I really wanted to love this blush--I do like it, but it didn't live up to the hype for me. The shimmery-ness of this product seems to be a common point of contention, but I didn't find it to be as shimmery as I'd hoped. It's buildable, which is nice, but I think I'd prefer a little more pigment--it just seems to show up very light on me, and the peachy-tone doesn't "pop" as I'd hoped. A good sized pan and amount of product for the cost, nicely packaged.

If I had to choose the only one blush to use for the rest of my life this would be it. It can be worn sheer or build up to full opacity. I personally find this blush more luminous than frosty. It dosen't highlight my pores although I don't have large pores to begin with. That being said in my opinion compared to Benefit coralista, coralista is more frosty and it enlarged my pores horribly. I passed this one to a friend because I absolutely disliked how my skin looked. I felt like I put highlight not a blush. I would
definitely recommend Orgasm blush over Corallista. Nars orgasm just gives so much life to my face. I can wear just some mascara, clear brow gel, lipstick and this blush and feel like million bucks.

I've been using this blush for many years. I love it because the color is so perfect, so pretty, so natural. It goes on beautifully, very easy to control the amount applied, and it blends well. The color stays on all day. The only negative is the cost, which is ridiculously high, but it does last a very long time. I've tried finding a less expensive dupe, but nothing has ever really come close.

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
-- Buildable; easy to create the look you want
-- Good quality, smooth, and applies evenly
-- 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.
