Swatch, Comparison - NARS Blush Super Orgasm

Supposedly NARS Super Orgasm is an amplified version of the famous Orgasm.
Instead of the fine shimmer of the Orgasm that gives you the golden glow, Super Orgasm has gold glitters.
It is darn pretty to look at, and in this case it is also very cute being a mini.


NARS Blush Super Orgasm
(GWP mini)



Mine comes in the same size pan as the NARS single eyeshadow's.
I wish NARS would come up with a mini blush set in the future although I know too well that is not how these companies make money.




From the pan, the glitters are not so bad. I don't really mind glitters if they are done right.


The gold glitters are bigger in size but not packed so densely like the shimmer in Orgasm, so it would have given more subtle effects if the glitters translated well on skin.
But sadly, they don't!


Here is the comparison swatch.
I do not think the glitters in Super Orgasm are nice quality or multi-dimensional. It seems they are flat in shape, one side being champagne gold and the other brown, so some of them flip(?) and look like brownish dirt once applied.


Apart from the difference in finish, NARS Super Orgasm is slightly pinker in color than Orgasm (reviewed here).


I also pulled out Deep Throat which is another peachy pink blush from NARS.
Deep Throat looks more muted despite of the risqué name.




On my face, these glitters are almost invisible because they practically disappear as I blend in. A few of them usually end up on my nose or décolleté. After a while, a glow that faintly resembles the Orgasm comes through, but that is about it.
If you're worried if this blush looks too glittery on, you shouldn't be. All you get is a few bits of annoying glitters. So there is no satisfaction from getting Super Orgasm whether you're fan of pretty glitters or a glitter-hater.

One must first define what a super orgasm is, but I don't think I want to find out if it is what this blush suggests.
This mini blush now sits on my blogsale although I don't know who would want it after reading this review.


Have you tried NARS Super Orgasm blush?
Do you like blushes with glitters?

  1. OMG that's some chunky glitter I wouldn't want near my cheeks :P Thank you for the review!

    1. Hi Pau :)
      Thanks for finding me and adding me to your reading list.
      Yeah, the glitters in this are not the prettiest ones. They don't stay on, either! ;-/

  2. This one definitely is a let down for me! The glitter is too obvious and the color isn't that amazing compared to the other two! I love deep throat!

    1. Many people seem to love Deep Throat as a much better alternative to Orgasm, for example. I need to play with it more, but I think I like the Orgasm a little better. :)

  3. LOL you're one bad saleslady Lena!!! :D :D :D

    I've never really given SO a second look because even from far seems I could see those big glittery bits. I have Orgasm in a duo compact with Laguna bronzer and rarely wear it. The one I do love is Deep Throat! Also in mini form, I've worn it almost every day these past two weeks!

    Minis? I say let's boycot the regular sizes and request minis! They're too darn cute! :D

    1. Haha, what can I do? I priced it dirt cheap, so maybe..? ;D
      I really think minis are great! Most of us have trouble using up makeup products anyway. If priced right, I will be all over them. ;)

  4. I use the regular Orgasm blush, but Super Orgasm never really appealed to me. I knew that it had gold glitter in it, but I didn't realize how big/obvious it would be. O_O (LOL at selling it in your blog shop! I'm sure that there are some people out that like it though.)

    Btw, I kind of need that Deep Throat blush, like right now!

    1. On the other hand, the Super Orgasm lip gloss is much prettier than the Orgasm lip gloss. Isn't it weird? ;o
      Deep Throat is a very wearable everyday peach blush. I actually have a cheaper prettier one than DT, but I will keep mine since it is very convenient to carry around! ;)

  5. LOL hahaha, yeah I remember when this first came out and I hated it then, and still do actually.
    Deep Throat is my fave NARS blush.

    1. There are many fine quality glitters out there, too! It has to be in the right type of base as well. For some reason, I thought the SO is drier than other NARS blushes I've tried.

  6. annoying glitters, lol!
    I don't have super orgasm but I have Orgasm and I must say I don't like it.. There is something in NARS blushes that I just don't like.. I find them rather hard in texture and don't blend easily.. but a lot of people love them, so maybe I am the weird one :-D

    1. LOL. I feel like I've become a teenager who went to a party covered with glitters, you know?
      NARS blushes have harder texture than some, but SO feels even drier to me. I think it is the reformulation, but harder pressed powder is my current preference so I don't mind it. I can certainly see many others prefer softer ones, though! :)

  7. I would love to see a NARS mini blush set! I'm surprised they haven't done one already, actually. I'm always wary of shimmer and glitter in blushes for exactly the reasons you describe here--how could anyone at NARS think those big chunks of glitter were a good idea? I guess they were just that desperate to capitalize on the success of Orgasm.

    1. Should we start a petition? ;p
      I wish it was sparse and bitter shimmer rather than big chunky glitters in Super Orgasm. It would have been very pretty, actually!
      NARS brought out quite a few ugly things extending the Orgasm craze. This blush and their nail polish would be good examples. ;o

  8. I always need to get a little used to the names when talking about NARS... However, I understand what they tried to do with the glitters, it just didn't work out so well, unfortunately :( Too bad, since I find the color absolutely gorgeous! Great post xx

    1. I know! I hate the name Deep Throat, for example. It is such a pretty and almost tame peach, though.
      I agree with you that the base color of Super Orgasm is gorgeous! :)

  9. Thanks for the helpful swatches! I didn't get along with Super Orgasm- just couldn't get on board with the glitter! Deep Throat is my all-time fave, though :)

    1. Glad to hear your find them helpful. :)
      DT is very easy to wear and I am very fond of it too, although I like the Orgasm slightly better for its unique glow.

