NARS Super Orgasm Lip Gloss

Here's a review that you won't see often in my blog: a lip gloss.  For some reason, I stopped wearing lip gloss years ago.  I can see it on someone else and think it looks pretty.  And lip gloss photographs gorgeously.  However, I can't keep myself from touching my face unconsciously so lip gloss always ends up on my hands and arms.  And when I walk outside and the wind blows my hair in my face, the feeling of hair stuck on my lips is unbearable.  I also dislike having to reapply it so often. I actually only own one lip gloss besides this one.  I threw away the other ones I used to own.

Silly rant aside, I decided to buy a high-end lip gloss to see if they were much different than drugstore lip glosses.  I thought a better formula would get me to wear lip gloss more often.  It didn't.  Super Orgasm is a gorgeous lip gloss.  It's the best lip gloss I've tried so far, but I'm still simply not a lip gloss girl.  Plus, drugstore lip glosses have improved their formula a lot over the years.  Back then, most were terribly sticky.  Not anymore. 

Product Overview
  • Amazing formula: non-sticky and very comfortable to wear
  • Gorgeous color!  Sheer pink with gold glitter
  • The glitter is very fine, it never feels gritty
  • Lasts 2 or 3 hours on the lips
  • Looks great over nude lipstick
  • The pink base is sheer so you can layer it over many colors
Bare lips (top) and Super Orgasm (bottom)

In summary, I found the formula and wear of NARS lip gloss to be very impressive.  Super Orgasm is a great color for layering.  If you love lip gloss I definitely recommend NARS because they have some great ones.  Since I rarely wear lip gloss, I would splurge on something else and get drugstore lip glosses instead since they are great quality as well.

  3. This is a super pretty lip gloss and I've heard so much about it, it seems to be almost as much of a cult product as NARS Orgasm blush. I'm the same as you, I used to always wear lipgloss in my early teens, clear lipstick to be exact. And then I just grew out of it. For the same reasons as you it seems, I just found it so irritating! I've started wearing lipgloss more though as I have a few from Clarins and think they are so lovely! xo

    1. I'm glad you feel the same :) I thought I was being overly finicky. Lip gloss seems so high maintenance but I wish I wore it more often. Especially now for the holidays because the glossy and glittery effect will look great in pictures. Thanks for commenting xx

  4. This is a gorgeous shade but I too have moved on from glosses. I just hate when my hair gets stuck on my lips during a windy day then leaves a glossy trail all over my face. Although now that it's getting warmer here in Australia lipsticks are too heavy so I might have to move back to glosses again.

  6. This is gorgeous! In the tube, it's possibly the most beautiful lip gloss I've seen! I'm just like you- I only own three glosses. I wore one yesterday to see if my opinion had changed, but it was only justified when I constantly found myself pulling my hair away from my face. Boo. :p xx

  7. It's very pretty in the container! I'm not a lip gloss girl myself either, and the only one I have is the mini Naked one that came with the Naked 2 palette :P I don't see myself wearing it, but I do see myself buying it for decoration~

  9. This looks like a very nice lip gloss, however, just like you, I'm not a lip gloss person so I don't really see myself buying it... But who knows! xx

  15. I dont know how to avoid lipgloss from pooling in the fine lines in my lips. I guess my lips just aren't very plump when I'm not hydrated but I found sheer or semi sheer lip glosses to just look disgusting unless I have some sort of lipstick underneath.... Ugh :( I want to try more high end glosses like this but I just have had such a bad history....
