Today’s the day that NARS Cosmetics will finally be available physically in the De Bijenkorf Amsterdam and Utrecht. NARS Cosmetics offers a huge variety of different make-up products and to give you an idea, I’m going to show you the products that I own from the brand with a look using a selection of those products.
I think that NARS Cosmetics is mostly known for their face powders, like the NARS Bronzing Powder in Laguna, Blush Powder in Orgasm and of course, the Highlighter in Albatross. I love the bronzer and even though I’m not a huge fan of blushes, I think that the ones that I’ve tried look very natural and beautiful and the skin.
I own an old palette called One Night Stand, which was a limited edition holiday palette from a few years ago, which had four different blushes, the Laguna Bronzer and a Highlighter. Since it is not available anymore, I decided not too add a photo in the post but all the face products that are in that palette are absolutely gorgeous.
NARS Cosmetics also offers a big variety of lip products, with all kinds shades and finishes, like the NARS Satin Lip Pencil Rikugien and the Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Cruella. Did you also know that the Orgasm Blush shade comes in both a Lipstick and Lipgloss shade as well? The products in the picture above are all mini’s that I’ve gotten over time, but they are of course available in fullsize.
One of my favorite lip products are the NARS Audacious Lipsticks I own the shades Anita and Anna. I also reviewed the shade Anna in one of my very first posts on The Beautynerd, which you can find here.
Another favorite are the new NARS Powermatte Lip Pigments. These liquid lipsticks have an amazing formula and I can’t wait to try out more of the shades. I have reviewed the shades Get it On, Get Up Stand Up, Don’t Stop and Wild Thing, which you can find here.
NARS Cosmetics also offers a selection of basic eye make-up products like the Audacious Mascara in Black Moon and Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner in Via Veneto. Both the mascara and eyeliner come in several shades if you find black too boring.
Another gem in the NARS Cosmetics collection are the Dual-Intensity Eyeshadows. I own the shade in Callisto, which a beautiful and intensely pigmented eyeshadow. The brand offers many different single eyeshadows in many shades and finishes, also available in palettes as well.
Last but not least, you also need some tools to apply these make-up products. Of course NARS Cosmetics has got you covered! The brand offers a complete range of brushes that cover the entire face, from cheeks, brows, lips, eyes, etc. You name it, they have it! They also have some very unique and artistic brushes in their collection, like the Yachiyo Kabuki Brush in 1856.
For this look, I used the NARS Bronzer in Laguna, Blush in Orgasm and the Highlighter in Devotee on my face. For my eyes, I used the Audacious Mascara in Black Moon (I also used falsies on my top lashes), Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner in Via Veneto and the Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow in Callisto. For my lips, I used the NARS Audacious Lipstick in Anita.
As you can see, NARS Cosmetics really has everything for all kinds of make-up needs. Like I’ve mentioned in previous posts, I have loved the brand for many years have so many other things that I could tell you about even more products like the Radiant Creamy Concealer that I’ve emptied some time ago.
I can really can go on and on about the brand but I really hope that this glimpse has peeked your interest to go and visit the NARS Cosmetics booth at De Bijenkorf in Amsterdam and Utrecht. Yes, the brand is definitely pricey but for me personally, some products are worth every penny.
Not able to visit De Bijenkorf Amsterdam or Utrecht? NARS Cosmetics is also available at DeBijenkorf.nl.
