    Mine arrived yesterday.
    It is very soft and shimmery, but it is VERY light. It's pretty much a straight up highlighter. Not seeing how anyone can use it as a blush.
    I think I might be returning. It's much, much lighter than I was expecting.
    Now Hot Tin Roof on the other hand....is GORGEOUS!!!!! That's the red liquid blush. OMG-I did not expect to love it as much as I do.

    No! It looked so pink on her finger. Awesome that you love the red liquid blush. It looked too much on the brick red side for me - is it in real life?

    It does look pink in all the swatches I've seen but IRL it's very light. The closest comparison I can make is to Urban Decay Aura. I wanted it to be a shimmery light pink blush, but it was a straight up highlighter. It is beautiful, but just not what I was looking for or hoping for.
    Now, the liquid blush-It is brick red, but when you apply it and blend it out it is just beautiful and natural-I love it. I had been looking for a brick red, everything I seem to find is more candy apple red, so I grabbed this figuring I'd try it and return it if I hated it. But it's amazing. You only need a tiny bit. It blends incredibly well into skin and looks amazing.

    I'm really interested in the liquid blush. do you think it would work for someone who is pale?

    I think it would because although it is brick red, this formula blends so beautifully.
    I'm light-Gobi in Nars Luminous, and I love it!

    Got the blush/highlighter this morning & I do really like it. Yep, it's not really a blush but a slight pink cast highlight. It looks really lovely & glowy on my skin.I'm debating about the liquid blush now.

    I guess this collection is a pass for me. While the liquid blush looks very pretty, I don't like purchasing emollient color products because of the size of my collection. Eventually I'd have to toss it without being anywhere near finishing it.

    That makes a lot of sense. Some things remain untouched for ages.

    NARS seems to have the slowest shipping ever. My products shipped yesterday and are due to be delivered on Monday. They’re only going from OH to PA. WTH?

    I usually don’t order from them either, but I’m so impatient to have this stuff, and I got burned last year missing the Charlotte Gainsbourg matte lip pencil (London Clinic).

    On that note, if anyone has a backup they’d like to part with, please just let me know. Still very much interested and have been watching eBay.

    The shipping gods were with me - my NARS products arrived yesterday!!

    I only swatched them on my hand but first impressions......the Summer Fire lip glide is a really pretty and I think it will be pretty on any skin tone.

    The Hot Tin Roof liquid blush is super pigmented. I used a dot and blended it on my hand and it was definitely enough to cover at least one cheek...maybe both. I was very happy to see it wasn’t as red as I thought. Not sure how to best to describe it...brick, burnt terra-cotta. It’s warm but still neutral enough to wear with a variety of lip colors. I’m planning on wearing it tomorrow but not sure if I’ll be able to get an accurate read on the color - I had microneedling on Friday and I still look like I have sunburn.

    Awesome! Last time I checked, mine got pushed back to Friday. SO mad. Reminded me why I don’t shop with them.

    Hot Tin Roof simulates what a rosacea flush looks like on me, so looking at that pic of Sabrina literally makes my cheeks hurt.

    Does anyone know when the Danger Control palette goes on sale? Sephora still shows it as coming soon.

    BTW...LOVE LOVE LOVE the Hot Tin Roof liquid blush. It gives me a really pretty natural flush. I'll be getting a lot of use out of this.

    I think Sabrina applied it with a really heave hand. I'm much lighter than her and it doesn't look like that on me. I apply a little with a damp Beauty Blender and it looks natural. It is super pigmented so you have to be careful when applying.
