NARS Orgasm X Blush

NARS has their 20% off friends and family sale going on right now. If you are in the market for any of their products you still have time to shop until the sale ends on May 18, 2021 at 3:00 AM EST.

I want to quickly mention my issues with ordering from NARS. I have not heard other complaints about ordering directly from their website, but since I have had issues I wanted to tell you my experience. The customer service department and their responsive to issues has typically been great. The problem is how many issues I’ve had. Out of the 4 orders I have placed directly on their website, I’ve had issues with 3 of them. One order was missing an item, one order was damaged, and one was lost. The lost order was the one time I didn’t have a good customer service experience and had to talk to someone different in order to get a replacement order. Again, I have always received replacements or refunds (when necessary) but the repeat issues are too much hassle for me to try ordering directly from them again. Clearly, not everyone will have issues, but I thought it was worth telling you about.

Anyways, I recently received a small (1.2g) Orgasm X blush as a sample on a recent order, so I thought I’d share a swatch. The regular size NARS Blushes retail for $30.00 (4.8g) and they offer a mini size for $16.00 (2.5g).

NARS describes this shade as a shimmering deep coral with gold pearl and I think they missed the mark on that description. At least on me, the shade is more pink than coral, and I wouldn’t say there is anything deep about it. I definitely see the gold pearl, so maybe this does actually appear to be a deep coral on other skin tones. The shade is buildable, but the more you build the more that gold pearl starts to accentuate texture. So technically, I could get more color from it, but it never builds to anything deeper.

  1. I had the same observation about Orgasm X. It’s very much a pink rather than deep coral on me. I prefer to wear a light layer and not build up the color as well. I’m glad it’s at least more wearable as a blush on me than the original Orgasm shade. Also, thank you for mentioning the ordering process when dealing with Nars directly. I haven’t ordered from their website before, and it will definitely make me think twice about it in the future.

    1. This should have been a version of Orgasm for dark skin. Well at least that is what I was hoping the release was supposed to be about.
