1.I bough this after reading Cynthia’s post – on how this is a very close dupe for NARS Orgasm. I have been reading so much online about this iconic NARS blush that a dupe in such an economical price was hard to resist
2.It is a beautiful shade (pink – peach with a touch of shimmer) and lights up my skin even when worn just by itself. I had got this just days before I contracted jaundice. While I was ill, I had become quite pale & had dark circles as well. Just to feel better, before I would go out to office, I would brush this on – I had little energy then & this would be the only thing on my face other than a moisturizer. People I met had a hard time believing I was ill – they all would just say, “but your skin is glowing!”
3.I generally don’t like blushes with shimmer, this one’s the exception – the shimmer is very fine and doesn’t look OTT on the skin. The swatch below is a very dense one - I have put a number of layers to ensure that it would be visible on camera. If you click on it, you will see the enlarged version - in which you can see that the shimmer is superfine.
4.This has good adherence and lasting power – when applied on top on my cream foundation it lasts 3-4 hours & even more if I use this on top of loose powder. Also it is very fine & easy to blend and apply.
5.Applied lightly it just imparts a subtle glow, layered a bit more it gives a very pretty pink flush.
1.The tiny round tub is a pain to open. It is also very fragile; the lock mechanism of my tub broke after 2 weeks. Now I have to keep this separately, plus I can’t travel with this as the lid keeps opening on its own spilling the brush. Thankfully the blush is baked so it stays instead of spilling everywhere
2.The brush with this is ok, it’s not as bad as the colorbar one but it’s not great either.
Will I re-purchase: Yes! Yes! I love this blush & I am so thankful to Cynthia for this. I love this. I want to try out other blushes from Bourjois as well.
