NARS Luxury Makeup


NARS Picks of 2016

NARS is by far one of my favourite luxury makeup brands. Their products always impress and are of such a high quality, I always find myself reaching for their products on a daily basis.

Their scrumptious colour ranges impress and perfect pigmentation in each product.

The products showcased in the photograph above are a mixture of beautiful warm looks for the eyes, mouth and cheeks.

From left to right:

Isolde Duo Eyeshadow – Frosted ginger / Shimmering copper

Hot Sand Illuminator – A peach champagne shimmering highlighter

Blush in Exhibit A –  Matte red blush which looks utterly beautiful on cheeks

Kuala Lumpur Duo Eyeshadow – Rose gold / Boysenberry infused with gold

Deborah Audacious Lipstick in Deborah which is a beautiful warm chestnut brown

Amsterdam Pure Matte Lipstick a stunning garnet red

This combination of beautiful warming tones for the face and deep colours for the lips will create a beautiful classic statement.

Bronzed shimmery eyes with a warm lip and sun-kissed shimmering cheeks are so appealing to wear on a warm Spring/Summers evening 🙂narsNARSNARSNailsNARSNARS

The nail varnishes showcased in the third photograph above are two of my favourite NARS nail varnishes.

On the left is Pastorale which is a beautiful rose gold, the right is Amarapura a stunning silver chrome.

Products from left to right”

Kuala Lumpur Duo Eyeshadow which is such a beautiful rose gold compact perfect for creating golden smokey eyes.

Amarapura A stunning silver chrome nail varnish which I absolutely love. The matte finish is very appealing and long lasting. I do find I reach for this one regularly.

Hula Hula – A beautiful Hazelnut and Strawberry eyeshadow containing gold particles. A pretty compact for sparkling eyes. This compact is a great choice to create a sparkling daytime look. The golden particles really create a beautiful glimmering emphasis.

Blush in Exhibit A the wild looking red blush from NARS which gives skin a beautiful flushed hue for healthy looking skin.



The delicious looking chocolates photographed with the NARS products are by zChocolat my favourite luxury French chocolatier.

This collection is from their Easter collection, incredibly tasty indeed and fantastic to photograph with NARS products especially with the warm toned chocolatey colours.NARSidolde

    What a thorough account of what seems to be a very worthwhile product. I do wonder about NARS and their environmental impact. Do you know anything about that? Do they test on animals etc? This would be great additions to your blog posts and I think your readers (like me!) would really love to know the background of the product 🙂


    • I’m really glad you enjoyed the post on NARS, a lovely brand with some beautiful products.

      NARS does not test on animals no, it’s a cruelty free brand.

  • Nars is one of my favourite makeup brands too!! Unfortunately it’s not available in Hungary at all, but when I was in France some weeks ago I bought a Nars lipstick, and I was VERY impressed!! As you said, it’s not just the product, but their packaging is also beautiful. Your collection is amazing, I can’t wait to get some more Nars items next time I go abroad. And these photos are gorgeous! Have a wonderful weekend!

    • NARS really is a lovely brand Hayley 🙂 You’ll be impressed.

      If you haven’t tried NARS before I can recommend some products to start off with:

      NARS Sheer Glow Foundation
      Audacious Lipsticks (all are beautiful)
      Liquid Highlighter
      Their Blushes
      Eyeshadow Duos

      You’ll love the brand, it was love at first try for me!

      Laura xo

  • Wow, that blush is GORGEOUS! I don’t think I recall ever seeing a blush that color before! I’ve heard amazing things about NARS’ illuminators, so I think I may check them out come summer. The only products I’ve ever tried from the brand were an eyeshadow duo and a lipgloss. I really need to check them out more the next time I’m at Sephora! Thanks so much for sharing, girlie, and I hope you have a wonderful week ahead!



    • The blusher is gorgeous isn’t it? I wore ExhibitA our to Top Model UK Worldwide and it really looked lovely in the photographs.

      NARS illuminators are really lovely, it’s great if you pick a powdered highlighter to sweep on top to lock it in place if you’re planning a longer night.

      Of course! Thanks so much for reading 🙂

  • Is it bad that I want the chocolates as much as I want the makeup! haha
