I’ve said – ad nauseum – that I never expected to do daily makeup. Still true, friends. Even truer: Of all the cosmetics I expected to utilize on a regular basis, blush was dead last on my list. But sometime last winter, a friend recommended this blush – the legendary NARS Orgasm – and I thought, huh. Makeup doesn’t generally get to be legendary for no reason. Maybe I should give it a whirl.
So in a fit of extravagance, I plunked down $27 on my first ever blush. It’s a peachy-pink shade with the world’s subtlest shimmer. And I found that it made me look warmer, perkier, and even a bit more cheerful. Applying any blush at all helps define my face a bit, but this particular shade just made everything about my complexion sing. And, from what I hear, it does that for virtually all Caucasian complexions. (Haven’t heard as many rave reviews from women of color.)
