Nars Fall 2017 Steel the Show Collection: Review, swatches and FOTD!

Hello there beautiful *waves from Greece*! Hope the first week of September has been amazing for you. As we’re now solidly approaching autumn, I thought I’d stick to reviewing those fall collections which tempted me. Nars is one of these brands which always surprises me pleasantly with their limited edition collections, as it’s real evidence that quantity isn’t everything. The Nars Fall 2017 collection, in particular, consists of only six items, all of them top quality though. Let’s have a look at the swatches and my picks.

Nars Charlotte Gainsbourg Review: Ready for that smokey eye!

It’s Fri-yay! I hope you’re all ready to enjoy a well-deserved weekend. Even if I’m still back home and on holiday, I can assure you the weekend is still invaluable since my family is off from work and we get to spend more time together. A weekend can never go unnoticed! I really wanted to fit in a review of my picks from the Nars Charlotte Gainsbourg collection before the weekend, so I hope it’s helpful for those that are thinking about grabbing something from this collection, or those who need some smokey eye inspiration! I’ve swatched the entire collection already, if you’re interested in swatches only/as well.

Swatch Sunday: Introducing the NARS Charlotte Gainsbourg Collection for Summer 2017

Hello there! I hope you all enjoyed this beautiful May weekend and recharged your batteries! I’m a happy bunny because I’m flying to Greece tomorrow and will be spending sometime with family (under the sun!) before a very busy summer starts! I think I took a lot of make-up with me this time, including a couple of items that I picked up from the NARS Charlotte Gainsbourg Collection, swatches of which are included in this post! For a review and eyelooks, please click here. In general, it’s a gorgeous collection!

Milk, dark or white chocolate exclusively made by Nars anyone? The NARSissist Loaded Eyeshadow Palette has all three!

Hello beautiful people! Happy Monday! I hope April started nicely for you all? It certainly did for me, as London has been mostly sunny since the start of April! Can’t complain when the north of Europe gets bright; life is good. On another note, do you like chocolate? I *LOVE* it. And I love anything that bears a chocolate-related name (yes, Too Faced, I’m dreaming about you right now), or reminds me of chocolate colours etc. And that’s exactly what the new NARSissist Loaded Eyeshadow Palette made me think when I saw it. It’s a paradise for golden-brown lovers! But let’s have a closer look at this palette and you’ll see what I mean.

Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil and Velvet Lip Glide- review, swatches and comparison!

It’s lipstick week for me this week! I’m determined to organise my lipsticks in terms of colour and formulation (matte, satin, nourishing etc). This is quite a task as I have accumulated a rather large collection through the years, although some of my older lipsticks I mostly collect, rather than wear. Was having a look at my Nars lipsticks yesterday and posted an Instagram photo which lots of you liked. So, I thought I’d give you my thoughts on a couple of more recent launches by the brand: first, the Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil and second, a personal favourite, the Nars Velvet Lip Glide.
