A VERY NAUGHTY NARS HAUL8:00 AM
After a fruitless Christmas shopping expedition, I decided to pop to the Space NK in Canary Wharf ‘just for a look’, and ended up spending a whole lotta dolla on some very unnecessary bits for myself. I’m like a NARS magpie; I’m never not lusting over something by them and I genuinely think they’re one of the best high-end brands out there. My NARS collection is growing steadily, mostly thanks to my generous mummy when it’s my birthday and Christmas. The Sheer Glow foundation has been my ultimate favourite foundation since I first tried it waaay back in 2013, and I never thought anything could match it until I got home with my bag of swag and tried out my new goodies.
I picked up the NARS Pore Refining Primer first of all, which was £26 and looks really really good. I don’t own that many primers, and I usually forget to even put any on when I start doing my makeup, so I reckoned this one might remind me to do it. I’m hoping it’ll help control shine and stop my makeup from sliding around my face after a few hours, especially around my nose!
Then I got colour matched for the NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation (and it turns out I had the wrong Sheer Glow shade, oops), and I couldn’t believe how light it felt on just the one side of my face. At £32, it’s not exactly cheap and cheerful, but I fell in love immediately. I can really see what all the hype’s been about among bloggers over it, and I’m sort of kicking myself that I didn’t run screaming, hurling my money around, to a store to buy it when it was first released.
As always with NARS’s products, I’ve got very high hopes for these couple of newbies. The price tag is always off-putting at first, but there’s still never been a NARS product that I’ve bought and haven’t liked. I’ll do full reviews on each of these products after I’ve had a good go with them, so look out for those! As for now, I’m going to try to work out how I’m going to buy my family and Christmas presents with a bank balance of £6.84…
Lots of love,
