First tried the lip gloss in this color and found that it is one of the three best nudes for me. Then I read Christine’s review of the blush but kept finding my local stores out of this blush. I finally got ahold of this and really like it. I have many similar shades with shimmer but love that this is so much more natural and does not accentuate pores.
NARS Dolce Vita Blush ($28.00 for 0.16 oz.) is described as a “matte dusty rose.” It’s a dark berry rose-red. It’s red, but it’s not red-red; it’s pink, but it’s not your average pink–there’s a muted quality, but there’s still depth. MAC Supernova is pinker, less red. MAC Mocha is a bit lighter, but it’s similar, especially when worn. NARS G-Spot is more orange/warm. I kind of feel like Dolce Vita is a very underrated NARS blush; it’s one of my favorites, because it’s low-key but dramatic. It’s everyday with a twist. It can be a barely-there rosy blush with a flick of the brush or kind of a plummy-berry-rosy-red shade when built up.
