6 NARS essentials your make up bag’s missing

Chances are, you’re already acquainted with {NARS} line of faaaaaabulous favourites – the bestselling {Blush}, the {Sheer Glow Foundation} (in the running for our {Haul of Fame} awards) and the one-for-all {Multiple} stick that tints, highlights and lends lids a whisper of glimmer but, these heroes are only the tip of a beautiful iceberg. Read on to discover the latest and top-rated favourites your make up bag’s missing…

Dreaming of sun-drenched skin? Get ready to bask in the glow of NARS’ {Orgasm On The Beach Cheek Palette}. A vision of six breathtaking coral, golden and bronze shades, this ‘oooooh-inducing’ sextet features a lightweight formula that builds effortlessly, revealing summer-worthy colour in its truest, most vibrant form. Team Cult Beauty can’t stop fawning over this palette. Perfection!

One of our under-the-radar obsessions, NARS’ {Oil-Infused Lip Tint} lends kisses a glistening coat of conditioning colour. Sheer and non-sticky, the silky elixir applies seamlessly to exhibit an instant ‘augmenting’ effect (the mirror-like finish makes lips appear visibly plumper), while the subtle, light-scattering particles grant a grown-up golden glimmer or chic, rose gold gleam that looks truly hypnotic and ever so sexy.

Highlight for those who don’t like their cheekbones to look intergalactic, these stunning {Highlighting Powders} are suitably subtle. “OMG I LOVE this highlight. These are not the most blinding ever but, beautifully buildable. There are six shades which suit every. single. skin tone! I use ‘Capri’ which is one of my go-tos – I wore it to college today and got no end of compliments. You also get so much product for a great price. What more could you want?” – Blondieee, Cult Beauty customer

You’ve probably spied this cult camouflage lurking in BFFs’ beauty stash but, if you’re yet to discover its brightening, blurring and pimple-disguising prowess then we’re here to convince you. The clue’s in the title: {Radiant Creamy Concealer} does just what is says on its chic see-through tube. Easy to blend this applies effortlessly to hide every boo-boo with no tell-tale trace. “I will never use another concealer again. It lasts really well, gives great coverage and is really brightening. I have fair skin with bluish dark circles and this is the only product that really makes a difference.” – Ilaria, Cult Beauty customer

Ask any beauty buff to name their favourite bronzing product and they’ll likely chant {Laguna} like their life depends upon it. The ultimate, olive-toned shade lends the most realistic, post-holiday glow but, who knew the bestselling hue came in the unmissable limited edition {Summer Solstice Cheek Duo}? Melding the industry-adored shade with a sun-washed highlighter, this two-in-one compact effortlessly delivers a warm glow without ever looking cakey or settling into fine lines.

And, what better way to finish than with their look-locking powder? Setting foundation seamlessly and controlling shine without a trace of colour, the {Light Reflecting Pressed Setting Powder} is enriched with glycerin and antioxidants to guard against dryness and keep skin comfortable all day long. Light-diffusing technology adds a flawless finish while blurring the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and pores – prepare to transform into a total NARSissist.
