If I had to choose my favourite makeup brand I would probably have to pick Nars. I have collected a variety of products from their range and I am still yet to be disappointed. From their base products to eyes to cheeks to lips, they have something for everything and the continue to create great quality products. Whilst their price tag is in the higher end spectrum, everything I’ve tried has justified the price with the quality excelling each time. Having tried many of their products, I thought it was about time I did a little rundown on some of my favourites!
Whilst I have only got two base products from Nars, both are must-have, holy-grail quality products. I have spoke about them countless times before on the blog but it is time to mention them again, sorry! The first being their cult foundation Sheer Glow. This is without a doubt the best foundation I’ve ever tried, it provides great long lasting coverage whilst also looking flawless on the skin with a gorgeous satin finish. Check my full review here. The next is the dreamy Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer which is the perfect match alongside the Sheer Glow foundation. This concealer is thick and creamy offering incredible coverage yet is still comfortable on the skin and long-lasting. Review here.
As well as base products, Nars also have a collection of great face products from bronzers, blushes and highlighters. Starting with bronzer which happens to be one of my first ever Nars products, the favourite Nars Laguna bronzer. As you can see I have hit pan on this which pretty much lead to me being scared to use it again, anyone else? Nevertheless, this is a great all round bronzer, it isn’t too dark or orange-y at all on my pale skin. (Major throwback review here) Another product to try from Nars is there fab blush range. I have two shades, the cult Orgasm and Dolce Vita both with a great soft texture and pigmented colour. Basically every gal needs a Nars blush in their life! Lastly in their face range is their Illuminator in the shade Copacabana. This is a gorgeous pearl-y champagne liquid highlighter. Coming in a 30ml tube, it is one that will be in my collection for a long time!
To try next: Nars Sin Blush.
Nars’ eye makeup range is one I have explored a lot more recently. From the range I have only tried from their eyeshadow selection but nevertheless I have found some goodies worth checking out. I have a couple of their singles eyeshadows, one from the Night Series range and the other from the Holiday Steven Klein collection which is one of my favourite single eyeshadows, super buttery with a gorgeous shimmery finish to the lids. Review of that here. As well as their cream eyeshadows and eyeshadow sticks, they also have their Dual-Intensity range which is worth a look. I have the palette which offers a range of gorgeous wearable shades that can be worn dry or with a damp brush. Review here.
Lastly, their lip range is seriously worth the pennies! Their Satin/Velvet Matte lip pencils are some of the best lip formulas I’ve ever tried. The satin formula is creamy yet incredibly long-wearing whilst the matte offers much the same with yet a comfortable formula. From the matte range, I love Cruella, my perfect red, and from the satin range I love Yu, a gorgeous bold fuchsia shade (review here). I also have a lot of love for the satin pencil in Mandore (sadly LE) which is a pretty berry red shade (review here). Aside from the lip pencils, I also have one of their lipsticks (sadly again a LE one) which I haven’t really had a lot of wear out of but nevertheless it has a super creamy formula.
