Hey guys!! SOO sorry I haven’t posted on here in a while, I have been super busy with assignments and looking for a placement, but I’ll try to post as much as I can!
If you know anything about makeup then you will definitely know the NARS Orgasm blush- a cult favourite for years. I absolutely love this blush, the colour, the formula, the glow… but who doesn’t love a cheaper alternative?!
The NARS blush retails for £23, and although it lasts pretty much forever, £23 is still quite a lot for a blush. Recently I was alternating between using the NARS blush and my favourite Milani blush, when I realised they’re actually quite similar so I thought I’d do a post on it for you guys.
The Milani blush in Luminoso is another favourite of pretty much everyone’s but I have never realised how similar the formula and finish is to the NARS Orgasm blush. The blush itself only costs £10 (and only $8 in the US) and is soo beautiful.
Although the blushes aren’t exactly the same colour, they both have a very similar golden undertone and the same effect when applied to the cheeks. Both blushes have a lovely natural finish with a golden, shimmery (but not glittery) effect.
Both blushes come with a mirror (although I must admit I do prefer the NARS packaging and mirror, it’s just easier to use), and the Milani one does come with a small brush for when you’re travelling. The brush isn’t anything great but it’s still nice to have just incase.
So here they are swatched side by side, with NARS Orgasm on the left and Milani Luminoso on the right. Although Orgasm is more pink toned whilst Luminoso is more peach, both shades do look quite similar and give your cheeks a natural flush of colour and a glow (I mean who doesn’t want that).
I personally love both blushes and alternate between the two each day (and I am currently using no other blushes) but if you are on a budget the Milani blush in Luminoso is sooo good and I would highly recommend for all skin tones!
Comment below if you have either of these blushes and what your thoughts are on them!
