I think my experience of this blush is the same as others. The colour is gorgeous but the payoff, not so much. Like Benefit's Coralista, Nars' Orgasm blush is just a bit too glittery to wear every day and it is really sheer, so the more you add to get colour, the more glitter you add to your cheeks. Still, it's a high quality product and I can see why its so popular.

A bit overhyped. The glitter was fairly noticable, but the lovely peachy coral didn't show through. I wish the base color was more noticeable and the wear time better.

When I first applied this blush I understood my everyone wanted/loved it. On my olive skin it made my look like a tropical goddess. Unfortunately, the higher shimmer content keeps me from wearing it very often during the day. But it is a beautiful color.

Some people love it, some people don't. I think it has a beautiful sheen to the cheeks, but some people think it is to shimmery . It can be light on darker skin tones, and some people with fair/light skin and/or people with red undertones, think this blush is too red. I have a light skin myself, but i have found a way to work with this blush, it is very buildable, so when i just put it on the cheeks lightly, it will have just the perfect sheen with a little bit of coral/pink color to it. So now i just really like it, it is a healthy looking color on the skin, and i just really love the glow!

BOTTOM LINE: Try before you buy! It's a cult classic for a reason, but is not right for everyone. PROS: -- Provides a luminous flush of pink with a hint of peachy-golden sheen -- Pigmented -- Buildable; easy to create the look you want -- Good quality, smooth, and applies evenly CONS: -- If you want a matte blush, this is NOT it. There is definite sparkle/sheen. -- The sheen/sparkle can emphasize pores and other skin imperfections.
