A Pretty Close Dupe for NARS Orgasm blush

Who doesnt know about the famous NARS blush in Orgasm? Its name makes a lot of people uneasy lol.
Its either you will love this blush or you won't. It is a pigmented peachy pink blush with lots of gold shimmer. You have to be careful when applying this blush. Make sure you don't dip your brush too much. When applied on the cheeks, the shimmer turns to a pretty gold sheen. Its just so pretty. Obviously, this is not your everyday blush.
It retails for $25.00 with tax, its almost $30.00. If you are a makeup lover then you would call this an investment ^_^
I be purchased at any Sephora stores or http://www.sephora.com/

The possible DUPE. Mark's Good Glowing blush in After Glow.

It is a peachy pink blush with gold shimmers too. It looks more peachy pink in the pan, but when swatched, Its looks more of a bright baby pink. Its pigmented as well so a little goes a long way. It also gives a nice gold sheen when applied on the cheeks. On the other hand, its a bit powdery but nothing too crazy. Just tap off the excess on your brush :)
This retails for $6.00 by itself. You will have to buy a separate case for $4.00
can be purchased at my E-botique http://rceleste.mymarkstore.com/
with flash. You can really see the gold shimmers or reflects.

Swatches!!! I did my very best to show you how they would look on the skin. I had to take a bunch of photos and I picked the best one. They are swatched heavily with concealer underneath.

Both in their packaging.

If you dont like shimmers then these blushes are not for you. On the other hand, these are very awesome blushes. After glow is not an exact dupe for Orgasm but its a very close one. After Glow is more brighter pink than Orgasm. Also, Orgasm has more gold shimmers in it.
I like both of them. You cant go wrong with either one. If you care about the price then go for Mark's After Glow ^_^
remember Mark's After Glow can be purchased at my E-botique http://rceleste.mymarkstore.com/

  7. ooohh.. that looks like a good dupe. I love nars orgasm. I use a fan brush just so it doesnt get too crazy for daytime hehe. Super Orgasm looks good too but the gold glitters look a little too big imo :)

  10. orgasm is a famous nars blush. i agree with you on that matter.

    kapag bibili ako ng blush sa nars, talagang ipipilit ng makeup artist sa akin yan!!!
    hindi talaga ako bumibigay! haha! try ko muna yung mga gusto ko bago orgasm... kasi laging may stock naman ang orgasm dito sa manila...

    mwah!

  16. I wanted to get Orgasm when Sephora first opened here last year, but I already ordered TheBalm Hot Mama online and when I saw Orgasm in person they looked too similar so it wasn't worth buying.

  17. Just stopping by. You have a nice site. Be sure to visit mine. 8-)

  18. i love the name on that blush mark!!! hehe it kinda reminds me of someone.. ur products are great btw

    ReplyDelete
  19. They look similar for sure, I'd def go for Mark. Though if Nars Orgasm actually gives you an orgasm while putting your blush on, I say that Nars is a better deal. LOL.

    Your bf is renovating his place? Awww that's so handy, I wish my bf can do handy work like that... Yeah furnature is so expensive... I just don't care anymore and spend now, cuz it's all sunk cost that I have to spend anyways... And I don't really want a soil couch from 2nd hand store either hahaahha

    ReplyDelete
  21. haha i would actually use blush if i didn't already naturally blush so easily. lmao

  22. This is probably the blush that comes closest to NARS orgasm. I've seen a lot of wanna be dupes but this one appears to be a really close if not exact dupe of the infamous blush. Sadly though, I don't think we have Mark here in the Philippines.

    ReplyDelete
  23. this is such a great dupe! never found anything so similar! too bad mark. is not available here in the philippines. :(

  25. wow. after glow sure does look a lot like orgasm. :) for a WAY better price too. plus, it has that pretty sparkle that orgasm has. and yes, honestly speaking, i do like the name after glow better. haha... sometimes, i feel like turning red when my co-workers ask what blush i'm wearing while wearing the orgasm one. lol.

    i call it "the really pretty blush with a really sick name." lol.

    the other dupe i've been seeing is the elf one too. hopefully there'd be dupes of deep throat too. (yeah, another uneasy sounding name.) that color is pretty as well. :)

  26. Cool comparison of products and shades.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I have this mark. blush but I'm not sure it fits my skin tone. It,s a little too bright for me, but it's sad because it's a gorgeous color!
