "skin". I agree with sss215. For whatever reason, most of NARS blushes look AMAZING on WOC. I swear Francois puts brown girl pixie dust in every single one. (The few that don't are too bland/brown like Doceur or don't show up like Orgasm on darker skin tones.) If you're feeling adventurous, you can't go wrong with Desire or Taj Mahal or Exhibit A or ANY, lol.

    That pic was gorgeous! I have Montenegro on my wish lists at Beauty.com and Sephora.com . Hoping I can get my hands on it early next month.

    If I don't find it at the store I'm going to do a joint order with my sister so we can get free shipping and have it sent to the house in NYC. Either way I will have it. I think I will take a look at Montenegro today at the new larger Sephora at my local mall.

    Hi ladies! I'm new here, but I thought I'd see if you could help me out with a blush dilemma. MAC Sur has been my HG blush since it came out in January - I love the natural look it gives me. But now that it's summer (at least it is here in the South!), I've started to get a bit darker than my normal NC45, and the blush is showing up muddy I'm looking for something that's similar - anyone have any recommendations? I love NARS blushes, their texture and pigmentation is awesome (I used NARS Dolce Vita before Sur, but it shows up reddish on my skin tone and I'm looking for something more rosy pink).

    Hey ladies!

    Yesterday I got the NARS Montenegro blush delivered (I love you Beauty.com!). Here's a photo of it (taken w/ flash) ...complete with markings from my stippling brush:



    This is such a lovely deep berry red blush. A little goes a long way and if you have cool undertones it looks very natural. And of course you can build up the color if you want it to look bolder.

    Hiya!

    The rosy pink that I have is Mata Hari. There is one that is more candy rose pink called Desire which I think would show up more rosy pink on your skin tone. I passed on Dolce Vita for Oasis as that has more of a pink shimmer to it. Just for reference, here's a pic of the NARS blushes I have as I tend to go towards rose/pinks:



    Clockwise from top: Angelika, Montenegro, Oasis, Mata Hari, Cactus Flower

    Funny, when I live in LA it was hot all the time so I stayed an NW45. Moved to the northeast and even in the summer I'm still an NW43. I go to visit relatives in Florida in the summer and I have to bring my NW45 foundation as one day in the Florida sun and 'poof' I'm browner. ;-)

    EngineerBarbie: that Montenegro cream brush is sooo gorgeous even in the pan. I new it was special when I saw that pic in ELLE I posted earlier about. I'm glad you are enjoying it. I get newsfeeds generated on my blog to keep me in touch with what is currently going on in makeup and the latest word is that it's al about the cheeks!! I think I was feeling the style current pulling there anyways, maybe it's the ebb and flow of fashion, maybe the subliminal messaging from the Fall NY Fashion shows .... beautiful naturally flushed cheeks with a bit more umph! :-)

    thanks! I'll definitely try out Mata Hari and Desire. Your collection of NARS blushes is pretty - I really like the look of Montenegro! but I'm afraid a cream blush will just melt off my face in the hot humidity here

    Thanks! Glad I could help. I forgot to mention the cream blush actually turns to powder so with the humidity it shouldn't be a problem. I'm headed to Florida in July so I'm going to 'road test' Montenegro (and Cactus Flower as they are both cream blushes) and see how they do in the crazy Florida heat.

    That pic in ELLE (and Free Shipping for $25+ orders from Beauty.com) is what made me finally get off the sidelines and buy it. I'd been eying it for awhile but hadn't seen it in person and was worried. Perhaps it is the style trend now--I didn't get into blushes until fall of last year.

    And Montenegro gives such a beautiful flush! If NARS ever discontinues this color they're getting hate mail from me.

    Taos is gorgeous! I want Torrid and Taj Mahal next and wish they would repromote Crazed. I don't think anybody has a color like it in another line.

    I just love blush and have collected almost all of the shades from NARS that complement WOC. I thought I had them all until I discovered Mounia from reading this thread. I ordered it from NARS.com and fell in love when I saw it in person. Simply beautiful....goes well with the rest of my collection.
