My Favorite NARS Products

I am a big fan of drugstore beauty products. My L’Oréal mascara will always be a front runner and I am obsessed with the NYX Cosmetics brow gel. Both great products under $10. It’s amazing. While the majority of my makeup bag consists of drugstore finds, there are a few name brand items I can’t live without – and they all happen to be NARS.

I don’t really understand the women who spend $75 on foundation but I will pretty much give NARS all of my money when it comes to a handful of products. This is probably the only brand that I really covet and I’ve been a fan of them for years. The cost isn’t to crazy and the quality is just unbeatable. And before ya ask, this isn’t a sponsored post. Not that I would overly promote a brand just for the money but I gotta tell ya, I truly do love NARS so I decided to dedicate an entire post to some of my favorite products. If you’re going to make the mini splurge, you might as well make sure it’s on the best of the best #amiright?

my nars must haves

  • Bronzing Powder: I typically buy the bronzing powder (shade Laguna) in pairs of two so I never run out. I love the warm, matte finish this powder gives me and on most days, I just wear this with a little bit of mascara. Easy – and I always look a little sunkissed. That’s my kind of combo.
  • Radiant Creamy Concealer: if you are looking for a lightweight concealer that still offers some great coverage, this is going to be your new best friend. I love applying this after a long night or even as a highlighter under my foundation! (i wear the shade Vanilla)
  • Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer: This is the one thing I use pretty much every day. I don’t really wear foundation so this tinted moisturizer is the perfect product if you’re looking for a little color and smoothness without the heaviness of a foundation. I apply a few dabs with a brush and then top it off with bronzer or peachy blush for a casual look.
  • Highlighting Powder: I’m not much of a blush wearer but this highlighting powder in the shade Maldives has been my go to for when I need a little color on my cheeks.
  • Sheer Glow Foundation: I have to admit, I don’t wear this foundation as much as the other products mentioned above. However, if I am going glam or have a big shoot, I’ll apply a layer of this lightweight foundation (shade Barcelona) and it is the perfect amount of coverage without being overpowering or cakey.
