It’s been a while since I did a beauty haul. I have been collecting a handful of beauty products, I guess now it’s about time that I finally break it down what I had bought recently. I desperately needed some more makeup (yeah, right!) stuff, so here is my Mini Nars Beauty Haul.
This one is rather exciting for me because I did the unexpected and ordered some Nars beauty bits online. Now you’re going to ask “Elif, what’s so exciting about this?” Well, that’s because I sadly cannot get hold of Nars products here in Belgium, which is probably good for the bank but that’s besides the point. I am still not 100% at ease with ordering makeup online without having to try it first. But since my Nars “must-have” list was getting out of control I decided to take the plunge- #yolo. So, here are my very first Nars beauty bits (shock horror).
As you may notice, I played on the safer side of the things… well, colours. I wanted give Nars Duo Eyeshadow a try for the longest and I can’t believe it took me this long. We all know by now that I am a huge sucker for neutrals, and when I saw Nars Duo Eyeshadow in Key Largo I just couldn’t help it. It was tiny bit different than what I expected but that wasn’t anything major. Key Largo consists of a rich bronze shade and a light creamy-beige shade. I was after this duo mainly because of the bronze shade, and as for first impression, I am obsessed with the colour pay off and the smoothness of the application. I’ve been probably wearing these two together religiously ever since I got them.
I certainly didn’t need to get another your lips but better kind of nude, BUT I am glad I did. I know I didn’t chase after my wildest Nars lipstick dreams (which would probably be a bright red lipstick), nevertheless the Nars Sheer Lipstick in Cruising is something I can easily rock everyday. It’s sheer with good pigmentation, highly moisturizing, and the colour itself is a pinkish nude- kind of colour and finish that you can easily apply without a mirror. I am super happy that I have Cruising on the go, such a fresh touch during the day. I am having a major break from bright reds at the moment, but now that spring is here I can again go back and forth between nudes and corals.
What are your favourite Nars products? I’m clearly looking into purchasing some more, I would love it if you have any suggestions!
