Echo blusher is a coral hued pink with gold shimmer. It's probably a little similar in colour to NARS Orgasm though I don't have own it to make a direct comparison. It's richly pigmented with a smooth texture. When applied, I find it gives my cheeks a sheen in a similar way to a MAC Mineralise Skin Finish but without all the chunky glitter and fall out.
As it's quite pigmented, I find it best to use a light hand and add more as requires. I find it's a perfect colour for the warmer weather and I have enjoyed pairing it with my Lip Chic in Zinnia.
Although I don't have NARS Orgasm to compare it to, I thought it would be interesting to compare it to the blusher in the Chantecaille Sea Turtles palette. In the pan, I think they look quite similar. When swatched, Echo is more coral whereas the Chantecaille is more pink based with less shimmer.

I'm very pleased that I finally have Echo. It's a very pretty, summery shade and makes a lovely change from my usual neutral pinks. I imagine it would look beautiful on a tanned complexion too.
