Lip Gloss -NARS Cosmetics -Triple X

I know this is just a clear gloss but i think its good for what it is. ts not as sticky like mac or glossier. Its thinner consistency than the others. Its shiney without the super goopey feeling. Not ass shiney as glossier but its more comfy. It doesnt last long though. This will wear glossy for a couple hours then dry down to a satin finish. I like to pair this with nars lip liner in vence for a natural nude lip. I gave 4 stars because of price. i wouldn repurchase but its nice to have. [ i am always trying new glosses, have not found my hg yet ] i def think you can find better clear gloss for less than half the price.

My favorites glosses is colourpop neat freak. Its even more less sticky and comfy for 6 dollars. Clear glosses are hard to find but i heard elf is great too.

Eye Shadow -NARS Cosmetics -Velvet Shadow Stick

on 6/2/2018 1:54:00 AM

I have this in oaxaca in the mini version. I use this for my outer lower lashline and i love it. The only downside is im not sure if its long lasting because i never wear makeup over 5 hours but it does stay put for that. I can swipe this on the lids for a 5 minute makeup look if i needa be out the door but want something something on the eyes. This color is what i wish mac paintpot in groundwork would have been, i really liked that one but it leaned a bit warm on me. This is a true taupe brown shade that also can look a tiniest bit bronzey in some lights but still neutral enough to not look orange, also this has a sheen/subtle shimmer. I am not repurchasing because i dont use this everyday and also its too pricey for what it is.


Lip Gloss -NARS Cosmetics -Velvet Lip Glide

I have this in the la palace shade. Its a classic red with a bit of orangey undertone on my nc20 skin.
i pair this with nars lanikai velvet lip liner for a glossy gradiant burgandy red lip.


Pros
Comfortable
Vibrant but need to swipe x2 to get a good coat
Smells good

Cons
Not long lasting
Non transfer proof

Since this is not matte i didnt really expect this to last long. Its a beautiful formula though id keep this but wouldnt repurchase. Id stick with the audacious lippies by nars.


Concealers -NARS Cosmetics -Radiant Creamy Concealer

I'll start with the fact that I tried this ages ago when it first released. I couldn't find a shade I liked (custard was the closest undertone but too dark). It was too drying on my undereyes. Using it alone looked cakey and aged me drastically. So I returned it.


Fast forward to this year and I bought it a second time recently in Vanilla. It's too light on my skin but I like the coverage. I tend to stick to using it on my nose, redness around my nose, discoloration around my mouth, the broken capillaries by my mouth (looks like: |||), and any healing acne.

I do use the tiniest bit when covering my face. Just the end of the doe foot in the back of my hand. Then I do a second tip of the doe foot on the back of my hand. Then using my ring finger I pat it under my eyes. Focusing on my tear troughs for the most part. Then I use L'Oreal Pro Glow (#1) over it and set it with E.L.F under eye powder. So my under eye looks the most concealed this way. Using the NARS RCC alone is cakey AF on my under eyes.

Eye Primer -NARS Cosmetics -Pro-Prime Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base

Its great for oily lids and i have this in the mini! I dont wear eyeshadow too much so its a good size for its prize(came in a bundle), Its very pricey but i love nars so i decided to splurged try everythubg.

For comparisons, I really dont like too faced shadow insurance it was so watery and oily. The udpp is okay but its not as good as this. Nars just makes outstanding products but idk if i would dish out 26 usd for the full size. I feel that i dont need a primer on days where i dont use liner. I can use the creamy concealer and powder to get the primer effects. Personally i wouldnt repurchase but it still is a great one to get if you are into doing eyeshadows and more bold looks or simply want your liquid liner to stay put.


Lip Liners -NARS Cosmetics -Precision Lip Liner in Vence

on 6/1/2018 7:54:00 PM

this is a neutral nude lipliner that i pair with colourpop neat freak gloss.I am sheer glow in ceylan, nc20nw20 mac. Its not too pink or too orange. I do find it still a bit dark leaning more warm for my natural lip color. I much prefer mac soar because its pink undertone. My natural lip is more pink than brown/peach so i gravitate towards those more. i wouldnt repurchase and also its hard to work with so i wouldnt recommend it doesnt look as natural on me since my real lip color is more pink.

Blush -NARS Cosmetics -Orgasm Liquid Blush

on 5/30/2018 1:00:00 PM

Orgasm has been my favorite blush color for years. I wanted to try the liquid as less expensive alternative the The Multiple. I only rated it as high as 3 lippies for the color. There is no possible way for me not to put too much of this on. i put the tiniest possible dot of this on a brush, use that one dot for both cheeks and still have to wipe half of it off. I look like I got slapped on both cheeks. The only plus is that at this rate one bottle will last forever.

The packaging is terrible. It squeaks every time I open or close the square lid. The applicator is just a stick.

I am returning this for The Multiple. It is a splurge for me, but at least I can control the amount better.

Tinted Moisturizer -NARS Cosmetics -Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30

on 5/30/2018 3:09:00 AM

This is great product. Unfortunately, the sales person at Sephora gave me the wrong colour for my complexion. It's much too light. But I like everything else about it. I just mix it with some darker foundation I have for the summer time and that solves the issue. I find this tinted moisturizer to have great colour payoff, good staying power and it has a buildable, medium coverage. It doesn't have a strong scent, but it does have some perfume. However, the scent doesn't linger. I put this on with a damp beauty blender and find that it goes on pretty flawlessly. Overall, I would buy this again, especially for the summer, but just not in the same shade.

