Nars Orgasm v The Balm Hot Mama

 
 
Probably everyone who is remotely interest in beauty will have heard of Nars Blush in Orgasm. This peachy pink blush with golden shimmer is a bit of a cult beauty product, with so many people singing it's praises. I decided to buy it to see what all of the fuss was about and to begin with really wasn't that impressed. A while later I brought it back out of my collection and for some reason had changed my mind about it. I really liked it.
 
 
I came across a pretty good dupe for Nars Orgasm which is The Balm Hot Mama All-In-One Shadow & Blush.

Nars Orgasm
 
Nars Orgasm looks slightly pinkier in the pan than Hot Mama. As you probably can tell my Nars Orgasm has been well used and has sort of gone a bit hard and lumpy. I also hate that they packaging gets so dirty so easily.
 

The Balm Hot Mama
 
The Balm Hot Mama is again a peachy pink with golden shimmer. This one looks slightly peachier in the packaging. It has a really nice consistency and is very pigmented. Again I'm not a fan of the packaging and it too gets very messy easily.

As you can see when swatched they look really very similar to each other. Both give a gorgeous glow to the cheeks and the peachy pink colours are perfect for spring summer. The Nars blusher retails for £21.50 whereas the The Balm blusher is £15.00. I really like both of these blushers and think that if you want to save a little bit of money (every little helps) then The Balm Hot Mama is a great alternative.
