NARS Taj Mahal Blush

NARS Taj Mahal Blush ($29.00 for 0.16 oz.) is described as a “blazing burnt orange with golden shimmer.” It’s a bold, vibrant orange with a hint of red and a golden shimmer-sheen. Wet ‘n’ Wild Golden Goddess is more subdued, browner. MAC Center of the Universe is also more muted and browner. MAC My Paradise is more coral/red. Jasmine Rajah (which is an eyeshadow) is very similar but has a subtler golden sheen.

NARS Super Orgasm Blush

NARS Super Orgasm Blush ($29.00 for 0.16 oz.) is described as a “peachy pink with gold glitter.” It’s a golden-shimmered, warm pink with gold glitter. It is Orgasm with glitter particles. I think that this appears slightly lighter with a stronger sheen, though. As a result, all the dupes for Orgasm apply to Super Orgasm–minus the glitter. bareMinerals The Natural High is slightly warmer in its base color (less pink). Guerlain Blush G Serie Noire is slightly deeper and pinker. Benefit Sugarbomb is much, much lighter (and sheerer). Rock & Republic Call Me is slightly less pink. Milani Dolce Pink is more frosted/sparkly. Tarte Glisten is similar–slightly darker.  MAC Springsheen is also similar.  This older post is a good comparison reference for coral blushes.
