Lipstick -NARS Cosmetics -Bette

on 8/17/2018 11:06:00 PM

I totally bought this because its my name on it. Im so glad i did. Its super comfy and creamy to the lips. It reminds me of the liptensity lippies from mac but less opaque. I had to swipe a couple times to get the best color pay off but its okay because the color is soooo sexy. Its def a dark vampy red almost black lipstick. My all time favorite is diva but this is a true red instead of diva thats more purple and less drying. I pair this with a burgandy lipliner. Lanikai in nars velvet lip liners matches perfectly. I wouldnt repurchase because i rather get the liptensity by mac which is cheaper

Moisturizers -NARS Cosmetics -Luminous Moisture Cream

on 8/17/2018 6:59:00 AM

Got a 2mL sample packet of this from a high end cosmetics shop in PA. I don't like it. Too rich and thick (felt like body cream) and occlusive - and I have dry skin so I thought maybe it would work, but no. Also lots of synthetics - including Butylene Glycol (one step away from anti-freeze) and shimmery Mica (Um, why?).

Not for me.

I just randomly grabbed this to try one day and thought..."I think I like this". I was just itching for a new lipstick too. Then I come here to see what others think of the shade and I am noticing a pattern. NW's, specifically in the 10-25 range are loving this shade ( I am nw20, deep winter)! I read a few things in the reviews that really nailed this shade, but to my surprise, people were referring to it as a warm sheer berry. It is definitely sheer and I never really thought it was that red, so I guess that is accurate. It reminds me of MAC Hot Tahiti, but that can come off much deeper/darker than this shade. It also felt like a sheer less warm version of MAC Brick-O-La. Another reviewer (darkharbour) nailed how I saw this shade when they referred to the color as being "earthy and muted". That is exactly how I see this shade. It is typicially what you might think of as a fall shade (in the muted earthy feel, not the deep vampy feel), but it works all year. I have been wearing it alot this summer because of the juicy light feel.

Now if you have not tried these NARS sheers you may be disappointed, they are sheer. Back in my 20's I would have scoffed at these as too much money, for too sheer of lip or too "dull". But as 44 looms around the corner, these sheer, juicy shades are lip savers! My lips look soft and supple and not like relief maps. I am at the point where even creamy lipsticks can go bad on my lips so these sheer formulas have been making me very happy lately.

I go back and forth on whether I like this concealer or not but recently it's all I use for the last few months. I really do like it but it has its faults. I have dry skin which might make my issues different than others but I find it to be drying on acne. It ends up cakey And doesn't last long. Under the eyes though it's amazing and so skin like. It must be set with powder or it will crease though! The coverage is so good on acne I just wish it stayed looking like it does when first applied longer. I'm almost out of it and I'll probably buy it again unless I find something better.

Unfortunately this did not work out for me. Its too drying, and it doesn’t make my skin look nice. It settled into pores and wrinkles. I wore it for about 3 times and gave up.

Blush -NARS Cosmetics -Goulue

I love this blush, received it quite a while ago as a birthday gift from Sephora I think. It looks very natural and even though I have light skin it matches beautifully. It’s true you have to apply it carefully as you can easily overdo it but if applied lightly it has a minor shimmer and a fresh look! UNFORTUNATLY as so often this shade was not available to buy in the store or I missed it and it was already discontinued when I wanted to buy it, it’s quite annoying as a good matching blush is hard to find 😟

Finally found a under eye concealer that doesn't crease like crazy. I dislike the doe applicator as it applies the product too heavily. I dab some on the back of my hand and use my ring finger to apply to under eye area. Blends easily and can be built up to full coverage. I use vanilla as it fair with a pink tint. Once set with powder lasts all day.

Tinted Moisturizer -NARS Cosmetics -Velvet matte skin tint

I can't with the smell. Smells like straight up alcohol. And it's hard to squeeze out from the package. Do yourself a favor and get the sheer matte or sheer glow instead.

I love the finish of this foundation a lot, like really a lot. The finish is beautiful, very natural looking - people don’t even know I have foundation on. However, this is not a long-wearing foundation. Since my skin is oily, it’s understandable. Once I blot, I’m good to go. The foundation does not oxidize on me. Also, it doesn’t transfer. The shade Punjab matches me well. I’m NC30 in MAC.

