ABAD Day 29: NARS Gina//"每日一胭脂"系列 第29天: NARS Gina胭脂

On day 29, blush-of-the-day is NARS Gina, a matte orange with no pink undertones. True orange. The rubber compact has turned sticky and glue-y so I taped it up with cellotapes.

第29天, 今天的主角是NARS Gina, 啞光的橙色胭脂, 沒有任何粉紅調, 是絕對的橙色. 由於黑色的橡膠盒開次老化, 變得"癡立立", 所以我用了膠紙包著它.
Even though the color is matte and might look dull on hand, it showed up beautifully and is an instant wake-up blush shade.

在手背的試色看似很沉, 但掃在面上後, 整個look立即變得精神起來.

Intensity: very high pigmentation
Finish: matte
Price: $27 USD
Lasting power: 8-9 hours
Repurchase: yes
Overall thoughts: Don't be terrified by the true orange of Gina, I know there are orange blushes that dull the face but Gina gave me the "pop" of color and perked me up, making me look instantly awake and fresh. It's extremely long-wearing and still wears on the face after an entire day's wear.

上色度: 極高
效果: 啞光
價錢: $27 USD
持久度: 8-9 小時
總評: 不要被Gina的純橙色嚇掉, 我曾試過一些橙色的胭脂但它們會令面色不好看(像曬乾了那樣), 但Gina就不會, 它的橙色令我看起來即時精神奕奕, 持久度非常令人滿意, 出了街整天之後還在.

What is A-Blush-A-Day (ABAD) Project?
On each day, each of us will present a different blush (old or new) we used each day (so that's 4 x 30 = 120 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, Vonvon's, PopBlush's blogs for daily blush surprises!

我們每天會介紹當日使用的胭脂, 4人 x 30 = 會介紹總共 120 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, Vonvon, PopBlush 的blogs看看她們在用那個胭脂吧!!


  1. interesting color. i think this is a good color for spring and summer too! :)

  2. What a beautiful summery colour.
    Not sure I'd be brave enough to wear it though!

  3. Gina looks beautiful! I'm so glad to read it doesn't turn into a dull orange on cheeks, I'm gathering opinions on Nars blushes until I take the plunge and go to the stores and have my very first blush by Nars!!! Yay!!!


  4. Everytime I go to the NARS counter I always swatch Gina and say to myself 'oh pretty' but never end up buying the blush. Next time I'll be making the purchase.

  5. This looks beautiful on your skin ^^

    Love Christine ♥

  6. beautiful peach colour, it looks lovely on your cheeks! looks so wearable =]

  7. *skips drooling, goes straight for the yumminess instead*

    *shoves into mouth*

    You better go and get a new one!

  8. I'd never dare to use orange blush D: my face is already so yellow-ish, I fear it'd make me look to peachy-orangey. >_<"

  9. Now, you got me interested in this blush. Kinda like peachy-orangey blush lately. Looks very good with your skin tone.

  10. Pretty color! :) The packaging is really disappointing though, they should change them! x

  11. You can use alchohol to rub the case too! It becomes ugly but will remove stickyness. I am a huge Nats fan & live in more humid place & have had to deal to with stickyness a lot. :(


LOVE to hear what you think <3 I'll try my best to respond to every comment!
