The NARS Illuminator

Along with my NARSissist Palette, I received a free sample. Not the most exciting thing when it comes to online orders, but sometimes, you can find a gem. I have never really been a fan of the dewy skin look, I have always opted for the extremely matte look, but over the past 6 months, highlighters, illuminators and glowy products have basically been staples in my makeup routine.
The NARS Orgasm Illuminator fell into my hands, and right into my makeup collection, collecting dust, until last week. I was in my room, messing around with my oh-so dull makeup routine, as you do. I reached into my basket full of beauty products, and picked this up. Swatched it on the back of my hand, and nearly had a heart attack! I thought that this was a blush when I first received this (in cream form) and therefore disregarded it. I instantly grabbed my stippling brush, and started dotting the illuminator all over my cheek bones to get that almost wet highlight, then cupids bow, bridge of nose etc. It gives a beautiful sheen on the skin, with a hint of colour to create that fresh, luminous skin look. Keep an eye out for this product when you're next searching the NARS counters, because it's one to die for!
