Hi, everyone! First of all, I would like to apologize that I have been MIA for quite a while. I’ve been busy sorting out my life right which is causing me a lot of stress lately… hence the lack of energy to do a blog post. But, I’m doing this quick post for you all. So let’s get started!
Yesterday, I got a message from my friend, Jasmine about a makeup sale in Orchard which I decided to just have a looksie for what they have. I was completely intrigued because they have NARS products to put out. I wasnt really expecting to buy a lot because, I know these are sale items and they would be expiring in 2-3 years so the company needs to get rid of them but I decided if I should get some, it should be something I would be using often.
Let’s begin with the face products. As much as I wanted to try the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer, unfortunately its not available. They only have compact concealers to which im not so keen on cause im sure the formulation is a lot better since they have reformulated into tubed cream ones. So i’ve got 2 NARS pressed powders; one is in the shade of Desert which is on my skintone. I was very happy to get this one cause its very unlikely to find your shade in a sale, so i’m lucky! Its perfect for setting my makeup and touch ups when my skin starts to get oily. The second shade is Heat which is a medium brown and is 2-3 shades darker my tone. Im sure youre wondering why i picked this up. I have a thought of using it as a bronzer/contouring powder cause they dont have any proper bronzers that is on sale and I know that NARS are great when it comes to powders so I hope this works!

My main reason on that sale is the blusher! and YES! I managed to grab a blusher of my choice that is the Super Orgasm. It has the same combination of pink and peach with gold glitter shimmer that I find the most flattering blush for me ( apart from Seventeen’s Stare Struck). NARS Orgasm is theyre best selling blush and so as in Sephora. The difference between Orgasm and Super Orgasm is the glitter. In Orgasm, you get gold glitter shimmer that is enough for everyday look while for Super Orgasm they amped it up a bit. You could visibly see the gold glitter and I think this blusher is perfect for a night out or just press a little bit on your cheeks for a day look.

Next up, the NARS Multiple in Maldives. I maybe late in the bandwagon but I made it sure I pick it up this time. Maldives is a shimmering pink champagne which can be used as a highlighter, blusher, lip color or eyeshadow. I really love the idea of this and the color is very flattering for me. It has a sheen finish when blended. Im sure im going to love this one!
