NARS Goodies

.

I received a few goodies from NARS' upcoming collection before I left for Christmas vacation and haven't had time to post em up 'till today. Of course I will try and get some FOTD's going with some of these, but so far I have used the Blush and Bronzing Duo in "Torrid" blush in my last FOTD (their "Albatross" makes an awesome highlighter!). It's a gorgeous pinkish coral shade, reminds me of Milani's "Luminous" blush which is a great dupe for NARS "Orgasm" blush. They also have a multiple bronzer in "Malaysia" to add warmth to the face and can also contour any part of the face such as the eyes, cheeks, or even the body. The "Jungle Red" shade comes in a set ($55, www.narscosmetics.com) which features the lipliner, nailpolish, and lipstick. (It's gorgeous! Reminds me of MAC Red lipstick and MAC Russian Red)

NARS may be a bit expensive for some, but OMG their products are amazingly pigmented and rich! And they have a wide selection of colors and cosmetics.

BTW, many of you couldn't find the clear drawers from my previous post on the Container Store website and it seems they may have sold out or it's currently out of stock, so I found something similar on www.organizeit.com and on Amazon.com. Hope that helps!

I think you meant to say that Torid is the corally-pink shade. Albatross is the highlighter (and I love this shade, BTW. I just bought a full pan of it ^_^).

That red looks great on you. Too bad I have too many reds to go through, or I would be looking at that shade.

Hi Kaoru! HAHA thanks for the correction! That's what I meant, LOL. For some reason I kept thinking Albatross SOUNDS better haha. Yeah it's a nice color!

I just got Albatross as part of a duo (Lovejoy/Albatross) last week in a swap, and I think it's my HG highlighter. I don't like visible shimmer/glitter on my face, and even though I can see some in the pan, I put it on my face and it just looks perfect and glowy and beautiful. AND, it doesn't seem to be breaking me out! I hope you love it as much as I do : )

KristaCherie said...

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE NARS!!! BTW, love your blog ;)

Hi Vanessa, very nice blog . Love reading all of your reviews, they are extremely helpful. Just had a quick question have you ever tried the NARS primer with SPF 25? or is it 20?(one or the other :-))
I don't know if you did a review and maybe i did not see it?
Anyway my name is Gisselle and my email is gigii35@gmail.com
Thanks for you time appreciate it. :-)
