Welcome to day six of
"Week of Reviews"
Here is a brief intro:
I am going to do a review everyday for a week on different types of
products, ranging from foundation to lip gloss... I hardly do reviews and I
want to start doing quite a bit more. All of the products featured on this
series will be purchased by me with my own money and of course
all of my thoughts will be completely honest.
I love introducing my readers to new products and I think that
the best reviews are those that are short and to the point,
which is what I will attempt to do.... There is no need to fluff
up something with a lot of words! :)
Todays Product is
Nars Orgasm Blush
Where Can It Be Purchased: Sephora, Sephora.com, Nars.com
and anywhere Nars is sold
Peachy pink with gold shimmer.
(from Sephora site)
The Nars packaging is pretty much a signature look that I am
sure all of you know about, the compact itself is made out of
a black rubbery material and is prone to getting dirty fast. The
Nars logo is imprinted in white alone the front and there is a mirror inside.
I feel that the rubbery packaging does help the blush stay safe because
it kind of breaks the fall if you drop it.
I kind of feel as if the description for Orgasm is a bit off,
I feel that the color leans more to being a pink than a peach. This blush
has become a cult favorite and it has been made into a lipgloss, nail polish, and
skin illuminator and ITS FOR A REASON. The subtle gold
shimmer throughout this blush is so flattering to all skin tones ranging
from fair to dark. It instantly warms up the face and provides a sort of depth
that other blushes do not add. Compared to other blushes
that Nars offers I feel that Orgasm has a sheerness which is not found
a lot in Nars' loud blushes. The blush is soft and smooth and picks up easily
onto a brush. It also blends effortlessly into the skin without almost any
blending effort needed from you. The shimmer is also
so fine that it does not make you look like a glitter ball,
ALWAYS A PLUS :)
Gives Amazing Sheen
Sheer (must be built up for intensity)
Product You Get (4.8 g compared to MAC 6 g)
this swatch was taken from Temptalia.com because my
camera was not letting me take good pictures of it :(
I am very happy I purchased this blush, it has been
my go to blush all summer and if you are willing to spend
the money definitely purchase it!
