Diamond Blush 02 [アプリコットピンク] [[REVIEW]] – DUPE FOR NARS ORGASM

Posted in Diamond Blush, Milani, NARS by Jae on March 28, 2011

-grinning- One day break and I’m back with yet another review, I promise the wait was worth it because I might just have found a dupe for our beloved NARS Orgasm blush.

I’m looking at Diamond Blush 02 [アプリコットピンク] today!

*Shoutout going out to cubby for loaning me her blush! ❤ -grinning- you’ve got awesome taste, bby.

Now, the same with the other Diamond Blush pieces, this piece came with a little crystal stuck on the ‘i’ as well but this time, it’s pink. -laughing- These little touches of effort never fail to get to me.

I also love that the blush comes in a decently weighted plastic casing that opens and closes with a snap.

It’s really quite slim so it makes transporting it a dream. I do think that it’s actually a lot more portable than my MAC or even Melliesh blushes.

Yet I’m not losing out on value because it’s a whopping 6g of product for just 1050Yen and that’s so much cheaper than anything else I own.

And the ultimate thing? It’s a freaking gorgeous blush.

It looks very intimidating in the pan but when swatched, it’s just so beautiful.

It’s a peachy blush with an obvious golden sheen than looks pretty much exactly like you guessed it, NARS’ Orgasm, so it’s the perfect blush to give a sun-kissed glow to medium to tanned skin and a nice flush to fair skin.

Careful though because Diamond Blush is quite pigmented, it’ll be very easy to overdo especially for fair skin.

I’ll show you.

Now, in the pan, Diamond Blush looks a lot like Milani’s Mai Tai, but Mai Tai’s a completely matt blush that really looks nothing like Orgasm. And then I swatched NARS Orgasm and Diamond Blush side by side.

I’ve stared at it for about three hours now and till now, I still think they look incredibly similar.

The same golden sheen and the exact same tone.

So there you have it! A gorgeous blush here that looks 95% like NARS Orgasm but at about half the price -grinning-

Hope you found this review helpful, dearie!
