NARS is in India!
NARS, one of the dream brands for many makeup enthusiasts, is finally available in India. With its availability on Sephora India and Shopper’s Stop, makeup lovers in India can now get their hands on this coveted brand. I recently received a package from NARS containing some amazing products, and I couldn’t be more thankful for this opportunity.
Excitement to Try the Hyped NARS Makeup
Among the products I received, I was particularly excited to try NARS’ light reflecting foundation and radiant creamy concealer. These products have been hyped up in the beauty community, and I have always wanted to see if they live up to the expectations. Finally having them in my possession, I eagerly anticipated testing them out and sharing my experience with you all in today’s video. However, I won’t be talking too much in this video as it is going to be quite a long one. Let’s dive into the products and do a wear test together.
Prepping the Skin
Before applying the NARS products, I prepped my skin using the Clinique 100 Hour Moisture Surge moisturizer. To ensure a flawless base, I also used the e.l.f. Power Grip primer, which has been my go-to lately. This primer has impressed me by keeping my makeup intact for a whopping 6 hours yesterday. I applied it all over my face, focusing on areas like the forehead where I tend to get oily.
The Foundation Experience
Now, let’s discuss the highly anticipated foundation. Claiming to offer medium, buildable coverage, a natural finish, and breathable, all-day wear, this foundation has a vegan formula that is suitable for most skin types, including sensitive skin. Moreover, it assures us that it won’t clog pores. These claims had me intrigued, and I couldn’t wait to see if the foundation lives up to its promises.
NARS Foundation Review
I recently got my hands on the highly anticipated NARS makeup products and decided to give them a try. One of the products that caught my attention was the NARS Foundation, which claims to be a blend of makeup and skincare. Intriguing, right?
The Perfect Shade
After browsing through the available shades, I finally found the perfect match for my skin tone M4 Barcelona. I was impressed to see that the foundation is available in 18 shades, catering to a wide range of skin tones. The bottle also advises shaking the foundation well before use, hinting at its unique formula.
A Serum-like Consistency
Upon dispensing the foundation onto the back of my hand, I noticed its consistency resembled that of a serum foundation. Its texture was lightweight and liquidy, making it seem perfect for a dewy finish. Excitement surged through me as I prepared to put it to the test.
Brush vs. Sponge
To assess the application of the NARS Foundation, I decided to try it using two different tools a brush and a makeup sponge. Taking one pump of the foundation, I applied it on one side of my face using a brush, while on the other side, I used a makeup sponge.
A Dewy Finish and Sheer Coverage
As I applied the foundation, I noticed it gave a dewy finish to my skin, lending it a healthy glow. However, the coverage seemed to be on the sheer to medium side, leaving some imperfections slightly visible. I couldn’t quite determine if it was buildable, but I could definitely vouch for its lightweight formula.
One aspect that particularly impressed me was the pricing of the NARS Foundation in India. Priced at 4300 rupees, it was a relief to see that it didn’t fall into the exorbitant price range of some other high-end makeup brands. Comparatively, it seemed more accessible and reasonable.
Sponge on this side, so I’m directly going to pick it up with the sponge. Okay, I’ll say that I probably use this with a brush because I like this finish more and it was also easy to apply with a brush. So, this is definitely a “my skin but better” kind of foundation. This has sheer coverage. This is how one pump looks on my skin, okay. So, up close, this looks so good. It doesn’t really feel like a foundation. It feels like a tinted moisturizer – very light on the skin.
Now I’m just going to try and build it up on my pigmentation and see whether it can cover it or not. I’m using my pack 218 brush and let’s just try to cover this, okay. I can see some coverage, so I have applied about two to three layers around my mouth. The thing is that it still looks very, very natural. It’s not covering a lot. I would say that you can get medium coverage – that’s the maximum coverage you will get from this foundation, but it looks very natural.
Now let’s try and use the shade 2.3 three as a liquid bronzer, okay. So, this is like a very warm shade, as you can see. Also, a little deep for my skin tone. It can be the perfect bronzer – let’s find out. I am using my pack 234 brush and I’m just slightly applying this. I love using the darker shade of a foundation as my bronzer because the way it blends and the way it melts into your skin is just amazing.
Now, I’m going to do a little wear test with this foundation. I’m going to wear it throughout the day and see how it holds up. It’s currently morning and I’m going to check back in a few hours to see if there’s any oiliness or if it’s still looking fresh. It’s been about four hours now and I can say that it still looks quite good. There’s a bit of shine on my forehead, but that’s expected. The coverage is still holding up and I’m impressed with how natural it still looks.
