Lovin' me some NARS right now

I'm embroiled in a raging love affair with NARS cosmetics at the moment. I've found myself reaching for their blushers so much more lately. The quality is amazing, they're extremely pigmented, do not streak and are incredibly easy to blend. I have a few of the blushes and thought I'd share some swatches with you.

(L-R) Lovejoy, Ninotchka, Albatross, Luster, Taj Mahal, Crazed, Sin

I've just won my first NARS e/s duo for a bargainous £10.51 instead of £23 off Ebay. Scorching Sun which is part of the current Summer collection will be winging it's way to me shortly. Yeaaaaaaaaaah! I fell in love with it when the MUA swatched it for me showing how intense it is. It really is a gorgeous orange/gold combo.

I'd like a few more e/s duos now. Which ones do you own and which would you rec I take a look at?

14 beauty lovers have sumthin to say:

Love love love NARs! As for eyeshadow duos, there are so many. Some suggestions:
Cordura (beatiful browns); Alhambra (perfect highlighters); kalahari (cocoa, gold)and Paris (smokey eyes).

Patience said...

Erm where is Mounia!? Why haven't you got Mounia!? Must I have to tell you again, you MUST get Mounia! LOL

Nah but seriously, buy Mounia! *sigh* It's like heaven it's that goregous!

There's a reason why i haven't bought Mounia yet. I think cos I have a MAC dupe for it. I'll have to check it out again.

Albatross is more a highlighter, isn't it? I'm eyeing Sin for myself, but maybe I should be bolder.

Make sure you go over the eBay purchase with an eagle eye. There are a lot of fakes about, even Nars ones.

Hope your sore throat improves soon. I've just come down with one this morning - must be the change in weather I guess.

@ Sarah - Yeah Albatross is a highlighter. It's a soft pearly/light gold sheen but my crap pic doesn't show that.

I bombarded the seller with 101 questions before bidding so am confident it's the real deal.

Thank you, I've caught this off a friend. That'll teach me to share drinking glasses! I knew they were ill aswell and I still 'went there' *rolls eyes* Hope you feel better soon too x

Yinka (VexInThecity) said...

@ Celly - *gasps* I demand you treat yourself to some NARS immediately!

@ Em - I hope so it looks nice! I loved the swatches I did at the counter.

Dude ur nars blush collection is insane! I too find myself reaching for the Nars blushes, although the taj mahal brown girl fave isnt one I reach foe the most :S. Ive got the albatross torrid blush highlight duo which is great for summer as it gives me a dewey glowing complexion which I love...I also really like crazed.

In terms of e/s duos I like Paris..its a dark grey and a bluey grey pearlescent shade..loverly xxx
