Makeup Brushes -NARS -27 - Yachiyo

Owned this brush twice. I don't entirely know what I was thinking either time I purchased it, and I purged it for the same reason twice. I'm not the best with my money.

Just don't bother. I wouldn't wish this brush on anyone. It is VERY SCRATCHY. And you know what? Twice I read reviews about how uncomfortable this brush is to use and bought it anyway thinking "hey, but the application is supposed to be amazing, so who really gives a toss".

I think there was a time when this brush would have been the gold standard for applying ANY blush. Not anymore. The look is unique and awesome... too bad there are cheaper brushes on the market with the same look, so this one doesn't have a leg to stand on as far as aesthetics are concerned.

Just do yourself a favor and get a Chikuhodo or Wayne Goss brush. WG14 is good. So is the Chiku z-4. If you have $50+ for a scratchy mess of a brush, you have the money for a Goss or Chiku, and you will see that this one is nothing special. Not anymore, at least. Mine is permanently retired, and I'll be damned if I ever buy one again.

Concealers -NARS -Radiant Creamy Concealer

I have tried numerous concealers for under eyes, and this one has to be the best I have used. The price is steep and scary but completely worth it. It is so creamy and just thick enough to provide coverage, but you don't feel it on your skin. It takes seconds to blend and lasts all day on me. I had originally got the mini version to "try", and I used the entire thing up, which is so rare for me. I would recommend just taking the plunge and buying the full size, I don't think you will regret it. It truly works wonders.

I looove this concealer! It is by far my favorite concealer ever. It's very hydrating, pigmented (but not caky), and radiant. When you apply under your eyes it really brighten up the skin. Never found anything like this before.

Plus: didn't break me out. Because I have ace-prone skin, I tend to avoid moisterizing concealers. But this is the best.


Blush -NARS -Liquid blush

I think what shocked me the most was the sticker price. 30 dollars for a blush is just way out of my price range. Don't get me wrong the color and pigmentation are pretty but for thirty dollars? I think it's too expensive.

I want to like this foundation so badly. I love how it blends into my skin and does not feel heavy. But it broke me out everytime I wear it! I do not experience this even with drugstore brands.. this is really disappointing.


Bronzers -NARS -Sunwashed Diffusing Bronzer - Casino

on 11/17/2017 1:32:00 PM

This is the perfect shade for my olive skin. Pigminatation is not overwhelming and it's easy to work with, looks luminous and natural, buildible.. idk it's perfect. My holy grail, what else can a bronzer do 🤔


Concealers -NARS -Soft Matte Complete Concealer

This concealer is amazing! I love that it doesn't crease easily under my eyes or smile lines. It also blends easily with your fingers though I find it looks better blended out with my Beauty Blender. It also doesn't look cakey at all on me. Don't expect a full coverage, thick concealer because this falls more on the natural to medium coverage and that's what I prefer.

Soft Matte describes this just right because it is matte but not too matte that it looks flat or fake. Also, considering the constant heat and humidity where I'm from, this concealer holds up pretty well. It's also easy to reapply throughout the day if I really want to. On most days, I just wear this alone or with the Becca Backlight Priming Filter as my base and it looks great either way.

Also, I read some reviews saying the consistency of their concealer changed in a month to something drier and harder to work with. However, I have had mine for almost 6 months now (with nearly daily use and I'm only halfway through it) and it is still as creamy as when I first used it. Just be sure to close the cap securely and not leave it out too long.

Prior to this, I used the Urban Decay Naked Skin concealer but I much prefer this. The application is easier and the finish is more natural on my skin.

I have already bought a backup :) My shade is in Crème brulée!


Eye Shadow -NARS -Stud Hardwired Eyeshadow

This shade is stunning. I just purchased during sephora sale. Sephora website still says exclusive/limited edition, but these have been available for quite a while now, so they don't seem that limited to me.

The color has a gorgeous sparkle. I used a glitter primer (E.L.F) and pressed extra on with my finger to get maximum sparkle. Still looked amazing by the end of the day.

I think the price is a bit too high, but I keep buying nars eyeshadows, so I guess I can't complain. This looked like it would be my favorite of the hardwired formula.

I think if you like sparkle and you like taupes you will really enjoy this.

Highlighters -NARS -Highlighting Blush Powder in Albatross

on 11/16/2017 10:55:00 PM

foto

Definitely a good highlighter for those who like highlighters without big messy glitter particles. Albatross gives a beautiful golden sheen to your skin. Don't over do it though, as it can be a bit much. I use this with the Real Techniques setting brush, which I think makes a really good combo since the setting brush is quite small and applies your highlighter precisely where you want it. Overall Albatross is a good highlighter and I don't regret buying it, but it's just not a wow-product for me, and also the price is quite high

Lipstick -NARS -Audacious - Anita

I bought this product during Sephora's 20% off sale. I would definitely not purchase this full price as it is very expensive - still expensive despite the 20% off but I got the holiday edition and came in a pretty gold case and I got suckered in. This colour is really pretty and is a MLBB colour. For reference, I am MAC NC30 with yellow undertones, and it works well on me. The lipstick gives a great colour pay off and lasts for a while on my lips. I definitely love the packaging of the product. I don't notice any scent to the product, but then again I never really smelled it either as usually once you apply it, you would be able to smell it. I think this is a lovely neutral color and good for everyday wear. I will not likely repurchase as there are so many lipsticks out on the market that you can't just stick to one lol.

I have conflicted feelings about this concealer, but overall think it's still a good product which is why I gave it 4/5 lippies.

It is EXCELLENT for covering up blemishes and pigmentation spots, because it is medium-full coverage and easily buildable. The fact that it's a pot concealer allows you to more easily control the amount you use and this is my go-to for patting onto my face in the mornings when I've just arrived at work and want to cover up some redness. When I first purchased it, it worked well for under the eyes as well. However, within a month the consistency of the concealer changed and it became a hair thicker and drier - not drastically so, but enough that if I now use it under the eyes it sits in my fine lines, looks thick and crepey, and overall just ages me. If you have very dry skin I would steer clear as it is likely to emphasise texture.

I'm around an NC30-35 and the shade Ginger blends into my skin perfectly, even without foundation. So this is now my go-to face concealer for no-makeup makeup days, though I have to use something else for the eye area.

Lipstick -NARS -Belle De Jour

Belle is a great color for my lips. Comparing it to Bambi which was just yellow-orange horridness on my lips, Belle is much softer, less chalky looking and natural. It provides a neutral lip color that looks like your lips themselves rather than looking like you caked concealer on them.


Blush -NARS -Oasis

Coloring - NC20, leaning more neutral than warm; hazel eyes, dark brown hair.

This little gem was in my purge pile, ready to be given away or tossed into the trash. I dug it out and gave it ONE LAST TRY. I'm not sure what changed since the first time I used this to now, but I am obsessed with it. I love the cool-toned, purpley neutralness of it and the very slight shimmer. I wear it with cooler/purple eye looks and it is oh so flattering. I catch myself during the day and think, "boy, my blush looks AMAZING." It almost gives me a contoured look without having to use a blush and a contour product. I am so so so glad I didn't end up getting rid of this one.

My have oily/combination skin and found this concealer to be very drying. I tried using this under my eyes with with 2 different eye creams and alone and the result after a few hours were always the same - flaky, creasey mess. It looked like I had eye sand under my eyes and when I tried to blend it, the product would look worst.

I also tried it as a contour and it left my nose looking flaky / skin pealing effect.

I have now switched to It cosmetics bye bye under eye and love it!
