I never tried nars before, but i always hear a lot about nars orgasm(its probably just the name, that atracts everybody) so i decided to buy it, its nothing special, if you like the color(which i do), then you have to get chanel fandiango the new color they came out with, almost the same as orgasm, and smells awesome

way too much glitter, if you like to reapply face/blush halfway through the day this turns muddy and glittery and on me, messy looking. I am sure that if you have very smooth, refined, normal skin then you wouldn't have the same negative reaction I did, it seemed like it just didn't quite mesh with me.

Have this in my kit for almost 3years. Sad to say that the rubber finish on the packaging has melted even though I don't expose it to heat or any direct sunlight. (maybe it's the humidity here? Philippines). Now all the powder, dust & shimmer is sticking to it like glue & won't come off!
The product itself is lovely. But I prefer pink-based blush as opposed to peach-based coz I'm fair. Fine-golden shimmer adds a multi-dimensional dewy effect on the cheeks. Very youthful but warm shade, if you're an olive or tan it would look great. It takes me three to four applications for color to even show on me.

so i received this in a swap and i'm glad I did. at first I thought it was just a over hyped blush that's nothing special. but i put it on today on my cheeks and it just brought some colors to my cheeks without it being too much. i quite like it even though i've only used it once.

Love it. Great color and long lasting. I have pale skin and it looks lovely. I wear it pretty much everyday to give color to my skin.

Subtle shimmer and next time I might try super orgasm.
The packaging is really nice as well. Good quality.

I am a MA for photo shoots; run way show, magazines and head shots. This is the best blush to be wearing while being photographed. Beautiful on nearly every skin tone that I have worked with over the years.

I love this product and it is great for summer! I only use NARS and MAC blushes and this is my top NARS and I use it every other day (just about)

Another HG (have to give it up for the Sephora salesperson who picked this out for me). I went through several pricey blushes looking for that perfect summery, fresh pop of cheek color that wouldn't make me look like a clown. It's got a bit of peach, pink, and gold that works well with my yellow undertone. I slide the brush lightly across the compact then tap most of it off before applying. A little goes a long way! And the color stays fresh from 9 to 5. Definitely a keeper.

Only complaint: hate the rubbery coating on the compact, it just collects dirt and dust... but on second thought I've been known to drop compacts, and maybe the rubber will prevent the (expensive!) cake inside from falling apart.

Ah, Orgasm blush. It was so very nearly not so. I remember the first time I tried this lovely blush. I'd heard about Orgasm and its enviable status as secret makeup weapon of the stars, so off I toddled to Harvey Nicks to try and, hopefully, buy.


Half an hour later, I'm sitting at the Nars counter while the assistant helpfully flutters a brush-full-o-blush over my cheeks. Alas, here is where the dream almost ended.


"I can't see it!" I wail, as she holds a mirror up for me to survey her handiwork. Disappointed, I purchase a lipgloss and go my not-so-merry way.


So I'm on the train home when I decide to slick on my new lippy. I flick open my makeup mirror and am taken aback by the gorgeous, peachy glow staring back at me. Closer inspection reveals that yes, it's the Orgasm blush. Clearly the lighting in the shop wasn't right, so the following week I return to the Nars counter, somewhat sheepishly, and buy one on the spot.


I've been an ardent fan of Nars blushes ever since, and have since acquired Deep Throat, Desire and Angelika, all wonderful blushes in their own right, but Orgasm is the one I find myself returning to again and again and again. It's well-pigmented and contains a little sparkle, but it's totally natural-looking on the skin. It warms up my complexion like no other, transforming me from pale and washed-out Brit to California beach babe in just a few sweeps. And miraculously, it seems to suit every complexion, as my darker, sallower and redder-toned friends attest.


So if you only ever buy one blush in your life, make sure it's this one. It's pricey but it lasts, and it's worth it.


*EDIT* I've noticed some people aren't keen on the glitter in Orgasm. If you fall into this category, then Deep Throat should be a good alternative for you. The shade is similar, perhaps a smidge darker, and contains no glitter, though it does have a healthy shimmer.

I love this blush. The colour is nice and peachy with some natural shimmer. It lasts througout the day on my oily skin. The packaging is good, and it has a convenient little mirror in the lid.
