Sleek Rose Gold Blush: A Dupe for Nars Orgasm?

Hello Lovelies!

As you probably know I'm always on the hunt for good dupes of those highly hyped high end products and one of the most hyped high end pieces of make up has to be the Nars Orgasm blush. Famous for the gorgeous healthy 'afterglow' it creates I was desperate to get my hands on it, however a £21 blush and a bank account that hasn't seen a student loan since April doesn't mix well so I thought I'd give Sleek's £4.49 Rose Gold blush (available from Superdrug or the Sleek website) a go instead as I swatched both of them when I was in Oxford Street last week and they seemed pretty identical...


As a girl who is far too obsessed with peach and coral cream blushes this is something a little different for me as it's a deep rose pink colour with a silky powder consistency and subtle gold shimmer. As you can see from the photo of Orgasm below, the blushes have a pretty exact colour match and I'd even say I prefer the colour of Rose Gold as when I swatched Orgasm the gold was a bit overwhelming, however Sleek seem to have used just the right amount to create a lovely glow...although if you have a great aversion to anything shimmery then I'd try before you buy. I also found I didn't need to use a highlighter with this blush as when the gold catches the light it really illuminates the cheekbones. For a blush that's under five pound I'm also very impressed with the quality as it's nicely pigmented and the black packaging makes it look far more professional and high end than it is (although I do find you need strong nails and sometimes teeth to open it!) From the tests I've done it seems to last all day on the cheeks and overall I think it's the perfection addition to the make up bag of anyone that's looking for a nice different all year round glowing blusher but doesn't fancy forking out over 20 pound for it! Probably the best dupe I've found :)


I've been loving the weather this weekend and spent yesterday mooching around London in the sunshine with my boyfriend before we went to see Spamalot which was one of my birthday presents to him. I'm a massive musical and Monty Python lover so thought it was amazing and so funny! Then today I've been resuming my sun bathing and chilling out, so yeah quite enjoying all this time off malarkey at the moment...

I hope you've all had a lovely weekend!
Love Meg

  8. I've got both of them and they look completely different on me which is weird because swatched they're pretty similar. Orgasm looks much pinker on me and Rose Gold is much peachier. I love em both tho!x

  14. Have you tried MUA's blush in shade 5? It's their new one and it's almost identical to orgasm, and just as pigmented - definitely worth a try for £1! Love reading your blog items then going to superdrug and buying what you reccommend lol! xxx

  22. After reading your post it took me forever to get hold of these blushes at super drug - but then someone told me to go there close to closing hours, when they have restocked their shelves, and thats when i found two blocks of rose gold and grabbed them! now that I have rose gold, I just love it! Thanks for the pics that helped decide!
