Guess what I’ve been doing recently!? If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know that my feed has been jam packed with all things Nars. Yes, you may think I am completely and utterly addicted! And you would be correct! But this past week, I got to play with their new Spring items and I was in make up HEAVEN! I went back to my favourite Nars branch in Fenwicks to my favourite Account Manager, Becci for another make over and a chance to play with what Nars is launching this Spring!
You may remember that before Christmas last year, I worked with Nars and Fenwicks for the first time!
You can find the post here!
That experience was incredible. It really changed my view of beauty blogging. It opened my eyes to new ideas, new make up applications, new methods, the lot! And since then I have taken on a lot of what I learnt from Becci in my own make up application as well as my make up procurement and blogging! My first time working with Nars helped me appreciate make up and beauty on a deeper level and banish some of the blues I’ve always had when it comes to my relationship with make up!
When Becci invited me back to Fenwicks to see all the new Nars Spring items, I jumped at the chance!
Becci is a credit to Nars and the beauty industry as a whole and I couldn’t think of anyone better to work with on the new Nars launch!
Let me introduce The Wanted Palette. An eye shadow palette of dreams! It is literally everything you need in one palette! Becci referred to it as “the wardrobe”! Which means, it has everything you may need for all sorts of looks all in one place! Whether it’s day time or night time, you can play with all the colours and amazing pigments to achieve the look you want!
The first thing that jumped out at me when I opened the Wanted was the glitter! Nars as a brand is known for it’s pigments but this is taking it to a whole new level. Ya girl isn’t neccesserily a pink girl but that pink glitter is like a punch in the face of make up!
I was desparate for Becci to work her magic on me with this beautiful palette and show me how we can go from day time to nigh time all with one item!
With all good make up comes a good base and foundation. When I visited Nars in Fenwicks last November I felt like there was a lot of choice when it came to coverage, pigment and skin matching but since the launch of their Spring collection, I realised I was so wrong! As you can see from the snap above, Nars have extended their foundation range to a full 33 shades and pigments!
You can imagine how much fun I had picking shades and fine tuning which ones would suit me! As always, Becci was so helpful in finding which colour suited me! We tried four different shades on my very pale and sun neglected skin to ensure I would get the correct one to highlight all my best bits and help to cover any blemishes!
Originally I went for Sheer Glow in Deaville but this time tried two shades darker and one lighter, including Salzburg, Gobi and Vienna.
Each tiny drop was applied on different areas of my skin across my face to match the different areas. The first thing I noticed, even while covered in different pigments, was how many more options there were in the new Nars foundation collections!
We settled on Natural Raidance Longwear in Deavuville as it was still the right pigment and matched my skin tone like a second skin!
Let’s talk face first! You may know that I am absolutely obsessed with Nars Primers and the Radiance Primer is my one Holy Grail item of make up! I suffer with combination skin that is oily in areas but very dry and cracked in others. With the help of warming the Primer between your fingers and gently working it into those cracked areas, it goes way instantly! I even find that when I remove my full Nars face, those problem areas are still fully moisturised and healthy looking all thanks to the amazing primer!
This Spring, Nars not only has the new Wanted Palette and 33 new shades of Foundation to launch but also an amazing Liquid Blush.
I know how scary that sounds! And, believe me, Becci had to massively reassure me that a Liquid Blush was not something to be frightened of! She talked me through the best away to apply Hot Tin Roof and how best to get results!
I shouldn’t have been surprised when she pumped the tiniest amount onto her hand and massaged it in to warm it up! With all Nars products, the secret is to use your hands and the warmth of them to apply the make up and make it go a lot further!
Hot Tin Roof has knocked me sideways! From being dead against and frightened of it, I am now telling everyone I know to buy it! It’s amazing! Picture Nars Orgasm, in liquid form, gently rolling over the apples of your cheeks to make you seem like you’ve just got home from a sunny weekend abroad! It’s AMAZING!
This Spring, Lip Covers are taking the reigns. Coming from someone who NEVER used to wear anything on my lips other than lip balm, Nars has 100% converted me to bold lips. After my first Nars visit I invested in so many deep red Lip Slides and it transformed my entire image. It’s only Becci that’s given me that confidence! And, she did it again when I visited her last week.. She encouraged me to go PINK! I tried the amazing Summer Fire, an exclusive of the Spring Collection, on my lips and it transformed the whole look!
What do you think of my look using so many of Nars Spring Collection?
Stay tuned for my review of some more of the amazing items from the Spring Collection!
Special mention to the amazing Becci who is an absolute credit to Nars and without whom, I would not be the beauty blogger I am today!
