Liquid -NARS -Sheer Glow Foundation

foto

I've tried many foundation before ranging from Revlon to Guerlain and GA, this is by far the most disappointing one. It wears off easily even with the help of Laura Mercier's loose powder and setting spray from UD, especially around the T zone, and the foundation does not go along well with oily/combination skin as the layer of foundation will turn into muddy patches later in the day.

The foundation is no where near "sheer glow", it's not sheer and it looks pretty heavy on the face. It's better when I apply it with wet sponge.

The foundation leaves my skin in a bad condition with bumps after I have been using it for half a year, which is what I did not expect as this is so much more expensive than Revlon which I have experienced the same condition (and Revlon does not wear off this easily..)

So, definitely an under-average product for me.

This is beautifully packaged yes but that’s expected from a $60 foundation. While it finishes beautifully it does not last, gets oily and transfers like crazy, my $12 Milani wears better than this. So sad, now sitting in my drawer wasting away.
Save your money ladies there are far more better foundations there at the same price range and better that perform far longer than this one. So so disappointed, what a waste of money 😖

This made my combo/clog prone skin super oily and shiny it also felt like I was wearing foundation (heavy). I’d recommend this for those that are dry/normal. I prefer my it cosmetics CC cream to this as it leaves me with a little glow but not oily. Coverage is medium.


Lipstick -NARS -Do Me Baby

I have this pencil in 3 shades, and love them all... Do Me Baby is the perfect mix of mauvy plum, not drying, it's long lasting, and is really the only matte of any kind I can tolerate.. It's not a super dry/flat/crackly matte, it's extremely comfortable and creamy even. The only negative for me is I wish they were twist up like the Tarte Lingerie ones, I really hate having to sharpen these, and had to deduct a lippie for that reason... It's enough of a hassle that it has made me not buy any more of them, and I have been buying more of the Tarte ones since they are twist up.. But I do love the ones I have from NARS.

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:

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

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.

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.

I bought this especially to use on my waterline after Sephora sales person assured me that this is so good for waterlines. She was wrong, it didnt stay on my waterline more than an hour before dissappearing.


Blush -NARS -Sin

I don't know what took me so long to try a NARS blush but I'm so glad I finally did. Sin is a berry color (fair girls don't let the color berry scare you off. It's not dark). On my NW20 skin it gives me a very natural flush. I use a light hand and just build up until it looks just right. It's not glittery at all. It buffs into my skin beautifully and gives my cheeks a beautiful glow. I'm in love with this blush and have been wearing it everyday. It's perfect for fall / winter. I now want to try other NARS blushes, although I find Sin absolutely perfect for me so I don't know if there's any other blush I'd love as much as this one.

Immediately settled into my pores, making it look as if I had tiny white dots all over my face. The texture also left a lot to be desired. For the price this product is disgraceful.

When I returned it to Ulta the rep asked if something was wrong with it. I said “No, other than I hated it.” She asked me what I was wearing at the time... I was wearing Wet n Wild! She said it looked great. I responded that it is a better product at ten times less the cost.

I will try Lancôme or something, because I’m still looking for more coverage and more yellow tones.

NARS idea of The Big O is a Big NO for me. And like Adrienne1973 below, I'm baffled at the insistence that this shade is universally flattering. I'm fair/cool toned and the 2 times I've suffered this blush, it was for occasions where a professional makeup artist was hired. Regardless of layering, it pulled orange in day/natural light and looked downright awful in flash photography.

I'm glad I never wasted any money on this product, but I would pay to burn those photos if I could.

I really like the way this feels on the skin, but.....

OK... 16 hrs? REALLY? Hell to the no. I had it on for less than five and it would seem that what hadn't rubbed off onto my phone or my clothes had settled into EVERY.SINGLE.PORE. My fine lines looked like the Grand Canyon. It wasn't pretty.

Hard pass.
