Would You Buy It? NARS Orgasm Illuminator

Happy Monday chickets!

NARS Orgasm Illuminator X 1

Today the Muse is simply gagging over the joys of NARS Orgasm Illuminator. It’s already in my cart awaiting my credit card to click and ka-ching it’s way out of check out over at Sephora.

Question is….

Would you buy it?

I admit I’m ever so slightly obsessed with the NARS Orgasm shade. Some people think it’s a little too hyped up but I honestly love it’s peachy, pink finish and was delighted about the new NARS Orgasm Illuminator.

I don’t like cream highlighters or illuminators of any kind but I think I might be able to get on board with this. We shall see what I think when I get my sweaty little hands on it.

For now I’ll leave you with some of the promo photos from the NARS Spring 2010 Collection. Christina Aguilera also sported Orgasm Illuminator last night at the Golden Globes but it’s very subtle isn’t it? I expected a bit more pop! I do like the way it looks on the NARS model however but I’m more an apple of the cheeks kinda girl myself and this appears to be applied a bit more dramatically for my tastes. However, it does look considerably brighter and more lovely on the model than it did Christina.

I’m interested to see if I’ll like it. It’s available now from Sephora for $29 and you can multitask on body as well as face!

NARS Orgasm Illuminator, Would You Buy It?

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

  • Lara Debono

    well……sigh……….erm……….I was very undecided but now……..OOOOOOOKKKKKKKKKKKK that’s another one up my stash!!! No buy budget new year resolution. . .down the drain and never felt more comforted!!LOL!!

  • Marina

    I love it on Christina…I don’t think I’d buy it, but it looks nice. I’m good with my normal highlighting products, but I don’t highlight often enough to justify buying this.

    • the Muse

      hey marina I rarely highlight but I was hopeful it would work great as a blush :-D!

  • Kristina

    I love Nars Orgasm blush but I’ll pass on this one for now. I have Clinique’s Up Lighting Illuminator in Natural 01 and I’m loving that for when I want a bit of shimmer or glow.

  • brandon

    If it aint too chunky monkey as far as the glitter goes like some other liquid/cream highlighters, im on board too πŸ™‚

    OMG this post just reminded me, I NEED to get the Midnight Cowboy lotion form Urban decay! lol

    • the Muse

        • the Muse

          lol brandon. they need mood lighting and soft romantic music at Sephora to put us in the mood never mind lotion πŸ˜€

  • Jess

  • jones

    i dnt think ill buy it-im more of a powder person. im still in love with my soft n gentle msf lol

  • Laura

    I love my Benefit High Beam. I used it with my MAC Cantaloupe blush and it was to die for. In the summer I mix it with my foundation

  • SoVeryFabulous

    I would definitely buy this, it’s pretty high up on my wishlist right now, but I’m waiting to check it out in the store.

  • Lola

    This is pretty off-topic, but I just have never liked or been able to buy (support) Nars after finding out that they test on animals. Their products look gorgeous, but I just can’t justify giving money to a company like that when there are plenty of other who DON’T test on animals πŸ™

    • the Muse

      hi lola I fear I don’t pay attention to these things on occasion when purchasing makeup/ I didn’t realize nars tested on animals.

      • Noussie

        Sorry to butt in but i felt the need to step up and defend my favorite brand πŸ˜›

        NARS does NOT test on animals, being a big animal lover i wouldn’t support them if they did (i’d still be in love tho :P)

        This was taken directly from the NARS website :

        NARS and Animal Testing:
        NARS Cosmetics does not and never has conducted any animal testing of any kind. Thank you.

        Hope this clears it up πŸ˜€

          • Lola

            Sorry, I should have clarified…NARS themselves DO NOT, but were bought by a company that does. Sorry for the confusion!! πŸ™‚

          • the Muse

            thanks for the info Lola. I guess this doesn’t really apply considering NARS is not testing on animals even if it was purchased by another company πŸ™‚

  • jackieg02

    Nah, I don’t think I’d buy it. I do have Orgasm blush, but its not my fave color to use, on myself. On others I think it looks great.

    • the Muse

      i love o blush jackie and super o πŸ˜€ I still wanna try this though so tempting grrr!

  • Tina Matuchniak

    Yes, definitely! I used to use Benefit’s hollywood glow, but can’t seem to find it anywhere now πŸ™ Definitely a must try.

    BTW if you prefer mineral/powder illuminator, Laura mercier does one called candlelight that i really like.

    • the Muse

      tina they really phased out alot of the older benefit goodies πŸ™ I think they might be going through a package revamp!

      Must check the LM one out thanks πŸ™‚

  • mercedes

    ugh,call me lame but whats the diffrence between an illuminator and highlighter?
