After falling out with Orgasm, I read a review somewhere (maybe here) that suggested Deep Throat would be good for girls who find Orgasm a bit too much. I tried it and I loved it. It's more pigmented than Sex Appeal, but less shimmery than Orgasm so the result is a beautiful peachy glow that doesn't look overdone. A little goes a long way and it's budge-proof (as with all NARS blushes) so I'm sure this will last me a long while.

Why the hell doesn't this blush get more hype that Orgasm?! I tried out Orgasm and I HATED it. Cakey, made me look sunburnt and the shimmer was just too much. I took it back to Sephora and exchanged if for this and let me tell you....heaven is real. This blush is amazing. Perfect. Exquisite. Luxurious. Beautiful. Flawless. I could go on and on.....The shade is a peachy pink colour that leans more on the pink side and it contains a very, very subtle shimmer to it and makes your cheeks look glowy and not like they're y'know...shimmering. This for me is my perfect flush shade, it is the shade that my cheeks turn after coming in from the cold so naturally this blush looks amazing on me (just for the reference, I have super fair skin with neutral undertones). I can definitely tell that there is a bit of a formulation difference between Deep Throat and Orgasm. When I used orgasm, the first time I swiped my brush across the blush, it had disrupted the product underneath and it already had a very 'used' look to it. I think it is because the formulation of that blush is quite heavy and silky and therefore, cakes up more. Deep Throat on the other hand is still silky but the product is very, very light feeling. For that reason, I would expect that Deep Throat would be the better formulation for those with oily skin. This was more of a comparison than a review but for those out there who didn't like Orgasm like myself, hopefully this re-instills your hope in Nars blushes because this product is fab and belongs in your makeup bag.

I love this blush not just because of the hype. It really gives me a natural glow on my cheeks and doesnt break me out. The pigmentation and staying power is amazing. It compliments mg skin tone and will compliment even fair , light or medium skin tones have I tried it on other people. They loved this blush as well but the only complaint is it is too pricey for a blusher but it is however a high end product. But you really should invest in good quality makeup because it gives you more confidence that you wont look like a clown and that there is a higher chance of breaking out on a cheaper product. The packaging also I didnt like it easily gets dirty but the overall product is a must. If youre just starting out exploring makeup this would be a good buy.

This is a great product. I have NC20-25, very yellow skin and this is a great natural, flushed look without being clowny. Very professional looking and can be built up with a contour and shimmer for going out too. I also own Orgasm (why are the names of these blushes so...yeah) and it shows up much more corally-peach with gold shimmer on me. I prefer Deep Throat on most days, but Orgasm looks good with a tan in the summer and you just want to smear some color on your face for the beach.

I did take off one lippie because NARS tests on animals and I wouldn't have bought this blush had I known that. Grrr.

This is just an amazing blusher!
First of all, when I got it, I was surprised to see it was much more peach toned than I expected from the pictures, but when applied it's the perfect combination of pink and peach, with a light shimmer.
I have very pale, very yellow toned skin, and tended to not use blusher at all, because most of them made me look very... Clownish? I waited for a long time to get this blush, as I worried this would just be more of the same. But it's not! It looks like the perfect natural flush on my cheeks. It is verrry pigmented though, so if you're pale like me, don't apply it too heavily.
While the product is quite expensive, it is absolutely worth the price!

I love this blush, it's beautiful. It's seems funny to me that people compare this to Orgasm. I think they are totally different, and that you can own both. This looks peach on me, and Orgasm looks like a peachy pink color with a gold sheen. I love them both, but I love Orgasm a tiny bit more. I do a lot of research first, and from what I read I wanted Deep Throat as my first blush from Nars. I initially went to purchase this, but I left with Orgasm, because it really is a beautiful color. I got DT later on, and I like to wear it in the spring or summer, and for times I don't want to wear a pink blush. I think it's my only non-pink blush, so I get a lot of use out of it. It's not one of their most pigmented shades, but you can build it up. I like Nars black, sleek and sturdy packaging as well.

First of All::: I have noticed that nobody here has noted the change in the Nars ingredient reformulation. It no longer contains parabens, dimethicone, lanolins and clog poring, comedogenic ingredients. It now has the Exact Same ingredients as MAC blushes, and in the same order.

Some people have noticed a change in the Orgasm blush. In the tone, more pigmented, and they say is darker. I never liked Orgasm, and I also reacted bad to the old formulation. So I will try again with Douceur blush. I will probably not repurchase because MAC blushes are still my favorite.

Please reply or write if someone notices.

This is by far my most favourite blush. At first I didn't understand what all the hype was about until I purchased it.

My intentions were originally to purchase Orgasm (the most popular), but when the lady at Sephora tried it on me, I was shocked at how orange and sparkly it was. Then I found "Deep Throat" (the name makes me laugh EVERYTIME).

I love the colour, it's a perfect mix of (in my opinion) coral and a soft pink, there is a little bit of shimmer, but nothing too extreme (ladies, glittler/too much shimmer on your cheeks looks tacky and cheap - STOP NOW!).

This is a perfect shade for the office, it's very professional. I love how it looks on my normal skin tone and it looked even better when I went to Cuba and got a tan, so I think it's great for all skintones.

After I've had the blush for some time (going on about roughly six months?) the blush crumbled in the case (no longer compact, it was "broken"). I ended up crushing the larger clumps and made it into a fine powder. Using a medicine driopper, I added rubbing alcohol to the powder and spread it out evenly in the NARS case. I let it sit over night (until it was dry) and VOILA! It was fixed! Instead of throwing out a $32.00 blush, I saved it! Ladies, a little DIY works out to be huge savings! :)

Sheer, fool-proof, baby peach with a teeny tinge of pink and no visible shimmer on my NC30 / C4 Asian light-tan neutral skin. The texture is lovely, soft and I can pile it on with no powdery effect. It is perfect for my complexion in the paler seasons and compliments any look since it is just a soft natural peach. Looks shimmery in the pan but it is not at all on the skin. Also, I think I am in the minority but I LOVE Nars packaging: slim, the matte black makes it easy to grip, and a nice big mirror. Don't think this color will show up when I am tan but it's great and easy for the winter / spring until I can revisit my stronger HG coral blushes come Summetime (Nars Amour, MAC Fleur Power). You really can't mess this one up!
