Concealers -NARS -Radiant Creamy Concealer

on 12/15/2017 3:47:00 AM


I have seen/read many reviews on this. Though some said this is a great concealer, yet there were several others who said that this product is 'over-hyped' due to its high price tag when compare to the actual quality it performs.

However.... to me, this product is TOTALLY worth the hype! The full name of this concealer proves it all; "Radiant" , "Creamy" , "Concealer". It does its job perfectly! It conceals my dark circles and does not crease due to its creamy formula.

I saw some Youtubers said that the "NYX HD concealer" is a dupe to this, and I am strongly disagree. NYX HD had a matte-finish which eventually creased my under eyes, and made it looked patchy. While this NARS one does not.

I'm happy that I made the right decision to purchase it, even though I was skeptical for so long!

BTW, I'm Thai and I wear in the shade "Custard".

Liquid -NARS -Sheer Glow Foundation

on 12/15/2017 2:58:00 AM


I have tried many foundations in search of the correct colour for my face. I finally found Fiji, and will never change. Sheer Glow is expensive, but it is buildable and long lasting.

Masks -NARS -Aqua Gel Luminous Mask

on 12/14/2017 3:06:00 AM


I use this less as a mask and more as a "pre-moisturizer". Toners just don't to do much for me, so I go the granny-who-is-an-adorable-living-time-capsule route and just use various flower waters... rose, neroli, or lavender, and sometimes witch hazel. But I do find I need a little something to go under proper moisturizer and face oil, and this fits the bill.

When you first squeeze it out of the tube, it looks thin (even kind of watery), and translucent, not very promising. But something happens when it goes on... it's not full of moisture but it nicely quenches the thirst my skin so often feels. It's not thick or plumping but somehow skin feels so much smoother and fine-textured after this goes on. It's not cushiony but soothes and comforts skin that is hot and bothered. It feels cooling even when I haven't put it in the fridge. Going by that and a slight tingling feeling I often feel on application, I would be tempted to say that one of the ingredients is alcohol. But I've tried other products that include alcohol before, and with very little exception, they wreck my skin... I actually break out when my skin is too DRY, I think it has something to do with the barrier being damaged. That's not what happens here.

It's a great product and a little goes a long way... I use an amount that's literally the size of a pea, and it's enough to brighten and refresh the whole face (I don't think I've seen any benefits from using any more... if anything, it tends to blunt the effect). I use it morning and evening, alone in summer (when the weather is hot and humid and my skin soaks up water from the air anyway), and during the rest of the year I layer it under moisturizer and face oils. Not necessarily every day, because I am terrible about maintaining a consistent routine, and also because I'm trying to economize because of how darn expensive this is, but this does tend to be the first thing I reach for whenever my skin feels dull and ready for a pick-me-up. On that count, it always delivers.

Lipstick -NARS -Audacious Lipstick - Barbara

on 12/12/2017 1:26:00 PM


Executive summary: this color is beautiful, this formula is the pits.

This color is beautiful: I am a very fair woman and this is basically the color of my lips when I'm having a very pale day. It's not my lips but better, it's just my lip color in lipstick format. So basically it is the end all be all nude lip for me. It's a sandy pink with a dash of yellow, and it's transparent enough that a lip liner can really be fun to play with here. Today I wore it with MAC's Enoki and I am having a lovely trippy time remembering a mauve combo I wore at Estée Lauder in the early aughts. It's so gorgeous.

This formula is the pits: I am completely in the minority here, I know, but this is a wretched formula. The colors are so gorgeous though that I finally caved on Barbara (and might do with Shirley, too). It can give me "fadey" lip, and kind of a dry crusty looking lip if I don't baby sit it and if I go sans liner, it isn't lasting for longer than an hour. It feels gorgeous going on, but then it's done. But again I feel like I am so in the minority on this opinion that if you're on the fence, go try it. This color is so so fetching.

Eye Shadow -NARS -Narcissist Eyeshadow Pallette

on 12/11/2017 7:37:00 AM

I saw this on the Sephora web site and decided to try it. This is another warm toned pallette, that has primarily glitter/sparkly shadows, which makes it very hard to do am eyeshadow look using this alone. I like some of the pink and red shades, but 2 of the colors are basically glitter, and only 4 are matte. I am going to use it during the holidays, but I do no see this as being something I would use very often. I really should have returned it.
