NARS Liquid Blush in Orgasm

The new NARS Liquid Blushes are DEFINITELY for those of you like me, who think the powder NARS blushes could use a little more oomph. I picked up Orgasm because I LOVE that color in the powder blush form, but always find that I need to layer and layer it to get the intensity I want. Not with this baby!
When I first opened it, I thought it applied like this. Upon further inspection, I noticed that the cap just pulls off and there is a pump underneath.
You really need only the TINIEST bit to get massive color payoff with this. For those who are unfamiliar, Orgasm is their best selling blush - it is a peachy pink with gold shimmer and looks flattering on every single person I've ever seen use it! It's one of those magical works-for-any-skin tone shades.
This tiny dot is all I used for the swatches in the next photo...
The bottom swatch is that dot of product spread out, and the top swatch is what was left on my finger! This stuff is amaaaazing. As you can see, the more you sheer it out, the more that gold comes through.

Now, I am not one who goes for cream or liquid blushes. I always stick to powders. But, when I saw swatches of these I knew I had to try one, and it's become my new favorite. It dries down to a powder finish and lasts all day long, even on my oily skin. It is a bit pricey at $30, but this is going to last such a long time because of the tiny amount you need to use! I love this, and I definitely recommend it to anyone who asks about it!


  1. This is the perfect review, thank you. And thank you mostly for explaining the pump was under the lid! Haha. I thought I was missing a piece until you explained the top pops off.

    1. I'm so glad it was helpful! When I first got it, I was confused too - those types of bottles usually have a twist-off cap so I didn't think to pull it off at first lol!

  2. Thanks a lot ! I thought I didn’t get the pump 🙂
