Being so inaccesible in this part of the world, NARS is nothing if not a cult brand for us. So when someone offers me a chance to order some NARS from the USA of course I leap at the opportunity!
Fittingly, I’d been lusting after the NARS Tzarine eyeshadow duo which is a new item for Fall 2010. So once I saw it available it was all systems go!
Since I was already at it, I also picked up the Orgasm Illuminator (no thanks to buddy LeGeeque’s raves) and a Smudge Brush #15. The last item is something I’d been wanting for years. I just never picked it up because I thought it freaking expensive for such a tiny brush.
But having read nothing but raves for the #15 smudge brush, I had to see what the hype is all about. Apparently, its a must have to create a good smokey look or to smoke out eyeliner or even to just use for lining with powder.
I’ll be seeing how well it works for me. And I leave you with Nars Tzarine eyeshadow duo. The item that started this haul in the first place 😛
Pretty no? 🙂 Now which item do you want me to dig into first?
NARS Tzarine eyeshadow duo (US$32) #15 Smudge Brush (US$26) Orgasm Illuminator (US$29)

Nars Orgasm was the only thing that tickle my taste bud… but not anymore because I’m more interested in your Tzarine eyeshadow duo ! the colors look so pretty and versatile… How about a swatch ? hehehehe… I saw Nars in Hong Kong Sasa… Nars Orgasm was selling around RM140 last year when I was there…
Swatch will come up soon! Closest NARS for us will be Bangkok and HK. Pity 😛 But its pretty pricey either way.
I wanna see the Orgasm Illuminator first!
Okedoke! (gotta work out how to use it first 😛 )
illuminator for me too! my skin on my cheeks has improved completely, i was so stupid to go hunting around for moisturizers when i shouldve gone back to the one brand which has NEVER disappointed ma skin – Dior. bought the white emulsion. works great for me!
but but..one thing which never happens to me, happened. my forehead broke out! noooooooo
Yikes! Could that breakout be stress? Or a shampoo that didn’t work for you?
FOTD! hahaha then you can use EVERYTHING 😛
I’ve always been tempted to get the Malaysia, just for the name (hahaha) but I don’t think I’ll ever have the heart to splurge so much on makeup, unless I’m earning in pounds..
When Malaysia first came out, I was fascinated too (for the name) but I don’t use Multiples so I passed. Then they came up with Kuala Lumpur eyeshadow duo which I was also fascinated with… but the colours weren’t me. Sigh… Btw, if you save RM1 a day, getting a NARS item becomes affordable 😉 But I wouldn’t get the multiple – maybe a powder product that will last you longer.
oohhh Paris you are tempting me with your NARS haul 🙂 i wish NARS is available here in Malaysia. by the way how do you think Tzarine compares to Rajasthan? i can’t decide! 🙂
I saw Rajasthan and its like the darker, warmer sister of Tzarine. I’ve worked out that although I’m neutral toned, I do tend to look better in cool shades so Tzarine it was. Rajasthan had the potential to make my eyes look muddy. That said, if you have warm tones, I reckon it’d be gorgeous!
*jealous* Who wouldn’t want some Nars…..hehehe.
I’d love to see you doin a look that uses all the Nars products here!! (me being a teensy too greedy, hehehe)
Hehe… I’ll try and I reckon it’d work together too!
And when I see how awesome it looks, I would want some toooo! *bad news for the bank account ;)*
Btw, do you reckon shops in Bangkok sells Nars??
Yes they do have Nars in Bangkok 🙂 I know Central department store sells them. The one I know is in the World Trade Center that’s now closed for repairs.
Wowie! My fren’s off to Bangkok and I would love to give Nars a spin..:)
I would want NARS too!!! HAIH…
yep! We all do LOL!
Oh, what a lovely I’m craving for some NARS products for the longest, but have not got my hands on anything yet (since it is not available here in my country).
I LOVE the eyeshadow duo you got a lot!! And the brush looks really interesting too! 😉
Its not available here too. Bummer isn’t it? I’ll write about them soon! 😀
Tzarine please! I love the colour combination though I don’t know if I like it enough to get it. I usually fall out of love with NARS products fairly quickly…
psst! Me too 😛 But Tzarine held my interest for more than 2 seconds so I guess I’d like it hehe… I’m a little wary about the packaging though. Afraid it’d die on me in time to come.
Please show all of them! 😀 I love the Smudge brush! Rajasthan goes different on my lid though..It goes on peacocky, rather than grey. Absolute love 🙂
I haven’t tried Rajasthan – just looked at it. But it really looks pretty and now from your description, sounds pretty too!
Yeah, I only bought it based on other blogger’s reviews.. And also how it is LE and it was sold out three times in a week. Gosh, I am lame :D. I want to buy Tzarine though!
Haha don’t we all get suckered in by other bloggers?! I got suckered because of blogs too (especially hard when we don’t get Nars here 😉 ) Debated long and hard between Tzarine or Rajasthan.
Nice haul! I love Nars too, but unfortunately I don’t have a counter near me.
The Orgasm Illuminator sounds nice and so does the brush.
*Hearts* It’s all too gorgeous!
Soooo many years… and Nars is still not sold in Malaysia (the country, not the Multiple 😉 When… when…?
