NEW FAVORITE MASCARA!!!
I have been trying to find my holy grail mascara.. I loved the Urban Decay Big Fatty, but this is for sure my new favorite. I got this for free with the purchase of my Urban Decay Vice Palette at Ulta. The brush isn't the softest, but I feel its stiff structure, and tiny bristles is what makes this mascara so amazing. It lives up to the name, and gives your lashes the look of falsies, except THEY'RE REAL!
The only negative I have to say about this product is that there isn't much of a handle, and so it can be a little difficult to maneuver, but I think that is an attribute to the mini size.
So far I have had great success with this product. Dabbing a small amount on my forehead, nose, and tops of my cheeks I don't find myself having to use my blotting papers at all throughout the day. Even with my darker complexion(NW45/Nars New Guinea), I don't think it gives me the ashy effect that some light powders do. Definitley worth the price, I can foresee me having this product for quite a while because a little bit goes a long way.
Lastly, i'm not sure if it's just me or not, but this powder has somewhat of a peppermint smell. I don't think i'm a huge fan of that, but it does go away once applied.
SKEPTICAL AT FIRST, BUT NOW I WOULDN'T GO ANYWHERE WITHOUT IT!!
When i first saw this product online I was extremely skeptical, and for the price of $29 I was even more turned off. However, after having it for about 6 months, I still have plenty of product in the bottle, and I use it everyday. It keeps my makeup looking prefect for 10+ hours. (I live in Florida also, so with the heat thats amazing). It also has a refreshing feeling when it goes onto the skin. Will repurchase, and repurchase.. WORTH EVERY SINGLE PENNY!
BEST EYELINER EVER!!!
No joke, this is seriously the best eyeliner I have ever used.. I have to agree 100% with the name, this liner last all day and beyond.. you have to use a makeup remover for it to budge which is the type of product I was looking for in regards to lasting power. The applicator is thin, and gives you the ability to create a very gorgeous winged eye without the costume-like thickness of some liquid liners.
WILL REPURCHASE 100x over!
CAN'T SAY ANYTHING BAD ABOUT IT...
LOVE LOVE LOVE this.. feels amazing on the skin, great color range, very blendable, extremely hydrating, and protecting (with SPF).
Mix this with a Nars blush, and some mascara for a under 5 minute flawless look. It's the one product I won't be without this summer.
I read a few reviews after i purchased this and contemplated taking it back because they were all horrible, but i wanted to give it a try. The consistency of the product is phenomenal, the color options are great. The packaging sucks. It seems as if the twist design would be complimentary to using it as an under eye concealer, but NO.. it's messy, the cap drips product out, and at $29, its a bit on the pricey to be as wasteful as it is. I have had this concealer for about 1.5 months and it's already out, and I have not even used it on a daily basis. I wanted to love this but i couldn't.
Adds a beautiful glow
I am New Guinea in Nars Sheer Glow, or MAC NW45. so on sight, I was a little skeptical that the bronzer would not show up on me. After wearing it for a few days I started to notice a significant difference. My skin had dimension that it didn't before and the refined shimmer in the bronzer gives your skin a glow that is so natural. LOVE THIS STUFF!!!
LOVE LOVE LOVE
Don't be afraid of the color in the bullet, its BRIGHT orange so it maybe intimidating...For a softer look apply a red lip liner around the edges and blend with the lipstick. Great price, with excellent color payoff. Non drying. All in all its one of my TOP 5 lipsticks.
LOVE THIS foundation.
I have been using MAC studio fix fluid(NW45) for years, and wanted to try something that is lighter, but still provided me with some coverage. This NARS foundation has a wide range of colors to suit the needs every skin tone. It is very blendable and gives the skin a satiny type finish. I wouldn't say it has any type of "GLOW", but for me, the glow was the fact that my extremely dry skin was moisturized and could actually shine with this foundation.
