I dunno if you remember This post? I basically said I didn’t know what all the fuss was about, it was alright but I wasn’t keen on the conistency of it and although I quite liked it I just didn’t understand why it was such a cult item.
Well I needed to come back to this subject. My views haven’t changed as such, I still don’t absolutely love it, I have far prettier blushers in my (extensive) collection and if asked to recommend a blush, the Orgasm wouldn’t immediately spring to mind. But having said that… I realised the other day that I reach for it frequently without even thinking about it. I use it very often indeed. I even used it for my sisters wedding day which would seem an odd choice on such an important day to use a blusher I’m not fussed about.
So I’ve had a rethink about it. What do I think about this blush? No, its not my ideal consistency, no, it’s not a pretty pink, nor does it have a fancy duochrome, yes it’s rather bland, but you know what. Maybe I don’t have to love a product to love it!
When I don’t know what colour blush to wear I reach for Orgasm for a hint of natural colour, when I don’t want anything too pale, or too bright, or too pink, or too tan, I reach for Orgasm. And it turns out that I do this often.
So my lovely little Nars Orgasm, I’m sorry for doubting you. You might not be the showiest of products and you appear so unassuming it’s easy to underestimate you, but like a friend you take for granted, I wouldn’t know how good you were until you were gone. Thank goodness I wised up and no longer will you be that boring blush but I’m going to appreciate you for what you are from now on, an absolute staple.
PS: Orgasm, don’t let this go to your head, I still don’t know how you’ve managed to elevate yourself to cult status. You’re good, but you’re not that good!
