Brand Starter Pack | The NARS Products You NEED

Monday, January 25, 2016

If you have been following my blog for a while now then you probably know that NARS are one of my favourite beauty brands. Not only is their packaging so effortless and sleek but the quality of their products is just too damn good. Last year I was actually lucky enough to be noticed by the brand on Instagram in which they sent me the most gorgeous phone case!! 
But the question I get asked so often during the beauty blogger chats on Twitter is "What products do you actually recommend from the brand?!" As NARS have such a huge variety, (their latest release being the velvet matte skin tint) it can be quite difficult to know where to start. And so, today's post is a roundup of the top five NARS products you NEED in your collection. 


Tinted Moisturiser | £29.00 
The ultimate your skin but better look, this is my absolute go to for everyday wear. Whilst I'm spending a long day at university, I don't want to place anything too heavy on my face but I still acquire a decent amount of coverage; this is where the NARS tinted moisturiser comes in. This adds a radiant glow to my face, with a medium coverage which can be easily built upon with a heavy duty concealer. And when paired with the pore refining primer this lasts all day, additionally as it's oil free I don't have to worry about the dreaded 4 o'clock shine. This is also the perfect summer staple with an SPF of 30. 

Blush in 'Orgasm' | £23.00 
This beauty isn't a cult classic for no reason! Add a pretty flush of rose gold to your cheeks and as this already contains gold shimmering speckles, there's no need to add a highlighter - Well, unless you're feeling super fancy that day! Although this looks quite scary in the pan, it blends effortlessly for a natural and healthy glow.

Audacious lipstick in 'Carmen' | £24.00
Every girl needs a classic red lip in her collection and for me this is my perfect shade. I will go as far as to compare this to the Chanel offering. Yes, I really did just say Chanel!! The pigmentation of this lipstick is insane, withstanding the eating and drinking test which says a lot from me as I constantly feel the need to reapply my lipstick. But with this beauty I could afford to forget it at home whilst being out all day and still look near enough perfect by the time I came back. 
If there is any NARS product worth splurging on, then it's definitely an audacious lipstick. 

Stick concealer in 'Chantilly' | £19.00
Most people tend to rave over the creamy radiant concealer which is fab for concealing blemishes but if you're all about highlight and definition like I am, then the stick concealer in 'Chantilly' is the one for you. With its flat topped edge it is perfect for concealing around the brows, so much so that my brows are never complete without this; it defines and lifts my arches, giving the illusion of a 'HD' look. As I love a good defined arch this concealer is my brow best friend. Use it to highlight your under eyes and bridge of your nose too! Furthermore it's enriched with moisturising 'Vitamin E' to rejuvenate and hydrate the skin. 

It's a known fact that NARS produce some of the best palettes, especially for the cheeks. The offering shown in the picture was the limited edition Virtual Domination cheek palette from winter 2014. For just £45 I received three blushes, a highlighter and bronzer which considering one blush can cost you £23 this was an absolute bargain. This also comes in super handy for travelling as you can take your blush, highlighter and bronzer all in one. There's usually always a palette available with a similar offering and I've linked a cheek and eye option below. 

And that was my top five picks from NARS. Have you tried anything from the brand? Which products would make your top five?! Please see below for links to all of the above products mentioned. Until next time,
