Review: NARS Super Orgasm

NARS blush in Super Orgasm has to be the best blush in my collection. It is amazing. Obviously the name is a little risque, or a lot. NARS is notorious for their naughty names. I do purchase the majority of my make-up, however this blush was a gift from my boyfriend. I was telling him all about it and how much I admired it and he remembered and got it for me for my 17th birthday. He knew I would have never gotten the blush for myself, but I might have to get more NARS blushed now. Thank-you baby (: I've been wearing it everyday since. I even cleaned the packaging of the blush for these pictures.

 There is a whole Orgasm Collection by NARS. The original blush has a nice golden sheen and this blush has gold chunks of glitters. Most reviews I hear of Super Orgasm is you either love it or you hate it. I will get into that later, but first I will give you a little back round on this blush and NARS blushes in general from the Website.

The ultimate authority in blush, NARS offers the industry's most iconic shades for cheeks. Natural, healthy-looking color that immediately enlivens the complexion. A light application of even the highest-intensity hues delivers a natural-looking flush.
* Silky texture in matte and shimmering shades * Micronized powder ensures soft, blendable application
* Iconic NARS shades

Now how Francois created the blush "When I created Orgasm Blush, I came up with the name first then created the color. I wanted something a bit audacious."

So, Orgasm came before Super Orgasm, and this post is going to have super dirty sayings though out it. Mind out of gutter- now. Major difference is golden sheen VS Gold Glitters. Some people say the glitters are super chunky and they look like a glitter ball when it is applied. I haven't found that at all, yes I do get glitter on my face but it's only a couple specs here and there. As long as you tap your brush off(like you should do ALWAYS) you will have no problem with excessive amounts of glitter.

It is a very pigmented blush. I don't have to dig my brush in there when picking up product. I've been using this product for more or less eight months and I don't have a dent in it at all. Every once in a while I will use a different blush, like two or three times a month, but for the most part this is my only blush I use daily. If you swatch in Sephora this blush is actually more pigmented in color than the original.

Majority of skin tones can wear this blush. It is a huge cult favorite(cult, as in beauty community). On really dark skin tone I am not so sure, you have to get it applied in store. This blush gives a very nice glow and natural look flush cheeks. It's just the perfect everyday blush. I don't own the original, but I have tried it on in stores multiple times deciding whether or not I liked it better than Super. It is all personal preference. Would you rather have a gold sheen or gold glitter. The glitter isn't even bad. It is in my opinion fine not chunky like a lot of people describe it to be.

I say if you are going to invest in a blush NARS is the way to go. It is another Holy Grail product of mine. They have the naughtiest names EVER! Like deep throat, sex appeal, desire. So Beware- Haha. They are beautiful blushes, and I heard nothing but good things about all of them. They are a little bit pricey thought at $28. Totally worth it though!
