My thoughts on Nars Orgasm

The only blusher I have hit the pan on in my entire life is Nars Orgasm and even if I do not think it is perfect and I have got tonnes of other blushers, here is the reason why I keep going back to it... 

Nars Orgasm

First of all I love how Nars Orgasm is peachy without being orange and pink without being 'dollyish'.

I also like the fact that it is sheer and therefore easy, almost foolproof to apply.

You can build it up to give your cheeks a more intense, but still natural flush, at least in term of colour intensity, even though you can go a bit overboard with the shimmery effect.

The shimmer in this blusher imparts a wonderful glow from within when applied in the right amout. If you go overboard with the shimmer just blend it with setting powder.

On darker skin tones it works like a face illuminator.

Tips on how to wear Nars Orgasm: in my opinion it works best applied on the high point of your cheekbone rather then on the apple of the cheek, because of the shimmer and it looks beautiful worn on top of bronzer.

If you fancy something more pigmented and less shimmery try Nars Deep Throat, which needs applying with a lighter hand though.
