Collective (huge?) NARS haul!

On July 15, 2010 by Michelle Ng

Hi all!

This will be a collective NARS haul and let me emphasize the word “collective”. This is in no way bragging but merely to show products that I bought recently. Good things must be shared and even I myself love looking at other bloggers’ hauls. It seems as if I were the one who bought the items too! Hence, we must spread the joy by posting haul posts (:

My first nars items that I have gotten quite some time back was a makeupalley.com swap with a fellow US makeup pal. I had 2 Laura geller blush-n-brighten blushers that I seldom use. They were gorgeous to look at but I never got a chance to use it. Hence, I decided to swap those 2 away, sadly, for 2 nars items.

As a few of you might have already known, I am notorious for holding many sprees at one go until everybody is broke. Even I have to tighten my budget now because of all my sprees. Last month or so, I held a beauty.com spree and narscosmetics.com spree when they were having a 20% off and 18% off sale respectively. There was also a spree from beauty ticket when the site had a private sale on Nars items which were much lower than retail. With such tempting sales, how can I not buy at least 1 item? Unfortunately, my itchy fingers added more than 1 nars item into the cart and I ended up with this:

All the nars items from the makeupalley swap, beautyticket.com, beauty.com and narscosmetics.com. Ya, I kind of went nars overload recently :P

From the swap, I received Taos. blush and Night porter eyeshadow. They had only been swatched once. Night porter reminded me a lot of MAC humid but they are actually different.

Swatches of Night porter and Taos. Taos might be slightly dark for my liking. I am thinking of letting both of them go. What do you think?

 These loots were bought from the NARS private sale held at beautyticket.com. The lip liners were USD4.99, eyeshadow duo was USD13.99 and the cream eyeshadow was USD8.99. “You tell me la, how not to miss this sale!”

These are the swatches. I am loving Jilted Love lip pencil. Sardina is a little bit too dark for me. I might be letting it go. These were my first lip liners, eyeshadow duo and cream eyeshadow from NARS. The eyeshadows are very pigmented and creamy. I might do a LOTD, but not this month as I am only using products from Project Use Me for July.

 Desire was bought from beauty.com while Amour and Deepthroat were from narscosmetics.com. Amour can only be purchased from the NARS website.

 Swatch of Deep throat. It is a coral with shimmers. I love this coral but am not very fond of the shimmers. I am more of a matte blusher type of girl.

 Swatch of Desire. I was quite surprised when I receive this as it is HOT PINK! The blush is more wearable when blended out and it is matte which I love too. You must apply this blush light-handedly or else you will look like a doll.

Swatch of Amour. It is a pinkish coral. Quite matte but still has some shimmers to it. My favourite of the bunch!

My current updated NARS wishlist:

  • Madly
  • Gilda

 

That’s all! :P

If you want more swatches, feel free to request for it (:

Thanks for reading ~
