Orgasm

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.

Formula Overview

$26.00/0.17 oz. - $152.94 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have "patent shine" and "high-octane color," which is further translated into "mirror-like shine" and "intense color" and has a "moisturizing feel." The applicator is made with two distinct sides; one side "features a reservoir to deposit the ideal amount of color" (it's slightly indented) and the other side "evenly distributes the formula." I actually felt that the applicator often over-applied the product, and I'd expect someone with thinner lips may find they need to wipe some off prior to applying to their lips.

The texture was plush, moderate in thickness but lighter weight (not heavy but I knew I was wearing gloss) and had light to moderate tackiness, which became more noticeable over time. I felt that the shimmery shades applied the best--more even, better coverage, and sat well on my lips--while the cream shades were inconsistent though often quite pigmented. The lighter cream shades (like Santo Domingo) almost appeared bubbled on my lips, not streaky or uneven per se, but the finish wasn't as flattering or as smooth as it was for deeper, richer hues (like Red District). Both finishes were very shiny--dare I say, mirror-like!--and glossy.

Most shades were pigmented, and the majority lasted at least four hours with some lasting as long as six hours on me. The formula was comfortable to wear and lightly to moderately hydrating over time. They were scented with something sweet and syrupy, not typical vanilla, but didn't seem to have a discernible taste to me.

Christine, any thoughts about the applicator?

I saw they were saying the 2 sides of the paddle are supposed to achieve different things (perfect application vs making it shinier) and I was wondering if that was true

No this is not a good look for most of us and particularly for myself with my aged lips and lots of lip lines. It is a pretty shade but considering how pigmented my lips are I think it would not make such a lovely shade on me.

I recently picked this up because I love Nars Orgasm blush and wanted something from the new Orgasm collection. I should have went was the powder instead. This is ok but something I could’ve picked up at the drugstore for half the price.
