NARS Eye Shadow Deals and Orgasm Blush v. Super Orgasm

NARS is quickly becoming one of my favorite brands and I've had the chance to try this brand out more because of some amazing deals Sephora has had.

They had 2 single eyeshadows for $8. A single NARS shadow normally goes for $23. Out of all the eyeshadows I have and have swatched, I think these are the absolute creamiest. They feel amazing and are great colors.

Product Description:
What it does:

Mix and match NARS Single Eyeshadows to create great-looking personal combinations for the eyes. Textures range from translucent highlights and subtle mattes to shimmering glitters.

Night Sun: Bright marigold with  gold flecks 

California: Molten Copper 

For me, getting any single high-end eye shadow for $8 is amazing. Most will run you $15-23+. I love both of these colors, but I will warn you that the Night Sun probably isn't for everyone. There are larger gold flecks in it and there can be some fall out. This is not going to be a solid bright yellow, but more of a sparkly lighter yellow I love using this color as the color right underneath my eyebrow. But if you want to play it safe and just try one, go with the Molten Copper. I have lighter skin tone and this shade looks good on me, but will probably look great on someone with a warmer skin done or darker skin.

Getting these shadows for $8 a piece definitely will make me purchase other NARS shadows in the future.

So, after loving this deal, I was in HEAVEN to find an even better deal. NARS has two duo shadows on for $10 each and with their 20% off friends and family sale (now done, but blogged about previously), I got each duo shadow for $8!!! You can't beat that! The price on NARS eye shadow duos is $33.

Product Description:

What it does:
This long-wearing, crease-resistant formula is uniquely paired in dazzling and creative color combinations, expertly coordinated by Fran├žois Nars. Worn together or alone, these shades are richly pigmented and can be applied sheer or built up for a more dramatic effect. Used wet, these shadows also double as eyeliners.

And when a brand/store has these deals, they earn my brand loyalty, so of course I had to check out the NARS cult favorite, blush in Orgasm. I also had the chance to swatch Orgasm and Super Orgasm at Sephora this weekend, and I'm glad I went with the original. Super Orgasm is still very pretty,but to me it didn't seem to have that heightened gold pop that it claims and for $27 each, they are a little too similar for me to justify purchasing both. But I love pinks with golds in them, especially in the fall. Orgasm description is gold shimmer whereas Super Orgasm is gold glitter. Honestly, I didn't see that much gold in the Super Orgasm.

Top two are the duo eyeshadows, bottom is the blush
Love NARS packaging! These kind of have a rubbery feel

Island Fever: Pacific Blue Shimmer/ Dove Gray Shimmer

Very pretty blue and silver mix. Very feminine and light.
Bysance: Shimmering Marigold/Iridescent Iris
In <3

I knew I would love this 2nd duo the best because these are TOTALLY the epitome of "my colors", however, I really do love both palettes. The blue one is very soft, feminine, and pretty. The purple one allows a much more dramatic fun look. Although I got them 20% off, they are still available here for $10 on Sephora online. If you're just looking for one duo and want the most bang for your buck, I would suggest Bysance (purple/gold).

So thanks NARS/Sephora for these amazing deals. It encouraged me to finally get Orgasm blush and I'm loving that as well!

So what is your NARS favorite product?

I think my next product purchase will be the Velvet Lip Pencil shown here and recommended as well by Allure Magazine best of  here . I tested these out at Sephora, they have a great color selection and this goes on smooth and silky.
