Ahh I have been so excited to share this review with you since day one of trying it. It is the Nars Illuminator in Orgasm. I received this sample size in an order a while ago, alongside my Narsissist Cheek palette – another love of mine.
Nars describe the product as “a collection of light-reflecting liquids that glide on to refresh and enhance the complexion with shimmering incandescence. Deceptively sheer, decidedly luminous.”
I would say that this is actually a pretty accurate description, it describes exactly what the product does. The illuminator is a golden mixture, of which you can instantly see the light-reflecting liquids. It kind of shimmers in the light but appears very scary at first sight. But, don’t let that put you off – as you can see from the third image it blends out leaving no sign of colour on the skin. Even though it looks very shimmery from my photograph, possibly too shimmery it really isn’t. It just adds that extra bit of glow to your skin, something I love in a product. Best of all, the glow lasts all day.
As to how to use it, the Nars Illuminator has a few uses. It is great to use as a highlighter, especially on the tops of your cheek bones. However, my favourite use has to be mixing a pea sized amount with my choice of base. You instantly see your foundaton become more glowy, and this reflects onto the face in a gorgeous manner.
So, what do I think? I actually wasn’t expecting to love this product as much as I do. I have been using it daily for about six weeks now, and only have a few uses left. I featured it in last months favourites, and can still firmly say I love this product. I will definitely be purchasing the full size as soon as I can.
Have you tried any of Nars Illuminator’s? Does this sound like it could be for you?
