Nars Haul: Blush/Bronzer Duos

Don't forget to enter my contest!!

In light of summer I picked up these two Nars blush/bronzer duos at Sephora. Now they are quite pricey at $37 USD each, but I am hoping they are quite worth it. I didn't swatch them for you, because each time I did, they wouldn't show up on the camera, but they are very true to the color you can see. You can click the pictures to see them full size and get a better idea of the richness in pigmentation.


The above duo has the infamous Orgasm blush which is a peachy-pink shimmer and the Laguna bronzer which is a sheer light brown shimmer. If you don't own Orgasm already, this might be the perfect way for you to pick up both the blush and bronzer for an extra ten dollars.


The Sin blush is a berry color with specks of gold, which I am unsure of at this point. I really am not a fan of blushers with glitter in them, because it accentuates all my blemishes and makes me look even shinier than I already am, so I might like the other duo better. But the Casino bronzer is a darker brown with gold shimmer and that looks gorgeous.

There is a third duo in Hungry Heart which is a irridescent gold ivory and a pink sand with a golden sheen, but that one seems to light for my NC40 skin tone. I will report back in a week or two with a review of both and which I like better!

This looks great, I wonder if I can get it here in London? I have been wanting to try the Orgasm blush and as you said, great chance to get it with a bronzer too. You're so right about the glitter - I have a sort of congested skin and glitter seems to show up the bumpiness! I'm following your blog now - will you follow me back? I'm new to having a blog! Thanks xx

Hi there Gem! Oh I'm sure you can get Nars in London! I just followed your blog too! Thanks for commenting. I think I'm liking the orgasm blusher better, sin is a bit to glittery for me like you said!
