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.
 
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. 
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.

i think Im debating between taos, outlaw and lovejoy...I've seen swatches of torrid and i feel like i have similar blushes...what does everyone think of seduction
I agree. Torrid is a very pretty color for spring or summer. I also favor Liberte.

Seduction is very pretty raspberry. Between Taos, Outlaw and Lovejoy, I would probably pick Lovejoy. If you like wearing bright eyes and/or lips fr your spring and summer makeup, Lovejoy would be a nice blush to wear to go with any look.

I finally picked up NYX cream blushes in Orange and Hot Pink. Now I'll see if I like cream blushes and will experiment with layering powder blush on top. I'll try Orange and Taj Mahal first.

I've been meaning to pick up NYX Hot Pink. My BFF did my face for my birthday last year and used it as a lipstick on me.

I posted in the other NARS thread but I'm still at a crossroad between Gina and Gilda. Help!

Keep in mind though that not all cream blushes are created equal. I have NYX Cream blushes and while they are nice, my Restores Dazzle Cremeblend blush by MAC may be just a tad bit better. As a matter of fact, I need to wear my NYX cream blushes more. I think I have like 3 of them. I don't wear makeup everyday so I have many things that get neglected.


I guess what I'm really trying to say is if NYX are the first cream blushes you're trying and you don't like them, don't let them discourage you from trying another brand of cream blush.
