NARS Orgasm Dupe? Try NYX Pinched!

There is no doubt about it that NARS Orgasm is one of the best and probably the most famous blush in all of makeup land. But the price isn't really as popular at $28 bucks a pop. I can remember a time when they were $25 a few years ago. So if you would love to try the infamous Orgasm but can't justify the cost, try NYX Pinched which is a super duper close dupe and about 1/5 of the cost. Currently at ULTA, NYX is buy 1 get 1 50% off which is a great deal. I am a big fan of NYX blush and eyeshadow and think they are by far the best quality "drugstore" items around. NYX Pinched shares the same peachy glowy goodness as Orgasm which makes it a perfect summer blush and really gives a nice sheen to the skin. If you're interested, have a look!

    1. I know! That's what I thought, I love those peachy pink shades that have some shimmer but not over the top! Thanks for reading~!

  3. I just wore Pinched today! I really like it.
    I have never tried a Nars blush..... a bit too pricey for me, so I can't compare.
    But I love how Pinched has lasted all day! :)
    Great post!
    Thank you,
    Tracy :)

    1. Isn't it such a great color?? I also think Pinched looks a lot like MAC Springsheen. NYX Peach blush is great too, you would like it if you like Pinched!!
