unfortunately, even if i was made in Baguio, i was not born with naturally glowing and rosy cheeks, and on this fateful day i was wearing most of my top 10 este 13 most favorite products. my number 2 of which is my nars orgasm blush. so nope, it wasn't just kim hyun joong that gave me that perfect salmon-peachy pink glow, it was my supportive hubby and hyun joong's drop dead gorgeous body guard LOL (la lang di kasi retokado ang fez yet still handsome, not cute, but handsome, like the prodigal son of John Barrowman or something) and the Nars Orgasm blush ;-)
but there are brands out there that try and are good dupes such as theBalm's Hot Mama, and there are brands out there that do try hard to dupe such as Lumiere's Ditto O even the name ditto (same here) then O, O what? oklahoma? osaka? but here it is.
|Aspect||Nars' Orgasm||Lumiere's Ditto O|
|Shade Match||n/a||almost exactly the same peachy pink quality both in pictures and in real life|
|Coverage||more pigmented a little goes a long way||a little less pigmented, takes 2-3 more swipes to get the glow|
|Finish||satin finish||pearl-esque less satin-y|
|Lasting Power||lasts all day and does not oxidize on me||needs a least a retouch after 4-5hours due to slight fading|
|Break Out||none ^_^||none so far|
|Price||PhP1350 locally available at Rustans||4gram jar is US$7.2 (wow hindi na masama - not bad) but currently still not locally available though their site itself ships internationally (no need to find a reseller)
so whatchatink? tipid mode (recession-frugal time but gotta have that O) or the real deal since it's hassle to go online have your cc/paypal ready WAIT at least 2 wks for your package only to be hassled by customs/phil post if you order a lot? hahaha bitter?
