I have brown asian skin and never really liked glittery stuff except for eyeshadows. I'm also not a blush lover either because I must admit that I find it hard to find blushes that would suit my skin color without looking unnatural or contrived. In fact all my blushes are bronzers. This is my first TBS blush and I got to say that it really looks good on me even though I did not expect it to show up on my skin.
Once this is on, it stays on so its always better to layer the product to build intensity. If you do make mistakes, there's always dry tissue to buff off the product. The glitters are very fine doesn't quite show and is very wearable for all ages. My mom is 56yo and I ended up giving this to her because she had a college reunion to attend and I didn't want her to look like a clown knowing her propensity for putting on the wrong shade of blush with just her fingers *sigh* I'm giving her a brush to remedy that.
Anyway this is a good blush and I bought another one again, but I'm just giving this 4 lippies because of the price. Packaging is very good and sturdy with a press down lock to open. I like this packaging better than the all-in-one line which seems very flimsy.

My sister bought me this blush for Christmas and I have used it everyday ever since!! It's always within my reach and I have to admit, in my opinion, it's the best blush I've ever used. Although, the only turn-off is that it's not really that cheap :/ I have found cheaper blushes, however, I prefer using this one as it suits my skin tone much more than some other ones.

I have the cream version- in the tube. And it's not a fave. The color is a bit too warm on my cool toned skin but what I really dislike is the shimmer. It's not glitter by any means but still too sparkly for my taste, makes my skin look even more oily.
Warning: a little goes a looong way. Start with a tiny amount and layer, can easily look overwhelming.

This product is an exact dupe of the nars orgasm blush. I really adore this colour, it makes you look fresh and the blush looks very natural. Would repurchase!

I have this for sometime now and I would say that its a great product. I disagree with the reviewer below me. It has great color pay offs. I'm also MAC NC 25-30 and I only need one swip for it to show up. It has a peachy pink color with gold shimmer? I think its really pretty but I dont use it as much maybe because its winter. It definitely really brightens my face and gives a nice healthy glow but not a natural glow if thats what you're looking for.

It is a reasonable price, but for an Orgasm dupe, I'd rather get the real thing because you get hardly any product with Body Shop and I have to use a fair bit to get it to show on my medium skin (NC25-30 for reference). I also can run a bit too pink for my liking, but other than that I will keep using it until I run out.

I bought this based on the great reviews here and because it is often mentioned as a good NARS Orgasm dupe. The shade looks lovely in the pan, (I'd say it's a peachy pink shade with gold shimmer), but unfortunately this ends up looking orangey on my fair skin no matter how lightly I apply. I persevered with it until it started breaking me out.
I gave it two points because I'm sure that this would look lovely on someone with different colouring and less sensitive skin than mine.

This is one of my favourite blush shade for summer! It is a wonderful peach(not pink as it mentioned on the package) colour with golden finish. Most products with gold shimmer tend to look cheap but this one gives a very healthy and sexy glow. Colour is buildable and it ranges from soft to intense depending on how much you use. One more pro is the vitamin E that it contains which i find very important for every beauty product.
The scent is barely noticeable which i consider to be a pro.
I also found this can be an exquisite eye shadow: i use 2-3 layers over a pearly champagne eye shadow and the result is a stunning velvety, extremely shimmery peach/coral colour perfect for summer!
I was really exited cause i found it on a big TBS sale for only 8Euro so i stocked up on this babe! Normal price is about 17Euro.
Unfortunately, lasting power is not very good.
When it comes to packaging, there's nothing special about it. It's black and silver and it mind sound chic but trust me, it looks cheapo. It actually makes me feel like a teenager again cause it reminds me of drugstore blush packages. I also think it's a major downside that there isn't a mirror nor a brush in it. So... 1 lippie off.
I recommend it for dark, warm and fair/medium complections. On dark complections, colour isn't noticeable but the golden shimmer works as an amazing highlighter. It lights up warm ones and gives a J.LO-like glow and when it comes to fair/medium ones it illuminates them and makes them look very healthly. But i'm afraid it's not good for very fair skins cause the golden shimmer looks kinda tacky on them (and this is why i avoid it during winter cause when my tan wears off, i go back to my natural fair complection). I think that cold pink, and cold mauve-ish shades are ideal for fair complections.
Finally, yes, i'll repurchase... If i ever run out of stock, that is *giggles*

I like this blush alot, like the name says it's a very pretty shade of golden pink that is very flattering on my skin. It gives a healthy glow, but is not super shimmery. I've also noticed that this blush photographs really well. It is almost a peachy pink, but still looks good on me, I have never found an actual peach blush that suits me.
Since it is a lovely combo of pink, gold, peach, etc. it goes with almost everything. It is nice in the summer and works great paired with my bronzer, but it is a nice blush anytime of year. I would most likely buy this again if I ran out, but I still have lots left. It's small, but lasts a long time. The packaging is simple, but very durable.

This blush have always been my favorite since I was 18-19 years old. I have been using it for years now and although I did try blushes from other high end brands and even blushes from Revlon, but this is still the best for me. It really helps creating a healthy glow on my skin particularly on my cheeks of course and yet it looks so natural. I often received compliments every time I wore it. What I like the most about it is that the color suits my skin perfectly and it stays long hours on my oily skin. There are also many selection of colors to choose from. The only cons are the price is a bit expensive and also the product packaging. The Revlon's blush packaging is way better than this, plus it even has a mirror on it which Body shop blush does not have but it is okay because the packaging looks hot anyway!

