This is my 69th review on MUA and in honour of that very important mile stone, I chose to review Nars ORGASM blush...(hee hee!)
I'm actually quite surprised that I haven't already reviewed this product because it was the very first thing that I ran out and bought due to peer pressure...uh, I mean advice.... from this site.
This really is a great colour for my pale cool toned cheeks. It adds a lovely peachy pink hue and brightens up my face.
I do think that it is quite frosty and there's a little too much gold in it for an everyday staple, but on special occasions this blush does add a dash of POW to my look.
This acted as my gateway product into a deeper addiction to the NARS brand. I have found blushes that I like much better than Orgasm from NARS (Mata Hari, and Madly) but if it hadn't been for the amazing blendability, pigmentation and superiour packaging of this product I may never have branched out...
Would totally buy this again, but I don't imagine I will ever have to since a little goes a long way:)

This is a nice blush, sure, but I'm not quite sure what all the fuss is about. The name of the blush seems to be the most interesting part of it, because I really don't see much special here. It's a nice shimmery pinky-peach shade that almost every makeup line seems to have in their arsenal. So as far as the colour goes, I don't think NARS' Orgasm is anything all that unique. There are plenty of dupes out there.



NARS blushes, in general, are really great quality, so if you're just looking for a nice pinky-peach blush, Orgasm is probably a great choice for you. If you're buying it because of the hype about how 'it's a must have shade perfect for every skintone, blah, blah, blah,' it's a pass. If I had come to this blush without such high expectations created by all the hype, I think I would have been really pleased with it, because it is a nice flattering (on me, though I can't imagine it showing on really dark skintones) blush, subtle enough for everyday, but I like other NARS colours better. Sin is my personal favourite.

Nothing special! I stole this from my sister, lol. No actually I just use it and she doesn't even notice it's gone (apparently she didn't like it too much). I know she bought it due to all the rave reviews but I have to say it doesn't live up to his hipe. It's just plain average for me and doesn't last that long on my face either. It's not worth the price, I can find something better for so much less. So unless you have extra money laying around, I would not recommend this.

I really like this blush it gives a lovely color as long as you don't use too much with just the right amount of shimmer. On me it turns out more pinky than peachy but its a really lovely color if you dont use too much. However it is very expensive but I would purchase again because its very unique and I cannot find a similar enough color for a smaller price

This color only works on my skin in the winter and spring while Im a little more pale (use torrid in summer when tan :) But it is an AMAZINGLY natural looking blush with perfect amount of shimmer.

I didn't think this blush would look good on my skin, but I was wrong. This definitely has become my go-to blush when I'm rushing to get ready. I also think application is key as well as what brush you use. This blush can be come over kill very fast if you're not using it right. I do agree with some others on how it does get a little messy, but that's easily fixable.

I swapped Mata Hari for this and I am SO happy with it. I think it is a beautiful peachy colour with just the right amount of shimmer. Could you buy a cheaper product that would be comparable? Sure, probably, but you would have to find it first. I believe Score of the Urban Decay Afterglow blushes if very similar, just a bit lighter....Would I get this again? Maybe, but I think I would like to try Urban Decay first....:)Hate to buy the same thing twice, normally. Has to be amazing for me to do that.....One lippy off for price.

I got this as a christmas gift, and went home and tried on. It was very pretty, just not as great for all the hype it was receiving. I don't know what I was expecting but, I have other blushes that give me the same effect. I would compare it to E.L.F's bronzy type blushes and they're only $1.00. People ask me if I'm wearing "Orgasm" all the time and I say, "No it's by ELF." No doubt orgasm is gorgeous, just not that gorgeous for the price! :) I returned it and picked up some other goodies instead!

First of all, I'm not a big fan of glitter blushes - because I think it makes it look a bit fake. But I have to say, this does get compliments. I use this when I'm going out with my girlfriends, or if there's a special function I have to go to as this can be very pigmented on my NW15-NW20 skin. While it can be quite expensive (as compared to MAC), the pot is very small. And the bad design of the pot to have rubber casing is just wrong because powder will tend to stick to rubber and this can create quite a mess, which is why I gave it 4 lippies.

Got this in a swap because I wasn't going to pay for it since it's expensive. The color is gorgeous, and like other reviewers have mentioned, you need to go light with it if you don't want shimmer overload. I'm glad I got to try it, and while it's pretty, I think you can achieve a similar look with MAC MSFs or other blushes, so I wouldn't get it again.
