The Nars Duo

Am I the only one who thinks Nars related blog posts should come with a warning? You can be sure that after I read any post containing the word Nars – a purchase will be made. After a peruse of Alix’s blog a few weeks back I decided that the Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer and Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturiser had to make their way off my shopping list and into my stash.

The concealer reminds me of a more luxury version of the Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer, but without the caky-ness and a slightly more illuminating finish. I use the shade Custard (Yes, I was overjoyed that I wasn’t matched to Vanilla – the shade that is forever out of stock)  and it works brilliantly on both under eye circles and blemishes and stays put rather well throughout the day. Safe to say it’s a goodie and is now in regular rotation in my makeup stash, but the real stand out – the tinted moisturiser.

It gives a beautiful luminous and almost satin finish, with just enough coverage to get me by on an okay skin day. The shade range is surprisingly vast for a tinted moisturiser range, with shades to match both pink and yellow skin tones. You can also apply it with fingers or a brush and the result isn’t too dissimilar (but ever so slightly more on the flawless side when using a buffing brush as you would expect).

And here’s the bit where I open up the floor to you guys. I’m feeling spendy, so make sure you list your Nars favourites in the comments! What do I NEED? I’ll be here, note pad and pen at the ready…

    Plus Nars have the best names for their shades of products!

    I am such a NARS obsessive! You may have just convinced me that I need this concealer now. Hmm, what do you need to buy? I'd say that a NARS Eyeshadow Duo is a definite MUST. I have Kalahari and honestly couldn't live without it. Sheer Glow Foundation is also my favourite foundation by them, it's so long-lasting and glowing on the skin. x

    I'd love to try out this concealer – it sounds lovely! I keep saying I'm going to try the tinted moisturiser as it gets such rave reviews but never get round to it – maybe this summer I finally will! I'm currently addicted to Nars Sheer Glow Foundation, it's the best foundation I've ever had! Will definitely be repurchasing when it runs out x

    I love this Nars concealer, everything about it is amazing, apart from the fact that it makes me break out really badly :/

    I'm still yet to try out anything by NARS, and I'm even more desperate after drooling over their products in Space NK!
    That concealer looks lovely! I think I might try a blush first, as my skin is clearing up a lot now, so concealer isn't as necessary as it used to be.
    Thanks for sharing!

    I really want to try both these items, but especially the Tinted Moisturizer. So far, from NARS, I've only tried their bronzer in Laguna and blushes in Deep Throat and Luster; but I love them all. xo

    Deep Throat or if you can get your hands on it, the limited edition Day Dream blush are amazing, oh and the Kalahari eyshadow duo! Now if only I could get my hands on the concealer..

    I keep meaning to try that concealer as i'm an avid repurchaser of the collection one but I just bulk at the price. Maybe it's about time I took the plunge!

    This seems like the best duo. I love the sound of the concealer as I use collection 200 and love it but see what you mean about it being as bit cakey. You should definitely try Nars laguna and the eye primer if you haven't already done so.

    The concealer solves all of my concealer problems. Finally something that isn’t cakey, but still has a ton of coverage.

    Nars is my favorite beauty brand I think… hmm what you need: Douceur and Deep Throat Blushes, Dragon Girl Matte Pencil, Sheer Glow Foundation, Kalahari Eyeshadow Duo, And God Created The Woman Eyeshadow Palette… hmmm I just love everything from them. Sadly, I'm Vanilla – great, but I got it on the first try this time and I'm loving it!

    I have been using the Nars tinted moisturizer in Alaska for probably a year and I don't think I will ever go back! They make the most amazing products ever. I started using that same concealer as well and it is amazing. I also added the Laguna powder bronzer to my routine (oops) and it leaves the most incredible and long lasting glowing complexion! Laguna is really something amazing if you're into bronzers, it isn't sparkly like I expected but has a subtle sheen that just illuminates the face. I love their blushes but have found dupes that work just as well for much cheaper (NYX in Pinched), but when it comes to the face I don't think they can be beat! For a while I had the Multiple in Orgasm and it was a really amazing product, I used it constantly, but I feel that for the cost vs length of wear time it wasn't quite worth it.. but if money isn't a concern it's an amazing product. Ahhh I'd just wear Nars everything if I could <3

    I had a stroke of madness at a nars counter last weekend. I brought the concealer, its amazing, not cakey, great coverage and brightening. I brought another velvet matte lip pencil, in Bettina, perfect nude shade.I also swooned over a blush called Love, and did not buy it at first, then fell in love as it was beautiful and brighten my face. So I had to go back to selfridges as I could not find it at any other department stores, I think it was an exclusive for them. x

    YES, NARS-related products should come with a warning … hahaha. Everyone has seriously been talking about this concealer! I don't normally use concealer, but I really need to check this out … if everyone is loving it, then I'm sure to!

    loveee both of these products, i end up using them pretty much daily! I'd really recommend nars eyeshadows, i have a couple palettes and the texture and pigmentation is ridiculously amazing, loving the look of the brousse duo at the moment, or the god created the woman palette is heavenly x
