Collective NARS Haul + Swatches!


Hey Guys!
Lately I’ve been OBSESSED with NARS. I’ve loved NARS for a long time, but since I found my new HG Foundation, NARS Sheer Glow, I’ve been lemming for more and more NARS products (especially eyeshadows since I’ve NEVER bought one…until NOW). A couple weekends ago I picked up two NARS blushes (Gina, Madly) and three NARS eyeshadows (Night Clubbing, Mekong, Galapagos). Yesterday I ended up picking up two MORE blushes (Angelika, Luster) and one more eyeshadow (Ashes to Ashes). I really wanted NARS Deep Throat Blush but they didn't have any in stock at the Sephora I went to. I thought I'd share with you swatches of everything I picked up. Are there any products you would recommend me trying next from NARS? If so, leave me a comment below!

  3. NARS = LOVE! The eyeshadows look so beautiful. I'm expanding my NARS collections as well, it is such a great brand. I'm thinking of buying a few more blushes and a bronzer, before I get into the eyeshadows.

  5. Love your NARS haul!! I have Gina and Luster. Luster gets lots of loving since I use it as a highlight over Lovejoy. I have been wanting Deep Throat, Madly and Angelika for awhile and hope to pick those up!

  9. Woahhh, nice haul woman!

    I've been eying (eyeing?) Gina blush for the longest time, I can't wait to see a FOTD with it.

  12. I love love love NARS! Especially the eyeshadows! I must get Mekong!

    You should definitely check out Bali. It's an amazing matte taupe-y color that is amazing for so many looks. The texture of it is like butter, it's fantastic!

    Oh! Also Laguna bronzer is really nice! It has no red in it at all so it's impossible to look like an oompa loompa if you accidently put too much on.

  13. Nice haul. Gina reminds me of Melba by MAC, do you know if they're comparable?

  14. Love everything you got! I've been wanting Galapagos but everytime I go to Sephora, it's sold out! It's such a beautiful shade :) If you don't already have it, I recommend their blush in Lovejoy, it's one of my favorite blushes ever and so is Deep Throat :) Enjoy!

  20. Fabulous haul!! Love Galapagos and Angelika, Deep Throat is a gorgeous blush too, do you have>? x

  21. @Schnelle Couture - I don't like them better than MAC. MAC just blends better for me. NARS is incredibly pigmented though...as an all over lid colour they are fantastic. The first 3 as a crease colour are a bit harder to work with due to their glitter, but still blend like a high end brand should.

    @Aleksis - I'll have to check out "Moon Fleet" now... :P haha

    @Straight Up Glam - I'll definitely check out Bali. It sounds amazing! Thanks for the recommendation. I already have Laguna...one of my fave bronzers!

    @she walks iin beauty - Melba and Gina are definitely in the same family. I'll have to check out Melba in person...can't tell by swatches I've seen online. NARS Gina is REALLY tangerine though...maybe more so than Melba?

    @Ebru - Already have LoveJoy! Must get Deep Throat...I'm so sad it was sold out :(

    @Erica - Turkish Delight was my first ever NARS purchase. It gets lots of loving. :) As for "Madly", it is probably my FAVOURITE NARS blush/product I have!!! I definitely recommend it.

    @Holly - I NEED Deep Throat. I swatched it next to my Orgasm blush and they look pretty similar but Deep Throat looks better IMO. I don't use my Orgasm that much...

  22. Great haul my dear. Nars is my fave brand hands down. I adore Deep Throat and Madly blushes. I also recommend Bali e/s single if you like neutrals.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Ooh great haul! Can't wait to see what Gina and Madly look like on you. I don't own any Nars blushes but I may be tempted now after your post :)

  24. I find that make-up here (http://ca.strawberrynet.com/main.aspx) is a little cheaper then in Sephore and the department stores - and free shipping too! I've ordered make-up and haircare from them before and they're excellent :)

  25. Yay! You jumped on the NARS bandwagon!! Everything is so luxurious.. It is such a treat to myself when I purchase something NARS. Just as if I was purchasing Chanel.. (which I haven't gotten to that point yet.. Lol).

    I'm glad you picked up Madly! I've always wanted it and for some reason It took me SO long to purchase. Its my every day blush color.. and I love, love, love it!

    I haven't gotten Gina.. although it looks so pretty. I figured I most likely have several shades of blush that are similar. Is it very peach on you? Or does it pull coral? I always want to find a pretty peach blush.. but they ALWAYS pull coral/pink on me!! It's so aggravating.

    Night Clubbing and Galapagos are my favorite eye shadows.. But both of them broke and I have to keep them in little plastic baggies. So be careful not to drop them! Night clubbing is so pigmented - and because mine is broken.. it gets on everything! (It was just like breaking MAC Carbon, which I've done twice). Mekong and Ashes to Ashes are both colors that have been on my wish list for some time. Let me know how you like them?? I have a GC from Christmas to Sephora and I'm compiling a list of what I want.

    I have Luster and Angelika as well. I don't use them that often.. but they are very nice as well. My next blush purchases will be Sertao, Silvana (neither of which I can get on Sephora's website.. WTH!?? And I'm kind of lusting Taj Mahal (Also can't get at Sephora) and Exhibit A! :)

  26. Great Haul :)

    Do you find that some of the NARS blushes apply blotchy? I've only tried one NARS blush which was 'Super Orgasm' and it applied so uneven :( I want to try more blushes, but I'm afraid that they'll end up being the same.

    ReplyDelete
  27. @Shadowy Lady - someone else suggested Bali. I NEED to check this eyeshadow out ASAP! Thanks for the recommendation. I love neutrals!

    @Natalie - The only CHANEL I've bought is the Bronze Universel. I really REALLY want to try Vitalumiere.

    I've been LOVING Madly. It suits my skin perfectly...probably my favourite blush EVER! It's so pretty and blends beautifully.

    If you have MAC Peaches blush, Gina is pretty similar on my skin (although I like Gina better). Gina shows up peach on my skin and doesn't pull coral. It looks a lot scarier in the package, but actually is quite flattering (Taj Mahal scares me...if you buy it you must do an FOTD w/ it so maybe I can not be so scared haha). I'll definitely do my next FOTD with Gina to show you :)

    I want Sertao so bad as well as Deep Throat. Those will be my next two purchases :) Is it bad that I'll probably end up getting all the NARS blushes? LOL

    Mekong is the best brown ever...I never can find a brown that is dark enough and this is DARK! Ashes to Ashes is such a pretty wash of colour. More FOTDs to come :D

    @Jessica Autumn - Super Orgasm is really gritty so that's probably why it applied blotchy on you. I have the regular Orgasm and I just don't find I reach for it that often. I know many people love it, but there are so many better blushes by NARS. Definitely pick up a different blush (I suggest NARS Madly) and you will change your mind!

  28. OMG! I love the Angelika blush and Ashes to Ashes eyeshadow.

    @Cheryl
    Deep Throat is on my wishlist too. NARS makes the best blushes imo. I used Orgasm for years, never went for the Super orgasm though. It was just way too glittery.
