NARS & MAC Canada Haul
Having tried the NARS blushes and eyeliner which I picked up from Sephora Paris, I was hooked. I have been dying to try more NARS products but unfortunately they are not available in Singapore. So when I heard that a good friend of mine is going to Vancouver, I had to give her a shopping list! I remembered from eons ago that MAC was also cheaper from Canada since that’s where it originates, though it’s no longer the case! The prices are comparable to that of Singapore. I don’t usually like troubling people with shopping lists, but I just couldn’t resist!
Here’s the list I gave her:
- NARS The Multiple – Orgasm
- NARS Sheer Glow Foundation – Punjab
- NARS Sea of Love Set
- TARTE Amazonian Clay – Exposed
- Cremesheen Glass – Partial to Pink
- Cremesheen Glass – Richer Lusher
- Lipstick – A Perfect Day (MAC Naturally Collection)
- Blush – Honey (MAC Naturally Collection)
- Mineralized skinfinish – Redhead (MAC Naturally Collection)
- Eyeshadow – Diamond Dove (MAC Iris Apfel Collection)
- Lipstick – Flamingo & Party (MAC Iris Apfel Collection)
- Beauty Powder (MAC Iris Apfel Collection)
- Nail Lacquer – Sandpiper (MAC Iris Apfel Collection)
Of the entire list of 13 products, she only managed to get 4 items. The rest were either out of stock or unavailable!
I was so happy that she managed to get the NARS Sheer Glow Foundation. There has been so much rave about this foundation, I just had to try it! In fact I was happy with the 4 items she got for me – NARS Sheer Glow Foundation; NARS Multiple; 2 MAC cremesheens.
I have been using this foundation almost all of last week and I am loving it! It has got a pretty light texture which is easy to blend and gives surprisingly good coverage. I broke out slightly the first 2 days of using this. Breakouts are far and few between for me, and I’m not entirely sure if this was the cause or just dirty brushes. I washed my brushes after 2 days and all was well again. Will do a more detailed review soon.
Having used the NARS Orgasm blush, I couldn’t help but wonder what the NARS Multiple was like. I always had something for cream blushes and this was one that looked perfect for my little vanity bag, given it’s size. The color is identical to the Orgasm power blush. Beautiful coral with gold shimmers. I made a mistake the first day I used this by applying it above my loose powder and it became very patchy. Guess not every cream blush is like the MAC ones I have which can be worn on top of powder. Nonetheless, I am still loving this for the glow it leaves on the cheeks.
Eversince I tried my first MAC Cremesheen from the Daphne Guiness Collection, I fell in love with the MAC Cremesheen formula. Was never a fan of MAC lip glasses due to their over stickiness but the cremesheens are great – good texture and pigmented! For some reason, Singapore doesn’t seem to carry MAC Cremesheens so I was really happy when my friend managed to grab both colors I requested for. I have yet to try them but they did swatch really well and looked so pretty! Cannot wait to try them out soon.
Hope you enjoyed the haul. Have you tried any of the above products? What are your thoughts?
