NARS Cream Blush
Penny Lane = Natural Blush
I bought this blush in the color Penny Lane. The blush is extremely long-lasting - I put it on in the morning and it is still visible when I get home at night. The only negative is that the color is very natural - the type of blush where someone else could probably not tell that you are wearing blush. I tend to go for more pigment in the winter but I think that this will be perfect when you won't want a made-up look in the summer.
If you like MAC well dressed, you will like the pigment/sheerness/natural look of this. If you like the tarte blushes, you will probably feel disappointment at the shade.
I am keeping this product though - but I'm still looking for a pink, more pigmented cream blush.
I am a NARS Deauville skin shade FYI.
Not right for me
I have to give this a 3 star due to it being creamy and easy to blend however for the very fair skinned like myself it turns a bit orange when applied. I was not happy with the color at all and will stick with Laura Mercier Oleander for my white skin. There is a lot of blush in this compact so it will last a very long time but again for porcelain type skin it is way to orange....I think on medium skin it would be lovely but I was very dissapointed in the color and it is sheer but the more I applied the more it turned orange on my skin so this brand is not a good fit for me...I like a soft pink and while the description says a nude pink it really isnt...
This is the most amazing cream blush EVER. I have for many years tried to find the perfect shade for my fair, slightly freckled skin. So many times the shade i picked was to orange, or too bubblegum pink looking, no matter how much or how little i put on. I use Bobbie Brown's liquid foundation and put this blush on and it looks natural. I am 61 years old and like the natural look, this is what is acheived with this blush. At first look, it seemed orange in the package, but after putting it on and wearing it all day, it's perfect. I hope they don't discontinue this shade. By the way there is no sparkle or shimmer.
Love this blush! It is light and natural for us over 40 gals.
