Name: Nars Orgasm Lipstick
Price: $40
What it does: A sheer, conditioning lipstick to give your lips a satin finish
Key ingredients: I quote: “A patented blend of conditioners and antioxidants”
Available from: mecca.com.au

How it feels/smells/looks 

This lipstick has a hydrating feel and isn’t drying in the slightest. It’s very sheer, satin lippy, making the final colour quite subtle.

Why I like it

It looks like a fairly natural shade of pink until the light catches it. Then your lips go all sparkly mermaid.

Areas for improvement 

This is not a long-wear formula by any means. A lot of it had rubbed off by the time I finished my morning coffee.

Final comments

If you like your makeup to be illuminated, this is the perfect shade for you. It’s also nice when worn over your fave matte lippy shade to give it a slight metallic glow.

However, I was pretty disappointed to hear Nars recently confirm that it is testing on animals, in order to sell into the Chinese market. I was really tempted to deduct points based on this fact.
