Worth the Hype Wednesday – NARS Cosmetics Liquid Blush in Orgasm

June 1, 2022

I love blush, but liquid blush was something I hadn’t dabbled in too much. Then, the @narsissist Liquid Blush in Orgasm ($30 for .5 ounces – went viral and it looked so amazing on everyone I saw try it out, so I picked it up during the @sephora Spring Savings Event to test it for myself!

What it claims:
🔘 Effortlessly glides on skin for a lasting, natural-looking glow
🔘 A uniquely buildable and blendable formula allows you to create your perfect cheek color by using anywhere from one drop to a full pump
🔘 Includes Monoï and Tamanu oils, known for adding extra moisture and resilience
🔘 Free of parabens, formaldehydes, formaldehyde-releasing agents, phthalates, mineral oil, retinyl palmitate, oxybenzone, coal tar, hydroquinone, sulfates SLS & SLES, triclocarban, triclosan, and contains less than one percent synthetic fragrance
🔘 Gluten-free

My verdict?
There are a few things I like about this product – the blendability, the amount of pigmentation, and how long it lasts. Unfortunately, there are also a couple of things I don’t like about this product – the packaging (I have never not wasted product because too much comes out when even just lightly applying pressure to the pump), and the shade (I just don’t know if it’s as flattering on me as other blush shades I own). For some reason, I am just not as wowed as everyone else seemed to be. I will enjoy using this until the jar is empty (which will take a while because a little goes a long way), but won’t repurchase – at least not in this shade.

FYI, I receive a small commission when you shop via the link listed above. There is no additional cost to you, but it supports me and my blog and I greatly appreciate it!
