NARS Orgasm Blush

It’s Wednesday and that means it’s exactly 24 days until my Birthday, woo hoo!!! Today I have a blush review! NARS Orgasm Blush is an oldie but goodie. I purchased mine at Mecca Maxima a month ago with the gift card I won from Beauty Swatch. This is my ultimate dream blush, I’ve always wanted it but for some reason never bought it until now. This is my second NARS product, first being the Sheer Glow foundation which I haven’t used yet and only just discovered it didn’t come with a pump!! It’s such a lovely and good quality blush, I can see why there are so many glowing reviews out there.

The ultimate authority in blush, NARS offers the industry’s most iconic shades for cheeks. Natural, healthy-looking color that immediately enlivens the complexion. A light application of even the highest-intensity hues delivers a natural-looking flush.

The NARS Orgasm Blush is described as a peachy pink colour with golden shimmer. The shimmer gives your cheeks a glowy appearance and doesn’t scream glitter. The blush is more on the pink side than peach though. It’s very soft and pigmented, it showed up on my cheeks no problem. I applied this blush with my sigma angled brush.

What I love about this blush:

  • The colour is gorgeous, wayy prettier in real life
  • Stays on for a good 8 hours
  • Blends easily
  • The awesome packaging as with all NARS products – The rubbery exterior is great at preventing scratches and the mirror is helpful if you’re applying on the go

Well I can see why this is NARS’ most popular product, it has great colour payoff and finish. Last week, we bought our tickets to the US!! Heading there towards the end of the year for Thanksgiving. Black Friday sales here we come!! While I’m there, I’m definitely going to be stocking up on more NARS blushes. These blushes retais for $45 in Australia and can you believe Sephora sells these blushes for $29? I can buy 3 for the price of 2 here and if I buy 6 it’s for the price of 4 ;).

What’s your favourite NARS blush?

    Lovely review – I’ve heard so much about the Nars Orgasm blush, and it’s been on my wishlist for so long now! xD (But even $30 is splurging for me, heheh.) Definitely going to bite the bullet and buy it now!

    I have been fortunate enough to visit your lovely country several times, as my bestie married an Aussie and now lives there! But I was totally shocked at how expensive American cosmetics are in Australia! My friend comes home once a year to visit her family, and stocks up on makeup when she’s here. NARS blushes are all wonderful!

      I know how your friend feels, my husband had the same reaction (he’s from the US as well). He couldn’t justify a bottle of water that sells for $4 in Australia. Our cosmetic is like more than double the US prices. I’ll be stocking up big time this November haha

    It looks so pretty! I’ve always been wary about orgasm because of all the shimmers but it looks gorgeous.

    You’re gonna enjoy the USA on Black Friday. I was in New York last year and it was really fun, shopping at 2am in the morning. I have yet to try and own a NARS blush. I plan on buying one when I finish one of my blushes!… which might be a while away.

    Your birthday is in 24 days?! We totally need to celebrate!

    Great review, lovely, and Orgasm is such a gorgeous shade. Even better that you treated yourself to it with a gift card, guilt free shopping! You are going to go crazy when you’re in the US…actually, I might have to give you a shopping list too, hehe.

    This is a great review, I have been eyeing this one off for a while too. It is becoming a cult beauty item in some glossy magazines. You are going to have an awesome time in the US, I heard cosmetics are fairly cheap compared to OZ. Have a great time!

      The makeup and skincare is like more than half the price here!! Last time I went, I wasn’t really into makeup yet so I mostly stocked up on skincare at really good prices.

    Congrats on wining the gift card and what a great choice. I’ve heard so many people rave about this blush, but unfortunately I have only swatched this at the Mecca store (haven’t tried it on my cheeks). I don’t own any Nars blushes because it’s quite exy here!

      Thanks hun!! I was so excited when I won, I spent the night thinking of what I should get. I love this blush, so much that I’m going to get a few more to try later in the year.

      I’m quite loving it too, it’s a shame they are quite expensive in Australia. I can’t wait to try a few more of their products.

    This definitely one of NARS’ most popular blushes! I am lusting over them, although I don’t wear blush very often to warrant a purchase…. but then again, I’m probably not wearing it because I haven’t found one I like! The shade is absolutely gorgeous and flattering :)

      I love blushes, I wear it almost everyday. I guess I’m so use to having it on, it looks weird if I don’t.

    I love Nars Orgasm and Deep Throat (interesting names too haha). I bought them overseas, but with how amazing they are, I’ll happily pay the crazy prices here too!
