NARS Laguna Illuminator : Swatches, Review

 

Hey everyone!

I was reorganising my makeup collection last weekend and I realised I had a couple of NARS products which I hadn’t reviewed! NARS is one of my favorite high end brands and I bought a few products before moving back to India from Japan last year. One of the items I picked was the Laguna Illuminator. I had a tough time choosing between Orgasm (peachy gold) and Laguna and ultimately chose this.

Price : $30 for 30 ml (I bought it for JPY 3500)

5 High-End products worth the splurge!

 

Hey everyone!

Today I’m sharing a few favorite high-end, luxury makeup items that I feel are worth the big bucks! This is by no means a list of all of my favorite high end beauty items but just a few that I have been loving lately. Do share your luxury beauty favorites in the comments section below!

 

1. Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation (Rs 3000)

This is my favorite foundation and that is saying something because I’ve tried a ton of them! Its a classic liquid foundation – neither too runny nor too thick which gives medium-high coverage and a flawless natural finish. It makes my skin look amazing every time and it stays put throughout the day without oxidising or turning greasy on my skin. It photographs really well too which is why its perfect for special occasions, especially weddings. Highly recommended! Full review here.

2. YSL Rouge Volupte Shine Lipsticks ($37)

I couldn’t NOT mention the YSL Rouge Volupte lipsticks here. They are simply the prettiest lipsticks around (look at the gorgeous gold packaging!) and the formula is wonderful. The classic range is creamier while the Shine range has a glossier finish and a slightly sheerer formula. It still packs on plenty of pigment and gives a gorgeous, luscious look to the lips. The formula is buttery soft and it hydrates better than any lip balm I’ve used. It also smells like mango which happens to be my favorite fruit! If you like pinks, do check out #17 Rose in Tension. See full review here.

NARS Angelika Blush : Swatches, Review

 

Hey everyone!

Today I have another NARS blush review for you, a gorgeous pink blush – Angelika. This is described as a “cotton candy pink with gold and silver sparkle”. I picked this up last month around my birthday. Since I already had a deeper warmer pink (Amour), a rich coral (Torrid), a dusty rose (Outlaw) and a neutral (Unlawful) in my collection, a bright pink like this seemed like a nice pick to add to my NARS blush collection.

Price : JPY 3000 + Tax

NARS Light Reflecting Pressed Setting Powder

 

The NARS Light Reflecting Pressed Setting Powder is one of the most raved about products from NARS. I picked this up as part of my leaving Japan birthday haul and have been using it since then. This is unlike any powder I’ve tried so far and at first it seems like a waste of money but once you figure out what it does and start noticing the difference it makes to makeup, its hard to not use it every single day!

Price : JPY 4500 + Tax
