Let’s be honest, this haul was a long time coming. I have been lusting after a NARS purchase or two for quite a few months and I finally took the plunge. I did intend to purchase from MAC but after being ignored at their counter I went home to make an NARS order.
I needed a good foundation, a high end one at that which was actually the right shade for Casper over here. As August is my birthday month I had quite a few ‘free gift because it’s your birthday’ email offers and I’ll be honest, NARS was the best one. So they tempted me in with a freebie, a lot of places manage that…
My intention was only to get the Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Train Bleu, a gorgeous and autumnal. definitely out of my comfort zone, but when I saw shipping was around £7 I thought I might as well get my cart to £50 and get free shipping. (It’s the same old tale with beauty lovers and makeup orders.) So I added Sheer Glow foundation in Siberia and of course, with much annoyance, a pump too.
And now for the freebie, the reason I chose NARS. First is a gorgeous bag which fits the trio of products, it’s travel size and I’m definitely planning to use it. Because of this gift I got two matte lip pencils, the smaller one in Dolce Vita, a perfect nude, ready to be paired with a mini Orgasm lipgloss and finally a smudge proof eyeshadow base. Being the slightly obsessed person I am I worked out that this little kit excluding the bag is worth just over £30 which is pretty amazing and definitely worth it.
I am so excited to start using my new goodies and can you believe that Sheer Glow is my first highend foundation!?
