20 years of ORGASM. And to celebrate, The Icon is Turned On!

Twenty years ago, NARS gifted us with the most beloved, the most iconic of all blushes: The Orgasm. In 2019, lucky us, there’s a full collection being released inspired in this cult classic and timeless shade. NARS just released a limited-edition line of four products (including our beloved blush) in shiny peachy pink packaging. The new collection is described as being designed for maximum experimentation: “It’s Orgasm from every angle.”

There are four exciting ways to achieve its iconic glow. The sultry lineup includes a sensational Oil-Infused Lip Tint that stimulates lips with a surge of hydration and a wash of the iconic peachy-pink hue, alongside a Liquid Highlighter that arouses cheeks with a dewy, illuminating finish. Together with an ultra-sensorial Multi-use Cream Palette and an oversized Orgasm Blush, for an even bigger glow. The collection is simply exquisite. Breathtakingly Gorgeous.

The timeline our Beauty Editor’s can’t forget.


Back in 1999, Francois Nars created a gold-flecked, peachy-pink blush and called it Orgasm “I actually first created the name, then the shade. I wanted something shocking,” he said in many interviews.
