I can’t even begin to explain how many countless hours I have spent reading through NARS product reviews, and daydreaming of my first NARS purchase. This is quite typical of me, as I’m in no way an impulse buyer, and usually put a good deal of thought and research into products before the big purchase. It’s quite a good thing really, as it means I’m not reckless in my spending habits. However, the downside is that I become unreasonably obsessive about certain things until I finally just get up the nerve to go ahead and buy them.
So a few days ago all of my NARS related obsessing ended when I took a day trip to Toronto with some friends to see a Jays game, and to shop. Now, it may come as a huge shock to some of you, but we actually left the baseball game early in order to squeeze in some extra shopping. I know, I know, favour shopping over sports? Who would have thought. As I mentioned already, I’d been planning for a long time what NARS products I would buy, so when I finally got to Sephora it didn’t take me long to make my purchase.
I bought NARS Sheer Glow (how original) in the shade Deauville. The specialist there helped me pick out the colour, and it’s a perfect match for me! I was a little nervous about choosing a colour, because I’ve been matched to the wrong foundation shade before and I really didn’t want to spend a whole lot of money on a foundation in the wrong colour. But luckily it all ended well.
I also picked up a bronzer in Laguna. And I’ve got to admit, I feel like such a beauty conformist, as both the NARS Sheer Glow and the Laguna bronzer seem to be in the makeup bag of every beauty blogger. But, when I hear about must-have products, I usually can’t stay away for long!
It turned out to be my lucky day, because they were giving away a free gift with every NARS purchase, which was a mini lipgloss in the colour Gold Digger.
Reviews of these products will be along in the next few weeks once I’ve given them a good try. So make sure to keep an eye out!
