I wanted to compare these two NARS Illuminators for you guys. They look similar, but looks can be deceiving!
Above: Super Orgasm Illuminator
Above: Left: Super Orgasm Right: Orgasm
Above: Orgasm Illuminator mixed with liquid foundation
Nars Illuminator available at Sephora here.
The Regular Orgasm shade is not as pigmented. When I blend it into my skin is leaves little to no color. The result is more of a sheen, which can be achieved using many products, so to me this isn’t worth the money. On a positive note, I mixed it in with some of my liquid foundation (seen above) and it gave me a nice dewy finish. People with fair or dark skin tones might see different results. Unfortunately it just didn’t work out for me. Good thing I got the sample!
The NARS Super Orgasm Illuminator on the other hand, is more pigmented and makes a noticeable difference on my skin. Its more peachy in tone and has more of a metallic finish. Its kind of hard to explain but it just stands out on the skin more, unlike the regular orgasm shade. Its looks absolutely gorgeous on the collar bone, shoulders, and cheekbones. Overall I think its worth the money!
What do you think? Do you own any of the NARS Illuminators? Want to get any? Let me know! xoxo
