As I mentioned in my Valentine's Day Haul, I had a third parcel arrive yesterday but I wasn't home to accept it. Anyway, the parcel pick up slip was left behind and I picked it up this morning. I'm waiting on a NARS order and an Urban Decay one so I didn't know which it would be which was pretty exciting.

This NARS order was placed through KissAndMakeUpNY (I'll be doing a full review of their site soon, so stay tuned). I've only included photos of the packaging in this post as I plan on doing an in depth review of each product soon.
NARS Sheer Glow foundation in Mont Blanc
The first product I ordered was the NARS Sheer Glow foundation in Mont Blanc. If you've been following this blog that, while I loved the actual NARS Sheer Glow foundation, I had a lot of trouble finding consistency when it came to being colour matched. Don't know what I'm talking about? Click here

The NARS website describes Mont Blanc, their second lightest shade, as being 'light with pink undertone'.
NARS Blush in Orgasm
The second product I ordered was NARS' powder blush in Orgasm. The last time I was at Mecca Cosmetica the make up artist applied this blush after colour matching me. This blush is constantly talked about on YouTube and, to be honest, I thought it was totally overrated. I was so wrong. As soon as the blush was put on me I knew I had to have it! 

The NARS website describes their Orgasm powder blush as being 'peachy pink with golden shimmer'.
NARS foundation pump
I also ordered a foundation pump for my Sheer Glow foundation. I know myself well enough to know that me and 'pour tops' just don't work. I wouldn't really mind spilling a cheap foundation but NARS isn't cheap! It will also help me access the right amount of product every time. 

My whole NARS order from KissAndMakeUpNY came to $83.95. The total can be divided as follows - 

  • $42.00 - Sheer Glow Foundation
  • $26.00 - Orgasm powder blush
  • $6.00 - Liquid Foundation Pump
  • $9.95 - Flat Rate Shipping
I will definitely be placing another KissAndMakeUpNY order very soon as I was very impressed with their prices, customer service and speed of shipping/arrival (as I said, stay tuned for the online store review).

**According to my research, NARS does not test on animals

    1. Hi, Rebecca! I absolutely love this site. I didn't order much this time 'cos I was on the poor side (what am I saying? I still am!) and I just wanted the foundation ASAP but I have another massive shopping list/order which I'll probably put through next week.

  5. Hello there! Quick question that's totally off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My website looks weird when browsing from my iphone4. I'm trying to
    find a template or plugin that might be able to resolve this issue.

    If you have any recommendations, please share.
    Many thanks!
