I popped in and had a play at the NARS display and noticed a blush that I'd pretty much ignored every time I'd been at a NARS counter ..Gina.
Excuse the crap pic - I'll try and replace it tomorrow.Gina is a true matte peach shade and I ummed and ahhed about buying her for a full 48 hours until I succumbed today at lunchtime and I have no regrets. I don't own a matte peach shade and it's luuurvely! I was so impressed by the swatch on my hand in store that as soon as I got back to work I put it on. Luckily I was wearing MAC Eversun blush today so it complimented it perfectly. Although it's a matte finish, it's not dull, in fact there's an obvious sheen to it that I can see when it's swatched on my hand to give you a "glow" which I love. The finish isn't chalky like some matte blushes can be.
Ok, if I had looked hard enough then I may have been able to find a cheaper alternative but my general feeling with Nars blushes is you get what you pay for in terms of quality, the size of the blush pan is adequate enough and they last all day without wearing off ..so erm, yeah that's my justification for my 2nd NARS blush purchase in 2 weeks!
Gina will be joining her siblings so she won't be lonely :-)
