Have a Super, duper Orgasm...

I've not really been into doing anything special with my makeup for a while now,  I tend to stick to the same old things. One exception to the monotony is that I am really getting into blush, as my skin is so pale and dull on it's own.

I've notice that I use NARS Super Orgasm a lot, so I thought I'd tell you a little bit about it...


Lets get the main issue out of the way: the pink/peach base of the powder blush is actually the same for both Orgasm and Super Orgasm, even though Super Orgasm does look a bit  duskier in the pan in comparison to the original.

The only real difference between the two Orgasm blushes is that the original Orgasm contains the famous golden shimmery gleam, whilst SUPER ORGASM uses very fine gold glitter particles instead and has no golden glow. The lack of shimmer means that SUPER ORGASM does apply sheerer and pinker on the skin then the original Orgasm does, so it does look different enough to justify buying it.

Most importantly, it wears well - I'll apply it in the morning and it will last until I take it off at the end of the day. NARS is a pricey brand, but the quality is unbeatable.

I personally haven't had any of the fall-out issues with SUPER ORGASM that I did with NARS other glittery cheek product - the Hungry Heart duo, so that's another point in SUPER ORGASMs favour.

Would I recommend it? It depends; SUPER ORGASM and Orgasm are both lovely shades, that are wearable on all skin tones, but for most people I'd say that if you own one shade then you really don't need the other one too. But for my fellow mega NARS fans, then yes, I do recommend SUPER ORGASM; the finishes between the two blushes make the base colour appear noticeably different enough to warrant a purchase.

If you want a sheerer finish, with a touch of sparkle = you are a Super Orgasm girl :)
If you want a glowy finish = the original is best Orgasm for you...
