A week ago I was invited by NARS to check out their Fall Collection in celebration of their 20th Anniversary. Although I own a couple of NARS products, I don't tend to particularly get sucked in by their products as much. It could be their packaging, it could be the fact that I just own way too much makeup for my own good. But now, I am officially converted.
Eyeshadow Duo: Dolomites (Limited Edition)
The first thing I walked away with, was this gorgeous eyeshadow duo called 'Dolomites'. It was also the eyeshadow shade they used on me at the event, which left me with a lovely soft, smokey eye. I loved it so much I almost purchased it on the spot. It comes with two soft shimmery colors, a dusty pink and a warm brown. If you like eyeshadows of these tones, you best run to your NARS store as these are Limited Edition!
Apparently, this is 'the new Orgasm' - Unlawful. It is so pretty I can't even begin to explain how much I love it on me. It has a soft peachy glittery finish thus lighting up the entire face and creates innocent flushed cheeks. Love.
NARSissist All Eyes On You Eyeshadow Set £35.00
[ Get it here ]
I've always wanted to get my hands on the NARSissist palettes but they are forever sold out. This time I managed to get my hands on this trio Smokey Eye set. It comes with a beautiful sand color that can probably be used as a powder (depending on your skin tone); a matte taupe color that can also be used as brow powder and last but not least, a shimmery midnight black which in my opinion, is just the most beautiful black eyeshadow I have seen in my entire life. This gets a big thumbs up from me.
Also in the set, you get a Larger Than Life Eyeshadow Pencil in Via Veneto which in my opinion, is not the best eyeliner, but it comes in a mini size, plus a blending eyeshadow brush which again, makes this set perfect for travellers.
I've never really used glittery or shimmery eye pencils. In fact, I only just tend to use black or champagne depending on its purpose. But I have now changed my mind about sticking to black, and will attempt to use these gorgeous Night Series eyeliners on various occasions.
Night Bird (above) is a mysterious shimmery navy blue which I think gives off kind of a sexy vibe and Night Clubbing (below) is just a very classic-with-a-twist shimmery black. I love how they aren't too shimmery but they have just a slight hint of that chromey finish to distinguish themselves from plain, black eyeliners.
I hardly wear red lips nowadays because I simply can't be bothered to use lip pencils and lip brushes, yet this lip pencil makes a red lip look so effortless all in a few swipes.
All you have to do is fill in your lips as normal. I love how this texture isn't too thick and drying, and leaves a slightly glossy finish to my lips.
