Super Orgasm by NARS

I think there are some cult classics in the beauty world that we’ve all heard about (and in some cases completely relied on) over the years; things like Urban Decays Primer Potion, YSLs Touche Eclat Highlighting pen and Elizabeth Ardens 8 hour cream all spring to mind… Another one that I see mentioned all the time in beauty blogs, magazines and makeup videos is Orgasm by NARS

After lusting after it for about, ooooh, a century or so, I finally decided to treat myself and picked it up from my local SpaceNK. I’m pleased to say that I really like it, although after all the hype I don’t think it was ever gonna completely live up to my impossibly high expectations!
Super Orgasm
Anywho, a friend of mine then bought me a gorgeous NARS gift set which included a blush in the shade Super Orgasm. Oh. My. Goodness. I adore this, honestly I’ve found it to be one of the prettiest, most wearable shades ever and it always guarantees a compliment or two (admittedly from my mum and kid sister but they totally count! :p)

The regular Orgasm is a beautiful peachy pink with shimmer whereas the Super Orgasm has gold glitter, which may sound really tacky and OTT but it actually manages to look gorgeous on. As with all NARS blushes in comes in one of the rather annoying dirty-finger-print-attracting-rubber-like compacts which has a good sized mirror. The texture is far finer that it looks at first glance and so far I’ve enjoyed this more every time I’ve used it. Don’t you just love it when that happens? ♥

With such a name one can only like it, isn't that so?
I can't really afford cosmetics from great brands like this one (although if I bought less "less expensive" make-up, I could ^^), but I chose to buy Sleek's Rose Gold blush, which is said to be a very close dupe of the Orgasm, and I fell in love with those golden peachy tones! :)

Hey that is great to hear. I was debating between the orgasm and the super orgasm and decided to go with orgasm because the of the gold specks in super orgasm. Maybe next time will buy this one.

I've got my first NARS blush about a month back and I absolutely adore it they are amazing! :) Super Orgasm may be sth I'll try in the future! :)

Bibi said...

Sure compliments from your Mum and sister count. Mine are my worst critics, compliments happen very rarely TT
I've heard a lot of good about Orgasm. It's great you finally got one to add to your make up collection! I love it when a product works even better than you thought it would... :)

This looks gorgeous, such a pretty shade. x

Leslie said...

Nars Super Orgasm is my fave blush! I ordered it from Sephora about a month ago and I fell in love with it instantly. You are right about the glitter - it looks classy and not a bit over the top! It's worth every penny and I will def rebuy!

♥ Stacey ♥ said...

I've never even heard of Super Orgasm! I'm still trying to find Rose Gold blush by Sleek, they're always sold out! x

Katie said...

I've never used orgasm blusher but my sister has it so I might have to pinch it and try :). Love the look and sound of the 'super orgasm'...

Ooh I didn't know Nars did this shade. I have heard a lot about the original and have always been tempted but never purchased. Looks gorgeous.

Lolaa it’s so odd that you mention that cos I had an unopened Sleek blush lying in my drawer for ages and tried it for the first time recently and it’s amazing! I’ve always adored the Sleek eyeshadows so I’m pleased to see the blushes are a good (Rose Gold is now on my shopping list!)

FunnyFaceBeauty – will do! Just need a day where I’m at home whilst it’s still light out. Oh how I long for summer!

Bibi same here! There have been product I’ve wanted for months and months so my expectations are incredibly high – it’s always great when they’re actually as good as you’ve been hoping :)

Leslie I reckon classy is the perfect word to describe it! I think people could definitely be put off by the glitter but I bet most people would love it if they tried it ♥

♥ Stacey ♥ every time I called into my local superdrug they’d sold out of all the Sleek blushes. Honestly, every single one! I ended up asking the girl when the’d be getting new stock and called in at about 10am that morning just to get my hands on them. Totally worth it though!

Emma I couldn’t agree more. I don’t really see the point of the packaging, I mean if it looked gorgeous I’d understand why they use it but it just seems more annoying than anything else :)
