Happy New Year Ladies! I fully intended to get this NARS Review and Giveaway post out by Christmas, but I needed a bit of time out. So, even though Christmas is over, let’s continue with the Christmas cheer, shall we? I will be sharing my thoughts on a few NARS products I have tried out, AND I have a NARS x Man Ray Love Triangle Blush/Lipstick Set in Hot Sand/ Rita to give away to one lucky reader!
Swatches from Top-Bottom:
Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Cruella- Such a lovely creamy formula, I am loving the colour and pigmentation!
Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Let’s Go Crazy- Amazing formula, and a happy bright pink!
Velvet Lip Glide in Bound- Less pigmented and long-lasting than I expected, but a nice nude gloss.
NARSissist Cheek Kit Highlighting Blush in Devotee- My favourite from this palette, such a pretty highlighter!
NARSissist Cheek Kit Blush in Orgasm- The more I use this the less I get the appeal, it is quite shimmery, and although the colour is pretty, the shimmer puts me off a bit.
NARSissist Cheek Kit Bronzer in Laguna- This is a nice bronzer, but in this palette it is a bit more warm toned than the stand alone.
Blush in Goulue- One of my favourite blush shades! I cannot get enough of this smooth, pretty shade.
Bronzer in Laguna- I like the bronzer and use it quite often, but I don’t think it is a holy grail bronzer.
And now for the Giveaway! You can win this cute little NARS x Man Ray Limited Edition Love Triangle Blush/Lipstick Set. The set contains a Mini Highlighting Blush in Hot Sand (peach champagne) and a Mini Audacious Lipstick in Rita (scarlet).
Only open to SA residents.
All entries will be verified.
The Giveaway ends on the 31st of January at midnight, and a winner will be chosen shortly after that.

Mine was getting some much needed R&R with my bestie with a trip to the Drakensberg for 4 days. What an amazing time we had relaxing without distractions and day-to-day stresses of being single parents.
finishing my 3rd year at Varsity in Civil Engineering and looking forward to finishing my 1 year internship this year before completing my final year and obtaining my degree
I love nars products so much I watch YouTube reviews on them all the time so this is the perfect giveaway for me.
My favorite 2017 moment was breaking a tradition of spending Christmas at home but actually traveling with my best friend to Namibia. After months of saving we funder ourselves & had the best moments of 2017.
This is such a stunning giveaway!! my fav NARS product definitely has to be the Laguna Bronzer – Life right there! Also my fav moment of 2017 was finding out that my husband and I are pregnant with our 2nd baby girl due mid April 2018 ❤
Definitely adopting my rotti puppy Indie, finding meds for my restless legs (i am serious lol) and taking leave after christmas for the first time since 2014.
My favourite moment of 2017 was when my little boy finally walked for the first time! He was 17 months old so I was getting very worried. We were in a pub and he just stood up and walked over to the waitress! I was such a proud mama that day!
My favourite moment of 2017 was completing my honors degree!

Fav part of 2017. Sitting at work on a Friday at 10pm on a deadline and realising that no matter how hard things get…I will always rise to the challenge!
This looks so amazing. Never tried Nars before but only heard great things about this brand. Favorite moment was when I said good bye to 2017! Too many sad things has happened. Loss of a loved one (stepdad), nephew was knocked by taxi, Mom had a heart attack and I finally broke free from my in-law who treated me like a maid. ( yeah I know its personal lol but truth be said right. )
Wow! How beautiful are these NAR products? Love them!
My favourite moment for 2017 was enjoying my holiday trip to Cape Town with my son

My fav moment of 2017 was purchasing my first vehicle!
My favourite moment from 2017 was the day I graduated and finally said goodbye to an institution that had become my home for six years (I studied right through, from my undergrad to my postgrad/Masters). But I will forever cherish that moment as it reminded me that in spite of financial difficulty, with hard work and being self-disciplined, education is certainly possible.
How did I miss that cheek palette when the collection launched!? Such gorgeous shades. I own them all in different palettes and they’re so pretty! Xx
Tania | When Tania Talks
The palette is pretty old, although they always launch similiar ones!
Nars are so good with everything they bring out! Great giveaway xx

Firstly, I am a sucker for a gorgeous blush and highlight and those NARSissist cheek kit highlighting blush & blush look sooo pretty 😍.
My favorite moment of 2017? I have so many moments that I can’t choose one. I think that ONE of my favorite moments was celebrating my 21st birthday in September with my love, my closest friends and my family 🎉.
here’s to many more amazing memories in 2018. May it be an amazing one for all 🎉🎉. Let’s slay our makeup game, let’s smash all our goals, let’s be better & kinder 💕.
My favourite moment of 2017…. moving back to Cape Town, quit the job I dont like, and do things I enjoy!
Thank you for this awesome post and stunning giveaway. I’ve managed to get my hands on 2 Nars products and I’m totally in love. I’ve been dying to try the Laguna bronzer as well as rhein Audacious lipsticks.
Also my favourite part of 2017 is getting engaged to the love of my life
I really want to try Laguna Bronzer, it looks stunning! I want to try more from Nars definitely this year, they are so good!

Laguna is really nice, the lip pencils are stunning!
My favourite moment of 2017…. That’s a hard one. I’m going to say when I heard I passed my exam to get a higher qualification, even though I was sure I messed up the practical… I’d put a lot of work into that exam and the elation of getting it is something that will stay with me for a long time.
Hi my fav part of 2017 was going shopping for new clothes (after losing 15kg)
Wow what a cool giveaway. I’ve been dying to try Hot Sand. My favourite part of 2017 was getting to go on 3 mini getaways with my husbands. He works crazy hours and we don’t get to see each other that often. So it was a special year with him having more time off. Happy New Year Hun. Keep up the great content. Xx
