NARS Orgasm Blush has a Dainty Doll dupe?
It's not very often you come across a product that can match up to a classic. I was given the heads up that Dainty Doll Powder Blush in 004 You Are My Sunshine was a pretty good NARS Orgasm Blush dupe. Dainty Doll is a range by Nicola Roberts of Girls Aloud fame and, although not my cup of tea, she's made a mean blush!
I was lucky enough to have already picked up my own Orgasm blush in Sephora last July while visiting Megan (Little Miss Average) and fallen head over heels in love. It's a little too flashy for day time use unless you're light handed with the brush, but a solid staple in my makeup bag. If you can't afford to shell out £21.50 for a blush then giving the Dainty Doll version, a meagre £13.50, a whirl might be a wise investment. After having swatched them both a multitude of times and worn both throughout the day I still find it very hard to distinguish the two. Perhaps You Are My Sunshine leans slightly more to the golden end of the spectrum yet it's fascinating just how close they are in tone. The formulation is smoother and much easier to blend than the classic NARS offering, which took me by surprise. I was lucky enough to snap this up for £1.99 in the fragrancedirect.co.uk sale, but I think they only have Happy Shake left.
I will be using this one a lot over the summer for a slightly bronzed look without breaking the bank. Do you have any duplicates that you adore?
