NARS Orgasm Collection: Drugstore Dupes

Well, in caving in and buying the NARS Orgasm Blush and getting hooked on the whole peachy/gold line, I started looking into some cheaper drugstore versions of the other Orgasm products. Everytime I go into Sephora I alwaaays ask for a free sample of something.

                           NARS ORGASM BLUSH
I have the NARS Orgasm Blush which is described online:
'NARS Orgasm makes cheeks blush a perfect pinky-peach flush and subtly highlights with accents of golden shimmer. The perennially pleasing, universally flattering shade is again and again a makeup artist and beauty editor favorite.'

I have the NARS Orgasm Blush already but I've read online that if you want a really good dupe, its Milani: Luminous. I believe you can get these at CVS but Im not 100% on that.

                      NARS ORGASM ILLUMINATOR

Then I really was interested in the NARS Orgasm Illuminator. I got a sample at Sephora, and a little bit goes a looong way so the little sample I got has lasted me and Im conserving, let me tell you.
I actually use the NARS Orgasm Blush as eyeshadow, and pat the Illuminator on lightly over my eyelids. Its a very dewey/wet peach look. I also pat the illuminator on my cheeks after the blush. Again, a kind of dewey peachy-gold look.

A really close Dupe is Hard Candy Glow All the Way Glamazon Bronze face & body Illuminator. It's sold at Walmart and is pretty dead on to the NARS brand. The NARS brand is $29 at Sephora and Hard Candy Glow All the Way Glamazon is $8 at Walmart.


NARS lipgloss was next on the list. At $24 from Sephora, I wasnt too keen on spending that much.

SO I found a few good dupes. I read that NYC Liquid Lip Shine in Sungold Pink. I went to Walmart and they didn't carry it.

I found another good dupe that may not be identical to the color, but goes very well with the peachy tone of the illuminator and blush.
Its NYC Liquid Lipshine in Brighton Beach Peach. I did find this one at Walmart and I think its around $3.
I've heard of another NARS Orgasm Lipgloss dupe, by Revlon. Revlon Colorburst Lip Gloss No. 8 Peony.

I haven't looked into this one yet, but it's available at Walgreens for around $10.

If you're looking into the NARS Orgasm Collection but want a cheaper version, I hope this was helpful. I LOVE the blush and got hooked after that. It's a really clean look.

DON'T FORGET TO USE PRIMER! I use Makeup Forever HD High Definition Primer.

I also use a light foundation, remember to have one with at LEAST SPF 15. I use LORAC ProtecTint SPF 30 Tinted Moisturizer in 'In the Buff'. I use a Kabuki Brush and kind of just buff it in. Its a super light foundation with moisturizer and tint to it.
