NARS has two videos on their site which I thought were interesting so I thought I’d share them here with you!
The first video is entitled “A Healthy, Radiant Complextion” and this features the NARS Senior Stylist James Boehmer giving tips and tricks on using foundation and concealer!
You can view that video by clicking here.
As I was watching the video I realized that I never tried NARS concealer before! Must add that onto my list for review!
Update: Ah ha now I know why I never purchased NARS concealer, it comes in a lipstick style tube! The Muse no likey that style of concealer! Ack!
The second video is entitled “A Beautiful Cheek” and shows a detailed guide for ahcieving contoured cheeks.
You can view that video here.
While I was watching this video I realized that my blush is “WOW” in your face! I never apply to the lower cheek area, I normally apply to the apples of my cheek! I’m wondering if I choose to apply this way if it would give the illusion of a slimmer face hmmmm!
All in all a rather fun way to procrastinate at work today! Happy viewing!
Stop back and tell me whatcha think of the videos!

What are your favorite pieces?
Simply gagging to hear your thoughts!
NARS Orgasm is something you either really, really love or something you just didn’t like and felt like the hype didn’t quite live up to the actual product.
The fact is I happen to fall into the really, really love category when discussing NARS Orgasm however if you happen to fall into the “meh I didn’t like it all that much” category I’m about to convince you that NARS Super Orgasm is an absolute must have.
NARS Super Orgasm is currently available exclusively from Sephora as Beauty Exclusive item online and will later be released worldwide with the NARS Holiday Collection soon. NARS Super Orgasm comes with my highest seal of approval and recommendation for purchase. You needs it, pure and simple.
NARS Orgasm is a great blush however when compared with NARS Super Orgasm no question remains which version is the better option and now a favorite of mine.
NARS Orgasm has a slightly iridescent finish which I’m not particularly fond of however NARS Super Orgasm fulfills the hype that surrounds NARS Orgasm and offers a gorgeous, silky finish that’s simply gorgeous.

Sporting NARS Super Orgasm
Although both shades appear similiar the finishes are absolutely different. NARS Orgasm is a sheer, pinky peach shade where as NARS Super Orgasm is a very pigmented pinky peach shade without the iridescent finish of it’s previous release. The color is considerably deeper and the finishes are vastly different. I notice a glow to my face when I’m using Orgasm but when I use Super Orgasm I get a blushing cheek and what looks like I applied a highlighter on top. Super Orgasm has a good deal of a better color payoff than the regular Orgasm as well and offers buildable color where as Orgasm was considered to sheer by some, Super Orgasm offers popping color to cheeks this time around. NARS Super Orgasm does have a good deal of gold glitter in the formula however it doesn’t show up on skin and once applied you’re just left with perfectly peachy pink cheeks that are both natural looking and gorgeous.
Out of the two shades I must say NARS Super Orgasm definately makes it onto my favorite list. The color is versatile enough to suit every single season be it Spring, Summer, Winter or Fall. The pay off is considerably deeper and shimmery when compared to regular Orgasm. The irritating iridescent finish from Orgasm is replaced with a smoother, more natural finish. The large pieces of glitter in the blush turn into a beautiful shimmery look on the cheeks that’s not over done but just perfect.
Yes, yes indeed this is Holy Grail material.
The Muse is loving NARS Super Orgasm! Get yourself to Sephora and order yourself some! For the lovers of NARS Orgasm you’ll want to experience and fall in love all over again when you purchase Super Orgasm, for those of you who weren’t originally impressed with NARS Orgasm be prepared to fall in love for the first time with this amazing blush, and for those new to NARS Orgasm…you need to indulge in Super Orgasm it’s the most universally flattering shade of blush you’ll ever come across!
The Muse recommends, approves it, and says go get it now!
Got it already?
Are you an Orgasm fan?

NARS Lipgloss in Revolt Review
NARS Orgasm Lipgloss and Nail Polish Set Review
NARS Lipgloss in Misbehave Review
There was some discussion after I posted my NARS Revolt review over whether or not MAC Lipglass in Jampacked was similiar to NARS Lipgloss in Revolt.
Both shades are completely different to me. Revolt is a sheer grape where as Jampacked has more of a tinge of cherry to it!
As per your request here are images comparing the too!
I hope this helps
NARS Lipgloss in Revolt Review
MAC Cult of the Cherry Review featuring an FOTD using MAC Lipglass in Jampacked
The vampy lip is definately in this season. Bold shades of red, purple, and even black make up an interesting lip look for the Fall however pulling off these looks isn’t as easy as it appears!
If you’re like the Muse you may love the look of the vampy lip but might be a bit wary of trying it out for yourself. This could be because you shy away from bolder looks or you might have a fuller face and you’re scared such a loud lip will look garish on, whatever your reason for not trying out this hot new trend I’ll happily recommend you one of my personal picks for an easy, quick, simple, and quite flatteringly subdued vampy lip look.
NARS Lipgloss in Revolt is a wonderful gloss for creating a perfect purple pout while keeping it sheer yet elegant without creating a loud, bold effect.
The color is a simple grape shade that’s flattering on most skin tones. The effect is a very nice dark, crushed berry look on the lips. Intensity of the shade can be built up or toned down to suit the look you prefer.
I applied several layers of NARS Lipgloss in Revolt and still the look is natural and flattering without being extreme. I think the gloss is perfection if you’re wanting to sport the vampy look but not take the plunge with a very bold color.
Vampy lips for the Fall are Muse Approved and products that make this trend easy and simple get a big Yay from the Muse!
You can purchase NARS Lipgloss from the NARS website and be sure to check out the color Metis too which looks like a create gloss for a vampy lip!
