Directions of Use
Blush is the fastest and easiest way to give yourself a pick-me-up. Start by applying blush to the apples of the cheeks. Take what's left on the brush and sweep across the hairline, bridge of the nose, and the chin. Neutral-tone blushes can also be used to contour and sculpt the skin. –JAMES BOEHMER, DIRECTOR OF GLOBAL ARTISTRY

Review:

I'm lucky to have the Shiseido Warehouse Sale near where I live because they carry NARS products as well. If I were to pay full price to try out NARS products, I might be very hesitant for sure. My theory is that I usually invest into expensive foundations but not colour make up like eyeshadows or blushes.  I  purchased mine as part of a gift set so if I break it down by pieces, my blush cost me about $15.

Packaging is just like all other NARS product, matte black and collects all the dirt there is. When I brought it to use in Hong Kong, the packaging kind of melted due to the heat. It was extremely nasty so I always need to wipe it clean with alcohol. However, I have heard that they have decided to use this type of packaging because it is easy to recycle. Inside comes with a mirror - convenient for me to apply make up.

The texture of the blush in the case is rough to touch, I tend to apply with a blush and good thing - it's not rough on my cheeks at all.

In terms of colour, I think that it is pretty much the same as the regular orgasm except it has chunky gold glitter. It is a coral pink with golden luminous glow, it blends into the skin beautifully and is suitable for all skin tones. I feel that it looks especially good on sun kissed skin. With a light hand, it suits well with pale skin tones too. The glow never makes me look shiny, just a nice healthy sheen. The blush is very pigmented and has an incredible staying power of 6-7 hours.  I almost never need to touch up my blush.

Many people on blogs and MakeUpAlley complained how the glitter eventually gets all over the face. I agree with that, so on days that I don't want any gold glitter, I use a face brush to brush the glitter off before I finish my look. The gold glitter to me is generally not very noticeable but it's a nice accent to have. 

Overall, this is one of my favourite blush. I like the Super Orgasm over Orgasm because I like the option of having glitter. Colour, pigmentation, longevity are all superb. The price is rather steep however if you find a good deal or have extra money to spurge, I truly recommend this blush. I think it looks amazing on Asian skin tones.
