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!
