Whether you are totally new to the NARS line or just looking to add a few extra goodies to your stash I've decided to round up my top ten NARS products of all time. Without a doubt NARS is the one brand that graces my makeup counter more than any other. Not only was it my introduction into higher-end cosmetics; they haven't produced a product I don't love - making this top ten quite a challenge. Read on for the scoop on my "can't live without it brand".
Laguna Bronzer : A brown based bronzer with subtle hints of golden shimmer running throughout. It's fairly universal on most skin types and gives a healthy glow + highlight without being super shimmery.
Dual Intensity Blush 'Fervor' : For me, no one does powder products quite like NARS - I actually have five blushes from NARS (six of if you count this one being two). They contain the perfect pigmentation, are finely milled, and apply like a dream.
Highlighter Blush 'Miss Liberty' : Much like the blushes the highlighters are also top on my list. This one is a bit more shimmery than some of the other highlighters in my stash but I love this application for summer nights out.
Yachiyo Kabuki Brush : This brush is the ideal shape and size for applying blush to the apples of the cheek, getting right into the hollow to contour, and for hitting the cheekbones with highlighter.
Creamy Radiant Concealer : My most used concealer. It is ideal for blemishes and red spots and a sheer wash is perfect for under-eye.
Lipgloss 'Mezmer' : This product is new to my collection (thank you Sarah!) but I had to include it simply to talk about the new formula NARS glosses are being produced in. They are super smooth, not sticky, and leave behind a very pretty stain as they wear down.
Illuminator '413 BLKR' : NARS Illuminators are one of my favorites for cream application, I use this product on my cheekbones, as an eyeshadow base, a highlight for my the inner corner of my eye, on my brown bone, and on my collar bone in the summer. A pin size drop of this bad boy goes an incredibly long way. You get a lot of bang for your buck with this product.
The Multiple 'Portofino' : The multiple is a great way to add color to my face in cream format. It is also newer to my collection but just as loved. Portofino is a perfect peachy shade (similar to Orgasm without the extra shimmer Orgasm has). This one works on cheeks and lips seamlessly lending to it's name - The Multiple.
Lipstick 'Heat Wave' : NARS lip products have a very dear spot in my heart. In fact I could do an entire post on just my NARS lipsticks/pencils - shout out below if that's something you'd like to see! Heat Wave is definitely one of my favorites. The matte formula is vibrant but not too drying on the lips. It also has some killer staying power and the color is perfection - it's that amazing red/orange perfect for summer, or anytime really.
Lip Pencil 'Palais Royal' : I own quite a few lip pencils (both satin and velvet) so it was hard to narrow down to which color I threw in. Palais Royal is a satin dark shade that works for both summer and winter. The pencils are by far the most foul-proof way to apply dark/bold colors and have fantastic formulas.
