I have two Nars blushers one in Dolce Vita and the other in Orgasm. Dolce Vita is just lovely it goes on smoothly and lasts all day long (it deserve 5 stars), as for Orgasm for some reason it wouldn’t stick on my face unless I wear moisturizer which is weird since my other blushers work perfectly although I never wear foundation.

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!

One of my favourite blushers, Taj Mahal by Nars is a super flattering orange shade with a beautiful golden finish. It’s so easy to use, highly pigmented and long wearing (approx 7 hours). The more you blend out the more it actually works as a good highlighter too. Love this!

I find it easy to overdo due to the pigmentation, but very easy to apply and to sheer out with my 182 kabuki by MAC. I really cannot find anything wrong with this blush. If you are olive/warm toned you will love this blush! It you have pores or hate shimmer, I would suggest trying it on before buying. I personally have no issues with it. A great value for the price!

Gorgeous. A bit more red that your average coral blush, so very unique. Bright, but not over-the-top. Looks great on fair skin–just apply with a light hand.

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.

Orgasm
Skin Tone: Medium-Tan, Skin Type: Normal-to-Dry, Undertone: Olive

I think my experience of this blush is the same as others. The colour is gorgeous but the payoff, not so much. Like Benefit’s Coralista, Nars’ Orgasm blush is just a bit too glittery to wear every day and it is really sheer, so the more you add to get colour, the more glitter you add to your cheeks. Still, it’s a high quality product and I can see why its so popular.

A bit overhyped. The glitter was fairly noticable, but the lovely peachy coral didn’t show through. I wish the base color was more noticeable and the wear time better.

When I first applied this blush I understood my everyone wanted/loved it. On my olive skin it made my look like a tropical goddess. Unfortunately, the higher shimmer content keeps me from wearing it very often during the day. But it is a beautiful color.

Liberte
Skin Tone: Medium, Skin Type: Normal-to-Oily, Undertone: Olive

Liberte was my first NARS blush purchase and I am so glad I have it. It is such a beautiful fall color to wear on my NC25-35 skin. It’s extremely pigmented so I use a duo fiber brush to apply it. I don’t have any problem blending it and it stays on all day. I think the subtle sheen helps a lot to help the color look full of life and not flat.

One of my favorite blushes. A perfect example of why Nars blushes are so popular. I am very fair and can easily blend this blush into a light wash or layer it on more for a more defined cheek. Love it!

Orgasm
Skin Tone: Light, Skin Type: Combination, Undertone: Neutral

Some people love it, some people don’t. I think it has a beautiful sheen to the cheeks, but some people think it is to shimmery . It can be light on darker skin tones, and some people with fair/light skin and/or people with red undertones, think this blush is too red. I have a light skin myself, but i have found a way to work with this blush, it is very buildable, so when i just put it on the cheeks lightly, it will have just the perfect sheen with a little bit of coral/pink color to it. So now i just really like it, it is a healthy looking color on the skin, and i just really love the glow!

I really love this blush! I think this is a great blush for fair and light skin, because it isn’t an intense color, it just warms up your face beautiful. It gives you that J. Lo glow. And it’s not glittery, but gives your skin just a beautiful sheen.

BOTTOM LINE: Try before you buy! It’s a cult classic for a reason, but is not right for everyone.

PROS:
– Provides a luminous flush of pink with a hint of peachy-golden sheen
– Pigmented
– Buildable; easy to create the look you want
– Good quality, smooth, and applies evenly
CONS:
– If you want a matte blush, this is NOT it. There is definite sparkle/sheen.
– The sheen/sparkle can emphasize pores and other skin imperfections.

Douceur
Skin Tone: Light, Skin Type: Normal-to-Dry, Undertone: Pink

Douceur is one of 3 Nars blushes I own, all of which I consider over-rated by the beauty community.

I use this blush very rarely and prefer dupes I own from Sleek Cosmetics.

My favorite everyday blush. This is perfect for the ultra-lightskinned like me :) I don’t normally wear peachy colors but this one is a big exception. Even when I don’t feel like putting anything else on, I’ll wear some of this.

Douceur
Skin Tone: Light, Skin Type: Oily, Undertone: Yellow

This is probably NARS least pigmented blush, but I don’t see this as a bad thing, in my NC20 skin it can be easily built to a natural color that defines my cheekbones like no other. This is my go-to blush when I want to look polished. It pairs beautifully with a red lip. I like to apply it with MAC 109 or 168, I find them good to build the color. And when I want the no make-up look, I can pretend I have cheekbones by using it lightly.

This was my first NARS blush and I love it. The young lady at the store pretty much told me this is Orgasm for women of color and well, I’m ok with that. I looove this blush and cant wait to purchase more NARS in the future.

Luster
Skin Tone: Light, Skin Type: Oily, Undertone: Yellow

Luster is such a beautiful color, it warms my face like no other! I love pairing it with a red lip for a night out and with a nude lip for the workplace. It is very versatile, it has shimmer but when blended I almost can’t see it in my face. In my complexion it looks a bit more peach, but it is still natural looking
