This blush is a matte red with a tint of orange. It is definitely very similar to NARS Exhibit A blush, when on me had too much orange when applied- which is why I gave it away. Upon the swatch, I could already tell where this was headed.
It is a matte blush, and because of the deep colour, took a bit more effort to blend.
The end result was pretty, although still a bit bold:
Overall, this is a great blush, but I would probably recommend it for deeper skin tones.
