I always wondered what all the fuss was about the iconic Nars Orgasm Blusher, I finally bit the bullet a couple of years ago and purchased this famous blusher, but I also wanted to find a good dupe for you guys that lasted just as long to review and compare, let me know your thoughts on these blushers.
PACKAGING - The Nars blush comes in a black rubber mirrored compact, I'm not so keen on Nars packaging as everything seems to stick to the rubber and make it look dirty, but the mirror is handy and a nice size for your handbag.
The NYX bronzer & blush duo is packed in a white plastic compact with a beautiful black pattern on the front, inside it has a mirror the size of the compact which again is handy to have on the go for touch-ups.
APPLICATION - On application the NYX blush is creamier in texture, both are really pigmented and a little defiantly goes a long way for both. There is much difference on the cheeks the colour is virtually identical.
LONGEVITY - Nars Orgasm wears better throughout the day and by 8.30pm the Nars blush is still on. The NYX wore lovely until the early evening where it started to fade more than the Nars one, so it would probably need a top up for the evening if you wanted to wear this all day & night.
FINAL THOUGHTS - I love both of these equally for different reasons, the Nars is a great weekend blush as it is a little pricey but lasts into the evening which is great for a night out and the colour is stunning on any skin. But if you are on a budget and desperately want this shade for your collection I would defiantly go for the NYX version as not only do you to get a bronzer added too which is great for contouring might I add, but also you get a great dupe for half the price, even if you do have to top up the colour on your cheeks for the evening.
I award the NYX Bronzer & Blusher Duo a 4.7 out of 5
