This is NOT a review post guys, I'm just comparing two blush colors for anybody who wants to get either the original shade or the dupe can decide upon it.
The dupe is the Rose Gold blush by Sleek Makeup, a peachy pink color with shimmer that you can get for almost 1/3 the price. Let's move on to see how identical the two shades are.
|L-R Sleek Rose Gold, NARS Orgasm|
|Swatches in Flash|
From the pan as well as the swatches you can tell the slight difference there is in the shade, Orgasm is pinker, more sheer and has understated shimmer. Rose Gold is more pigmented with lots of gold shimmer making it lean more towards peach.
Rose Gold shows up as a gold highlight on me, the color of the blush is almost negligible no matter how many swipes I go for, for reference I'm between NC20-25. I bought it because of some raving reviews but have hardly ever used it and that is basically why I got myself Orgasm. And my oh my was I blown away by the color or what. It shows up a glorious peachy pink on me with JUST the right amount of shimmer. When NARS claims it to be a universally flattering color they know what they're talking about!
But the colors are nevertheless pretty close, both are peachy pink with gold shimmer, so if you want a budget blush dupe for the iconic Orgasm "afterglow" ;) you can try the Sleek Rose Gold. Orgasm retails for $29 and Rose Gold for $7 approximately.
