NARS Gina Blush: Review, Swatches


Hi All,

I’d like to think that each of my blushes have a story to it…other than my insatiable thirst for more blushes that is.. 😉 I usually try to jump right in and not bore anyone with the details but then there are some blushes which deserve their story to be told…Sorry, I’m getting too senti over blush aren’t I?

Well, have you heard of Bon Jovi’s song, ‘It’s my life’? It has a phrase, “For Tommy and Gina, who never backed down” ..Well, I was a die-hard fan of his and this song was one of my favs. And it was also the same song that started yammering at my head when I saw this gorgeous Orange beauty on strawberrynet. Well, I do believe this could have been a sign from god….or my own greed ;)..and that was that and this blush made it to my list of NARS must have blushes 🙂

My take on NARS blush in Gina:

  •  Color: Nars Gina can be described as a matte orangey-tangerine blush. Infact, it’s a bit similar to MAC Peaches blush with the only variation being that Gina is a warmer shade than Peaches. Where MAC Peaches can make some skin tones look a bit pale, Nars Gina is the total opposite. It would make any skin tone look warmer and suffused with the right bit of color.nars gina blush review+ nars blush review+ nars gina
  •  Pigmentation & Texture: The blush is quite pigmented and shows up easily on my cheeks. As with most Nars blushes, this is also really smooth and easy to easy to work with. I did notice some fallout and felt like it was marginally more than that of other blushes but I don’t mind. It just makes me a lot more cautious while applying 🙂nars gina blush review+ nars blush review+ nars
  •  Staying Power: This lasts about 5hrs and then starts to fade slowly. But the tangerine-y touch of color still remains through the day.nars gina blush review+ nars
  •  Application: I use a rounded blush brush to apply a very tiny bit so that I don’t end up with Orange cheeks 🙂nars gina blush review+ nars blush review+ nars blush swatch
