Some of the colors look scary in the compact because they are so highly pigmented. Exhibit A, for example, is a bright clownish looking orange-red that surely has scared off many a gal. But for those who know how to use a blush brush properly (ie, high quality bristles, good construction, a judicious amount of pressure, good blending), these babies pay off. And I mean pay off not just in beautiful color, but in how long they last, because this quality and pigmentation means you don't need to use a lot. One of these can last you a long, long time, even with daily use.

I have Exhibit A, Torrid, Taos, Crazed, Luster, and Mata Hari, which covers a range of warm and cool tones. Exhibit A is my fave go to red blush. Using just a touch of my duo-fibre MAC brush on it (ie MAC 187 brush), this deposits a beautiful, face-brightening blush to the cheeks. Too much and you look like Bozo, so this does require restraint.

Mata Hari is a lovely, feminine, cool pink-rose tone that I, who have olive skin, can wear and look like I was out walking briskly. Those two are my fave ones from NARS as they are matte. The others have some shimmer and require even more care in application and go well with a shiny gloss on the lips.

Luster is more like a highlighting color for me (it's a goldeny-lustrous color on me). It's pretty much the color of my skin with shimmer, so I can put it on without a color payoff, but it gives a nice glow that I like for days when I look "tired". A perking up thing. Also nice for adding glow when going out at night/to a party. On a lighter person, it's probably a nice warmth on the cheeks, sort of like a subtle bronzer. Could probably highlight eyes, all over, too. It's versatile.

Color: Orgasm
Why do they call this 'orgasm'? Because all you see are sparkles??? ugh.

I am very pale, and have auburn/reddish hair. This color SHOULD in theory look pretty spiffy on me, but I can't get past the fact that it looks like a GLITTERBOMB exploded on my face. What the ..>?!?!?!?!? And easy to overdo? Yes indeed! This blush is very very silky and soft; use a light hand. You can always add more but woe be to anyone who overapplies it. You'll look like a feverish clown!

For us (ahem) older ladies, try the Deep Throat. Pretty much the same color, without the glitty garbage all over every pore on your face!

UPDATE: I have the Orgasm/Laguna duo (reviews and photos and comparisons to other products coming soon) and it has been sitting ever since my horrifying discovery out in daylight, that there were glitter bits on my face from using the Orgasm blush. I have since discovered---your brush makes a LOT of difference. I switched to a very fluffy Real Techniques brush instead of my usual blush brush; it deposited gentle color and the glitter was very iffy. (As in, you couldn't really see obvious glitter but if you were verycloselikethis you could see tiny bits) I have revised my review a little bit. Still giving the advice that it's easy to overapply and, this color is sure not for everyone, but I don't want to shoot it with a silver bullet any more. If your skin has any tendency towards redness at all, I implore you to do a test run with this before you count on it looking good for any important (or public) event! I practically have to get microscopic amounts of this on the brush or it's too much for me, and does nothing positive to enhance my complexion. Pretend it's poisonous if you put on more than three nanospecks of it, that will help :-)

Color: Deep Throat
Although I am a dedicated MAC girl, their blush shades just don't do it for me. I went looking for the legendary Orgasm blush but was put off by all the glitter. Deep Throat is slightly softer and with much less sparkle. It is highly pigmented and requires a soft touch. It is also brighter than the picture on my screen. On me, it looks like my natural flush. This is definitely my HG blush.

Color: Taj Mahal Verified Purchase
Sam Fine, known as the master makeup artist for women of color, pointed to NARS Taj Mahal blush for any women of color in his blog. I am so glad that I read the blog and followed up on his valuable pointer. The color and properties of this blush are worthy of praise. Because the pigment is rich in color, I underline the importance of a gentle initial application, building color to fit your need. Upon seeing the color, I was concerned it would be too loud. I had never worn a pigment this bright or this orange. Also, I'd never worn a blush where the pigment carried so much color. It was with delight that I realized a far better outcome than had been my experience with Bobbie Brown and MAC cosmetics, two exceptional brands. Beyond the need for a light hand in applying the product, I'd recommend that other products used on the face be neutral, golden, bronze, brown and/or have an orange hue. For example, this burnt orange color blush will not work with pink or berry lipsticks. I found it to work very well with Cargo's Dark or Medium Bronzer, depending on your color. Cargo Bronzer is another Sam Fine pointer. I've been very pleased with brown and vanilla eye shadows and MAC's Chilie lipstick, a burnt orange color. For detailed and foolproof directions on how to apply, I recommend Sam Fine's DVD: FINE, the Basics of Beauty. Additionally, because the blush does not come with an applicator and the color is rich, it is important to have a blush brush to apply and blend.
