NARS Blush Deep Throat Review & Swatches

NARS Blush Deep Throat 4

Ahhh NARS Orgasm. Love it but hate the shimmer factor? I must be a completely crazy person but I honestly don’t see the problem with O or Super O. Super Orgasm definitely has sparkle, no doubt. Big azz chunky glitter style sparkle but…you can buff it easily away. And O, well, it just has this iridescent glow to it that’s so damn gorgeous.

People can preach to me daily that they feel both shades are incredibly overrated but I simply stick my fingers in my ears and go, LA-LA-LA-LA!

I love the shade. It’s just the perfect golden pink peach.

Ok, so we established you dislike the shimmer…

Have you met NARS Deep Throat?

NARS Deep Throat Blush is described as a sheer peach however, for me it’s all about NARS Orgasm. Mind you it isn’t completely a dupe but it does have those same elements of pink and golden peach goodness that make Orgasm so incredibly beautiful.

NARS Blush Deep Throat Swatches

Deep Throat is more for the girl (or guy) who isn’t keen on the shimmery sheen you’d get from Orgasm or Super Orgasm. It is considerably more subdued in the shimmer department than either of those two shades and leaves more of a glowing sheen on skin.

It’s quite a warm shade that has a bit of a chalkiness to it on swatch however, it blends easily onto cheeks and builds just as wonderfully. The color has considerably more pop to it than you’d get from either Orgasm shades and is a bit warmer with hints of coral to it but it still manages to keep that golden pink peach that we know and love about Orgasm.

I actually own a ton of NARS Blushes but I didn’t pick up Deep Throat until just recently because it always swatched so poorly in store. After hearing so many raves I decided I had to try it out myself and it’s definitely a love!

Mind you my top favs are O and Super O but this is a refreshing change when I want a bit more coral and a little less pink.

If you can’t take the shimmer factor, Deep Throat is your gal.

    I’m crazy for Nars blushes… Kind, completely! This color is to die, but I think I still prefer Orgasm, forever. I have in my possession yet, but someday I will have it.

    Kisses

    I disliked how Orgasm looked on me because of the shimmer, but for some reason I never even thought to try Deep Throat. I don’t know how i got this impression, but I thought it would be a more intensified Orgasm–more bright, more shimmery, etc. Now I think I have to go swatch this one

    I’m one of those that Thinks O is overated. But Deep Throat? I love it, wear it regularly and I must have at least 30 blushes!

    I have very pale skin and I love this blush. Orgasm is lovely, but a little too shimmery for my subdued work environment. Deep Throat is the perfect alternative.

    I have this from IDK when. It’s at least a year old it was in a set with super o stick blusher and something else. This is one of my fave colors. Nars blushes are consistently good imo.

    As much as I like doing a bit of shimmer on models, I don’t like shimmery blushes on myself, so this one could be something for my personal stash :-)

    you made me laugh… i love your writing style “People can preach to me daily that they feel both shades are incredibly overrated but I simply stick my fingers in my ears and go, LA-LA-LA-LA!”

    with that being said… i work at sephora and 9 times out of 10 when I apply orgasm on a gal… she falls in love with it (and the name tee hee)

    Deep Throat is my daily go-to blush. I’m a public school teacher and this one ALWAYS looks nice for day wear. Orgasm can be a little much and Madly (my other love….swatches awful in the store!) is an evening color on my skin. Glad you tried it! It’s one of my all time faves!

    Hi
    Will this work on porcelin skin? I’ve been interested in nars for awhile and I need a new blush. Somehow I just can’t stand drugstore markup, it just feels and seems so passé, tacky, and cheap lol. Unfortunately I don’t live near a sephira so the only option is to order online. Thanks for any feedback and sorry for my ramble.

    Btw how do I sub to u? I don’t have a blog but I’m fascinated with yours and u seem to have a pretty loyal following.

    -Bella
