3 Favourites from Nars..

Does anyone else get stuck in a rut with their makeup and suddenly you feel as though you’ve been using the same products forever? I’ve felt like this lately, my tinted moisturiser hasn’t been lasting quite as long as usual on my face (I’m blaming the weather) so I’ve gone back to using something a little bit heavier with more coverage. 

I’ve used Nars Sheer Glow before and I forgot how much I loved it until I repurchased recently. It’s a medium to full coverage but you can built it up to be completely airbrushed if you feel necessary. I try not to use too much, but I’ve started using a little more on my cheeks because that seems to be where it starts to separate first. The formula itself is quite light compared to some full coverage foundations, but still leaves you with a lovely glowy finish. It’s my new fave but I’m really trying not to use it on days when I’m not doing much because it’s not the cheapest of foundations on the market. 

I feel like we really need to discuss this concealer. I’ve been using my Mac Prep n Prime highlight under my eyes for years now. But it runs out so quickly I can never justify continuously repurchasing, so I decided to try something different. This Soft Matte Concealer from Nars is literally a fake eight hours sleep. If you suffer from dark, purpley coloured circles like me then you’ll really appreciate this product. It’s creamy and thick, but really blendable. I never really got on with the Nars Creamy concealer but this one I absolutely love. I usually use my finger and pat it under my eyes but with acrylic nails this can get a little tricky so I’m on the lookout for a good brush to use with it. 

My final little product from Nars is this gorgeous eyeshadow duo in the shade Kuala Lumpa. Now being the bad blogger that I am, I used this to death before actually photographing it. But surely that tells you I just couldn’t wait?! The pink shade in this is just absolutely perfect for me, I’ve been using nothing else for the past two weeks. It’s a really subtle pink with tiny gold speckles in it. No photo would do it justice so please go to a Nars counter and swatch it for yourself because it’s bloody gorgeous. The purple shade is also to die for, especially in the colder months I always like to add a little bit of a darker eye here and there, and it goes gorgeous with lipsticks like Mac Rebel or Charlotte Tilbury Bitch Perfect. The consistency of the actual eyeshadow itself is beautiful, there’s no fall out when applying, and they blend so easily. Everything you want in an eyeshadow! The duo cost £26 so it isn’t cheap, but the way I justify it is I would spend £40 on a palette that I’d maybe use every so often, but this duo I’ve used everyday since I got it. So surely it’s worth the money? If Connor reads this post he’s gonna say that’s not really a significant justification but hey what does he know. 

That’s everything from my little Nars haul, let me know if you’ve tried any products from Nars and if so what’s your favourite?
