It is surely one of the most iconic makeup products of our time: the NARS Orgasm blush, created by François Nars in 1999 and known as the peachy-pink shade that has managed to be universally flattering, creating that desired natural flush that fits all skin tones. Since then, it has gone on to become the #1 blush in the USA, winning countless beauty awards and sparking product spinoffs that are all inspired by the Orgasm shade (we’re sure you’ve also lusted over the Orgasm Multiple, Orgasm Illuminator, and the Super Orgasm Blush).

Seventeen years might have passed since the launch of the original Orgasm blush, but we’re far, far from being tired of it. In fact, we’re down for having more of it, which makes the launch of this special supersized version of the Orgasm blush this summer just perfect. It’s designed in collaboration with French artistic director Fabien Baron, and features a special edition of the NARS logo on the outside, a summery model visual on the protective film on the inside, and the hashtag #WhatMakesYouBlush etched onto the mirror of the extra-large compact.

NARS Limited Edition Orgasm Blush, $65. Available at TANGS at Tang Plaza, Robinsons The Heeren, and selected Sephora stores.


And, an event to celebrate it is in order: We’re throwing the NARS x NYLON #WhatMakesYouBlush Party, where you’ll get to experience all things Orgasm!

Three NARS Lead Artists from South Korea, Taiwan and Singapore will be there to demonstrate the use of Orgasm on models of three different skin tones, following which we’ll be opening the floor for an “Orgasm marathon”: the Lead Artists will be doing as many cheek makeovers as possible on the guests, so you’ll get to experience firsthand how universally flattering the shade really is.


Here are the event details:

NARS x NYLON #WhatMakesYouBlush Party
