Love them


The MUA at Nars was explaining to me how different shades of blush go with different shades of lipstick and eye colors. Wow, I have alot to learn!

For those that are familar with Nars can you name your fav blush and what look you think goes best?

I have Deep Throat and Orgasm. Deep Throat is best worn with smokey eye and nude lips. Orgasm is best worn with pink lippies and lighter eye makeup. This is what I was told at the Nars counter. Do you all agree? How do you wear your favorite Nars blushes?

I am thinking about getting LoveJoy and Outlaw next. Any suggestions appreciated!

Angelika, it's a hot pink/fuschia color. I like darker colors because you can vary the intensity.

I have only tried Orgasm and I didn't like it. I gave it away.

I don't go by what kind of eye look I have but I try to match my blush to my lipstick
I used to have Sin but got rid of it thinking I broke out from it. But I found out later on that I am not so I ordered it again.
I like ordering stuff when department stores have gift with purchase

I've only bought Sin and I'm almost finished with it - I love it. Orgasm is too orangey on me.

I have Mata Hari, it's a matte candy pink. I usually prefer matte blush so I can choose where the shimmer goes. I have Orgasm too, which I wear in the evenings because on me it's a bit full on for daytime use.

i dont choose my blush according to my eye look tho, so dont be limited by what the MA said, just make sure your cheek/lip colour is in the same colour family xx

I agree!...I have all the colors now too, but there are some that don't work well with certain skintones...like there are some that work way better on darker skin and others that only look good on fairer skin.Do you have any pics of yourself greeneyedangel?

It has that effect on some ladies so you might want to try it next time you're in a department store that carries Nars.

Sin is not a purple color. It's a mauve-y / berry type color - but definitely not purple. It has subtle gold flecks in it.

I'm fair-skinned with dark hair and it looks great on me. Good for skin with blue undertones.
