Ah, the infamous NARS Orgasm blush. I admit that I was pretty behind on getting this product. *Spoiler Alert: I bought this already* But I feel it necessary to document my reasoning for still getting this product. Also, I’ve got some good dupes, so you’ll want to see those. Maybe its something you have in your collection?
So if you’ve been living under a rock, makeup lovers around the globe love the NARS Orgasm blush.* It’s peachy, shimmery and compliment so many skin tones. I found this little sample on one of the inserts in an Allure magazine (btw, best part of getting the hard copy of the magazine), and I thought why not, right? So before I show some swatches, let’s first find out what NARS says about the product. According to NARS, who claims to be the “ultimate authority in blush,” the Orgasm blush is one of the “industry’s most iconic shades for cheeks. Natural, healthy-looking color that immediately enlivens the complexion. A light application of even the highest-intensity hues delivers a natural-looking flush.”
So is this blush a natural flush on the cheeks? Let’s look at some swatches. After that, we can check out some dupes and you can decide if you need to hold out or cave in like I did. Picture heavy post incoming!
