NARS Autumn Favourites.


In case you hadn't realised, I'm going to be talking about Autumn A LOT for a few weeks now, or until the excitement of Christmas takes over. And the brand that has been completely ruling the roost for me for the past few weeks is NARS. It was only the start of this year that I lost my NARS big V, and since then I've added quite a few items into the mix and slowly seen them take over my make-up routine.

One of the latest additions from NARS is the Smokey Eye Compact, that I was lucky enough to win in the beautiful Jennie's giveaway. It's a kit containing is a gorgeous trio of eyeshadows, a long wear black eyeliner, and a handy little brush. I was a bit daunted by the eyeshadow shades at first, but they're definitely more suitable for evening wear, but you could mix the two matte shades for a lighter, day look too. I usually steer well clear of kohl eyeliners, but this one is fantastic; it seriously does not budge until you attack it with some eye make-up remover, think of the eye equivalent of the Bourjois velvet lipsticks. 

You can't avoid NARS blushers, for me they're just the best in the business. Unlawful* is one of their latest shades which is a gorgeous brown toned peach with some shimmer running through. It's great for making the switch to more Autumn appropriate items as I don't notice the missing bronzer quite as much as this shade is perfect for adding a subtle contour. Liberte is absolutely beautiful for  the cooler months too, being a lovely burnt orange shade that's gorgeous on all skintones.

Lastly, is lips, and my favourite new lipstick that I actually forgot to photograph! The new Audacious range has been such a hit with a fantastic shade selection, and Rita* is the perfect deep, sultry red. I've been getting a lot of wear out of the Dolce Vita Velvet Matte Lip Pencil too, which is a beautiful bitten brick red. The formula of both are absolutely fantastic too, so long lasting, so you can slurp as many lattes as you'd like without fear of it all disappearing. 

Are you loving any NARS products at the moment?

  5. Everyone is doing these 'best of' NARS posts and it is not helping my wishlist! Haha, I'm yet to lose my NARS 'big V' as well hehe, but definitely plan on losing it soon! That analogy fits in very well with their risque shade names LOLS.

  6. I've never actually bought anything from Nars (i know!) there's no beauty counter near where I live and I really like to see colours in person. I think I'm going to have to get over it and just order some things online though and everyone says how good the blush is and I really want to try the smokey eye compact.
    Im also in autumn overload! I want all the cosy jumpers in lovely deep autumnal colours

  19. Haha, I'm sorry! It turns into an expensive little habit but I've found myself buying less high-street for the occasional more high-end treat :)
