this color goes on beautifully on my medium asian skin. it does look like nars orgasm but this goes on a little bit lighter, maybe more sheer and less peachy. i like it because i can use this as eyeshadow too. i don't own nars orgasm so i'm happy with this purchase. it's a rosey pink with peachy gold flecks or shimmer. the packaging is so adorable because i'm really into that girly cute stuff and a big plus for me is that it's 4g/.14oz yet it's slimmer or smaller than most of my blushes - mac, chanel, nars.
edit: i'm a little paler than i used to be and this shows up on me darker than it used to. i'm not too fond of the color anymore. it's a bit too red/fuschia-y and the peachiness only shows up when the light hits it a certain way.

If I have all the money in the world I will buy all Paul and Joe's face powders. Unfortunately I don't, so I had to choose very carefully, and I'm glad I chose this one. Quartz Rose looks very deep pink with subtle gold shimmer on the pan but on my cheeks it's a very complex and dimensional color. It gives me the perfect pink flush without looking like a Barbie doll. The shimmer is so fine you wouldn't notice it until light hits your face. I use this as a blush almost daily and as a light wash over my eye lids. Sometimes I like to layer it over my Stila CC's if I want more color or over #26 Amarante which is another beautiful face color. The packaging is exquisite and very femme, it's pink with embossed flowers on the outside and has a mirror on the inside. I've tried so many blushes but I think this is THE ONE I will use up! Retails for $18 and although that's expensive in my book, if I can use it as a blush and an e/s it's totally worth it! For reference I have medium-tanned Asian skin with yellow and slight olive tones.

Love the packaging on this stuff. Pretty pale pink/peach compact with flowers on it. This color is the perfect rosy peach on my MMM skin. I have tons of blush in this color palette (orgasm, LM opera, dandelion, flush sticks, and on and on) and this is my fav now.Also used as a highlight on smoky eyes.

Quartz Rose looks plain shimmery beige pink color in the compact and I was ready to return it immediately after purchasing. Then this underwhelming beige pink turned into the prettiest pink with slight peach on my cheeks. I get so many compliments on my skin when wearing Quartz Rose. The texuture and pigment are excellent and the compact is very sturdy and beautiful. Among my 70 something blushes in my stash, this is one color I keep going back.

If you are looking for a blush like UD X but with more pink, this is the color for you! Really silky texture and would look great on cheeks or eyes as well. Comes in a pretty pink mirrored compact.
