Nars Mata Hari, Gaiety and Sin blush swatch comparison
NARS Gaiety needed a lot more product to show up than the other two blushes in this post. It's a clear, very slightly lavendered pink. It is pretty, and good for a natural blush-and-highlight effect on me. Gaiety has no shimmer, but it is a satin texture with more sheen to it than Mata Hari.
NARS Sin is one I need to be careful with; it can look dirty if I don't apply lightly and blend well. In the pan Sin look quite brown but when it is swatched on white paper you can see the plum tones. I feel like this is a bit too dark for my MAC 20 depth skin; it might be better for a 25-30+ depth. Sin has golden shimmer running through it that I could live without; it's not sparkly or as shimmery as Orgasm, but I prefer matte/satin blushes.
As you can probably see, I prefer blushes on the cooler side of the colour spectrum. NARS blushes are excellent, and come in a wide range of shades. You do have to apply with quite a light hand for most of them though.
