Mmm indeed just turned Spring and on to Summer so soon NARS? Oh well we lurve you anyway!
It’s not my favorite collection from NARS but even I get deny that the colors look very nice and I’m particularly impressed with all that gorgeous shimmering blue on the promo image!
Oooo Tropic! Wanna be friends? Tropic is a gorgeous ocean teal with silver shimmer obviously Muse Approve for purchase before I even get my hands on it. Pretties!
Lovely apricot and radiant orange make up NARS Scorching Sun Shadow Duo. Mimics a burning sun dontcha know! Perfect for Summer eh?
NARS Irresistiblement Bronzing Powder is a rich terracotta to give skin the glow of a healthy tan!
NARS Lipstick in Outsider and Falaba give a kiss of Summer to lips with coral and rose shades! Likey Outsider and wants it for myself!
NARS Belize Lip Gloss offers a shade of pink mauve to lips to contrast that beautiful tan you’ll be sporting this Summer!
Can’t even begin to tell you how much I adore Adelita Nail Polish! Not much of nail girl but I can be tempted by this peachy pink shade!
Overall, I’d say NARS has a nice little line up for Summer. I’m wanting Tropic Eyeshadow, Scorching Sun Duo, and possibly Outsider Lipstick.

Pitting NARS Super Orgasm against Benefit Coralista could cause for an interesting fight dontcha think?
Some fans of both are fond of saying how similar the two are but the question is if NARS Super Orgasm went up against Benefit Coralista who would win?
Jump ahead to find out!
Let the Beauty Battle begin!!!!!!!
Now NARS Super Orgasm is considerably more pricey when compared to it’s contender. Coralista is 0.42oz and has a $28 USD price tag. That’s nearly double the product for $3 USD more. Uh oh NARS, Benefit could be beating you out when it comes to price and size.
I hear tales of woe when it comes to Super Orgasm how glittery and shimmery it is, what a mess it is, etc…but the Muse thinks these are all blasphemy! Super Orgasm is much more pigmented when compared to it’s sister color, Orgasm. And yes it does have a whole lot of shimmer going on and chunks of gold glitter however it blends out to a nice satin finish minus any crazy shimmer. The shade is a glowing peach that’s simply stunning to say the very least! Uh oh Coalista look out Super Orgasm is creeping up on you here!
Now Coralista is undoubtedly the better deal of the two products. Nearly double the size of Super Orgasm with a price tag of merely $3 USD more makes it a considerably better option when it comes the quantity but what about quality?
Smelling like a sweet tropical peach sporting some seriously cute packaging and having amazing color pay off all make Benefit Coralista an incredible blush! The Muse is fond of telling everyone and anyone that will listen that it’s one of Benefit’s crowning jewels! Truly a great powder.
And the fight begins…..
NARS Super Orgasm starts off with a pop of peach, a hefty price tag, but little weight to back itself up! Benefit Coralista throws the first punch with a crazy peachy finish, a price tag to please, and enough weight to sink a heavy punch into Super Orgasm’s face!
And the winner is….
Oh please jebus don’t make me choose between two of my very favorite blushes! Ugh it’s so hard!
It’s difficult to choose between these two incredible products! Both are simply amazing to say the least but if I’m honest with myself Benefit Coralista has the better color pay off, the most bang for my buck, plus who can resist a blush scented like a tropical peach? Actually in the end the peach scent threw the fight and made Benefit Coralista our winner!
So tell me….
Who’s your winner?
Is NARS Super Orgasm the best girl for the job?
Or do you favor Benefit Coralista?

NARS Spring Collection 2009 had my heart pounding in excitement and I was quite hyper to get my greedy hands all over it!
I have a few pieces of the collection to share with you today and I can’t wait to hear what you think of this exciting Spring Collection!
Jump ahead to read my impressions, see photos, and swatches of NARS Spring ’09!
I should mention that above anything else I’m really, really, really want to try out the new NARS Duo Concealer in a major way. Hopefully I’ll bring you a review of that soon.
Today I have NARS Eyeshadow Duo in Hula Hula to show you and two of the new NARS Single Shadows in Night Sun and Baby Girl. I haven’t yet had a chance to do FOTD’s with these and normally, you know the Muse, I like to include my FOTD’s with all my reviews but I was so excited to finally have pieces from NARS Spring 2009 in my hands that I just felt like sharing right away. I’ll work on FOTD’s soon so expect them to be posted sometime next week.
The new NARS Eyeshadow Duo in Hula Hula is, in my opinion, the best of the two new duos released. It has two shades of shimmering shadow that will make up a rather nice, natural bronzy pink look. I’ll use Sephora’s description for the two shades as they made it sound heavenly. The first shade in the duo is a frosty strawberry with fine gold shimmer (yum right?) and the second is a hazelnut with golden shimmer. The two shadows contrast wonderfully well and I think they’ll make a fine Spring look that’ll work well into Summer!
Although it’s not pimped in the promo image NARS released a new single eyeshadow shade in Night Sun. It deserves to be mentioned that all of the NARS “night” series shadows are always something special and Night Sun is no different in that aspect. It’s a bright true yellow shade with plenty of gold sparkle which will be ideal for pairing up with red, orange, or other warmer shades. Of course, by itself it looks stunning as well. Think MAC Pigment in Golden Lemon and you’ll pretty much have a great dupe (in press format) with NARS Night Sun. Gorgeous and I’m sure a favorite soon.
Finally I got NARS single shadow in Baby Girl. Baby Girl a nice, soft baby pink with soft golden shimmers. It’s quite a sheer shade but for lightening up the eye area it’s ideal.
So far, NARS Spring Collection 2009 is shaping up quite nicely and I look forward to exploring it further (especially that concealer). NARS rarely disappoints and Spring ’09 is far from disappointing! Fab job NARS the Muse loves it so far!
How about you?
