Heya! I just got back from journalism class, and, uh … needless to say it was interesting. The topic of the day was interviewing, and during the lecture one of the students revealed that she’d once been interviewed for a story about her membership in a “meditation cult.”
After my classmate’s confession, my mind started drifting to thoughts of other cults — makeup cults — specifically, the Cult of Nars Orgasm Blush!
It’s a shimmery, peachy pink blush famous in the makeup world for the BOOM-CHIKA-WAH-WAH! glow it gives to cheeks.
I’ve tried both Nars Orgasm and its uber-glittery cousin, Super Orgasm, and truth be told neither one really rocked my boat. I thought Orgasm was too light, and Super Orgasm had too much glitter.
But when I spied the cream version of the blush in the Nars Multiple Duo in Orgasm/South Beach ($45), I was determined to give the shade another try.
This Multiple Duo is one of five and comes with the shimmery, peachy pink Orgasm and South Beach, its shimmery coral partner in crime (more on South Beach in a few). At $45, it’s definitely on the expensive side, but the pans aren’t small, and purchased individually they’d cost $37 each.

On my skin, the cream cousin of Orgasm looks way different than the powder version does. It applies with much more intense color, and I can actually see it on my skin!
I love the sun-kissed, natural flush my cheeks have when I wear it. I gotta say it looks like the flush I get right after I … hey, now, get your mind out of the gutter, dirty birdy. I was going to say, “the exact same flush I get after a run or a date with the stair stepper machine.” 😉
Orgasm isn’t the only star in the duo. Nars packed shimmery coral South Beach with golden micro-glitter, and just like Orgasm it delivers a natural flush.

It costs a pretty penny, but I have a feeling most girls will be able to wear it with a variety of looks throughout spring and into summer. That kinda makes the price a little easier to swallow.
The $37 single cream version of Orgasm I mentioned a second ago comes in a stick called Orgasm The Multiple, LOL!
Just another manic Monday
Whew! Mondays are usually my busy days, and this one was true to form. I’m glad it’s almost over. Hopefully I can make it to dance class tonight, and hopefully tonight’s routine doesn’t involve break dancing. I’m so not in the mood to watch my belly jiggle from all angles.
