#68 A NARS beauty state of mind : The Orgasm Illuminator

So last week I attended a press event with NARS Cosmetics to launch their SS 2010 collection and the much awaited Orgasm Illuminator. It was hosted by NARS international makeup artist Jane Richardson and lets just say I was in NARS heaven! I also knew I wasn’t the only one in a NARS heaven state of mind, as when the Orgasm Illuminator was introduced, a collective Ooooh literally went round the room. I can now completely understand why so many of these little tubes disappeared at Fashion week and why the beauty world is already buzzing about it.

A new product category for NARS, it joins the cult-followed collection of NARS Orgasm-hued products, loved by makeup artists and women worldwide.

I was lucky enough to get one of these tubes and it definitely lives up to its buzz! It’s extremely WOC friendly and flattering, gliding on nicely to give my skin a beautiful luminous glow with hints of gold. A multipurpose product, you can use it all over your face for a barely-there, healthy glow or wear it on the neck, shoulders or décolleté for a subtle eye-catching sheen. I personally found that I really liked it either mixed with my foundation for overall luminosity or as a highlighter for a glimmering accent on my cheekbones. The lovely Jane taught me a little trick with the illuminator - she suggested that using circular motions I should try to feel under my cheekbones to really contour and add a subtle definition to my face. I tried it out and it worked and looked great! All in all each time I have tried it, I literally look like I have just had the best sleep ever.

It retails at £21 and will be available exclusively at Space NK from the 18th of February and then will roll out nationwide from the 1st of March,

Here it is in use at the Thakoon show where the look was Samurai warrior meets Surfer girl

To recreate the look:

· Apply NARS Sheer Matte Foundation to conceal imperfections
