NARS Orgasm Illuminator Giveaway Contest

This should be fun and just in time for summer! I have a NARS Orgasm Illuminator ($29) to give away. I love mine! The color adds a beautiful sheen wherever you apply it (no glitter in this one).

It's described as a peachy pink with golden shimmer on the Sephora site. That's a pretty accurate description of the un-blended color. Once blended, though, it provides a gorgeous warm peach-toned golden bronze glow on my skin.

I think this illuminator will look a bit different on everyone. I also think it's going to delight you no matter what your skin tone.

Here's Sephora's description.

NARS Orgasm Illuminator lights your skin from within! Deceptively sheer and decidedly luminous, it magically transforms lackluster skin into a remember-me, luscious complexion. Flirt with foundation, go it alone, or go neck-and-neck with your décolleté. The effect is, well, orgasmic.

I don't know about "orgasmic," but this bronzing illuminator really excites me. I can use it as a warm blusher, a bronzer, and to add a warm glow when applied to the "high points" of my face. I can mix it with moisturizer and use it all over my face and neck. It's versatility has quickly earned it a place in my everyday makeup stash. That's quite a compliment!

The NARS Orgasm Illuminator is so cool, I decided to give one away. To enter to win, just leave a comment here once. It's that easy! After you comment, feel free to e-mail bestthingsinbeautycontests@gmail.com and identify your comment. You can never be too careful about sharing your e-mail address on a blog, so I would follow this second step if I were you (an alternative is to code your e-mail, e.g., myname at gmail dot com, in your comment).

The contest is open to U.S. and Canadian residents. The deadline for entries will be midnight, May 15. The next day, I will use a random number generator to select the winner.

I'll be posting this contest at Free!Grechen, my favorite giveaway site on the Web. You should check it out if you haven't already!

Good Luck!

I would probably use a little bit of this mixed with my foundation or tinted moisturizer to give me a "youthful glow" (and believe me...I haven't seen that in awhile!)

I have been using Milani Luminous blush which is a cheaper version of Nars Orgasm. I am quite impressed with the peachy-pink tone- originally I thought it would not work on my cool complexion
