Nars Porn! A Nars Haul...beware lots of photos!

Let me begin this post by saying that I love Nars. There is something about seeing a Nars product that makes me go a bit weak at the knees. They are gorgeous and they better be as they cost a small fortune. I recently placed another order at my online shop of choice when it comes to Nars, Kiss and Makeup.

Nars may be my favourite makeup brand but there is just no way I am paying the ridiculous prices it is sold at here in Oz. 

Now you may have seen these products on a lot of blogs and that's precisely why I bought them. I had seen so many rave reviews I just had to see them for myself.

The first thing on my list was the Nars Eyeshadow Duo in Dogon (RRP $33USD).






This is a gorgeous eyeshadow duo that comes with a shimmery taupey cream colour that has a green tinge and a matte dark navy (almost black) colour. The shades complement each other really well and mix to make a beautiful taupe grey with green undertones. I'm super excited to experiment with this duo.

Of course I had to get my hands on the eyeshadow Outremer (RRP $23USD). I was mesmerised by this when it came out a little while ago. It is a gorgeous cobalt blue shade which actually matches my newly purchased bridesmaid dress (my mum is getting married in May next year!) perfectly. I was thinking a hint of this colour on my eyes for the wedding could be a nice touch, although I will have to play with it a bit first to see if it looks right. 





I was a bit disappointed by how this applied when swatched, its a little on the sheerer side. Although I had heard that when I was reading reviews and it hadn't affected the bloggers love of this shade so I will play around and report back soon!

My last purchase was a bit of a random one. I had been eyeing off the Nars Multiple in Copacabana but when I swatched it in Mecca I wasn't all that impressed. I still wanted to get a multiple so randomly added the shade Maldives (RRP$39USD) to my cart. I'm pretty impressed with this so far. Its a gorgeous bronzey/pink shimmery colour perfect for a highlight!






Ooo and I also got a pencil sharpener. I know I know $6USD just to have Nars written on your pencil sharpener?? What can I say I'm a sucker for that black rubber and simple white lettering!


And here are the gorgeous swatches, enjoy!

L-R: Maldives multiple, Outremer Eyeshadow, Nars Dogon

Do you guys love Nars as much as I do??

Great haul! I really want to try Dogon.

Outremer is a bit tricky to work with- I find that I need to build it in layers and it's a bit difficult to blend. But the colour is worth it in the end!
