Hellooo and happy Sunday!! I thought I'd try my hand at blogging about something other than nail polish again, so here you go, kids-- LLPT's second ever cosmetics post (if you count bb cream as cosmetics, which I do).
NARS Orgasm blush is one of those benchmark beauty products that always felt like some sort of legend to me, something so widely loved and revered that I couldn't possibly fathom that it would actually work for me (a little like Chanel No. 5, but that's another story, altogether). As much as I desired a blush that gave me that perfect, healthy rosy glow, I did not think the peachy pink Orgasm, named so because of the afterglow it's said to emulate, was going to fit with my pale olive complexion. Long story short, I've been in search of a few new items for a minor fall makeup overhaul, and headed downtown to Sephora-in-Penney a few weeks ago to pick up the tantalizingly named cheek color in the hopes of demystifying it.
The compact itself is black, matte, and rubbery soft to the tough. It's kind of a nice break from the glossy black so many other companies seem to adore. As you can see, I've been using this, because as it turns out... I love it. Orgasm is a peachy blush with golden rose undertones and a gorgeous gold microshimmer that translates as subtle, beautiful, and vital on the skin.
I've never been totally happy with a blush before, let alone felt like it was natural looking enough to wear with minimal makeup everywhere else (I'm wearing my bb cream, mascara on my top lashes, and lip balm). So there you have it. NARS Orgasm blush, iconic for a reason. If you're in the market for a new shade, this is absolutely worth checking out. It's available at Sephora and on NARS Cosmetics website.
Special thanks to my sweet husband for helping me with my face shots. <3
