J'adore NARS

Saturday, November 21, 2009

Despite waking up early (well 10am) full of good intentions, I've completed none of the tasks I had planned for today. My productivity was further stunted when the postman arrived with the NARS goodies that I managed to bag from GossMakeupArtist's blog sale.

My NARS blush collection is now complete with the following additions:


I also picked up a few e/s. I actually wanted Night Fever & Night Porter which are from NARS Nightlife collection but as Goss was selling the eyeshadows as pairs, the other two were given a home aswell. Shade descriptions are as follows:

Night Porter - Black with green pearls

Night Fever - Black with red pearls (similar to MAC Beauty Marked but with more pigment)

Night Star - Sheer peach with gold pearls (Surprisingly flattering, I'm wearing it now)

LuLu - Bright eggplant

My pictures don't do Night Fever & Night Porter justice! Swatch them at a NARS counter and you'll see how pretty they are.

Altogether, the combined RRP of this little lot is £134. I paid just £49 inc postage. Goss mistakenly undercharged me, and wouldn't invoice me again after I'd pointed it out, which was very cool of him.

I saved myself an insane £85! Happy much?!

Bargains! How lovely of him not to charge you the rest too, he is such a star! I got some grease paint sticks from him and they are in fab condition :)

WinterBlossom said...

Wow mega bargin! Love all of it. I've always wondered about getting orgasm but I love to try a blush on me first and the NARS counter near me shut down :( mega sad so I guess I won't be getting it anytime soon. I've seen swatches of Night porter before and never been that impressed but it looks gorgeous in your pics! :) xxx

Taos and Torrid are very tempting. Night Fever has quickly become a favorite for me. Very nice haul.

Miss Rubber Ducky said...

Love love the look of the Torrid blush and the green of Night Porter e/s - reminds me of the shades you'd get from a peacock's feather!

Small Town Gal said...

Torrid does look great. I wanted Night Porter and Night Fever LOL, but I am still pleased with what I did get from the blog sale, Charade and Brazil duos - I was expecting to love Charade the most but when I swatched Brazil I couldn't stop staring at it!

VexInTheCity said...

@ Sophie - I know, considering how cheap everything was to begin with. Glad you like your greasesticks x

@ WinterBlossom - Aww that sucks. Google swatches, I'm sure you'll come across pics of people with similar skintone to yours wearing what you're after in a FOTD

@ Vixxan - Every WOC should have those blushes. They're lovely. I'm looking fwd to trying out Night Fever :-)

@ Miss Rubberducky - Yeah that's exactly what Night Porter looks like.

@ Small Town Girl - Sorry! I was on the ball that day LOL Glad you're liking your duos though x

Lisa said...

Wow great buys! Love the look of Torrid and Desire. I have Lulu, I'm wearing it today actually :) Night Fever was one I swatched at the counter and was very tempted by I think as it looked like Beautymarked but better. I couldn't remember the name of it though so I'm glad you posted this. It's on my list of things to get xx

Sooo jealous that you beat me to the Nars blushes ;-) Nars is one of the brands that we can't buy here in Sweden, so it's either mail order or the rare visit to say London or Paris...

The Shabby and The Chic said...

Ooh the Taos blush looks divine but the Desire scare me a tad!

SoFrolushes said...

I have been reading about the wonders of nars orgasm for ages. no idea why I dont just go get some. it looks perfect for me.

Jamilla Camel said...

ALL of those shades look amazing against your complexion!! Great haul!
