NARS Blush/Bronzer Duo

Last week I was checking my emails and saw that ASOS had increased the 10% student discount to 20% for a limited time so I immediately found the ASOS wishlist on my phone and searched through what I was going to splurge on. I'm one of those people that even if they don't need anything if I see a discount I feel required to buy something, I convince myself that I'm saving money in the long run. So I thought I would treat myself to a little early Christmas present. I've never tried any of NARS products before but I've always wanted to try the Orgasm blush and Laguna bronzer as they're cult products and everyone seems to rave about them. When I saw this beautiful little duo with both of them in I knew I must have it!

The first thing I noticed when unpacking my little ASOS box was the packaging, the NARS packaging is so sleek and compact which I absolutely love! With packaging, I love non-fuss and simplicity which is just what the NARS packaging encompasses. I like the idea of a bronzer and blusher duo as it is so easy to pop in my makeup bag and not take up a ridiculous amount of space.

The blusher is beautiful as it has a slight shimmer which I'm really into at the moment and makes the cheeks look glowing. As it is a highlighting blush it really makes the cheeks stand out and makes them the focal point of the face. I also love that this blush works well both in the day and the night and the gold flecks in it are really gorgeous.

Everyone in the beauty world always gushes over the Laguna bronzer so I was so excited to try out what so many people regard as their holy grail product. After using it for a week I can now say that it is the best bronzer I've ever used, it works really well as a contour bronzer but also is great for overall bronzing. I love that its matte as for me shimmer bronzers always look so unnatural. Laguna allows me to fake a glowing tan and looks healthy and natural. 

Overall I am so pleased with my purchase, especially as I got it discounted! The colours are lush and are pigmented and easily blended. If anyone is looking at buying any NARS products I would definitely check out ASOS as they always have great discounts and offers. *Today (1st December) ASOS has 20% off of everything for 24 hours*

  2. OH how I wish I was a student, I would spent so much money! Do you like the bronzer? I find it a little hard to pull of this time of the year, I have to apply it very lightly!

    1. It's terrible though I spend too much! When I first applied it I thought it was a bit too dark but once I blended it in it looked really nice. I've found a little goes a long way :) x
