Concealers -NARS -Radiant Creamy Concealer

on 3/15/2018 10:08:00 PM


I bought this concealer because it is considered the best concealer around for dark circles... I have fair-medium skin and I bought the Vanilla tone, which was the one recommended by the Sephora SA.

Well, I have very dark circles and very dry under eye area. So, regarding this concealer:

- Very moisturizing, does not make the under eye area feel dry
- Full coverage

- It is very thick and oily
- IT CREASES LIKE HELL. Even with a good translucent powder , it still creases, because it has a VERY thick formula.
- Color is too off - Vanilla is definitely not my tone but Honey looks too yellowish for me
- ridiculous packaging - 100% waste! How am I going to use the concealer to the last drop with this packaging? It's too expensive for so much waste!
- Too expensive, can't get the vibe

Anyway, it's a good concealer because it's not dry and it gives full coverage, but it's definitely not good for the under eye area. Because it's too thick, it creases a lot. And the packaging is horrible, we can't use the concealer to the last drop. I'm definitely NOT buying another one.

Blush -NARS -Orgasm Blush

This is my go to blush it looks great in all skin tones very natural and pretty. Nars claims this blush brighten and rejuvenates skin this is a understatement. This blush is the perfect shade!

Eyeliner -NARS -Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner - Via Veneto

on 3/12/2018 3:30:00 PM

My sister bought me a NARS eyeshadow palette a while ago, and it came with a deluxe sample size of this eyeliner tucked into the palette and I'm only now getting around to writing a review. There are many things to love about the eyeliner when you first start using it -- it's creamy, it's a velvet black and it applies like a dream. The catch, however, is this is what it's like "when you first start using it."

The only other Larger Than Life eyeliner I've tried was in the color Barrow Street, and I thought my issues with that one were limited to that particular color, but nope, they apply here, too. I've never had a pencil eyeliner dry out so quickly on me! Within a month, the pencil was tugging on my eyelids as I applied and the black would take several passes to show up as dark as it once was. Even then, by the end of the day, the color faded significantly to a more muted light black (not a grey, as it lacks the richness that comes with a good grey eyeliner)!

I usually enjoy using NARS products, but these eyeliners are a pass for me, especially given the high price point.

Palettes -NARS -NARSissist Wanted Eyeshadow Palette

on 3/11/2018 12:06:00 PM


I lusted over this for a while and then Sephora had the VIB sale. I quickly put in on my Xmas list. My sister ended up buying for me but missed the sale.However I must say this is worth full price. All the colors are smooth and easy to apply. Even the metallic has Zero fall out ladies. It wears for hours and even after I dozed off it did Not crease. One of the best pallets ever by Nars and I love their products.I also love on the Nars site you can watch video of artist applying to the model.I first bought the Colour Pop Polite AF and even with glitter primer still major fall out.You get what you par for in this case. The colors are suitable for a wide variety of complexions.It also is suitable for us ladies over 35,40 years old as it does Not add years around the eye area or settle in lines.

Foundations -NARS -Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation

on 3/10/2018 2:06:00 AM


I didn't have much luck with NARS foundations before (mostly because they felt heavy on the skin), but this new guy is an exception.

If you look after your skin (exfoliate, moisturize well) this foundation will work for someone who is dry. I am dry and it looks amazing, mostly because it does get more radiant as the goes by. Lasts all day, but might move if you touch your face a lot (as I do). You can easily sheer it out/build it up depending on what look you're going for. Little DOES go a verrrrry long way.

Shade selection is lovely, I use Deauville and it is a perfect match. I talk more about my application tips in a separate review ( in case that's something you want to know more about.

I think this formula is best for people with normal, even drier skin types. It is lightweight, breathable and very pigmented. However, it might accentuate dryness if you are extremely dry, or look greasy if you are very oily. So do proceed with caution if you are one of the two.
