Nars Super Orgasm blush

Nars Orgasm blush is a cult beauty favourite, and most beauty bloggers have a palette of this in their stash, but Nars Super Orgasm, should that be on your must-buy list too?

Nars are known for creating some of the industry’s most iconic shades for cheeks, offering natural, healthy-looking colour that immediately enlivens the complexion.

Nars Orgasm is the perfect example of this, it’s a peachy-pink shade with golden shimmers that work to enliven the skin beautifully. Orgasm awakens the skin giving off a gorgeous, glowing look with a minimal amount of product applied.

Nars Super Orgasm is a similar shade but with chunkier and more golden glitter, it’s more of a blush and highlighter product in one.

The chunky golden glitters in Super Orgasm make it appear more golden and lighter than Orgasm, but when applied to the cheeks the peach-pink shade is pretty similar, the difference comes in from the glitter and highlight detail. Nars Orgasm is a lot more wearable in this respect, it’s a brilliant everyday shade that makes skin look healthy and glowing, without a heavy dose of glitter on the cheeks.

Unfortunately, the glitter in Super Orgasm does get everywhere else after you’ve applied it to your cheeks. The glitter doesn’t stick or adhere to the powder, so it is like applying loose glitter to your cheeks.

Pros of Nars Super Orgasm

Blendable, smooth, long-wearing, easy to apply, creamy, highly pigmented, buildable, natural looking, laminating effect on the skin

Cons of Nars Super Orgasm

Glitter fall off, glitter can be a bit too much for everyday wear

Bottom Line

Orgasm and Super Orgasm by Nars are cult beauty favourites, and both give a beautiful pink-peachy glow. We think Orgasm is better because it lacks the glitter you find in abundance in Super Orgasm.

Orgasm gives a peach glow and is perfect for the spring and summer seasons. Super Orgasm is slightly pinker than Orgasm, it also has a golden glitter which makes it more likely to be a blush we’d reach for in the evenings or on a night out.

Francois Nars’ tips on applying blush

Make-up artist Francoise Nars says that cheek colour shouldn’t be limited to the apples of the cheeks as no blushes only on their cheeks. “I always blend a bit into the hairline, along the jawbone, and on the tip of the most to create a more natural-looking, all-over hint of colour.
