The NARS ORGASM BLUSH is a pretty hyped up product. It gives my NC25-30 skin tone a nice warm glow during winter whilst leaving a faint hint of colour. This is not an overpowering corally-pink shade but can be built up. I focus the product on the inner cheek area giving me a 'innocent' kind of look but putting it on the outer perimeters, of my face, also works.
I find that the sparkly particles are too large in size and that the chunks are very noticeable. It clashes when I wear highlighter as well. But I do like this product for everyday use (for a bit of colour on the face during the winter months).
I received this as a gift because I couldn't face paying that much for a blush but I think it does work well in my collection.

I like the sleek look of the packaging but it doesn't get messy and collects makeup.
Overall, a decent product.. satisfying many.

If applied with a light hand, this looks great on my NC 20 (maybe a bit lighter) skin - I have green eyes/blonde (sometimes strawberry blonde) hair.

It does emphasize pores, so I top off the cheek area closest to my nose with a very matte, very light pink shade, but just a dusting to disguise my pores.

I am cool-toned but this doesn't look too warm on me, which is always a concern. I can't use brown eye shadows or I look like a corpse - it hasn't been an issue with this shade.

Pros:
- sleek packaging;
- no useless brush included;
- it lasts from 9 to 5 without reapplying.

Cons:
- I don't love this color on my warm-toned light-medium complexion;
- there are lanolin alcohol, cetyl acetate (both highly comedogenic) and parabens among ingredients. I have breakouts when using it;
- I don't like shimmer, I find it looks cheap on me;
- packaging gets dirty and attracts all the dust.

Can't recommend, won't buy again.

On my nc32 skin this never shows up. All I get is faint glitter. Because it's a cult product I wanted to really like it and it keeps showing up in advent calendars and beauty boxes so it must be something people want. But it's a massive no from me.

There is a lot of hype around this. It is a pretty, peach-y pink shade with gold shimmer. I think it looked nice on me (NC30). I got a mini of this as a sephora bonus. Even this mini will last me for a good while because this has nice color payoff. This cult favorite is worth trying once. And if you decide you like it, i doubt it will be discontinued or reformulated. I have a mini in Goulue as well and wish NARS would add these minis to the regular lineup or do a set of these minis as a special or holiday. Please!

This is a very pretty blush. However, it is not 'universally flattering' as so many people claim. It definitely looks ashy on deeper skintones (if you're darker and want a nars blush that works like orgasm, I think torrid would be a good one to try), but for a lot of fairer people like myself, it looks great. I don't have an issue with gold shimmer. I do prefer my hot mama blush from thebalm more, which is similar to this, but peachier instead of pink. But if you really like a pinky, slighty peach shimmer blush for a nice sheen, and don't mind spending a decent amount of money, this one is a good pick.

I guess I'm one of those unfortunate souls who did not like this product at all. I waited years to buy this and tried out several shoes before I finally just went into Sephora and bought it once and for all. I found the colour payoff to be patchy and non existent. The gold shimmers in here were a million times more prominent than the pink colour ever was.

I remember trying this blush years ago when it first came out. I did not care for it then as I felt like it was too shiny. Fast forward 5+ years and I decided to give it another chance based on a youtube video by a MUA I really like and he recommended it for mature skin, so I figured I would give it another try.

Here is the deal. As I have aged, I have lost what was once considered "luminosity." Where the hell did it go??? OH. It's just what happened as I aged? Super...not. Initially after I applied the blush, I looked at my makeup mirror and said - ugh! The sheen!! UGH!! So obvious. But when I saw myself in a mirror in natural light, it was a soft and pretty peachy flush to the skin. The gold made my face look more lively and gave it more dimension. I was given several compliments (one from my husband who NEVER notices things). IDK I think we have been taught for so long that as we age we should NOT use any shimmery products, and so we steer away from them. I think glitter is a huge NO NO, but this is a pretty shimmer and it gives my complexion more life.

I say give it a whirl if you've never tried it. If you are a woman of a "certain" age and have tried it in the past and you said "hell no," then I encourage you to give it another try. Sephora has an incredible return policy, so if you hate it you can always return and exchange it for something else.
