Nars has always been a brand I imagine the Queen wearing or even Lady Gaga herself. The make-up always looks so flawless on its pretty little shelf, gleaming in the hollywood styled mirrors and their lights. In Space NK the other week I decided to treat myself and pick up a few bits and pieces, I opted for the sheer matte foundation and the new 'God created the woman' eye-shadow palette.
The palette came with a contour/shading brush and the primer for eye-shadow (which I have fallen head over heels in love with). The palette has six shades, four glittery and two matte.
The shades are all ever so pretty, the pigmentation is the best I have honestly ever seen. The shadows are beautiful to blend, so smooth and effortless and it is so incredibly easy to create a striking smokey-eye. My favourite shade has to be from the bottom row the very first shade, a golden light shade which looks beautiful in the corner of the eyes. My only criticism is that the shades don't have cute little names... literally the only bad thing I have to say about this life saving little palette, which is the most perfect size for travelling.
With the palette you get their primer for eye-shadow and their contour/shading brush. The primer is amazing and keeps the eye-shadow sticking around all day, right till the point when you take off your make-up at night. The brush I use for blending eye-shadow and oh my ladies, does it work like a dream!
I have very oily skin so of course their sheer matte foundation sounded appealing to me. First of, I like heavy coverage foundations due to my oily skin so the sheer coverage is a bit annoying but it can be built up to a fuller coverage but of course that is more time consuming in the mornings when I'm already running out the door late as it is. The foundation feels light on my skin, easy to blend and is the perfect shade match for my skin tone!
Although its still not the one for me, not my soul mate foundation sadly. If you have any fuller, matte coverage foundations you could recommend me to me I will love you forever!
