Give your cheeks the princess treatment.
While its name may make Mama blush quite literally, Nars Cosmetics’ Blush in Orgasm has been a go-to of mine for years. Even though it’s still relatively new to the beauty scene compared to other iconic products like Pond’s Cold Cream and Revlon’s Super Lustrous Lipstick in Fire & Ice, it’s already reached cult-classic status thanks to its universally flattering shade. Since its debut in 1999, this black compact has graced makeup bags everywhere and is a must-have for makeup artists, celebrities, regular gals like you and me, and yes, even royalty.
Everyone’s favorite princess-to-be, Meghan Markle, is also an Orgasm devotee. She shared with Beauty Banter that it’s one of her top five, can’t-live-without products. “It’s a perfect rosy flush tone that brightens the face,” she explained. I like to think this is just another reason of why Markle and I should be friends: We both know the power of well-placed cheek color.
What makes its hue so interesting is that it walks the line between pink and peach, so it works on a range of skin tone’s from Markle’s olive complexion to my porcelain one. Plus, the pressed powder is infused with teeny gold flecks to create the prettiest and most natural-looking glow. Unlike other blush formulations, the shimmery color sinks into skin. Its believable finish is so good, it has me confident that Markle will walk down the aisle with it gracing her cheekbones.

What’s even better is that Nars has expanded Orgasm beyond its powdered formulation due to its popularity. They offer it cream or liquid versions as well For the girl who really can’t get enough the shade, it’s also available as a lip gloss, lipstick, illuminator, and nail polish.
