NARS Gina Blush Review & Swatches

Throw out your blushes, people, NARS Gina is an A+!



Let's go back to the beginning. I definately don't NEED more blush. No way. BUT. A girl I CP for wanted me to order NARS Gina blush for her, so I did. When it came I opened it up to make sure it wasn't cracked before I sent it off to her and was taken aback. WOW. It is beautiful! The swatches I saw on the various websites had not done it justice. I raved about it SO much that another girl I CP for wanted to order it as well, so of course I got one for me too ;)

It applies like BUTTER. I was not a fan of NARS blushes before this. Orgasm looked like crap on me and Luster turned to mud. I had given up. Gina is a dream. Smooth, pigmented, flawless. I wish I would have had it before I did my HG post because this definately would have been in there.

Here are some pics, swatches, and a pic of it on my NW25 skin tone.





NARS Gina blush is available at NARScosmetics.com for $26 plus tax. Currently they're offering FREE shipping on ANY purchase. Go take advantage of it!

Nars GINA is my HG too <3 loved it! I was worried sephora's gonna discontinue it because i saw there's no Gina shade in their website (although i live outside US) :( glad to know it's still around!

It looks awesome on you btw! (I'm NC25 :)) Orgasm didn't WOW me, i'm kinda on-and-off with it, i bought it then swapped it away, and swapped another Orgasm back, lol and it didn't get much love from me now. Do you happen to like MAC's My Highland Honey? I think it looks quite similar with Gina <3

My Sephora isn't carrying it either! We had to get it directly off of the NARS site. They always do away with the good ones =( Hopefully not this one!

I haven't seen MAC HH yet... everyones been sick so NO time to hit the mall! I'm dying to haul!! I will check it out for sure!
