I picked this up to try as a cruelty-free dupe for NARS Orgasm blush. It's pretty close! And I can't believe the price point - I got it on sale on the NYX site for $3.

Pros: Super affordable. Really nice color. Very pigmented - this is going to last for-ev-er.
Con: Hard to blend (paired with how pigmented it is - you have to work with it a little).

Pinched is a really pretty pink blush with shimmery gold reflex in it. It is comparable to the Nars orgasm blush but the shimmer is significantly more subtle and flattering on the skin. Absolutely love this blush, only real downfall is the packaging, it is very cheap looking. In saying that though, it would be great to travel with, as it is so small and light!

I bought this because I was curious about NARS Orgasm but figured it might not suit my colouring. I read that this was a good alternative for warm toned people. I have an extremely yellow neck and body, but a very neutral face. I can pull off cool/neutral tones if I wear jeans and long sleeves. I wear around an NC15 - NC20 foundation so I usually buy warm toned products (excluding blush from now …Read more

The only reason I picked this up is because it's being touted as a dupe for Nars Orgasm. I'm a little disappointed, the colouring is pretty similar but the blendability is no where close. I have a fairly light complexion so when I apply this it looks a bit blotchy. Maybe I'm heavy handed? I have moved on to the Tarte blush in Fanciful..

Great colour! It took me a little while to learn how to apply it properly because I am very fair, but now that I've had some practice the colour really makes my skin and eyes pop!

I have a few blushes in my collection but there are only two I wear most often. This is one of them. For a long time I had been eyeing NARS Orgasm. Now that's a beautiful coral blush with golden shimmers. However it's one of those blushes that you can't really use everyday. So to pay $30 for a once in a while blush is absurd. That's when I decided to take a look a NYX Pinched …Read more

A pinky peach leaning more coral with gold shimmer.
On the skin it looks a little frosty in my opinion.
I am not a fan of the texture of these blushes especially the cheap shimmer which just looks juvenile. Not at all a glow.

Excellent! I had a Chanel blush for a long time & wanted to change it up. Always wanted to try Nars orgasm, but just can't afford it right now. I read a lot of reviews which said this was a dupe, & since it's way less expensive I thought I'd try it out.

It is awesome - peachy pink with a light shimmer. It's highly pigmented so a little goes a long way. I …

It's very affordable and it comes in a sturdy plastic case. The pigmentation is just right and I don't get a lot of fall out when I dip my RT blush brush on pan. It gives off a sheer pinkish glow with the slightest hint of shimmer. I was not expecting that a product cheaper than other drugstore brands can be this impressive! Worth every penny I spent!

This is my first blush purchase in over 10 years. I generally don't wear it and focus on just eyes and lips, but when I wear foundation with more coverage, I look too one-note, so I went looking for blush. After reading about how life-changing this color and brand is, I bought it on Amazon (our local Ulta doesn't carry this).

I'm NC20 and this was very pigmented on …
