Nars has launched Orgasm X Collection. I am so excited to share the newest additions to the Orgasm Collection or I should say the extended Orgasm Collection called Orgasm X Collection. The performance, formula, and pigments of Nars powder formula’s have always met my expectations. I can safely say that the more I have tried and used from Nars, the more I like the products. My personal experience is that Nars powder formulas and pigments are one of the best and there is consistency in everything they launch – the formulas are of superior quality and unique shades. The formulas are buildable, easily blendable, and much loved. Coming back to the newest launches.

Nars Orgasm X Collection is all about the deeply flattering pink shade that suits all skin tones and it is not just the name, but the shade that makes you blush. I have reviewed the past Nars Orgasm launches here and here for your reference. Nars Orgasm X Collection consists of Orgasm X Blush (swatched in this post), Orgasm X Cheek Palette (reviewed and swatched in this post), Orgasm Quad Eyeshadows in 2 shades(reviewed and swatched in this post), Oil-infused Lip Tint (reviewed and swatched in shade Orgasm X), Mini Orgasm Eyeshadow palette, Ultimate Orgasm Set.

Orgasm X Cheek Palette is a limited ediiton cheek palette with 3 universally flattering shades. It features the new Orgasm X Blush and the cult-favourite Orgasm Blush, plus Orgasm Highlighting Powder. The formula is very smooth and creamy, applies and blends well into the skin. The powder formulas are very pigmented and the shades are so beautiful, definitely, I can see it suiting most of the skin tones.

Below are the shades with description:

Orgasm Highlighting Powder – golden shimmer

Orgasm Blush – peachy pink with golden shimmer

Orgasm X Blush – shimmering deep coral pink with gold pearl

If you have used Orgasm blush in the past, the new Orgasm X is a little deep and has more shimmer compared to the original one. The gold highlighter is beautiful, looks very natural on the skin and is buildable to give an intense look. I do prefer a light hand on all three as the formula is very pigmented. The longevity is pretty good, it stays put all day. I have noticed a little fall out from the shimmer shades but is totally manageable by tapping the excess off the brush while applying – no other issues.

Oil-infused Lip Tint – Orgasm X

Oil-infused Lip Tint is a lip-oil tint that delivers a sheer wash of colour and a moisturizing feel to the lips. The formula is lightweight, non-greasy and is very comfortable on the lips. I reviewed the same formula in the post for Bronzing Collection 2020 here. I am still loving it and so happy to have this shade in my collection. Oil-infused Lip Tint in Orgasm X is a limited edition shade and is a sheer shimmering deep coral with gold pearl.

Nars has launched the ultimate collection for summer this year with some new launches and some new additions to the iconic Bronzing powder range. From the summer launches, I do expect the summer products to wear effortlessly, build weightlessly, and bronze endlessly. This collection is an answer to all you need to survive the summer this year. The Iconic Nars Bronzing Powder has new shades, new packaging, and new matte formula which delivers the same qualities and look of the cult-favourite bronzer but in a matte finish. From the collection, I have been testing the Bronzing Powder, Matte Bronzing Powder, Paradise Found Bronzing Powder, and Oil-Infused Lip Tints.

Nars Bronzing Powder is a finely milled, diffused-powder, with golden shimmer that creates a warmth over the area it is applied to – works beautifully to contour or define the face. It does not emphasize the pores or lines on the skin but blurs them out while making the complexion look even. The formula is buildable. The finish is very natural and does not look ashy or chalky on the skin. The new sleek compact packaging is very easy to hold, use, and store – weather on the go or on the vanity. There are two new shades available in this bronzing powder – San Juan and Punta Cana – I have swatched them both below.

San Juan is a diffused light bronze with golden shimmer

Punta Cana is a diffused rich mahogany brown powder with golden shimmer

Nars Matte Bronzing Powder is a silky lightweight formula that delivers a natural warmth to the skin – can be used to contour the face or define it – with a matte finish. The formula is very comfortable, does not feels or looks dry on the skin, with nice longevity. I have swatched shade Laguna in the picture below. Laguna is a matte warm brown and is perfect for my medium skin with golden undertones to give a natural yet noticeable warmth to the skin.

Nars Paradise Found Bronzing Powder is an oversized compact of the cult-classic Laguna Bronzer shade designed with an exclusive shimmer sand-wave design. It is scented with Nars signature French Polynesian Monoi de Tahiti oils which smell so unique and luxurious. The formula is lightweight and silky, glides on the skin easily and blends like a dream. The diffused brown powder with exclusive shimmer sand-wave design is a must-have from the collection. The shimmer is only on the lower part of the design and does fade after a few uses. You are left with the iconic Laguna bronzer in an oversized limited edition compact once the shimmer is gone. If you prefer, you can remove the shimmer with soft brush strokes over it.

Nars Oil-Infused Lip Tint is a smooth lightweight formula that glides on lips evenly without a greasy look and feel. The formula is nourishing, softening, and is comfortable to wear. It is available in two limited-shades – Laguna and Reef. I have swatched the shade Reef which is a sheer mauve shimmer.

The Nars Bronzing Powder is a favourite of mine and this collection launches new finish and new shades for the same – highly recommend you to check it out. Nars The Bronzing Collection is available Sephora.ca, NordstromHudson’s Bay, and Shoppersdrugmart.ca and beautyBoutique by Shoppers Drug Mart.

The application is easy – applies well both with a finger or with flat kabuki brush.
