NARS Orgasm Blush

NARS Orgasm.  Where, oh where to begin.  This is the first NARS blush I have ever owned, and only the second NARS cosmetic product I have!  (I've actually just this second reminded myself of a skincare set I got before Christmas that remains untouched and never used - how has that happened?!)

Shocking memory aside, I have been wearing Orgasm almost non-stop since I got it!  It is a gorgeous  warm peachy-pink with a golden shimmer running through it.  I was a bit concerned for the gold shimmer at first, because I'm not really a lover of sparkle, but I found it to be really flattering!  I don't go too heavy handed with my blushes, so I could slowly build up the colour to make sure that I didn't go overboard with the shimmer.

The gold shimmer is definitely there, but it's not a ridiculous amount of glitter - it's just nice!  Orgasm is really pigmented, so I haven't ever swirled my brush in the powder - I go for a light pat and then blend onto my cheeks, and build up as needed.

It's really finely milled, super smooth and blends effortlessly into my skin to give a really natural flush.  The added shimmer gives a boost of radiance and I really, really love it.  I think it will be perfect as my Summer blush, and I think it might even come with me to Spain because the gold shimmer could really enhance that Summer glow!  I think I may have found a new favourite blush brand...

What's your go-to Summer blush?  Have you tried NARS Orgasm?
