Blush -NARS Cosmetics -Blush - Exhibit A

This blush is great when you need to finish your look off with the tiniest pop of color. Definitely not a blush to liberally sweep up with a fluffy brush - I learned that the hard way early on. But just a light tap on each cheek gives a really beautiful glow. Since so little is needed this blush will last forever.

Liquid -NARS Cosmetics -All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation

Some people really like this foundation.
I am not one of them.

I have combination skin. I bought shade Barcelona, my skin tone is medium but with warm undertones. This shade was a bit too yellowey. But not completely wrong for me.

It comes out very runny and watery, and the pump only disperses a small amount of product.
But saying that there is a lot of coverage in this foundation, a little can go along way.

I just couldnt find the best way to work this product, a Beauty blender tends to soak it up because its so watery. And using a brush didn’t really work either, as it says to do, using your fingers is probably the best way.

I just didnt really like it. I found it to go dry in certain places and made me look a bit cakey. I did like the coverage but it didn’t even last song on my face.
I would not describe this as long wearing or luminous at all. I ended up giving this to my sister. Who hated it.

Pros.

* full coverage.


Cons.

* not luminous or long wearing
* can enchance texture, dryness and fine lines
* runny formula is hard to work with.

I paid full price for this, which makes it a bit of an investment for me but boy, is it worth every penny! This is my go-to foundation now. It stays put through a long day at work and I can still go out after that and my face will still be fine. It feels genuinely weightless, yet does give me enough cover if I need it for any imperfections. I use Fiji and it is ideal for me in this (though interestingly, Alaska was the right shade in the Tinted Moisturiser- just saying...). I really love Nars anyway but this is a great foundation if your skin is a bit dry and you need something to hang on in there without looking like it's mask-like. Beyond better than EL Longwear imo. And no, I don't need primer either...

Ma fondation favvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvv jamais! Il est super léger mais très couvert. Ça laisse une belle finition. C'est comme une finition satinée mais pas trop lumineuse au point que votre visage semble gras. J'ai la peau grasse / mixte et je n'ai aucun problème avec les huiles qui viennent ou qui collent aux taches sèches. C'est un peu cher mais cela en vaut vraiment la peine. J'ai essayé beaucoup de fondations et aucune d'entre elles ne se compare à celle-ci. Je suggère à chacun d'obtenir un échantillon chez Sephora et de voir la magie se produir


Mascara -NARS Cosmetics -Climax

I am suprised about the negative comments on MA.

For me, this is a very nice mascara. Gives everything I am looking for: lenght, volume, even sume curl. And most important: it does not smudge at all. I have very oily eyelids, and nearly all mascara's smudge on me. This one does not. And the price is very affordable.
Of course, mascara is very personal, what suits one will not necessarily give the same good results for another.

In any case... I like!

Blush -NARS Cosmetics -Liquid Blush

These are the BEST liquid blushes I've ever tried. They are suuuuper intensely colored and you only need a drop for both cheeks. They can be blended out easily with fingers but I prefer the sponge (because they're actually a bit TOO intense if you use fingers). The finish is dewy and super natural, like you're glowing from within. I can't get enough of this product and I've been using it daily for months.

Note on the packaging - I bought the blush back when there was no pump available for it and I hated the glass stick dropper. You can't control how much comes out and you just have to wait for some product to drip on to your hand or your finger. That's really the only con with this product.

Lips -NARS Cosmetics -Satin Lip Pencil in Rikugien

on 10/9/2018 3:45:00 PM

I have had a couple of these deluxe sizes from Sephora. I like the color as it's a very good basic rosy nude and easy to apply without being too precise or needing a mirror. The color lasts a long time and I don't find it too shiny or glittery - satin is a good descriptor. I don't like that you have to sharpen it. I have the Nars sharpener (specifically for these pencils as I have several colors) and that works, but the product is so soft that it gunks up the sharpener. Also, you have to be careful in applying not to crush the tip of the pencil. I do like this pencil, but I wouldn't purchase as there are drugstore options with same color/wear and better packaging for much less!

Concealers -NARS Cosmetics -Radiant Creamy Concealer

Overall I really like this as an under eye concealer. I dab a few dots under my eye and use my ring finger to blend in before applying my powder foundation. It lasts all day and a little goes a long way. I haven't had any issues with creasing, but I also make sure to hydrate my under eyes very well at night before bed as well as in the morning before applying any makeup.

I have combination, acne-prone, sensitive skin...no issues with this product and I've been using it for a good 2 years or so.

