Thank goodness the newest NARS blush has a name that I don't mind repeating. Gaiety is a vivid light blue toned pink that is completely matte.
Most of Gaiety's friends look almost peach in comparison.
Illamasqua Katie is much lighter in hue, Spank has a warmer tone, and Rose Tourbillon is deeper and warmer- more of a berry pink.
Gaiety gives a beautiful pink flush, brightening my winter complexion. I was able to use a regular blush brush and easily build color without creating scary clown cheeks.
NARS Gaiety will be a regular in my pink blush rotation this year!
