My Nars Love Affair

Whoa...where you been all my life?!

 Sorry guys that I have been gone for so long! Everyday I thought about blogging and something just always popped up and derailed me from it. I hope you guys can excuse my absence. I've picked up some sweet products during my break and can't wait to tell you all about them! There will definitely be more to come!

Nars Trio

 First off, Nars...I know alot of bloggers rave about Nars, especially their sheer glow range,but I've always looked at the price and eek, I run away! At $42 it better make me look like a goddess and have Henry Cavill breaking down doors to get at me! Hey, a girl can dream!

Well, I had some extra change and thought I'd suck it up and see what I have been missing!

Nars Sheer Glow Foundation in Syracuse

Ok, this is an amazing foundation and so worth the money! I was matched in the color Syracuse that just melted into my skin. This is actually the first foundation to match my skintone perfectly! The woman at Sephora said that you have to shake the bottle first, then apply with your hands. I wasn't too comforatble with that. Having always had problematic skin,I have a thing with bacteria on hands and the touching of my face.Don't care how clean your hands are, hands off, Ahhh! I apply it with my Real Techniques expert face brush and it works just fine.

 It feels amazing on the skin. It's so lightweight and my skin can breathe. Definitely a love! I get a nice dewy finish that looks so natural.

The downside is that it doesn't come with a pump and it can be a bit messy. The salesgirl at Sephora said that they made a pump, but it was an extra $6. I told her I'd pass for today. I may get one later, but it isn't bothering me too much yet.

I have to say this is one of my new favorite foundations! Will definitely repurchase.

Nars Lip Gloss in Stolen Kisses

Nars had a promotion of buy 2 products get a free gift. I settled in on this lip gloss. I wanted something that would be a great everyday nude, with just a hint of color. I tried on stolen kisses and fell in love! This color is a mauvey pink tone that works great when wearing a smoky eye or with just a bit of mascara.

I like that this lip gloss formula is not sticky on the lips. It is very moisturizing!

I purchased this for $24.

Nars Illuminator in Orgasm

Don't you just love free gifts with purchase?

I was happy when I saw her putting this in my bag. Here are the claims from the Sephora website.

What it does:
This light-reflecting liquid glides on to refresh and enhance the complexion, creating a shimmering incandescence. Wear it alone, or pair it with makeup to transform your skin from ordinary to extraordinary.

I tried it as a highlight on my cheekbones and I wasn't really impressed. It gave a hint of shimmer on my skin tone. It's a peachy pink tone with added shimmer. I think it would show up better on fairer complexions.  I think the Super Orgasm shade might suit me better since it has golden flecks in it.

Not sure I would purchase. I do enjoy a powder highlight.

So what are some of your favorite Nars products? I must admit, I'm addicted!
