Hardly Risque

Ever since I asked a friend what blush she was wearing, and she revealed it was NARS Deep Throat, I've been interested in adding it to my collection. Deep Throat is frequently described as being similar to NARS Orgasm, but without the shimmer. There are only subtle differences between the two in terms of colour, though Orgasm is more half colour, half shimmer, while Deep Throat is all colour but with a sheen.







l-r: Bourjois Rose Coup de Foudre, NARS Orgasm, NARS Deep Throat


Deep Throat is a warm peach with slight red tones, a touch of pink and a subtle golden sheen. Orgasm is a little pinker and overall sheerer, but with more pronounced gold shimmer. I thought Bourjois Rose Coup de Foudre would be close to Deep Throat, and sure enough, they swatch very similarly, though Rose Coup de Foudre is darker and a bit more orangey-red.

I've been wearing Deep Throat more than Orgasm, as the shimmer in Orgasm can be a bit too much for everyday wear. Orgasm is relatively sheer and takes some layering to build up, whereas Deep Throat is more pigmented and needs lighter application. Like all NARS blushes I've tried, they blend onto the cheek with ease, look natural and not patchy or ruddy, and stay on longer than most. Deep Throat is a versatile, very wearable shade that I reach for whenever I want to add a brightening, peachy flush that's still softer than coral  be it part of my daily face or for a special occasion.

  2. Great comparison and review, it seems like Nars blushes can be easily worn sheer or built up like crazy. Personally I'd pack on quite a bit more than you do...i'm a blush freak that way. However I find the bourjois one more appealing, more of an omph in finish of color! Thanks for reviewing! I think the only high end blushes I may invest in if I get any are lancome...after an encounter with one in a set...my love has yet to fade ^^

  4. I think Deep throat will be much better for my skin tone than Orgasm. These are just so expensive! I'll stock up on NARS on holiday. :)

  5. I want to try Nars blushes so bad! I love their packaging >.<
    I like the look of Deep Throat better than Orgasm because I'm not a fan of shimmery blushes.

    I love the titles of your posts, very creative ;)

  6. Very pretty! I don't own any NARS blushes yet, and I am worried to buy one because it might spark a spending spree!\

  7. My friend has a pan and I swatched it the other night - the glow has won me over so it's now on my wishlist :)

  8. I love that you have provided a swatch of a cheaper alternative. I do love mars products though and it's only a matter of time till a blush gets added to my growing collection!

  12. You know, I tried Orgasm and did not like it as much as the rest of blogosphere. Perhaps because it was too much, like you said. But this color looks better, as in tamer.

  15. I actually thought Deep Throat would be a lot darker than it is, and now you've made me really want it! I don't have any NARS blushes, but I'm definitely leaning toward it!

  17. it looks very pretty on you!
    i think i'd get something else if i am to buy another nars blush since i have a very similar color although many seem to prefer DT over Orgasm. ;)

  19. Is it lovely but i think orgasm is prettier <3 Nars cosmetics names are a big deal lol
    hugs!!

  20. I love the subtlety of it (although the name does make me giggle a little). I've been using a MAC one for everyday but I wear it far less often than I would if it weren't shimmery!

  26. Thanks for your lovely comment on my blog!
    I am on the fence right now about NARS Deep Throat as I just can't decide between that and Orgasm. Your post is definitely swaying me towards Deep Throat though as it seems more wearable. Great post and I love the quality of your photos!

  27. The amazing packaging gets me every time! Deep Throat looks great for an every day blush, I quite like this shade! And I must say, your blush collection is ever growing! Is there any difficulty picking which one to use each time you put on makeup? I always seem to have that problem when I purchase something new hehe!

    1. I have become a little blush happy of late! Not really, I normally go for Benefit Hervana, NARS Douceur or NARS Deep Throat for my day time blushes :) I like having variety when it comes to my blushes, I think they're a bit easier to change up than eyeshadows, especially as mine are mostly pink, peach or neutrals and hence fairly wearable no matter what the rest of my makeup is like :p

  30. I love Deep Throat and wear it more often than Orgasm for the same reasons - I just find it much more wearable for everyday, whereas i'll pick Orgasm to wear on a night out x

  31. What a lovely colour, so pretty and everyday-wearable ^^ I'm a sucker for peachy blushes so I'd love to add this one to my collection. All Nars products look so fancy because of the packaging and it's even better that the actual products live up to the hype : )

  32. So pretty and girly :)

  37. I JUST BOUGHT THIS TODAY! WOOT WOOT I bought it at Mecca though. :( So madly expensive it's surreal. Where did you get yours? I find mine looks much more pink in the pan than in your photos- but it definitely pulls peach on the skin.

    1. Yes I just read your post on it :) This one was bought at Lane Crawford in Hong Kong when a colleague went there a couple of months ago. I told him to buy like, 4 NARS blushes for me :p It came to around the same price as StrawberryNet or ASOS, basically $30. Mecca is uber overpriced but sometimes NARS goes on sale. I got the Enchanted cream blush recently for $23! Not sure I love it, but it's an okay cream highlighter, albeit super glittery.
