Nars Orgasm Illuminator - Review

Nars Orgasm Illuminator was included in the first ever GlossyBox and was one of the items I used most last Summer. As soon as the sun shone this year, out it came again and my love for it was re-ignited.

This liquid Illuminator is packed with flecks of gold, peach and pink shimmer, it can be worn alone, mixed with a primer, moisturiser or liquid foundation for subtle radiance. My preferred use for it however is to just apply it as a highlighter after applying my make up for an incredible summer 'glow' and radiance. The shade also provides a lovely warm colour to my skin tone with almost a bronzing effect, and depending on how much product I use, can give a dewy appearance.

As it is a liquid product, If you do use it as a highlighter it is important not to use it after powder as it will wipe away the powder makeup, for best results use only with other liquid products or apply before powder blushers.

This really is a beautiful 'warm' highlighter, ideal for the Summer months when you may have a warmer tone to your skin. The peachy shade provides a more 'natural' and golden luminous appearance of a healthy glow as opposed to the cooler toned highlighters that are on the market.

It has a really pleasant fragrant orange scent and it blends in nicely if you just want a subtle radiance, but as mentioned before I prefer to use it in more dramatic fashion to highlight my cheek bones (much like the latest advertising to accompany this product!)

This Summer the Illuminator has undergone a makeover with new packaging and the addition of 3 new shades  to alongside the original Orgasm Illuminator.

Laguna - Golden Bronze Hue

Super Orgasm - Peachy Pink with Gold Glitter

Copacabana - Pearlescent Sheen

Nars Illuminator costs £22 for 30ml
