NEW TO MY WARDROBE

Most Loved: From Nars

New year, new series. After two years of hating the words "top five", we're going for something a little different over here. Say hello to "most loved", where I compile my most loved products from various brands and stores that I'm obsessed with. Today I thought I'd kick it off with a few of my favourites from a brand that I've been in love with since this little space first coughed up it's first post (if you could even call it that...).

Nars Pure Radient Tinted Moisturiser:
I can't count the amount of times I've mentioned the Nars tinted moisturiser since I first got my hands on it. Sheer, but still has just enough coverage to dull scarring and imperfections, decent lasting power (well for a TM anyway), a more satin, radiant finish than the dewy/shiny finish that comes with most and a really good colour range. I can't stand it when I'm the palest shade in a range (Bourjois - I'm looking at you). If I had to throw out every other Nars product, I think this would stand a good chance of being the keeper.

Nars Radient Creamy Concealer (Custard):
Good coverage? Check. Brightening but without the shimmer? Check. Blend-able? Check. Like the Collection lasting perfection concealer but without the cakey finish? Check. This is my go to on those "boy do I look rough" days as I can use it to quickly and effectively cover both dark circles and spots/redness. I'd recommend using a good eye cream otherwise things can look a little heavy, but unless you have seriously dry eyes *points at self*, you'll be fine.

Nars Loose Light Reflecting Powder
We all know how I feel about powders. There are very few that I get along with, but this is one of the few in my makeup mountain that I actually feel make my makeup look better rather than worse. It's a light reflecting setting powder, but with zero shimmer, matting the skin whilst still leaving a luminous look. I love. Only thing I don't love is that it's loose and makes a mess in my bedroom. Oops.

Blushes - Gina and Deep Throat
I always fear for what my analytics might show when I post a Nars blush name on the blog. That aside they're my favourite blushes - I used to stop by Space NK after a bad day at work and pick myself up one. Consequently I've owned a fair few over the years. However the "bad day" habit had to stop and so did my growing collection - a few have been handed out to friends so now only a handful remain. Gina and DT are my favourites of the bunch that are left. DT is saved more for girly makeup days with it's light pink sheen and subtle shimmer, it's so pretty and a good one to start of with if you're new to the world of Nars blushes. Gina is a peachy/orange with a more matte finish, one of my go-to's on days where I'm just not sure what to put on my cheeks.

Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencils
The lip pencil collection is growing - another Nars habit that needs to stop. Cruella and Red Square are my favourites, although I am currently on the hunt for something a little more on the pink side (watch this space). Long lasting with a velvet/matte finish and incredible colours - there was no way these weren't going to be mentioned. Another contender in the "if I had to give up all my Nars products" scenario.

  2. I've just bought the tinted moisturiser & Gina blush. Love them both (wearing them now!) Only didn't get the concealer because my shade was out of stock. I can see me developing a blush habit!

  3. Nars is fast becoming my favourite make up brand, I don't think I could live without Sheer Glow or Deep Throat blush. I'm yet to try any of their lip pencils but I've heard so much about them I'm going to have to pick one up soon!

  7. I'm barely getting into NARS but it's quickly becoming my go-to brand for everyday makeup. I must try the crystal setting powder.

  8. I really really want to try the tinted moisturiser! I've been on the search for one for a while and this sounds perfect! Love this little feature! http://amelissab.blogspot.co.uk/ Amy, X

  9. I need some NARS in my life I feel so deprived not living near a counter, and I'm too nervous to colour match myself online especially with the prices! Perhaps the lip products may be worth a try, they do the powder in pressed by the way although I personally find loose powders look more natural less cakey x

  10. Definitely going to picking up a blusher on my next trip to Brighton.. My first SpaceNK trip was rushed so I left empty handed! I might give some more of these products a bit of a whizz too!
    Thanks for sharing! :)

  11. I can't believe I have yet to try a NARS product; shame on me! If I gotta pick one out of your list I'm most eager to try I have to say it's the tinted moisturizer.

  13. I have never tried any Nars products, but you have given me a great list to try. The top of my list is the Nars Lip Pencil, it reminds me of the Rimmel Colour Rush balms.

  17. I love the Creamy Concealer SO much, I just wish it wasn't so pricey. Desperate to try the Velvet Matte Lip Pencils too, Red Square is the perfect shade! x

  19. I really like NARS; I love their blush and their bronzer. I really want to try their Tinted Moisturizer and their concealer. I got a sample of the tinted moisturizer, and I wasn't that impressed (probably because my skin is horrible at the moment and the color was a bad match). xo

  21. This post is just enabling me to buy even more NARs haha. I just got my first velvet matte pencil last weekend! I got a lighter shade and I can't wait to venture into some of the darker ones like cruella and dragon girl. I'm also hoping to get the concealer before my prom this year as I want a higher coverage one with good lasting power. Thanks for the roundup of these products!

  22. The NARS Torrid blush (which I stole/borrowed from my mom everyday while on holiday until she finally just gave it to me) is a huge favorite of mine. I've also been eyeing one of their multiples and the infamous laguna bronzer for ages.

  23. If you like Nars velvet matte lip pencil then a good pink undertoned red is Dragon Girl!!!!!!

  24. I need the Nars Creamy Concealer!

  26. NARS eyeshadows are amazing! They also came out with a huge palette full of some permanent shades. Might be worth looking at if you don't own many previously. xoxo

  27. You're such a NARS enabler! I religiously used the NARS Funny Face lipstick until my nail glue exploded over it and glued the lid shut. It was a devastating day. I can't recommend their lipsticks enough, it's the perfect finish: semi matte and super long lasting (I ate a sunday roast once wearing it and the colour didn't budge). If they weren't so expensive I'd say they overtake my love of MAC lipsticks. Maybe you can check out their lipstick range for something more pink toned?

    ReplyDelete
  49. I have all these products (albeit in different colours), and I couldn't agree more! The finishing powder will definitely be on my 'repurchase' list when I eventually finish it, and I've had so many compliments about the lip pencils. Nars is easily one of my favourite brands out there!

  53. So far I've only purchased one product from Nars - of course it was the Orgasm blush! I really love it so I can see my collection growing significantly larger in the not-so-distant future haha (:

  54. Ah that photo makes me happy, I love NARS. I'm desperate to try that tinted moisturiser it sounds right up my street. I've heard rumours that there is a new orange coloured lip pencil coming out for spring, I can't wait! Have you tried Doucer, that's definitely one of my favourites from the NARS blushes. I'm really enjoying your blog and YouTube at the moment, thank you!!

  61. Love this post and LOVE Nars. New follower!
    I have, except for the tinted moisturiser, and love all of the above products. My other fave has definitely got to be the Laguna bronzer which I've been wearing religiously for years. Aaah. I've got the Cruella lippy as well and adore it. Get so many compliments when I wear it :) Such an expensive obsession though haha. I bought the primer yesterday so looking forward to seeing what that's like x