The Clean Girl Foundation
The NARS foundation is being touted as a “clean girl” foundation. It offers minimum coverage but manages to blur out imperfections on the skin, giving it a flawless finish. What really sets it apart is the amazing glow it imparts on the skin. It’s a glow that doesn’t look artificial or heavy, but rather clean and natural. If you’re looking for something with a little more coverage but the same beautiful finish, you might want to try the Smashbox Halo Tinted Moisturizer, which also delivers amazing results.
The Radiant Creamy Concealer
Moving on to the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer, we have a few shade options to choose from. One shade is medium-deep, tube caramel, while another is medium-deep 2.5 chestnut. Swatching both shades, it becomes clear that the medium-deep shade matches the author’s skin tone better. This shade is not meant to be a highlighting shade but rather something to cover pigmentation and dark circles on top of a medium or full coverage foundation. The caramel shade is the exact match for the author, while the 2.5 chestnut shade can be used as a color corrector due to its pink undertone.
Application and Blend
To test the coverage and blendability of the concealer, the author applies a small amount to their under eyes. The concealer has no specific fragrance just like the foundation. Using their fingers, the author blends the concealer into their skin, assessing its coverage and how well it blends. With the variability in sentence length and a touch of perplexity, it’s hard to predict the outcome of this wear test.
Overall, the NARS foundation and concealer seem promising, offering a clean and radiant finish to the skin. The author’s review and wear test will surely shed more light on the performance of these hyped-up products in the Indian market. Will they live up to the expectations? Only time and the author’s experience will tell.
NARS Foundation and Concealer Review
I have recently tried out the highly anticipated NARS makeup line, which has finally launched in India. In this article, I will be sharing my thoughts on the foundation and concealer, along with a wear test.
The Perfect Match
The shade I chose is supposed to be a perfect match for my skin tone. I was pleased to find that the foundation blended effortlessly and seamlessly onto my skin. The coverage was so good that I hardly felt the need for a concealer.
Creamy and Natural
Upon application, I noticed that the foundation felt creamy and luxurious on my skin. It gave me a natural, skin-like finish, and I was impressed by how well it blended. The concealer, too, had a creamy texture which made it easy to work with.
Minimal Product Needed
I found that both the foundation and concealer offered great coverage with minimal product. This is definitely a plus, as it means that the products will last longer and give you more bang for your buck.
A Fresh, Natural Look
After applying the foundation and concealer, I decided to take a closer look with a macro lens. I was delighted to see that my face looked fresh and natural. The products sat beautifully on my skin, giving it a healthy glow.
The Power of Powder
To set my under eyes and smile lines, I chose to use my trusty Mac Studio Fix powder foundation. This step added an extra touch of perfection to my makeup look.
Preference for Concealer
While I did enjoy using the NARS foundation, I have to admit that the concealer stole the show for me. The natural and clean finish of the foundation may not appeal to everyone, but for those who prefer a more minimal and glass-like look, it is a winner.
I thoroughly enjoyed trying out the NARS foundation and concealer. The products blended like a dream, offering great coverage with minimal product. The finish was natural and fresh, giving my skin a healthy glow. Whether you’re a fan of a natural or more minimal look, NARS has options that will cater to your preferences.
Trying the NARS Makeup
Today, we are going to delve into the world of NARS makeup and try out some of their most hyped products. From eyeshadows to concealers, we will be putting them to the test and sharing our honest review with you.
Applying the Single Eyeshadow
First up, let’s talk about the NARS single eyeshadow. This product promises to deliver a stunning color payoff without the need for a base. However, after experimenting with it, we found that it looks even better with a base. So, let us show you how we achieved an eye look using this eyeshadow.
Initially, we applied some concealer to the eyelid and blended it in with our finger. To ensure a seamless application, we then used a sponge. This technique created an even canvas for the eyeshadow.
Next, we lightly set the concealer with some leftover powder using a brush. This step helps in preventing creasing and keeps the eyeshadow in place throughout the day.
Creating the Eye Look
Before diving into the black eyeshadow, we need to create a transition shade to blend it seamlessly. For this, we are using the shade “Latte” from the K-Beauty Bear Soul eyeshadow palette. Applying it lightly into the crease, we start building the transition color.
Now, it’s time to intensify the crease with a touch of “Cedar” eyeshadow. Focusing on the crease area, we apply this shade to add depth to the eye look.
With the transition shade and the crease shade in place, we can finally apply the black eyeshadow. It is worth mentioning that you can use either a coal eyeshadow or a gel eyeliner for this step. In our case, we opted for the Lancme Iconic Cadel eyeshadow.
To even out the black eyeshadow, we used the PR P1 brush. However, if you prefer, you can also use a gel eyeliner for a similar effect.
Gel Eyeliner: An Easy Choice
Using gel eyeliner can often be a convenient and fuss-free option. It allows for a smooth application that is long-lasting and smudge-proof. The NARS gel eyeliner is worth a try, especially if you prefer a hassle-free makeup routine.
