A brand that I love to see is NARS. I have a couple of NARS bits and bobs in my collection (1 bronzer, 2 blushes, 3 shadows, 3 glosses lol). NARS is also a brand that will feature in my wish lists.
I often see items that I think look gorgeous on various blogs and youtube videos. I don't have a NARS counter near me, so its a brand that I always seem to lust after.
I recently decided to take a bit of a gamble and pick up a few bits from ASOS as I had a voucher and a free delivery code.
My main purchase was the NARS Love Rite SS 2012 collection. A box set housing a Duo blush, 2 Lip glosses and a Orgasm Illuminator.
I wanted to try this out as you get 2 blushes in the compact, they are a good size and it allows me to try out 2 shades....bonus. You also get 2 miniature, about half size I would say of there Lip glosses in the colours Greek Holiday and Turkish Delight ( One of my all time favourites!!!)
The last thing you get is a 15ml Orgasm Illuminator. I already have this product, but its something I always use so it will come in handy through the summer.
Desire and Amour
These are both Matte blushes, they have fab colour pay off like all NARS blushes. I cant wait to try these out.
Greek Holiday is the only new item from this trio to me. I really like it. It has very delicate sparkle and will look great both on its own and layered over lipstick.
Desire, Amour, Greek Holiday and Turkish Delight.
Next I picked up a couple of Lip products.
Mexican Rose is a Item I have had my eye on for a little while. I love lip products in pencil form and it is a beautiful colour.
Barbarella was a complete impulse buy. Its a true peach lipstick, something I always seem to be looking for?!

Barbarella and Mexican Rose
Mexican Rose has stolen my heart already, I have this on my lips as I type and I'm loving it......
The last 2 items I picked up are both blushes.
The first is a item that I have been lusting after for well over a year.
Its Cactus Flower Cream Blush. The reason I have hesitated so long with this is simply my love hate relationship with cream blush. I love the idea and most often the colours, I just really struggle to apply this well to my skin without it highlighting all my pores and just looking rather naff.
I finally took the plunge tho and I'm looking forward to experimenting with it.
The last blush I picked is Torrid, a beautiful Coral with gold shimmer running through. Gorgeous for summer.
Cactus Flower and Torrid.
I think that these blushes are going to work really well layered.........
I so hope Cactus flower works for me, I'm in love with the beautiful bright coral with gold sparkles. Fingers and toes crossed, lol.
If like me, you don't have a local NARS counter you can either order direct from NARS or ASOS like I did.
What are your favourite NARS products?? Do you have any Cream blush application tips???
