Blue moon. NARS Orgasm Blush
It goes without saying that I am a bona fide prude. I am the girl who is often found nervously hopping around the gym changing room whilst attempting to change under my towel, and the girl who is still not comfortable with kissing scenes (let alone sex scenes) on the TV regardless of whether the mother in the room or not. So the thought of wearing a blusher called orgasm is slightly out of my comfort zone in spite of its iconic status. Praising be for the invention of online shopping, I decided it was time to hang up my reservations and finally see what all the fuss was about.
This is a blusher that really needs no introduction. With numerous accolades under its belt, this is a small blush that packs a powerful punch.
“Makes cheeks blush a perfect pinky-peach flush and subtly highlights with accents of golden shimmer. This perennially pleasing, universally flattering shade is again and again a makeup artist and beauty editor favourite”.
And now, it has quickly become my favourite and I am kicking myself for not having tried it out earlier.
NARS Orgasm blush is a warm toned pink, with slight golden flecks. When applied to skin, this gives a gentle natural and healthy flush. This can be easily built up for a more dramatic look. Easily blendable, this has remarkable staying power and lasts throughout the day.
I adore this blush – the fuss that surrounds NARS Orgasm blush is entirely justified. I’ve even grown to love the name, although I’m dreading the spam that will follow when orgasm appears in my twitter feed…
