Has anyone tried the NARS Orgasm Illuminator? I'm assuming it gives something of a similar look to the Benefit High beam? It's on my wish list.

I use Guerlain meteorites , skin looks nice and radiant, but this product isn't good for dry skin...

I have it and love it.
I haven't tried Benefit High beam but the Illuminator is very sheer and gives leaves your skin with a bit of gold sheen. I wouldn't go as far to say sparkles.:p
I wore it out this weekend just on my cheeks and got alot of compliments on it.

I have it and love it. It gives a much warmer glow than High Beam. I use it after my Smashbox primer and it makes a flawless base for my foundation. I can't wait to use it this summer when I go out a night.

It's $29 US on the NARS website & about triple that for Australians who can only source NARS through Mecca ($69 AUD)

I don't have much experience with skin illumination. I do have High Beam from Benefit but it was rarely used, because my skin wasn't clear back then. Btw, Belowen just showed me what was I missing. (You look absolutely gorgeous!)
Since my skin has really improved now I'm thinking about getting that new NARS Orgasm Illuminator (to be honest I got tempted by all reviews and the fact that it's kinda exclusive, especially because it's not available here:p). I have pretty fair skin (don't know about undertone, I think it's neutral or maybe yellow-not sure if that's helpful, but I use MAC NC15 foundation and Bourjous Light Vanilla 51), do you think it will work for me? Or should I stick to High Beam?

Hmmm. May be worth the extra $5 over High Beam's price.

I dont know if anyone noticed this, but in many of the shows that create that fresh, natural, dewy skin like Prada's fall 2010/2011 show. I've always notice a must have on the backstage makeup table which is the mac face and body foundation.

^That's because it's the best foundation for perfect, dewy healthy-looking skin. I love applying it with my hands, it's undetectable.

The_Ida,

Are you talking about this mac face and body foundation?
Is it for all skintypes? Because I have combination skin.
And do they have many colors?

^Yes I am It works fine on me, I have normal/combination skin. The lightest shade isn't very light IMO, so they're great for light-medium skin.

There is no shade light enough for me in MAC which really sucks because I've heard great things about the face and body foundation

^ They do have a white one to mix in but I don't see the point in spending twice the money with a company that doesn't cater for me - this is your time to get By Terry Light Expert!
