ABAD Day 9: NARS Gilda //"每日一胭脂"系列 第9天: NARS Gilda 胭脂

Day 9 of A-Blush-A-Day project features NARS Gilda blush, which is a 'coral' described by NARS. As a coral fan, I've always wanted to try Gilda but has never taken the plunge. Anyways, here it is and it looks horrifyingly bright in the pan, lol.

"每日一胭脂"系第9天的焦點在 NARS Gilda上, Gilda 被形容為''珊瑚色''. 作為"珊瑚色''的粉絲, 我打算試這個色很久的了, 但一直也沒有. Gilda 給我的第一印象很鮮豔, 有點害怕很難carry.

Since it's matte, and the shade itself is bright, it almost made me look sunburned.

因為是啞光, 顏色本身都是很sharp的緣故, 令我看起來很似"曬傷了".

Intensity: Very pigmented
Finish: Matte, makes me look a bit sunburned, not sure if it looks nice
Price: $27 USD (Got it on sale though)
Lasting power: 7 hours
Repurchase: Probably not, as the shade is not my favourite...
Overall thoughts: Gilda looks coral-fan-friendly in the pan but it came out making me look a bit sunburnt. Pigmentation and quality lives up to its name though. I just have problems with the shade itself, will give it a few more trials before making my mind up if I should keep it. Hopefully I'll get more tanned in summer and Gilda would work out nicely!

上色度: 很高
效果: 啞光, 看下去有種"曬傷了"的感覺
價錢: $27 USD
持久度: 7小時
回購: 應該不會, 這類顏色在我膚色上不太好看
總評: Gilda看下去很容易carry, 出來的效果令我好像被太陽曬傷的感覺, 不肯定是好與否. 顯色度及質素都附合NARS胭脂的聲譽. 我只是不太肯定應否繼續用這個顏色, 會多試數次才有決定. 夏天來臨時, 我又會曬黑了, 說不定這個顏色會很好看呢.

What is A-Blush-A-Day (ABAD) Project?
Project ABAD was started by Elaine, Jolyn and I. On each day, each of us will present a different blush (old or new) we used each day (so that's 3 x 30 = 90 blushes), with swatches done either on face or on hand, and a short review. For my list of 30 blushes to be used in this project, click here. Don't forget to head to Elaine's and Jolyn's blogs for daily blush surprises!

我們三個(Elaine, Jolyn 和我)每天會介紹當日使用的胭脂, 3人 x 30 = 會介紹總共 90 個胭脂 (新與舊), 配以試色圖(於手上或面上), 再加短短的用評. 本人於未來30天會使用這些胭脂. 去Elaine, Jolyn的blogs看看她們在用那個胭脂吧!!
