When it comes to high end beauty brands, NARS is definitely up there with my favourites. I'm obsessed with their Sheer Glow foundation, Laguna bronzer and lip pencils - all must haves in my makeup bag. With this being said, I was excited to recently be given the chance to try a few more products from their range. I was very kindly sent their high reflecting setting powder and two of their multiples. I'd heard so many good things about all of these products so was excited to give them a try. I've been using them for a while now so it's time to share my thoughts!
First up is the Light Reflecting Loose Setting Powder and this is a really lovely product. Whenever I do my makeup, setting my foundation with powder is an essential part of my routine. I have combination skin so if I don't set my foundation, my t-zone tends to get a bit shiny during the day and makeup literally melts off my face. Not a cute look. The powder is translucent so it won't provide the skin with any colour so if you like your skin to look the same colour as it does when you've just applied your foundation, this won't effect that.
It's a really fine powder that blends into the skin with total ease and I feel it really smooths the skin out and creates a flawless finish. I tend to use this all over my face to set my base but I know a lot of people use it just underneath their eyes as the light reflecting properties do really brighten the face. The only down side with this product is the packaging - I'm not the biggest fan of loose powders just because they're so messy! Whenever I use this product, it goes everywhere! I find my brush picks up way too much product and then when I tap it off, there's white powder everywhere. Overall I'd say it's a fantastic product that does exactly what you'd expect it to do but you do have to be patient with it due to the packaging and it's not something I'd use every day due to this inconvenience.
Next up is The Multiples and I have two shades - G-spot and South Beach. The multiples would probably be one of NARS most popular products - especially the shade 'Copacabana' which is a gorgeous champagne highlight and one that I definitely need to try at some point. I think the reason they're such a poplar product is because of their convenience. As they're a stick, you can literally just swipe it on the cheeks straight from the packaging and then blend with your fingers or a brush. These two shades are absolutely gorgeous - G-Spot (not sure about the name of this one haha!) is a beautiful dusky Pink shade with a matte finish and South Beach is a bronze shade and this one has a gorgeous metallic finish. I'd say G-Spot is a perfect Winter blush shade and South Beach is amazing for Summer to enhance a natural tan. I also think that shade is perfect to use on the collar bone and down the shins etc to give the skin a gorgeous glow.
