Blush by NARS Cosmetics

CLAIM TO FAME: Iconic, cult classic blush

FAST FACTS: This product needs little to no introduction as it made Nars the authority in blush colors; soft and sheer; gives a healthy glow; the most recognized shade for cheeks; a perennial favorite of makeup artists and editors, multi-awarded and best seller—it’s the holy grail of blush!

PERFECT FOR: A wide range of skin tones. A quick pick-me-up for dull skin

WHAT YOU GET: (1) Nars Blush

You can control the intensity of the blush by applying sparingly or by layering. Either way, the result is a flattering flush. Brush from cheeks to temples, blending near the hairline.

Founded by makeup magnate and French artist, Francois Nars, this brand is well-loved by professional makeup artists, designers and beauty junkies alike. Francois is an innovator and creates products instinctively instead of following trends. The result: bold and sophisticated makeup and skincare that are runway to real-way ready. Infamous for provocative shade names like the best-selling blush, Orgasm, this cult brand is a staple for the fashionable set or for anyone looking to add a pop of color in her look.

Love the glow!

Orgasm is my favorite Nars blush shade. It suits my NC35 skintone and gives a natural flush on the cheeks. I also love the subtle glow it gives. It stays put on my cheeks from morning until around lunch time. I re-apply only once around midday. On days my skin is in good condition, I don't even need to touch up at all. I will continue to repurchase this!

I used to shy away from this blush because of all the shimmer in it, but oh boy! One swipe and it was love! This shade is universally-flattering, and looks very natural. There was a time that I forgot to tap off the excess product, but it didn't look too piled on. I just wish the packaging isn't a dirt magnet, and that it will eventually come with a brush!

cult fave for a reason

usually I prefer cream blushes but the color in Orgasm really looks so natural. it's perfect for oily skin too since its powder form. will never stop recommending this product!

One of my favorite cult beauty products!

I can't get enough of Nars blushes! They are highly-pigmented, so a lot goes a long way, and will stay on all throughout the day. Their most popular color is "Orgasm," and rightfully so. It looks great on most skin tones, and more importantly, gives off a natural glow. Whenever I wear it, I look like I am glowing from the inside-out. I've never looked back since!

Who hasn't heard of Nars blushes?

The Nars Orgasm was such a trend I immediately had to purchase my own and I'm so glad I did!! Super worth the price and I did save up for this for a long time! A little goes a long way and the blush lasted until I washed my face at the end of the day!! Gave me super flushed, blooming cheeks that was buildable for a more formal make up look!! So worth buying!

Super pigmented! Intense!

Out of all the blushes I have tried, this one has the most pigmentation. Ever! Just a few dip of my brush and you can see immediately the color on your cheeks. It lasts all day even until night, given that I have a very oily face. Worth the money since you only need a few of the product.

Radiant Afterglow

I've been using this for few years now. It's definitely the best blush I've ever used. It's very pigmented and it makes my cheeks blush a purrfect pink-peach flush with a fair amount of golden shimmer for highlights. It flatters with any skin tones. It's kinda expensive but definitely worth it. I always recommend this to my friends.

OOOhh my....

I thought this blush was just overrated by all the beauty gurus. But i was so wrong! When i first tried it on my cheeks, it looked so natural. The perfect flush that you want to have on the apples of your cheeks without being too red. That also leaves a subtle glow whih makes you look healthy! I love how creamy and pigmented it is. At the same time it is super easy to blend.

Loooovvveeee it!

My first impressions were ‘Wow this is super glittery’. That’s not usually a problem for me, but it’s also not a texture I would personally choose to use on a bride. On closer inspection though, and through a few uses, I can tell you that it’s not as glittery on the skin as it first appears in the pan.

Cult fave

This blush is absolutely my holy grail! I can understand why almost everyone has this blush and the Nars Orgasm is one of the top selling blushes in the world! It looks very natural and I am sure it is universal that it will suit all kinds of skin tones. I wish BeautyMNL will restock their Nars blushes soon!

Gives a natural flush of pink

Orgasm is the best shade of pink on my skin (but I bet it works also for other skin tones). I've been trying out other blushes but I keep on going back to this one. It gives a natural glow to your cheeks, as long as you don't overdo it. The texture feels amazing and it's easy to blend with your contour powder (I'm loyal to NARS Laguna) and highlighter. Even if it's on the expensive side, you get a really good quality blush that lasts for 6-8 months - and for me, that's a great deal :)

Goddess cheeks when sunlight hits!!

My love story with Nars just started recently. I got their illuminator in Laguna after much debate as to whether or not it would be worth the splurge, and I'm so glad I convinced myself to get one because it really did give me that lit from within glow! After that, I fell hopelessly in love. I told my Mom about how I fell for Nars and she got me my first haul of the brand and I almost cried when I saw everything. This blush is included in it and my Mom got me this in Super Orgasm, she knows I love blushes with deeper hues. And this really gave me those fushed cheekbones I've always wanted! I love the sparkle too! How it makes me look radiant when the sunlight hits my cheeks! This is such an HG blush and I recommend this to everyone! (P.S. I'll be doing a review of the items included in the haul here at BeautyMNL and I hope it convinces everyone that this brand is worth the splurge!)

You get what you pay for!

This is one of the first high-end beauty products I really invested in, and I have no regrets! In case you were wondering why the product names are so sexual, it's because one really gets a glow from it, and Nars perfectly translates that into make-up form haha! I wouldn't use this for everyday though, for the sole reason that it is pricey. But its formula is perfect -- not chalky, nicely pigmented, and has staying power. Buy it!

Holy Grail!

Nars blushes are always included in top beauty buys and in beauty items that you need to have because of a great reason. I own almost all the shades that Nars carries and I love them all. I like that they are very pigmented and that they blend beautifully on the skin.

Worth the hype!

This is the one blush every beauty junkie needs in their arsenal. Orgasm suits practically every skin tone & goes with nearly all makeup looks. Feels so luxurious on, the color lasts all day and gives you that covetable lit-from-within glow. Yes, it is expensive but it lasts for years so it is worth every peso. What's not to love?!

Dream come true :)

I've been wanting to buy Nars blush in Orgasm since I was a student but it was a bit pricey for me at the time, so you can just imagine how thrilled I was when I got this as a git for my birthday last year :) and boy, it did not disappoint! I just love the warm color it gave my cheeks, it is so prefect for my skin tone :) the hype is real! Definitely repurchasing when this one runs out.

worth every penny

Decided to try Nars blush in orgasm because of the very good reviews. It's always sold out so I'm very lucky that i was able to purchase here online. It's quite expensive but certainly is worth it. Texture is SIlky, very pigmented and hands down the best blush I've ever owned. I really love the naturally blushed look!

See the "cult favorite" part right there? This blush is like totally my most favorite blush ever. The orgasm blush from Nars! All my friends are raving about it and Im glad I bought it! It's my holy grail. Can't imagine myself doing make up if they stop manufacturing these babies (Which I know they won't). Try it to understand what's the rave all about!

HG Blush!!

I've already collected several shades from the NARS cult favorite powder blushes. My favorite is orgasm of course! I love that it stays put the whole day despite my being super oily and blends well with my morena skin. You can also adjust the application if you want the subtle blush look or if you want your blush game to be strong. It will still look natural! I hope they will be restocked soon and often though..

All natural glow

I love how this blush helps you achieve that natural glow without the big obvious reveal of you wearing a blush. It gives you a good healthy flush of color. Since my skin is fair, I have one in orgasm and it is the perfect blush. There is a perfect reason why nars in orgasm is considered the holy grail of blushes
