Nars Orgasm multiple is a beautiful sheer peachy pink shade with a light gold glitter and frosty finish. It’s subtle and natural looking, and although the glitter is a bit chunky for my taste the colour is so pretty that I decided to overlook it.
The texture is cream to powder – it applies smoothly, blends effortlessly and doesn’t mess up my foundation. The colour is easy to build up and, due to the sheer formula, it’s hard to overdo. As mentioned above, in the official description, it’s a multipurpose product but since I’m not a fan of the glitter in it I haven’t tried it on my lips and eyes.
I love how this shade looks on me, the colour is perfect for a naturally flushed-looking cheeks. It also adds a lovely glow to the skin with its illuminating and highlighting finish.
The only, but essential, issue with this multiple for me is its staying power. I’m not sure if it’s the sheer formula, or how blendable it is, but it fades off my cheeks in 15 minutes. It disappears completely, leaving only the glitter I don’t like! I read many reviews where the multiples are paired with a powder blush to add intensity and longevity, but considering it’s an expensive product I expect it to do better on it’s own. It’s a shame, with a better staying power it would be a truly amazing product.
The Nars multiples retail for £30/14gr.
