Nars Audicious Lipstick in Anna

    "Oh Anna, where have you been all my life?" That's what I ask myself when I apply this lipstick. For I am in love, deeply, madly. From the moment I opened the smooth shiny black case, seeing a pink/mauve/rose hue, to when the dreamy texture covered my lips, I knew I had found a new treasure.   The new Nars Audacious lipstick has rich pigment, giving opaque colour in one stroke. It also has a rich texture that glides on. The more deep shades leave a slight stain on the lips, whilst the more natural shades fade evenly. Nars have really done it with this one. They have come out with a lipstick formulation that will match the cult status of their eye-shadows. Some of the highlights: Rich Pigment, giving opaque coverage,…

Quick Lipstick Roundup: Marc Jacobs Role Play, Nars Damage, Dolce &Gabbana Poetic , Guerlain Gwen

I've been playing with some new lipsticks recently. 3 of these are new formulations that I haven't tried before, so I was very excited. I bought Marc Jacobs Lip Gel in Role Play, Guerlain Rouge G in Gwen, Dolce & Gabbana Gloss Fusion in Poetic, and Nars Sheer Lipstick in Damage. Marc Jacobs Lip Gel in Role Play: A beautiful natural nude, neither pink nor brown, a full coverage creamy delight, with a luxurious magnetic case. This is very nude on me, perfect for heavy smoky eyes. Dolce & Gabbana Fusion Gloss in Poetic: A gloss center is surrounded by a block of colour, together they apply a of hybrid glossy full coverage colour on the lips. I was surprised at how long-lasting this was, despite being so glossy. Poetic is a bright raspberry shade which…

Nars Mati Hari Blush

Nars Mati Hari blush was one I hesitated to get as I thought it would be too similar to Desire, which while I love, I find it hard to wear. However the two are not similar at all. Whilst Desire is a warm shocking pink that will show up quite vivid and strong on most skin tones, Mati Hari is more of a cool toned mauve pink. It also goes on less harshly and is more forgiving. I've took pictures in direct sunlight and in the shade to give you more of an idea of the different tones it pulls. The one in the shade is more true to life. Nars blushes have always been a favorite of mine and Mati Hari is no exception. I always purchase my Nars products from Space Nk.…

Nars 413 BLKR Eyeshadow Duo

I don't know if I've mentioned this before, but I love Nars! Yes, Nars is one of my favourite makeup brands. The Nars 413 BLKR eyeshadow duo had to be mine. The left shade is utterly beautiful, a Dusty Mauve. It goes on beautifully and blends effortlessly. The shade on the right, a dark burgundy/black with shimmer is also pretty but not as great. It doesn't go on like I would have liked, the shimmer somewhat disappears upon application. I have been wearing it as a liner smoked out, with the Mauve shade all over. It's a very pretty look. It's similar to Rouge Bunny Rouge Sweet Dust Seriema. But the Sweet Dust Seriema is more smooth. Bobbi Brown creme shadow in Heather is also similar. Swatches below. I bought mine from Narscosmetics.co.uk for…
