NARS Love Triangle Deep Throat Review

Happy New Year everyone! I have been posting scarcely these couple of months even after I've changed my entire website and bought my domain (finally!). I thought it will inspire me to be active in blogging again but I was preoccupied with other things. I would definitely try my best to write more at least once a week. So here is my first entry this year.

I've been wanting to try this brand for a long time but I find it very expensive so I've never really got to try their products. But during the holiday season I saw this collection from their Holiday 2017 Gifting Collection which consists of 4 Love Triangle boxes which are Impassioned, Deep Throat, Orgasm & Dolce Vita. Each box has one of their bestselling Audacious lipstick & a blusher. The moment I saw it, I said to myself: "finally I can afford to buy & try not only one but two of their products!" The full size of these products costs normally more than 30 each and that is a hefty price for a makeup to me. So when I saw that it only costs €22 I was really excited!

It was soldout everywhere when I wanted to order one and the only available one I found was the Impassioned which I was not really keen on buying because the shades are too pink for me and I don't really need another pink lipstick in my collection. I was really surprise how fast these things soldout! I didn't order it right away because I can't decide whether to get it or not. And when the moment came that I finally decided to get one, everything in every website was soldout! So next year I would really search in advance and be alert.

Thankfully, Sephora France restocked it! I almost got the impassioned one because I thought there's no way it will be restocked ever again. Timely, I wanted a cracker from Sephora as well so it was my lucky day!

This is how the box looks like with the other cracker I got from Sephora

They are tiny in person but good for traveling. This is a good size for me to try a product. It's hard for me to finish a full size blush or lipstick so this would be ideal.

Audacious Lipstick Barbara (2.3g) & Deep Throat Blush (2.5g)

Swatches - (L: Audacious Lipstick Barbara; R: Deep Throat Blush)

Audacious Lipstick Barbara (a warm pink with a satin finish)
Dramatic Depth. Unstoppable Character.
Modern lipstick so shamelessly seductive in touch and texture the sensation is audacious. Unadulterated luxury glides on like satin across skin with single-stroke coverage. A spectrum of 30 shades for unstoppable impact.
One-stroke, full-coverage creamy wear
Luxurious texture and enriched with ingredients to smooth and nourish lips
Long-lasting 
The moment I applied it, the smell put me off. It has really a strong scent that I'm not used to with lipsticks. It does not smell good! I can't explain the smell but it is not pleasant. But putting the smell aside, it is very creamy and glides easily. The formula is not as thick as mac but I still like it. It is indeed very nourishing and makes your lips look so smooth. It is very comfortable on the lips. It's not sticky and it does transfer so you need to retouch it after you eat or drink. At first I didn't like it and thought I can't go out like this because I looked like I was ill but after taking photos I noticed it  looked good so I just wore it at work. This is slight lighter for a nude shade for me but I still can pull it off but if it was a tad darker it would be perfect for me. 

NARS Deep Throat Blush (a warm coral with a hint of pink and a golden shimmer-sheen)

The ultimate authority in blush, NARS offers the industry's most iconic shades for cheeks. Natural, healthy-looking color that immediately enlivens the complexion. A light application of even the highest-intensity hues delivers a natural-looking flush.
Silky texture in matte and shimmering shades
Micronized powder ensures soft, blendable application
Iconic NARS shades
I really apply my blushers with a light hand that's why it is not so visible the difference on my face. It gives a healthy flush on my cheeks. It is very pigmented and I only dip my brush so lighty to get the product. It is pretty matte on my face and the golden shimmer is not really visible once applied on the cheeks.

If you are wondering how tiny they are. I place them next to a mac lipstick for reference. 

They are pretty compact. But I don't really mind it because they are perfect for traveling and hopefully a blush that I could finally hit pan on! 

The packaging of the NARS lipstick is brilliant because it makes it look bigger than what it actually is since the base is higher. But I'm pretty satisfied with the amount of product I get and they still managed to embosse their brand name on the lipstick even if it is tiny which adds a nice touch.

                                                                    This is how it looks after on my face when both applied
It is very a nice everyday combo for nude lovers out there. It looks so refreshing and I have a feeling I would enjoy wearing them all throughout the year. The quality is really great and I'm glad that I have finally tried the NARS makeup. Would I buy the full size? Yes but not the full price! I will just wait if it goes on sale.

Overall, I am really happy with this purchase and I can't wait for their next holiday collection. I will look forward to it!
