This is a new product released by NARS on May 1st, which i absolutely love when i first saw it, it was a gift and i believe it is a great gift and the person who got me this one was really smart. I’m so sad that NARS is no longer available in the UAE but there is a good chance that it will be brought back (God knows when and where) but i just got my hopes high after bringing back Urban Decay.
Anyways, this is a compact pouch that has NARS top bestsellers Orgasm blush (described as peachy pink with golden shimmer), Albatross highlighting blush (described as a universally flattering shade that gives luminous glow) and Laguna bronzing powder (described as diffused brown powder with golden shimmer). I had Orgasm blush before and i cannot express how much i love this blush, it works on every skin tone and it gives such a beautiful and healthy glow on the cheeks. I’ve always wanted to get Albatross and Laguna but never had a chance to go shopping at NARS again until it was gone :tears:
The pouch is a medium size and made of a hard fabric and opened by a zipper, it can be put easily in any purse.  I didnt like the fabric because it catches dirt and powder very easily (shown in the 2nd picture). The colors come in different vertical sizes, i find the blusher a bit hard to pick through a brush and not to touch the next color (Albatross), so the best one i used is either Sigma F05 or MAC 116. The highlighter and the bronzer sizes are reasonably enough for any suitable brushes.
My thoughts on the NARS Blush/Bronzer Trio..hmm..well i compared between the 2 Orgasms and i can tell that there is a difference, i’m not sure if its the first coat that doesnt give the wanted color but it didnt give me the same effect the original one did. So i just assumed that the others (Albatross and Laguna) are not as the exact originals. 
Personally i didnt see anything significant in Albatross and Laguna and i dont understand all the hype about them being bestsellers, again the colors in the pouch might not be as the originals so this could be the reason.
