Review: NARS Orgasm blusher
I probably should have tried a NARS product a long time ago! Even my grandmother has been using NARS blusher longer than me! However, after far too long, I decided to venture out and start with the mega-hyped Orgasm powder blush. Luckily for me, I mentioned this on Twitter and Marvelle mentioned that she'd only used hers twice and was looking to sell it. We traded a Bloggers' Halloween Party ticket for the blusher.
I was so impressed with the packaging. It's a matte, almost velvety finish with a secure snap closure. It's very thin so it takes up next to no space in a make up bag and there's a mirror inside the case, which is always handy!
On application, it's immediately clear that the pigmentation is crazy! Now, I like a heavy application of blusher but this is insane! It definitely requires a light touch. Very impressive! It has a deep coral-peach tone which is very different to my usual pink cheeks, but I like it. In the light, it has a golden-bronze shimmer to it.
It lasts all day on me, which is unusual for a blusher. I don't know what it is about my cheeks but blushers normally fade so quickly on me. Maybe it's because they're so round and apple-like. Anyway, the point is, this is a great blush. I'm not sure if it's entirely worth the hype but it's a nice everday product nonetheless.
