Let's Talk About NARS!

[ Edited ]

 

A lot of the other big beauty brands have their own threads now, so I thought, why not NARS?

 

Let's share news about new collections, feedback on products, etc here.

Have you picked up anything from the collection so far?  Do tell! 

Re: Let's Talk About NARS!

Frack. Naturally, I want the light shade from Old Church Street and the dark shade from Rue Allent. I'll need to see them in person, but I suspect this means I'll be picking up both once they hit stores.

Re: Let's Talk About NARS!

The Pro brushes and Charlotte Gainsbourg collection are up on the Nars website now.

@KMariel Just visited the official Nars site for the first time in ages (so much for being notified when it finally launched!) and was so thrilled to see Charlotte on the front page. Very interested in that Glow Tint . . . too bad I just ordered a Dr. Jart BB yesterday to replace the bareMinerals Complexion Rescue I'm sending back tomorrow (Sephora's going to hate me).  😂

 

@HoneydewK That whole brush set looks AMAZING and I want it. If only. I usually limit myself to the Sephora Pro brushes, but only recently have I realized that it's been a (mostly) hit or (occasionally) miss experience . . . if anyone remembers those "innovative" Philippe di Méo IT brushes.

Re: Let's Talk About NARS!

I'm pretty excited about Nars pro brushes. They look like Hakuhodo but the handle's so sleek and modern. I ordered small and regular brightener brush 0.0 I'm very much interested in the finisher brush  so if anyone gets it review please <3

ok so ! i was super excited about the launch of these new sheer non glittery bronzers. i've recently fallen into loving bronzer (not to look tanned but just to give my face a warm dimension) and had yet to decide which full size bronzer to buy. 

 

what's super cool is the shade range -- 4 shades and one supposedly designed for fair skin. AWESOME ! but i immediately noticed on blogs how orange the lightest shade 'seaside' looked, and how laguna looked the same amount of lightest but just a different--more bronzey--tone. so i went in today and swatched and even talked to an equally pale salesperson about how we both felt laguna looked more suitable for our pale skins. now, i'm sure NARS had something in mind with this seaside shade (maybe for pale skins with more pink undertones ?), and i'm no bronzer expert. but i went with my gut and got laguna.

 

comparing swatches in natural lighting:

Wow seaside looks like a blush

Re: Let's Talk About NARS!

Laguna looks really nice in your swatch! I don't like the original Laguna, but perhaps I'd like the glitter-less version...

 

That being said, I currently love my UD Beach Bronzer too much to stray.

Re: Let's Talk About NARS!

We need to discuss the Unfiltered 2 blush palette.

I purchased this online after seeing people rave about NARS blushes everywhere, and when it arrived it swatched terribly. However, I was willing to give it another chance due to the fact that i spent 50 dollars on it.

Lo and behold! It's gorgeous on the skin! My everyday go to, plus golden sands makes a killer highlight.

Re: Let's Talk About NARS!

@TayllorM, I'm glad you like it! The first brush I used did not work well with it so I didn't think much, but when I went back with a different brush and it worked so much better! I'm so glad I did that. Smiley Happy 

XOXO,
Marieke

I had the same experience! A fluffier brush I normally use didn't apply the colour well, but I went back in with a denser brush and it applied beautifully.

@Mochapj

 

I like the idea of this collection a lot!  I have my eye on Alice, Jeanette, a Glow Tint (if I can find more swatches of all shades), and Blindfold.

 

I don't wear NARS Velvet matte lip colours as I find them drying.  But Blindfold is so beautiful, I might make an exception.

Re: Let's Talk About NARS!

I'm curious about the glow tints but I KNOW I'm going to be somewhere in between Light and Medium, what a weird jump...

Re: Let's Talk About NARS!

@malday

 

I am very interested in the Glow Tints as well.  It is the type of product I would get plenty of use out of.   I am not sure if I could use a Medium, or I might need the Medium-dark (or perhaps in between).

 

I wonder why PR packages did not include the Medium-Dark tint.  I have found plenty of swatches of the 3 glow tints, but not the darkest one.

@greenchilli This is actually from the Nars site itself and you may have seen it, but given the Glow Tints page won't load for me via the site right now, may be worth a shot. (Pure white background either very helpful or not helpful at all.)upload_4765372032550151205.jpg

@kathmb

 

I saw that picture as well - some blog had captured it.  Thanks for sharing. :-)

 

The #3 looks too light, and #4 looks a bit dark for me.  I am sure since these are tinted creams that they would accommodate a wide shade range.  I just not sure if my shade will be covered by #3 or #4.

 

If there were reviews by folks with deeper tones, I could have an idea...

 

 

Re: Let's Talk About NARS!

Honestly, I'm pretty convinced at this point that the Medium-Dark was a last minute addition when they realized that it wasn't on-brand for Nars to have no darker colors. No bloggers seem to have it and all the promo shots show three bottles of the Hydrating Glow Tint, not four.

Re: Let's Talk About NARS!

@tamikat I've been wondering if it's because the product is so sheer that it barely shows up at all on the lighter bloggers I've seen.  If it barely shows on them, what hope is there it would show up on a darker complexion.

 

In the past I haven't seen NARS working with many darker skinned bloggers.  I wonder why that is...?

Re: Let's Talk About NARS!

So thanks to @veronika23 tip off I was able to do some digging on Temptalia's site to find out what the Gainsbourg collab is made up of.

 

Looks like there are a few new product categories, and an old one returning;

- the gloss looking items are called 'lip tints'

- there is a 'hydrating glow tint' (not shown in her swatches, yet)

- the multiple tints from years ago have made a return, it seems

- the eyeshadow duos are labeled as 'velvet eyeshadow' 

 

This collection has a lot of new formulations, it seems Smiley Surprised
