Product Review: Nars Blush - Orgasm

Nars Orgasm

This is the blush used on my clients:



This is a cult product and has become a staple blush for all makeup artist, the peachy pink with shimmer really make this blush a very versatile product. As a makeup artist this is the blush that I usually reach for natural looking flush.

  • The peachy pink hue looks very natural and flattering, especially for fair skin to medium.
  • Work as a great highlight for tan to deep toned skin
  • The shimmer amount is just right, glowing while looking effortless
  • Sheer coverage, build-able to medium. Personally I prefer a duo fiber brush to apply this blush for intense color deposit.
  •  Lasts 7 to 8 hour
  • Looks great on photograph

  • Not really the first choice for oily skin because the shimmer can intensify the shine on the face 
  • Tend to emphasize large pores
  • The price leaning toward the high end product, but to splurge on this blush is worth it!


  1. Nice pros and cons.. very honest
    Saw this blush every where in the internet.. but I just read the review now..

    Hope next time you can do a swatch on your hand too :)

    Btw, do you have any recommendation for a drug-store substitute for this blush since the price is quite high..

    Thank you :)

    1. thank you so much for the feedback thebeautifulfrog, I will update it with swatches later, I recently found several dupes for Nars Orgasm Blush, but one that stand out is Sleek Rose Gold Blush, it was 90% identical and more budget friendly than Nars
