Nars Orgasm Illuminator

Nars Orgasm, is one of those cult beauty products that everyone seems to know about – beauty junkies and non-obsessives alike. It is said to be the perfect, suits all shade, that gives that perfect ‘afterglow’ effect that is supposedly oh-so-flattering.

Personally, I’m not an orgasm fan. That sounds wrong, but remember I’m talking about make-up! I don’t think it suits me, maybe I’m too pale and not a fan of strong blush looks, maybe I’m just applying it wrong. I don’t know, I just don’t think it’s all it’s cracked up to be.

But, before I get too anti-Nars orgasm I am extremely intrigued by the Nars Orgasm Illuminator that is to be launched this year. I love glowy liquid highlighters and this does look rather lovely. Described as ‘a complexion enhancer that makes skin look instantly refreshed, radiant, and glowing.’ – which means I pretty much need it, as this is ultimately my goal in applying make-up.

This isn’t out yet in the UK – has anyone international got their hands on it? Is it as amazing as I am imagining?

    meh, the more a product is hyped the more of a let down it will be! I will be heading up to selfridges on the launch tho =D xx

    Interesting! Yeah, I hear ya. I swatched Orgasm once and thought it was way too shiny, so I moved on!

    I’m also intrigued by this product, even though I’ve passed on Orgasm, Super-Orgasm, and other Orgasmy products from NARS. I read somewhere that the shade will be a blend of pink, peach and gold, which sounds just delicious!
