NARS Singapore - coming soon ^^

Oh my gosh, finally NARS will be making its debuts at CK Tangs counter in Singapore (tentatively in Nov or Dec)!!  Thanks to Andy Lee, a celebrity makeup artist in Singapore for the awesome news (read here Andy Lee's blog )

Here I’m sharing some NARS products that are in my makeup stash.

NARS Blush – Orgasm

I got this blush at NARS Hong Kong counter a few years ago. This is in peach pink with golden shimmer.

I personally not a fan of shimmery shade but I still picked this up as it is an iconic blush for NARS.  NARS Orgasm is highly pigmented so a very light handed application is required for a natural flush.

NARS Lipstick in Petit Monstre – Limited Edition

This is a nice berry with gold undertone to it.  It glides on smoothly on my lips, leaving a lustrous finish.  It also contains conditioners and antioxidant ingredients that can nourish and protect lips.  It is hydrating as the label says.

NARS Smudge proof eyeshadow base

This is my HG, especially if you have super oily eye lid like mine.  NARS eye primer keeps my eyeshadow stays longer and less creasing!  Thanks to Miso Jenny for sending it to me <3!  Now I can use it daily without worrying of running it out =) 

NARS Trio Eyeshadow – Calanque (Spring 2011 collection)

Liking the light caramel and soft bronze with glossy finish J.  Use it dry or wet.
I realized that I have too many neutral eyeshadow in my makeup stash.  The reason being they are easy to work with and work appropriate.  Special thanks to Cutie Fishball for the CP:)

Based on Temptalia’s review  (Temptalia's NARS Calanque review ), NARS Calanque has a mix of gold infused platinum with silver flecks, light matte caramel and rich antique bronze infused with gold. 

My favourite is the soft bronze shade as the colour is obviously pigmented.  However, it can get messy because of the fall out when apply. 

My last thought is only if the soft bronze and matte caramel be the bigger shades instead of the silver glitters.  What a waste…

Thanks for reading and have you good weekend J
