Liquid -NARS -Sheer Glow Foundation

My holy grail one of the BEST foundations I have used. I have been using this for past 8 months on a daily basis, the bottle is still not empty. Medium/Full coverage without feeling to heavy. Covers my acne scars and blemishes well. Works even better with the concealer range also. Perfect for daily wear without looking too cakey and heavy. I have oily skin and suffer from acne scars and it blends well on my skin. The shade/colour ranges are wide as well.

The colour is so beautiful when u see it, but not as beautiful as when i'm wearing on my skin:( somewhat it looks more like highlighter than a blush on because it's so glittery and the pink colour sometimes hard to come out & the gold colour is more dominating.. overall, it's good but not for daily makeup , maybe only for special occations because of the colour..

I learned this foundation from watching Nikki Joy from Australia over Youtube. She raved this as one of the best foundations for oily skin. True enough, honestly I have to agree with her. Just don’t be deceived with the words “sheer glow” if you want medium coverage and you have oily skin. Coverage is sheer to medium depending on how you build it up. Plus this is also good for oily skin cause it gives that enough hydration but not making your face into an oily gunk. I also did not get pimples from using it. My co-workers even complimented how healthy my skin looks and I look glowy. So I can say this is an HG foundation and will definitely repurchase once I ran out.

It is the best! My HG. I am on my 3rd tube and it never disappoints! Mind you, I have got really dark undereyes (my problem since birth). I got deep set eyes too. I have tried a LOT of concealers but this tops off everything. Does not crease. I just had to set it with translucent powder and I'm good to go for the entire day.

I much prefer foundations with a lighter texture. Looked cakey and gross around my nose. I have normal to dry skin with mild texture in the t zone. This went straight into the trash after three applications. Looks great on some people, but not for me.

Blush -NARS -Exhibit A

I've got this in the Unfiltered cheek palette. I love that it's so different to the usual pink/rosy blushes I usually use. It's very pigmented so you need a light hand and a fluffy not too dense brush. Im medium toned (NC30) and it comes up a red-orange on me. I enjoy the quality of nars blushes. The only reason I wouldn't repurchase is its expensive and I have quite a few other blushes I enjoy too, but I would recommend it if you're looking for a slightly different blush colour.


Tinted Moisturizer -NARS -Velvet matte skin tint

I don't agree that this is medium coverage. It feels and looks more like full coverage to me unless you have massive acne scars to cover up and I don't. My issue is fine lines but other than that my skin is good. They come with age and nothing much any of us can do but try to use good skin care and products that minimize them. I absolutely hated this and it's nothing like a tinted moisturizer so I'm not sure why the reviews for this are under tinted moisturizer. It's called Skin Tint and nowhere is moisturizer in the name and it's not recommended for dry skin. My skin is normal, never dry, slightly oily in the T zone at times. This was just a disgusting product for me. It felt thick and heavy and It looked painted on, like a thick clay like consistency and it accentuated every single fine line, hated it! Really hated it! It smells horrible too, like oil paint, but the smell fades really fast. It has SPF 30 and it does oxidize a little, so I would say go down one shade. It is super matte, which I don't like anyway. It did look better when I used a setting spray to make it a little dewier, but it accentuated every single line, even ones I never knew I had. In sunlight it looked awful. I didn't accentuate pore if I used a primer, but I don't have very large pores so that wasn't much of an issue but it did seem to accentuate them with no primer. I love to try new things but this was a definite NO for me. Back to my old faithfuls... Laura Mericer tinted moisturizer. Pixi tinted moisturizer, Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua, Lift or the regular Moisture Rich and Boots No7 Lift and Luminate......( LOVE LOVE LOVE and it's drugstore!!!)

Eye Shadow -NARS -Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow - Himalia

This is vastly becoming my favorite eyeshadow single. I reach for this almost on the daily.

NARS dual intensity in general:
Probably my favorite es formula. They are super pigmented shimmers-- but specks of shimmer don't show up. They literally give eyes the wet look. It's my favorite sort of look.

These last all day for me w no primer and have enough opacity that I don't need a base to cover my veiny, discolored eyelids.

Himalia specifically:

I'm nc15/20, basically in the middle-- pulling neutral more than warm. Like i said my eyelids are discolored so they kinda have a natural shadow darker than my face. I usually pick a brighter shadow bc of this. Mac ricepaper for example has been an es staple of mine for almost a decade. Himalia isn't brighter than my lid-- it almost matches in tonality like a mlbb look. It adds shimmer and dimension and makes my lids look glowy and wet. The shade is a really neutral, maybe slightly warm light bronze. It's just gorgeous I can't rave enough. Understated, but polished. I apply this on my lid w my finger, add mascara and go. It takes seconds.

These are so expensive. I've wanted to try them for YEARS so I wish I did sooner, but now I want to slowly collect them. I have himalia and Rigel, Rigel being a more brightening true gold. I love both but wear himalia almost daily.

I want at least 4 more. Totally worth it IMO.

Lips -NARS -Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Dragon Girl

This is my favorite bright pink based red of all time. The color against my NW 18 skintone gives me a Snow White apperence.

It is a little drying but nothing compared to Ruby Woo by MAC another color I love.

When this wears off I’m still left with a lovely stain.

I also love the color of Icon by Horglass the liquid lipstick and lip gloss.

Grace.

Grace is a gorgeous neon red that I find perfect for the summer or whenever I want to feel positively electric. It's also a sweetly, Betty Draper kind of shade too. This was the first NARS purchase I've ever splurged on - my first foray was the Sephora birthday gift mini pencils which I loved, so I knew I was getting into something good. The packaging is a designer's dream: the sleek-matte feel and look, the magnetic closure, the geometry: I could speak volumes of praise on the packaging alone.

But the color of Grace is really unique, which is why I picked it up. Neon red? A vibrant pink-red? This Audacious lipstick is rich in pigment and glides effortlessly when applying. It does transfer, and if you're not too careful, it gets on your teeth -- after all it's not an all-day liquid lipstick. If you enjoy retro-chic and luxe products, I highly recommend.

Okay so after reading tons of reviews on this concealer i still did not run out and buy it, i put it off for soo long until one random day i happened to have the right amount of money, i was in the right store and i was in the right mood, i thought what the heck YOLO so i bought the darn concealer. To all the people who are like me you read the reviews but dont take the plunge right away, GO AND BUY THIS CONCEALER RIGHT NOW!!! Previously i have used mac pro longwear if you think that concealer was too drying and cakey , nars concealer will save you. This concealer is amazinggg, it covers my dark circles really well so amazing coverage but not too heavy and its soo creamy and blends like a dreamm. It is the first concealer to not look cakey in my pores it goes on really smooth , doesnt crease at all and it doesnt leave my t zone oily whatsoever but is still hydrating enough to not make it dry and cakey looking it is perfect! It makes your skin look so smooth and flawless so like i said please buy this concealer if you have been searching for a good concealer for a long time and you have textured skin like mine and also dry and oily skin at the same time, i feel like this nars concealer is the hg for troublesome and hard to please skin its beautiful, i promise !

First of all, each one of these are truly UNIQUE and COMPLEX colours such that they are not dupable. When they say it's pigmented, they really mean it. Packaging feels very luxurious and sleek. It doesn't just have the click sound that luxurious lipsticks have, but also has a magnetic type closure. I have three colours - anita, anna and apoline. All three are absolutely gorgeous, statement making and wearable to school, office and parties.
