nars blusher

nars orgasm swatched on the left and sleek rose gold swatched on the right
something that only can be described as magical happened the other day. i won the amazing and lovely charlie of the brilliant lady of the lane‘s competition to win a nars blusher. i have never owned a nars blushed before (shock horror) even though some of their blushes are the most culted in the beauty industry and blogging world. this is mainly due to price and that blushes are not always something i buy or spend more money on. for example a nars blush is £20.50 whereas a mac power blush in pan form is £14 so when i was luckily enough to win i snapped up the chance to get my hands on nars orgasm blush

when the product arrived my mum and i literally oooohed and arrrred as i got the blush out of the packaging! there is something rather special about nars packaging and even though you might not think it from seeing it as its just all black, you know its nars so you know its good!

im glad to sad this blush did not disappoint. some people don’t get on with this blush as its quite pinky and shimmery but i love sleek’s rose gold so thought orgasm and i would be the best of friends. wow never thought i would say that in a sentence! in comparison to sleek’s rose gold orgasm has a lighter pigmentation and less gold shimmer. this means its easier to wear everyday without feeling too much like  a disco ball. even though the colour swatch is lighter then sleek’s rose gold the colour payoff is great and i still get a bit of a thrill putting this on in the morning. simple things aye!

i feel like i might have unleashed a nars addiction and as im heading off to new york oh so soon any recommendations on what else to get would be awesome =)

  • @Celia – it is. well worth the money xx

    @Yu – you have a good choice in blushers! can’t believe i went without this for so long!xx

    @AngieBeautyBelle – haha that is good!xx

  • Super gorgeous, but I think I have a dupe in my collection – mark. Good Glowing Custome Pick Blush in After Glo x

  • @G A B Y – there are quite a few good dupes around but when you have a chance to get the real deal its hard to resist :P xx

  • I’m so glad you love it! :D

  • So so pretty! I love Nars blushes. For a bit of a bargain buy them via ASOS. I have an NUS card so get discount that way, but ASOS are always dishing out discount codes via their facebook. Sometimes up to 20% off which makes them about £16, a little more managable. I think Sleek do a lot of Nars dupes and the pigmentation is just as good.

  • @Charlie – i do! thank you :D xx

    @Lauren Alice – thats a really great tip thank you =) my nus graduate card as just arrived so i can see me making some sneaky purchases!xx
