Foundations -NARS -Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation

on 2/24/2018 3:10:00 AM


Loved how this applied- so silky and it blended out amazingly quickly with terrific coverage. Lightweight and the shade matched me perfectly. Straight after application my skin looked so incredibly flawless, radiant but not oily or heavy. It felt a bit 'wet' but thought that would come right after a few mins of drydown time.
Unfortunately that's where the good part ends.
It never dried from that wet feeling so I added a light dabbing of Laura Mercier powder to help it along.
An hour later I did a check in and was disappointed to find it had thinned out on the nose, chin and cheeks to the point where it had almost disappeared. What was left was some kind of weird pore clinging film; white spots where the foundation had sunk into the pores and separated from the surface of the skin. I had foundation pox :-(
It had also settled into my forehead lines and was thinning out under the eyes.
Despite the setting powder, it felt wet again and upon lightly touching my face, my fingertips came back with product on them. 3 hours later, it didn't get much worse, but I felt paranoid that it was vanishing off my face and I couldn't wait to get home and fix it.
When I got home, I dabbed on a few dots and again, like magic everything went back to perfect in seconds. I LOVE how this applies! But here I am two hours later, as if I never touched up at all. The pox is back and the transfer is crazy. The wear is just utterly heartbreaking given how beautifully this goes on.

Concealers -NARS -Radiant Creamy Concealer

on 2/23/2018 10:11:00 PM


It has absolutely no lasting power at all. I wore it for a few hours, inside a temperature controlled building and didn’t sweat or strain at all. It’s such an expensive and over rated disappointment of a product.

Palettes -NARS -NARSissist Loaded Eyeshadow Palette

on 2/23/2018 7:45:00 PM


Excellent quality and gorgeous selection of warm and neutral shades. Shades do kick back powder in the pans but they are so pigmented and easy to work with. They also wear really well when used in conjunction with my Mac Soft Ochre paint pot. My favourite shades are Dover, Beaumaris, Splendor and Versailles.

Very expensive price tag but the quality of the shadows are excellent and the packaging is sturdy and very travel friendly. It’s one of my go to favourite neutral palette and I would highly recommend

Concealers -NARS -Soft Matte Complete Concealer

on 2/23/2018 12:23:00 PM


This is my go to daily under eye concealer. I used Bobbi Brown corrector in peach in the past for years but don't need to use a corrector and concealer no longer. This blends beautifully, rids all of my dark hereditary under eye issues and a PERFECT color that's no too yellow or ashy. Blends well with the setting powders I've been using. NC40 and use the color Macadamia.

What it doesn't do is cake or pill, don't use too much, make sure to blend well and set w/ powder.

Blush -NARS -Luster

on 2/23/2018 12:04:00 PM


I purchased this a few years ago but just kept in storage because it wasn't working for me at the time. It didn't show up on my face pretty much and probably using the wrong blush. Maybe my coloring has changed because I love it now! I was using it for a straight 6 months before I finally repurchased. NC40ish here and other blushes turn different colors on me. Swatches of coral or peaches are so pretty but eventually turn reddish during the day, maybe I get flushed and warm, but this stays a true apricot w a nice sheen. Also does not turn orange on me. I wanted to love Madly just to change things up a bit but had to return. It was beautiful swatched but on my face just turned muddy whether I put a little or much more. Luster blends beautifully on my skin, lasts most of the day, finely milled, and the apricot color perks me up my face like no other blush has in a long time. In person or in pictures looks airbrushed so thank you NARS!
