Review - NARS Blush in Orgasm.

Wednesday, March 27, 2013

You won't be able to delve too far into the beauty world without having knowledge of NARS Orgasm. Since it's release, the saucily named shade has reached cult favorite status. Why? It is said to give a universally flattering flush that, well, the name entails.

*Insert complaint about NARS packaging and how dirty it gets here*

The official shade description of Orgasm is a "peachy pink with shimmer". It is most definitely a peachy pink, and the finish has a soft golden sheen. The shade literally is flattering across nearly any skin tone.

Pigmentation is average; its nothing to write home about, but it isn't stiff. The glow is more apparent than the color in and of itself, and I feel that was exactly what NARS was trying to achieve in this shade. It yields a very natural flush; your skin, but healthier. The wear time is also average. Not the longest wearing shade I've tried, but it doesn't leave me high and dry after only a few hours.



- Natural flush.
- Universally flattering.
- Glowy sheen rather than shimmer.


- Could be a touch more pigmented.
- Packaging gets dirty easily.

This shade is a staple in nearly anyone's makeup bag. You'll get use out of it and it will never "go out of style". The shade itself is often attempted to be duped, so check your collection before making the investment in this one!

  1. Great review think I'd opt for a cheaper dupe first and see if I liked it!
