Does anyone else have a collection of goodies that they tend to use at a certain time of year? I do. I have nail varnishes I save for Christmas and certain make up bits that I save for Summer, mainly the NARS Orgasm range. As Summer reminds me of glowing tans and beachy wavy hair, with iridescent shimmers of gold and coral highlighting my skin, the NARS Orgasm collection is just perfect for enhancing and highlighting your complexion and body. The Orgasm colour started off with the iconic blush and quickly expanded into a range featuring the Multiple, Illuminator, nail varnish and the lip gloss. The colour of Orgasm would be described as a pinky peach with rose gold shimmer although it slightly differs across the range, for example, the blush is more pink whereas the lipgloss is more golden pink. I would hazard a guess that most beauty lovers either own or lust after an item from the Orgasm collection. I am totally loving my Nars Orgasm Lip Gloss
The lipgloss is a beautiful colour and can be worn either alone or over the top of a lipstick for a pop of glossiness. Although the colour looks opaque in the tube, once applied it is quite sheer. It doesn’t have much of a colour once applied to the lips, just a hint of a tint of rose with gold shimmer particles suspended in the gloss. A doe foot applicator is used in the lip gloss compared to the Larger Than Life lipglosses which use a brush. I find that I can’t get a great deal of gloss on the applicator and have to dip back in the tube a few times to adequately coat my lips.
One thing I have noticed about NARS lip glosses is their fantastic ability to remain non sticky without drying out on your lips. Once the gloss does start to fade, the shimmer is still left on your lips and even more so whilst being worn over lipstick. The only thing I have to be particular about is the scent of the product. Although unscented, I get a whiff of plastic from the tube which isn’t very nice.
NARS Orgasm Lip Gloss does get a thumbs up from me. Its perfect for summer and when combined with a tan, it looks just amazing. I can’t wait until the weather perks up so I can start bringing out those summer products I have been saving! NARS is available at Selfridges, with the lipgloss priced at £18.50.
