NARS Laguna: Portrait of Paradise

This summer, NARS introduces a limited-edition collection of products inspired by the cult classic Laguna Bronzing Powder. Taking a cue from Founder & Creative Director François Nars’ island, Motu Tane, the collection evokes vivid images of the exotic French Polynesia. Gorgeous glistening skin begins with the Laguna Body Illuminator, with a delicious scent inspired by the Tiare flower that grows wild on Motu Tane. A gold-flecked Laguna Multiple provides a natural bronzed brilliance to the face, and cheeks are highlighted with NARS’ first Blush/Bronzer Trio. Sweep on, and be swept away.

Laguna Body Illuminator ($45.00)

After the high demand of light-reflecting golden bronze face Illuminator comes an Illuminator designed for body application that won’t transfer onto clothing. Perfect for legs, neck and décolleté, the Body Illuminator is a limited-edition product.

Laguna Multiple ($39.00)

Fusing an iconic shade with a cult classic formula, the brown with golden shimmer shade will debut for the first time as a limited-edition Multiple – perfect for highlighting, lightly contouring, or all-over bronzing.

Orgasm, Albatross, Laguna Blush/Bronzer Trio ($55.00)

Three iconic NARS products, one portable zip-around compact. With Orgasm Blush, Albatross Highlighting Blush Powder, and Laguna Bronzing Powder, this limited-edition trio makes a flawless complexion more attainable than ever.

availability: Now @ NARS

  1. that multiple will be mine! muahaha..sorry bank account :P

  2. Love the collection!

    Oooohhh how I wish that Nars would just STOP using Orgasm in every single one of their gift set and palette!
    It’s annoying for fans of the brand who already have 3 different Orgasm blushes from previous gift sets and palettes.

    Had it been any other blush than Orgasm, I would have bought it the minute it was available.

  4. This is my #1 for summer 2011 :)

  5. Alvina

    Will u be reviewing and swatching these items especially the Laguna Multiple? Would like to know if you do, Thanks! =)

    Now this Bronzer Trio semes like a good deal. I would have bough it if I didn’t figure out my staples MUFE and La Femme.

    I totally want that Laguna/Orgasm/Albatross trio… But I already have the Laguna/Orgasm duo and Albatross. I don’t think I can justify getting it! Well it would be rather handy as I use those 3 things almost every single day, and I do travel a lot between my parents’ and my boyfriend’s parents’ houses… Ahhh! The temptation

  8. I saw this the other day at sephora! I really want the trio of powders.
    it’s a really great combination.

  9. DJ

    I need that trio!

  10. Amanda Dubs

    So pretty much I want that trio really really bad. I need to save some from my next paycheck because this is a must have. My current orgasm is broken and its really starting to annoy me.

    My mother bought me the trio as part of my graduation gift and I LOVE it. Orgasm in it is NOT the Orgasm in the single (or a lot of the palettes). It’s more pinkish, more pigmented, and very beautiful.

      I agree. The Orgasm in the trio looks way different (and much better) than in the single compact.

    Oooh a Laguna Multiple! Might get that! :)

  13. ellie

    That trio would be useful but i dont like the look of that zip up compact! I guess its designed for traveling but ugh…

    Although Orgasm isn’t the best shade on me and I’m a bit “iffy” about Laguna, I might just break down and buy this trio as it seems very good value (Nars-wise) to be able to get all 3.

    I just bought the Orgasm, Albatross, Laguna Blush/Bronzer Trio and it is amazzzing. I wasn’t sure about the Laguna bronzer but the woman at Sephora used the products on me and it was beautiful. My 2 accomplices confirmed haha.
    Great product!! I think I like this bronzer better than the MAC one I have.

  16. Kelly C.

    I wish my Sephora would get this collection in. I very tempted by the Laguna multiple or the trio of powders. I’ve heard that the Orgasm blush included is quite a bit different from the stand along blush, which I’m meh about.

  17. Hepcat288

    how much product is in the blush/bronzer trio?

  18. Nayeli

    Do u think the trio is a good deal? I don’t have any of them and would love to try all 3. I’m NC35-40 depending on season would the colors suit me?

  19. Becca

    oooo I really want that set, seeing as I don’t have either orgasm, laguna, OR albatroos, and have been wanting to try all three!!!

  20. roza

    This is a gorgeous product and it’s an awesome deal, but I tired of all over shimmer. I don’t need shimmer in bronzer, blush, and highlighter. I wish the bronzer and blush came in matte and then I could apply the shimmer highlighter where I want it.
    I love my combo of tarte matte bronzer, tarte amazonian clay blushes, and thebalm mary lou manizer. No disco ball face for me.

  21. Angel

    HOLYJAIJFLCKDHNVGUIAJF. i’ve been wanting albatross AND laguna! Orgasm I never really gave in to but I’m willing to try.

    A MUST<3

  22. Alice

    I want this Orgasm, Albatross, Laguna Blush/Bronzer Trio sososo bad! I dont own any of these three. Is this limited edition?

  23. mayra

    I’ve heard nothin but great things about these and have never tried nars so I’ll defitnetly have to get the trio. =D

  24. Krista

    Ever since I saw the trio in the site I’ve been ogling at it. <3 It's perfect and it'll instantly slash three products off my makeup bag. So getting it!

  25. Katie

    I really want to try Laguna and Albatross…but I already have Orgasm. I dunno if its worth it :-/

  26. Avatar of iluvlippy Sharan

    OMG OMG this is sooo amazing…Laguna, Orgasm and Albatross my fav (go to) cheek products in one palette (has got to be my ultimate product of the year) !!! I’ve just bought two of them…What a shame this is Limited Edition as I think this is something I would purchase over and over again…

  27. OH DEAR! That body illuminator must be mine… sorry wallet. You just got broke.

  28. Frenchie

    I, for one, did not already own an Orgasm blush (I know, right? What was I waiting for??) and got the bronzer trio as it contained three products that I really wanted to try. I am blown away by all of the products, but especially the Orgasm blush. Now I get what all the hype was about. I am slowly becoming a die hard NARS fan!

  29. cloudburst

    I really dislike the zippered packaging. What’s wrong with a regular compact?

  30. Just purchased the Nars trio. It’s awesome!!!
    Many thanks, Aud

  31. Crazy_for_Makeup

    Love the portable trio!!!! The packaging similar to the eyes and cheek pallete is genious!

  32. Hope

    Did you swatch these? I can’t access a link for more photos. Thanks

  33. Nars Orgasm and Super Orgasm are beautiful but there are so many other beautiful colors in the permanent collection. I look forward to other gift sets with colors I don’t already have.
