Nars Cream Eyeshadow in Ponderosa Swatches and Review


Despite being a big fan of cream eyeshadows, I never truly invested in Nars ones because they always creased. They were brilliant as bases though, as they are quite thick and sticky in comparison to other formulas but worn on their own; they didn’t quite do it for me. I spotted one of their newest cream eyeshadow colours, Ponderosa on ASOS at a discounted price: If you keep an eye on ASOS you will find […]

Hmm not sure: Nars Danmari All About Cheeks Blusher Palette Review and Swatches


One of my birthday presents from Mr C was Nars’ limited edition blush palette, named Danmari.  I used to collect Nars make up, these days less so but as soon as I saw this palette I knew I had to have it. It comes in a lovely gift box (as a side note the Nars website sends products extremely well packaged, in cardboard boxes that have foam stuck to them on the inside).   The […]

Nars The Multiple in G-Spot and The Multiple Laguna Swatches and Review


Did I ever tell you I collect Nars Multiples?  Check out the tags to see my other swatches!  And here is my home made Nars Multiple palette! Nars multiples are not without problems; they can be a bit oily, they used to give me spots, and they are pretty expensive at £29 each. I recently hauled G-Spot (that name!) from the counter, purely because it felt like a while since Nars released a decent multiple […]

Nars Trio Eyeshadow in Arabian Nights (Purple Black Sparkles!) Swatches, Review


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 […]

Hauled it! Nars The Multiple Tint in Turks & Caicos, Cadaques


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’ve got a crush on you: Who is your current Brand Crush?


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 […]
