Ask Liz! > Perfect peach blush for morena

Hi Liz! I love your blog. I am quite a newbie to make up -- just still learning a few tricks from youtube tutorials and blogs like yours. :)

Anyway, I'm looking for the perfect peach/orangey blush for my medium to morena tone. I'm eyeing In2it waterproof blush set (the one you reviewed), etude house lovely cookie blush in #4 carrotcake and etude house dear my blooming cheek blush in OR201. Budget's kinda tight, but since everyone's raving about NARS SuperOrgasm, I am considering givng that to myself as a christmas gift.

Is the NARS blush worth the price? If ever I cannot afford that, which cheaper one do you recommend? THANK YOU SO MUCH!

Karen, NARS is totally worth the price. It's a blush that is totally flattering on morena skin! Or for that matter most skin tones. :D I've had mine for three years I think, AND I STILL USE IT. I store it in a cool place and sanitize every so often so I think it's still good to use. Powder makeup has a shelf life of three years, more if you take care of it. :)

So think about that - you get the ultimate flattering blush, plus you can use it for so long. P1400+ is a great deal na. The other blushes you mentioned are nice to have but not as nice as NARS. ;)

I also suggest you checkout MAC's peachykeen, kinda like Nars Orgasm. Retails at P 1300. Worth it. For pink blush, I heard MAC's Mocha is great too, but have got to try. I had Nars Orgasm for about 3 years na. Sulit because its a LOT of product for the price. You'll get sawa before it runs out ;)

Hi Karen! You might want to check out Nyx powder blush in Mocha. It fits the bill - perfect peach for medium skin, comparable to Nars Orgasm, and cheap at ~300.00 :-)

What about if you're darker than NC40? Would NARS Orgasm show up as a flush? kasi baka as a highlighter ang peg niya for deeper skin girls like me.

@Pong : Im NC40 and it shows up well naman. I heard Super Orgasm is better but have got to try.

@Karen NARS orgasm is really worth the price that is why a lot raves about it and it became almost the standard for peach colored blush. the wear time is better than a lot of the suggested dupes.
BUT if budget is really tight you might want to check ELF Candid Coral or Peachy Keen
