Hello gorgeous Makeup Geeks! Here’s my next product smackdown, where I compare a “high end” product with a “budget” one. I’m comparing 2 blushes today- the ever popular NARS Orgasm blush vs the MUD Glow one…
NARS Blush – “Orgasm”
NARS blushes are known throughout the makeup community for being the smoothest and richest blushes out there. The top selling color of all time is “Orgasm”- a slightly shimmery peachy pink color that looks great on just about everyone. This blush gives a subtle glow and warmth to the cheeks (um… maybe why it has it’s name? ;) ) The only downside is the price- at $27 it is a bit pricey for a blush
Makeup Designory Blush – “Glow”
When I first tried the MUD blushes, I was actually very impressed! The texture is very similar to NARS- smooth, richly pigmented, and not overly shimmery. This color “glow” is almost an exact dupe for the ever popular NARS “orgasm” but is 1/2 the price. My other favorite colors by MUD are “bubblegum”- a nice bright matte pink, and “soft peach”- a nice warm peach color. I honestly have no complaints about these blushes- you can get in refills to put in your palettes if you like, or buy in a pot like the picture above.
Where to Buy: Makeup Geek Store
I am going to say that it is worth trying the MUD blush to save some money- this doesn’t mean that I don’t still love my NARS one! But as you can tell from the swatches, it’s an easy way to save some money :)
Have a wonderful weekend, muggies!!!
