how is Gina and Gilda. I am thinking of getting those soon.Last year the NARS site had a 30% off sale and I went a little crazy on the blushes. I got and I love:
I already had Taj Mahal. I think I will be adding Torrid while the Sephora F&F Sale is going on.
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.Gina and Gilda looked ashy on my NW47 skin.
I tried them out this summer at Nordies.... I may give it another try. Please update me with how they look on you.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.
Thank you for such a great review. I am definitely going to give these another try! Thanks!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!
