Awesome blush across the board! It's a super cheap orgasm dupe. You can make a light sheerness or a fuller opaque effect. Its also very long wearing which is an issue with blush for me. It put it on in the morning and their is still a good amount of it left when I come home from work. Best orgasm dupe available, I highly recommend it over Mark Afterglo and Milani Luminous!

I think this blush is just average - not great, not bad. I'm not familiar with Nars Orgasm blush so can't speak to that. I also didn't see any sparkles in this. Afterglow can be built from sheer to more intense. However, I found the formulation a tad chalky and it seemed to just "sit on" my skin rather than looking natural. Perhaps this is just because I've been using cream and gel blush more often lately and am not used to powder anymore. It also seemed a bit too cool for my very fair, yellow skin tone. I can see this working great for lots of people, just not for me!

I LOVE this blush. Beautiful color, wonderful staying power, for like six bucks! FANTASTIC. I would definately recommend and re-buy.

Did my research before today's visit to Ulta, and this was on my list of "check it out" items. Honestly, the swatch on my hand wasn't all that impressive, but I took a chance and bought it anyhow (the BOGO didn't hurt, either). Sooo glad I took the chance, too! This is absolutely beautiful on the skin; much more pigmented and natural than the swatch led me to believe. I'll buy this again in a heartbeat!

Afterglow is my HG blush. I first tried it in an Ulta blockbuster kit and hit pan. I'm fair with yellow undertones and this color is just perfect for me. It gives me color while also looking natural. The price is great and one of the reasons I love this, but the quality and color payoff rivals high end. This blush lasts on me and looks good in photos. Ulta brand doesn't test on animals, which is a factor I choose when supporting a product. Afterglow is an all around, every day and special occasion blush. For this price, get it!

Great blush that is VERY similar to NARS orgasm with smaller flecks of glitter which, to me, makes it better. Nice warm pink, can build intensity which I like, jsut enough of a sparkle to notice but it's not overwhelming. My only complaint is I would like ulta to make ALL of their blushes in a larger pot. Other than that it is a MUCH cheaper alternative to NARS.

This blush is really nice. It is highly pigmented, but you can also get a thin wash out of it if you use a good brush. When I first got this, I hated it but now I use it everyday under my blush of youth beauty powder from MAC. And it IS in fact comparable to NARS, as I have swatched it in the store. The only difference really is that NARS' version is much more sparkly. I would prefer this blush anyday.

This blush is a very warm pink with small gold specks and it's been very complementary to my NC25/30 skintone. The gold fades very quickly, leaving behind a very matte warm pink that's feels pigmented and didn't fade throughout the day. I was disappointed that the gold faded so quickly but otherwise I'm happy with it and I might repurchase.

This is the rouge that I wear almost every day. My best colors for rouge are the peachy/pinkish ones. Just like Afterglow. It looks extremely natural on me, and the hint of shimmer is subtle and gorgeous. I've been using this for almost two years now, and I can't even think of going back to my former rouge, which just happened to be rather high end (Lancome).

My HG blush. <3
I used to love Cargo's BeachBlush in Sunset Beach. However they seemed to have changed the formula, & now its too warm toned + shiny.
So I set out to find a different blush. I needed one that would look good on my super cool toned skin, give me a glow, & be high quality as well. This fit my preferences, perfectly. AND FOR ONLY $7!
Afterglow is a very beautiful pink color with gold sparkles to give you a healthy glowing appearance. It's a pretty small pan, but you definitely get more than the bang for your buck. ;) My first one lasted me 3 months with daily use!
You can use it on your "no-make up" days or build it up for a dramatic look.

