Nars mini orgasm set $29


Once again Nars is doing these mini sets that are a good price considering their other products where for instance a lipstick alone is sold for $34, these minis are a good way for you to try the product and see if you like it, before being stuck with a full size product that may take a long time to finish and if you don’t like you will be definitely stuck with it. The color of the lipstick and gloss is so adorable and I already have the peach color mini orgasm blush. The name however is something that I am not fond of. With many people such a name for a product could be a bit offensive. The cost of this trio is $29 on Nars website. What do you think? Is this something you could see yourself buying and wearing?

Nars writes:

Instant gratification. A three-way flirtation. Experience the iconic Orgasm with a mini face and lip trio to indulge your senses. Cheeks get flushed with the universally flattering Orgasm Blush, the perfect blend of peachy pink and golden shimmer. Lips feel the rush with satin subtlety in Orgasm Lipstick, featuring a blend of conditioners and antioxidants to hydrate, nourish and protect. Top it off with Orgasm Lip Gloss, for smooth, sensuous shine in a non-sticky finish. For thrill seekers only.


When it comes to lipstick purchase, whether it is in tube or palette format, we women always feel drawn to lipsticks and want to try them all. This palette is very nicely created in terms of packaging and some of the colors are good but the palette of color and shade is made so that everyone can use it, which translates for the individual using it, as only a few colors will be used and others will be left out.

For instance if you have pale skin, you can use the colors up to the red and the color after the red, the other 2 dark colors would appear more lovely on someone with dark skin. You could of course use those two colors to mix them with the lighter shades, and create new shades.. but you are not expanding your color palette.. you don’t have orange or fuschia pink or blue pink. The colors seen here are pink/beige and red/bordeaux and a black lip color which can be used to darken any shade but is not appealing on its own.

The lip brush that it comes with is mediocre, because the size and length of the bristles is not the best. Once you use top quality brushes, such as Japanese brushes, you can notice all sorts of anomalies on other brands. Nars’s forte is not brushes, it is colors for eyes and lips.

Let’s see how sephora describes this palette which retails for $52. On the nars website, you can see a video of a male makeup artist applying the red lip color on a young model with black hair. The model is gorgeous and the color appears very pretty on her. Would like to see occasionally mature women as well, being used as models.

Nars writes: Seductive lips. Sinful statement. This fall, unapologetically audacious color is too hard to resist. Indulge lips in a palette of creamy, full-coverage shades from tempting nudes to the most brazen berry—inspired by the seven deadly sins. Give in. Go bold. It feels too good not to.

Sephora writes:

What it does:
Indulge in a tempting range of shades—from brazen berries to smoldering neutrals—inspired by the seven deadly sins. This versatile lipstick palette will take you from day to date.

Audacious Lipstick is so shamelessly seductive in touch and texture—the sensation is audacious. Unadulterated luxury glides across skin like satin with single-stroke, and delivers full coverage. Bold, ultra-saturated color feels hydrating and stays put—it does not bleed or feather. Bold by design, it’s so shamelessly seductive, it’s sinful.

Poison Rose Lip Powder Palette by Nars


From time to time, I check various website directly to see what they have created.. Nars has created a palette for lips, that is excluded from the pro discount, that appeals to me. This is the photo above. The colors are a mixture of pink, orange and peachy pink with beige. The palette retails for $49 on Nars website and is called

Poison Rose Lip Powder Palette

What do you think? Is it something you would pay $49 for? Is the price reasonable? What makes a lip color so pricey? just the brand name?

Here is how this palette is described on the Nars website:

An innovative lip palette includes a creamy primer and precision tip brush to paint lips in four delicate shades of petal pinks, rose reds and poisonous purples. The lightweight formula provides instantly buildable, blendable color to achieve an array of softly diffused matte lip looks.

Eclectic. Eccentric. Enigmatic. This summer, flowers go free-spirited with famed fashion designer Erdem Moralioglu’s captivating mix of originality and oddity. Modern, unexpected shades and petal-soft textures meet the British visionary’s signature floral aesthetic, creating an exclusive, custom-designed collection that flourishes with feverish femininity. Lips feel the rush. Cheeks get flushed. Eyes mesmerize. When fashion goes full bloom, expect the unexpected.

Did you know that lipsticks are sold more than any other makeup product? I even read once that in times of war and stress, people buy more lipstick than in normal times.. apparently this happened in England during WW1 or 2.. hmm.. why is that? Do we know..? Why would someone buy lipstick when they barely have money to eat, is it maybe because they don’t have much time to live and they can die any moment so they would rather enjoy life or what is left of it..

So what is lipstick.. or rather when was it created. Let’s see what we can find out.. oh check this out !

Ancient Sumerian men and women were possibly the first to invent and wear lipstick, about 5,000 years ago. They crushed gemstones and used them to decorate their faces, mainly on the lips and around the eyes. Egyptians like Cleopatra crushed bugs to create a colour of red on their lips.

Crushing bugs huh..? No thanks.. but then how do I know what I am putting on my lips..? Scray thought. I don’t want to go there. The one I am showing you in this picture is the one by YSL called wood on fire, and the number is 214. It is a matte color, in a shade that imitates lip color so it will enhance the color of your lips and take it a notch up but not appear too bold or vibrant on your lips.

What is your favorite lipstick color and most importantly, what brand do you like? My favorite is fluctuating between the following brands at the moment: Marc Jacobs, Dior, Givenchy, Chanel, and YSL. Hmm you are going to say they are all high end brands Amy! And I am going to say that is correct, because the colors I found in high end, I could not find dupes in the drugstore brands. What to do? I am going to enjoy using my high end lipsticks.

Swedish Lip balm Lypsyt is not to be missed!

I cannot tell you how much I am loving this cute lip balm that comes in a handy shape and format. It has a slide in button that you push and the lip balm comes out.

The other thing that caught my attention is the fact that the shape of the lip balm is oval.. so you can hold it vertical or horizontal and it will cover your lips fully!

Now let’s talk about the texture.. it is one that goes on smoothly and glides on your lips. I checked out the ingredients and it has shea butter, Swedish beeswax, and vitamins A and E among other ingredients plus of course a hit of mint that does not burn your lips or overwhelm you.. A very good product overall.

Let’s not forget the price.. It retails for only $2.80 at Walmart! I noticed it is sold also on

This company existed about 105 years ago and they were making lip balms since then. I did not know that they had lip balm back then! Check it out!

One negative: the name is too hard for me to remember it.. Maybe it means something in Swedish? I don’t know but every time I am typing it or saying the name in my mind, I am saying it wrong!

You can buy it at walmart
