Are You Team Orgasm, Deep Throat or Reckless?

In relation to NARS' cult blushes, that is. Can't decide? We got three readers to tell us what they think and settle the score once and for all.

Welcome to KULALA Beauty Club, where YOU our dear readers help us suss out the best in the beautysphere. This week, we have not one, not two, but THREE readers to test out shades from NARS’ cult-favourite blush range: Yeeling with Reckless, Jeranne with Orgasm and Isabel with Deep Throat. When you’re done with the reviews, head on over here to read about the prettiest blushes currently on our radar.

“Reckless is a shimmery, soft, warm and very light pink. This is a phenomenal shade. On my skin, it gave more sparkle than an outright sheen. I’m not sure if it will be a blush for very fair skin tones, maybe just barely, because it is very light. I think that it will work better on a darker skin tone and will definitely give you a perfect sunkissed glow when you apply it on the right places. Practically speaking, it just seems more like a highlighter than a blush. On that note, there is a generous amount of iridescent sparkle in it, which some may find dazzling while others less so as it is rather noticeable on the skin and the sparkle tends to travel all over the place. For me, the effect of the sheen lasted seven hours before turning patchy.”

“Orgasm has a tinge of golden shimmer, which gives you a youthful and vibrant glow to the face. It does not overpower and I find the peach-pink to be a unique shade for my skin tone. I hardly do full makeup on a regular day, so this blusher helps add a little contrast. Orgasm truly does seem to be the perfect shade, whether with simple eyeliner or full brows, and, as its name suggests, able to give a satisfying result. Well, I guess that’s how its name came about! For me, it is a definite yes and a sure addition to my collection of nude-neutral makeup.”

“Deep Throat is a warm coral pink with minimal shimmer. I consider it a day alternative to Orgasm. I’m relatively fair with a warm undertone and personally do not like anything that’s too shimmery. So, if you are, like me, looking for a hassle-free touch-and-go blush without looking like you’ve just gotten out of the sauna, this is it. The blush is pigmented, very buildable and not too sheer, perfect for that extra oomph on a last minute night out with the girls. Being so compact and travel-friendly just adds more brownie points. This is my first NARS product and I can say that I’m quite sold with this one. In fact, this is putting me well on the road to get a second something from NARS.”
