I received my first ever Nars blush in January in a gift exchange and was delighted when I saw it was the shade called "orgasm". I had seen this shade at Sephora many times but always thought it was too pink and bright for me. After seeing it on a friend with my skin tone I wanted to try it out.
So Ive been applying it ever since and absolutely LOVE it! Its a pinky-peach color with subtle accents of golden shimmer that provides a glow to flatter any skin tone. I thought it would have too much shimmer but was surprised to see that it gives my skin a healthy glow without making me look like a disco ball!

Recently Ive been pairing it with Mac's Limited Edition "Other Wordly" sheertone shimmer blush. I think this is my winning combination!

What I like:
- Gives a healthy glow
- Universally flattering shade so I know it will work for my clients too
- Color isn't too strong or pigmented which I like because you can layer it
- Works well when paired with other blushes/bronzers
- Looks like it will last quite a while
- Price ($26 + tax at Sephora)
- Matte packaging
This is my compact just after I wiped it down... still dirty!
Overall this blush has worked wonders for me. I have never gotten this many compliments on my skin or been told I have a glow this many times before. If you haven't tried this blush and have about $30 to spend I would highly recommend Nars Orgasm blush as an addition to your collection.
