I do love the idea of combining pink and peach, but you really have to be careful with SHEEN ...it can highlight imperfections of the skin so easily. I would far prefer this blush if it didn't have that frostiness to it - just not all that flattering....I would even take a micro-mica sparkle over frost....to me, frost reminds me of the early 80s and the times when make up wore you rather than the other way around - make up should be subtle and highlight your assets...not draw attention to your flaws...and frost is a big factor in make up that does just that.....PLEASE make orgasm with NO frost! That would be a 5 lippie blush!
Updating my previous review. I tried this on my face at a makeover from Nordstroms and it wasn't frosty like the time I tried it on at Sephora. Gives a nice peachy glow like the blush. Taking off one rating because it's on the sheerer side, wish it had a bit more color. But overall nice.
update: so i had to up this. i tried this a couple more times and i actually love it now. yes it's sheer...as if the original orgasm wasn't sheer enough! plus this seems to show more sparkles..which is the reason i'm upping my rating. i love shimmer and if i build the color enough it shows it's pretty color just like the original orgasm does. portofino IMO is the pigmented version of orgasm. so if u don't like shimmer and u don't want to spend your time layering..then get portofino instead.
This is a greasy overly shimmery blush. I'm not a fan of the pressed powder version of this color, but the multiple is worse. It is easy to spread as far as NARS multiples go, so if you love shimmer and NARS multiples, maybe you'll like this. I prefer natural looking blushes.
I just bought this two days ago. The color is VERY pretty! I have fair skin and the shade of pink looks natural. The shimmer is subtle and texture is creamy, which makes it easy to blend out. I haven't tried the orgasm blush yet, but thinking about getting it to layer with The Multiple version. This is my HG blush (even though it's a highlighter, I use it in place of my blush). I've tried some others that I've liked along the way since I'm a MU junkie, but I always go back to this one.
The only complaint is that the staying power wasn't too good. I had to re-apply throughout the day. Any tips on that?
Hhhmmm....I'm more than a little disappointed with this much hyped product especially since I really love it in powder blush form. If you are anticipating this to be like the blush then you are best avoiding it as it is much sheerer and a tad more glittery. The SA in Sephora told me it looks awesome when layered with the blush so I will try that next, failing that it will go up for swap!!
Price: $35 usd. OVERpriced! continued >>
I had been anticipating this product for a while, and I am so happy with it! I agree with the other reviewers that it works best as a highlighter; especially on my rather tan skin. What I like to do is layer the Nars powder blush in Orgasm to intensify the color, because when I originally tried the blush by itself it just didn't show up at all. It is very shimmery (which I love) but might be a turn off for some people.Though it's expensive I know it will last a really long time, even with my using it every day.
I love my regular orgasm blush and was really excited to purchase this. I like the color and the packaging, however it is very expensive and I found that it was too shimmery for me. I like the other reviewers idea of using it only at night when lighting is dimmer, but I think my pores are too big and my skin can be too oily for it to be attractive. I did try it on my mom who has pretty much poreless skin, and it looked really good on her. I would definitely consider your skin type when deciding if this product is right for you. If you tend to be oily, this will make your face a shiny mess. As a lipgloss, I think it looked very nice but it is cost prohibitive for only that use. I will stick with my non-shimmery regular orgasm blush and regular orgasm lipgloss. I guess I'm just not the right person to enjoy a multiple!
Love the apricot coloring, its hot for fall 2007. Nice to balance prominent eye makeup. Highly pigmented, this will last me a long time. brush it on the apples of my cheeks to the hairlne, then with the other side of the brush (because i tap only one side of the blush brush) I brush downward. no streaks, jsut glowy cheeks.
I am a fan of the orgasm blush but stopped using it after having 2 break on me after 1 fall each. I also like the orgasm lip gloss, so I was thrilled when I saw this online. I immediately bought it. I am a huge fan of cream blush. The color is very pretty, but be warned--it is very glittery/shimmery. I wore it twice to work but then stopped because I felt it was a little heavy for day. It is very pigmented and has a lot of frost, and by the end of the day it looked greasy and very shiny.
On the other hand-I did rate it high because this is perfect for wearing when going out. It gives such a luminous glow to the skin and it looks great under low lighting. It brightens the face wonderfully.
