Anyone that knows me, knows I am the free sample queen! Any sample I get, I put to the test and lots of my favorite products have began as those little samples thrown in my bag. Nars’ Orgasm illuminator is one of them. I am a big fan of Nars and their Orgasm blush and lip gloss, so when I saw this little jewel, I was very eager to try it.
Illuminators are meant to illuminate areas of your face and decolletage. It is thinner in consistency than a cream blush, which makes it easier to blend into skin. I apply this as I would a bronzer — over cheek bones, down the bridge of the nose, chin, forehead, and collar bone. It takes a second to dry, but it is oh so pretty. The color is perfect for every skin tone — it has a gold sheen and is the perfect shade of peach. My only complaint is the slight orange-y smell, which makes sense because it is an orange-y color. I could have done without it. but it is so pretty, it doesn’t even matter.
One quick tip: Give the tube a little shake to make sure it is all blended before applying. Instant loveliness!
