Work is no place for an Orgasm (NOT what you think)


I have told ya’ll before about the fabulousness that is NARS blush and lip gloss and I have definitely mentioned before that my favorite shade is called Orgasm. This has never been weird to me in the past because I have never really said it out loud to anyone…I just go into Sephora, pick it up, buy it and wear it! Easy enough…

Well, this morning at work I made my way to the ladies room to grab some paper towels (after spilling my scalding ass coffee all over my desk/papers/pants/work phone) and there was a lady from another department standing in front of the mirror when I walked in. She commented that she liked my blush because it created a dewey look but wasn’t too over the top.

THEN she asked me what it was. Hmmmm….what to say…

So I told her it was made by NARS and that the blush and the lip gloss were the same shade. I went on to say that it is a good color for almost every skin tone and soon realized I was rambling on about it in hopes that it would keep her from asking about the exact shade. I thought I was in the clear.

NOT.

I turned to walk out the door thinking that I was safe, and she quickly asked if I knew the shade. I couldn’t bring myself to say it so I said that I didn’t know but that I had brought my makeup bag and we could go look. I rummaged around half-way hoping that I had left it at home (and deciding if I should just lie and say that I did) but finally I pulled it out and handed it to her to she could look for herself.

ORGASM. She looked at me, smiled and said pretty much nothing.

Cool.