Pigmentation is awesome. I love the tiny little golden sparkles in it. It looks very natural but I probably wouldn't wear this in the summertime as it looks quite harsh. I wouldn't really see this as "my style" because I have quite fair skin. I still love this blush, however. I occasionally wear blush in the summertime but quite often in the wintertime, so if you're looking for an awesome winter find, this is it! Packaging is amazing. Very secure. (:

First you should know that I don't have the powder version which is shown on the picture, I have the creme version, which comes in a tube.
This is one of my favourite blushes, and believe me, I have quite a few!
It is a gorgeous colour with a teeny tiny bit of shimmer. It really shows up beautifully on your skin to create a very natural looking colour. This is very close to the way one blushes naturally.
You should be careful though, not to put too much on. Just a bit is more than enough, so this little tube (by the way, the packaging is really great, small and fits into any purse!) will last you super long.
Overall, this is a great blush and very natural looking.

I have the creme version of this that comes in a squeeze tube and I can definitely confirm that it's an Orgasm dupe. I got Orgasm and I swatched it next to one another and it's identical. If you can get your hands on this do, it's a gorgeous and flattering shade.

I've gotten this product as a gift from my aunt and it's my first TBS blusher, and I love it! I think it makes me look pretty hee (;
it last quite okay, it stays on me for hours. So I thought it wa weird when I saw that it doesn't last long on some. Maybe I'm lucky!
Will buy it after it finishes, only hesitation is the price!

The Body Shops Golden Pink is a beautiful peachy pink colour with subtle flecks of gold shimmer. I have heard numerous ladies say this is a definite dupe for NARS Orgasm, but since I have never tried the NARS blush I couldn't tell you for certain.
This is my favourite blush colour for the summer months as combined with my bronzer gives my skin a beautiful summery glow with a hint of shimmer. The shimmer is very fine so it doesn't give you that 'I've just been hit by a glitter ball' look but instead a healthy glowing look.
This blush costs around £8.50 in the UK which I don't feel is a bad price at all as the quality is good and this blush last's a long time. I have only just hit the pan on mine.
The packaging is that of a standard blush. A circular pot with a flip lid. The lid is silver with a clear window which allows you to see the blush colour easily. The only downside I have found to this packaging is that the silver does have a tendency to chip and peel off. I can live with this though.
Would I buy this blush again? Most definitely. It's an extremely flattering colour which I think would work on most skin tones. I'm pale with dark hair, but I definitely think this would work on darker olive toned skin too x

OK, well I feel stupid. I bought this on separate occasions without realizing it was the same colour - so I guess I have to say I'd buy it again, LOL!
This is a pretty, warm peachy pink colour with moderate gold shimmer. I don't think it is quite the same as Nars Orgasm, which I find to be much pinker and nowhere near as shimmery. Maybe if you layered Albatross on top, you might get closer to this shade. Not as pigmented as Nars though, but I don't mind as I have a tendency to layer cheek products like mad :-).
This leaves a subtle shimmer on cheeks and applied lightly can be used as a highlighter as well. Lasts OK on me too.
Have already bought again, ha ha!

I don't really use this blush so much for cheek colour, but i use it on a blush brush with a light hand all over my face and it imparts a really nice glow. I like the gold sparkles as it complements my warm undertone. The product really goes a long way. I've had mine for close to 2 years now and there's still a lot of product. I don't use it as cheek colour simply because i don't like concentrated shimmer on my cheeks. But i do use it on the skin around my eyes(to the left and right side, not below it) and it makes me look awake. Perfect for nights and the pink colour only shows up on my skin if i use alot of it(which i don't) so its great for that use.

For reference: Eurasian fair to medium skin tone with yellow undertones. Closest foundation shade is Chanel Mat Lumiere powder in Sable. Medium to light brown eyes, dark brown / black hair. I purchased this blush as a result of MUA reviews stating this was a dupe of NARS Orgasm (which I haven't tried yet). Unfortunately I have "strong" features due to my bone structure, so I was looking to soften the contours of my face, which this product does to perfection.
Colour: this is a perfect blend of peach/pink/gold shimmer. Not one of these dominate, and the dreaded "dirty" look I normally get with peach-type blushes didn't happen. Instead what I got was a glow akin to taking a brisk walk in a cool autumn morning.
Pigmentation: I needed several swipes of my Lancome #6 blush brush to get a visible result - which I don't mind, because I prefer to be able to add subtly rather than having to tone down strongly pigmented colours. My Inglot blush brush also does an adequate job.
Lasting power: it lasted ok enough, however I did apply the blush after primer, liquid foundation and powder. My face eats up powder and so it wasn't surprising that it didn't last longer than 2 hours after I initially applied it on bare skin. But this isn't an issue with me as the product is small enough that it doesn't add bulk to my makeup bag, so I'm happy to retouch in the afternoon.
Recommendation: I would buy this again in a heartbeat, although I can't imagine this would be until at least 2 years from now. Ever since I purchased this 3 months ago I've barely made a dent despite everyday usage. This product would be perfect if the compact had a mirror, but this is only a minor quibble. What I mostly love is how youthful this makes me look, well at least for a little while longer anyway.

Beautiful, flattering color! It's fairly sparkly, but not in a cheap way, and it looks gorgeous in the sunlight. Someone commented that this product is too expensive for the small amount that you receive - I can't understand this criticism, because I've been using this blush almost every day for over a year, and it hardly looks like I've used it at all! A little goes a very long way, and it is cheaper than most department store brands. I definitely recommend this product, and this shade in particular.
