My first NARS purchases via Fragrance Direct

22 comments

NARS is a brand I have see on all forms of social media ever since I first became emerged in the world of online blogging in 2013. Sleek packaging, high quality formulations and outstanding reviews - I just had to try this brand out for myself...

NARS is a pricey brand, it's definitely one of the more high end makeup brands that's on offer. But like they say - you get what you pay for. And when you're paying for NARS makeup, you're paying for professional quality, high end makeup, which is used by both celebrities and professional makeup artists.

Fragrance Direct isn't really an online shopping destination that I would associate with purchasing makeup, but oh how wrong was I!? After browsing on their website for some Mother's Day fragrances, I stumbled across the tab for makeup and I was absolutely astonished when I saw the brands that they stock. From MAC to Estee Lauder and Calvin Klein to NARS, Fragrance Direct stock a whole host of incredible brands and this really had me taken aback! 

After mulling it over for a few hours, I finally decided that NARS was the brand I was going to try. I had heard so many good things about this brand - especially their Audacious Lipsticks and All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation; so when I saw that they stocked the exact shades I was after, I was overjoyed! 

NARS Audacious Lipstick 

NARS Audacious Lipsticks are loved by so many makeup artists and celebrities alike. A modern lipstick that glides on like butter, lasts the majority of the day with minimal touch-ups and has deep and rich pigmentation that only requires one stoke across your lips. I decided to invest in both a bubblegum pink and a deep, seductive red. A girl can never have too many lipsticks, especially when they're pink or red. I decided to get Claudia - the most gorgeous bubblegum, soft pink which suits almost any outfit imaginable. Claudia is a blue toned, soft pink which suits pale skin tones perfectly. Rita is the perfect lipstick for me - a bright red, which lasts all day long and looks sumptuous and seductive until the sun sets. 

NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation 

I'm always really dubious to order foundations online, but after reading a ton of blog reviews on the shade 'GOBI Light 3' of the NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation, I just knew it was for me. My skin tone has some yellow undertones to it, which is why this shade suits me so well as the product itself has a very cool and pale yellow hue to it. On first impressions, I found that the foundation itself was very thin, but only in consistency. It's very much a super thin liquid foundation, which is why it requires you to shake the bottle well before use. Upon application, I was really surprised. For such a thin consistency, the product itself actually has full coverage! I trialled this for the first time when my skin was incredibly blemished and I found it to work amazingly well - it covered every blemish, spot and pimple SO well, I just couldn't believe it. Probably the most pigmented foundation I have ever used, NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation suits my skin tone perfectly! I love this foundation and will definitely be purchasing again in the future. I also really like the look of their Sheer Glow Foundation - I have heard so many good things about almost all NARS products which is why it's so hard for me to decide on what to get!

NARS Contour Blush

The NARS Contour Blush in the shade Olympia is such a beautiful and super natural contour duo. I'm not really one for contouring, I find it to be time consuming and a tad pointless, but since getting this little beauty, I have definitely been converted! This contour palette is so easy and quick to use - when using this, you can achieve amazing results in seconds. Like all of the above NARS products, the pigmentation is incredible and the formulation of the product is incredible. Both powders blend really well and so easily into the foundation too. I love the natural chiselled effect that this kit helps me to achieve.

NARS Pressed Powder

Pressed Powder is something I used to use EVERYDAY when I was in my early teens until recent years when I have really avoided for some unknown reason. I think I must have just used the wrong one and it may have caused me to not want to ever use it again. But after using loose powder recently, I thought that it was time to delve back into pressed powder, hence why I have this gorgeous NARS Pressed Powder in the shade 'Flesh'. This powder doesn't look cakey nor does it clog my pores up. I really love this powder as it banishes oil without leaving my skin looking really 'made up' and unnatural. 


Since trying NARS for the very first time I am incredibly impressed. Every single item is luxurious, highly professional and achieves amazing results that last all day long. Each product is pigmented beyond our wildest dreams and totally worth every single penny! Buying from Fragrance Direct is such a breath of fresh air.

The next products on my NARS via Fragrance Direct wish-list would have to be the renowned NARS  'Super Orgasm' blush, the Satin Lip Pencil in 'YU' and the Liquid Illuminator in 'Orgasm'. What's on your NARS wish-list? Let me know in the comments below!

    1. I really want to try the Sheer Glow Foundation, what's it like!? and hmm, it's slightly dewy but not fully. When I want a dewy outcome, I tend to mix it with another foundation, usually my fave Healthy Mix by Bourjois or my MAC Face and Body foundation. Thank you so much for reading!! - Mollie xxx

  4. Fragrance Direct is a brilliant site - so many luxury brands on there! I love Nars products but will never order from Nars directly again as their customer service is awful so it's brilliant that other sites sell their products xx

  11. NARS have so many fantastic products! I've not tried their foundations yet, but I love their tinted moisturiser and concealer. The blushes are gorgeous too! So many beautiful shades. The lipsticks and lip pencils look really pretty too, but I'm allergic to ingredients in both. Xx
