Sometime during last week when I was stressing about finishing my assignment I found myself on ASOS and conveniently they had up to 30% off on beauty products. Feeling in the mood to treat myself I purchased two items from NARS which I have been longing to try.
The main reason I actually went ahead with the purchase is because the Radiant Creamy Concealer was in stock and had 10% off. I have heard SO much about this product and apparently it's usually quite difficult to find in my shade 'Vanilla' due to the popularity. I colour-matched myself by googling swatches and reading descriptions and though I would usually be afraid of getting make up online I was pretty sure it would be fine plus I believe you can return unused products on ASOS. The shade 'Vanilla' turned out the be perfect for me, it's a fair colour with slight pinky tones and just a touch lighter than my skin tone. I've used this concealer a couple of times now and I completely understand the hype around it. It glides on so nicely and feels really light and creamy (as the name suggests) yet gives a great amount of coverage and is the best I've used for dark circles under my eyes so far. I think that pairing this with the Bobbi Brown Corrector would be the perfect under-eye combination meaning I'm super tempted to repurchase that as I've run out. Though I haven't been using this product for long, I would recommend it to anyone wanting to try it.
The other item I got is one of the Dual Intensity Eyeshadows which I haven't heard as much about but I'd seen them before and thought they were so beautiful. It was a very hard decision picking which one but I chose the shade 'Dione' which is a bronze champagne colour as I thought it would be nice for an everyday make up look. The idea of these eyeshadows is that they can be applied either wet or dry depending on how intense you'd like the colour to be. When applied dry with a flat eyeshadow brush this shade is literally only a wash of colour which isn't enough for me, however when I use my finger I achieve a much better colour payoff. When applied with a damp brush you get a great amount of colour and I love the metallic finish which isn't too intense for daytime. Overall I really like this eyeshadow but I'm unsure yet as to whether it is worth the money as I feel some of my other eyeshadows are a lot better quality and nicer to apply.
I'd definitely order make up from ASOS again as their delivery always comes on time and it's free when you spend over £20, plus they also gave me a little sample of Hawaiian Tropic sun lotion with this order which was sweet! I also really want to try more NARS products (I've only used the blushers & bronzer previously) so if you have any recommendations please tell me as I'd love to know. I hope you all have a lovely week and thank you for reading!
