20 YEARS OF NARS



NARS new products

Getting my makeup done by NARS makeup artistNARS by Philip Lim 3.1 Nail polishes

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! 


NARS Blush in Unlawful

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

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.


NARS Larger than Life Eyeliner Swatch

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.

413 BLKR , BACK ROOM , SHAMELESS RED , L'AVVENTURA
Oh my goodness. These nail polishes. 
I am in love with 413 BLKR. It looks pretty damn dark in the bottle but when you apply it glides on as a chrome-like blue. The formula and finish is just right, and under light there is a slight change of color. There are no words to describe it, you'll just have to go see for yourself.
Back Room is a plain glossy black color, which is not something I would normally wear, but good to have (you never know, right?)
Shameless Red is something I would always wear. A youthful coral color which is great for all seasons.
Last but not least L'Avventura is a color that you probably see everywhere. This does not really catch my attention but I do have to say, these nail polishes can last 3 weeks chip-free. I've seen it happen myself!

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. 

Hope you guys enjoyed this blog post, especially for all of you NARS fans out there.
Happy 20th Birthday, NARS!
