Few beauty products stand the test of time, but one little black compact is still flying off the shelves almost 20-years after its initial release.

Yes, it's the blusher that launched a thousand sexy makeup shade names - NARS 'Orgasm' Blush.

First released in 1999, the peach-pink blusher has become a cult classic and to celebrate, the brand have given it an XL makeover for the modern age.

This spring, the original Orgasm is being offered in a limited edition oversized compact, featuring a pin-up inspired box, priced at £28 from narscosmetics.co.uk from 1 June.

Over the years, the iconic blush has also been given a multi-faceted makeover in the form of a sparkling shade, the aptly titled Super Orgasm, along with lip glosses, illuminators and a multi-use stick.

Loved by celebrities like Kim Kardashian, Orgasm quickly became the number one selling blusher in America due to its ability to flatter all skin tones.

Speaking about the idea for the product's provocative name, NARS founder François Nars said: "I actually first created the name, then the shade - I wanted something shocking.

"I want people to remember the names and you can't forget this one."

The reason behind the brand's relaunch? If you've never experienced Orgasm, this is "a great reason to try it".
