NARS Super Orgasm illuminator Review

NARS Super Orgasm Illuminator
Grade: A
Purchase Price: $29.00
Purchase Place: Sephora

To the left is what Super Orgasm looked like after I blended it out on my skin a little. To the the right is just a swatch of color straight from the tube.

I saw NARS Illuminator one day when I was looking around at Sephora. I was never really into Illuminator before this however after I swatched some of the shades I absolutely had to have a NARS Illuminator in Super Orgasm. I put off purchasing it for a little while given that it was $29.00 and it just seemed a little steep for how much product you got, plus even though I loved the color I didn't know how much I would really use the product. One day while shopping this past summer I decided to go ahead and purchase it. I'm really happy that I did decide to go ahead and spend the money for it because I love the illuminator and I'm even considering purchasing Orgasm and Laguna NARS Illuminator now. The thing I love about Super Orgasm is that it looks great on my skin tone, I really love the shimmer. The glitter that Super Orgasm has in it is okay for me some days and on other days I wish I had the original Orgasm in the illuminator. Which is why one of the colors that I'm considering purchasing in the future is the Orgasm illuminator. With this illuminator you only need to use a little bit at a time so one tube should last a while. I've been applying this illuminator and very small dabs on my cheekbones, the bridge of my nose, and on occasion my brow bone. After I apply I blend out and it gives me a nice shimmery, glittery highlight. The illuminator blended well for me so no complaints there. Another thing I love about the Illuminator is that it gave me some color, as well as shimmer. I find that a lot of highlights one very popular one especially just blends right into my skin, no color and very little shimmer. Not with the NARS Super Orgasm Illuminator, it gave me great shimmer as well as great color, I even used it as a blush replacement one day when I was in a hurry doing my makeup and it worked wonderfully for me, gave me just enough color but wasn't overwhelming. If you are not someone who is into glitter, I would recommend skipping Super Orgasm and purchasing the original Orgasm shade. The illuminator can also be used in  few different ways, first it can also be mixed into a little bit of foundation for a all over glow second it can be applied under blush for a extra pop. Overall except for the glitter on occasion I don't have any complaints I pretty much love everything about the illuminator and I can't wait to purchase more of the NARS illuminator shades in the future. Anyone else own one of the NARS Illuminators? If so what do you think?
