NARS Orgasm Afterglow Lip BalmNARS 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.
Indulge lips with a hint of shine and a smoothing sensation. Featuring Monoï Hydrating Complex for smooth, supple comfort, and a blend of antioxidants to help protect lips.
