is Nars Orgasm blush worth it.

is Nars Orgasm blush worth it.

Postby lowkeyshittalker » Mon Feb 22, 2016 6:15 am

So i feel like everyone talks about Nars' orgasm blush. Is it worth the hype? i don't wear blush to often, but if it is as good as people are saying I just might haha!

If stress burned calories, I'd be a supermodel

If you don't wear blush often, it's not worth it. You're forking $$$ on something you might not use. Go test it out if you're curious. Also, Orgasm is not that life-changing. It's gorgeous on some people. It's meh on someone like me (neutral tone, fair to light skin)-- Deep Throat is where it's at for me -- less peachy, more pink and less shimmer.

i'm very minimalist with my belongings, i have two blushes: benefit benetint for a fresh natural tint for autumn winter and nars orgasm for spring summer. i still haven't found one that i love so much - it looks really nice on the skin and is buildable. i have very large pores and acne scars unfortunately but i don't feel that the shimmer in it accentuates them, just gives me a nice glow

i really really recommend it, i've tried others to replace it but i keep coming back to it

I think it's a pretty generic colour that there's a lot of dupes from. I've never tried NARS products since they're so pricey, so I don't know whether they're amazing compared to other products, but you might want to try the colour out before committing to such a purchase? I've had the Bourjois dupe in the shade Lila's D'or. I think NYX has a similar shade to that too, in the shade "Pinched" and wet'n'wild has so many peachy/corally pink blushes with gold shimmer in their Fergie line. If you don't like glitter I wouldn't recommend the Bourjois one, the glitter gets everywhere.

It's been hyped as a "universal colour" but I definitely don't think it suits every skin tone. I don't like it much on myself, on a pale pink undertones complexion.

Personally, I really like it. I also don't wear blush often - but when I do 90% of the time it is Orgasm. I am quite fair - blonde hair green eyes, so it shows up well on me, but still isn't too much. If it's actually worth the money, I don't know. There are a lot of very similar blushes that will give the same effect (as someone else already said), however if you want a good quality blush that you know will last and be good quality then Nars is the way to go

As said above,the color is super easy to find a cheap dupe of.

I don't wear blush that much but Orgasm has continually been one of my favorites over the years. Although I personally like it in the liquid illuminator form.

i bought it in that duo where it comes with the laguna bronzer and i've never regretted a purchase more. the blush really is gorgeous but i never found it to be particularly nice or flattering on my skin (i'm pale af). honestly you can find far better products (for way cheaper!) elsewhere.

I've had it before and if I remember right it was too glittery for me. Check out the Max factor creme puff blushes, they're amazing and very similar colours I adore them!!

I don't think so. If you have any hints of imperfect skin (discoloration, uneven texture...), the blush will accentuate it.

honestly, there are a lot of better blushes out there. i like nars blushes but i think orgasm is WAY too hyped---it's a pretty color but it does have some sparkle to it...i'm more a fan of matte blushes---i will sometimes grab orgasm during the summer but mainly, i'll amour or dolce vita from nars. benefit and ESPECIALLY tarte has some kickass blushes!!

it all depends on your skintone and if you like a natural blushing look! i believe it comes in a sample size (orgasm and laguna) so try that out if you are unsure about the full thing!

I settled on the sleek blush in rose gold. Not exact, the sleek is less pink but it was £5. With blush, by the time you've blended it out who can really tell?
I feel with most makeup, if you are willing to do the research there will usually be a dupe out there. I wouldn't spend that kind of money unless I know I'm going to use it.

I think Orgasm is great, as mentioned above Deep Throat is better for my fair complexion though.
I've owned orgasm for years and I'll stop using it for a while and then the day that I do I wonder why I stopped in the first place haha.
I think what I love about it is that I really don't find the need to blend it out. It just sort of effortlessly blends in with my skin.
I can make it really really dramatic but I don't.
I tried Milani Luminoso (sp?) which gets touted as a dupe but I found it really ugly on my skin and isn't a dupe at all (maybe just the one I got? but I found it hella orange)

It is very glittery and very dupable. It also doesn't look that great on my skin, I have a cold pale tone to my skin. I wish I hadn't bought it actually. I much prefer Exhibit A to Orgasm, it looks much prettier and definitely works for every skintone. The positive thing with it, in my opinion is that it's so subtle it's hard to overdo it, so it's good for every day.

I really liked the blush. It gave such a nice flush. But if you don't wear blush often, maybe you could look for a dupe instead of spending as much money on this one item?

Just putting my two cents out there in case there are some darker skinned ladies who are wondering whether Orgasm is worth the hype,

I have NC42 skin tone and I recently gave in and purchased Orgasm, and I can honestly say that I am so happy with it! It shows up beautifully on my skin (I was so worried that it would look chalky/greyish due to my golden undertone, but it only accentuates it). It is also one of those blushes that you can use for ANY makeup look, whether it be a smokey eye, or natural day look. However, it does need to be said that there is quite a bit of shimmer in the blush, so if you do have uneven skin (tone or texture) the blush will accentuate the imperfections.

As with anything, though, if you're really unsure but have access to a Nars store/counter, get one of the makeup artists to swatch it on your cheeks :tu:

It's far too bright ans glittery for my tastes. Blushes that bright just look unnatural on my NW03-05 skin.

I find all blushes to be extremely similar, they must be one of the easiest things to dupe and the easiest thing to touch up as well!

I love NARS blushes but orgasm doesn't work on my skin tone. I do think the blushes are worth it.

I think for medium to deep to dark skin tones YES ABSOLUTELY.

But for light or fair I think unless you use a super light hand with it, and are putting it high on the cheekbone....you're going to look like a drunk old man. It's way too pigmented, it's pink and peach at the same time and it has shimmer, which is a lot for light skins.

I'd much prefer to go with hourglass, they're finer and the tones are more complimentary for all women. I feel like orgasm is very one dimensional.
I'm only interested in myself.
