One of the most known blushes is probably NARS’ Orgasm Blush. It’s a beautiful peachy pink blush that has a lot of shimmer in it. There are a lot of dupes to that shade but I want to show you an organic option for it: Zuii Organic’s blush in shade Melon.

So let’s compare them.

Color – they are very similar peachy/pink colors but Melon is a bit more pink than Orgasm. They both have nice pigment but Melon has definitely more of it than Orgasm. Melon is an intense color whereas Orgasm is more sheer. And I tried my best to make it intense in the swatch.

Shimmer – Orgasm certainly has more shimmer and glitter in it than Melon. The glitters are also bigger than in Melon. Melon has a lot of shimmer in it too but it’s very fine so it doesn’t look that glittery.

Texture – Melon is very smooth and easy to apply. Orgasm is more dry and it doesn’t go on as smoothly as Melon does. I don’t have dry skin but I have some dryness on my skin every now and then and I’ve had trouble applying Orgasm. I think you can see the color/shimmer/texture difference in the swatches quite well.

Packaging – The packaging is quite similar in both of these. Simple black. NARS has a satin almost suede feel to it though and that’s why it’s harder to keep it clean.  Zuii has a transparent lid and I like that I can see the blush  through. Both are beautiful.

Price – Both are about 30 euros so there’s no difference there.

I love them both but I have to say Melon blush is better in quality. I’m actually still wondering how Orgasm is so popular – am I the only one having trouble with the patchiness? The colour however is beautiful.
