Day 1, Nars Orgasm
"An Orgasm a Day, Keeps the Doctor Away" (Mae West)
This is a blush that often causes a ruckus.
Not because it is named after the elusive big "O" but because the results are often mixed. This blush can either be your holy grail cheek product or an overhyped bust.
When a product is so beloved and raved over, it loses it's cool factor.
It becomes overplayed.
Every magazine commands this to be the one blush you must own.
People prophetize that it will change your life.
I do believe that a lipgloss can lift you out of a slump and a perfume can comfort you like a plate of carbs.
But no blush has managed to change my life.
Nars Orgasm is a pinkish peach shade with gold shimmer. Coverage is buildable even though the blush is densely pigmented. It goes on fairly light with many brushes including the skunk. The shimmer factor is present but subtle. It is named for the fact that it mimics the natural flush after achieving an orgasm. It also looks like you have been sunkissed, well rested, received a good bill of health, paid off your student loans and flirted with a cute boy.
It appears to work well with many skin tones from the uber pale to the olive toned. The blush is more warm than cool, but I have seen superior results on cool toned skin. It really is a blush that needs to tested and worked with.
