The Look For Less: A Blush and Bronzer Duo

The buzz around Nars Orgasm blush is huge, so much so that Nars has released multiple products based upon the peachy-pink hue. I've had my eye on the blush and bronzer duo ($37), which packages Orgasm with Laguna bronzer. Both are beautiful colors, but until I finish my full-size Orgasm blush, I can't justify buying it.

Then again, one drugstore brand is hoping you'll "cheat" with their lookalike product. To see the look for less,


Eyes Lips Face clearly took a cue from Nars in creating its Contouring Blush and Bronzing Powder ($3). While the shades aren't identical, they're pretty close. And at $34 less than the original, it's a recession-busting option for anyone looking for an affordable "O" glow.

I like the Nars Deep Throat blush, but their names are enough to turn you red when people ask what you're using. Haha

If you can help it don't buy from E.L.F. Not only are their products cheap (quality) but shipping takes forever. Try out mineral makeup instead, they are a much better for your skin! This is my favorite brand plus they have free samples! <--MINT!

Am I the only one who doesn't enjoy the shimmery quality of Nars Orgasm? Not for me, thanks.

i have the huge palette from sephora, and it comes with so many nice blushes, so i cant justify spending money on this, although i really want it lol

I have almost a full package of Orgasm blush. For some reason it really washed my face out and I have fair skin....I thought for sure it would work on me. I use Nars Amour and like it. Anyone want a Nars Orgasm blush that's had about 3 uses? LoL

This sounds like a great product, especially since the other fair-skinned ladies said the shades are flattering.

ELF ends up clearly being cheap. I know, it's a good deal, but you REALLY get what you pay for with them. Buy the real deal this time around, ladies.

I'm very fair skinned, and I've been using this Nars duo for ages. Both colours are so flattering separately or used together.

I would love to try this much-talked-about blush, but the problem is I never wear blush because I can't seem to get it right; I always end up looking like a clown and despite all the 'suck your cheeks in and apply it on your cheekbones' -tips, I still screw it up. I guess I'll buy this as a gift for a friend or something :( (at least in that case I could keep the Sephora Insiders sample that would come with it! hehe. j/k)

Orgasm doesn't look especially awesome on me, maybe it's a brown person thing and the knock off looks to light to work for me.

NARS is awesome, but I'd be willing to try the knockoff, too!

Lorac has a bronzer and blush compact as well...I cant remember the name of it, but its fairly decent. It might be less expensive, too.

I speak from experience...this combination is amazing!!!! i am a fair skin blonde blue eyed girl & this combination was a perfect pick my face up! though i ran out of the laguna bronzer pretty quickly, i'm still finishing on the orgasm blush...i feel incomplete leaving the house w/out that blush on! a must buy!!

Forget elf, I want the real deal! I've been wanting to try Orgasm blush, AND I've heard really good things about Laguna bronzer... This is the perfect duo, I'll be picking it up for sure.

I like it, probably won't try it though. I don't think it would work to well with my skin tone.
