I haven’t had official word of NARS coming to Malaysia yet, so we are still waiting. The most popular blush colour form NARS has to be Orgasm. It is truly a cult classic. Many people I know love it but I also know of many who don’t like it because they find it too shimmery or too pink.
NARS Orgasm is in fact a shimmery pink-peach shade. I say pink-peach because I think it applies on me looking more pink than peach. The peach tones are just enough to temper it so it doesn’t look too pink going on. The shade is rather medium-light so if you have fair-medium skin, I’d say it’ll show up. However, if you are tanned or have darker skintone, all you might get is shimmer. That said, I have never noticed Orgasm going on highly shimmery. For me, its just nice so I suppose its to do with your own level of comfort.
If you are on a budget or have no access to NARS Orgasm, which brand or blush colour is a NARS Orgasm dupe or lookalike? Here are a few I have compiled from my own collection.

Quite a long time ago, I wrote about my experience with The Natural Source products. In a nutshell, I was underwhelmed so I never went back to the store. In my experience, it was not just one item that bugged me, but a few so after a while, I just reckoned that it was a line that did not work for me.
Anyway, I got an email just a few days ago from The Natural Source (TNS). Apparently, they had come across my old rants and decided to clear the air. So, here is the email I received from TNS.
I told them I’d put it up so you my dear readers can make your own judgments. If it helps clear the air for you, good.
There is only so much makeup shopping a girl can do before the wardrobe needs updating too! I’m quite lucky to work in an environment where I can omit power suits and blazers in our hot Malaysian weather. Instead, I can stroll into my office looking as pulled together or as casual as I like – lucky eh?
One place I’ve frequented time and time again for clothes is a boutique in Bangsar known as People’s… Egg. I have no idea why it is called that. I reckon its named after the 2 lines of clothes available in the store – People’s and Egg I spoke to the designer/owner, Angus, once and he told me that they only sell a few pieces of each design as the rest are exported. So, I’d say it is pretty unique stuff you can find there.
People’s Egg is located in the Telawi area of Bangsar, on the same row as McDonalds and is next to the other fashion place, Blook. Continue Reading ►
I’d been playing around with all sorts of eyeliner and eye lining lately. I previously offered some tips on how to apply gel eyeliner. However, lately, I’ve been toying with tightlining, or lining under the lashes instead of over. I’ll write more about this technique later.
I came across the Guerlain loose kohl and I was intrigued. Kohl has been used by the people in the Middle East for centuries, to line their eyes and to create the dark mysterious look of the East. Apparently, it is good for the eyes which is why they use it – other than the fact it emphasizes their large eyes of course.
Guerlain came up with loose kohl in a little tube that is supposed to have the same properties that traditional kohl has and which is supposed to do the same thing that kohl does for your eyes – line them.
