My new NARS purchases - Night Series, Orgasm and Arabian Nights

Before moving to London I had only owned a single NARS item; the sheer matte foundation. I found it to be quite mediocre and NARS quickly fell to the bottom of my beauty wish list. It wasn’t until a shopping trip at Liberty in London to purchase some Laura Mercier that the NARS counter caught my eye.  A few weeks later and I now have some beautiful additions to my makeup bag.
Limited edition NARS Arabian Nights palette - £33
This is not that much different from the Night Series but its much more dazzling so I couldn’t resist. There are three shades; black with red pearls, black with purple pearls and black with gunmetal shimmer. I can’t wait to wear them on a night out!
NARS orgasm blush - £21
You’d have to be living under a rock, or perhaps have your head in a paper bag to not know what the NARS orgasm blush is. With celebrities claiming it gives their cheeks a glow and magazines naming it beauty product of the year it is no surprise that the Orgasm blush is NARS best seller. It is also no surprise that I had to have it too. But, I actually found it to be very disappointing. The blush gives a natural peachy colour and it has a slight luminosity to it, but it does nothing more then a shimmery drugstore blusher would do. I'm going to give it a few more chances because so many of my friends have recommended it. With the British sun playing hide and seek at the moment I've started to get a lovely tan (plus with the help of a personal sunbed on cloudy days!) so I'm hoping it might look better on a warmer skin tone. I will update! 
Limited edition NARS Night series – £37
I felt like the luckiest girl when this palette finally became mine. The heavily pigmented colour infused with glitter really does make the perfect shadow for your eyelids on a night out. These aren’t in trend with summers candy colours, but every girl needs some dark eye shadows to get that sexy sultry look – and darker colours always look more sophisticated! I'm not a fan of the Night Fairy shade as it's a very odd texture, but the Night Flight and Night Breed are favourites already. It has to be said that I think the shades look A LOT better when wet and it seems to hold the glitter and shimmer for much longer, but thats if you want an intense colour.
Here are the colours included in the Night Series Palette -

I suppose I can officially say I'm now another NARS addict. 
Uh Oh!

  25. Good purchases! I've been eyeing the Arabian Nights palette but not sure if it's worth it since I'm pretty sure I won't wear it much. It is really pretty to look at though!
