A couple of weeks ago, NARS followed me on Twitter. I literally had to double check it was really them. Then they only went and asked me to DM my contact info so I did and they said they wanted to thank me for being such a loyal #NARSissist and send me a gift.
I literally could not believe my eyes – if you’ve read my blog for a while you’ll know I have big love for the brand. Like seriously big love. So a few days later I opened the loveliest package and inside were 4 full size products – all of which we’re new releases.
Palpitations ensued and once I’d calmed down I started giving each item a whirl. I’ve been testing these for a few weeks now and I’ve been really enjoying them. I’ll be sure to post full, in-depth reviews but for today I’ll run through my initial thoughts…
NARS 413 BLKR Blush* – Firstly, this is immensely pigmented. You only need a smidge on your brush to add a lovely, vibrant pop of pink to the cheeks. NARS blushes are a must have in my collection – they’re beautifully pigmented, long lasting and incredibly easy to blend.
NARS 413 BLKR Illuminator* – I only have one other Illuminator, Copacabana which is very pink toned – this is very golden but in a subtle way. It’s very light weight and sheers out beautifully. This has a beautiful irredescence that catches the light beautifully.
NARS Matte Multiple in Altai* – Ah the new Matte Multiples, I’ve had my eye on these since I first saw the promo shots. Altai is the lightest of the 3 bronze/contour shades and I’ve found this applies very much like Laguna and blends quickly – it’s also very long lasting. Possibly a little too orange for a contour on my skin tone.
NARS Matte Multiple in Vientaine* – This shade is darker than the aforementioned and I did initially think it would be too dark for me but a little applied softly really warms up my complexion. I think I need to find the perfect brush to apply these.
Thank you so so much to NARS for their generosity – I still can’t believe they we’re so kind.
Are you a #NARSissist?
Love, Katie xo
