After a long long wait to own this super pretty NARS Blush, my prayers were finally answered on my birthday when my hubby got Super Orgasm kit for me trying to chuck down my ever increasing shopping list a bit.
This pretty Peachy Pink blush sits adorably in luxurious NARS matte black packaging giving your eyes those blinks with the overloaded glitter (I hate those!). The glitter flecks are somewhat chunkier but gets dispersed evenly on cheeks giving that golden reflex which looks very pretty. They do travel a bit here & there on cheeks but never makes your face looks like a glitter ball. It also depends on the amount of the glitters your blush brush picks up. It’s better to tap the brush after loading it with colour to shed off those extra glitter flecks. Orgasm is peachier while this lean more towards pink. Also orgasm is not overloaded with glitter as this one. Will be posting a complete detailed review & comparison of both blushes in coming few days.
On my NC 42/44 skin tone the shade looks more of a pink highlighter with strong gold reflex. The more you blend the shade , the shimmers becomes prominent fading the pink .The colour is not much visible for day wear but works great as a night wear shade. I am not much comfortable here for layering the blush to make the shade show up on cheeks because of the glitters which accompany making you look heavily made-up. But this looks super pretty if layered up on other blushes lightly .I liked Orgasm more than this for better colour show up on my skin tone with well-balanced sheen. This is clearly a night wear/ special occasions blush for me. If you have oily skin or lots of open pores, might want to avoid this blush strictly.
The texture of the blush is not satin smooth as other NARS blushes. The big glitter flecks does effect the smooth texture of the blush & one can even feel the comparatively bigger chunks every now & then but overall it’s not something very gritty or disturbing on skin. Pigmentation is quite good but not rich as other NARS Blushes & stays quite intact on my skin till 6-7 hours. If you like glitters in your product & that extra highlighting effect with a slight hint of natural pink on your cheeks, you will like Super Orgasm.
For swatches I have layered the shade & dusted off the glitters.
The shade possesses strong gold reflex due to overdose of glitter flecks which overcomes the actual shade after blending. If layered, looks heavily made up due to prominent glitter. The blush works great when layered slightly over other blushes for subtle highlighting effect. This is best suitable for special occasions. If you like glitters & strong highlighters, you will love Super orgasm.
PS: Due to bad lighting, not able to click the FOTD. Will be posting FOTD’s separately along with the comparison post in coming few days.
