Pressed Powders -NARS - Pressed Powder


I think this is the most underrated pressed powder in the market. I have been using this powder in the shade Eden (perfect shade for me) for the last week and I am very impressed. I have a combo skin with very oily T-zone and I am an NC30-NC35.

This perform a lot better than my Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Powder. But there is a massive difference in price. Nars being $53AUD and Charlotte Tilbury is $70AUD. Both being 8g. I will hit pan before I know it.

Initially, I went heavy with this powder and it went cakey on me. But I soon come to realise that the light dusting of this is what makes this product works so perfectly. It mattifies without drying. It airbrush my pores and my whole face without looking powdery. I just ordered the lighter shade to use under my under eye to brighten it. I am very surprised with this powder. I have always seen it but never given it a second look until I was looking at Nars Lipstick and I thought, I shall give it a go. The price put me off but I thought to myself, girl you paid $70 for a powder last month so surely $53 is justified LOL!

It last longer than my Charlotte Tilbury. I only have to repowder once after lunch and that's it. It doesn't build-up or goes cakey. This is so silky and smooth on my face. I can't love this product enough! Yeah the price is really stiff, but I am willing to pay the price because I have been getting so many compliments. This works with 4 different foundation that I own. I have a lot of textures and active acne at the moment and when I wear this powder, I don't feel so uncomfortable about my face. Love it!

Lipstick -NARS - Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Walkyrie

on 10/15/2017 7:19:00 PM


This is the color I have been looking forever and ever. Color of my dreams..this is what Wet&Wild Give Me Mocha used to look on me and then they went and changed it to a more pinker version. Walkyrie is perfect balance brown, pink and terracotta. You will never ever find a drugstore dupe of color, trust me I have searched and never found even remotely close. On a NC40 Indian girl with pigmented lips, finding a deeper nude that is not too pink or brown or terracotta is like winning the lottery. NARS I am begging you to never ever discontinue this product and please change it to a retractable pencil. This lip pencil is super long wearing. Without eating and just drinking it will last 4/5 hours. It is so light you don't even feel it on your lips. It is pricey but well worth it for me, since it is my "My Lips But Even Better" color. Sigh!!!! now I need to sharpen it in a way that I do not lose much product :((( Wish NARS made this color permanent in the lipstick form.

Lipstick -NARS - Shrinagar

on 10/15/2017 1:57:00 PM


I love this lipstick. I usually go for nudes but the SA at Sephora used this color on me and I immediately knew I would buy it. The NARS shade I owned before this was Rikugian, and I feel that looked better on me when I was blond. I have dry/fair neutral skin, and dark naturally pigmented lips. This color looks amazing on, and doesn't further chap my prone-to-being-dry lips. It's a sheer color, very easy to wear. I find that the more pigmented a shade is, the more drying it is for some reason. I have been wearing this every day since I bought it; to work, on weekends, it's just very easy and pretty. I would never have picked this out on my own, but I am happy to have it. I would buy this again and recommend it to someone with similar coloring.

Liquid -NARS - Sheer Glow Foundation

on 10/15/2017 11:02:00 AM


I reviewed this a while back and raved about it, then i had to come back again and re-edit cos it was a disappointment!

for reference I wore Punjab medium 1; shade comparisons NC30-35, ELDW 3W1 Tawny. Background info: oily combo skin type, live in humid weather environment, prefers wearing full on makeup. Heard nothing but great stuff about this. Its such a waste that it didn't work out for me, because......


So much so that this product has caused me to have a relapse on my skin condition and had to be put on accutane! (am still taking accutane atm!) Cut long story short, used to be on medication a while back, and was given the clear......and about 1 year later medication free, i bought this product and tried it and boom. Back on it again.

+ medium coverage
+ buildable coverage
+ comes with a pump (if you purchase it)
+ great match to my skin tone
+ more matte than "glowy" look they're marketing

- price point
- clings on to dry patches
- broke me out...........UGH

I really wanted to like first glance, the coverage is just what i wanted and I was very pleased with the results. But if you put on more than 1 layer, then it will start to look cakey, and drying. And it will clog pores. That was how it happened to me - despite double cleansing.

I want to stress.....NO other foundation that i've worn before this has clogged my pores, even if sometimes i wear more than one layer, and my skin was just fine. So I knew it was this foundation that was the culprit.

I live outside of US and i paid a lot for this product, and right now i'm even paying a lot more for the medication i'm currently on! I had no choice but to give it away. As a result my skin has become really sensitive and dry and i'm paying the full price of it!

Of course, what experience i've encountered might not be the same for everyone out there, so take it with a pinch of salt. Personally, i would not recommend any sensitive skin user to purchase, however, if you're really keen, perhaps you'd want to request for samples instead before coming to a conclusion!

Hope this helps!

Tinted Moisturizer -NARS - Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer

on 10/14/2017 9:23:00 PM


First, I have to say that I don't completely wear this alone. I mix equal parts this and Revlon colorstay. Revlon was my go-to foundation for longevity, oil control, and it's a great match. However, I find that my 30's skin is getting duller, drier, and there's some teeny fine lines creeping up on me! So I had to find something to mix in with it. I got a sample from Sephora and wore it the next day. Wow! I had a beautiful glow ( not greasy!) and it lasted all day! I just loved it so much that I splurged the $45 for it! It will last me a long time since I only use half of what I'd normally use. It's just soooo worth it!
