When François Nars created the Orgasm Blush, he “wanted a shade that everyone could wear” — a flattering peachy-pink colour with just the right amount of gold shimmer to leave cheeks perfectly flushed. To this day, the iconic hue remains a foolproof favourite of ours. Since the cheeky blush was first released into the world in 1999, it spawned various spin-off products, including the Orgasm Illuminator, Orgasm Multiple, and of course, our beloved Orgasm Liquid Blush.
This season, NARS is adding a few coveted newbies to their iconic lineup. Behold, the latest Orgasm collection.
In a bid to provide us “with seasonal Orgasms”, the upcoming month will see the launch of a special edition Orgasm Blush, Vinyl Lip Lacquer, an Illuminating Loose Powder, and the anticipated Orgasm Afterglow Lip Balm.
(L-R): Orgasm Afterglow Lip Balm, $40; Orgasm Illuminating Loose Powder, $45
(L-R): Orgasm Full Vinyl Lip Lacquer (Limited Edition), $40 (Available in July); Orgasm Blush (Limited Edition), $50
While the special-edition products will have a limited run, it seems like the Afterglow Lip Balm and Illuminating Powder are joining the family for good. The Afterglow Lip Balm is especially exciting for us because it goes on sheer, giving the lips a translucent wash of pink as it hydrates — the kind of everyday lip colour we all can do with. And of course, we also have the Full Vinyl Lip Lacquer, which coats the lips in a high-shine, non-sticky sheen, as well as the Illuminating Loose Powder, packed with silky light-reflecting pigments that leaves a soft radiant finish.
You need to have one or more of these Orgasms, and that’s why NARS is holding their NARS Meet The Artist: Hands-on Workshop on 2 and 3 June. Led by NARS’ regional Lead Artists, you get to experience the new collection in the two-hour session, learn artistry tips, and discover their top product picks from the range.
Pick up techniques from the 2 NARS Makeup Artists in attendance: NARS Hong Kong Senior Makeup Artist Shirley Wong and NARS Taiwan Senior Makeup Artist Pire Fang.
