  1. Unfortunately i don’t think I would wear it. I swatched it at Sephora and it was a mess, chalky and chock full of silver craft-sized glitter.

      My sentiments the same Jessi. I could not believe that this color/product made it to market. Nothing redeeming about it.

  2. I would wear it with fuschia lips and neutral eyes, and rock the glitter!

  3. Adriana

    Just glitter…no color …

  4. Molly

    I wear it as a highlight at the top of my blush, or over top for extra shimmer.

  5. Donna

    I don’t think I could stand to wear it… the texture reminds me of NARS’ ‘Silent Night’ eyeshadow which was a horrific mess (which I tried 2x and then pitched it in the garbage because it was an uninspired mess).

    I wouldn’t. It’s strange, and unfortunate, that a brand like NARS (and it is one of my favorites) continues to put out products which are, for all intents and purposes, useless.

  7. Amanda

    I would wear it with just a neutral shadow all over the lid, and then intensely black lined eyes with MAC show orchid

  8. Strangely, the glitter/ shimmer in this one doesn’t bother me as much as in other blushes. I wore it with the Dogon duo and Mayflower l/s and it worked really well.

    I love this blush over a bright pink color, it sort of tones it down and gives your cheeks a gorgeous shimmer!

    I guessing this blush is named after one of my favourite bands. I think I might buy it just for that, haha.

    • That’s exactly why I got it. :-) The fact that I was able to make it work was sort of a nice bonus. Then again, I seem to end up with a lot of NARS products that way. I think Francois and I must have been into a lot of the same things growing up.

  12. I’m not sure I could very well pull it off on its lonesome–far too blue and glittery for me, personally–so I’d try to warm it up with a bronzy contour and try to play off the glitter as a highlight with fairly satin-finish eyes and lips. The eyes would be a very natural contour, and the lips a slightly cool rose. Skin, lightly dewy.

  13. Love the color but looks like it would work better on cool tones. I think it may end up just looking chalky on my NC37-40 skin tone.

    I’d wear it as a shadow, or maybe as a highlighter to cool down my blush or bronzer… I’d never buy it though.

    I finally swatched this and was really surprised by how much I liked it! Yeah, it’s totally sparkly and I’d never wear it in daily life, but if I had a need for “party sparkle” or something more theatrical/fun, I’d totally buy it and wear it with pale, pale matte lips and a dark matte smoky eye. It didn’t seem like regular run-of-the-mill glitter to me…the sparkles were somehow prettier.

    I feel so alone in loving this product. (Is it because I’m super pale and slightly cool toned – NW15ish?) I’ve used this pretty much every day this week. Today I’m wearing a pinky nude lip, the super pretty Dogon duo and New Order over Deep Throat blush. Yesterday I wore it on its own with Guerlain Gillian and some eyeshadows from the Stila Haute in the Hamptons palette. I’ve also used it to nice effect as a sort of intensifier for when I actually bother to put bronzer on my chest and/or shoulders.

    Yikes, I guess I’m in the minority here. I really love this blush.

    I mix it with Benefit Moon Beam highlighter and it looks great. If you keep the eyes and lips sans-sparkle, it’s a great balance.

    I’m actually surprised that so many people are glitter-hating when a lot of times, they’re all gung-ho over chunky glitter gritty lipglosses. *shrugs*

    With a smokey eye in grey hues :)

    This reminds me of a blush I had in the 80’s and I want to say it was Aziza or maybe L’Oreal, but I will never forget that color!! Fun but tricky to wear. It wasn’t chalky, it went on nice and sheer, but even with my pale skin, it was hard to pull off.

    Wow, I actually really like New Order Blush. I wear it with a bronzy eye and sheer pink lipcolor. I like to layer it over Deepthroat blush.

  21. Shalimar

    Since I am dark complexioned, probably as an eyeshadow highlighter or cheekbone highlighter. *shrugs*
