Review: Nars Deep Throat

I know Nars is known for their naughty names, but I don't mind them. After awhile of playing with makeup, you kinda get used to the strange and sometimes dirty names. The most talked about blush Nars has is Orgasm, but I feel like there's a bit too much glitter in it for me. However, I purchased Nars Deep Throat a few days ago, and since I've managed to wear it everyday since. So, I thought I'd do a bit of a review on it.
I've never been truly obsessed with a blush before, I've had ones I liked a lot, like Too Faced Papa Dont Peach, but never one I've adored. I have had this since Saturday and I've managed to wear it everyday since, and normally I only wear makeup 2 or 3 times a week.

Deep Throat is a peachy-pink-coralish color. On me, I feel like it leans more on the pink side, but if I want more of a peach look I can build it up to that. The shimmer that it has looks less like shimmer or glitter and more like a sheen or glow. Which I adore.
I love that I can put on a thin layer for just a bit of a flush, or really build it up for a dramatic effect. I kinda regret not buying the fan brush my Sephora guy, Maxwell, recommended with it, but that will be remedied when I go back for bronzer later this spring.

Mostly I've been wearing this with just my Dr. Jart+ BB Cream, YSL Shocking Mascara, and sometimes a bit of Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eyeliner in Bourbon and the new YSL Volupte Sheer Candy lip color. Kind of just letting the blush do the work. Normally I don't go that simple with my makeup until the hottest days of summer, but I've been feeling really good with my makeup this wy, and am super happy with this look.

I mean, just look at it! I don't have anything else to compare it too, but I do know I'd like to try another Nars blush in the future. Maybe one that looks dewy and fresher for the summer, or maybe all I need to do is add a good highlight and a bronzer.
