Blush -NARS - Orgasm Liquid Blush

on 6/28/2017 8:46:00 PM

I try so hard to like Orgasm since it's a cult favorite and maybe even because of the name?? Similar to it's powder predecessor, it's a frosty mess on my cheeks. Not for me, but maybe for you. I will not purchase.

Concealers -NARS - Soft Matte Complete Concealer


I LOVE this concealer!!! HG for sure! i was recently in panic mode when i found out my usual MAC studio finish concealer had been discontinued. I use concealer to cover a red birthmark i have on my cheek that is the size of a 5 cent piece. I scoured the net for the next best thing and found this concealer had great reviews. Its actually everything i wanted SF to be. It dries to a matte finish whereas SF made me look oily after a few hrs. I can wear this all day at work and it stays put and looks great. I have oily skin but this doesn't slide off or separate. im in love­čśŹ I bought the shade Ginger. Its perfect for me. I was using SF in NC35. The downside is the pot size. Its such a tiny amount for the price...but for me it is worth it. i wouldn't ever use this for under my eyes as it would just look too heavy. I'll be buying this again for sure.

Palettes -NARS - NARSissist Loaded Eyeshadow Palette


This is my first eye shadow palette from Nars and I am very pleased with it! I have had too many problems with anything shimmery in the past. At age 47 I have fine lines around my eyes and anything that has any kind of glittery/shimmery fallout only emphasizes them, I have been quite enjoying the matte fad! However, I am impressed as all I need is a light layer of eye shadow primer and these colors stay put, especially the shimmery/metallic shades. I think the color payoff is excellent (as to be expected with a palette of this price range!) The colors apply and blend with ease and all compliment each other and offer numerous eye looks.
So far the only occasion I have used this for is at work and feel all of the colors are office appropriate, but could see myself using this for the evening by being more daring with the shimmers.

Blush -NARS - Gaiety


This blush is shockingly pink. It looks super intimidating and to be honest I never would have picked this out for my fair skin. But my mom gave it to me so I tried....and it's actually kinda great. IT comes off more like a nice pop of pink.

Liquid -NARS - Sheer Glow Foundation

on 6/27/2017 4:37:00 AM


I have combination sensitive skin with a few fine lines under my eyes. This foundation went on beautifully and had medium coverage after 1 layer. I would say the finish is demi-matte. I did not use primer, powder, or setting spray.

I noticed that even after 3 hours, this foundation was slipping and sliding and transferred onto anything that came into contact. So I imagine primer and setting it is a must!

Since I am fairly low maintenance, I do not like foundations that require a lot of work so I won't be repurchasing. The initial finish was nice but it never dried on its own and it started to crease around my nose after a couple hours.

Overall not a terrible foundation and may even be HG if you go to the lengths of priming and setting. But for over $50...I feel it should do as much as Revlon colorstay, which doesn't require priming and setting to get a flawless long lasting finish. But the shade range in colorstay isn't good for my medium golden undertone and the ingredients are not best for my sensitive skin. So I'll have to continue my search...