I've finally found my HG fnd, after believing such a thing didn't exist. I have combo leaning dry skin and this formula agrees with it perfectly. It makes my skin look dewey, but I don't look like a grease ball at the end of the day when my oils eventually breaks through. This provides just enough coverage to even out my skintone. The color mont blanc is the best skin match I've ever found. When I was testing it out in store, I swiped it over my cheek and it matched my tone, before I had even blended it in. I usually have the issue of fnds cracking and creasing in my smile lines that run from nose to mouth, no matter what I've primed with. Not so with this product and it's been a revelation! The only con I've found with this fnd is there's no pump, you have to buy it separately and I find that pretty annoying. $47usd and you can't even put a pump on it?!! Come on Nars... Besides that, this is still the best I've ever found. If you have fairly clear skin that leans dry this just might be perfect for you. Highly recommend!

Bronzers -NARS Cosmetics -Bronzing Powder - Laguna

My all-time favorite bronzer. I have never tried another one I love as much as this! It's the perfect tone for a variety of skin types, doesn't appear dusty on the skin, applies just the perfect amount to blend out easily and look natural. It isn't shimmery and the compact comes with a fantastic mirror for makeup on the go. I will 100% buy this again - it is a holy grail bronzer for me.

Loose Powders -NARS Cosmetics -Light Reflecting Loose Setting Powder

foto

Before I begin commenting on this gorgeous powder, I want to add that I use this ONLY on my under eyes to set my concealer.
Sometimes I do lightly dust it all over my face for a bright, natural finish with 0 microshimmer.
I have been using this powder for over 1.5 years now!

This powder is the MOST REFLECTIVE SETTING POWDER I'VE EVER SEEN/SWATCHED! It's INSANE how much light it reflects. And it lasts for HOURS (over 10)!

I used to apply the Laura Mercier 'Secret Under Eye Brightening Powder' or 'Translucent powder', but both caused a very dry,cakey finish. So I wanted a real brightening powder solely for my under eye, because I don't like to use concealers under my eyes daily. This powder is fantastic in brightening them, doesn't cause caking...not to mention 0 creasing ALL DAY!

**However I DON'T RECOMMEND this product if you are going to take ANY flash photos during the day/night.

**PROs:
- Really brightens the eyes/face without microshimmer/glitter & extra colour
- Blurs the skin naturally
- Prolongs your makeup... alot
- Prevents caking & creasing
- Less drying than the Laura Mercier translucent powder
- Doesn't clog pores or cause acne

**CONs:
- NOT SUITABLE for flash photography or bright lights photography
- May not be suitable for very dry or mature skin
- Quite expensive for the amount of product you're getting

I'm going to preface my review by saying that I paid the full $76 for a bottle of this foundation. I would obviously expect the product to be really good.

Anyway, if you do intend to get this, do yourself a favour and get a good primer and finishing powder. I tried to see how the product would hold sans primer and powder and I have never worn such a mess on my face. Then I used it with a primer and powder that I've been using all the time and OH GOD. It settled into all the pores I have on my poor little face and it became so unbelievably ugly after just two hours. A TRUE ATROCITY. Worse thing was that I bought this just for my overseas trip, thinking that it would look great. I did not have a back-up. (p.s. the place I went to was constantly at around 16-degree Celsius so I did not sweat much)

I bought a better primer and finishing powder and the foundation finally peaked. (p.s. it was the day of my flight back home DAMN YOU NARS!!!!) It was beautiful. I finally saw what they meant by "oh my god it looks like my real skin!!!". My flight was about 7.25 hours so I had it on for about 15 hours. It did not look too bad at the end of it all even though it almost looked wet instead of radiant. I, however, rather look like I just washed my face than what I looked like the days before that.

Now that I'm back home (33 degree Celsius), nothing I do seem to help it stay in place. So, no I will not repurchase.

Concealers -NARS Cosmetics -Radiant Creamy Concealer

This product has a nice colour range and the texture at first if very creamy. I have dark circles under my eyes and need quite a bit of coverage, I am also now 35 years old and am starting to get a bit drier under my eye area. This looks really nice at first, but it looks very creasy and dry on me within an hour and just starts looking worse and worse throughout the day.

However - if you want to use this concealer for other purposes such as pimples, redness etc, it covers quite well, but I wouldn't recommend this product to people with dark eye circles looking for a smooth finish.

Its my HG foundation at the moment, I have many foundations from drugstore to department store and When this foundation came out I wasn’t planning on buying or trying, until They gave a sample with my purchase, I gave it a try out of curiosity and I was amazed how beautiful it is , it melts just like butter into the skin and gives you natural finish covering all the flaws , I didn’t trust it the first time and got more sample to try for a week to see if it breaks me out or not because its very long wearing and some long wearing foundations do that , it didnt break me out and surprisingly I loved my skin the whole week , I got so many compliments on how beautiful my skin looks and my colleagues even asked me what skincare I used , I told them about this foundation and they couldn’t believe a foundation can be this beautiful ! We all went together and bought the full size , I’m using it nonstop every day for 2 months now and I love it more every day

Just wish there was more pinky shades, I literally poured half of med 1.5 and med 2 in to one bottle. That gives me my closest match.
