MY THOUGHTS ON EACH COLOR:
> Orgasm (peachy pink w/ shimmer) - the infamous NARS blush! My MUA friend Jessie used this on my wedding day and prenuptial shoot ( <-click links to view pic) that's why I'm in love with this blush. But I read this color doesn't show up on all skintones, better test this first before purchasing. This is my first NARS blush btw.
> Super Orgasm (peachy pink w/ gold glitter) - they say this is Orgasm on steroids =) The gold glitters doesn't bother me coz its not noticeable at all (it falls off), but it really looks chunky on the pan. The color is kinda pinkish compared to Orgasm, and its more pigmented than O. This is loosely pressed compared to the other 3 blushes coz of the chunky glitters.
> Crazed (raspberry w/ shimmer) - you'll look crazy if you over-apply this blush! It looks scary on the pan, but when used with a light hand its a very pretty pink! If you're too lazy to apply makeup, just apply this blush to brighten your face + lipgloss.
> Taos (desert rose w/ shimmer) - this doesn't look desert rose to me, its a reddish-coral IMO. Correct me if I'm wrong.. =) I think this shade flatters all skintones. Like Crazed, you only need to tap the brush once on the pan since this is very pigmented.
I tried several brushes in applying NARS blushes.. Bare Naturals stippling, Ellana baby buki & Everyday Minerals angled blush brush, but the one that works best for me is Ecotools' blush brush coz of its shape. I only need to tap the flat surface of the brush on the pan and swipe directly on my cheeks. The size is perfect for my cheek area, not too big nor small. I also read from Girltalk, Etude's stippling brush works best with NARS blushes too.
I'm starting to get addicted! Waah.. but I think its really worth it coz their blushes are really pigmented, I think each pan will last me 1 - 2 years!
