A NARS Wishlist


Okay so it's pretty well documented that I'm in love with all thing's NARS (see here, here, here and here.) I'm not sure how they do it but everything I try from the brand just seems to work wonders on my skin. NARS fill a lot of categories in my make up collection they provide me with my all time favourite long lasting base (in my perfect shade), they give my dull skin radiance with my favourite powder, and for those late nights NARS has me covered (again) with one of the best concealers I've tried. I'm just fully in love with the brand, which is quite sad really as they don't currently have counter in the city I live in (Sheffield) and when it comes to make up I really do like to touch/feel and swatch. However, that hasn't stopped my wish list from growing over the past few months so today I thought I'd put together a little wish list of all the NARS products I'm currently coveting after-

NARS Deep Throat

This is an everyday kinda blush for me. On a visit to London last year the MUA showed me 'deep throat' (that sounds dodgy) I actually looked bemused with my darker complexion I truly did question wether this would even show up on my skin tone. However this adds the perfect peachy glow to my cheeks, it also doubles up as a highlight for me as it seems to chisel my chubby cheeks a little. I recently hit pan (I never hit pan on blushes) and need to repurchase this asap as I didn't realise until it was gone how much I actually used it. Also on my NARS blush wish list is the 'Taj Mahal' it's a golden (very golden) bronzy colour that apparently works perfect as a contour on darker skin tones. Watch-this-space.

Eyeshadow Duo in 'Kalahari'

Bit late to the party on this one as this seems to be a popular duo in the blogosphere. After googling lots of swatches and reading lots of reviews I'm come to the conclusion that this would be a lovely neutral pallet, I do believe it could work nicely on my skin tone for a everyday eyeshadow look. I also think the colours would provide a nice base for other eye shadows, a moss green colour combined with these  colours could look lovely (I'm trying to get more creative with my eyeshadow looks this year.)

Contour Duo

There's something about this product that just appeals to me, available in 3 shades that cater to all skin tones these sets are basically a bronzer blush hybrid and a highlighter in one easy to go to kit. Contouring is something that I haven't quite mastered yet (as I often don't notice a difference!) I'd love to experiment with this kit though and I can imagine the darker shade working really well with my skin tone.

Radiance Primer


In January I had a trip to London (I visit London an awful lot perhaps I should just set up base there) on a make over at NARS the MUA used this primer. Primer is something that I'm not at all happy with at the moment, I'm currently using one that does nothing for my skin (I refuse to stop using it until it's finished as it was so expensive.) When the make up artist applied this primer it felt cooling on the skin, had a gel none silicone texture and made the biggest difference to my dull skin. At the counter the lady even showed me my skin before/after applying the primer and my complexion just looked so much more radiant! I think this made the biggest difference to the overall appearance of my skin and the finished look.

Skin Aqua Gel Luminous Oil-Free Moisturiser


The NARS skincare range isn't something I hear much about, however this moisturiser appealed to me. With the words 'oil free' and 'luminous' in the same sentence I was intrigued. If the quality of the skincare line is as good as the make up I can imagine I will probably love. This seems like it would have a gel texture which I personally prefer during the summer time as my skin gets super oily.

Arabian nights pallet 

Wow. That's the only word I can use to describe this pallet. I have lots of eye shadows in my collection but I do think I'm missing something like this pallet. Something for a big bold dramatic smoky eye look, I love how this has a dark purple shimmery shade too it adds some interest and I think it will provide a unique take on a smoky eye. Obviously not an everyday pallet but I am missing something shimmering in my current collection. After googling swatches of this pallet the colours look extremely pigmented too. 

Powder foundation 

So I love sheer glow, I love the light reflecting powder, and I love the tinted moisturiser. It's fair to say I'm a lover of a NARS base, so I'd love to try this powder. As my skin gets oilier I like to switch things up and use a powder through summer time, this one looks really creamy in the texture but also makes promises of a matte base (without the cakiness) I can sort of imagine that this will be sheer in texture perfect lighter base for summer time? Perhaps.

Whew, that was wordy what a long wish list. What are your favourite products by NARS? What are you currently lusting after?
