Concealers -NARS Cosmetics -Radiant Creamy Concealer

I have been using this stuff for years.
It's one of the few concealers that has been able to cover up my dark under eyes.

This concealer is super epensive where I live (around 50 USD) but I would definitely repurchase and recommend it.
I'm around an NC20 and use the shade Vanilla, which is a pretty good match.

I'm 24 and have oily skin, so a dry undereye area isn't really a concern for me. I can use this concealer underneath my eyes without any problems. It's not too dry, it doesn't crease and blends out super nicely. It's not quite a mousse but also not a straight cream concealer. Very weird texture, but one that literally blends itself. I don't know what type of magic Nars used when formulating this but it's truly amazing and unique.
The coverage is high medium/high (depending on what you're used to). Definitely enough for me. And the lasting power is amazing! It doesn't crease or get oily throughout the day. I just reviewed the TF Born This Way Super Coverage concealer and with that one my mascara smeared like crazy. With this one it doesn't at all. My underye looks fine even after a 12-13hrs day
I pair this with EL Double Wear foundation and I know I'll be good no matter how long the day is or how oily my skin gets!

I've been using this for roughly 2 months and it's the first concealer in a long time that I like equally as much as the Mac Pro Longwear Concealer (Which I've been using for 6+ years at this point!).
BTW: I've only ever applied it with my fingers so I can't speak on how it would look with brushes or a beauty blender. I think due to the rather moussey consistency finger is the best choice. Blends it it super quickly and seamlessly! I set it with powder, too but that's what I do anyways with all concealer.

Lipstick -NARS Cosmetics -Sheer Lipstick - Gipsy

The Nars sheers are among my favorite in the entire world of lipstick. They’re been around for a long time and are now overshadowed by newer formulas and brands, but the ones I own (Gipsy, Shrinagar, and Damage) are absolutely perfect lipsticks. I feel like a broken record, but the older Nars lipstick line has some of the most wondrous and interesting colors. Every shade has something special about it that differentiates it from possible dupes. It’s real artistry and it makes me feel like they were created for love vs money.

Anyway, Gipsy is a muted neutral red that’s so easy to wear and perfect for both work and going out. You can manipulate it from a light rosy flush to medium-opaque with how many layers you apply. It feels comfortable on, is moisturizing—doesn’t last crazy long but it’s not bad at ALL for a sheer. It sinks in a bit and leaves a slight stain. It leans more rust than berry, but overall it’s just a sheer browny red. I see why someone compared it to MAC Hot Tahiti (another one of my absolute favorites tbh) but I think HT has more of a berry tone. It’s easy to apply, reapply, and wear all day without having to stress about it. It’s not cheap obviously.

Gipsy is a conceptual shade; I’m sure it was literally inspired by all the name conjures up. It makes me feel exotic and sensual without feeling like I’m trying too hard or like I look too made up. For reference, I have dark hair/eyes and pale olive skin and prefer a medium-natural look. It gives a juicy and mysterious aura to your face.

These are all the NARS sheer lipsticks (for my reference and yours!):

Many, especially the lighter shades, are very very sheer. The deeper shades are definitely more robust. If you have darker skin, I strongly urge you to try Tanganyka!

Mascara -NARS Cosmetics -Climax Mascara

Bought this mascara during its recent launch and I just love it! It’s a wet formula, coats the lashes evenly, I don’t get much clumping with this formula even after multiple applications. Adds good length and volume, lashes are nicely separated.I don’t notice flaking, maybe some smudging but not nearly bad as some other mascaras I’ve tried ie: UD perversion mascara. The formula washes off easily, no clinging residue. The formula is non irritating for me which is a bonus. This mascara has immediately gained HG status with me as I am very particular with my mascaras only a few brands make the cut in my makeup arsenal. On my second tube...


Liquid -NARS Cosmetics -Sheer Glow Foundation

The packaging has no pump and the foundation is too expensive for this kind of packaging. The was matched to Deauville but it was not olive enough for me. I found it cakey. Really disliked.

Really good pigments that last a long time. Weirdly the NARS bronzer breaks me out terribly but this doesnt.

Lips -NARS Cosmetics -Satin Lip Pencil in Rikugien

cant use my usual thick pencil sharpener to sharpen it, the color is not anything special on my yellow based light skin, the formula is light and smooth feeling, it's like tinted balm with its sheerness as well and feel would repurchase but not a bad product just not my preference

I like nothing about this. Hardly covers anything and it is definitely not glowy! Too bad I paid so much for it. I had great expectations from this.

NOT discontinued. Rather, available only in refill form, for Pro Palette. Visit Nars website. Gorgeous color! Especially for pale olives like me!

I LOVE this palette. I’m so devastated that I didnt get a back up. Both the bronzer and highlighter formulas are incredible and very buildable! My favourite face palette, if you get the chance to pick this up somehow, go for it! The only thing I could say is this probably won’t work for deep skin tones

Lipstick -NARS Cosmetics -Orgasm

Pros:
Beautiful shimmer

Cons:
Very, very sheer
Rubs off quickly

Overall
3.5* - it is a little too sheer for my tastes


Blush -NARS Cosmetics -Orgasm Blush

I ordered this almost 2 years ago and still have almost a full tube. I did not get the powder version, I got the cream stick version in orgasm. It is a very pretty pink but it is so shimmery! It gives your cheeks a nice flushed look. I wish I'd bought the powder version instead because I'm thinking it might be less shimmery?
I barely use this only because when I do my daughter asks me why I'm sparkly! I'm not into sparkly makeup. Unfortunately because of the shimmery bits in it I will not be purchasing this again if I ever run out! I should probably check expiration dates of cream blush because I'm sure it'll expire before I ever use it all up.


Lipstick -NARS Cosmetics -Audacious Lipstick (All Shades)

Nars Audacious lipsticks are very creamy.
They go on in a thick layer and are fully opaque in one swipe. The formula is very velvety, the lipstick doesn't slide around.
The issue that I have with these lipsticks is exactly the same as the previous reviewer. They accentuate every line that I have on my lips and look very aging. I'm at the point of my life where I look for the products that make me look better and younger, this is not one of those.

Highlighters -NARS Cosmetics -Highlighting Powder - Albatross

on 11/9/2018 9:55:00 AM

This is another product keep coming back to. I like the sheen/highlighting without glitter that I get with it. I hate glitter falling down under my eyes and on my cheeks. I will also use this to highlight my cheekbones, above my upper lips and middle lover lip.

The material on the outside of the package is not appealing. It collects makeup dust and oils.


Blush -NARS Cosmetics -Orgasm Liquid Blush

I love this liquid blush. I had tried the original powder version of Nars Orgasm years ago, aware that it was a cult favourite, and I had not loved it. The powder version has a more orange/warm colouring and on my blonde and tan complexion it didn't make a very flattering impact. I think the powder is nicer on brunettes. As a blonde, I prefer a slightly more pink/cool shade to bring out my colouring. This liquid blush has that. The tiniest amount really brightens my appearance, and the bottle lasts for absolutely ever. Love love it.
