Recent NARS Purchases

Wednesday, December 2, 2015

NARS Cosmetics has been one of my favourite brands for a long, long time. I love their sleek and chic black packaging, the fact that they are cruelty free, and of course the incredible quality of their products. My NARS collection certainly grew quite a bit post Sephora VIB sale - if you haven't seen my entire haul from the sale I will link in HERE. Everything I purchased is cruelty free and there is a lot of skincare & NARS featured in this haul!  Anyway... on to this post!

I am so impressed with all three items photographed above that I don't even know where to begin! Can you tell it has been a hot minute since I last posted a blog post? ;)

I will start with the Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer. You will see it in action in this video where I did a complete start to finish makeup look using only NARS products (with the exception of primer, powder and mascara). It is not for those who like full coverage, yet it is perfect for those who like a sheer-light base with a beautiful youthful glow. You will see in my makeup tutorial how I do one light layer and then use concealer on the areas that I need a little added coverage (aka any blemishes and redness!). It lasts about 6 hours on my combination skin before I need to blot and reapply a mattifying powder to my forehead. It doesn't completely wear off under my glasses nose pieces, and if you are a glasses wearer as well you will appreciate that more then you thought you would! Although I do get oily on my forehead I find I just look more radiant and glowy then I do actually glowy. A really great tinted moisturizer and I know I will be reaching for it non-stop this cold and frigid Canadian winter!

The Hot Sand liquid illuminator is a product I didn't think I would love as much as I do! It is a beautiful peachy shade that looks almost undetectable on your skin yet leaves the perfect amount of a natural glow. The tinted moisturizer and highlight combo gives the *perfect* no makeup-makeup look! You need the smallest amount and I dab it between my two ring fingers and then tap tap tap on my cheek bones and brow bone and you're done! This is a huge bottle and it will last you ages! If you have dry skin and are looking for even more of a glow, adding this into your foundation/TM will give you the most beautiful yet natural looking glow. I can't get enough of this product! I believe it is an online only item on or you can get it in a NARS store if you are lucky enough to have one near you! (I'm very jealous if you do...)

Last but certainly not least - Chelsea Girls Lip Gloss. My goodness! I know this product was getting a ton of attention right now and I am definitely not a lip gloss type of girl....but I am OBSESSED with this gloss! First of all the formula is absolutely perfect as it is so smooth and buttery on your lips and isn't sticky in the SLIGHTEST bit. I also own their gloss in the shade Orgasm but I wanted on that was less shimmery and this colour is perfect for my lips! It is a beautiful pinky beige colour that provides a lot of shine on your lips. I really can't say enough good things about it! I don't usually carry lip glosses around town with me but whenever I am out I crave this gloss so much that it now goes everywhere with me!
