nars gina powder blush

nars gina powder blush review swatch photo
nars gina powder blush: £21.50

Nars Gina has been on my radar for a while but I never actually got around to purchasing it. I placed a Space NK order earlier in the week and as soon as it came (and I'd photographed it! #bloggerproblems) I popped it onto my cheeks. Gina is a described as a true tangerine, which I think is a perfect description. It's a vibrant orange with a satiny sheen and no shimmer. I love the texture of this blush, its soft an smooth and very finely milled. A light dusting on the cheeks really warmed up my face and lasted a good 8 hours without fading. The subtle sheen in the powder makes the shade brightening and glowly without emphasising pores or looking too red toned or sunburnt looking. I only own one other Nars Blush (Orgasm, obviously) but this one is just as I would imagine from Nars. They are on the pricey side but I can completely vouch for the quality and longevity of their blushes.

  15. I remember when I first saw this shade (I actually think I saw it before I ever saw Orgasm!!) and fell absolutely in love... I can't believe I had forgotten about it!! Now I'm thinking I've got to pop over to Sephora and re-look at this beauty :)

  24. Looks lovely on your warm tones skin, I think it may be a tad too warm for me. I'd love to try a Nars blush soon but I can't find a counter anywhere near me :( lovely post!
