Orgasm...but better

I previously wrote a post about this product a while ago at Zuneta but I love the product so much, I thought it was worth featuring on the blog too. So here you go guys, featuring the HOT MAMA (refer to the picture in case you miss it :p) Blush by the Balm.


The packaging says its meant to be used as a shadow and a blush. But I rather prefer it as a blusher. Although it does not make a bad eye shadow too you know. Just sweep it on with a fluffy blush and you'll have a gorgeous flush of color on the lids without looking over the top.

Would be great with blue eyes due to its bronze undertones!

Now, for the color. To me it looks exactly like Nars Orgasm (and a bit of Benefits Coralista?) in the pan.



Why I say its better than Nars Orgasm is because it has,

- Better pigmentation, one swipe and you'll be like woah!
- Better formula/texture - gorgeous satin finish, glides on like silk.
- More quantity - 7.08 grams compared to Nars's 4.8 grams.

I've heard Nars Orgasm does not show up at all on certain skin tones, but this is so strong in pigmentation that it definitely will, even on deeper skin tones. No matter how light the color is, it should show up strongly on all skin tones is something I firmly believe in. Different skin tones should not be used as an excuse by brands!

Besides that, the packaging is obviously much more fun in this case. I really like the Benefit inspired packaging minus the bulkiness.

This specific color also has strong gold undertones, which makes it appear a golden peachy-pink in the day light giving you a sun kissed effect. It adds a hint of coral pop to the cheeks. I obsessively used this on a holiday to fake a healthy glow.

Overall, its not exactly like Nars Orgasm but is a competitor for sure. If you have loved your Nars Blushes, you've got to try this!

Buy it here.

I was just going to say its not going to show up on my skin tone, (cos nars orgasm doesnt- only shows glitter not colour) but then read that its more pigmented, so might be worth a shot...
Iv been wanting to try benefits coralista for a while now..

SilhouetteScreams said...

Ohhhh this is gorgeous <3 I like that you mentioned the bulky Benefit packaging too, it's why I won't buy one of their boxed powders!

gio said...

Absolutely gorgeous!! Cute packaging too!

GREEDS said...

This is my FAVORITE summer blush. I've been using it for about 2 years now and it is absolutely amazing. Beautiful color, VERY pigmented... I also like to use it only as a blush, I've never used it as a shadow because I don't wear shadow often, if at all.

Love this post!
