NARS X Steven Klein Collection



Last Wednesday, my NARS order finally arrived and I was excited; well actually my sister was the most excited as I had ordered one of her birthday presents and she couldn't wait to see it and literally stared for a while at how beautiful it was.

The first thing that went into my basket was the NARS One Shocking Moment Palette and it's actually a lot bigger than I expected it to be, to be honest. It contains Paloma which is a Contour Blush, and I'm quite excited to see how this fairs on my skin. Next to that is Laguna which is one of the most raved about products in the blogosphere. In this palette, you receive 0.5g more than the normal sized pans so it's quite good value for the £49 I paid for this palette. However, I don't like Laguna as much as I like Casino. But with my tan gradually taking its time to fade away, this may suit me. Onto the blushes! The first on the left is Robotic which is exclusive to the palette. I'd say that this shade is pink is a bit on the warm side and is quite pale, so even though I won't use this shade as much, I would use it unlike Sex Fantasy in the Virtual Domination Palette which I'm still trying to make it work for me. Blasphemy is a gorgeous pink blush that's slightly mauve-y and I'll know that I will get some use out of this colour. Luster is an orange-y brown blush that's more on the brown side.  This is a blush that would look amazing on nearly all skintones. Finally Dolce Vita is the blush that I was most excited about. I wanted to buy the singular size of this but didn't want to spend about £23 on just a blush, so I thought that this way it would be more cost effective as I rarely, if ever, hit pan on blushes. Dolce Vita is a mauve-y dusty rose colour. I can see this colour quickly becoming one of my favourites!

The second item I purchased was the A Woman's Face Neutral Lip SetIt included a lipstick in  Dolce Vita but it was too sheer for my liking so I'm selling it unfortunately. The set also included a mini Dolce Vita Velvet Matte Lip Pencil.  This contains 1.8g of product, whereas a normal size contains 2.4g, so this mini contains quite a lot of product. Unlike the lipstick, the velvet matte lip pencil suits me and is a 'my lips but better' shade. I don't like how you can't twist the product up but instead have to sharpen it. The last item in this set was a Velvet Lip liner in Patong Beach. This colour is so flattering on my skintone and I'm so glad I picked this set up, as usually it's quite hard for me to find nude lip colours that work for me.

I think, if it's still in stock in November/December, then I may pick myself up the Despair Palette aswell, as all the blush shades appeal to me and I wouldn't mind another baby Ita Kabuki brush.

What did you pick up from this collection?

  4. I really want this palette because the Virtual Domination palette is easily one of the best makeup products I own, and this looks stunning. But the packaging freaks me out. LOL!
