Hello lovely ladies.
What started out as a quick trip out to get some cat food & some bits for dinner, once again, turned in to a purse battering, or should I say wallet battering as it was a gift from my other half! I've wanted this particular item for months and months and I think it was a case of if I buy it she will stop talking about it!
My new, no prizes for guessing which one, blush. The plastic is sleek black matte and even the box it came it feels expensive! So, had a guess which blush this is yet?
That's right, it's Orgasm. Oh NARS & your naughty names, cue an awkwardly asking the sales assistant " I think I'll go for an Orgasm please" to which I stuttered "Orgasm Blush, BLUSH!" to which she replied with "this happens all the time" and told me of a time a lady came in with her boyfriend and asked him very loudly if he preferred Deep Throat to Orgasm. Oh NARS...!
Another element of the blush packaging I really like is the nice big mirror in the lid, perfect for when your handheld mirror has escaped your clutches and hidden in that special place that only things you really need have hidden. Orgasm is described as a peachy pink colour with golden shimmer. In the pan it looks more peachy matte than shimmery, so on to the swatches!
Swirled on the finger you can already see the golden shimmer shining through.
Applied to the back on my hand with a brush the shimmer is definitely there, a long with the peach tone base colour. When I was talking to the sales assistant she was telling me that the reason that Orgasm has reached the cult status is because it suits every one, the peach suits all skin types and the golden shimmer helps to warm to blusher up. She also told me because of it's cult status they sell 1 Orgasm every 3 seconds which is a little nuts!
To me, it is the holy grail of blushers, I've tried the dupes of this, including Sleeks Rose Gold, and I still really wanted the NARS. The colour is just perfect, and I can see this being a very expensive favourite!
