Let's Talk About NARS!

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.

 

The audacious thread: http://community.sephora.com/t5/Lips/Show-Me-Your-Audacious-Collection/m-p/1695820#M10941

Re: Let's Talk About NARS!

@blackkitty2014 I'm not sure. I haven't seen NARS advertising it at all.

Re: Let's Talk About NARS!

Does anyone have any idea how much taxes and duties would be to ship to the US?

I get free shipping on my first order, but how much would I be paying for the T & D?

Re: Let's Talk About NARS!

@Javadoo, I purchase regularly from Selfridges and shipped to the US. The UK Vat is always removed, and there's no Customs duties. (I think you'd have to purchase approx $850 before Customs duties are applied.)

Re: Let's Talk About NARS!

@Javadoo   I order from Cult fairly regularly.  What is nice is that since you are purchasing from the US, the UK VAT tax is removed from your purchase when you log into your account.

I have never been charged duties.  I believe cosmetics and skin care are exempt from that.  There may be a $ limit, but I'm not sure.  For some reason the amount $300 is in my head, but that doesn't mean anything. lol

I put Charlotte Tilbury's Flawless Face Filter in my basket.  It's $30 GBP.  When the VAT is removed, it's $25 GBP, which right now is $32.48 USD.

I was not charged any tax for it.

 

Re: Let's Talk About NARS!

I’m not sure how i missed it in the description, but this palette is a cream palette and is very, very greasy

Re: Let's Talk About NARS!

@Mochapj @SportyGirly125  I've been using the palette for a couple of days now and really like it.  My skin tends to get dry so I do like the creams.  I find the colors very complimentary (they are on the sheerer side, at least on me).  Cream or powder, liquid or palette, makeup - and beauty - is personal to every one of us Smiley Happy

 

Re: Let's Talk About NARS!

@seekingtruth glad the palette is working for you. 

RE: Re: Let's Talk About NARS!

I was so excited for this palette which I saw the first promo pics and then I realized it was a cream palette...

Re: Let's Talk About NARS!

@Mochapj say it isnt so .... i'm not big in cream palette ... so heart break ... Thx you so much for posting Smiley Happy You save me a return trip Smiley Wink

Re: Let's Talk About NARS!

@blackkitty2014 @Mochapj I have it and I actually like the formula. I guess it depends on people’s preference. I like that it is multi purpose and that it is really pigmented.  It’s a great formula to boost a powder highlight. 

Re: Let's Talk About NARS!

Thx @SportyGirly125 ... i saw your picture in the other post ... want to comment on it but ppl interrupted me (at work) lol.  You look gorgeous!!! I found the cream products are a bit too complicated for me Smiley Wink I got so many good cream products but most of them only got used once or twice Smiley Wink 

Re: Let's Talk About NARS!

@blackkitty2014 I see.  I know some people are a fan of creams and others are not.

Re: Let's Talk About NARS!

@SportyGirly125 glad you like it. Different strokes for different folks. I don't boost powder highlight with cream and I have oily skin so I'm probably not the target market for this one.

 

While I don't find NARS Orgasm flattering on my skin tone, I do appreciate that they branched out with the colour range for this palette. I was mostly sharing because in all the IG posts I saw about this palette I never saw anyone mention it was a cream palette. That was a huge surprise and I thought others might appreciate a heads up, too.

Re: Let's Talk About NARS!

@Mochapj I see. I thought it was powder at first too until I saw the description. I know some people will be disappointed that it’s not a powder but if you like or love creams I think it would be a great addition. Sorry to hear that Nars Orgasm doesn’t work on your skin tone. 

Re: Let's Talk About NARS!

@SportyGirly125 I wanted to see it also bec I do like creams and to layer with my drier skin plus colors looked a bit cooler. Are they? I’ll have to go investigate. 🙂Glad you like it. 

Re: Let's Talk About NARS!

@Sunnysmom They are on the cooler side except the bronze shade. Here are the swatches on me. 51CFB73B-0D61-4B81-8764-B1F4B09C5B2A.jpeg

Re: Let's Talk About NARS!

@SportyGirly125, thanks for posting swatches and sharing your experience with this palette.

Re: Let's Talk About NARS!

Hey thanks so much @SportyGirly125 super helpful! 

Re: Let's Talk About NARS!

@blackkitty2014 I wasn't planning to buy it anyway so I wasn't bothered, but it was a real surprise when I put my fingers in to swatch and it wasn't powder, LOL.

 

I've seen a few IG beauty news accounts saying it wasn't a very good palette but nobody elaborated why. Having seen it, I'm guessing it was due to the texture. It felt a lot like they made the multiple formula into a palette.
