Since its launch in 1999, NARS Orgasm Blush has been a favorite of women all around the world. The peachy pink blush has earned its keep in our kikay kits because it’s simply universally flattering. On why people have been so obsessed with the color, François Nars explains, “I would have to say the versatility of the color, the sheerness of the texture, and the name! I want to give products a character and an identity. I want people to remember the names and you can’t forget this one.”
And now beauty girls have more reason to obsess over Orgasm since the brand released a new limited edition oversized custom compact! The blush, which was designed in collaboration with Fabien Baron of Baron & Baron, features a special NARS logo, a flirty model visual, and even a “#whatmakesyoublush” etched on the mirror.
While the color may be a little intimidating, Archibald Tolentino, lead makeup artist of NARS Philippines, explains that it’s all in the application. “The usual way to apply it is to use any kind of blush brush for a soft, natural glow. But it is best applied with NARS' Yachiyo Kabuki Brush.” He also adds that we shouldn’t be shy about trying out the shade, because it is universally flattering. “It warms up fair skin tones and brings out the natural golden glow of the skin on medium to dark skin tones,” he says.
To give you an idea, here’s what the new compact looks like beside the original Orgasm:
Talk about supersizing!
The limited edition oversized NARS Orgasm retails for P2,250, and will be available in the Philippines on June 1, 2016 at NARS Rustan’s Makati, Shangri-la, Alabang, Cebu and NARS boutique, Central Square.
