Nars Orgasm Blush is the original universally flattering shade in limited edition size and packaging. This best-selling, most iconic shade for cheeks delivers healthy-looking colour that immediately enlivens the complexion and provides a natural-looking blush effect that flatters any skin tone. The translucent, natural tones, each with a subtle pink for a natural-looking blush undertone to highlight the complexion. The blush has a silky, superfine micronized powder pigments in matte and shimmering shades to ensure irresistibly soft, blendable application. A light application of even the highest-intensity hues delivers a natural-looking flush. The formula is buildable and delivers an ultra-sheer to powerful pops of colour. The blush has been in my makeup routine since last three or four years and it looks amazing on my medium tan skin tone. It gives so beautiful pretty pink glow on the skin. The longevity is also good.

The shades include

Orgasm Ecstacy – Soft beige with gold pearl

Deep Orgasm – Metallic mauve

Super Orgasm – Iridescent pink with golden shimmer

Double Orgasm – Iridescent pink lilac with silver shimmer

Orgasm Fever – Iridescent copper

Orgasm – Metallic rose gold

The lightweight creamy formula is so easy to work with, so soft and blends effortlessly. The shades work pretty well, both on the cheeks and on the eyes. On cheeks, they work as a highlighter and blush depending on the shade. The shades in the palette are suitable for all skin tones. One swipe of the formula fives a subtle hint of color with dewy finish. The formula is buildable from sheer to medium. I am so loving this trying different shade every day from the palette. I do prefer to set the formula with a powder to elongate its wear time on my combination skin. The glow is definitely real, very dewy. On my oily lids, I use a eye primer to make it last longer. For a single color swipe on my lids, I do not drag it till the fold as my oily lids leave a crease pretty soon otherwise. But with the dewy finish I get from this formula, I am all in to carry a pressed powder with me. For dry skins, you will not to worry about a setting powder though.

Nars Oil-infused Lip Tint is a sheer lip oil-tint in the universally flattering orgasm shade. This new Orgasm Oil-Infused Lip Tint adds sheer sensation and a surge of hydration for seductively plush lips with a hint of tint. This oil-tint applies clear on the lips but adjusts to a very pretty pink within 2-3 minutes. The tint has a very slight gold shimmer. It feels very hydrating without feeling like it’s going to slide off the lips or any sticky feeling.

Nars Exposed Cheek Palette, Explicit Color Lip Duo

Exposed Cheek Palette has six universally flattering shades with sheer-to-buildable coverage. The palette has a beautiful collection of luminous neutral and bright shades which will look beautiful on all skin tones, just a little different on how it shows on different skin tones.

The formula is lightweight, applies smoothly, and blends in easily. The formula is pigmented, I would recommend starting with a light hand then build it as per the finish needed. The shades and formula do not look flat but vibrant and fresh on the skin. The formula can also be worked as dry or wet, based on how intense finish you need. The finish is satiny radiant fresh complexion with a hint of colour.

Nars Exposed Cheek Palette, Explicit Color Lip Duo

Explicit Color Lip Duo is a limited edition mini lip duo featuring Velvet Matte Lip Pencil and Glossy Lip Tint. I love Velvet Matte Lip Pencil formula in general and do have few shades in my bag, they are comfortable to wear, the formula is quite pigmented and good staying time.

Glossy Lip Tint is something I have not tried before, it feels like a glossy tinted lip balm which is sheer and compliments pretty well over the velvet matte lip pencil. The duos have one to one match of shades, means there are three ways the duos can be used, each alone or together. The lip duos in pink, nude and red schemes featuring classic shades Sex Machine, Intriguing and Dragon Girl.

Sex Machine – Pink Mauve

Intriguing – Rose Pink

Dragon Girl – Vivid Siren Red

One of the best things of trying new products and writing about them is that as time passes, you naturally start looking at products with few of your top expectations from that product based on its category like face, lips, eyes. For me, base makeup is the most important step, similar to my other love of life, painting, where I have to create the perfect base on the canvas in order for the other products to sit and mix in well for the whole painting to look good and for that creation to stay longer. Similarly, for the makeup, the foundation is an important part of any makeup user as it can either make your day or break it. A foundation that looks cakey, emphasize your concerns on the face, not suitable to your needs of the finished look, does not feel comfortable – no one will like it. I have been using the Nars Sheer Glow Foundation for the last few days.

Nars Sheer Glow Foundation

My expectation in regards to the finish of the foundation is always radiant and dewy, so from the name of the foundation – the word ‘glow’ did caught my eye the first. I was curious to try and see how the longevity, performance, and finish of it looks on me.

Nars Sheer Glow Foundation

Nars Sheer Glow Foundation is described as a sheer, buildable foundation with a natural-looking finish. The foundation is very lightweight and glides on nicely onto the skin, blends easily and is buildable from sheer to medium coverage. The finish looks very natural and radiant without looking or feeling heavy or cakey. It did not emphasize my dry areas of the phase neither it made my oily areas oilier. The longevity is good, stayed on well for over 8 hours for which I tested. I did not do any touch-ups during the days I tested it. It did not emphasize the pores or my problem areas and acne. The good thing is that is available in a wide range – 40 shades for all skin types. Another thing I have noticed is that for me, it works great when my skin is behaving well or when I do not have many dark spots from previous pimples to conceal. This would also be not a concern as a concealer can be used specifically for the problem areas. Overall, a nice foundation.

As mentioned here and on my Instagram a few times, Nars Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation has been on my top list for over a year and I still love it. If you ask me to compare between the two, Nars Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation provides more coverage, looks more radiant, and longevity is amazing though it is not as lightweight as this sheer glow.

Nars Sheer Glow Foundation and Natural Longwear Radiant Foundation

I have swatches both the foundations that match with my medium skin tone with golden undertones, Sheer Glow is a little less warmer than Radiant Longwear but I can make them both work for me (never stop experimenting and mixing products).

Nars Foundations are available at Sephora, Sephora Canada, Hudson’s BayLookfantasticNordstrom, Saks, and Neiman Marcus.
