NARS Ninotchka is a moderately warm-toned, medium-dark orange with a matte finish. It is a limited edition blush that retails for $30.00 and contains 0.16 oz.
Ninotchka is a muted, medium-dark orange with warm, brownish undertones and a matte finish. The texture was smooth to the touch but very firm and stiff to work with, effectively yielding no color payoff when I tried to apply it--whether fingertips or brushes.
The only way I was able to make anyway progress was pushing off layers of product, which was like turning the pressed powder into a loose powder. Once broken up a bit, I was able to get mostly opaque coverage that applied decently bare skin, but it was thin and harder to blend out than most blushes. It stayed on for seven and a half hours before fading visibly.
