NARS Summer 2011 Limited Edition Blush Bronzer Trio Ft.Orgasm, Albatross + Laguna

Oops I did it again...

I'm on a bit of a NARS frenzy at the moment and after having missed out on last summer's LE 'So Famous' set which I still regret to this day I was determined to get my hands on this fantastic trio of some of NARS' most iconic names - Orgasm blush, Laguna bronzer and Albatross highlighter.

My SpaceNK sold out pretty sharpish, so I dashed to John Lewis and although it was a less glamorous consumer experience, I got the coveted palette, for all of £39.  

A few people have already mentioned that the packaging isn't ideal as the zipper is fiddly and the material stains.  I would have preferred just the traditional NARS packaging.

I compared the Laguna in this trio to the one on the NARS counter at SpaceNK and I kid you not - they were completely different! The one in the trio is much darker and sparklier - much more like Casino.  The sales girl agreed so it's not just my dodgy eyes!  I'm not sure if they intended to have such a colour difference, but for such a high end brand I would have expected a better degree of colour consistency.  Just something to bear in mind if you are very pale and thinking about getting this palette.


Albatross was the only product I'm new to - it comes up extremely golden on my skin, so the white powder if quite deceiving.  It's lovely for a summer glow.

I've whacked on loads so you get to see the effect...

I'm delighted with it and have used it every day since I picked it up.  It's definitely coming on hols with me this summer!

  6. I'm yet to be convinced by NARS but I like how they've got all these wearable shades in one compact that's so portable. I know NARS fans will love this!

  7. This combo looks simply stunning on your cheeks.I like NARS trios but I really do wish they would stop putting Orgasm and Laguna in all of them. But then again, I'm probably complaining because I already have these shades :)

  8. Hello et bien je trouve ca trop beau la classe!

  9. I've contemplated getting this but I don't really want Laguna so I'm going to give it a miss. It ooks gorgeous on you though!
