NARS Orgasm Full Vinyl Lip Lacquer ($26.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a bright, medium pink-coral base chocked full of gold shimmer. The base looked creamier, and as a result, it settled into all of my lip lines noticeably (not at all “line-free”), despite the color itself not having any streaking. It had semi-opaque pigmentation (not quite “ultra-saturated” as described) and a mirror-like finish–very shiny. The consistency was light-medium in thickness but lightweight, though it was moderately tacky (and it wasn’t supposed to be). It wore well for four hours and was lightly hydrating.

Orgasm

NARS Orgasm Afterglow Lip Balm ($28.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a light-medium pink with soft, warm gold pearl. It’s supposed to be a “sheer wash” of color with a “radiant finish” paired with hydrating ingredients (like monoi oil). The texture was smooth, lightly creamy, and had a moderate amount of slip–in short, it felt like an emollient lip balm that slid around on my lips while worn (but was comfortable to wear).

The base color was sheer as described, but it yielded a noticeable sheen, light shimmer, and a barely-there pink tint. For someone who has naturally pinker or redder lips, I wouldn’t expect much effect or impact, though. The formula was lightly hydrating, but I found I preferred a lot of other lip balms over this for actual hydration. The shine and most of the shimmer seemed to disappear within a couple of hours. I didn’t notice any scent or taste.

Orgasm

NARS Orgasm Illuminating Loose Powder ($28.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a medium, rosy copper with warm, copper shimmer and a luminous sheen. As a loose highlighter, the pigmentation was really in the amount picked up–it could be quite pigmented if applied with a fingertip or quite sheer if applied with a fluffy, fan brush. The color was much, much darker and warmer than any of the Orgasm products I’ve come across (to the point where I wouldn’t have thought it was in the family at all).

Per the brand, the formula is supposed to give a “naturally glowing look” that can be used on the “face and décolleté.” The finish was softly luminous–very lit-from-within–when worn at sheer to medium coverage, but when worn at higher coverage or layered, it could look luminous to softly frosted. It was hard to overdo, though, and it did not emphasize my skin’s natural texture. The loose powder was finely-milled and easy to blend out, but a tip to help with application would be to lightly pick up product onto your brush, then swirl in the cap, which will help to distribute the product better on the brush for more even application on the cheeks (that then requires less blending). The highlighter lasted well for eight hours on me.
