With the winds nearly at gale force these past couple days in Boston, wearing lip gloss has been a challenge. These past 2 days by the time She got to work, The Beauty Bug had Orgasm coated hair. Gross. Double Ick. Think Something About Mary…
But on to the more important part – The Beauty Bug is not a fan of the coveted NARS Orgasm gloss. She just doesn’t understand what all the hype is about. Why you ask? The Beauty Bug has prepared a tidy bulleted list…
Consistency and texture
- Very thick, sticky, and a bit tacky in texture
- Dry – This surprised The Beauty Bug because one of Her favorite glosses is NARS Rose Birman gloss, which is neither dry nor thick.
- Strong orange undertones that in some lighting overshadows the pink/peach
- Very iridescent and opalescent – The Beauty Bug almost felt like she was channeling the 80′s or Her grandmother in Boca (or Magda from Something About Mary) when She had it on…
- Little to no shine
So, in short, The Beauty Bug’s world wasn’t turned upside down by this product. Don’t believe what you hear – this isn’t one of those universal colors that looks good on everyone. Then again, this isn’t the first time The Beauty Bug hasn’t shared popular opinion, and She knows that it won’t be the last.
Despite the number of awards and recognition that this product has received, The Beauty Bug will reluctantly add this to Her list of over-hyped products, and it will be in good company alongside Maybelline’s Great Lash.
What are your thoughts on this love-it or hate-it gloss?
