I’ll admit it, I’ve always had a love-hate relationship with NARS Orgasm.
On one hand, this is THE blush. It’s a cult favorite. It’s the ‘it blush’ in every girl’s stash. Francois Nars created magic when he created NARS Orgasm.
On the other hand, I’ve always had a personal application issue with the blush. It’s something about my skin tone that makes this blush NOT show up on my skin. Luckily for me, NARS expanded the Orgasm series by adding a multiple, and Super Orgasm blush, which contains more shimmer but is better suited for my skin.
When François Nars launched his iconic blush in 1999, it created a massive sensation that climaxed in numerous spin-off products, countless awards, and its designation as the #1-selling blush in the United States. Now—because you can never have too much of a good thing—the original blush is being offered in a limited-edition oversized custom compact.
Designed in collaboration with Fabien Baron of Baron & Baron, the supersized compact features a special NARS logo, flirty model visual and a playful #whatmakesyoublush hashtag etched on the mirror (see below).
Everything else you’ve come to know and love about the blush is the same. All the way down to the pigmentation and tones.
Special Edition Orgasm Blush is available for $39 May 1, 2016, exclusively at NARS Boutiques and narscosmetics.com, then June 1, 2016, at Sephora, department, and specialty stores.