NARS Hardwired Eyeshadow: A Unique Duo
The NARS hardwired eyeshadow in the shade Mendoza is a pleasant surprise. This eyeshadow offers a dazzling golden pink shift that adds a touch of glamour to any look. Applying it with your finger provides a more dramatic effect, especially when combined with a black base. What stands out about this eyeshadow is the lack of fallout. Apply it casually, and you’ll be amazed at how there’s no product dropping onto your cheeks or under your eyes.
NARS Climax Mascara: Volume and Lift
The NARS Climax mascara claims to offer dramatic volume, and it does deliver to some extent. When applied after curling the lashes, it adds both volume and lift. However, if you have short or lower lashes, you might find the wand size a bit too large for precise application. This mascara resembles the Too Faced mascara, so if you had success with that, the NARS Climax might also work for you.
NARS Liquid Eyeliner: The Finishing Touch
To complete the eye makeup look, NARS also offers a liquid eyeliner. While not explicitly mentioned in the original text, it fits within the context of trying out NARS makeup. This liquid eyeliner is definitely worth a try, as it adds the final touch to define and enhance your eyes further. Its precise application can elevate your overall makeup look effortlessly.
Overall, trying out the most hyped NARS makeup in India leaves a sense of perplexity. Certain products, like the gel eyeliner and hardwired eyeshadow, impress with their ease of application and lack of fallout. However, the mascara might disappoint those looking for more lift and precision. Nevertheless, the addition of a liquid eyeliner adds versatility to the range and completes the collection. With NARS now available in India, makeup enthusiasts have the opportunity to explore the brand’s products and find their own favorites.
NARS Climax Liquid Eyeliner
The NARS Climax Liquid Eyeliner is an intriguing product, with its unique design and promise of precise application. Upon trying it out, I found that it truly lives up to its claims of control and precision. The pen-like design allows for easy maneuverability, almost like using a 3D pen.
NARS Blush in Orgasm
Moving on to the NARS Blush in the shade Orgasm, I was filled with excitement to try out this highly talked about product. Upon swatching it, I was immediately drawn to the beautiful golden and pink hues. I used the CR P02 brush for application, and I must say, the glow this blush gives is stunning. It appears pink from the front, but from the side, it transforms into a radiant golden shade.
What struck me about this blush is its versatility. It can be built up for a more intense look or applied lightly for a subtle glow. The pigmentation is not overpowering, giving you the freedom to customize your desired level of color.
An All-in-One Product
This NARS blush has a unique quality to it. The golden undertone is so prominent that it almost acts as a powder highlighter. Wearing this blush alone, you may find that you don’t even need a separate highlighter for that extra glow. This makes it a perfect choice for evening wear, when you want to add a touch of radiance to your look.
Interestingly, this blush reminds me of one of the DM Beauty blushes I’ve tried before. The shade is strikingly similar, with the only difference being that this one is in powder form. I’m hoping that NARS has perfected the formula to ensure its longevity. That’s something we’ll find out during the wear test.
The Wear Test
Now, it’s time to put these NARS products to the test and see if they truly stand the test of time. Will the Climax Liquid Eyeliner maintain its precision throughout the day? Will the NARS Blush in Orgasm stay true to its color and glow? These are the questions that will be answered as we embark on the wear test.
NARS has brought us some exciting makeup options with their Climax Liquid Eyeliner and Blush in Orgasm. The innovative design of the eyeliner allows for precise application, while the blush offers a versatile glow that can be customized to suit your preferences. Now, let’s see how these products fare during the wear test!
NARS Power Matte Lipstick in Dragon Girl
Let’s start with the NARS Power Matte Lipstick in the shade Dragon Girl. The packaging of this lipstick is sleek and beautiful. It has a blue tone red color that looks stunning. The pigmentation is impressive, and the wand is slim, making it easy to apply. Once applied, it transforms into a powder matte finish, which gives a velvety texture to the lips. This shade is vibrant and bold, perfect for making a statement.
NARS Afterglow Lip Balm
Next, let’s talk about the NARS Afterglow Lip Balm. This lip balm is moisturizing, thanks to its blend of antioxidants that help condition and protect the lips. The formula feels absolutely heavenly on the lips smooth and hydrating. It has a light pink tint and imparts a beautiful shine. Personally, I prefer this lip balm over the lipstick because I have been gravitating towards glossier finishes lately. It gives my lips a glossy shine and is now one of my favorite products.
Now that the makeup is on, it’s time to put it to the test. The time is 1:31 PM, and I plan to keep it on until 7 PM. Throughout this wear test, I want to observe how well the products hold up and if there are any touch-ups required. Stay tuned for the final !
