Review: NARS Blush in Orgasm - A Blush For Everyone?


This seems to be one of the top cheek products everyone seems to rave about claiming it to be the ultimate universal blush and I remember being really excited when I finally took the plunge and purchased it mid last year! The packaging is lovely as with all NARS products, well designed minus the dirt grabbing finish (which i can live with as it feels super soft), the pan is well attached etc etc but I must admit I wasn't as wowed by this product as I had hoped, at first anyway.

The blush itself is a lovely peachy pink with lovely golden tones which perhaps were a bit too glitter like for me in certain lights as I'm pretty fair which tends to make getting the right blush a bit of a nightmare. This being said makes the universal claim that seems to have been made over the blogsphere a little bit of a porkie but nevertheless I have really grown to like it.

I don't really know what I was expecting when I first tried it as the pigmentation didn't seem to show up on my skin until I'd either given a good 2 coats or drowned my brush in it but lesson learnt, less is more. For some reason, the lighting in my room seems to make this bush look near invisible until I get into natural lighting which isn't the greatest thing to say the least. Just me? ...Probably.

All in all I probably won't re purchase or even finish the entire thing but I think if you have darker skin than me, give it a go!

P.s. Hello again everyone! Little update for those who are wondering, still very much in the woods with my mind problems but hoping blogging again will aid my distraction from this. Thank you for all being so patient and for all your lovely comments on my last post. You're all amazing and I cannot thank you enough for your support as It's really what I need right now. xxxxx
