Laguna with a touch of orgasm ? Yes please :)

Hey guys,

As soon  as i got to NYC i ran to the information desk in our hotel and asked where is my closest Sephora and i need a cab there asap !

Sephora is like makeup heaven and being an aussie and seeing all these fab products for less than half price compared to what we pay here, led me to go absolutely insane and spend hours in Sephora, stocking up on stuff that i didnt even need.. However when i walked in i just found myself being drawn to the NARS section of the store.

And then i saw these two little babies.. Laguna and Orgasm and its like i couldnt put them in my basket fast enough ! These are hands down the best purchases i made and its so true that they suit any skin tone and the colours are just so amazing, that ive used them everyday since i got them, so lucky i bought doubles !




Laguna is a gorgeous shade of medium brown and unlike most bronzers, it has just a speckle of shimmer, not huge chunks of shimmer which gives your face a really nice glow instead if a party sparkle. I love it because it compliments my skin really well, cause i usually have the problems of bronzers looking a little too orange on my skin, even though its completely brown when i swatch it on my hand, so i dunno whats going on there ! Laguna works well as an all-over sunkissed look or just as a bronzer and can also be used just to contour your face because of the medium brown colour and fine shimmers throughout the product. I know you should use a brown matte powder to contour but because the shimmers are so fine, it works non so many different levels with this bronzer.

Orgasm gives you that lovely flustered pink cheeks look with really fine golden shimmers and i just love it. I really cant explain it anymore beyond the word of love ! Its a medium toned frosted pink and it blends so well into your skin and makes blush application almost effortless. This blush is so versatile and i use it daily because its quite a mellow colour compared to alot of the other blushes i own, which are quite bright and need time to blend them out so the lines arent so harsh, but with nars blushers and orgasm particularly, i can quickly just smoosh my brush into some product and swipe it across my cheeks and run out the door and i know that in the back off my mind, i dont need to worry about blending and harsh lines because of the ultra smooth formula and the light pinkish colour where flaws in application wont show up.

I think from memory, these were $35 each at Sephora in NYC, please correct me if im wrong and as always, id love to hear your thoughts xxx

Is there anything in particular you guys want reviewd or researched or anything along those lines ?



Until next time,

Love S x

  3. @Love.Life.Beauty... I went to Sephora in Times Square because it was about three blocks up from where we were staying. I cant even explain how happy it made me being there where everyone had an American accent asking me if i needed help haha it was surreal ! I also loved that Sephora and MAC are basically next door in Times Square, New Yorkers seriously have nothing to complain about haha xxx

    @msmadamemakeup... you need to go there if you ever have the chance, it was so exciting but i kept getting so angry at the same time because aussies need to pay like a billion dollars more in Australia, that its sometimes not even worth it ! Ill be reviewing and posting up pics over the next few weeks of all the things i picked up there so keep your eye out, and you can share my Sephora experience !!, i just dont know what to use first ! xxx
