This could also be called “Unpopular opinion” because I really don’t like this brand.
I worked for Sephora for a hot minute when Nars was getting really big, and hearing about Francois Nars skeeved me out a little bit. I don’t know if it’s because he’s French or what, but listening to him describe the ‘Orgasm’ blush was a little gross. He wanted to mimic the flush on a woman’s cheeks immediately after an orgasm. *vomit*
No one on the planet would call me a prude, but brands created or run by men who want to make it all about sex when their main demographic is young women (I’m also looking at you Too Faced)… I don’t know. I just don’t like it. Don’t we spend enough time being objectified? Does our makeup need to do it too?
And now, because Nars has completely run out of ideas for new products, he’s launching two new Orgasm products and the OG blush in limited edition packaging.
This is adding to the already bloated Orgasm line that includes the blush in powder, liquid and cream forms, lipstick, liquid illuminator, nail polish, and lip gloss.
The new products are a loose highlighter and a lip balm. Honestly, these products are pretty, and if I wasn’t completely turned off by the founder, the name and the prices, I might buy them.
But I am, so we can add these to my spring/summer anti-haul. Along with anything else Nars releases.
