I have this in a duo with Laguna Bronzer. I really do like this product - as other reviewers have said, it gives you a flushed glow, it's buildable, it looks great on many skin tones (I'm pale, but darker skinned friends have borrowed it and it looks great on them, too). It also lasts - I rest my face in my hands a lot during class, and I don't find traces of blush on my fingers or palm as I have with other products. HOWEVER, this is just so expensive. As a student, I don't know if I can justify a repurchase just because there are so many other totally acceptable and far more affordable blushes out there.

I think this blush is a bit overrated. The only good things about this blush is the colour and the packaging. However, as for the colour, I can easily find a very similar colour from another brand for a much cheaper price--which leaves the only good thing to be the nice packaging. I like how it gives my cheeks a very natural, pink-peach flush. I would say this blush is more pink than peach. It's close to the colour that I want but not peachy enough.
Overall, I think this product is overrated and overpriced. I don't find the blush to be exceptionally creamy or easy to blend. Nor do I think it is any more pigmented than other brands. Thus, I would think this is an okay blush.

I first bought this blush because of all the hype I heard about it. Well I am glad I did because I absolutely love this blush. I have really fair skin and most blushes show up too harsh on my skin. This blush goes on light and I can build it up to a darker shade if desired. It matches my natural flush perfectly and gives me a nice glow. It is totally worth the price, I will defiantly be buying this again and will probably have to do so soon because I use it almost everyday! Only compliant I have about this product is the packaging, it gets really dirty and is hard to clean.

So, I bought the NARS Orgasm blush as a duo with the Laguna bronzer and so far, it's good. I don't understand what's the HUGE Huge huge hype about this product because it's not THAT great. What I do like about it is that it has great pigmentation, good amount of sparkles/glitter, and it gives that nice not-so-overly-pink color on your cheeks to warm up your face. I don't like the price and I'm sure I can find other blushes that are just as good for a much cheaper buy. I much prefer my L'Oreal True Match Super-Blendable Blush (I'm deeply in love with it).

Another fan of "Orgasm" !! I've given it a fair chance and decided that I like it!! It looks really good on my skin in broad daylight, which is very important... Nothing looks more hideous than bad/excessive/too dark/too bright blush in that kind of light.... The shade of this blush is very versatile; it leans in both directions, warm and cool so it multitasks quite well.... The sparkle is just right, just enough to pick up flashes of light and cast a soft glow.. Very tasteful, not gaudy at all.. I find that it's also VERY long wearing; it sticks to my skin and doesn't budge til I remove it, very nice.... I have to agree, the price is insane!! But I really like it and will probably buy it again.... :)

This is a nice blush which is appropriate for day and night. I usually apply it with a stippling brush for a hint of color that brightens up my face, but sometimes I apply it more heavily with an actual blush brush but find that it is easy to apply too much. Honestly I don't think its that sparkly...maybe its just because I'm not packing it on and to be honest if you don't want any glitter in your blush at all you should probably be avoiding the majority of NARS blushes in the first place.

I don't think it stands up to all the hype (which I'm guessing grew out of its name), but I think the reason that so many people with differing skin colors and tones have loved this is because there are many different ways to wear it. I think that if applied lightly anyone can achieve a healthy glowy effect, but if you prefer to wear more noticeable blush then its going to be hit or miss based on your personal coloring.

It may be perfect for some people, but its not the greatest blush in the world. I rated it a 4 because it is fairly expensive and I'm sure there are cheaper alternatives out there.

It's a nice shade but way to sparkly for my taste. When I use it I find that I have to blend it with a powder blush to get a more natural look. I'm to old to be wearing all those sparkles. A nice matte peachy pink shade like Smashbox's Muse I bought a month or so ago. It's subtle but lasts all day. It gives me that naturally flushed healthy look.

This blush is a great color but lacks everything else I am looking for in a blush. I like it to look natural and like this color is coming from "within", instead its bright and sparkly and wears off pretty fast. I have found nearly the exact same color in other brands that aren't sparkly, last longer and are cheaper... I'll use it up then forget I ever heard all the raves.

I decided to give this a try to see what the hype was about. I'm pretty pale, so I was sure this wouldn't work well on me, but it actually looks about perfect. A lot of blushes make me look dirty, but this has the right balance of peach and pink tones to look quite natural. The consistency of the product is perfect, and you don't need very much at all to brighten up your face. I like the subtle sparkle it has, too. Just enough to bring light to your cheeks without looking gaudy or glittery. I really want to try the Albatross highlighter now! My only slight issue with this is that it is the only blush I've ever purchased that didn't come with a brush. This makes it a little harder to travel with because I now have to pack a blush brush, which is not part of my usual travel brush set. For the price, you'd think they could put a brush in there.
