Beauty Review: Summer Flush With Nars Blush/Bronzer Duo!

I don't know what it is, but every time I open up a new Nars product my heart does a little flip. The combination of beautiful colours, fantastic textures, and sleek and chic packaging will do that to you. When I first learned of the "everyone must have this" Orgasm blush, I just had to have it. It was pretty, but took a few swirls to show up on me. I kept it anyways because I knew it would be gorgeous on my fair-skinned clients - and it is. I had heard rave reviews of Laguna blush but wasn't in a hurry to buy a new bronzer.

When I had the chance to try Nars Blush/Bronzer Duo in Orgasm/Laguna ($37 USD) I was excited, but knew I probably wouldn't use Orgasm on myself. Laguna bronzer is ideal for fairer skin tones, but the golden bronze shimmer (no orange muddy mess) actually shows up on me. It seems the only place I'm getting sun on my face is my nose so the rest of me is pretty fair. Sin/Casino blush/bronzer duo is better for darker skin tones and would probably work on me too. I decided to give Orgasm another try and this time the peachy-pink shimmer actually showed up on me. Using Laguna as my base deepened the blush colour and gave me a beautiful summer flush. My skin looks bronzey and glowy just the way I like it. I love the sleek compact with the huge mirror - thin enough to keep in your purse and the mirror is big enough so you can see your whole face. I also love having a combination of blush and bronzer together. When you're in a hurry, you want everything in one place and don't want to carry a lot around with you. Convenience and the perfect summer flush? A match made in heaven! Happy shopping!
