A Nars Orgasm Dupe For Every Budget

Nars Orgasm blush is one of the most popular blushes of all times and with good reason; the flattering peachy pink shade with golden undertones seems to flatter just about every skin type regardless of whether your warm or cool. It's won tons of awards and is often named a top pick among makeup artists faves. 

It's such a hit that Nars has expanded the Orgasm color selection to not just blush but also lip gloss, an illuminizer, the Multiple (a highligher), lipgloss, lipstick and even a liquid blush. 

If you're looking for a solid Nars Orgasm dupe you're in the right place. We are going to break down a large number of Nars Orgasm blush dupes from drugstore to high-end. Check out the closest dupes below. 

The Balm Hot Mama

The Balm's Hot Mama is a great dupe; it's a teeny bit peachier and more "salmony" compared to Orgasm but it's in the same color family with the same gold undertones and warm color. I think this is a lovely color for summer or spring; it brightens up cheeks instantly. Pigmentation is excellent; I find it even more pigmented compared to the original. The texture is silky soft and very blendable. The packaging is cardboard but it's very durable (I've had mine for years and it's still holding steady). 

Bourjois Lilas D'Or

If you're looking for the closest dupe color wise, Bourjois D'Or is probably it. Other colors may lean a bit more peach or pink but this one seems the closest color wise (scroll all the way down to our swatch sections to see it side by side against the original. It's also a lot more affordable than Nars Orgasm dupe. 

Sleek Rose Gold 

Sleek Rose Gold is a gorgeous dupe that is even more pigmented than the original. The golden sheen and highlighting effect is quite strong which means you won't have to apply a separate highlighter. The packaging is decidedly upscale for its price point. It can be difficult to locate in-store but you can purchase it Amazon below. 

ELF Studio Contouring Blush & Bronzer St Lucia

ELF is one of my favorite drugstore brands because it's so incredibly affordable. They've made an excellent dupe of the Nars Orgasm & Laguna duo at a rock bottom price. The bonus here is that you get two products/dupes in one package. The pink color is gorgeous and similar to the original but it doesn't seem to have as much intensity in terms of pigmentation. The ELF bronzer is also a tad more warm and chocolatey looking while Laguna is more on the taupe side. 

MAC Springsheen 

Mac Springsheen is a great dupe for Orgasm Blush. The color is almost identical; a gorgeous peachy pink shade with golden undertones that is super flattering. The formula is super smooth and silky with long lasting power. It also seems to give my skin a glowy lit from within look. In terms of dupes it's probably one of the closest. 

Milani Baked Blush Luminoso

If you're looking for a cheap drugstore dupe check out Milani in Luminoso. This blush is currently the #1 best seller in Face Blushes at Amazon as of Aug 2017. It's packaged in a classy gold container and we loved the fact that it's a baked blush. It also doesn't have excessive glitter and won't leave you looking like a glitter bomb. The peachy pink color is very similar to the original and won't break the bank.

Nars Orgasm Dupes

Below are swatches and comparisons of another great dupe; ELF in St Lucia. The great thing about it is that in addition to the Orgasm dupe it also contains a dupe of Nars' famous bronzer Laguna. I own this duo and even though the colors are similar and the ELF blush offers a similar color the pigmentation is a lot chalkier and not as refined and pigmented as Nars. It is a lot more affordable and the fact that it contains two products may be a bonus if you are on a budget. Buy this ELF duo at Amazon

When it comes to an almost exact dupe color wise, Bourjois Lilas D'Or is probably the closest  I've seen. It's also offers better pigmentation than the original. If you're looking for the closest color match this would be the one to pick. It's also a lot more affordable than Nars Orgasm. Buy it here at Amazon
