The Perfect Duo: NARS Orgasm & Albatross
My sister got me NARS Orgasm blush for my birthday and very kindly gave me her Albatross highlighter because she hardly used it - I loved it and was always stealing it! I actually asked her for the Sleek Rose Gold dupe but she surprised me and got me the real deal along with lots of MUA goodies. I've been using the blusher and highlighter for about a month now and I'm absolutely loving them.
First of all, I love the NARS packaging, it's so sleek and simple and looks gorgeous in my makeup bag. However, I do feel as though it gets dirty quite easily so I'm always cleaning it with my makeup wipes. Orgasm blush is a gorgeous pinky/peach colour with a gold shimmer through it. I'm not usually a shimmer kind of girl and usually go for a matte blush but I've always wanted to try this blusher as I've seen so many reviews on it. I think the colour is absolutely gorgeous and I've had a lot of compliments on it. It's quite a subtle colour but I like to put on a few layers to build it up which gives a stronger colour. The shimmer is very noticeable, so if you have problems with your skin it might highlighter it, but personally I think it gives me a lovely glow.
Now onto the highlighter...I've been wearing Albatross long with Orgasm and I know you can get these two in a duo which I think is great because they go perfect together. Like Orgasm, Albatross has gorgeous gold undertones which is why they look so good together. The pigment is great for a highlighter so a little goes a long way. I love wearing it on my cheekbones and on my brow bones, especially on a night out as it stands out in photos.
I also love wearing this along with my NARS Laguna Bronzer. I'm a bit obsessed with everything NARS at the moment and have one of the Multiple's and Desire Blush on my wishlist. These are definitely my favourite blush and highlighter to wear at the moment. Orgasm and Albatross cost £21 each and can be purchased here.