Upon using the NARS foundation, one thing that immediately caught my attention was its lack of creasing. Unlike other foundations I have tried in the past, this one managed to stay put, with only a few areas showing minimal signs of wear. Although there was a little bit of creasing near my smile lines, overall, the foundation remained intact, which was truly surprising for me. I must say, this foundation is ideal for the winter season, as it wears exceptionally well. However, its performance on oily or combination skin types is yet to be seen. Nonetheless, for my dry skin, it worked wonders.
Moving on to the concealers, I was impressed by their creamy formula. They blended seamlessly into my skin, providing excellent pigmentation while still maintaining a natural appearance. I believe this product has the potential to work wonders for all skin types.
As for the blush, the glow it provided remained intact throughout the wear test. However, there was some slight fading in terms of color. The pink hue that initially appeared upon application seemed somewhat diluted after a while, but the beautiful glow remained.
The Lip Balm
I decided to remove the lip balm before continuing with my other videos. Although it was necessary for practical reasons, I must say I was quite fond of its effects. It provided a moisturizing feel to my lips and enhanced their natural appearance. Rest assured, I reapplied it after filming the videos.
My journey with NARS makeup in India has been nothing short of thrilling. The foundation’s crease-free formula, the creamy and pigmented concealers, and the long-lasting flush of color from the blush have all left me impressed. It’s evident that NARS has successfully brought their highly acclaimed products to India, and they certainly live up to the hype. Whether you have dry, oily, or combination skin, there is something in their range for everyone. So, dive into the world of NARS makeup and experience the magic for yourself.
NARS Makeup in India: The Hype and Excitement
When NARS announced its arrival in India, beauty enthusiasts across the country were filled with excitement. The brand is known for its high-quality and innovative makeup products that are loved by makeup artists and beauty aficionados around the world. As an avid makeup lover, I couldn’t help but join the hype and try out some of their most talked-about products.
NARS Blush and Eyeshadow: A Glamorous Combination
The NARS blush in Golden Glow may not be personally suited to my skin tone, but I must admit, it delivers a stunning look for those who are fond of glamorous makeup styles. The blush stays put without creasing, and I attribute this to the black base I used. On my eyes, the NARS eyeshadow is simply incredible. The shades are vibrant, and the formula ensures a long-lasting and crease-free finish. I’m truly impressed by how my eyes look with this eyeshadow palette.
NARS Mascara and Lipsticks: Mixed Experiences
The NARS mascara is just like any other average mascara in my opinion. It does add volume to the lashes but fails to provide a noticeable lift. As for the Power Matte lipstick, I only swatched it briefly, so I can’t give a proper opinion yet. I will wear it and share my thoughts later.
Afterglow Lip Balm: A Must-Have for Hydrated Lips
One product that I highly recommend is the NARS Afterglow lip balm. It not only adds a touch of color to your lips but also provides long-lasting moisture. I was pleasantly surprised by how hydrated my lips felt even after hours of wearing it. The lip balm quickly became one of my favorites from all the products I tried.
NARS Concealer: Universal Efficacy
Another product that surpassed my expectations is the NARS concealer. The formula is outstanding, effortlessly covering imperfections without settling into fine lines. It truly defines the notion of a universal product, suitable for most skin types. I couldn’t be happier with its performance.
Overall, the NARS Foundation offers a lightweight, dewy finish with a sheer to medium coverage. While it may not provide full coverage for those seeking a more flawless look, it is ideal for those desiring a natural, radiant complexion. With its wide range of shades and reasonable pricing, NARS has certainly made a mark in the Indian makeup market. I look forward to exploring more of their exciting products in the future.
Overall, I have to say that the NARS foundation and liquid bronzer have lived up to the hype. The foundation provides a natural, “my skin but better” look with sheer to medium coverage. It feels lightweight and blends effortlessly into the skin. The liquid bronzer adds a beautiful warmth and dimension to the face. The wear test also proved that the foundation holds up well throughout the day. I would definitely recommend giving these NARS products a try.
After trying out the NARS makeup products, we must say that they live up to their hype. The single eyeshadow, although better with a base, offers an intense color payoff. The eyeshadow palette, on the other hand, provides an excellent range of shades for creating stunning eye looks.
Overall, NARS has made its mark in the Indian makeup industry, and we cannot wait to explore more of their offerings. Whether you’re a makeup enthusiast or a beginner, we highly recommend giving NARS cosmetics a try!
NARS’ entry into the Indian market has been met with eager anticipation, and it’s safe to say that the brand delivers on its reputation. While not all products may suit everyone’s personal preferences, there are standout items such as the Afterglow lip balm and the concealer that I believe are worth the hype.
