    Every. Single. Day.
    no matter what I’m wearing.

    Ok, that’s not really true. Almost true.

    i use the NARS orgasm/laguna duo. and i personally find that they really are made for each other. when the two colors are blended in together, it’s amazing! since the product itself has specks of gold sparkles in it, i either match it with gold-toned eyeshadow/ soft brown liner or,// go more towards matte eyes and make the blush pop out. :)

  3. I wouldn’t wear it actually! Haha, I bought this one time and returned it because the quality wasn’t what I expected for the price. I bought Estee Lauder’s Radiant Peach instead and it was exactly what I wanted Orgasm to be.

    If I were to wear it, I would wear it like I do all my blushes, on my cheekbones behind the apples of my cheeks.

    I use this blush daily around my temples and blended back into my hairline with a tapered brush or my fingers depending on how clean they are. It is the base of my look and I use a highlighter to blend from the apples back to meet the blush. I always wear liner and gloss to fit my mood and typically a neutral well defined eye, as i wear glasses now. Blush and blending are a necessity for my every day look.

    This is the blush I grab for pretty much every look. It’s neutral enough on me that it seems to work no matter what kind of make up I do. I only switch out for something else if I have too much shimmer/metallic on my eyes.

    I wear this every day in summer!! :D Add some turquoise eyes, coral lips and I’m ready to go!

    I bought this a few moths ago and i love wearing it on the apples of my cheeks and using maybellines peach satin mousse blush to blend it up into my temples it gives a beautiful radiant glow

    I love this blush and wear it right on my apples softly blended on the cheekbones, on top of Nars Sheer Glow Foundation mixed with the Brightening serum, Niagara soft coral lipstick, a dollop of clear gloss, and finished with black curled lashes with my Sana Powerstyle Super Curl mascara! Bright and summery and glowy, yay!

    I actually wouldn’t wear this, this is one of those blushes that just don’t show up on me no matter how much I build it or which brush I use.

  11. Hend

    with well-contoured neutral eyes and Rimmel’s Airy Fairy

  12. Tiffany

    i feel like this blush only looks good if i wear no eyeshadow…..otherwise it looks like too much for me :( i’m not crazy about it

    I wear it with almost everyday with nearly anything. But lately I really love to pair it with more gold or olive tones. I think it balances out nicely.

  14. Jaa

    Wearing it now. Under the cheekbones with Laguna all over my face.

  15. Noir

    I believe everyone should have the NARS’s Orgasm blush, it’s such a good color and it matches every skin color. A useful tip my friend tough me is if you have any other blush that you don’t like, mix it with the Orgasm blush to blend well with your skin color.

  16. I wear it all the time. It is pretty versatile like that.

  17. kirsten

    I really didn’t enjoy this blush too much until I discovered ‘Enchanted’ (cream blush released last year). Pairing the two is such a stunning result, highly recommend ++

  18. jagoda

    i think the real question is how wouldn’t you wear it!?!

  19. Perri

    This blush is a must-have. It is so versatile. Works great with Laguna from Nars.

  20. Mel

    I don’t own this blush but from what I’ve heard is it’s pretty versatile. I’d add it to my everyday look which is UD smog on the lid with KVD Lucifer and UD Darkhorse blended together in the crease. MAC Sunpower Mineralize Skinfinish, and MAC Nymphette Lipglass.

  21. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of artemis artemis

    nice name :D well…i’d wear it with navy smokey eyes, black cat eyeliner, black mascara, a bit of bronzer under the apple of my cheeks and a pale pinky nude lipstick w/ gloss

  22. Oh gosh.. where to start with the oh so famous Orgasm blush! haha! Too many wayyys to use this product. I actually wore it for my wedding! Paired it with a brown smokey eye and a rosy neutral lipcolor =) but I think this blush could be used with almost anything, and its easy to build for color so you can either go natural or pinky with a bit of a golden glow!

  23. carl

    I’d opt for Korean Look. Wash of MAC Jest on the lids, Orgasm blush, MAC Lovelorn for lips

    This blush is gorgeous, but unfortunately, it breaks me out. I only wear it on very special occasions and I try to be very careful with it. I used to wear it every day, blaming my break outs on hormones, then I realized it was my favorite blush :( Strange, very few products disagree with my skin.

      You should try NYX’s “Pinched” powder blush. It’s less shimmer and slightly pinker (like the newer Orgasm formulations), but it might fill in the gap in your makeup routine. I’m sorry to hear that something you love doesn’t work for you anymore. :(

  25. I’m not exactly creative. I use this almost everyday and I love it most paired with MAC Kinda Sexy and MUFE Glossy Full Couleur no. 3 on my lips, and Stila Smudge Pot in Black and MUFE Aqua Eyes 1L on my lids :) My most loved natural look.

    I do not use this; I use SCORE by UD, or Sephora #5 ($5.00). Both are more sheer, subtle and look so much nicer

  27. Rosie

    I wear this blush often I would say at least twice a week. But this week I’ve been wearing it everyday. I think this blush is so universal it can pretty much with any look except maybe not orange/peach e/s that might be tooo much!!!!

  28. Chelsea

    I’ve never understood the hype of this blush! Its way to subtle for me, it takes layers upon layers to show up on my moderately fair skin!
    It looks much better in the pan rather than on the skin. I regret purchasing it to be honest!
    However, nars does have some pretty impressive blushes out there.

  29. Meg

    I use this everyday… haha
    no matter what look I do.

  30. Michelle

    I pair it with the Benefit 10 box and a soft neutral eye. A simple glam look for everyday. :)

  31. Siri

    I wear this on my apples. I also just take a hint of it on the brush and swipe it across my forehead and chin because my foundation makes me look a bit dead and I want that rosy glowy look :)
