Foundations -NARS Cosmetics -Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation

It’s important to always try a foundation for yourself, despite reviews. I was certain this was going to be an oily mess due to the reviews. I read about how this broke up and became an oily mess at the 3 hour mark. I’m very oily but I was willing to take a chance and try this foundation. I primed with Hourglass Mineral Veil and set with Too Faced Peach Perfect Mattifying powder. With that combo it wore just as well as my Estée Lauder Double Wear. In fact it almost looked like it was a tad too drying, especially around my eye area. Definitely need to use an eye cream prior. But I was impressed at how long it lasted and it does have a nice matte finish. Give it a four and I’d repurchase!

I have the shade "Area". Wow. Beautiful! The color reminds me of the 90's. Very smooth, feels like oil. The packaging is very luxurious and classic Nars.

I switched to this because of all the positive reviews but I’m so disappointed. I think this looks beautiful on the skin. It gives a nice, radiant glow but this breaks me out so badly. I never get cystic acne but it’s all over my face. I used this when I went to Europe for a couple weeks and my skin is worse than it has ever been. I’m currently using a topical to help with all the scarring and underlying bumps. I don’t even feel comfortable leaving my house without makeup bc my skin looks so bad. I wasn’t sure that this was the product that was breaking me out, but I tried it again a few days ago and I have FOUR new painful pimples forming. Sooo disappointed that this didn’t work for me :/

Lip Gloss -NARS Cosmetics -Velvet Lip Glide

I used some of my Sephora Beauty Insider points to get a mini tube of this in the shade Bound, a mild pinky-mauve MLBB with just enough sheen for it have a moist (not gloppy) texture. It's lovely but I don't understand this product - what is it supposedly doing that Nars' signature glosses are not? On the Sephora site, Velvet Lip Glides are described as highly-saturated, longlasting color - but Bound is neither of those. I've been using (and loving) Nars regular lip glosses for 14 years. I ADORE them because they have incredible pigmentation. Unfortunately they can be gloppy and overly shiny, and they last only until you have a cup of coffee, when they promptly transfer directly off your lips and onto the cup. The Velvet Lip Glides have more of a satin finish, but they offer almost no pigmentation - I can barely see any color at all in Bound. They also don't last any longer than the regular Nars glosses, and they still transfer like the dickens. Is Bound a pretty MLBB satin-finish gloss? Yes, is it - but there is nothing special about it and I certainly wouldn't pay $26 USD (+ tax = $28) for 0.2 oz (you read that right). Gold - actual gold - is cheaper ($24 USD for 0.2 oz as of today).

Concealers -NARS Cosmetics -Radiant Creamy Concealer

I really tried to like this concealer! I spent a long time researching which concealer would suit my very pale, dry skin and was recommended this one. Unfortunately, it is the worst makeup product I've ever used. The colour is great, very pale and good for highlighting under my eye but it made my makeup cake REALLY bad. I even tried highlighting before my foundation, but got the same result. I tried to persevere, and changed my routine but nothing worked - it just doesn't suit my very dry skin.

The bottle is also really impractical and I had to tap it on a makeup palette to get the last of it out! That's not great for the price you pay, for it.

Liquid -NARS Cosmetics -Sheer Glow Foundation

This is my HG!! Been buying this for the last 7 years now. Throughout each year I'll go out and try several other foundations to see what they're like but I always go back to this one. It gives a lovely dewy finish. It's buildable depending on what type of coverage you feel like going for. It lasts all day and doesn't look cakey on dry skin. Yes there is no pump but don't let that put you off from buying this. Would highly recommend!

Mascara -NARS Cosmetics -Climax

This is an offering from Nars that sales people were going nuts over at Ulta. 3 people showed me their lashes and I was duly impressed by the volume and length on those people.

So I use it and I can build some volume but it takes several coats. Flattens my curl. After 3 or so coats, I had some clumping. Hours later, I had specks of mascara all over my undereye which continued until I took it off. It removed easily with a double cleanse, which it should have since it had been flaking for hours.

