Ladies, do ya ever go through makeup phases? Right now I’m having a serious NARS moment!
It’s like I physically can’t stop myself from reaching for Supervixen lip gloss, The Multiple Orgasm (ha!) and the Modern Love palette every morning. Call me crazy, but I’ve been hearting all three so much I might as well attach ‘em to my body.
I guess that it’s no surprise today’s sesh of WHAT WOULD YOU GET, which features new limited edition NARS items, killed me a little softly. It was so hard to decide!
WHAT WOULD YOU GET works like this — you check out the pictures, read through the product descriptions and then tell me in the comments what you’d like to take home for your virtual haul.
Option one: a smokin’ hawt set of vintage NARS nail polishes
To celebrate their 15th anniversary this year, NARS recently resurrected five old school NARS Nail Polish favorites ($16 each).
- Cha Cha: a semi-sheer tangerine with golden shimmer
- Hunger: a creamy orangey red
- Zizi: a clear peach with golden glitter
- Tallulah: a creamy dark plum
- Blue Lagoon: a shimmery powder blue
Isn’t that purple to die for?
NARS nail polishes are thin and apply with rich, non-streaky color. The polish resists chipping well and lasts a long time, too.
Option two: The NARS Loves San Francisco Set
NARS plus my favorite city (*please* don’t call it Frisco) equals makeup nirvana. This extremely limited edition set features four previously released NARS products re-christened with names inspired by San Francisco ($75).
- Angel Island Single Eye Shadow: a sparkly lavender
- Golden Gate Bridge Highlighter/Cheek Color: a bright, yellowish gold
- Haight Ashbury Eye Shadow Duo: a light matte gray and a shimmery pale green
- Alamo Nail Polish: a shimmery, bronzey cream
This set is exclusive to the Nordstrom San Francisco store, but that doesn’t mean you have to live in the YAY Area to buy it. Just call the NARS counter at the SF Nordie’s to purchase it over the phone with a credit card, and they’ll ship it out to you for a fee. Here’s the number: (415) 243-8500.
For Bay Area MBB readers: There’s a huge NARS event at the SF Nordstrom in Union Square this Saturday, June 6.
Francois Nars, makeup artist and creator of the NARS line, will appear for a meet and greet. The NARS makeup team will also be there to do makeovers, too.
To meet Francois, you have to purchase either the NARS Loves San Francisco Set or Francois Nars’ beauty book, Makeup Your Mind ($40), beforehand. I purchased my book today by calling the NARS counter at (415) 243-8500 and pre-ordering it with a credit card.
And now for the hard part — do you go with option one (the set of polishes) or option two (the NARS Loves SF Set)?
