If you’re into beauty you have probably heard about or read about a certain blush by NARS. I feel like everybody raves about NARS Orgasm blush! If you don’t know, Orgasm is a peachy pink colour with gold shimmer and in the pan it looks stunning. When swatched, I get very little colour pay off, it mostly sticks to my finger which is really disappointing. To get a decent swatch I have to dig my fingernail into the blush! I found that most blush brushes also won’t show much colour payoff. The only brushes that worked well with this blush were goat hair brushes.
Usually I would just move on to a new product but In Australia NARS is so expensive. Don’t worry, I’m here to help! I have found 2 dupes! The first dupe is a Face Of Australia powder blush in O Peachy! This blush is what I imagined Orgasm to be like! The only deference is that it is a tiny bit more pink. The second dupe I have is also Face Of Australia and it is the Mineral Therapy Illuminator in Angel Flame, I would compare this to the Orgasm Illuminator but I don’t own it! I think this is a perfect match in liquid form!
NARS Orgasm is $45 AUD for 4.5g from Mecca Cosmetica, Face Of Australia powder blushes are $9.45 AUD for 5.g and Illuminators are $14.95 AUD for 50mL! I have owned this blush for about half a year and it kind of gets pushed to the back of my collection to be honest… I don’t think that it’s worth the hype at all which sucks because I really want to like it more! Although i love NARS I would definitely choose the Face Of Australia products, more product, waaaaay cheaper and better colour payoff!
