Products I Regret Loving - NARS


HOLY MOLY, it's been awhile!! Wanna know why? Because I gave up buying make up for lent! I really tried to stay away from blogs/blogging because I knew it would temp me. But I obviously gave in :( Actually, I'm going to turn that frown upside down because I'm so happy with my purchase!

I only say that I "regret" loving my new NARS Sheer Glow "Fiji" ($42) and NARS blush "Luster" ($27) because they were so expensive! Maybe I'm just a little cheapo when it comes to make up, but after I bought theses two, I can see why they are priced a little high. Ah... I might just found my new make up brand!



So maybe I don't REGRET loving NARS...
I do feel guilty as hell though!


Review:
NARS SHEER GLOW: this product applies perfectly. I haven't found a foundation as good as this one! It's medium (to full) coverage, and it leaves your skin looking like... well... skin! Not cake-y at all, and it is great for everyday wear. NARS carry a lot of shades with yellow/olive undertones, so Sheer Glow is perfect for us Asian girls ;) It is long lasting as well - I have an oily t-zone and I did not experience any problems.

Cons:
  • No pump
  • High cost
  • Gives off dewy look (if you prefer matte)

NARS blush "Luster": Now, I'm not a big fan of "Orgasm" because I personally think that it is too pink for my skin tone; however, "Luster" is perfect if you have a heavy yellow undertone like I do. The fine gold reflexes really compliments my skin color, and it gives me a natural glow without the overdone disco-cheeks look. The color is very subtle - perfect for every day - but mind you, I am NC30, so if you're any shades darker, your skin might only reflect the gold grains (like a highlighter) and the actual blush color might not be as apparent.

Cons:
  • High cost
  • Might not be ideal for darker skin tones

Props for giving up buying makeup for lent, I always feel guilty for buying high end makeup as well but if I really love the product then oh well, especially if it works out great for you :)

im scared to try high end makeup for that exact reason lol. But on the other hand, splurging on a really good foundation is so worth it. I try to go cheap on the other stuff ;)
