I love this blush. I am quite fair skinned so sometimes I find it hard to find blushes that work. I tried this blush a while ago and when I want something really special I always go for this. I love pairing this up with NARS Albatross highlighter, they work so well together. This blush is a gorgeous peach colour with the right amount of shimmer. Some people have commented that they find it too shimmery, however I disagree. I also love it's longevity and texture. I will put this blush on in the morning, workout at lunch and by the end of the day it will still be on my face. I want to buy NARS Deep Throat next.

It's fun to try new products but it's just as nice to have something you can always rely on for a 'bad face day'. Orgasm is that product for me, I've been wearing it since the early 2000's so not long after it initially launched and achieved cult status.
On me it is a pretty pinky-peach shade with fine gold shimmer. In the pan it has quite a coral sort of look but applied it is surprisingly subtle and parred down. I don't find it to be super pigmented, rather it can be built up easily. I like this because there is greater margin for error and less is always more! It gives me a really flattering glow.
Orgasm has been there for me through daily wear, when I met my OH (9 years ago now!), my graduation.... I could go on! I hope they make it forever.
So, like a lot of people, I'm sure I was sucked into the hype of this product. When I finally got around to swatching this blush, I was shocked! It was a warm peach color with a beautiful golden sheen...almost metallic looking. However, once applied, it is slightly underwhelming. The golden sheen that initially drew me to the blush was MUCH less apparent, and it kind of just looked like an average peachy-pink color with a bit of shine. Don't get me wrong, it is still a very flattering blush that looks good on a wide range of skin tones, but for $29, it isn't necessarily a must have.
It's nice, peachy and all and it is flattering indeed. The downside to me is the shimmer. It makes me feel like out of a twilight movie, so I kind of regret the purchase. I would wear it only at night, so it is more likely to last me forever. I think I have used it about three times. Last week I read something about Milani's baked blush in Luminoso that claimed it was just like the Orgasm minus the glitter. For $9.99 I thought oh what the hell. Oh! I am in love with it! It looks natural and yeah, just as if I have had a big O. Love it love it. Save you some money!
About me: NW13 (neutral-cool toned, very fair), blue eyes, Color season is True Summer, Baumann Skin Type is OSPW.
this has been reviewed by everyone, so just adding my 2 cents: it's low maintenance, beautiful on every skin tone, and HG. A great beginning blush.
Hate the packaging! Love the blusher, it's a beautiful coral pink that really suits my asian skin
Great blush! I love the light pink and the amazing shimmer it gives but it's too expensive and not worth it! I've owned drugstore blushes like Covergirl and they are all the same, really.
I hate to say it, especially with this cult favorite, but this blush sucks. On my skin, I have to pack it on and when I do it's mostly the gold shimmer that shows up. For those ladies that don't like this blush try NARS torrid. It's orgasm with more color.
Am I the only person who thinks this blush looks extremely unnatural and kind of trashy?
The color is hardly any flush of color your cheeks would ever create, and the shimmer is so sparkly. I feel like a vegas show girl when I wear this blush. Additionally, there are many dupes for this overpriced item since the color really isn't anything special.
I think those with dark or tanned skin would look good with this on, but possibly for an evening look. I generally think people should stay away from sparkly or very shimmery blushes during the day.
This blush is very popular in the beauty community but I definitely think that it doesn't live up to the hype. The colour is very pretty but it has tiny specs of reflective particles which I personally don't like. Also, Nars products are severely over-priced as is and of course this blush is no exception. What I did find though is that it lasted a really long time. Ultimately, it's just not a product I'd repurchase.
