Nars Powder Blush Orgasm,Super Orgasm & Deep Throat - Review,Swatches & Comparison

NARS blushes are award winning one of their best seller products. No matter how many affordable dupes are now available in the market, ask any makeup addict , secretly they do want to own at least one (if not all) Nars blush.
My obsession with NARS started couple of years ago, and since then I am proud owner of more than 10 Nars cheek products. I plan on buying more in coming future. It’s a shame that I never really reviewed any Nars blush on blog. I always recommend Nars to anyone who asks for my opinion because Nars not only make fabulous shimmery blushes but also some of beautiful mattes too. In fact my first every Nars blush was Amour, Which is a matte and falls in Nars deep throat category but it’s darker, more has obviously no shimmer.

Today i will review Nars Orgasm , Super Orgasm & Deep throat  .

NARS Orgasm Powder Blush is a peachy pink with golden shimmer
NARS Super Orgasm Powder Blush is a peachy pink with gold glitter
NARS Deep Throat Powder Blush is a flirty, sheer peach.

Nars powder blush in Orgasm is the most hyped up and one of the most talked about blush shade . It is one of the Holy grail products and many makeup artists/bloggers swear by it. Its a beautiful blush with some stunning golden sheen. The Nars deep throat has more color payoff compared to nars orgasm blush and its a everyday blush. The pigmentation is great , and you can easily buildup the coverage, The Nars super orgasm blush is my least favorite and least used blush.The glitter is chunky and doesn't blend completely and result is sometimes -Fallout other areas of face .
The texture of Nars blushes is soft & smooth and they are dream to blend.They aren't insanely pigmented as Nars also describes them as fairly sheer, They are on the pricier side but they are totally worth every penny. Once or twice a year Nars comes with Blush palettes , Which are great since you get to try different shades and prices are usually great. I mostly bought my Nars cheek products from or . I believe the best time to justify the price is to get nars products when these sites have their 20% friend and family sale, which is usually twice a year.
I have the following shades and in coming days i plan to post reviews on all of them .

  • Madly - seashell pink
  • Deep Throat - peach with shimmer
  • Amour - peachy pink
  • Desire - cotton candy pink
  • Exhibit A - brilliant red   
  • Torrid - coral with shimmer
  • Orgasm - peachy pink with shimmer
  • Desire - cotton candy pink
  • Super Orgasm - peachy pink with gold glitter 
  • Sin - berry with gold shimmer
  • Laguna brown with golden shimmerr
  • Casino dark brown with golden shimmer
Highlighter :
  • Albatross - sheer light golden sheen
  • Hungry Heart (Gold ivory)
To show the shades better, the below swatches are taken in different lightnings .
 Nars Powder Blush Orgasm,Super Orgasm & Deep Throat-comparison 
 Nars Powder Blush Orgasm,Super Orgasm & Deep Throat-swatch
Summary :I get asked a lot about Which one I think Nars blush one should get? I love my Nars blushes , But reach out to Madly, Amour and Deep throat more than any others. If you don't mind visible glitter try super orgasm ! maybe ?The deep throat is more of peach on my NC35 skin tone, and Orgasm looks like a peachy pink color with a gold sheen,If you are fair -medium skin tone , and want a subtle glow Nars Orgasm will look beautiful on you. But if you want color on your cheeks, go for Nars deep throat.Its a very wearable yet versatile shade which will suit just about anyone.
Honestly you cant just have one of these , you need both in your life. Did i made the decision of buying Nars blush more harder for you? 
Price & Availability : $27 /Sephora , , You can pre order this through beauty hub facebook page.

Do You Dare ? Senna Winter 2013 Collection- Eye Makeup Tutorial

Senna recently launched their Winter 2013 called the Do You Dare? Collection. I played with the products and came up with this tutorial. The collection includes Foreshadow in Silver Lining Glow eyeshadow ($18), Pinpoint Micro Tip Liquid Eyeliner in Black ($20), Voluptulash volumizing mascara ($22), Lip Liner in Crimson ($18), Cream Lipstick in Venetian Red($20), and Lip Lacquer in Maraschino ($20).

The Pinpoint micro tip liquid eyeliner was a treat to work , and i personally feel it is the star product of the collection.It applies so effortlessly. The Senna Cream Lipstick in Venetian Red is your perfect red lipstick with orange undertone , leans warm.The lipstick and liner both are so smooth and creamy to apply.  Th silver lining glow eye shadow is so soft and looks beautiful . It does have shimmer, so you can expect some fall out. Over all combination of these products create perfect sexy cat eye and sultry red pout.

Lets get started with the tutorial 

1- Apply a primer all over the lid as the base . I have used Urban Decay primer potion 
2- Apply Mac Dangerous curve paintpot on the lower lid with a flat eye shading brush (Brush used Coastal scents brush) or fingers
3-Apply Senna Silver Lining Glow eyeshadow on the the lid  over the mac dangerous curve pain pot with a an eye shadow brush ( Brush used Coastal scents large chisel fluff brush)
 4-Use a Darken crease with a matte black eyeshadow , I used black eyeshadow from sleek makeup original palette with a fluffy blending brush.I used a tape to get a perfect line with eyeshadow. 

5- Use a blending brush and take some of Senna Silver Lining Glow eyeshadow , and blend the edge of the black eye shadow used on the crease with it and dust some of the senna eye shadow on the brow bone to highlight (not to much).You can remove the tape after this.
6- Line your upper lash line with the Senna Pinpoint Micro Tip Liquid Eyeliner 
7-Curl your lashes & Apply Voluptulash volumizing mascara .
8-line the lower lash line with an eye pencil ,I have used Urban decay 24/7 pencil in Bourbon .
