Nars Gaiety blush review and swatches

Nars Gaiety is permanent, yay! 
Initially I thought it was only limited for Spring 2012 but after some research it's obvious it's a new addition to the Nars blush family.

It's a BRIGHT blue toned pink with tiny speckles of silver shimmer visible only on the sun.
It's buildable but sheer at the same time. I'm not entirely sure if it would be visible on a darker skin tone than Mac NC25. Maybe just to perk up the cheeks?
It's definitely more lighter and cool toned than Nars Angelika or Desire.
 Looks absolutely lovely on really fair skin but I do find it a bit more warm on my skin than in the actual pan. But it's definitely one of the brightest in my collection. I must admit...I was a bit dissapointed it didn't transfered on the cheeks with the actual color in the pan.

I love the usual Nars packaging but I store Nars blushes really carefully.

On sun light
If you're in love with cool toned pinks...this is definitely A MUST for you.
It's one of my favorites and I reach for it constantly. Worth every penny for me!
L to R: sheer application with a brush, swatched with fingers and buildable
On the sun light
 Not to mention the name GAIETY....makes me smile every time after I googled what it means. They are truly the best in naming their blushes.
Any recommendations for other Nars blushes? What's your favorite?
