The Limited Edition Orgasm

NARS Orgasm Limited Edition | Beauty Bets

That got your attention, huh? Sorry to say that for today we are only talking about BLUSH. But good to know that nothing is off limits here . . .  NARS Orgasm was first launched in 1999 and ever since has been lauded by makeup artists and beauty editors alike as the blush shade that can be worn by any woman. Except for me. Orgasm (the blush, not the activity) doesn’t look all that hot on me. It’s more peachy than pink, not the flushed, come-hither hue that I was hoping for. And yet, despite numerous attempts I refused to give up on Orgasm (oh god, it just gets better). Especially when NARS came out with this DARLING limited edition packaging. So I tried my hand at Orgasm again and guess what?

Meh. Too tawny for me. And blush, like an orgasm, should never be described as ‘meh’. HOWEVER. I know there are fans out there who will be clamoring for this prettier, larger version of the original so, in the name of free love, I just had to share. Orgasms for all!
