Lipstick -NARS -Orgasm Lip Balm

on 5/24/2018 1:44:00 AM

This was advertised as a super hot product. I fell for it-not like me!

Packaging is good. Twist up lipstick that's rather sheer hence, balm. Looks orangey but, definitely has a pink base with a peachy finish.

I applied it like a regular lipstick. I did go over my lips a lot as it really is sheer-as a balm usually is.

My biggest disappointment is that this balm feels creamy going on but, has extremely little staying power. Less that 30 minutes on me. I was surprised! I looked in a mirror and did not see the color I applied. I saw a strawberry pinkish, almost stain like residual. I don't lick my lips, did not apply anything under this balm nor did I eat, drink, kiss or anything to remove it. It's shimmery when I put it on. Much of that disappeared, too.

I ordered this direct from NARS without testing it or seeing it. Big mistake. Sephora had already sold out of it on May 20.

Definitely not worth the price. No staying power. Color doesn't look the same after a few minutes. Felt a little dry after a short period of time.

I suggest testing this product in the event you consider purchasing NARS Orgasm Lip Balm. I have 30 days to return it. If the shipping isn't too costly, I will. I won't wear it again. It's not how I want to look 30 minutes after I do my makeup.

I purchased Dior Balm and feel this lasts for hours, doesn't change color and isn't drying. Those, I'll re-purchase. FYI, this was my 1st NARS lip product. Huge let down for me. I can't compare their lipsticks to this balm.

Foundations -NARS -Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation

on 5/23/2018 3:33:00 PM


I got this in fiji and it leans more yellow than the fiji in sheer glow. I prefer the sheer glow because its less drying and less matte than this. It just doesnt sit on my combo oily skin as nice and dewy as the sheer glow. Im glad i tried both because i feel you either like this or the other, they are very different foundations on my skin. I look too matte and a bit cakey and i feel that matures my skin a lot so i prefer the dewy finish{even though i get oily i just use the murad oil mattifier and the nars loose powder on top}. This looked more masklike and i def looked like i have foundation on. Also the ingredients are more acne causing and irritating than the sheer glow(cosdna) the only upside to this foundation is that it is lightweight. If you like full coverage but hate the feeling then this would be good. Maybe try it with a good primer so its more smoother of an application. I dont use primers so this one is a no no for me. i pick the sheer glow

Lip Treatments -NARS -Afterglow Lip Balm - Orgasm

on 5/23/2018 9:36:00 AM

Nars promotes this as a lip balm. Thus, it is in the lip treatment category. But this is one of those great hybrids between a lipstick and a gloss. Not sticky like a gloss but tones of shine. It is in your typical Orgasm peachy - pink with gold shimmer shade. As of now, that is the only color available. I bought this on a whim to hit the free shipping mark on a Sephora order. But it has delighted me. This is the kind of product I LOVE in the summer. Comfortable, juicy, shiny, pop of color on what might otherwise be a bare SPF only face that brings out color and flush in my nw20 deep winter complexion. This thing was made for summer.

The only cons I will say, is that some may find it too expensive for what it is (which is true) and others may not like the sheen that can almost look a touch metallic. It has the same look (but peachy, instead of rosy) as Anastasia's Metallic Rose lip gloss.

I am very glad I decided to buy it. With the end of May looming, this was perfect timing for this purchase. I just have to be sure I don't completely ignore my other summer lippies. ;)

Loose Powders -NARS -Light Reflecting Loose Setting Powder

on 5/23/2018 3:01:00 AM


This has less acne causing ingredients than other powders. It works great and i have no complaints. I pair this with nars sheer glow. Very natural and nice finish and it doesnt look like i am wearing powder or have that cakey look. The make up for ever one i did not like because it was more chalky on the skin
