Founded by makeup magnate and French artist, Francois Nars, this brand is well-loved by professional makeup artists, designers and beauty junkies alike. Francois is an innovator and creates products instinctively instead of following trends. The result: bold and sophisticated makeup and skincare that are runway to real-way ready. Infamous for provocative shade names like the best-selling blush, Orgasm, this cult brand is a staple for the fashionable set or for anyone looking to add a pop of color in her look.
I got one in the shade of Valkyrie a couple of months back. It's very soft, moisturising, and lasts long. It also has a nice berry scent to it. The only downsides I see are the price, and the fact that it crumbles a bit whenever I sharpen it.about 1 year ago
Dolce Vita is the the kind of red I dream of - a dusty hibiscus red that is subtle and sexy. The lipstick has a powdery matte feel to it. It's more of a stain on the first swipe, which you could probably build, but I really love the way the looks don't look overdone and even to an extent, natural. I use a lipbrush because I don't want to ruin the point. It's pricey which is why I don't like to use it often, but it's a joy to bust out on those special days.over 1 year ago
I first got this in a sample size, in the shade Cruella. I loved it! the shade is a prefect red. Since I have dry lips, I like how it doesn't make my lips dry even though it is matte. It's super pigmented, one swipe is enough. I'm almost done with the sample size and I am planning to buy it! Fell in love with it.almost 2 years ago
Super love this velvet matte pencil!! This is my first makeup product from Nars and I'm really impressed. I got the shade never say never, it's on the purple side and it has small specks of glitter but it's super pretty and flattering!! I just wish it was twistable because sharpening the pencil is such a waste of product and money :(about 2 years ago
Okay so I'm just going to put my foot down and say I have several of this (Thanks so much Mom!) and I am addicted to each and every one of them! Haha. I have this in Bahama, Bettina, Consuming Red, Infatuated Red, Red Square and Walkyrie. And yes, I still want more. It's sooooo addicting! *sighs* I love this because of how it's a liner and a lipstick in one (duh!). It lines my lips perfectly and fills it with a smack of color! It barely transfers once it sets to matte and lasts fort a good 8 hours on me without retouch! It is such an amazing lip pencil and definitely a must have for every girl out there!about 2 years ago
I never quite understood why this has been raved when it was released. So when my friend got me a deluxe size, I decided to try it out and see if the raves were real. True enough, I fell in love on first swipe. It's very creamy, yet matte and doesn't dry my lips. I found my perfect red in Cruella. I am not more than willing to buy more shades from this line.about 2 years ago
