NARS Duo: Laguna and Orgasm Review

Hi Guys! 

So I am probably the last blogger in the world to hop on to the amazing band wagon of NARS products but better late than never! This is a NARS Duo with a Laguna bronzer and an Orgasm blush. I got it at Sephora for 41 dollars. I've heard really good things about both products and I didn't want to buy the big one of each for $32 dollar so I decided with the duo to start with. Honestly I'm glad I got the duo because its great for travel




(Top: Laguna, Bottom: Orgasm)

Packaging: I love how the NARS packaging looks. It looks really expensive (which it is) and sleek. Also I love how large the mirror in it is. However, the rubberish material attracts all the dirt in the world. I keep it in a separate zipper section in my purse when I travel because I hate how dirty it gets but I can get over this issue because of how wonderful the product is. 


Laguna Bronzer: 

Color: Laguna looks a lot more intense in the pan than it really it. It is a very natural bronze color. You can't really see in the pan but in the swatch you can see that it has some nice shimmer to it but it isn't overwhelmingly shimmer. 

Formula: The formula of Laguna is probably my favorite thing about it. It goes on so smoothly and easily. It blends really is and never leaves your face looking muddy or heavy. 

Pigment: The pigment of this bronzer isn't the greatest but because it's so buildable it works out fine. I like this more for an all over the face bronze look but if you're looking for a contouring bronzer, there are better ones out there. 

Finish: I am actually in love with the finish of this. It gives you a healthy glow that isn't shiny. I use it all over my face after putting on my Benefit Hello Flawless foundation but before my Rimmel Stay Matte powder. You can still see the glow through the powder and it just looks so nice!

Orgasm Blush:

Color: Orgasm is a beautiful subtle pinky peach color with gold shimmers in it. The gold shimmer aren't overwhelming and give your cheeks a nice happy glowy look. They aren't chunky which is amazing because I hate blushes and bronzer with huge chunks of shimmer in them that just looks cheap. 

Formula: The blush formula is very similar to the bronzer. It is smooth and blendable which is amazing! I love when you don't have to fight with the product to get it to go on your face. 

Pigment: The pigment of Orgasm is amazing. I honestly only need one swipe across my cheek and that's it! It is more on the sheer side of the spectrum but I think it looks so much better sheer than when you try to build it up. 

Finish: Orgasm gives you a very natural looking cheek with a hint of shimmer. I think it is especially lovely for summer time when you want to look sun kissed. 

Overall, I think they are both great and I can see why they are beauty blogger cult products! 

Have you tried them out? What did you think?
Lots of love,

  2. I've never tried Nars products before, I've wanted to for awhile because everyone raves about how amazing the products are but I could never justify the price. I might try see if I can get my little hands on the duo like you did :D

  3. Nars Orgasm is such a nice blush colour for Summer - I really do think it's worth paying the money for these products as they seem so good.

  7. Great post! I have the full size Laguna, and then Orgasm Blush/Albatros Highlighter Duo. I always get a bit scared using them though as they come out really shimmery on me!
