Dissapointment Du Jour 1.30.10: NARS Orgasm Illuminator and NARS Easy Lover Lipgloss

A big fat F for Failure for NARS Orgasm Illuminator and Easy Lover lip gloss. I do not even have a swatch because I want to return both to Sephora ASAP.



I am so let down by both, first of all, I will start with the lip gloss. From the tube and the description I thought it would provide a transparent hot pink wash to your lips, very juicy looking. No No NO! All it was was a clear gloss with a slight berry stain look to it, definitely not worth $24. Another reason I am so upset is because Easy Lover by Phil Collins is one of my top three favorite songs ever, I so wanted a lip gloss with that name! Bollocks, as the British would say!

Next, Orgasm Illuminator, well...it just SO not worth it. It is a peachy liquid with a gold shimmer too it. Sounds like it could be gorgeous but when I put it on my hand, two minutes later it was GONE. Disappeared, then in the daylight I saw nothing The texture is also something I am not a fan of, it is very liquid-y and runny and I hate that. I like for it to have a cream texture, but that is very personal. I think other people might like this formulation as it is very light. I don't know, again just not worth $29.

So in total I am happy because now I have over $50 more dollars in my pocket, but shame on you NARS!

I am sure some people will love these products but they did not hit the spot for me.
Any one care to share their thoughts?

  1. Oh no! Easy lover looked great in the tube but I saw a swatch on lips and thought it looked blah... Shame you didn't like the Orgasm illuminator, I hate when products are so hyped and eagerly anticipated only to be a total let down.xx

  8. thanks for the review! I just swatched Easy Lover and I too was not impressed. It's too bad -- it looks nice in the tube but does nothing for the lips. I didn't see the Illuminator at my Sephora so didn't get a chance to see it.

  9. It's such a nice little privilege you got in the States, returning products that left you dissapointed. I hope it makes it to Europe!

  10. Boo! Sorry they didn't work out. Thanks for the info though, I now know not to spend my money on these two ;)

  11. That sucks! Not to be a downer, but it seems like often times the stuff that we are most excited about is the stuff that lets us down the most, and things we didn't have time to get excited about make our day! I guess it all evens out in the end...☺

  15. For all the European fans of Nars Cosmetics, [ especially the UK one ;-) ], note that returns are welcome when buying on Nars official online stores.

  16. so glad you reviewed this.
    I still want to check out Easy Lover so I will at least try it on next time I'm at Sephora and I did buy (and love) Kuala Lumpur duo.

    And as for the Orgasm Luminator - I was going to pass regardless. Products like that never really work on me.

  17. I don't think it shows up well on pale skin. Darker skin can carry it off better and that's at a push!

  18. I like to get up early to go out and breathe fresh air. I feel that it is good for health and a good habit
