This is just "meh" for me. Laguna is OK as a bronzer, I suppose. If you want to use it as a contour, it likely wouldn't work very well. It's quite sheer. Orgasm is also quite sheer, but I have many fiends who adore Orgasm as a blush. I personally find it a bit too orange and for some reason, it really emphasizes my pores. Like, really, pore-city wherever I apply it. It's weird because I always use a shimmery highlighter and I don't mind shimmery products at all. My go-to blush, which is Benefit Rockateur, is also shimmery. None of the other products I use do what Orgasm does to my pores. It's too bad, but it just doesn't work for me.

Bought on a whim at Sephora after an employee recommended trying it. I've been using these almost daily for about two months and, I have to say, I really love the formulas. They are fairly pigmented and easy to blend. The colors are super flattering and just perfect for my very fair, freckled, neutral skin. I even love the packaging. It's very simple, but well-made. The package is a suede-like, matte black plastic duo and heavy for what it is. Very smooth and soft. You'll love touching it. The only con I can find is the shimmer aspect. These are pretty freaking shimmery. I don't mind being "dewy" or even BLINDING, but they tend to emphasize pores on the cheeks. I would love, love, love if they put out matte versions of their blushers and bronzers/contours.

Well. How do I admit this, I'm a Sephora addict & I've been wanting some more NARS so I got "O"/Laguna travel sized duo which I will be replacing Laguna in some form I don't need another "O" but for $24 can't go wrong (I ended up now w 3 "O" blushes in my stash lol my original old "O," a new delux sample "O," & this new-to-me duo). If any1 was wondering I also got a set (Hot Sand/South Beach Multiple/Gold Digger lipgloss) & Dolce Vita/Cruella matte lip pencils duo set... nice haul lol the ELF duo similar to this (St Lucia) is "similar," but it's not the same. The blush in ELF is less pigmented, more pinkish, powdery, & less of the peach special sparklies stuff that makes the blush so beloved & unique; & the ELF bronzer is more muddy. I love to contour & bronze w Laguna & can't go wrong w "O" blush it's my fave blush ever. if it's feast get the O/Laguna duo, if it's famine get ELF St Lucia. I don't know how NARS does this--what sorcery is this? Punch my ticket!!

It is easy for travel, you have blush,brozer,eye shadow...I need to say, they all sheer, not that pigmented, I prefer laguna, natural, beautiful golden brown, but I think orgasum may be too glittery for me to wear everyday, though it is beautiful. I will purchase laguna itself next time instead of the duo.

First off, I hate raving about products like a total fangirl since nothing is perfect, so apologies in advance.
My skin is pretty light--not super fair but light or light-medium by most counts, so bold blushes and bronzers make me nervous. I seriously have used only the lightest of blushes before this--and have clearly been missing out.
I already had the Orgasm illuminator and love it to death (it's really easy to go as bright or faint as you want with a liquid) and kept hearing all the hype about the blush over the years and finally caved when I saw the Orgasm/Laguna duo travel size at the checkout aisle at Sephora.
Holy crap, so glad I did. These shades are so versatile and build able and somehow manage to pop on my skin without making me look like a clown. And please know that I'm an idiot when it comes to contouring--and these two together even without a pale illuminator make my baby face look like it's got some structure.
A little pricey, sure, but I've had the travel size for a couple months and have plenty still, so you don't have to make a complete splurge to give it a try. As of now, this literally is the only blush that I use.

I love the the size for travel, however it is a bit tough to get your brush in there. I find Orgasm really overrated personally, as it is a touch glittery and wish it was more of a light shimmer. The bronzer is quite nice but may not be the best shade for fair skin, but the brownish colour is easier and more natural than others and it is not yellowy orange thankfully.

I bought the travel size. At one time I had a full size pan of Orgasm blush and used it up completely. When I was in grad school, it was the only blush I wore, partly because it was flattering to my complexion (fair) and partly because I couldn't afford lots of blushes.I bought this travel duo for $24 to throw in a bag for overnights. It's compact and saves me packing two separate products. I found that in a pinch, Laguna can be used as eyeshadow as well as a bronzing powder. The peachy pink Orgasm cheek color goes onto my skin softly, so even though it looks bright in the pan, it's subtle on porcelain skin and the shimmer isn't obvious. Coral blush always helps me look more awake and healthy. Cons? It's tough to dig your blush brush into the mini pan versus the much larger standard pan of Orgasm you get for $30. Some people aren't crazy about the level of gold shimmer particles in this. On my skin it doesn't look over-the-top. $24 for the mini size of this duo is expensive, but it is NARS, and nothing in this brand is cheap. If you've been curious about Orgasm blush and Laguna bronzer, this mini gives you a chance to test it out fully to see if the colors suit you. The standard size duo is $42, and I really only bought this for trips, so I'm fine with the little one.

I fail to see the hype behind this product. I thought the blush "Orgasm" was going to be so much more exciting than it actually was. It is too glittery, which is very teenage. The bronzer itself is difficult to apply in this packaging because it is tiny in comparison to the full-sized product. I would not purchase either of these products on their own and certainly not when paired together.

Orgasm is a lovely peachy pink glow with glitter and Laguna is a gorgeous light golden brown. They are both sheer and blend/wear well. A really nice duo for a light beachy flushed look. Really compliments golden toned skin
