NARS- Hopefully Devoted

What else is there to do on a rainy Bank Holiday Monday other than shop? Decided to pick up a few NARS items, owned Orgasm blusher years ago but was not too impressed with it which is why I have not got a clue where it is now.  Heard many beauty gurus mention 'Deep throat'  blusher and when I saw it in a duo with 'Laguna' I knew it was a sign that I had to buy it.

The set called 'Hopelessly Devoted' also included two medium lipglosses in 'Orgasm' and 'Crepuscule', bought directly from it cost £39.00.

 Box came all ripped and knocked about, ok as it was for me but would have been annoyed if it had been a gift

'Deep Throat' has not let me down, it really is a gorgeous colour and  I can see myself wearing it most days. Also very pleased with 'Laguna' bronzer, it suits my colouring and does not make me look like a oompa loompa!

The lipglosses are not exactly a hit with me yet, I would never have picked up Crepuscule on its own, it comes out as more of a lip stain. Orgasm is a nice natural pink shade but again I need to pump the wand quite a few times to achieve a glossy look.  Would love to try Turkish delight but will give these shades a go first to see if I cans take to the formula.

I am having a love affair with Nars Sheer Glow, when I purchased my first bottle I was using fake tan on my body so wanted to match up my face and  went for 'punjab', as I have to buy online it was difficult to decide which shade was best for me. Punjab did the job well until I went back to my natural fairer complexion...felt like I had a white chest and tanned looking face using it so decided to order 'fiji'. It is in the 'lighter' shade range, in the bottle it does not look that much different from Punjab but when I applied it to my face I could see the difference. I know some people thing the sheer glow is too expensive, goes streaky etc but for me it is worth the price as I need so little of it and as long as I have a primer or MAC strobe cream on my face first it blends in really well and lasts all day.

I also had to try  'Penny lane' cream blush, it gives a nice flush of colour without looking too shiny..nice and natural, pink/nude shade

Would like to explore more NARS items,  but very happy with this lot for now.
