What is it? Orgasm blush by NARS “makes cheeks blush a perfect pinky-peach flush and subtly highlights with accents of golden shimmer. The perennially pleasing, universally flattering shade is again and again a makeup artist and beauty editor favorite.” Available at Sephora and Department Stores for $28.
What did you think? It’s funny how some products, like Clinique’s Black Honey, look great on almost everyone. Orgasm is one of these “universally kick-ass” products. The shade looks bright—almost too bright!—in it’s packaging, but when it goes on, it does magical things.
I am very fair skinned, and I always worry if I am wearing too much blush. With Orgasm, I don’t worry. The shade is flattering, providing enough color on my cheeks to give the rest of my face a healthy glow. It really does leave my skin looking naturally pretty—not overly done.
This is a makeup bag staple (I honestly can’t believe I haven’t featured it on my blog before today!) that I never regret picking up. Sure $28 may seem pricey for a blush, but remember: a little goes a long way and it will last you a good while. Plus, did I mention how kick-ass and flattering this blush is?!
The final verdict? This has established a loyal following and cult beauty product status for good reason: it’s amazing. If you need a new blush and aren’t sure what shade to go with, pick up Orgasm and call it good. You’ll look great! And really…couldn’t we all use a good Orgasm on a regular basis?
