Blush Challenge – Collection of O dupes

Several thousand dollars ago, I bought high-end makeup thinking it would help my acne-prone skin. I tried probably every foundation in every department, specialty, and drug store, and bought matching blushes, eye shadows, liner, mascaras, and lippies. My sprees ended before Nars Orgasm was released so I’ve never actually tried it.

In fact, I bought all of these blushes (except Silk Naturals Climax; that was kind of obvious) without knowing about the huge O dupe market, which is probably why I’ve ended up with four.

Silk Naturals Climax, e.l.f. Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder, Everyday Minerals Snuggle all looked pretty much the same. Aromaleigh Rococo seemed to be in the same color family, with a lot more depth.

In this photo, they all seem to be strikingly similar, with the exceptions that Silk Naturals washed out and Aromaleigh was a bit more shimmery. This is pretty much how I saw them on my face too.

I ended up tossing Everyday Minerals Snuggle (just a tiny bit left in the sample jar anyway) and giving away Silk Naturals Climax – the e.l.f. palette is really convenient for travel, and I just love Aromaleigh Rococo, so those two are keepers.

  1. Hi Wendy! 17 blushes, wow! As I mentioned today, I only own 5 – and yes, one of them is Nars Orgasm, which I love, love, love and keep replacing b/c I love it so much! It’s my “Old Faithful” as far as blush goes!

I'd love to hear from you
