NARS Special Edition Orgasm Blush Review & Swatches

NARS Orgasm Blush Special Edition

It’s true! NARS Orgasm is getting a super size upgrade for Summer 2016! The new NARS Special Edition Orgasm Blush that’s available for a limited time in a 0.28 oz size for $39 (nearly double the size of a regular NARS Blush).

NARS Orgasm has long since been a holy grail blush shade for me! It’s one of the blushes that convinced me I look best in peach blushes! So, of course, total no brainier that I’m excited about a large size of it. Because we all need bigger Orgasms in our life.


I had to make some dumb joke! My inner teenage boy demanded it.

The NARS Special Edition orgasm Blush will be available May 1st at NARS Boutiques and narscosmetics.com and June 1, 2016 at Sephora, Sephora.com, and other department stores so if you want it that’s the best times to grab it up!

This weights in at 0.28 oz in size and will be $39. Typically NARS Blush is $30 and 0.16 oz in size so you’re getting nearly double with the Special Edition Orgasm for a mere nine dollars more.

This comes in special edition packaging which is the typical black rubberized NARS compact but it has “NARS Orgasm” printed on the front and the inside mirror has the hastag #WhatMakesYouBlush printed on it. There’s a film covering the blush which mimics the outer box packaging that features a model wearing Orgasm on her cheeks and looking ready for a day at the beach. I loved this film so much! Why? Because it kinda gives the vibe that the image is imprinted on the blush! Of course, if said image was printed on the brush within a few uses it would disappear. The film can be replaced easily enough without ruining anything! Pretty cool right?

As I mentioned above, Orgasm has been a long time favorite of mine. It’s a blush I’ve actually hit pan on. As makeup addict you likely all can appreciate hitting pan on a favorite product since it is such a rarity it happens. As we all have such massive stashes and many options to choose from that actually using up a product seems like a urban legend. Orgasm is one of those products I reach for very, very often!

It’s the perfect golden peachy pink shade that gives me a radiant flush of color and luminosity on my cheeks!

As we approach Summer it becomes an even more favorite shade as the color just works great in glow-y, fresh Summer looks.

More of the things will love is always a good thing so, I, for one, happen to be very happy that there’s a larger size of NARS Orgasm around now!

Several years ago NARS Orgasm was Muse Approved by me when I first tried it and right now, to this very day it still remains a Muse Approved item! I just love this shade and can’t rave it enough!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    Thanks Muse for your review. I am interested in it. I was wondering if the blush has more pink or more peach in it. Thanks. Your swatch looks more pink but I thought this blush had more peach.

    • Isabella Muse

      It actually has more peach in my opinion but it actually looks a lot different on a variety of skin tones! I get more golden peach without too much pink on my cheeks but I’ve seen really fairer skin types that you can really see and appreciate the pink to the shade. Hope this helps!

  • blee

    I like and have it, but it’s that lip stick you have on. What are you wearing? So pretty! πŸ™‚

      • blee

        LOL I’m like the bug in ,* Bugs Life*. It’s like a light and I have to go see it. ZAP!, but it’ s so pretty. LOL you just made my day. πŸ™‚

  • Dee

    Looks great on you! Sadly this never worked for me. Was so excited to try it years ago and it just wasn’t anything special on my cheeks.

    • Isabella Muse

      lol! You don’t want to go there truly you don’t πŸ™‚

  • Claire L

    Haha, where do you get your inner teenage boy from? My fiancé is terrible with teenage boy jokes and I, not having had any brothers to grow up with, give him the side eye when he does it! On another note, I only recently acquired Orgasm from a set NARS put together with Space NK, and I love it! It’s not too glittery or bright on my fair skin and it’s really flattering :-).

    • Isabella Muse

      I hang out with more men than women. Many of friends are guys and most of them are still living the frat boy life thus I’m overloaded with fart jokes and other crazy stuff πŸ™‚ It rubs off after a while I suppose haha! Yay! Glad to hear it! It’s one of my fav blush shades always happy when someone says they are using/loving it too!

  • Majickq

    I know I’m late to the party but I just saw this on the nars website and was trying to figure out if the pic was printed on the blush. I knew I could count on you for an answer! LOL I think I still have my original orgasm blush from a million years ago – it was always a little too sparkly for me. But I like this new presentation, I think it’s pretty cool.

    • Isabella Muse

      No luck! That would be cool! But it’s actually just a little film that pops off! Sorry chica! I like it as well! I’m happy they did it in a larger size as I use Orgasm often!
