My Nars 0rgasm collection

September 19, 2011

This post has a mix of everything – I initially only wanted to show you the swatches of my Nars 0rgasm Collection. While taking swatch pictures of them, surprisingly my eye makeup of the day turned out really nice and sharp in the pictures thanks to the good lighting, so I like to share both with you.

Nars O blush was my first high end blush. To be honest I wasn’t that smitten with the shade at that time, as I thought it was just an ordinary peachy pink blush. As my makeup collection starts to build up and I have a wider range of colors to play with, I am becoming more fond of this shade. It is just a very easy-to-work-with shade and is flattering with almost any makeup look. It contains the right amount of shimmer which makes the finish neither too flat nor too shimmery – I do agree that it gives an O-glow as per the name haha. For a person like me who sleeps in almost every morning, there is nothing more convenient than a “no-brainer” shade.

nars-blushesI have already reviewed and compared the blush from the trio palette with the original blush, which you can find here.

I bought the Nars multiple 0rgasm after I came across a youtube clip of a professional MUA applying this nars on a gorgeous eurasian model. (sorry I can’t find the link as it was from a long time ago). I gasped when I saw the finish on her – it just looked soo beautiful. It is more pink with a more dewy finish compared to the original blush.

Nars Super O is a lovely peachy pink lipgloss, and again it is more on the pink side. Although it contains shimmers it applies smoothly and does not feel grainy on the lips.

Group swatch: Except for the original blush, the rest all have a stronger pinkish undertone.

FOTD: Foundation was the Nars Sheer Matte. I had Nars Multiple O on my cheeks and the Nars Super O lipgloss on my lips.

On my eyes I used a mix of Nars eyeshadows: Nars Isolde over the lid and Nars Surabaya along the lash line with Nars Brumes on the outer v.

nars-eotdWhat is your favorite Nars O product? I am thinking to get the Nars O illumator..any thoughts?

Amazing look Reika! You look divine.
I am a huge fan of the NARS range, big fan of the multiple sticks and theyre really great for contouring. I’ve heard wonderful things about the illuminators, but haven’t invested just yet. Must try it soon!

Wonderful post :) xo

I really like the Nars combo on your eyes, beautifully sultry. And I love how the Multiple gives you a natural flushed appearance.

I just googled the Nars Org Illuminator and it swatches so nice! I like the finish of liquid illuminators. =)

I only have the Orgasm blush and I absolutely hated it at first because it looked muddy on me for some reason. Maybe I was too pale then I don’t know. Now, I kind of grown to like it and I’ve been using it quite a bit lately.
Funny how it looks different in the trio. Maybe I should get that. It looks pretty! :)
Your FOTD is gorgeous as well! xx

So pretty! Yes, you need the illuminator! It’s really lovely, I find myself using it daily.

After reading your post I must pop into Mecca soon. I have to admit I never got into the whole Nars Orgasm range, I have only ever tried their primer which I adore. Your eye make up is perfect! Love the colours and it suits you so well.

I absolutely adore your eotd here! Is mysterious and glowy at the same time. I think I’m going to try it out :)

The nars o swatches were so helpful. I only have the illuminator and the regular blush, but they both have been used heavily in my rotation. I think I may have to round out my collection with the multiple, the gloss, and the polish eventually. They’re all beautiful in their own ways even if they’re not all the exact same color. I particularly like how the multiple has pinker tones.

Stunning look! I don’t own any of the Orgasm products but that illuminator is calling my name, stunning!

I’d set my sights on the Multiple instead of the blush, but most of the YT videos I came across had failed to impress me. Same goes for the Illuminator.

Your eye makeup gave a different vibe about you. Very mystique, compared with your other looks (:

Oh wow, you’ve totally made me want to rekindle my love with Orgasm! I’ve forgotten about my Orgasm blush :-P Thanks for a great post, your blog is lovely :)
