Review: NARS Orgasm Blush

This has been one of my favorite blushes over the past few years. 
It's NARS famous blush in Orgasm, a very gorgeous peachy pink 
with extra fine golden shimmers.

This is my second NARS blush, my first one was Deep Throat, 
also a very pretty and flirty peach tone blush, 
unfortunately it got stolen along with my handbag :(
So I got this ... the most famous and iconic orgasm blush^^ 
I had this blush for almost 2 years, and still have this much left!!

The packaging of this blush is pretty compact and light-weight! 
Dimensions: Length 2 3/4, Width 2 3/8, and Depth 5/8 (inches)
(about 7cm x 5.5cm x 1cm)

Back of the packaging. Made in Canada. 0.16 Oz/4.8 g

 This blush packaging comes in a matte rubberized finish so it 
shows up scratches, smudge of makeup and maybe fingerprints, 
which may be a downside for some people, but I don't really mind 
as this orgasm blush is so gorgeous and cute! I've tried to clean it 
before taking the picture, but this is what it looks like...after using
for almost 2 years^^

Inside there's a clear plastic protector for the blush with NARS on it,
and a small mirror, about the same size as the blush. 

I got this for $25 at Sephora, but it's now $27 :( It may sound 
pricey at first, but for the quality and quantities, I guess the price
is alright, and it truly last for a long time!

it looks shimmery in the packaging, but the texture is actually very 
smooth and soft, and very easy to blend. It gives skin a natural glow,
without the powdery feeling.

This shade is super super natural and translucent, you can barely see
the shimmers once applied, but a subtle and natural pink that brighten
up the complexion.

in this close-up swatch you can see those extra fine golden shimmers
it creates a healthy glow to the skin, so so pretty ^_^

As we usually don't see people up-close in the face, 
this is what the swatch looks like on my bare arm, so
natural and pretty. (note: I have medium-light skin tone)

I usually wear this blush alone, but sometimes I layer it with
Bobbi Brown's shimmer brick in Rose, very lovely in both ways!

Would you wear this blush? What's your favorite blush from NARS?
