Having seen Temptalia rave about this "Orgasm but so, so much better" blush - I had to check it out. You'll know from previous posts if you're a regular reader that I'm a fan of NARS Orgasm - but I do find it a little muted and more peachy compared to the in-pan colour. It's not the most long-lasting blush, either - particularly on my oily skin. Impudique still had some work to do to convince me, however..
..And convince me it did.
Impudique is a rich, medium-deep raspberry shade, with a very soft, sophisticated, warm golden shimmer. I promise you - the shimmer is so beautifully fine that it just leaves a smooth sheen on the cheek - no glitter in sight, and it is pore-friendly. If you find Orgasm is just too much - Impudique has a much finer pearl. Yep, it's pretty bright, and is extremely pigmented - a duo-fibre type brush is your friend here - but it blends so beautifully that this really isn't a huge problem. The texture is very finely milled and smooth, and isn't too firmly pressed in the pan. One sweep of a blush brush is more than enough for a cheek!
You can see below Impudique compared to Orgasm in the pan. Bear in mind the blush on the left is new and barely used yet compared to Orgasm on the right - but you can easily see the textural and shade difference.
And below - swatched. Less shimmery, more punchy. Gorgeous.
