Ugh, you! *shakesfist*

NARS Persia reminds me of Mac saffron ( LE item), but it will go perfect with Galapagos and Mekong as well:) I'm surprise no one has switched up yet!

I"m new to the forum but I'm a makeup junkie and I am a fan of NARS cosmetics. 

 

I intend on buying the blush, single ES, both ES duos, lipstick and possibly the shadow pencil. I am one of those who have good results with the Nars Shadow pencils. However, I do use them as I beleive Nars created them to work, i.e to be used with powder shadow over them. The shadow pencils are an oil based instead of a wax base as with many other pencils. Also, the shadow pencil does not contain any waterproof, water-resistant or setting agents.

I couldn't wait any longer. I ordered Seduction, but decided to get Madly blush instead of Dressed to Kill lipstick. I wanted to scratch another blush of my list. I will get Dressed to Kill later along with Disco Inferno polish. I'll take comparison pics of Seduction when it arrives.

I'm going to have to try Dressed to Kill. I love NARS red lippies; they're more work friendly than many of my MAC versions.

 

I think Seduction would be too cool for me - I just gave away Dolce Vita and I don't want to repeat that mistake.

specktra_welcome.gif You've definitely found some kindred spirits here.

 

 

So far, I'm 100% sold on Seduction and Dressed to Kill. The more I think about it, I'm leaning towards grabbing Bouthan and waiting to see if Mad Mad World really calls to me, but who knows what will happen.

post #490 of 655
i took the plunge and got both seduction blush and dressed to kill lipstick at the nars boutique last week. i'm a bit nervous about the lipstick as it's darker/vampy-er than what i normally wear. i'm most excited about trying the light reflecting loose powder. is that weird? to be this amped about a finishing powder?
post #491 of 655

Nope I am very curious about it as well.  I haven't worn face powder in forever mainly cus I am getting close to 50 and lines and all but after the MAC MM BP I am sold on them.  Nars will probably be my next purchase cus I think I missed out on the chanel illuminating from Dec.  I had surgery on Nov 30th and missed tons of stuff

post #492 of 655

I hope you're feeling better since your surgery, elkaknits.

 

Can someone please tell me the differences between the loose and the pressed powder? Why would you choose one over the other besides preference? I'm not sure which version would be best for me to get.

post #493 of 655

When I was younger I always wore loose powder.  I liked using the floofity brush or big poof and for some reason it just seemed so much more sophisticated to me.  I seem to recall reading that if it was loose you could put it on lighter.... something about them adding stuff to keep the powder compact but since peeps press their loose pigments these days I guess that was wrong.  Unless when you press your loose pigments you add something to them.  I don't know what I'm talking about

 

BTW brushes are way easier to wash imo then those sponges they inclose with pressed powder.  I always felt like I would be using a oily sponge or contaminating my powder.  The loose you can shake out and they tend to have a shaker cap between the container and actual lid so you are not contaminating the entire product.  It probably ends up being a personal preference thing 

post #494 of 655

and thank you so much for asking.  I am feeling MUCH better.  

post #495 of 655

i ended up getting the loose powder because i've been meaning to find a good finishing powder, and i already have a hg blotting powder. i'm using it for the first time today and it's controlling shine in my t-zone very well. after i dusted it on, i noticed that it really smoothed out my complexion without looking cakey; very natural, "skin-like" finish, no white cast. i'm impressed so far!

post #496 of 655

Hi folks!!!  I've sooo missed you guys.

 

I know I've been gone for like forever (I had a good reason, trust me), but I did pick up a few items from the NARS Spring 2013 collection.  The pic below of me I'm wearing Persia on the eyes (Kilimanjaro on the browbone, Mekong in the crease):

 

 

 

 

 

Looking forward to catching up on posts!

Thanks for this info, and it's great to hear you're feeling better.

 

 

th_welcomeback2.png  EngineerBarbie. Persia looks great on you. I'm trying to avoid NARS eyeshadow. I don't want to have a ton compacts, but Persia keeps tempting me.

LOL @ floofity. Like you, years ago I heard that something (chemical?) that kept the powder in compact form wasn't great for my oily skin. Perhaps it was potentially pore clogging or something? I don't recall the details. And also like you I feel like loose powder is just cleaner due to the avoidance of a grungy, oil absorbing pad and lighter weight on my skin.

CC - I tend to choose pressed powder if I want it for touch ups on the go. You don't want to carry loose powder in your purse.

post #499 of 655

I got MMW and Persia yesterday!  Yay!  Looking forward to wearing them...after I wax my brows.  I skipped on Bouthan because I felt it did not show up on my skin well and although I wanted the gold pencil, I tried a pencil in another color and it did not work out for me.

I love your idea of pairing it with Thunderball. It makes for a nice wearable look and it suits you very nicely. If you have Autumn Leaves lipstick, I imagine it would look great with this look. :)

Hey doll!!!! I am so happy to see you here again & I Love your new avatar pic - you look beautiful!!! Love how the Nars items look on you too eyelove.gif

post #503 of 655

My Nars Yachiyo brush came today. I don't find it to be stiff or scratchy at all. Its not super soft, but not too bad. Yay! It didn't feel like there was anything in the box - just like you guys said.

post #504 of 655

Yayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy! pompom.gif

I think we all painted a very "stabby" picture of it :D :D

girlhaha.gif yeah, I was scared to touch it!  Mine has no stabbies lol.gif  Its really a different kind of brush for sure. I like it.

post #507 of 655

I'm glad you like it, elegant! I was using it again the other day and I'll just say it doesn't "feel good" to use. Most of my other brushes feel nice. I was expecting luxe. Again, it works well and I got a discount.

 

I received my order last night. Seduction is very raspberry looking. I can see how it would be intimidating. Either I was in a bum mood or my bathroom lighting stunk (I think both were true), but I wasn't excited by any of the three blushes I purchased. I'm wearing Luster now and there's just a little sheen on my cheeks. I'll try Seduction later this week in my bedroom vanity where there's a little more natural light. I can tell I like Seduction I was just not all OMG about it.

post #508 of 655

I was expecting Seduction to have a bit more plum to it. Ahhh, Miss TT - I hope it was just a mood/lighting thing pretty.gif

post #509 of 655

My Seduction blush was delivered. I love it! The lighiting is too horrible for me to take pics. On me, Seduction is the matte version of Mounia. It's a deep raspberry color and is darker than Dolce Vita. Dolce Vita also appears to be the matte version of Crazed. I need to say "on me" because I've seen swatches were Crazed and Dolce Vita do not look like the same color. But they look similar on me and even in their pans.

 

I really hope you can make Luster work for you MissTT, especially since I was pushing for you to get it. And thanks for the loose vs pressed powder tip. I don't think I'll be taking the powder with me, so I guess I want the loose version.
