I have been using the NARS Orgasm and Laguna Blush / Bronzer Duo everyday since I posted the NARS mini haul in February and I have been loving the products so much that I decided it's time to share some swatches and review.
NARS Orgasm is described as a "peachy pink with golden shimmer".
When I did my research before purchase, a lot of people have mentioned this blush have big chunks of glitter which made their faces looks like a disco ball and there's also people who says Orgasm doesn't show any color on their skin.
I personally really like NARS Orgasm, the blush shows up more as a pink shade on my NC25 skin tone. I like that it's buildable, easy to apply and blend, and it's long lasting. Usually last me more than six hours. The blush does not appear to have big chunks of glitter on my face like some people claims (hmm could they be exaggerating it?!), it does appear to have a bit of golden shimmer, showing a natural glow on my cheeks.
I am a bronzer newbie, I have always been afraid of using bronzer as I have imagined it would look weird on me and if I don't blend it well it may look like I can't apply makeup and people will laugh at me?! Lol! Hmm I guess bronzer just gives me a little pressure sometimes.
I still don't know how people contour so well! I am still learning ~ I like to use NARS Laguna as an all-over-face bronzer and I like that Laguna gives me a natural sun-kissed look without looking like I have too much bronzer on, too tan or too shimmery. This bronzer is buildable, easy to apply and blend.
My favourite part of using this bronzer is after applying an Asian brand BB cream, my face tend to look a little ghost white. After applying a little amount of NARS Laguna, it instantly gave me that glow.
I am starting to understand why everyone in the makeup world raves about NARS products, the brand may be expensive but their products are amazing and well worth the price. Like the NARS Orgasm and Laguna duo, this is my first NARS product and I am already hooked on the brand! Hoping to try out more of their products in the future. ^^
I love everything about NARS Orgasm and Laguna, from their sleek packaging to their lovely products. Only downside is, since this is a mini size blush / bronzer duo, I feel like there's not a lot of space for me to swirl my brush around; I use Real Techniques duo-fibre face brush for the bronzer and Sigma F40 large angled contour for blush.
