The NARS Orgasm Tour Bus | Exploring

Thanks to my blog, I have been blessed with many opportunities, all of which I am incredibly grateful for. One of my favourites so far has got to be this post! I was recently given the opportunity to visit the NARS Orgasm #WhatMakesYouBlush tour bus alongside one of my newest and favourite-est (not a word, sorry) blogger friends, Nati. We realised that the event was on very last minute, so I rushed to get out of my pyjamas, get my makeup on and into Birmingham City Centre for the evening. As we were in town early, we had a cheeky browse in the Zara sale before heading over to Eat. for a good old catch up!

The Nars Orgasm Collection

The tour bus was full of the new NARS Orgasm Collection, which consists of twelve items including:
♡ The Orgasm Satin Lipstick.
♡ The Multiple – Orgasm (haha lol).
♡ Orgasm Illuminating Loose Powder.
♡ Orgasm Afterglow Lip Balm.

I’ve been a fan of the NARS Orgasm blush for a long time, as I think many of us have. Therefore, I couldn’t have been happier to have a gawk at all of the new products. I adore the look of the new lipstick as it has a satin finish, which is my favourite! Unfortunately I decided not to purchase it, given the recent decision by NARS to sell in China (which means they are no longer cruelty free). I’m really heartbroken by this choice as I adored the brand. Their products are expensive, though I cannot deny that but you really do get what you pay for! For the long time, dedicated Orgasm Blush fans out there – there is also a limited edition version of the blusher and it’s supersized. If you purchase that, you won’t run out for a long while!

There were some super cute additions to the event too, for example when you signed up to their newsletter you were given a key to try and open a box located at the front of the box. If you can open the box successfully, you’ll win a prize! Unfortunately neither me or Nati won and so, what the prize actually is remains an elusive mystery. But, it was super fun and exciting nonetheless!

Meeting Anna (@theannaedit)

An absolutely wonderful added bonus of this trip was that we both had the pleasure of meeting Anna, aka The Anna Edit. Anna was joining NARS on their tour throughout the country and we both couldn’t wait to meet her. She was so warming and we had a lovely chat about blogging, and the age old difficulty of answering the question

“So, what do you blog about?”

There were so many questions that I wanted to ask but unfortunately we ran out of time. Any excuse to meet her again if the opportunity comes up, hey? She is genuinely so lovely, I can’t imagine how scary it must be to have a queue of people wanting to talk to you! A huge thanks to Anna and the NARS team for making our quick tour and chat so welcoming. Also, an even bigger thanks to Nati for reminding me to come and being such fantastic company!

    Now I’m not one to complain (lie) but where are the swag bags? Come on NARS! Also, how sad that they’ve made the decision to move to achina. I do hope they reconsider!

      Ha ha thank you Tiffany!

      Me too. It’s a real shame because I do love the brand otherwise!

    This is GLORIOUS! Congrats on meeting Anna, she’s such a huge inspo! You’ve come so far because you’re blog & writing is incredible❤️ Quickly question, what’s your top product from Nars?

      Aww thank you so much Beckie, you’ve made my day!

      I’d say my favourite was the NARS Laguna Multiple Stick. I’m just looking for a CF dupe now! 😁

    It looks like such a nice event to attend, you were so lucky. I’m just starting out on my blogging journey and hopefully I get some opportunities soon 😊
    Good on you though for sticking to your values and not investing in a brand that isn’t cruelty-free!! Sometimes it’s easy to get swayed!

      Thanks so much Jazz! It really was a fab event! This one was open to the public, so don’t wait around to be invited! ❤

  13. August 12, 2018 / 9:39 pm

    This looks like such an awesome event. I’m glad you were able to go, and it sounds like you had lots of fun! What an opportunity.

    I’d heard so many things about NARS, and for a long time, it seemed like they were firm favourites in the cruelty-free makeup market, so it’s a shame that they’ve made the decision to go out and sell in China.

      Thanks so much Rebekah! ❤

      That’s why I’m so gutted, it would’ve been perfect for me if they were still CF!

    It’s so cool that you got to check out the NARS tour bus! Love that they decorated everything to align with their cute branding. It’s always nice to meet other bloggers in person – glad you had a great time out there!
