My first NARS products! Waaahhaaayy! I’ve been using these babies for two months now and I’m converted, I can’t wait to try out more of their products. On to the reviews –
Super Orgasm Illuminator
As you all know I do have a bit of a thing for peach/orange and shimmery things, so this illuminator is like heaven in a tube for me! I’ve never tried the famous ‘Orgasm’ powder blush before but I can’t imagine it being much better than this! This is the prettiest illuminating cheek colour I own and it goes SO well with my pale skin (I actually think this would look gorgeous on any skin colour). It gives me a lovely radiant, peach twinkle when I wear it on my cheeks and it really brightens my face. I love how it looks like a rose gold peach in certain lights, but comes to life with a dainty shimmer when in sunlight.
Even though this is only 30ml it is going to last forever as its quite pigmented so you don’t need to use much! I also like the fact that you can mix it with your foundation/primer or moisturizer for a lighter, healthy look. £21.50 for 30mls.
Pro Prime, Multi-Protect Primer SP30/PA+++
I’ve always been a bit scared of primers just for the fact that my skin is acne prone and the thought of layering yet another product onto my face makes me cringe a bit, but I’ve been using this in the morning instead of my day cream and its quite nice! I wouldn’t go as far as saying that it makes my makeup stay on longer, but the fact that it has SPF 30 in makes it a winner for me. The formula isn’t like other primer’s I have felt (silicone based ones mainly) and its texture is more like a moisturizer than something that fills in ‘fine lines’ etc. It comes out quite thick and white, but does sink in well to the skin. I also like that this is oil and paraben free AND includes anti-oxidants and anti-irritants which is good for dodgy skin like mine. I do think this is pricey – £24 for only 30mls, but if its taken place of my moisturizer and sunscreen and doubles up as a primer then I guess its not too bad.
