Last weekend my boyfriend went back to uni and my best friend of 16 years went off to start her first year at the uni of Norwich to study fine art. The two of them leaving at the same time left me feeling pretty down and lonely, so I decided to treat myself to a rather extravagant yet beautiful purchase in the hopes of cheering myself up.
I wouldn't normally spend this much on make-up and so I was expecting pretty amazing results. This NARS set comes with 3 eyeshadows, a brush and an eyeliner. The packaging is lovely and simple and makes you want to use the product, I was excited getting out each piece from it's packaging! The eyeshadows themselves are beautiful colours that can be used together or individually depending on what look you're going for. As it was the weekend when I applied this make-up, I had more time on my hands than normal and so decided to go for the full on smokey eye effect. The brush that it comes with is a lovely angled one, which is great for a large sweep application but not as good for more precise work as I thought it would be. However, the product out of this set that I was most impressed with was the eyeliner as it glided on with smooth precision and stayed put all day!
Overall I am happy with the set as I spent the whole day shopping around an absolutely packed Oxford Street and by the end of it the eyeliner and shadow were still on with minimal creasing! (Of course the colour intensity had dulled slightly, although nobody would be able to tell.) I'm looking forward to using this again to create a more neutral look for work.
Have you bought any new make-up recently that you were really impressed with?
