NARS Insider Private Sale: Lose Yourself Gift Set

Rounding out the trio of goodies is a trio in and of itself, the Lose Yourself Gift Set.  It comes with a miniature lip gloss in Angelika, and a blush-bronzer duo palette containing Angelika blush and... Laguna bronzer!

I am so pleased to have gotten my greedy little mitts on some of this bronzer, as I've heard raves about it, but have been too afraid to take the plunge (especially considering I still have half a pan of my go to bronzer, Bobbi Brown in Golden Light).  Unfortunately, I have yet to try it on my face, as I've been going sans makeup in the wake of an unfortunate reaction to some waxing from the other day.  It's almost cleared up, though, thanks in no small part to Lush's Mask of Magnaminty (which I'll talk about later), so I should get to give Laguna a stab soon.  As you can see, it's a warm brown with very little orange in it, the texture is silky, and it seems to be quite buildable.

In terms of the Angelikas, the lip gloss looks especially fun for a quick dash of color.  I love a bright pink!  You can't tell from this picture, but it's got a very slight shimmer in it, as well, which is a must for summer, IMO.  The blush is a somewhat subdued version of the lip product, with pretty large bits of glitter in it, but I have yet to see how those stick around throughout the day.  I anticipate it as an excellent transitional blush between day and night, catching the soft summer sunset on the apples of my cheeks.  I think this set is a winner!  I'm even more pleased with it in person than I was when I saw it online.

I hope you are all having the most wonderful Thursday!  What do you think your go to lip product will be in the coming months?
