I bought this after reading the reviews on here. I had just ran out of my Nars . I love it!

The dead ringer for Nars Orgasm! It leaves a nice peachy sheen and glow...like after an exercise...There`s a lot of shimmer so I only wear this when I go dancing at nite def not for office. The texture glides on smooth...But I had to build up color for it to show ...It brightens my skin tone but somehow the pores on the apples of my cheeks look huge (and shiny) this is mineral makeup after all & if ur allergic u may wanna skip this...It lasts thru 6 hours but had to blot cos it looked oily ..Not to crazy abt the flimsy plastic packaging.. no mirror/brush...not for travels as may slip out.If ur on a budget and want a Nars O dupe this is ok i guess ..

Very pretty,subtle shimmery blush, indeed similar to Nars Orgasm, even though I find it a bit lighter. Nothing glamourous maybe, but it makes a nice glowy, pretty look.

Loooove this blush!! It's very similar to Nars.

I got a sample of this and, yep, it's a dead-on dupe for Orgasm on my fair complexion. I actually used the MK Shy Blush on one cheek and Orgasm on the other, and neither I nor my husband could find any discernible difference between them. Gorgeous color and lasts...I've had it on for well over 8 hours now and no fading whatsoever (wearing it over a sample of MK Timewise Luminous foundation). I think I'm now sold on the new "mineralized" MK line and will be saving myself a boatload of bucks between paying high-end Nars Orgasm prices and instead purchasing the MK versions (Shy Blush and Fancy Nancy gloss). I'm so sold on the these 2 products, I might even purchase the large compact and stock it up for not much more than I pay for 2 Nars products. Hope MK doesn't plan on discontinuing this blush or the FN lipgloss any time soon (but I intend to stock up "just in case").

This is a very pretty color that would work well with most skin tones. I bought it because I read that it was similar to NARS Orgasm but without the glitter - which is what I wanted. I don't like anything glittery on my face. This blush is a peachy coral with finely milled gold shimmer in it. The color and consistency and pigmentation is great. I think I like it better than my Milani blush in Luminous which is usually my "go to" blush. The packaging is ridiculous. It's meant as a throw away and for you to put in a MK palette so it basically comes in a piece of plastic. I put my in a free style palette similar to the zPalette (Dupe for zPalette for $8 at tkbtrading.com) so I don't mind the cheesy packaging. I bought mine on Ebay for $6 vs through MaryKay for $10. Its very pretty and worth a try if you like coral peachy blush colors with shimmer (no glitter). - Update: Mary Kay is not a cruelty free brand so I've discontinued using this product.

I use it everyday. I ordered the compact and filled it with three eyeshadows (copper glow, honey spice, and hazelnut), red lipstick, shy blush and the mineral face powder foundation in Beige 1.
I've had it since November of 2010 and it's now June (going into July) of 2011. And I've barely made a dent. For the price you pay, it's worth it. This blush is a really pretty color and great for every day use. I will definitely repurchase.
P.S. I know it seems like it's expensive, but I recommend buying the compact. I've never been much of a makeup/mirror sort of gal, but it sure does make it convenient to pop your makeup in your purse and go...

I really enjoy this blush. I've never been much of a blush-wearing girl, because I have naturally red cheeks (thank you, Dad) and I feel like adding any more color to my already-colored cheeks just makes them look funny. But, I have a co-worker that also sells Mary Kay, so she brought me in a bunch of samples of all different products and I tried this and I really loved it! It's a pinkish-goldish color and I love how shimmery it is. It's a pretty color overall, and it makes my somewhat dull skin look a little prettier. I've also used it as a quick eyeshadow to brighten up my eyes. I would buy it again.

Beautiful color! The blush gives my cheeks a hint of color...very natural and a tint of shimmer. Because my skin is on the oily side- the blush comes off very quickly.

I really really adore this blush, the color is absolutely amazing, and seems like it would be flattering on many of different skintones. Its perfect for everyday, and has just the right amount of shimmer. Deffinatly one of my favorite blushes.

