This blush has been with me for over a year now but i have only gotten to make a review of this now. this was a gift from hubby, and this was my 2nd NARS blush (first was the cult fave, Orgasm). Before i had bought Super Orgasm, Deep Throat was my favorite and i had been using this everyday for several months back then. 

I have a bias towards NARS blushes because they have such a wide array of pretty colors and the quality (texture and pigmentation) of their blushes are one of the best. They're expensive, but they're definitely worth your money. Nevermind the names though, i find them really weird. I mean at first I had Orgasm, which sounded cute and unique, but then my NARS collection grew and now i not only have Orgasm i also have Super Orgasm, Deep Throat, Torrid, and Striptease - collectively, they don't sound very cute anymore. Can you imagine how hubby reacted when he asked me what i wanted for my birthday and i said i wanted NARS Deep Throat? =)

The Good
 - the texture is velvety smooth and applies very smoothly to the skin
- pigmentation is ok, but not as heavily pigmented as my other NARS blushes 
-  described in their website as Peach with shimmer but in my opinion, this is more light pink than peach
- has very subtle shimmer that gives a dewy glow to the face without looking like a disco ball
- color is very wearable, a very pretty light pink
- the lasting power is GREAT! i have combination skin, so ordinary blushes normally last up to an hour only on me, this lasts all day long!
- contains a lot of product. this will last me a long time.
- compact comes with a mirror

The Bad
- as most NARS blushes, they're biggest letdown is their packaging. they come in this matte rubbery compact that easily attract dirt. 

Orgasm vs. Super Orgasm vs. Deep Throat

I promise to make a swatch comparison of these 3 blushes really soon. in the meantime, here is how i compare the three. In my opinion, all three blushes belong to the same family of peachy-pink blushes.


In the peach-o-meter this would be their rating:
 Peachiest * (1) Orgasm (2) Super Orgasm (3) Deep Throat


In the pink-o-meter this would be their rating:
Pinkest * (1) Deep Throat (2) Super Orgasm (3) Orgasm

In the shimmer-o-meter this would be their rating:
Most shimmery* (1) Super Orgasm (2) Orgasm (3) Deep Throat 

In the pigmentation scale this would be the rating:
Most pigmented* (1) Super Orgasm (2) Deep Throat (3) Orgasm


Final Verdict
A+++++
I love love love Deep Throat!
oops, that didn't sound too good.. haha..
