NARS Orgasm Blush | Is It Worth the Hype #2

If you ask almost any beauty editor what their favorite blush is, chances are they're gonna say NARS Orgasm. It is often described as one of the most universally flattering blushes because it is neither too pink or too peachy. But is this blush worth all the hype? I've held off trying this blush for quite some time now because it always looked way too shimmery in the pan, but when I got a sample size in a Sephora point reward set I was excited to see what all the fuss was really about.

Despite all my skepticism, I have to say that I am pleasantly surprised with this blush. The color is absolutely perfect and really does give the cheeks a beautiful glowy and flushed look. As with all other NARS blushes the formula is perfectly blendable and very pigmented. The only real downside is the shimmer; while the shimmer is pretty fine and not at all chunky or glittery, if you have oily skin I would expect you to find this blush a bit much. I personally like blushes with a bit more of a matte finish because if I want shimmer then I'll add a highlight but if you like shimmery blushes then this is definitely the one for you. I'm not completely sold on the idea that this is THE blush to own, I do like this blush a lot and will continue to get a good amount of use out of it, especially during the summer months.

Have you tried NARS Orgasm blush?
