Luxury VS Budget; the Battle of the Dupes

For a while now, I had been obsessed with the idea of buying Nars Orgasm blusher. This cult product has been on everyone’s lips for a while now, and I had serious make-up FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out). I baulked, however, at the idea of paying £21.00 for a blusher which surely cannot cost very much to produce.
It didn't seem right that people wealthier than I are boasting glowing, healthy-looking cheeks while my poor, grey, pallid ones faded into the background. And so my quest began.

Here are my favourite Nars Orgasm ‘dupes’, tried and tested for you, dear reader.

Instead of Nars Orgasm blusher,
Try Smooch Blusher in Kookie Crumble or Peachy, £8.50

As soon as I saw the cute box and smart inner packaging I knew I was onto a winner with Smooch. The closest match to Nars Orgasm is the slightly sparkly Kookie Crumble shade, which went on beautifully and left my cheeks gently flushed and glowing. If you prefer something a bit pinker, the Peachy duo is the blusher for you. I was surprised at how much I liked this one, and the day I wore it, a few people said I looked ‘younger’ and ‘pretty’ – result! 

You could also try new brand A.K.A’s rather marvelous blushers in Frosty Flower or Innocent Blush, £7.00

Howdy! I realize this is sort of off-topic however I needed to ask.
Does building a well-established blog such as yours require a large amount of work?
I am brand new to operating a blog however I do write in my diary on a daily basis.
I'd like to start a blog so I can share my own experience and thoughts online. Please let me know if you have any ideas or tips for new aspiring blog owners. Thankyou!
