I had my first encounter with Laura Mercier last year through #RustansBeautyAddict and since then I’ve been a fan of their Candleglow foundation. This year I’ve discovered another brand that I’m begging to love, NARS cosmetics.
While I’ve used the famous NARS blush in Orgasm, I’ve never really tried their other products. So I was excited when I got hold of these NARS goodies–Charlotte Gainsbourg Hydrating Glow Tint,
The Charlotte Gainsbourg for NARS Collection presents the iconic chanteuse’s signature style through François Nars’ vision of beauty.
Easy glowing. Fresh-faced perfection, right at your fingertips. This limited-edition formula, inspired by Charlotte Gainsbourg’s story and signature style, awakens dull skin and evens out tone with sheer, buildable coverage. Its weightless, refreshing gel-cream delivers foolproof, brush-free application. Simply massage it into skin with your fingertips for a healthy-looking glow that evokes Gainsbourg’s effortless French beauty. Oil free. In four shades: fair, light, medium, medium-dark.
I only have a few favorite makeup base and more often than not I only wear it when I need to. So it’s such a delight to know there are tints such as NARS’ hydrating tint. It’s lightweight & gives that healthy glowing tint that leaves my skin looking well-hydrated. I also like that the medium shade is perfect for my skin tone.
Laguna Sun Wash Diffusing Bronzer
Matte bronzer takes on a new dimension enhanced by the warmth of natural light. Designed with Soft Blurring Technology, this innovative powder captures the light and diffuses imperfections for soft-focus bronzing that enhances and entrances. Smooth. Silky. Weightless. Effortlessly delivers a wash of allover color or layers for concentrated warmth. A translucent matte finish allows the complexion to show through for the most natural effect. Skin looks like skin—just warmer, softer, and more perfected.
It’s a first for me to wear a matte bronzer because usually the bronzers I have give that sparkle effect that makes for a good highlighter as well. I like though that NARS Sun Wash Diffusing Bronzer in Laguna is love! I love how it compliments my skin tone and even works as sort of contour powder.
Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Get Off
The application of a lipstick combined with the convenience of a pencil in a jumbo crayon design. Lips are instantly saturated with rich pigments and a velvety matte finish. The long lasting, non-drying formula is enriched with emollients for a creamy texture, while a combination of unique silicones ensures long-lasting, seamless color for hours. Use for lining, all-over lip color, or pairing with another lip product.
Matte lippies will always have a special place in my heart! So it was no brainer that I’d fall in love with NARS Velvet Matte lippie in Get Off. Creamy but non-drying and the peachy shade gives that natural flushed look on me.
base: NARS Charlotte Gainsbourg Hydrating Glow Tint, cheeks, NARS Sun Diffusing Bronzer in Laguna, lips: NARS Velvet Matte Lippie in Get Off, eyebrow: Estee Lauder Brow Pencil, eyes: K-Palette liquid eye liner
The hydrating tint is everything! I think it works really well for dry and combination skin. Giving that surge of hydration with an instant glow. Like you can hashtag #iwokeuplikethis hahahaha. As for the bronzer and lippie, I like how it gives the right amount of color on my face. Currently this is my default look, fresh skin & clean lines.
