Multiple O

I’m a fan of NARS Orgasm blush as much as the next gal (or maybe more, actually) and now they’ve ejac come out with another palette so you can go even deeper with your craze for this good stuff.

Behold the “Foreplay” palette:

Batteries Not Included.

On sale RIGHT NOW at Sephora, you can get this titillating palette which I just know will give you the best glow ever! I mean, it’s gonna be real hard to go back to plain old blush after this one!

Here’s me blabbering on and on about NARS Orgasm blush.

“O” my goodness!

Everyone raves about NARS most popular shade of blush “Orgasm.” As a fervent blush user, you’d think I would have tried it already, but I didn’t understand the hype.

Quite frankly, I just thought you all were faking it.

NARS highlighting/bronzing blush duo in "Orgasm/Laguna"

Sephora has this neat blush/bronzer duo compact that is your one stop shop to O-Ville. “Orgasm,” a peachy-pink shimmer, and “Laguna,” a sheer light brown shimmer, can be worn separately or together for a surprisingly natural glow. Yishar Koach, I am now a believer! Here without further ado, are the money shots:

Before: Instagrammed Winter Pallor 😦

After: An Acceptable Winter Glow 🙂

And I liked it so much I decided to do it again…

And again…

All jokes aside, here’s a full facial shot so you can see the difference this blush makes:

Stage left: glowy bliss; stage right: frustratingly pale

Mazels to Nars and Sephora for this orgasmic product.

O-no, O-Glow…

I’m always looking for the new, innovative thing in the beauty product world, so when Smashbox’s O-GLOW came out, I gladly shelled out $26 for a tube and could not wait to take it out for a spin. The description is complex and scientific, so I thought “WOW! You need a B.A. in biology to understand this new blush! That means it will totally work.”

Contains C20H11N2Na3O10S3; street name: Bullshit.

The description reads:

Experience instant chemistry as you watch your complexion go from so-so to oh-so-glowing! This intuitive cheek color reacts with your personal skin chemistry to transform from a silky clear gel into the shade you blush naturally.

O-Glow is packed with our exclusive Goji Berry-C Complex, ginkgo biloba, pomegranate seed for antioxidant protection, and revitalizing marine botanicals for added healthy-skin benefits.

Seems simple enough. You spread the clear, slightly grainy gel onto your cheeks, and it instantly turns pink, giving your cheeks a flush in the color you would normally get when you…well, see the product’s name for a hint. It sounds pretty cool, except when I use it, it comes out looking more like this:

Major exaggeration.

My point is, I get some splotchy pink smears on my cheeks, and it fades very quickly. It looks more like an exercise flush than a natural “O-Glow,” as they call it. I end up looking more like a chubby 4th grader who just ran a mile than a post-coital sex kitten. (Note to self, those two examples should never be used in the same sentence. Gross!) If anything, you should use your O-Glow on top of another, more substantial blush.

It could be because I’m relatively tan, or it could be because Smashbox is trying to pull a bunch of biological mumbo-jumbo over our heads, but I can tell you that I’m not a big fan of this product.
