About few weeks ago I made a purchase that I had been meaning to do for about a year or so. I finally bought Nars Deep Throat blush! This has been a cult favorite for many years now and some even prefer it over Nars other popular blush shade Orgasm. I too own Orgasm however over the past two weeks Deep Throat has soon become my favorite Nars blush. In fact I haven’t used anything else on my cheeks!
As soon as my NARS goodies arrived I knew I had to film my first video tutorial using them! The shadow trio is particularly beautiful and it’s really easy to make lots of different looks with it. My first tutorial is very simple, a little shaky and certainly not perfect. However I hope you all enjoy watching non the less, even if it is for the comedy moment that happens at the end! Sadly I also forgot to film applying my lipstick – but you guys don’t need to be shown that right? Due to this I also fail to mention what colour I am wearing. For those interested it is MAC Full Speed lipstick and is a beautiful coral colour which is perfect for the summer.
Thanks for watching and please leave any feedback or comments here on the blog, or on the Specktra Youtube channel itself. Oh, and if you feel like it please subscribe to our channel!

Fall’s runways were dominated by two words: bold and feminine. Strong shouldered and form-hugging silhouettes, extreme heels and provocative thigh-high boots, and a color palette of classic hues turned up a notch to Technicolor volumes. These trends also illustrate the NARS Fall collection.
“For this collection, I wanted to create something fragile and strong, and seductive but not aggressive,” said François Nars, Founder and Creative Director of NARS Cosmetics. The combination of strength and refinement has become a hallmark of NARS, and is particularly fitting this season as the brand celebrates its 15th anniversary.

The four limited edition duos are Copacabana/St. Barts, Portofino/Malibu, Maldives/Riviera, and Maui/Palm Beach, each designed to flush the cheeks or lips, or to highlight those gorgeous peepers with a soft shimmer.
Personally, I don’t own any of the NARS Multiples, but I’ve heard really really good things about them, and right now NARS is offering free shipping on orders over $50, so I may be adding a couple of the Multiple Duos to my case!
