Review for: Orgasm more...
I’m not a huge blush person to begin with and I usually give
away any blushes I receive in sample packs, etc to my other friends because I
don’t really use blush, but I decided to give the NARS “orgasm” bush a try
since it’s so raved about and I definitely saw what I was missing out on. I
thought the color of this blush was absolutely perfect for me because it does
add some pink color to my face, but it’s more subtle (I apply it lightly)
rather than me looking like I have clown cheeks lol. I’m really pleased with
this blush and the quality of it, there’s not a lot of fall out from this
powder as well which is great!

Nars makes great blushes that last upwards of 12 hours. They are super pigmented so be careful during application, you only need to barely tap your brush to the color and you will have enough for both cheeks. I love this blush formula and have both of the wanted blush palettes because it gives me a great selections blushes to choose from. I do prefer liquid blushers but I like to have a powder on hand to reinforce the liquid and keep it there all day and this blush works great on my skin.

This is by far my all time favorite blush and will forever be a staple in my beauty bag. It goes on beautifully, and works for a wide range of skin types and colors.... it is truly so flattering! I love the hint of shimmer that this blush has and really gives the effect of both a blush and a highlighter all in one on the cheeks! I would 100% recommend this to anyone! There is a reason that this has landed a reputation as a “cult-favorite” in the beauty community!

I really don't think you can ever go wrong with a NARS blush of course they have their iconic O***** range. The product itself is very nice it has a lot of color payoff so be sure to tap off your brush after swirling in the blush. The color can really take on a blush and a highlighter at the same time. It has sleek black matte packaging. It is going to be on the more expensive side. But I have never ran out you have to use some little.

My favorite blush. This formula it's simply perfection. No matter if your skin type is dry, oily, or combo. It is highly pigmented, but goes on sheer, making it highly blendable for that perfect natural wash of color. It is also fairly easy to build upon, if you're looking for a less sheer look.

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!

I have been using this shade since my twenties and it is one of those naturally gorgeous hint of color and sheen that I still use twenty years later. It just gives your cheeks the healthiest glow and the color is flattering winter or summer. I have tried other blushes but I always come back to this. It’s no wonder it is so popular, I highly recommend it for most skin tones.

Review for: Orgasm more...
I received this as a bonus 500pt gift from Sephora. I’m not a fan of the shade “orgasm” because it is far too pink and sparkly. The sparkles really over-do it for me. It gives off a cheap and unnatural look with my complexion — something a preteen would wear. I’m in my late 20s and have a different type of aesthetic/appeal. I am however, a fan of their other shades.

Nars is my go to for blush. If you really want a beautiful, long lasting blush Nars is the answer. I feel like they are known specifically for their amazing blushes, although they do have many other great products. Orgsm is extremely beautiful on any skintone!

I use this blush on almost everyone. I also wear it every single day. It has the perfect blend of pigment, sparkle, and natural glow. It looks great on every skin tone and is extremely blendable. After I apply, I go over it with the brush I used for my foundation (no extra product) and it helps everything to blend naturally and seamlessly.

NARS Blush is my perfect blush and definitely my favorite. I have used this for years because the shade is perfect, adds a very subtle shimmer, and lasts long on the skin. The compact also lasts me almost a year using it every day, so it’s a good value as well! The name of my selected color won’t post, but you can connect the dots!

I really want to try this, but I can't see myself spending about $30 on a blush. Do you know of any good dupes?

I have been debating on splurging on the Nars blush "orgasm". Is it really such a great shade? And does it look good on light skin tones?

I am thinking on purchasing this product, but how pigmented is it?I have an olive skin tone and some blushes appear very dark on me, others don't appear at all! How do you think this blush will show up on my skin?
