Wanna Have An Orgasm?

NARS Orgasm X Quad Eyeshadow arrived last week did you snag one? P.S. Get your mind out of the gutter over there.

NARS released two new Orgasm Eyeshadow Palettes as an early Summer 2020 release one of which popped up at Sephora during the last day of the Rouge Event. That particular palette is a softer selection of shades inspired by Orgasm Blush. I picked it up but in no way is it a good representation of the blush as the colors are very, very soft. The Orgasm X Eyeshadow Palette is another story. That’s actually inspired by the new Orgasm X Blush and includes a far deeper shade range. Did anyone notice that Orgasm X seems to have quietly replaced Super Orgasm? It’s only available a single pro refill but I can’t seem to find it in permanent packaging.

The Orgasm X Eyeshadow Palette seemed to be exclusive to the NARS website at the moment but it’s bound to branch out and wander onto higher-end counters when stores re-open I’m sure. From promo images it seems like an almost rosy berry infusion of shades that again, don’t really remind me of Orgasm.

Do you ever sit there wondering why after all this time NARS hasn’t paired up Orgasm with some sort of gold shade? Gold and peach just go well together! Why not do a palette with an actual Orgasm eyeshadow shade with a deeper gold for a sunset eye look?

And how long can we ride the Orgasm train? Hey, I’m not complaining give me all the Orgasm makeup. But at this point it feels like NARS has pretty much extended the Orgasm shade to every single product they can extend it too. Is there anything else they can shade like Orgasm that hasn’t already been done? My mind is already thinking Summer 2021! I need to brain storm with them on that collection.

Are you picking up the Orgasm X Quad Eyeshadow Palette? Or the Orgasm Quad Eyeshadow Palette?

Which are you loving more?

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.

    It has gotten to the point that I no longer think of the original meaning of the word. Kind of like when you’re watching tv and wonder why no on has masks on. The shade is the new reference point. Then I think, ‘Here he goes again exploiting his cult favorite.’ or ‘Here he goes again beating a dead horse.’ I like the softness and barely there aspect, but we’re so used to pigmented at this point, that X is likely to be a better seller.

      LMAO! you’ve become conditioned to think of Orgasm as a makeup LOL! X is likely going to be the better seller of the two for sure. Not everyone appreciates the softness of the original Orgasm one.

        The worst one of those for me was when I thought ‘How undignified of a president to be in an insurance commercial!’ Dennis Haysbert. (24) I beat myself up over that stupidity for days! OMBFG. No wonder they downgraded Pluto, when they found out I was orbiting there.

    I’m so sick of Orgasm! Peaches look wretched on me, peaches plus golden glitter looks horrible on me. So many gorgeous colors in the Nars vault (of course I’m blanking now) and they double down on Orgasm; it feels like there hasn’t been a non-orgasm release in years.

      I’m still guilty of being on the orgasm train! It’s just a shade that looks fab on me but they really do go hard with the shade and none of the releases are all that unique!

    These are gorgeous! I balk at the price, but maybe a splurge purchase. I splurged on a Bobbi Brown eyeshadow palette a few years ago, and I don’t regret it!
