NARS Blushes: Deep Throat, Orgasm, Super Orgasm, Torrid, and Mounia

Happy Friday, readers! NARS week will continue into next week*, with one more day of powder blushes and two more of cream blushes. But I was saving NARS’ most famous for today.

Orgasm is gold and pink (well, peach-pink), with the emphasis on the gold. Click on the image to view it at full size — can you see the gold sheen? Orgasm doesn’t go with all skintones, and some folks dislike the sparkle. Deep Throat is kind of the same idea (warm pink with gold), but the emphasis is on the pink. Pale people who didn’t like Orgasm might want to give Deep Throat a try.

Super Orgasm is like Orgasm, but more so: more pink, more pigmented, and the sparkles are larger (though you may be able to blow or tap these off your brush before they hit your cheek).

Torrid is definitely in the same family as these three, but more intense. In one swipe, it looked similar to the others, but as I layered the color (this is a very heavy representation), it turned more red.

They’re only light compared with other NARS blushes. Deep Throat (my favorite of the NARS line) is one of my most pigmented blushes, and I have to remember to apply with a light hand. These also all have sparkle. If you like peach-pink blush but find these too pigmented, or you don’t like the sparkle, you’ll have to choose another brand.

NARS, blush, swatches, MouniaI apologize for lumping Mounia in with today’s photos. It really belonged in yesterday’s group, but I couldn’t fit it on my arm. Believe me, you and I both wish I were taller (with proportionately longer arms). Mounia is maroon (or cranberry?) with maroon sparkles.

* You know, because Nars is farther from the sun than Earth. So a Nars week is longer than an Earth week. Yuk yuk yuk.

    >You are awesome! I stumbled onto your blog while searching for MAC e/s swatches. I’m actually trying to find dupes for the two darker shades from the Dior Incognito quint (unfortunately the Dior irritates my eyes). I didn’t identify a perfect match, but I found some new products I *must* try.

    Looking forward to your next swatches. I wonder if Tarte Cheekstains would swatch/photograph well. Love these.

    Thanks for the fantastic resource of information!

    >Karla, you are amazing! First; let me say thanks for posting this! From what I can tell Deep Throat is so dark, it won’t be the peachy colour I hoped for. It is darker than Orgasm? I think Orgasm sometimes comes off as a tad too dark on me so I don’t want anything darker.

    Hi Karla – I keep coming back to your swatches bc you do a fantastic job & they appear the way they would on me – so you’ve helped me through many a decision. Question for you re: Nars Super PRgasm blush. I absolutely love it on my skin but I hate the glitter. Is there anything, in your experience, that is a similar shade with less chunks of glitter? Price is not an issue. The glitter is… Thanks in advance!
