Review: Nars Orgasm

Published September 10, 2012 by sweetashoney

from the nars website

A couple of months back I purchased the nars orgasm beauty set from a website called Hq Hair. The set included orgasm lip gloss, blush and an illuminator.
The subject of today’s review is the blush.  It is beautifully packaged in matte plastic casing with a nice sized mirror.
The shade when applied is said to emulate the post orgasm glow! I don’t know about that – that said the colour is a stunning peachy pinky colour with embedded gold shimmer!
The shimmer is not chunky rather its very finely milled and on you skin it emanates a subtle glow!!!

Pro’s of Nars Orgasm
Colour is very pretty .
Its very sheer and buildable.  On my skin tone (mac nc40) I have to apply quite a bit for the pigment to show through.
Blush stays on up to 5-6 hours.
The blush will last along time

Con’s of Nars orgasm
Its very expensive, needs to be ordered online and then there’s customs duty!
Not available in South Africa.

All in all :  Orgasm is a gorgeous shade and it is worth the hype definitely,  if you have the budget for it! I really love this blush and find myself reaching for it almost all the time.
Darker skin tones will need to test before purchase because the pigment might not show up so nicely.

Have you tried this blush?
