These NARS illuminators were released last month and lets face it I just couldn't resist. I am a really big fan of NARS blushers and Multiples, I just thing the colours, the textures and the finishes are beautiful. If we cast our minds back to when NARS first released the Orgasm illuminator I know for sure I was not the only one who felt the dissapointment. The consistency was watery,it did very little on the skin and for 'Orgasm' a shade known for suiting all skin tones it practically vanished on to mine. I don't find theres much to dislike with NARS but this was one product that I really felt let the side down.
Last month saw the rebirth of the NARS illuminator and the introduction of new shades 'Laguna', 'Copacabana', Super Orgasm' and of course not to forget the newly reformulated 'Orgasm'. WOW what an improvement, this is more of what is to be expected by NARS. The colours are gorgeous with amazing shimmer shot through them. The cosistency is light but blends beautifully. I couldn't decided between the shades and seeing as highlighting products are becoming a firm favourite I chose 'Laguna', 'Orgasm' and 'Super Orgasm'.
Laguna : Has those gorgeous warm golden tones to it, it really is more of that bronzed goddess look. It's one of the colours that has the least amount of shimmer but definetley a lot of a depth.
Orgasm : I really believe this colour is for EVERYONE! It's such a lovely mix between a pink and a coral and it has the most gorgeous pearly finish. This to me is a perfect highlight, it looks amazing swept across the cheek bones.
Super Orgasm : Probably the most glitzy of all the illuminators. Super Orgasm is a lot more pink than I expected. It also has a lot of gold shimmer to it, it may not be visible from the pics but it really is very sparkly. This one I can see myself wearing on a night out.
Copocabana is the other illuminator in this collection but was too much of an 'icy' colour for myself. It looks great on lighter skintones as it has a pretty pink pearl finish.
Here they are blended a little more out, obviously I would wear them a lot more blended than this but If I carried on blending on my hand it would end up being one sparkly mess!
Great used :
On the cheek bones, Under the arch of the brows, Alone the bridge of the nose and a little teeny tiny bit on the cupids bow of the lips.
On skin alone, Over foundation and Mixed in with foundation for that ultimate glow.
These illuminators are perfect for creating that dewy complexion that we all want as the sunnier days become more frequent.
