My husband bought this for me as a gift to go with the orgasm blush. like alot of people, i love the blush! so pretty. the lip gloss on the other hand, was horrible. it looked nice on (but so does a lip gloss for 5 bucks and no one knows the difference) but the taste was disgusting. it tasted like oil to me, and i also kept getting crunchy bits in my mouth from the glitter. no thank you! took it back to sephora right away.

Skin tone and Type: nc/nw 07-10 or Nars Mont Blanc (currently August) or Kat Von D Lock-it (42/44 mix currently August). I have Acne prone, extremely sensitive, combination, oily skin. I have a lot of topical and internal allergies/ intolerances.

My lips are a pale pink at best, so not highly pigmented. I have difficulties with regular lips stick because I have a scar on my mouth from where I was bit by a dog when I was younger and had to have surgery. So this causes one side of my mouth doesn't have the same lip line as the other side of my mouth. It isn't really noticeable to the average person (apparently, that's what they tell me but I think they are trying to spare my non existence feelings on the subject) until I put on lipstick. This story really isn't important to the review of this gloss, but it is why I choose glosses and chap-sticks over an actual lipstick.

Also that being said I have never known a lip gloss to have the staying power of a matte lipstick. The glossier it is, the more it will move. The more Matte it is the more of the chances of it drying out your lips.

This lip gloss doesn't contain enough color in it to actually change the color of my lips. It does however when used sparingly create a nice coat sheer peachy color and sheen to my lips because of the shimmer giving them a nice moist glow. Which I like. Like others have stated, this does not have a flavor. I like this as well. It doesn't feel tacky the way drug store brands of lips gloss do to me. It also doesn't contain wheat or yeast protein which is a huge deal for me.

I will say that the price of $24 for a gloss is steep.

I'm not sure what I was thinking splurging on a lipgloss like this. I don't really care how dark this is when it's on my lips and how much sparkle is in it. Staying power isn't really impressive either. I won't be repurchasing.

I have had this for quite a while. My cousin had sent me the blush a couple years ago and I used that up real quick, I really loved the subtle color of it. So when I went into Sephora I purchased this along with The Multiple in the same shade (I didn't really like how The Multiple felt on my lips). I ended up choosing this shade as opposed to the Super Orgasm cause this was darker on my lips, the Super Orgasm was too light on my lips. I have to say I like this gloss as an everyday gloss. I don't wear a lot of make up so it gives my lips a natural glossy look. Which I really like. I don't normally like spending this much money on a gloss, but then again it's a best seller for a reason. It really is a beautiful subtle color. I also like using it as a base when I have a lipstick that's too dark so I put this on first and then the lipstick I want to lighten and it does the trick. Overall I have no complaints about this product. The packaging is cute, it's worth the money, beautiful color, natural looking, and something I wouldn't mind repurchasing.

Pretty light color that can be worn alone or over lipstick. The formula is excellent, not tacky or sticky and no flavor (I hate glosses with flavor). It applies well and feels fantastic on the lip. It lasts, also helps to make the lipstick last longer, and is NOT drying. Loving NARS glosses. This is a great color, very light peachy pink.

What a pretty color! This is the first lip gloss from this line I have used, and I purchased it based on other reviews I have read. I really love this color, and I think it would look good with a lot of skin tones. It is a peachy sheen color. It is a little on the sticky side, but overall it is a very nice shade, and I would definitely purchase this again in the future.

This is a very frosty peach color when applied to the lips. I love 'Orgasm' in blush form, but lip gloss is just okay. I am not one to spend a lot of money on makeup, but I splurged a few weeks ago and purchased this from Sephora. I do not like the consistancy at all! Very sticky and gooey. The color looked pretty terrible against my skin. But the more and more I wear it, the more I like it over my lipstick!

I made the mistake of buying this online without trying it first. I really like Orgasm blush so I figured this would be great. I was wrong. This is very peach and very frosty/metallic. Extremely unflattering with my fair skin and sandy blond hair. I bought Super Orgasm gloss which is pink, more sheer, and much much prettier.

I love peachy pinks and corals when it comes to glosses. But I just couldn't get this shade to work for me (for reference, I have light neutral skin, warm blonde hair and green eyes and I tend to look healthiest with cosmetics that emphasise my warmth/yellow undertones.) I didn't expect this to look quite so unworkably golden on me, or so heavily frosted. (Mind you, I should have guessed from the glitter ball cheeks the blush equivalent gave me.)
I looked almost futuristic (maybe that's the colour Martians go when they orgasm, because it certainly wasn't a human shade!!) And once the colour had worn off, my lips had a weird metallic look and felt dehydrated.
I've been pretty disappointed with all the NARS lipglosses I've tried - aside from the lip lacquer pots (though even they aren't HG status for me.) I don't think I'll be buying into the hype any more.

I went to the counter to buy Turkish Delight but it did not suit me so i thought i would try this colour on and boi did i fall in love hard with this shade. It looked amazing on me and when the colour starts to go through out the day its still very moisturing and with a sheen and makes my lips looks beautifil. I think this colour would suit most people for reference i am an NC40/42.
