The Best Makeup from NARS

Favorite NARS Products

I’m a big sucker for anything by NARS, and I feel like their more recent releases have been extremely well done. If you haven’t checked them out lately, now is the perfect time!

Remember that you can earn Ebates money back when you shop at NARS, the normal amount is 5%. You can learn more about Ebates here if you haven’t signed up. You can also sign up through my Ebates referral link, which will give you $10 after you spend your first $25!

Must Have Products from NARS

1. Velvet Lip Glide
Buy it at NARS, Sephora or Nordstrom
Try Bound

It’s mostly matte, but not that unflattering matte that makes small lips look small. The Velvet Lip Glide is pretty hydrating as well.

2. Velvet Matte Lip Pencil
at NARS, or Sephora
Try Dolce Vita

This is one of my go-to lippie formulations. Well pigmented and smooth, it just flows nicely on to your lips and offers a lot of semi-matte pimgentation.

3. Powermatte Lip Pigment
Available at NARS, Sephora
Shown in Get it On

This one is super pigmented and once it dries it does.not.budge. For hours. I love that!

4. Pro Palette
Buy it only at NARS

The flat palette is all magnetized on the inside, and you can put any makeup pans in it that you want. I mostly use NARS products in mine, I love that you can order a lot of the products in just the pan, ready to pop into the palette. I have it in small and large (you can see them in the picture at the top of this post).

Note: While all of NARS products are a great matte black, they get dirty the moment you look at them funny. The products in the picture above are actually pretty new, I think I’ve had the bronzer and blush pictured for only this summer! The pro palettes are no different. I only break mine out for travel, but the outside is all spotted. I just ignore this, they function very well and hold a lot of product.

Tip: The magnet isn’t great with MAC pans, but these disc magnets make them work and they’re still flat enough to fit in the palette.

5. Eyeliner Stylo
at NARS, Sephora or Nordstrom
Shown in Carpates

An easy to use, super pigmented liner.

6. Audacious Mascara
at NARS, Sephora or Nordstrom

I love the plastic molded bristles on this brush. They work really well for pulling apart my lashes, so I love to use this to layer over another mascara, pulling apart any clumps.

7. Velvet Matte Foundation Stick
Get it at NARS, Sephora or Saks Fifth Avenue

This was just released, and I’m already obsessed! Expect a full post soon for just this foundation. It’s very easy to use, full to medium coverage. It is creamier than other stick foundations, so you’ll find it works even on dry skin.

8. Radiant Creamy Concealer
at NARS, Sephora or Nordstrom

There’s a reason this concealer is so talked about. It is flawless. Medium to full coverage, it blends perfectly… I keep it in my makeup bag in my purse, in my office at work and on my vanity at home.

9. Liquid Blush
at NARS, Sephora or Nordstrom
Try Orgasm, Dolce Vita is also great

The same great shades as the powder blush, but the wear is longer and it looks glowier. I use about 1/3 of a pump on to the back of my hand, then apply with a fingertip.

10. NARSissist Unfiltered Cheek Palette II
at NARS, or Nordstrom

Just… yes, so pretty. I love it!

11. Sun Wash Diffusing Bronzer
at NARS, Sephora or Nordstrom
Here in Laguna

The classic Laguna Bronzing Powder is a touch too dark and pigmented for me. But this newer updated version is a lower pigmentation and I think much easier to use.