Liquid -NARS Cosmetics -All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation

I bought this in the shade Syracuse a wee dark for my skin tone but it naturally adjusts once its already settled on my skin. I really want to love this foundation but for some reason it looks cakey around my nose area. I get really ocd when my make up cakes around the nose area I tried every possible technique you can think of just to avoid getting cakey but still... :( My face starts to oil up around 3 hrs and it also starts to fade after 5-6 hrs. I will give it another try during rainy season just to test out if the weather has something to do with the staying power LoL. Nars radiant foundation was better than this one will not repurchase.


Lipstick -NARS Cosmetics -Orgasm Lip Balm

on 5/29/2018 5:44:00 AM

Nars promotes this as a lip balm. Thus when I did the very first review for this, I put it in the lip treatment category, then someone started this one here so I added my review under this one too. Nars does market this as a lip balm though, not a lipstick and the proper name is "NARS Afterglow Lip Balm in Orgasm". I specify that in case they bring out more colors than just Orgasm, in the Afterglow Lip Balm line.

This product is one of those great hybrids between a lipstick and a gloss. Not sticky like a gloss but tones of shine. It is in your typical Orgasm peachy - pink with gold shimmer shade. As of now, that is the only color available. I bought this on a whim to hit the free shipping mark on a Sephora order. But it has delighted me. This is the kind of product I LOVE in the summer. Comfortable, juicy, shiny, pop of color on what might otherwise be a bare SPF only face that brings out color and flush in my nw20 deep winter complexion. This thing was made for summer.

The only cons I will say, is that some may find it too expensive for what it is (which is true) and others may not like the sheen that can almost look a touch metallic. It has the same look (but peachy, instead of rosy) as Anastasia's Metallic Rose lip gloss.

I am very glad I decided to buy it. With the end of May looming, this was perfect timing for this purchase. I just have to be sure I don't completely ignore my other summer lippies. ;)

Let me just say that the finish is FLAWLESS! And the shade is perfectttt. Only downside is that it breaks me out along my lower cheek, jawline and chin. If I could wear this foundation every single day for the rest of my life I would do so however I can’t handle the breakout 😭. Packaging is good but the black lid gets dirty quickly

Lipstick -NARS Cosmetics -Orgasm Lip Balm

on 5/28/2018 7:47:00 AM

I’m 63 and - often - I don’t want to be bothered with lipstick and especially not lip gloss, so this is perfect.

It’s lip balm - I have no expectations of it staying on for very long - in fact it would feel gooey if it did. But it is great as “something” instead of bare lips and it does leave my lips smooth.

It isn’t like the Orgasm lipstick - which is heavier and has way more of a sheen and is lighter than the lip gloss which is ultra glossy (to me).

I don’t need a mirror to apply it, the case is a lovely rose gold that I can se in the bottom of my black bag (!) and I don’t feel like a teenager wearing it.

I love the Orgasm color and if that works for you, you might like this.

I think it will be a great summer go-to!

Eyeliner -NARS Cosmetics -Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner - Via Veneto

on 5/28/2018 1:07:00 AM

Its a super black liner thats great for the waterlines. I am thinking of replacing my hg marc jacobs with this one. I was surprised how creamy it was and how easy it glides on. Its not as creamy as the marc jacobs which i do like because that one has too much slip and its longer lasting on ny oily lids. This also stays on the tightline without transfering to the bottom line.

edit: HG HG HG been using this and tossed my marc jacobs to the side


Blush -NARS Cosmetics -Blush - Madly

on 5/27/2018 7:56:00 PM

foto

I am a nars blush lover but i cant get this to work. I want to compare this to mac warm soul because they are very similar. Warm soul is more coral pink beige and madly is more tan orange beige. Madly is blendable if you powder first after foundation. it can be patchy if you dont set the foundation or just go straight on bare face. Mac warm soul is a lot more blendable on bare skin. If you like the pinkier look this wont give that to ya. There is no pink in this blush. It can actually be a bronzer on my skintone.

Reasons i dont like this and wont be repurchasing

Can be finicky and need a very light hand
Too orange/Unnatural on my skintone if too much product applied
Patchy and muddy on bareskin

I cant get this to work but i know why a lot of people rave about this. If you have a slight tan with olive undertones this can look great but for me it just doesnt work on my skin. It pulls very orange and unnatural so i only can use the tiniest bit but that doesnt blend well on bareskin. I dont use powder on the face so this i need to have a tan to use and i dont tan well. Lol very pasty asian skin.

Edit. I tried this with different brushes and i found the nars yachiyo works the best. I dab it into the product then into my hand to get some excess off. I couldnt get it to look right with the stippling brush because it was blotchy. An angled brush was picking up too much and it went on heavily even if i dust the excess off. Its so pigmented that it picks up a lot even with a light hand. I am nc20 so i am on the pale side and the yachiyo feathers it on without being blotchy. It is a bit scratchy but the outcome is worth it. I guess for this blush you need a good blush brush. Its still hard to work with but you get so much product and its pigmented and it does have kickup. Ill keep trying to play with this til its perfect.
