For years I never wore blush because I thought it never looked good on my fair skin. After hearing about the hype of Orgasm for so long I decided to give it ago. I don't wear it everyday, but it is a fool proof shade for cool and warm skin tones. Sometimes I use a bit as eyeshadow too. Gives a nice warm flush.
The shimmer and blush is great.
This just has way too much hype for the price. I will not rebuy. I can get the same thing for far cheaper on another brand.
The color's good. It's a fool-proof shade that matched my skin well. If this blush was matte it'd be my HG blush, but no. I'm not a fan of that golden shimmer. Not only you need to have perfectly flawless skin to pull it off, i also couldn't use it as a day blush because it looked overdone.
Okay, i have serious issues with NARS compact powders. They break at the slightest touch. I dropped my clinique powder on marble floor two times and there's not a single crack. This one broke inside my bag just sitting there.
I tried to fix it by adding alcohol to make a paste & remold into the pan, but for some reason the paste leaked magenta colored fluid (what the-?) staining my fingers and everywhere it touched. After it was dried I tried to apply it but to my surprise, the whole hardened paste fell on the ground. That moment i vowed to never purchase a compact powder from NARS again.
I will def not buy this again.
While I have found that this product dosen't work on many skin tones, I do like it on myself. It isn't a very strong color so it allows you to layer for a deeper color if you so choose and therefore gives you control. It's a nice golden color on me but I have found it a bit too orange on others. Another product that I have found as a substitute when this product is a little too orange on someone is Guerlain's terracota. I use Guerlain's moisturizing bronzing powder in No.1. It gives your cheeks a healthy sun-kissed glow and comes in a variety of shades so that you can find the one that's right for you.
I'm an NC42 and you cannot see it....looks pretty in the package but far to sheer to appear on my skin tone
This stuff is great. I am a big mac fan and this shows up beautifully on my skin and is a peachy pink. It is neither warm nor cool, it is the perfect mix. The sparkle and shimmer isn't too much but still gets me notices and glows a tad bit.
As I have mentioned in previous reviews that I've recently made on this site, it's one of the few blushes that did not get nixed when I was cleaning out my kit.
This product leaves a nice flush of color without being overpowering, or "clownish." The shimmer isn't overdone either, leaving a nice 'glow' to the cheeks and isn't overly glittery. Plus, the texture is buttery smooth and it applies like a dream to my face.
It looks even lovelier when paired with a tanned/bronzed look. :)
I bought this blush based upon its near cult-like status in various beauty blogs, chat rooms, etc. In the pan, it is exactly the color I'm looking for. On my skin, it was nearly nonexistent. I was mortified that I paid this much for a blush that didn't even show up. High-end cosmetics typically have good/outstanding color payoff, AND I am a fair to fair/medium skinned person, so I have no idea what the problem was. It kind of looked like I used a highlighter powder on my cheeks, kind of shiny with just a tiny hint of color. I don't want shiny cheeks. Dewy maybe, but not shiny. I tossed this in my make-up case and eventually gave it away. What a shame. I can name several drugstore brand blushes that show up better, and even a few natural/organic ones (100 Percent Pure), that cost a fraction of the price. So disappointed.
I got this in a duo sample in a sephora favorites bag and let me tell you I would never have purchased it alone for that price!!
I love the application of this stuff... it gives me a great natural flush on my light skin tone and a healthy sort of glow... I don't even notice the shimmer and I hate shimmer on my face...
I would love to repurchase this if I wanted to splurge on a luxury blush.
very nice blendability and payoff.. I just loved it
Way to sparkly! My oily skin could not take looking sparkly and greasy at the same time. The peachy color is fantastic, but my god the gold sprinkles in here were driving me insane. By the end of the day, since I always get oily, I was also a sparkly mess. For the price, so not worth it, I'm a matte girl forever. Luckily returned it to Sephora, found a matte blush by tarte that I love. If you like sparkles and splurging on blush go for it, but if you're like me and hesitate whenever something sparkles on your skin, stay far away.
