This week’s ‘My Faves’ product is the now infamous Orgasm Blush from NARS. This has been on the market for quite a few years now and is most definitely a cult favourite among beauty lovers and makeup artists alike.
I’ve been using this blush for so long, but I tend to take a break from it every so often. I hadn’t used it since last year and so last week, I decided it was time to revisit this little old gem. Only when I went to look for it I realised I had none left which never happens to me. Ever! I usually always have one on hand at home for when I need it, so needless to say when I was makeup shopping over the weekend this was first on my list.
The Orgasm shade to me is the perfect blush shade. I would describe it as kind of a peachy pink and it has a gorgeous shimmer finish which gives a lovely glow to the cheek bones. The best thing about the pigment on this blush is that you can wear it very softly with just one light layer, or you can apply multiple layers for a stronger look, and the colour looks equally great with both.
The micronised powder, according to NARS, ensures a soft, blendable application and to be honest, I couldn’t agree more. One quick sweep of the brush and your cheeks are perfectly pink.
I’m sure many of you beauty lovers have used this over the years, it’s a staple product for any makeup bag and hence why it’s number three on my list of all-time favourite products.
If you’re not familiar with it however and fancy giving it a go, it costs €30 and I bought mine in Brown Thomas Dublin.
