Before Christmas I had a little spree in Space NK where I headed straight to the NARS counter and ended up getting a few things ticked off the wish list. Last week I found myself standing in front of the all the pretty NARS make up once again wanting to make the wish list a little bit smaller.

Douceur is a blush in the past I would have completely overlooked. It may not look all that interesting in the pan but once on the cheeks it translate to a subtle contour that works perfectly for minimal make up days and for when you're rocking a red lip. I was going to buy Cyprus as a dupe for Burberry's Pale Barley but by some miracle it came back in stock making getting it a little pointless. After not being able to get it out of my head I took PB with me to do some side by side swatching and I decided they were different enough for me to own both. After I felt like Too Faced's Shadow Insurance wasn't up to the job any more and feeing a bit 'meh' with Urban Decay's Primer Potion I was on the lookout for something new and NARS Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base seemed like the next choice. I've only used this a handful of times but so far I'm impressed.

Since the Satin Lip Pencils were released I've been keen to pick up a few shades but I was never sure which ones to go for. While their limited edition shades were tempting I settled on two of their permanent shades, an all year round bright Luxembourg and a classic peachy nude Biscayne Park.
The Velvet Matte Lip Pencils really caught my eye last year after they received a lot of love online and when the positive reviews started pouring in I couldn't help but pick up a couple of shades. Cruella (dark red) and Red Square (orange red) were picked up first with Dragon Girl (blue red) being the most recent and impulsive of buys.

Are you lusting after any NARS products?


  1. I've been using the Nars primer for a year and I haven't looked back, it's amazing! My eyeshadow even stayed on after 24 hours of traveling, It definitely can't be beat :)
