I love this product, although perhaps not this particular shade. In the Sephora store it looked more pink and less neutral. It's still very pretty though, and I use it often. Next time I'll just get a brighter pink. Those lights in Sephora stores are not good for trying on makeup! The blush itself applies smoothly, is blendable, and can be built up if desired.
I purchased Mata Hari a few weeks ago and I am in love. It is a beautiful pinkish / plum shade that really looks good on the palest to darkest of skin. On myself it leaves me with a cute flirty look and doesn't give that ashy, powdery look that some lighter coloured blushes would leave on a darker skin tone. Just one swipe of the brush and you are all set and headed out the door. Nars rarely disappoints me!
Favourite Blush Hands Down
This is my favourite blush in my huge blush collection point blank period. I purchased this years ago and brought it on every vacation and wore it nearly every day and it dropped on the ground and was devastated. I grit my teeth and bought a second one (they are a bit pricey) because I really missed it and I am sure glad I did again because the beautiful glow it leaves on my dark skin is amazing. Darker ladies if you are sleeping on this stop! This is a must! This blush gives so much life lol
Seduction is a beautiful soft dark berry colour that is extremely pigmented and flattering. It is so easy to blend and doesn't have that powdery look like some pigmented shades have. Wears all day on the cheeks and looks great. Nars never disappoints and I think this is a new lovely addition to the line.
Great for pale skin!
Deep Throat is a pale reddish pink with a touch of shimmer. I am quite pale, and this shade is very flattering on my skintone. It is easy to overdo it and end up looking sunburnt, so I suggest applying it very lightly and building it up if you want more color.
I so far have "Desire" and "Deep throat". Desire is an intense, cool toned neon pink in the pan, that transfers onto my NC5 skin as a fresh, vibrant bubble gum pink. It is extremely pigmented and wears for a good 8 hours before fading.
"Deep throat" is described as a "peachy pink" shade that has small specks of golden beige glitters that do not transfer onto the face but assist in making the shade appear very glowing and iridescent on the skin. This shade appears more peach than pink on me but can appear more pink than peach on various skin tones (I'm assuming darker skin tones). Not as pigmented as desire, but I still find this shade a lot more pigmented than MAC blushes.
I love these blushes so pigmented and staying power is amazing I have deep throat taj mahal orgasm sin mata hari and love them all my go to blushes bit pricey but worth it. everytime I ware them I get compliments.
I purchased this product when it first came out. By looking at it in the packaging I was a little unsure if I was going to like it because of how glittery it looks. Once you apply it, it's a beautiful peachy pink color. The glitter gives just enough shimmer that you don't need a highlight to brighten your face. It looks lovely on all different skin tones!
I have two different shades of this blush (orgasm and gilda) and they are honestly some of my favorites out of my entire collection. I love the shimmer in orgasm and that it doesn't show up as chunks of glitter on my face. These blushes have lasted me forever and I have never once been disappointed with the color payoff.
