Palettes -NARS -9951 Pleasures of Paris Palette

I really like the color range on this palette. I like a little bit of purple and rosey pink in my eyeshadow palettes for days where i feel like the nude brown look is boring. Adding a bit of purple is not too crazy but still very pretty. I dont use this palette on its own i always incorporate it with matte shades like the portobello duo in the crease.

-I can use nepal the light rose pink shade all over the lid on top of orgasm multiple on lazy days when i want a shimmery summer eye look
-The beige shimmer is great as a browbone highlight.
-The fez(bronzey) and cordura(grey brown) color obviously are great for outer v.
-The darker purple demon lover is pigmented and a great color for a sultry smokey eye pairing this with kalahari duo.
The shades are mostly shimmers other than the purples(which is a lot more tasteful to be matte for these).
-The lilac purple shade is the only one i have been slighrlt dissapointed with because its not pigmented. But it does have a nice grey undertone that doesnt look chalky even though it can in the pan. But on the eyes iwear this by itself as a wash on natural days where im feeling the matte vibe.

Its a very beautiful palette and the shadows are so creamy and soft to the touch. i rarely get fallout with these and they are very blendable

I always heard bad things about nars shadows but this is an exception. I have heard nars when god created the woman is also a great natural eye palette.

The ones that people have problems with are the shadow duos and also the narcississt palettes. I prefer the old packaging on these. I really do like the black chalkboard matte finish and i dont mind it getting dirty.


Lip Gloss -NARS -Triple X

I know this is just a clear gloss but i love the formula. Its not sticky like mac or glossier. Its thinner consistency than the others. Its comfortable almost like a lip balm but less oily and less glide. Its shiney without the goopey feeling. 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 but nars have outstanding products i will always repurchase and love the brand

Eye Shadow -NARS -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 def purchsing the large size after i finish the this because i really do enjoy using this


Lip Gloss -NARS -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 -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 -Pro-Prime Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base

on 6/1/2018 7:56:00 PM

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 -Precision Lip Liner in Vence

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

Perfect nude lip! pair this with clear gloss like nars triple x is the sexiest natural pout. I am sheer glow in ceylan, nc20 mac. Its not too pink or too orange. Mac whirl is too brown and dark(anti kylie jenner lip) Mac boldly bare was too peach/orange and unatural. Soar made me look mature and older than my age because of the pink/fuscia tone.

This is very neutral and beautiful. Its the perfect nude. its not drying and it stays put if i am not eating anything oily. it does transfer a little bit fades gracefully. i am tempted to try waimea and patong beach in the velvet lip liner !

Blush -NARS -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 -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 -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 -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 -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 -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
