I affiliate linked the HECK out of this post!
Updated: I just bought a great blush that has a very similar color without all the glitter. It’s the CORALista from Benefit. It’s not much less, but you get almost twice as much blush. Plus, when I bought it at Ulta, I got 20% off.
NARS blush in Orgasm ($29 every single place I checked…see below)
Why I Covet It:
Every blog lists NARS Orgasm blush as the perfect shade for everyone of every complexion and the perfect blush in general. Who wouldn’t want that?
According to 15MinuteBeauty.com, “Obviously this color is a cult favorite for a reason. Orgasm is an amazing blush color on almost everyone, and I’m certainly no exception.”
SparkleandMIne says, “This compact is basically my favorite thing ever. Both the blush and the bronzer are universally flattering and super handy when you just need to throw something in your bag or apply makeup on the go.”
QueenOfAllYouSee reports: “It’s a soft beautiful flush of pink that looks good on just about everybody. It has tiny shimmering dusts that makes your cheeks look like it has a natural luminous blush. As if your crush just asked you out on a date and your cheeks blushed pink (I had another image in my head to describe this blush but lets just go with this wholesome story). It lasts for almost an entire day on me, until I remove my make up.”
Lastly, according to Allure, “Without hesitation, this shade—a multiple-year Best of Beauty winner—looks good on just about everybody, creating a soft, convincing flush on fair skin and lending warmth and sparkle to darker complexions. You need only a light dusting, and the color stays true and strong till you take it off. If the shimmer seems too much for day, save this for nights out.

Saks Fifth Avenue ($29)
Nars, or course ($29)
Why I Haven’t Purchased It Yet:
Price. $29 for a blush? It sounds totally amazing, like it could totally change my life. Life changing blush for $29? Sounds like a great deal! I’m SO conflicted! I hate to spend that much on a single blush when I’m so happy with my ELF All Over Color Stick for $1. Why, NARS, why?
Do you wear NARS blush in Orgasm? Is it worth it? Is it as amazing as everyone says?
