|L-R Gold Highlighter, Orgasm, pink matte blush, peach matte blush|
I have been coveting the Foreplay palette since early rumours of its release began to circulate in the USA, over the summer I tried to get my hands on it as my stepmum lived there and regularly went to Sephora on my behalf. She tried to no luck. I could easily have cried forever and I accepted there was a very good chance I wasn't ever going to own it. My jaw literally dropped when I saw it on the Nars website last week and I knew it was the one, tonight it is sitting in my lap- no other beauty purchase has felt this good.
Now on to the product. It is based around the Orgasm blush, which is incredibly famous and an absolute cult classic. I adore Orgasm, it is my go-to blusher. I wear it ever single day, no matter where I am going or what I am doing, it is just so versatile. The pink and peach undertones means that it matches so many skin types and the gentle gold glow really does perk up your complexion. I could bang on about how much I love Orgasm all night. It is just.. the best.
So a whole palette based around Orgasm is literally the best idea EVER. When you line the colours up (see swatches above) you can see how it has been deconstructed. There is a very bright pink and a reddy peach- these are the two undertone colours. The bright gold is that gorgeous shimmer that sets Orgasm apart.
The colours are.... incredibly intense. I swatched with my usual heavy handed approach to putting on blusher and well... I scared myself a little bit. Note to self, be gentle or your cheeks will be scarlet. So light handed approach taken and I adore them. I slightly prefer the peach, but maybe that is because the pink is so intense I haven't worked out how to use it to its full potential.
I have found the gold is very versatile, a little sweep over the whole area gives it the Orgasm vibe, concentrated on your cheek and brow bones and it can be a great highlighter, use a hard angle brush to turn it into liner or use it as part of your eyeshadow. Incredible.
Plus it has a brilliant slutty name.
Foreplay can be bought at Nars for 39.50.
