There are many dupes of Nars Orgasm out there, and one of them is SN Climax.
I'm not sure if people have actually seen SN Climax, or just heard of it. Either way, I made this post so yall can compare and see for yourself which you like better, whether you can tell the difference, etc.
Since everybody loves pictures, and pictures show a lot more than words, here are pictures below, and you can make the judgement for yourself. Then I will add on my babblings under it and tell you my opinion and what I feel of each product.
This one is in natural light, as you can probably already tell due to the slight blue hue on the edge from the window
I did a -2 or a -1. 1/3 flash on this one. Indoor Artificial light
Natural light, no flash, slightly near window
more near the window, natural light, no flash
-2 or -1 1/3 flash, indoor artificial light
same flash as above
with low flash
no flash. artificial light
no flash. artificial light
no flash, but adjusted lighting to + 2/3 , somewhere around there
no flash, lighting is balanced at 0 (zero) artificial light
low flash. artificial light
My Take on NARS Orgasm
- more shimmer
- strictly pinky-peach, no plum like Climax
- pressed powder
- packaging comes with mirror, but no applicator
- more ingredients = not as natural for skin
My Take on SN Climax
- a more "plum" touch added to it, so not as pinky or peachy as Orgasm. Mix b/w pink, peach, and plum.
- less shimmer
- costs $6.25 + shipping/handeling
- loose powder
- packaging is just a jar with sifter, no mirror nor applicator
- less ingredients = more natural for skin
** Note, the packaging I ordered was a sample, that's why it's a small size. I'm sure the regular full size should be bigger than what I showed.
haha, enough pictures for yall to compare?? lol I think i might have added TOO many pictures..? XD Well in either way, hope it helped some of yall :)
For me personally, I don't like Climax as a dupe. Not only would I have to order online and wait for it to come, but I feel that it'll be a bit of a hassle to carry around to touch up, you know? No mirror and no applicator. While I know Orgasm doesn't have an applicator either, at least it has a mirror and you can probably dab your fingers around to apply it--I did that once and it ended up fine. I like Nars Orgasm better because it's more pink and peachy. I don't like that extra plum undertone that Climax has, but that's my preference. Some people may not be able to tell between the two, or may actually like the plum undertone. Plus, I know some of yall favor the non-shimmery look, and Climax would definitely help out. For now, I'll use up my Nars Orgasm, and use Milani Luminous blush next as my dupe since after seeing so many swatches of it, it appears to be the closest dupe to Nars, plus I can find it in stores, the packaging has a mirror and applicator, is cheaper, and just might be better than the original Nars Orgasm.
**I can't tell which one is "sheerer" than the other since both of them aren't pressed powders. Since SN Climax is loose, I could have accidentally used more of it than Nars, or vice versa.
Any questions? ask! :)
Thanks for reading and stopping by! Come back again :)
