I am starting to become a fan of NARS cosmetics. The main thing holding me back from trying NARS was the price. The couple of makeup purchases I have made I’ve been extremely happy with. My first NARS purchase was actually his book, Makeup Your Mind: Express Yourself. This book features women and men of different age, races, skin tones. The book shows the before and after photos which include the instructional sketches on transparent overlays. This book also gives you a list of the NARS products what were used in the makeover. If you can’t afford the products used descriptions of the colors are provided. Makeup Your Mind: Express Yourself is available at Barnes & Noble and amazon.com.
The second NARS item I bought was the Taj Mahal blush. I saw a review of this blush from another Beauty Blogger (thank you Erin of Scandalous Beauty). This blush is described as blazing burnt orange with golden shimmer. I must say this color gives me a nice healthy glow especially since I have a dark complexion. Taj Mahal blush retails for $28.00 and is available at NARS counters and http://www.narscosmetics.com
The last item I purchased was the Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer from NARS. I always wanted to wear a tinted moisturizer. I could never find the right shade until now. Other brands were too light for my complexion. The NARS shade I have is Martinique. The tinted moisturizer is lightweight and does a great job of evening out my skin. I still have to use a little concealer on the blemishes, but it’s nothing major. The Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer retails for $42.00 and can be purchased at Sephora, NARS counters and http://www.narscosmetics.com

It’s a serious commitment to spend a lot of money on any beauty product. I can honestly say I’ve gotten my money’s worth with these purchases from NARS.
