This is my all-time favorite blush. I am a golden tan skin tone (approx MAC NC42) and this color is actually very natural on me. since i already have a good amount of color in my skin, Gilda looks more like a soft peachy-pink on me. i often get compliments daily. And of course, Nars blushes last FOREVER, so the price point s irrelevant for me. MUST BUY!
NARS Gilda Blush ($28.00 for 0.16 oz.) is described as a “perfect coral with a hint of red.” It’s an orange-coral with a little burnt red tinge and matte finish. NARS Exhibit A is much more intense, deeper, and redder. MAC Modern Mandarin is brighter with a satin finish. Make Up For Ever #5 is richer in color but similar in color. MAC Out for Fun is a cream blush but very comparable in color.
