Meghan Markle is a woman who knows her stuff when it comes to beauty. Before she joined the royal family, she revealed that she was a fan of many cult products loved by editors and insiders alike, from a brilliant £8.99 mascara to Nars’ iconic Orgasm blush.
Speaking to Beauty Banter while she was still starring in TV show suits, Meghan named the blusher as one of her top five ‘can’t-live-without’ products, adding that it gives ‘a perfect rosy flush tone that brightens the face.’
It’s for this reason that we’d imagine the Duchess of Sussex would be rather excited to hear that Nars Orgasm turns 20 today, and to celebrate, the brand is launching a stunning new special-edition collection that translates its pigmented, glowy colour and shimmery finish into a wider range of products.
The 20th anniversary range includes an eye, lip and cheek palette, liquid highlighter and an oil-infused lip tint, as well as a rose-gold pan of the original complexion-brightening powder blush. It’s currently exclusive to Selfridges and NARS boutiques, but will be available nationwide from 15 June, so if you miss the first drop, all is not lost.
It’s not the first time that the brand has expanded its Orgasm collection – in June last year, it caused a frenzy after releasing an Orgasm Afterglow lip balm, a nourishing product inspired by the same universally-flattering hue that sold out in just 24 hours and racked up subsequent waiting lists of thousands.
Whether you’re a subtle make-up aficionado or like to layer, Nars’ Orgasm will always add an illuminating glow to your final look. Here are the pieces to get your hands on before the latest limited-edition run flies out of stock too.
