François Nars’s Orgasm Blush is as well known for its universally flattering hue as it is for its cheeky moniker. The shimmery peachy-pink powder proved such a success, it spawned a complete collection of Orgasm-inspired makeup, including a lip gloss, a nail polish and a complexion-enhancing “Illuminator.”
It’s gentle, inexpensive and easily available—and works like a charm, which is why this moisturizing nonalkaline, noncomedogenic and fragrance-free wash is the number-one dermatologist-recommended cleanser, period.
The makeup artist’s top-selling liner features a unique gel formula that’s not just long wearing and water resistant; it also sets in seconds and stays wonderfully smear- and crease-proof all day. No wonder one is sold every minute in the U.S.
Launched in 1971, the lash enhancer in the familiar pink and green tube (it was inspired by then up-and-coming designer Lily Pulitzer and her bright, preppy prints) is celebrating its 40th anniversary . . . not to mention its place as America’s top-selling mascara, with more than 20 million tubes sold yearly!
Arguably the most famous fragrance, this blend of rose, patchouli, iris and an aldehydic top note made its debut in 1921. The company won’t comment on sales stats, but it’s been estimated that one is sold every 30 seconds, and the folks at Chanel will confirm that it was the most popular fragrance bottle this past holiday season.
