This blush is okay, there are other Nars blushes I like better, I think this one is a bit rashy looking on my pale slightly cool skin, its probably just to warm for me. I mean this is a decent product but now a must have unless it really suits you...and it doesn't seem to suit everyone. I'd buy other Nars blushes again but definitely not this one, it just didn't blow me away.

I so agree with Bonbon. I tried this at Sephora after it was highly touted in magazines, books, etc. II was not at all impressed and it had too much sparkle or something. Not flattering on my light to medium Asian skin. I also tried a number of Stila convertible colors but not impressed with any of them either. The saleslady at Sephora suggested Clinique blushwear cream stick in Rosy Blush. Wow! Just the pop of color I needed. Sephora is great for "try before you buy" and I really suggest you do this with Nars Orgasm because it may not work for you.

Basic, daytime blush

I have no complaints, awesome formula, however, not a super product

I don't see too much in the sparkle area, the amount is just right. I don't think it's universally flattering, but it fits a lot of ppl

My HG blush! This is a perfect pinky-peach color that looks quite natural on my skintone and makes me look nice and rosy yet not overdone. I apply this with my MAC 129 blush brush just to the apples of my cheeks after my bronzer and I get a nice glow. This stuff is light and buildable and a little goes a long way. It will take me a very long time to use this up, but when I do run out I will definitely repurchase! The price is fairly expensive as with all Nars products, but the use you get out of this justifies the cost in my opinion. Only with they would change up the packaging. The case is made of that rubbery material and all of my powder gets stuck to it and makes the case look like a mess. Other than that though, this blush is great, esp. on my fair-medium asian skin.

I like Nars products and when I read an article in my Glamour mag about this blush, I had to try it. It read, perfect for ANY skin tone. I am fair but tan easily and have gold/yellow undertones. Peaches look good on me but it's very hard to find that perfect peachy tint for your cheeks. Either they are way too orangey or too grandma looking. Anyways, I bought this, tho I was reluctant after seeing the price. It's pricey and they don't give you a whole bunch. The color is perfect tho. Very peachy/pink with flecks of shimmer. Very pretty during summer and gives you a wonderful healthy glow. Use sparingly tho, because if you apply too much then you look like a clown. Another complaint is the name! It's very embarressing when someone asks, "what color are you wearing?" and you have to mutter, "orgasm"! Plus not so sure the names are great for teen girls. All in all despite the funky name and price, it's a great color and product!

I kept seeing rave reviews for this product no matter what skin tone and had to go try it myself. I went to Sephora, tried it and bought it the same day. I always looks for great peach blushes as they are very natural and flattering for me. Yet, they are so hard to find. This is beyond perfect! It lasts forever and I can't imagine ever being without it. The little gold flecks imparts the most gorgeous look of glow from within. I can't say enough about this blush but to go out and try it for yourself! Yes it is expensive, but it is worth it. The compact is designed perfectly. It is simple, doesn't take up tons of space, and isn't tricky to use one handed.

I hate to be the dissenter here but I just cannot understand the hype. I'll admit, the packaging is great and it looks beautiful in the pan, but even though I have very pale skin I have to pile it on to make it show, not to mention the overwhelming shimmer! I can imagine this being lovely on honey coloured skin as a highlighter but it does nothing for my ghost-like pallor.

i had never seen this blush in person, so when i received it after ordering online i was kind of shocked by how bright it is. it doesn't look like the pictures.

that being said, i do like it. i'm very fair skinned so i have to just lightly tap my brush on the surface or it will be too much, but i've mastered it. it's a really gorgeous color. it doesn't look as natural on me as it might on some others because of how bright it is, but it definitely isn't garish.

that said, i'm still looking for a blush that looks like this one does in pictures.
