I bought this blush on my birthday, and it’s safe to say it has started a new obsession. Nars describe Torrid as a ‘coral with shimmer’ it is a coral that leans orange, and has a soft gold shimmer. The shimmer is very fine, and there is no visible or chunky glitter. In theory this shade does sound quite similar to the infamous Orgasm, but they are nothing alike, Torrid is most definitely a red/orange toned coral, while Orgasm is a lot pinker. When swatched together Orgasm pulls a lot pinker, and has a more obvious shimmer.
Torrid would flatter a wide range skin tones, as the red tones would suit most skin tones. This is the first coral blush I own, and I haven’t reached for a pink blush since I bought it.
Texture wise this (and the other) Nars blushes are flawless, this blends with no problem and the shimmer looks natural whilst still giving a gorgeous glow.
I apply this with either the Japonesque Blush Brush or Real Techniques Stippling Brush (both available at Boots) and love to pair with a warm nude like MAC Kinda Sexy or reds (my favourite being Revlon Strawberry Suede or MAC Ruby Woo).
