Nars Angelika Blush + Orgasm Illuminator



 While passing through Sephora a while ago, I glanced over at the NARS blushes and immediatly fell in love with the color Angelika. It is my favorite color after all! This is actually my very first NARS blush purchase ever. Before this, I just never could never justify spending 27 dollars for one blush. It took me a while to decide to purchase this. When NARS' website recently had a deal where you get free shipping and a free Orgasm Illuminator with every purchase, I couldn't pass it up. 

Angelika is described as a cotton candy pink with gold flecks. The sparkles look  super gorgeous in the pan but I was concerned with how they would look on the skin (I didn't want to look like a big sparkly mess). The flecks turn out to be very subtle to almost not noticeable when this blush is blended into the cheeks. The pink color is very bright but it gives my cheeks a natural pink flushed look. The color is very pigmented yet it is sheer like that of a MAC sheertone blush.  I am so happy with this blush that I  do feel it is worth the money.  




Here I used this blush lightly on the apples of my cheeks. 


I received a free mini NARS Orgasm Illuminator with my purchase.  This  is a beautiful pink-gold highlighter that can be used to highlight anything that you wish to stand out. I have also heard that a lot of people will mix this with their foundation to give their skin a dewy finish. 




On a side note, I have finally reached my goal of 100 followers! Woo!! Therefore, I will be doing my first giveaway which will be posted within the next few days. :)

  13. Angelika is the only blush I've been nervous about getting because of all the glitter!! That's good to know it wasn't as sparkly as I thought!! It's such a pretty color.
