NARS x Sarah Moon Holiday Collection 2016Saturday, October 29, 2016
The NARS x Sarah Moon True Love Cheek and Lips Palette
This gorgeous set consists of 4 rapturous blushes and the iconic NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Mysterious Red in a full-sized packaging. I squealed the moment I saw this because unlike other blush palettes, this one by NARS contains blush shades that are REALLY different, making so much more sense, really.
Left to right : Devotee , Myth, Unwritten and Outlaw
I'm gonna try my best to describe the colors and textures to the best of my ability because clearly, descriptive words aren't my strength haha.
Devotee: A cult-favorite highlighter by the brand that was also previously included in the all-roundeD NARSissist cheeks palette . It is a slightly pink-toned highlight that is subtle, yet a little frosty. I personally didn't enjoy the frostiness too much, and wished they included Albatross instead.
Myth: Limited edition tone. This is a really gorgeous matte pale pink blush, that has almost no-color. It is amazing for make up beginners or for the no make up-makeup look. It is buttery, very blendable and has quite good color payoff considering how light the shade is
Unwritten: Another Limited edition tone found in this palette, this is a light-medium pink with slightly warmer undertones. Also a matte powder blush that was soft, easy to blend and looked really natural on the skin.
Outlaw: This was my favourite blush in the palette, because it's so so pigmented and rose gold! A medium-dark raspberry pink shade with gold shimmer, that will give off a slightly warmer complexion and that bronzey glowy look on the cheeks. This color is pretty dark and pigment, so you have to use a really light hand else you'll look like a clown.
Thank god for how blendable these are.
This Sarah Moon x NARS set is limited Edition and is only available for the holiday season. I would recommend those who are looking to increase their blush collection to get this set because the packaging is really 10/10. Sturdy, comes with a big mirror and houses different blush shades that covers all "No-make-up" to "everyday make up" to "date night make up".
NARS x Sarah Moon Gel Real Lip and Eyes set
This set is a real masterpiece. Even if you don't get it for the products, you should get it for the packaging! It is soso worthy to be sitting on every vanity ^^

In there, you'll get 2 mini-sized Audacious lipsticks (SUPER CUTE) in "Leslie" and "Bette" that are really good for handbags, and a full-sized Sarah Moon audacious mascara
Simple, fuss free and all audacious lippies + mascara fans should get this because you're getting the products you love, PLUS the amazing packaging.
Clearly, I can't get enough of the packaging haha
Last but not least, NARS Velvet Lip Glide
NARS recently launched the Velvet Lip Glides in their main collections, a liquid lipstick that glides like a gloss, is pigmented like a lipstick and sets to a semi-matte, non-drying finish.
The colors in the range are all SUPER bold and pigmented, one swipe is all it took for me to cover my entire lips with color and product. What I love about this is how even it applies, without any streakiness.
The only downside is that it doesn't last very long and it moves around a lot, like all glosses and liquid lippies that don't actually settle down matte. This can be exceptionally annoying when you're dealing with colors like bright reds and loud loud colors because it transfers everywhere, and goes out of line quite easily.
I've only tried these 2 shades, La Main Bleue (left), a rich berry shade, and Deviant (right), a burgundy/red shade. These 2 shades are perfect for the fall and end of year parties!
Hope you guys enjoy the review and I if you're interested to get hold of them, you can visit the NARS counters in Singapore like at Sephora, or Tangs.