  10. I dont like glitter in blushes. I need it to look natural.
    I dont like glitters in skin care neither.
    Glitters bring sparkles, not natural lights. If i want glitters, i just use products like Guerlain Meteorits. If i need to add glitters but dont have under my hands, i can find nice glitters in eyeshadows. So for me they really dont need to add glitters in Blushes, or skin cares.

    1. Oh, I definitely don't like glitters in skincare. Some glitters is makeup, I don't mind so much. Sadly, Super Orgasm is not the case.
      And the Meteorites are my favorites as well. They all give such luminous glow to complexion. :)

  11. Hi Lena,

    I really like the color of Super O, though I'm plus/minus on the glitter. That said, you're right, it mostly does fall off!

    1. I agree! If it didn't have the glitters, I would like it so much better!
      I do like the Super Orgasm lip gloss, though. :)

  12. I think I would have loved more of NARS blushes if not for the flitters. I'd always really disliked the chunky gold glitters in both Orgasm and Super Orgasm!

    1. The glitters in Super O' is really chunky, you're right!
      I don't mind the shimmer in O' so much but do wish sometimes it was not as dense. I guess that is for the "glow" but too much for everyday. ;)

  13. Well, when NARS comes out with those 6-pan blush palettes, they're like a bunch of these minis stuck together as one item. Does that count? lol

    I hate Super O too. Someone said once you brush off all the glittery bits that it's not bad, but who's got the time?!?

    1. No, Liz..it is not the same.. Cute minis vs Ugly palette ;D
      The base color is quite pretty actually. I think I like the color better than the O' or the DT..but the glitters are just too annoying. They should reformulate this in a creamier base or use different types of glitters!

  14. hmmm. I really would still prefer Orgasm to it's super-ified version. The glitter is just too much!

  15. I think Orgasm is a pretty color but I find the glitter in Super Orgasm rather unappealing. If they were more refined, it would probably make the look more sophisticated cause glitter is just so tween to me.

    1. I totally agree with you! Super O' is a huge letdown because I really like the color itself. I do like the Super Orgasm lipgloss better than Orgasm, though. ;)

  16. That's some crazy glitter! I'm with you, I don't really mind shimmer when it's done well, but this looks a bit strange. Not sure why they decided to go for the chunky glitter pieces, which MAYBE would have work if it wasn't for the dark color. Sticking to the original O ;)

    1. Exactly! I've seen some very refined and multi-dimensional glitters as well. The glitters in Super O's are not those. ;-/

    1. It is not like NARS doesn't know how to do glitters, so it's more frustrating! For example, the gold shimmer in Oasis is so pretty yet visible. If Super O' had that kind of shimmer, I would have gone gaga over it. ;p

  18. Huh, Super Orgasm doesn't look as nice compared to the other two x

  19. I haven't swatched Super Orgasm before but thanks for showing this! I have Orgasm at home and it's not one of my to-go blushes, but now I have a better appreciation for it LOL! Deep Throat is so nice....D;

    1. Oh, yeah..Orgasm is way nicer than her glittered sister, and I actually prefer O' to DT. DT is very pretty and flattering, but not as unique as the Orgasm, in my opinion. I will review it soon, too! :D

      Delete
  20. looks like the glitters are pretty chunky. Thanks for the detailed swatch. I don't think I would pick that up if I swatch in store. I have the Orgasm and the super orgasm looks very similar and I am not a big fan of chunky glitters so that would be a pass for me.

    1. If you have Orgasm, no need to bother with the Super O'. Deep Throat is worth checking out, though. I think it is most widely loved peachy pink from NARS. :)

  21. I love NARS Deep Throat! I already have Orgasm, and wasn't really impressed with the chunky glitters on Super Orgasm. I'd get a few more NARS blushes if it weren't for their sucky rubber packaging.

    1. I thought Deep Throat was super boring, but it is pretty once worn! Some colors are just like that. Isn't is interesting? ;)

  22. I'm always so tempted to pick up the mini version of Super Orgasm when it occasionally pops up, but the glitter is what always turns me off. Not so much a fan. I love Orgasm and Deep Throat though! Those 2 and Sin are what started my NARS blush obsession.

    1. I remember I was more attracted by the other minis that came along. I mean, it is nice to experience, but Super O' is certainly not my cup of tea. On the other hand, others your mentioned are quite pretty including the gorgeous Sin! :)

  23. The small NARS blush size is so cute! When I saw Super Orgasm I got scared by the glitter chunks it had! Love Orgasm but I decided to purchase Deep Throat as it was more "muted" and less risque, quote you ;)

    1. I know! I want a individual set of them, not a palette! ;D
      I've grown to like DT more as I am playing with it along. Such a nice peachy pink. Now I see why everybody raves about it!
