Everyone must have heard of the NARS Orgasm blush for one million times already, but hey, another opinion might help! Besides, I also will talk to you about an underrated blush from NARS: Torrid blush.
NARS packaging is not the best. It looks beautiful and handy with a mirror inside but the rubbery matte cover makes it a magnet to dust and all kind of dirt.
The texture of NARS blushes are quite dry to the touch, but it’s smoother once applied. No fallout and pressed firmly. It’s thin but buildable and easy to blend. NARS blushes last very long on my cheek and stay true to color.

Below are the swatches of NARS Orgasm and NARS Torrid
NARS Orgasm is a reddish, warm medium pink with golden shimmers. The shimmers are overload and it makes this blush doesn’t photograph well. It can also enhance the pores and blemishes.
NARS Torrid is a warm, medium peach with subtle golden shimmers. It looks very natural with the fine shimmers.
Personally, I like both color but the NARS Torrid is absolute favorite of mine! It gives a nice flush of color and can be very versatile. I think it will look gorgeous on light-medium skintone.
Overall, there is nothing I love or hate about NARS blushes, they just work well in general but they don’t WOW me.
