NARS Summer 2011

My NARS Summer 2011 video has been up on YouTube for a week now and I have only just got around to posting it up here for you all. Shame on me! I’ll let you into a little secret: I am extremely busy at the moment, working on a new project. I think you’ll love it! But you’ll have to bear with me if my posts are a little ‘thinned out’ for a week or so. I know you’re used to me spoiling you with plenty of in-depth what-nots and long-winded anecdotes, but I’ll be back to being Jackanory once I have things sorted with Project Ssssh.

Enjoy the NARS video – once again the wonderful blush/bronze compact makes an appearance, and I also have a little experimental session with bright blue eyeshadow. If you want to have a look at prices and shades and so on, there’s a link below the video pane. My favourite product from the 2011 collection is, obviously, the blush/bronze, but I also think that the illuminator in Copacabana is great. Much better, in fact, than the ‘Orgasm’ version which was the star product in this month’s Glossybox. (If you’re dallying between the two, go for the Copacabana – it packs more of a punch, glow-wise.)

  1. Does anyone else after watching this video feel the urge to rush into their bathroom and apply a layer of body lotion.

    Cheers Ruth thanks for the kick up the bum, ahem, motivation.

  2. Hi Ruth, thanks once again for a lovely and inspiring make-up video! you’ve really helped me to be more relaxed about eye make-up and I’m testing all sorts of combinations nowadays, after years of repeating the same boring style.. Make-up can be fun and easy : ) I might even test an illuminator : )

  3. Ruth, I’ve always noticed that most of the time you apply liquid makeup with your fingers, without using a brush, and it does not interfer with your moisturizer. Did you try either Alpha-H seruns or olen henriksen vitamin C serum?
    I tried olen henriksen and my skin gets sticky and leaves white stuff if I rub too much or apply makeup after. I wonder if it’s because of the vitamin C and Alpha-H would do the same… No other serum did this to me before. And I REALLY hate the sticky feeling. It would be completly impossible to apply that NARS’ bronzer after that serum, for example.

    • @Vera I would never apply makeup over a serum, the texture feels wrong, a bit too tacky! Fine to just use serum at night, such as the Alpha-H, but in the daytime you need to follow with a moisturiser so that you have a nicely primed surface x

  4. I picked up the NARS Laguna Body illuminator after seeing your video on it! I love it! Gives the perfect glow without going overboard, which is perfect for my already dark skin! Thanks!
