Cult Favorites

Mabuhay!

Every makeup brand has one star product; NARS has several. Ask any beauty junkie and they can name three off-hand: NARS Blush in "Oragasm", NARS Lipstick in "Schiap", and the Eyeshadow Duos as their pigments are impressive!

NARS Summer Collection 
A range of warm, sophisticated, shimmering shades, punctuated with shots of vivid, nature-defying color. Eyes are washed in icy sea foam, silver-green and frozen turquoise. Lips are infused with mandarin orange gloss and hot pink matte color. The look is finished with nails in bold sunflower yellow or matte opaque white for a modern, edgy effect that’s strictly NARS.

I love smoky eyes! Instead of using deep purples, navy or charcoal for your peepers, choose greens and aquas to create "summer" smoky eyes! FIERCE!

Have I become a "NARS-issist"? LOL

My personal collection
Clockwise: NARS Illuminator in "Laguna" (this color is perfect for tanned skin. I think mine should have been in "Orgasm" hue.); NARS Trio Eye Shadow Cap Ferrat in Icy sea form, silver green, icy turquoise (Limited Edition), NARS Nail Polish in "Schiap"; NARS Lipgloss in "Angelika"; NARS Lip & Cheek tint in "Angelika"; NARS, Blush in "Orgasm

My favorites:

NARS Blush in "Orgasm": If you Google NARS Blush in "Orgasm", you will read countless reviews on how fabulous this particular rouge is. It was dubbed as the "Queen of all Blushers" because of its "perfect" shimmery pinky-peach shade, typically reserved for those with olive skin tones (perfect for Pinays!)

Lav et: I am a convert! If you see me in person, you would probably notice my translucent reddish blush or a metallic pink rouge on my cheeks. I use them to achieve the "ka-age" (youthful) look. Haha! After trying the NARS Blush in "Orgasm", I realized that even with my pasty-colored skin, the peach colored blush (it's really the perfect peach shade) looks good on me, therefore, it is universally flattering on most skin tones!

Celebrities who swear by it: Jennifer Lopez, Katie Holmes, Amanda Peet, Mandy Moore, Mary Louise Parker, Marcia Cross, and Victoria Beckham. (Thanks to NARS Blush in "Orgasm", they all get the shiny, glowing look!)

Peach perfect: NARS Blush in "Orgasm"

NARS Lipstick in "Schiap": Before designer fuchsia lipsticks, there was NARS Lipstick in "Schiap". The shocking matte pink hue has jolted beauty junkies since the first time it was launched and is still making "shock" waves now!

Lav et: NARS Lipstick in "Schiap" shocking pink hue, matte, non-drying formula. Unfortunately, it's always out of stock! I just console myself with the NARS Nail Polish in the same hue.
Also, if you buy the NARS 'Tainted Love' set, you'll save at least a P1,000 compared to buying each one individually.

Limited Edition: NARS 'Tainted Love' Lip (in "Angelika"), Cheek (in "Angelika"), & Nail (in "Schiap") Set
NARS Lead Makeup Artist Michael Hanz autographed the NARS 'Tainted Love' set I bought. Thanks, Michael!

Mother Jen, would the Orgasm Blush be appropriate/bongga on Chinita/Yellowish complexion? Heard Super Orgasm is nice also pero it's more gliterry ata or something like that. Hope to get your feedback on this, thank you!!!!! :)

Hi "Anonymous"!

The NARS "Orgasm" blush has a bit of sheen but not obvious. I use it for day time and it looks good. If you have yellowish skin tone, I suggest that you visit the NARS beauty counter to try it on your skin. They can advise you on what hue will work best for your skin.
