NARS Orgasm Powder Blush ($40.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a brighter, light-medium pink base with warm, golden shimmer and faint micro-sparkle. It seemed slightly more sparkly than I recall past editions of Orgasm being, though I have tried probably nearing on a dozen of them in the last decade.
The texture was firmer, stiff, and drier overall, which isn’t that far from the permanent version I have, but I find NARS’ newer shade releases (within this formula) to be a lot more yielding and easier to work with. The texture is the type where it seemed to get softer with more use, and a bigger, denser brush is best for picking up and applying product. I didn’t have any issues actually apply and blending out the color, just that it was more medium coverage and buildable. It wore well for eight hours on me before fading noticeably.
