Nars has a reputation in the beauty world for being a fashion forward brand, with fun edgy packaging and high quality products – not to mention a shade range to the envy of many brands! Nars has some cult status products – from their Sheer Glow Foundation to their Radiant Creamy Concealer, the Orgasm Blush and their recent hit with the Climax Mascara.
This holiday season they’ve released their newest range with edgy packaging and fun colours. I have two pieces from the collection that are packaged into the cutest little stocking stuffer sized gifts that I just had to share with you all.
Firstly, we have the Nars Little Fetishes Dolce Vita/Capri Duo*. Retailing at $35, this little set contains a beautiful miniature blush and highlighter in two of Nars’ most popular shades. I feel like Nars are really well known for their blushes and I’ve loved the opportunity to try a new (to me) shade in Dolce Vita – it’s a well pigmented blush so definitely something to use with a light hand and then build up. I’m relatively new to Nars highlighters but I have loved Capri – a light gold with a shift of pink, this is a super flattering shade on my skin and would suit anyone with fair-medium skin.
They also have their Chaos Velvet Matte Lip Pencil Duo in Zipped/Decibel*. I’ve been around these parts for some time and until now had never tried their Velvet Matte Lip Pencils – and I regret that immensely. If you’re not too great with matte lipsticks this surprisingly isn’t one to stray away from – these aren’t a drying matte and are really soft and easy to apply to the lips. Unlike many matte lipsticks they don’t melt into the lines of the lips but more sit on top of them without accentuating any dryness or the lines themselves. They’re really easy to apply with the crayon form and don’t last all day but are easy to reapply and layer.
Swatches bottom – top: Nars Dolce Vita, Nars Capri, Nars Decibel, Nars Zipped.
While they may be small – they are mighty! These two little duos from Nars are stocking sized bites of beauty heaven and make a huge impact as a gift – not one to miss this holiday season!
