This is the best combo of bronzers and blush ever! I first suck in my cheeks by making a fish face and sweeping the bronzer in an upward motion on my cheeks. Then I smile naturally and apply the blush on the apples of my cheek. Using the MAC 168 angle blush brush.
I am a NW30 and I am asian so I have golden and reddish undertones. I have a fair to medium complextion and I have got to say it was love at first sight. To be honest I only bought it because everyone and their sister owned it and also the name of the blush is what sealed the deal! The cost of this duo is 37 dollars and with the right discount free shipping online. The quality is amazing, the bronzer is dark enough to show up and not muddy looking at all. The blush was darker than I thought it would be and was very pleased to be able to control the pigment of how bold the blush would appear by choosing how many applications of the blush I used. The price is fine simply becuase with this product you definitley get everything you pay for. Overall this is and will always be my favorite duo.
Yeah this is a pretty blush. Looks really sparkly in the case but not on the skin. Gives a nice pearly look to the skin. The bronzer is the only one I've found that doesn't make my skin look orange, but I have to be careful when applying it because its quite dark and can look dirty on my skin if there is too much on the brush.
Not sure if its worth the price tag though, I would get it off ebay, I wouldn't pay full price for this.
love on my ppp skin so portable and convenient. colors look great together.
I LOVE this bronzer duo. I have fair skin and this doesnt look orange on me at all. It is the perfect combination of colors for a nice glow
Laguna is my favorite part of this duo, hands down. I do like Orgasm, however, its a little shimmery for me. Laguna also has shimmer, but it just helps to make the bronzer not muddy looking. I used the entire pan of Laguna before I ever hit bottom with Orgasm. I'd repurchase Laguna on its own next time, but not as a combo with Orgasm. I do tend to play around with blush more often than I do with bronzer. Bronzer to me is like powder, something you just use every day as a base. Blush is like eyeshadow. Something new every day, for a new look!
Finally, I have found a great bronzer that shows up on my olive skin yet doesn't look orange or makes my face look like that of a glitter disco queen.LOL I bought the duo after falling in love with Orgasm, which really compliments my skin tone. Yes, the price is rather hefty, but my Orgasm blush lasted for 2 years, so I expect this duo will last me another two. Will continually repurchase until the day I die! haha
Upon first glance: Beautiful, tidy packaging (big fan of the rubbery feeling compact, as I have butter fingers sometimes and have dumped many a product due to being clumsy). The full mirror in the top of the compact is praiseworthy. The blush itself is very orangey looking to me (a little intimidating) with shimmer and the bronzer looks phenomenal. Upon putting a couple swipes of this on the apples of my cheeks (pretty peachy color with hardly any sparkles -- definite PLUS!) and then the light bronzer over my forehead, cheeks, and chin...I am absolutely impressed. The two as a set are such a beautiful duo...I hope NARS never discontinues this, but just in case, I've got a back up! This is HG material!
I hesitated to buy it at first because of mixed reviews here and as I can't try it first as Nars is not available where I live.But I decided I must get it when I saw photo of Mrs Beckham having it.Yeah I know I'm sad.But thank God I don't regret it.Orgasm looks great one me.I saw few pics of girls wearing it before and it looked peachy on them while on me it's more like gentle pink with a hint of peach.I'm fair so it shows up on me.When it comes to Laguna I have mixed feelings.It's great quality as all Nars products I tried but I'm afraid it doesn't look natural on me because of all that glitter.I have to wait till summer when I will be more tanned to decied whether I love it or just like it.
I'm on the edge of returning this product .. I got this one more for the bronzer. Unfortunately i'm one of those whom it gave a muddy/ dirty look rather then the beautiful sun-kissed touch , maybe its because im rather fair , this was too dark for me . Got this recently , and tried putting it on twice so far , i gave it three lippies because the second time i was by far more careful and it worked a lot better .First time was a disaster , maybe because i am so used to the Guerlain terracota sheer Blondes 01 (rub the brush on the powder, do the same on your face : voila!!) but i wanted to try this for the reviews it got here , i guess it just leaves us at the point that not every product works for everyone ...The blush( orgasm) is nice , but it is not THE blush for me either ..
I like NARS in general and this might or might not be such a nightmare ,i will have to try it a few more times and im going to edit my review then.. i have a feeling this might be better for summer ,so i will give it a little more time , but will purchase another Guerlain sheen bronzer meanwhile.
