Beauty Splurge vs. Steal of the Week: NARS Orgasm Blush

NARS Orgasm blush dupe - look for less

In this weekly column, I’m bringing you my favorite budget-friendly beauty products (and their high-end equivalents!) that are available online and in-store. This week, we’re chatting blush (!).

When it comes to blush, there is one that’s the classic go-to/industry standard. Ask any beauty editor, blogger or makeup artist and they will tell you: NARS Orgasm Blush is where it’s at. The shade looks great on almost any skin tone and its got a natural, healthy-looking color to it that really brightens up any face…but at $30 a pop?
Well, I found you an alternative. Milani Baked Blush in Dolce Pink is remarkably close, and only $7.50! The texture is silky smooth and I can barely tell the difference between this version and the NARS version.

A natural-looking rosy glow for less? Yes, please.

Nice find! The only thing I don't like about my NARS Orgasm is that it's quite shimmery - is this dupe just like that too?

Love Milani! It lasts longer on my cheeks than Nars. A great dupe!