I'm so excited that I bought this blush, it rocks! I assumed this was a Nars Orgasm dupe, because I've never tried that blush but always wanted to (too pricey!), and when I tried on this Ulta "Afterglow" blush, my face looked exactly like I had just had one of those, um, very special moments. Afterglow is a perfect name for this blush, and it's far more subtle and ladylike than the Nars product's name. Not that I'm easily offended or fragile--I'm not--but I do like being unembarrassed when I tell my mother-in-law the name of this blush in recommending it to her, because she'd look great in it.
I've never been a blush-obsessed person, I'm much more interested in eyeshadows, but I can totally see why people rave about Nars Orgasm. If it's anything like Ulta Afterglow, it's not just a blush, it's a beauty event! Luckily, I can get that look for just $3.50 after the BOGO discount, and that's for a full-sized product! I am so in love. . .

I got this blush as a part of a travel pallete and I love it! I'm not sure if this is the color or not, but It looks close! I love the blush and I use the smashbox fan brush for application for a very light pinch of color!
*the 1 for packaging is because It came in a pallete that I depotted it from*

Do you like bright red/pink/sparkly blush on your skin? Then run, don't walk to your local Ulta store (don't even get me started on those hot messes of stores) and get this product.
I guess I don't like it because I'm the only person on earth who doesn't like NARS Orgasm. On me, light skinned, yellow undertoned, rosacea pink cheeks, this looks streaky and bright red. Perfect for highlighting any redness you have on your cheeks.
Trash bin, here comes another bad blush.

I got it as a gwp and it's huge! Its actually a little bigger than the size they normally sell.
I normally use matte blushes and save thing with shimmer and sheen for very special occasions. I wrinkled my nose at this blush because it had little good flecks in it. I tried it anyway because of the good reviews on makeupalley.com. I am so glad that I did. It makes me glow!!!! The sheen is subtle and I dont see any shimmer. I used this on a lot of friends and it looked good on them all from light olive to strong yellow skin.
*** upon longer use and reflection, I think that it is slightly chalky but this is not a terrible thing.

I also got this free in an ulta collection. its a full size blush and its really quite cute with the flower in it. Its very bright and makes my skin just glow. I usually wear this with the eyeshadow quad it came with (silk seashell sunburst and suede) and it looks amazing. but be careful! sometimes i tend to put a little too much on my brush and it can get super bright.. so a little goes a long way.

I got this free in a beautiful makeup set when you buy other Ulta stuff. It's awesome because in this set, it's a much bigger blush and it has a little flower sculpted in the blush. Although it looks a lot like my Nars Orgasm blush, it doesn't have as much shimmer. I love Orgasm, so this is a great alternative on my "not as shiny" days. If you love the whole Nars Orgasm line, try Ulta's lipgloss in Goddess-it looks a lot like Orgasm and a whole lot cheaper.

This is a beautiful coral pink blush, alot of people said its like the Nars O blush, but I find it similar to Benefit Coralista. I love this blush, wished it had shimmer more shimmer but it is a nice flushed color. I also agree with the other reviewer that Ulta makeup is underrated, it is a hidden secret but ulta makeup is actually made by a popular high end company but they dont spend alot on packaging therefore the cost of ulta makeup is in affordable range.

This color is an Orgasm dupe, except that it far exceeds Orgasm in quality, color, and finish. I love wearing this, it looks glowy but natural, not over the top. It comes off peachier than it looks in the pan, which is great for me. I got this in a swap, never would have bought it, so I am very pleased.

OK, so this is one of the many NARS Orgasm "dupes", so I had to have it. It is also amazingly inexpensive, I got it for $4 @ the President's day weekend sale. It comes in approximately the same size packaging as their single eyeshadows. This had good color payoff and nice texture. I applied with a SK Highlighter brush and just got a rosy "glow" on my cheeks which lasted through my 8 hour workday. The only real problem I have is the packaging because of the size. Other wise an excellent value for the money. I find ULTA to be a seriously underrated line of cosmetics. Mostly everything I have bought has been good quality and well pigmented.

the color itself is quite pretty, but there is so much glitter in it. i know this is a nars orgasm dupe so of course it has sparkle, but i guess i didnt realize i dont like sparkle on my cheeks. if you are looking for a good orgasm dupe on the cheap, you will love it. the quality of the blush is great, i am trading this one for another color that is a little more wearable for me.
