Eye Shadow -NARS -Danger Control Eye Shadow Palette

on 2/18/2018 6:06:00 AM

NARS Danger Control Eye Shadow Palette had me very exited for some beautiful duo chomatic and holohraphic colors.  Unfortunately this isn't really what the NARS Danger Control palette is mostly made up of.  The colors are lacking enough pigment to be truly holographic or duochrome.  The colors in this palette are six subdued colors that will suit someone looking for the no makeup-makeup look or someone looking for a few light colors. I was hoping for some transformative or holo colors, but none of these colors are either. The shadows apply well and last all day but... for the price, $49, six pans is just crazy~ My more detailed review and swatches can be seen here:

Lipstick -NARS -Audacious - Anita

My HG lipstick! Already use the 4th tube -yes am addicted to it. Creamy formula, perfect color for my NC 25 skin, eventho its not transferproof it does have great staying power. Very comfort to wear. Simple yet classy packaging with the magnetic thing that keeps your tube safely

Foundations -NARS -Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation

on 2/15/2018 6:26:00 PM


I'm so surprised at the negative reviews of this foundation! But then again, everyone's skin is different, so it makes sense that it won't work for some. I disagree with a review further down that this foundation is similar to Sheer Glow and that if you hate SG you'll also hate this - I hate, I mean HATE Sheer Glow. It is one of the worst foundations I have EVER tried. BUT I LOVE the new NARS Natural Radiant! It couldn't be more different to SG for me - It has more coverage, is slightly thicker and sits SO nicely. Sheer Glow accentuated every pore and dry piece of skin I had on my face - Natural Radiant didn't do either of those things.

WEAR & FINISH: I got a sample and got about three wears out of it. On the second day I wore it, I spent the whole morning walking around in heat and carrying heavy things, walking up and down stairs etc., in Australian summer heat and humidity. I was sweating BALLS and this foundation did not move!! It is as good as Double Wear for me in that regard. It lasted all day (from about 5:30am to 8pm) and did not settle into pores, did not make my skin look dry etc. That being said, I do not have large pores and have fairly normal skin. I am also not oily AT ALL because I am on Roaccutane, so that could definitely be a contributing factor of its lasting power. I cannot speak for how it would work with oily skin. It did settle a little into the laugh lines around my mouth, but it wasn't drastic and that happens for me with most foundations, as I talk and move my mouth around a lot during the day, as everyone does. I was not expecting a lot from this foundation because I hated Sheer Glow that much, but this is pleasantly 10 times better than SG. It has great coverage and a little goes a looong way.

COVERAGE: When I first tested this out, I put about as much as I normally use for my Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk (which is a lot sheerer than this) and it was way too much. It covers my acne scars really well without being so full coverage that you can't see my freckles around my nose and upper cheeks - which I like, because I like when you can see your skin coming through a foundation. It maintains your youthfulness and prevent skin from looking really flat. Like GA Luminous Silk, this foundation felt really weightless when I used it and made my skin look like skin - in that case the "natural radiant" aspect. It reminds me a lot of GA LS, with more coverage.

COLOUR: The colour is also perfect - NARS have really aced the pale, yellow spectrum (it's why I tried for so long to perservere with Sheer Glow, because the colour was perfect). I am a fairly pale, yellow-toned gal, so finding pale enough yellow-toned shades is often very hard. I used shade Gobi and it was perfect. For reference, I am shade 3 in GA LS and NC15/20 in MAC Studio Sculpt.

Blush -NARS -Orgasm Blush

on 2/15/2018 1:51:00 AM


I remember purchasing this after I got my first paycheck ever! I was so excited to start using this blush I had seen everyone rave about. Well that turned out to be a dud. No matter what I did, it gave me crazy bumpy skin whenever I applied it. It was like clockwork. I still haven't figured out what it is about this blush that my skin hates. And secondly, I had to sadly admit to myself I didn't even like the color. It's GORGEOUS in the pan. But I just don't find intense gold shimmery cheeks flattering at all.
