Before I went away a few weeks ago, I paid a visit to the Nars counter. The second I saw their new trio (Limited Edition) Arabian Nights my heart went BOOM CHICKA BOOM BOOM. Because it had a few elements I really love when it comes to make up. Black – Check. Glitters – Check. Soft Textures – Check. Only when I got home did I think, huh – how do I use this wildly […]
I totally resisted the Nars Multiple Tints because when I originally swatched them I thought they looked a bit glossy. However I was hearing so many good things about them (especially Turks & Caicos, the bold orange) that I went back for another look (that, and the fact that I collect Nars!). These Multiple Tints are Limited Edition and there are (were) three shades; Turks & Caicos – Bright Orange Beverly Hills – Bright Red […]
I think it’s been too long since I’ve featured Nars, so here it is – the new Nars Pure Matte Lipsticks. There are 6 colours in the range, each lipstick containing mango butter, vitamin e and acai oil to provide hydration and a highly pigment finish. So let’s take a look… Vesuvio (sounds like a car): A full bodied red Every lipstick collection needs a decent red and Vesuvio is it. Neither too pink or […]
It’s a good job I don’t treat my make up like I treat my men, otherwise the current Mr Candy would’ve been replaced 10 times over by now. Go and grab some Pj’s and ice cream, cos I want to talk brand crushes with you (again)… As long as I’ve liked make up I’ve had brand crushes. On one hand I probably have something from most brands you can name, but I also go through […]
I have always loved Nars, so I just had to show you the Fall/Autumn collection for 2010. The collection is a collaboration between Nars & Daphne Guinness, launched on August 1st. To create this look: A coat of Smudge-Proof Eyeshadow Base, followed by a wash of Daphne Single Eyeshadow. Using the Wide Contour Brush, build color and intensity along the outer eye. For brightness in the inner eye, apply Mangrove Single Eyeshadow and lightly lined […]
I’ve swatched Bloodwork by Nars a few times because its so unique. Its a shiny, almost vinyl finish deep red: My my my, you do have to be careful with this one because its so pigmented, so glossy and so red. But its unique and will give you such an amazing hot red lip! What do you think of bloodwork?
I bought Moon Fleet from Nars at Christmas – because could there be a more Christmassy shade? I think not! This is a clear to slightly yellow toned gloss with gold glitter: Its super glittery and works well on lots of other base colours. I like! What do you think of Moon Fleet?
This lip gloss is Boogie Nights from Nars. Its a shimmer deep purple that looks quite dark in the tube: Actually, I’ve fallen in love with it all over again. It looks rather flattering on my lips: Remember Boogie Nights the film?
The Orgasm collection from Nars now includes a highlighter creme, a blusher, another blusher, a nail polish and so on. Some people say its overrated. I personally like it a lot – I do think its a beautiful mix of peach, pink infused with gold. This is the lip gloss: On the lips – its sheer but rather pretty: Like this gloss? Or do you think its dull?
I found this Nars Lip Stain Gloss is still on sale but I found this pretty one in my collection the other day. This Lip Stain is called Rage. It looks rather scary in the tube but its the least scary shade in the collection: Nars Says about the product: Longwearing matte lip color in a revolutionary non-drying formula. The silicone-based, non-transfer formula glides on smoothly to achieve perfect looking lips for hours. Enriched with […]
Barbarella, a great name for a lipstick, is Nars’ Perfect Peach in the Sheer Formula. For this reason, I can wear this colour quite comfortably, more so that the Semi-Matte range or the Matte, which is significantly more drying. I forget how sheer this actually is, because I’m so used to Nars being madly pigmented. Two light coats on the lips equals: Not as unique as in the tube but nevertheless a pretty wearable colour. […]
Lips for today is this golden bronze lipstick, called Hot Voodoo: I bought this cos it looked so gorgeous on the SA who was wearing it. I have to say its a bit full on for me day to day but its very unusual, bronzy-goddessy: I’ve always had a problem with the texture of Nars Lipsticks – they are a tad dry on me. Nevertheless, some of their shades are real knockouts. What do you […]
Doing a few Nars Lipstick Swatches for the next couple of days! Today is probably my favourite Nars Lipsticik – Schiap. There is no better blue based hot pink in the world: Although…Nars lipsticks dry my lips somewhat. I hope they reformulate the older lipsticks at some point so they are more hydrating. What do you think?
I picked up this haul agesss ago but didn’t get a chance to report until now! I bought the Nars Soft Touch Shadow Pencil in Aigle Noir, The Multiple in Luxor and the anniversary eyeshadow palette called Day & Night. The anniversary palettes come in a red box: And special red lettering! Inside, there’s a nice mix of colours to take you from – you guessed it – Day to Night! I have most of […]

Take something quite dark, quite vampy and add a coat of a light sheer (and a tiny bit bland) pink, and what do you get? Perhaps the most perfect blue-mauve, ever! See the swatch….
Pay day usually means a few treats that have been on my mind for a while, and where better to spend than on the Nars counter! I pretty much nearly everything from Nars, but decided to buy three bits: I have always wanted the PERFECT nude mauve lips – I got the Velvet Matte Pencil in Sex Machine, Lip Gloss in Belize and Multiple in Tuomota, which is a bronzer matte orange-less brown that is […]
