NARS Blush in Gina

NARS Blush in Gina - John Lewis/Asos - £21

Along with Benefit's They're Real! Beyond Mascara (review here), this beautiful NARS blush is another beauty bargain I snapped up from ASOS in a 25% off student offer. It has been a staple product of mine for a while now so I just had to order it with a deal like that!

NARS describe the shade Gina as a 'true tangerine' which sounds a bit daunting to me and really quite off putting. Once applied it comes across as a much more orange based peach, however it is subtle and soft- so you don't look like an umpa lumpa! The texture is so beautifully soft making this product a dream to apply as well as easy to build up to a much richer shade. 

It adds warmth to the face and applies with a matte finish- no emphasized pores! Although the pretty hefty £21 price tag may be quite a bit to spend on a blush, this is super pigmented meaning it will last a fair amount of time with only a swirl of product needed for each application. 

Of course it is presented in such beautiful packaging with a handy little mirror. After trying a few different shades of blushes by NARS I always come back to Gina. Have any of you tried this shade, what are your thoughts? What is your favourite NARS product?


  1. I haven't tried any NARs products yet, but I think I'm gonna have to, I keep seeing reviews of their blushers everywhere & they look so pretty!