Very pretty color that would work well with most skin tones. I purchased it because it looks a lot like Nars blush in Orgasm. The color and consistency of product is great, I'm just not a fan of Mary Kay's packaging. All of their colors are made to go into a compact that your have to purchase (they are in a magnetic container) and they are kind of small.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Other Hair: Other Eyes: Brown
I love this blush, the color is so pretty. My skin is very light so it's hard to find blushes that look good on me but this one is definitely nice, it doesn't make me look like I have clown cheeks, it looks soft and gives the right amount of color.

Ok, aside from the fact that they make you buy the compact separately, and that the size of the blush is about the size of an eyeshadow, I like this. Even though i am older and my skin is not as smooth as it used to be, I still think a little dewy sheen looks nice, as long as the color is subtle and you don't over do it. I love some of the BE radiances for this look, and also Nars Orgasm, The Balm's Hot Mama, and even Cover Girl Cheekers Snow Plum.
This blush, Shy Blush, is up there with the best. The particles are very small, so the effect is very sheer. The sheen is on the gold side, and it can be used as a blush or highlighter, I have even put a little on my eyelids on lighter makeup days. I love to dust it over my face right after foundation, and it also looks great with no makeup underneath. Of course at night one can use a heavier hand with this.
A little goes a long way, which is great because they really give you a little pan full for your 10 bucks.

LOVE this blush! It gives a great dewy look to the skin that is very pretty. I have medium tone skin but my sister is very fair and it looks great on both of us. I bought the compact after just a day without it, the packaging is not very good without the compact to hold it.

I love this stufff! It very simalar to Nars Organsim. Love it(: Great for simple color!

Packaging is very bad.. I didn't buy the separate compact though so I just keep it in its original container and if your not careful the pan falls off the case since it isnt stuck to it or anything.
Very similar to Nars Orgasm. I think its a bit peach-ier than the Nars one.. Peachy pink with gold shimmer. I love my Nars Orgasm and I love this one too. A good buy if you want to get that Nars Orgasm glow without spending much. I say its a pretty good, almost exact dupe.

I first got this blush on a whim from touchofpinkcosmetics just to fill my new compact. I got it and used 2 times and I hated it. I put it up for swap and after reading reviews how it is similiar to nars orgasm (which I have been wanting) I decided to pull it back out the other day and have not stopped using it since. It's a great pinky peach color with gold shimmer(I hate the gold shimmer but put up with it cuz I love the blush color). The color payoff for my pale skin is great. I even use a big fluffy brush, so I'm not quite sure what everyone is talking about. I have really grown to like this blush ALOT! The downside, you have to purchase the compact separate. I would most likely repurchase but I have so many blushes it's unrealistic to think I'll use them all up!!
UPDATE: Yesterday I went into Sephora to purchase Coralista by Benefit and at first glance it is exactly the same color as shy blush and after swatching it I left without purchasing it. It is a very VERY similiar color as well as orgasm.

I have light/medium skin that's more cool-toned and this blush is very flattering. My biggest complaint about this blush is that it's not very pigmented. I feel like I have to apply several layers to get the color I want. However, if you are new to makeup this is a good blush to start with because it'll be hard to overload the color on. Also, it's easier to get a more "natural flush" from this color.
I bought this online from Touchofpink cosmetics so I got it cheaper which is good for someone on a budget. However, this blush is intended to be inserted into a "custom compact". I do not want to buy the compact so I've been keeping it in the little plastic case that it comes in. Not the prettiest thing but for something that I'm not planning on carrying around with me it works well.
I think I would buy this again, but I wish it were more pigmented.

I like the texture of MK's updated blushes, they are very sheer and blendable and feel really soft on your skin. The problem is the colors, they are so clownish and 80's looking IMO. The only color they have that I do like is sunny spice, which is a lovely neutral tawny. I have tried shy, strawberry cream, bold berries and cherry blossom and all of them are just too much. Shy in particular has way too much metallic gold shimmer.
Age: 30-35 Skin: Other, Fair Hair: Brunette Eyes: Green
Very pretty color but SO MUCH SHIMMER it is ridiculous! It really is borderline glitter and really turned me off to the product. No matter how much powder I applied over it to try to negate the shimmer, it was still alll over my cheeks. Will not repurchase :(
