Were you ever a highlighter person? I mean, were you someone who collected yellow, pink, blue highlighters and marked every book you own with them?
I never did that, but I did make good use of my pink and yellow highlighters to accentuate the best parts of my biology textbook.
Puh-leeze. Like there were any “best parts” in that book.
Nowadays, highlighters grace my face instead of my books. I received a sample of NARS Orgasm in an order I placed a while ago.
The website describes it as “A collection of light-reflecting liquids that glide on to refresh and enhance the complexion with shimmering incandescence. Deceptively sheer, decidedly luminous.”
That’s accurate to me!
Orgasm is a peachy pink with gold shimmer.
And here it is blended onto my skin:
I applied a little of this along my cheekbones and blended it in. It left such a beautiful shimmer on my tanned skin! I have oily skin, so I was careful to apply a little.
I think this product should be used sparingly, because too much of it can make your face look like a disco ball. I wore this highlighter for about 6 hours with no problems. It stayed in place, and the sparkles didn’t migrate.
It was a tad sticky going on, but blended well, and it took only a few seconds to dry. There is a slight perfume smell that faded quickly.
The only thing about this is, I would caution anyone to not apply too much at first. There is the chance you could overdo it. Start with a tiny bit, then add more as needed.
Do I recommend this? I would be foolish not to!
Pros: Blends well, beautiful colors, dries quickly, stays in place.
Cons: Not everyone wants to pay $29 for this, not easy to apply for a beginner.
