Sephora Picks- NARS Blush/Bronzer Trio

NARS is known for many of its products, but when it comes to blush and bronzer, its famous Laguna bronzer (brown with golden shimmer) and Orgasm Blush (peachy pink with shimmer) is quite popular in the beauty community.

Laguna bronzer is great if you want to achieve a sun-kissed glow without the sun, and also if you want to give your face some more definition by contouring.  
Orgasm blush is such a gorgeous peachy color that will give you a beautiful flush of color on your cheeks.
NARS Blush Bronzer Trio
NARS has come out with a trio that features those famous shades in addition to a great highlighting powder that will complete your look. The highlighter color, Albatross, is described as a “sheer light golden sheen” making it great to apply on top of your cheek bones to give you that gorgeous glow!

You can get the NARS Blush/Bronzer Trio here: http://sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P284308&categoryId=C7010#

If you are like me then you love to find comparable dupes!

ELF Cosmetics (Eyes Lips Face) has great comparable products for the above NARS products. They may not be exact, but hey, if you are on a budget they will do :)

ELF Contouring Blush and Bronzer Powder
 ELF Contouring Blush and Bronzer Powder

The Contouring Blush & Bronzer Powder is one palette that I frequently travel with. Having both a bronzer and a blush in one compact makes it so convenient!

 ELF Gotta Glow Blush
ELF’s Gotta Glow Blush Powder is very similar to NARS’ Albatross as it works brilliant as a highlighting powder.

If you are willing to splurge on a high-end compact that includes a bronzer, blush and highlighting powder all-in-one, I would recommend NARS Blush/Bronzer trio from Sephora.
However, if you want to  settle for something a little more affordable ELF’s Contouring Blush and Bronzer Powder and Gotta Glow Blush are great alternatives!


  1. I love nars products...great dupe! I will check it out, just hate paying shipping!

  2. @Lotus I know what you mean girl! I try to avoid paying shipping costs when I can. I actually purchased the elf Contouring Blush and Bronzer Powder from Winners. It was a bit more expensive than what it retails for online...but taking into consideration shipping costs, I think I did okay lol.