Packaging on this mascara is red and beautiful and the grooves on this helps a person hold the mascara wand. Brush is a full and bushy bottlebrush type of wand.

I got it to stay on longer but had to use a mascara primer, which I hate. Thinking of returning this.

Definitely would like to purchase again!
Dolcevita lip crayon is like a dried rose colour which is beautiful.
I would say it will look gorgeous on those girls who just get into a college. I can tell why !
It has such a clean and naive like a next door girl vibe with this color

Very bright, almost neon coloured red lipstick!
I really dig it when first applied on the lips cos it brighten your face.
And also liked that it lasts long with its matte finished.
Incredibly found it versatile when its removed easily by wet tissue. So overall give you 4 out of 5 !
1 minus is that the crayon stick is too thin and light to grab.


Lipstick -NARS Cosmetics -Powermatte Lip Pigment

Purchased a bright geranium red called Don't Stop.Love the applicator which causes it to go on smooth inside the lip lines. It last all day and a little goes a long way. I love Nars but this was my 1st liquid lipstick purchase. Had debated on getting Sephora Always Red which is cheaper. However after trying it out from my sister it was way too drying and patchy.As with any matte lipstick moisturize, exfoliate your lips 1st and use a lip primer(Like MAC).

LOVE this foundation for the time of the month that i need more coverage!

Pro:
-I absolutely love how small the amount of product comes out in every pump, makes it so easy to control!
-good coverage, smooth satin finish and not cakey
-doesnt break me out
-24m shelf life makes it easier to rotate foundations!
-shade range is awesome
-works well with sponge, brush and fingers. I find on me it works best with a flat top kinda brush.
-packaging is lovely and finally, a Nars foundation that i want that comes WITH a pump!

Cons:
-this is pricey here in Canada! *cry*. At least it lasts for 24months :)

10/10 would recommend.

Update : after using this exclusively for a couple weeks it has actually became a current HG it just works so well no fuss easy blend longlasting. Although it’s pricey i would definitely consider to repurchase. Bumping it up to 5 lippies!

Blush -NARS Cosmetics -Orgasm Blush

I get the hype now that I finally got to try this!

I went to Ulta and picked up the tiny, travel version for my bday. I never wanted to spend the $ on this blush even though it is an OG holy grail. I agree that it isn’t as pigmented on the first go as other blushes; however, this stuff lasts on my skin all day and I don’t mind building it up because it is kind of a fail safe for going over board on blush. I think I may even like it more than my Tarte blushes because this formula just lasts on my skin longer!

I’m not sure if I would repurchase this once it is used up just because of the price. These small travel sizes in blush can last me a year and normally I use them up before I try out a new product (unless it’s a drugstore brand that didn’t cost me the same amount as a tank of gas 🙄). However, since I’m enjoying this so much and I know a larger pan would most likely last me years .... maybe I’d do a blush palette? I’d have to see what products are out when I’m in the market for a new blush!

Lip Liners -NARS Cosmetics -Velvet Lip Liner

on 8/18/2018 2:19:00 AM

4 lippies for price but other than that the shade lanikai(burgandy) works with all my red lipsticks. I can use this with vampy reds that are dark. Or bright fuscias. Its very versatile and great to have. I dont like bright reds so this is a good lip liner to darker those shades. It pairs really well with audacious lipstick in bette. Also i wear this and darken the look of liptensity in claretcast by mac. Its a gorgeous fuscia red combo. This lip liner is super velvetty and easy to glide on the lips without too much slip. Its very comfortable on the lips and does not tug like mac lip liners. It reminds me of mac pro long wear lipliners but even more creamy. Its very pigmented and long lasting also. I wouldnt repurchase for the price but i think this will lasts me a long time since its rare for me to wear dark lipsticks. But if i do im def using this to clean things up.


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
