It's a very pigmented berry bronze with golden shimmer. I found I had to be super careful applying because it is very easy to over-do.
Swatch of lovejoy:
in different light to show shimmer:I found that once applied to my cheeks the shimmer didn't stand out very much. On me, lovejoy turned very red and sunburned looking.
Wearing lovejoy : (please excuse this blurry photo, was taken after a very long day)It made me look very flushed. I felt like I was suffering from a bad case of rosacea :(
The red undertone made my complexion look overly pink and I really did not like that effect.
Sadly lovejoy is not a winner for me. This would work much better on warm toned or olive skin, ranging from light to dark in color.
What is your favorite NARS blush? I was looking at douceur but I'm on the fence about it.
