I follow the technique used by the MUA in the video on this product's page on Sephora. As usual, with the appropriate amount of product, apply to apples of cheeks, then blend up the cheekbones. To finish, blend the remaining pigment up to the area above the ends of the brows for a natural full face glow.
Their most popular shade is rightfully so because it is seriously universally flattering: it really will look lovely on every skin tone. I use shade Madly when I'm going for a more natural look.
Another reason this will always be the best blush around is because of how long the pots last. Basically, I'm embarrassed to say how long I've had pots last! Yes. They are expensive. But you are definitely getting your money's worth!
At first when I got home and swatched it on my arm, I thought it was more of a bright peachy tone. A couple times since then, I’ve thought about using it but I thought it wouldn’t go with the eye makeup looks I was doing and would be too peachy and pink.
Well, I finally just decided to use it even though I thought it wouldn’t go that well with the colors I was using and OMG. Whatever color I saw on my arm was not the color I was seeing on my cheeks. It was like it changed to fit the exact shade I needed to look subtle, classic, and just...good. I was amazed. It really does do such a good job of blending into your skin and looking amazing with your skin tone.
I can’t wait to use it again!
Orgasm is a nice blush that gives a nice peachy pink color. It has has gold sparkles in it, however on me it does not show that way. The only thing I don't like about this is that after a fair amount of uses it becomes weird and crusty over the top and even with scraping the top layer off of it it still goes back to being crusty on the top... I will update with a picture later... I'm not sure how to fix this issue with it. It's like a layer of film or something on top and the blush just doesn't work the same like when i first got it.
