I posted a picture of my recent mini NARS haul on Instagram last week and after having a little play about with all the products I have to say, I am loving each & every one....
Here's what I picked up:
ITA Brush - After months and months of waiting I finally managed to order this brush. NARS actually had the old design discountinued and they have just brought this version out recently. Its part of their newly designed brush collection. I love the effect I get from this brush; It's just perfect for achieving contour so easily on all types of faces including mine as I have no defined cheekbones or hollows to make contouring easier. It also makes contouring the nose much faster too, the shape of the brush means you literally just need to swipe once down each side of the nose, without worrying if you're going straight. Super eaay to use and such a cool brush to have in your collection whether you're a makeup artist or just a makeup fanatic. Although it is pricey, I love the quality of NARS brushes and their products in general to be honest.
Lip Gloss in 'Turkish Delight' - Even though I adore the colour of this gloss, I feel it is overated. It is the perfect pale pinky nude that has a touch of colour to the skin without washing the lips out but unfortunately it is quite sheer. I definitely had to pop a lipstick on underneath but it really gave a beautiful effect overall. The best thing about this gloss... the formula really is non-sticky.
Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in 'Sex Machine'- This pencil is the perfect dupe for MAC's Girl About Town Lipstick. I actually used this pencil over that lipstick on a bride 2 days ago to give it some more movement and dimension and it just blended in so beautifully.
Eye Paint in 'Baalbek' - By far my favourite product! Why, you ask? Well becaue it's just so unique and gorgeous! It's a lovely multi - dimensional colour, although decribed as a 'Bronze' it's more of a Olive Green/ Brown with flecks of Gold. It is immensely pigmented and it's lasting power is absolutely amazing. NARS eye paints can be used for both cream eyeshadow or as a gel liner, and I can tell you that it does both jobs wonderfully without fading or creasing for atleast 10 hours before showing wear. I'll definitely be buying more shades very soon. This was relased as part of the summer swim collection but is part of the permanent line (YAY!) - I highly recommend it!
I hope you guys enjoyed this haul & review! Let me know what you think...
P.S. Here's an eye look created with the Baalbek Eye paint.
