Our #8 Beauty Classic: NARS Cosmetics Blush in 'Orgasm'
The Nars Orgasm Blush is a swirl of fine-milled cheek color that delivers "the most natural-looking flush." It is deigned as an illuminator to transform lackluster skin into a luscious complexion. NARS Orgasm can be worn alone or layered together with other products, such as bronzer, for more depth. The super sexy pink flush gives the effect of a radiant afterglow. Available as a traditional blush, as a lipstick, lipgloss, and a multiple stick, the NARS Orgasm shade of blush is one of those classic beauty must haves that is beloved by all women, as it looks great on any skin tone. The versatility of NARS Orgasm to work on any and every woman makes this a must have for your makeup bag.
NARS orgasm blush is the healthy glow and youthful flush women have been searching for since the early 1900′s, before "rouge" was invented, when ladies would pinch their cheeks in the hopes that it would give them that pretty rosy glimmer. The first orgasm product was a simple powdered blush described as "peachy-pink, with accents of golden shimmer." It quickly became insanely popular. Another popular NARS product of note for readers to try is the Multiple, a color in a tube much like a lipstick tube, but larger. The Multiple gets its name from its ability to function as blush, highlighter, or lipcolor. When the multiple came out in orgasm, again, customers flocked to buy it, and it started winning awards from magazines and websites.
NARS Orgasm has received many awards. It was the winner of the 2012 the Women's Health Beauty Awards, winner of InStyle Magazine's Best Powder Blush Award 2008-2012, and winner of InStyle Magazine's Best Blush for Fair and Light Skin Award 2012. It is endorsed my many professional makeup artists and its celebrity fans include Mila Kunis, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jennifer Lopez, and Christina Aguilera. If you haven't used NARS Orgasm yet, this is definitely a makeup must try.
