NARS Blush in Orgasm

by ionarosemccabe


Every time I find myself exploring the jungle of makeup counters located in Harvey Nichols or Lane Crawford, I am always immediately drawn to NARS. Perhaps it’s the beautiful nude tones of the lip-gloss or the earthy browns that can be found among the eye palettes? Either way, there was one product I have been dying to try. One with a particularly provocative name.  Orgasm to be exact.

Usually, during the day, I prefer my make-up to look glowing, yet not too ‘done’. When I bought this blush, I compared it with Super Orgasm which although was a lovely colour, it had a considerable amount of shimmer which was a bit much for my everyday use. Orgasm has just the right amount of peachy pink mixed with an iridescent gold sparkle to give a subtle radiance. It’s also great because it does not build up unnecessarily on the brush. This allows you to apply the required amount, building up colour as you wish.

To compliment this blush, I  team it with a rose gold MAC eye shadow and wear Soap & Glory ‘Glow all Out’ Luminizing Face Powder on my temples. My skin being somewhat of a dull pale colour, it needs products with a sheen to allow it to look warmer. I also find the colour stays on all day and does not go to patchy compared with other blushers I have tried. This is an important factor as I have freckles and anything that fades on my cheek area makes my skin look dirty.

This is another product that has gained an InStyle Best Beauty Buys award for the best powder blush, several years in the running. It has been worn by celebrities such as Zooey Deschanel – someone who always looks fresh-faced and youthful.

Being that I am really satisfied with Orgasm, I would definitely buy it again (or any other blushers from NARS). I love the neat, compact it comes in which also contains a small mirror. This is super handy for any touch-ups you may need.

As a last note, a little goes a long way with this blush, so don’t be put off by the price – it really is worth the investment!
