On average, I probably wear a full face of makeup (for a full 12 hours) on 3 or 4 days of the week. Between those days, I might have makeup on for a few hours (for shoots or testing) and I might have a low makeup day with just a couple of products.
Well over the last month, there has not been one makeup day that I have not incorporated at least one of the products from the new NARS Orgasm Revamp.
If you have never heard of NARS’ Orgasm Blush it’s an award winning, cult-classic powder blush that skyrocketed NARS into stardom. It is the PERFECT peachy, pink blush with a gold metallic shift that gives you sun kissed ripened cheeks. It’s a rare, lit-from-within shade that works on all skin tones and ALL women can wear.
Over the years, it has been reimagined in various forms (including liquids, highlighters, cream sticks etc) and included in an array of palettes but this new revamp is my absolute favourite.
The newest “Feel the Rush” interpretation claims to indulge the senses in 4 new versions for lips and cheeks. The universally coveted glow now comes in new stimulating textures such as a loose illuminating powder, a lip balm and lip lacquer.
First Up, the original Orgasm Powder Blush is now bigger and better in a limited edition oversized compact with special packaging. It retails for $52 CAD (for 8g of product) versus a normal sized blush for $38 CAD (for 4.8g of product).
Next up, the Illuminating Loose Powder ($35 CAD for 2.5g of product) is such an incredible innovative take on the classic glowing goddess blush. This loose powder can be used as a highlight (mixed with lighter options for pale skin) or as a blush topper.
Shimmery lit powder particles create a soft radiance, blur the look of imperfections, and reflect light off of the skin for a naturally glowing look. The silky soft powders are intensely pigmented so you only need the tiniest bit to accentuate the high points of the face or cover the cheekbone. The glimmering finish is seriously stunning and lasts all day long.

Last, but certainly not least is my favourite piece from the new collection. The Afterglow Lip Balm ($35 CAD for 3g of product) is absolutely bee-autiful. This tinted lip treatment delivers a sheer wash of the universally flattering rose gold shade with a stunning radiant finish. Paired with a beautiful rose gold tube, the sheer peachy pink shade with golden shimmer gives a naturally flushed rosy tone to the lips. I have been wearing it paired with a neutral lip liner for a polished look.
Not only is the effect absolutely gorgeous but it feels amazing on the lips and keeps them nicely hydrated for hours. The formula features Monoï Oil Hydrating Complex for nourishment, smooth comfort and a boost of antioxidants.
The new NARS Orgasm Revamp & Extension is a collection of stunning products that outdid and outperformed my expectations completely. Every single aspect is beyond beautiful and I cannot get enough.