Was super excited about purchasing this foundation. The packaging is very pretty and the shade is my perfect shade, however, the formula of this foundation is.....tragic. Super oily, doesn't stay on for more than 2 hours and the heat is something that does NOT work well with this formula. Slides everywhere, I touch my face once and there's residue all over my finger. Miss Laura Mercier cannot even save this foundation. Also, it has given me the absolute worst breakouts. I am typically one who doesn't breakout often, and if i do, it's for stuff like accidentally sleeping with my makeup on, however, every time I wear this my pores get so clogged and then a pimple will form in a day or two. Definitely not worth spending your money one when there are better foundations out there!!

I bought it because my best friends highly recommend this. Actually when I used hers, I love it much. I use shade Alaska. My skin is combo-oily and at that time, I think this is the best choice of my life. However, when the weather changes from hot to cool, my face will be cakey if I use this tinted moisturizer. Even when the weather's hot back, I can't use this as the texture is so cakey. I don't know why. One thing I knew is that I preserve it properly. I never use this again!


Liquid -NARS Cosmetics -All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation

All Day Luminous Weightless (ADLW) is a really nice foundation from Nars. It is fairly similar to Sheer Glow, but the finish of ADLW is much more matte than Sheer Glow and it is slightly fuller coverage. I like this foundation best when applied with a damp sponge as it gives off the most natural finish with a medium-full coverage. I personally find the finish a bit too matte for my liking. I personally prefer a slightly satin/luminous finish and seeing as this product has 'luminous' in the name, I was not expecting something so matte! It did look a bit flat, so I recommend applying this foundation on top of MAC Strobe Cream and applying some highlighter and a spritz of face mist application (unless you love the matte look - then you will love this baby!). This foundation wears very well and lasts through sweating and exercise. It is transfer-proof and long-wearing. It did start to seperate slightly on my chin and around my mouth round the 9 hour mark, but it touches up easily. It is a great base for other makeup products (blush, highlight etc). I honestly wish I could rate this 4.5 lipsticks! I would definitely repurchase if I ever want a truly matte foundation - but until then I will stick with Sheer Glow and instead recommend this lovely product to my matte-loving friends!

Primer/ Corrector -NARS Cosmetics - Smooth & Protect Primer SPF 50

on 8/1/2018 6:13:00 AM

This is the very first primer that I have absolutely loved. A girl at Sephora recommended it to me to go with my NARS timed moisturizer. I felt so supple and lovely. I’ve tried all kinds of primers. When they claimed to smooth pores they only dried out my skin. I used Too Faced Hangover primer and it did absolutely nothing. Becca’s evermatte poreless is too drying. Elf’s primer felt like liquid plastic. And others have been sticky. I have combination skin with it being more reactionary when dried. This primer was like a fluffy, moisturizing, melt into your skin drink that leave a slightly velvety surface perfect for prep. And spf 50! That’s handy

Blush -NARS Cosmetics -Orgasm Blush

foto

I don’t know why people are so crazy with this product. Honestly, I bought it because of the hype. After trying it... It is not really pigmented. I need to reapply it for so many times until the color appeared. However, the peachy pink color is not apparent on my skin. Instead, the golden shimmer dominated my face and thus my face looked like I was applying too much bronzer (whereas it’s the blush!)
I think it doesn’t live to it claims that it suit every skintones. My skin is fair medium.

Blush -NARS Cosmetics -Orgasm Blush

I love the orgasm lipstick. it a really pretty peachy pink that looks pretty on my lips against my pale skin surprisingly so i thought I would love the blush. I didn't though. the peachy pink color isn't so pretty on my cheeks. it went on smoothly and was easy to blend and applied well like a high-end blush should. Its the only Nars blush I've tried but I would wear a Nars blush in a different shade. the other problem I had with the orgasm shade is that it not only didn't compliment my tone well, it also has this youthful tone to it that when applied to my almost 40 year old cheeks, looked out of place and as if I was trying to recapture my youth. I actually gave it to this teenager that works for me and it looked freaking adorable on her, so i bought it for my teenage daughter too and she loved it and it looked beautiful on her so I just feel it's suited for younger women more so.
