My friend actually gave me this on my birthday and I got to say, it's a really nice gift and she gave it to me as a silly joke as well cause of the name "deep throat." Umm, first of all, the name is gross. I know sex sells, but eww. I don't ever want to ever have to explain what this means to my kids. So i'll put a sticker across it haha
Secondly, the colour is highly pigmented! To me, a little much since I have really fair skin. So the colour is just too much for me. I try to be gentle and add only a hinty witty bit, and to no avail, it still looks too much on me (clown face). I don't like this product for that sole reason. I know others may find it nice because it's a high pigmented product, but honestly, I think it's just better to build up the colour anyway, so there sure are other brands out there that does a better job and less expensive. I learned the price tag on this thing and it's just unbelievable! No way will I buy a blush for that much. I love my friend but I kind of wished she got me something I actually like for less. Oh well, I'm still grateful though.

I adore this colour! My goodness!! I don't normally wear sorta peachy colours, I tend to stick to pinks. So this was new for me.
Great colour payoff! Not too pigminted but not too sheer where it takes numerous times to show the colour.. ill definitely be purchasing more blushes! P.s.. I love the name! Hah

looove this, this is my go to blush. I have super pale skin and this looks lovely on my cheeks. It's not extremely pigmented, so you don't have to be super careful dipping the brush.
It has a bit of shimmer but it's more noticeable on the pan than on the skin.

A beautiful color, even better than Orgasm to me.

I love this, it gives such a natural flush to NC30 skin with still looking pink. The glitter transfers to more of a sheen than shimmers which I like. The lasting power is pretty good, this can last 8 hours for me.

This is a lovely color.
Orgasm was a complete no go on my extremely blue based fair skin.
I received this color in the new Nordies exclusive "Voulez Vous" palatte, along with Dolce Vita -- of the two, this is the real winner (although Dolce Vita can be blended into this, or blended out, and doesn't go orange on my skin).
This shimmers, but without that Orgasm glitter, is luminous and warm on my fair skin, blends beautifully, and lifts my cool color quite naturally . . . which is no small feat for what is essentially a warm blush.
I didn't think Deep Throat could pull it off, but it did, much to my pleasure.
If you were underwhelmed by Orgasm, and have a lot of blue tones, this may be a Nars blush worth your time and money.

For me, this blush is very expensive but completely worth the price! A beautiful middle between peach and pink, slight shimmer but not so much as to be 'glitterball-esque' yet such a gentle shimmer that it can almost work as a slight highlight to the face as well as a gentle pop of colour. I am of a neutral undertone, but I do normally use NC20 to tone down redness but yes anyway, beautiful! Super thumbs up!!

Love this blush! I'm nc 40 and it looks beautiful on my skin! Enough said.

This is a very easy blush to fall in love with.
I guess to start I will say that I am light skinned, a nc15-20, with medium brown hair/eyes. I have a slight olive undertone, but mostly just yellow, and fair. -- so for reference that is my complexion/undertone.
Now back to deep throat. This isn't my *favorite* blush in my collection, but it is my favorite every day blush. And honestly, if all my blushes disappeared tomorrow, this would probably have to be the first one I replace.
This shade is just so natural, beautiful, easy wearable. And it doesn't conflict with any other makeup, or wardrobe, it is very not distracting.
Deep throat is of course, the slightly lesser known cousin of Orgasm. I had bought Orgasm a couple of years ago, and couldn't wait to get rid of it. I really disliked this blush. Orgasm is a light pink with gold glitter that is supposed to be *universally flattering*-- HOLY CRAP the GLITTER! I didn't find Orgasm to be particularly flattering, like it didn't look bad, but it definitely wasn't doing me any service-- it was just some generic pinkish color-- with an absurd amount of gold glitter to cover up the otherwise rather lackluster shade. I felt like this was a really "kiddie-ish" color.
That was the end of my affair with Nars. Then like literally a month ago I just so happened to swatch this in Sephora out of curiosity, and I am very happy I decided to give them another shot.
First off, even though it does have shimmer, deep throat isn't nearly as glittery. In fact, on the cheeks I hardly pick up any shimmer at all. This is great because I honestly prefer my blushes to be matte.
Orgasm is described as being a peachy pink with shimmer, and deep throat is described as a peach with shimmer--- I actually think that deep throat is more pink on the skin than Orgasm-- I guess because of all the gold glitter, orgasm looks a bit warmer on the skin.
Deep throat is a definite balance between peach and pink though. And I think anyone could pull off this shade. The blush is very much buildable, but I don't know if anyone darker than medium complexion would be able to enjoy this blush, because it is pretty sheer on the skin. I am very light, so I actually prefer the sheerness because I don't have to apply to carefully, or spend much time blending out the color. I actually think I could probably apply this without a mirror at all, and still walk out of the house looking fine.
This is the main factor that makes this blush my favorite *every day* blush. It always looks so natural and healthy.
I actually love this blush so much, that I bought amour two weeks after I bought deep throat, and I am thinking of picking up yet another. I can see why Nars blushes are held in such high regards. They are so much more pigmented than Mac, and have such a superior texture to Tarte, also the color selection is amazing and for the *most part* Nars blushes are pretty flattering to almost every complexion.
I am slowly falling in love with this brand, and am so happy I decided to give them another shot and try deep throat.
BTW, I love the name.
