At first I was turned off by the chunky glitters that contain in those products. They looked a bit scary, or maybe I am not a big fan of glittery make-up look. But I eventually found the way to work with them, they are good for highlighting, especially on your brow bones and cheek bones.

Nars - Midsummer Dream Set

Products in this set are;
– 0.35 oz Hungry Heart Blush Duo
– 0.14 oz Orgasm Multiple
-0.25 oz Adelita Nail Polish

Nars - Hungry Heart Blush Duo

All of them contain glitters… but they are not too intense. I think the best way for applying “Hungry Heart Blush Duo” is using a duo fiber brush (MAC 188, or MAC 187). You can build it up as you like, in this way you would be sure that your face will not padded with too much glitter. The colors look beautiful, I have to admit, even though you can obviously see sparkling particles… still look classy.

Nars - Orgasm Multiple Stick

About “Orgasm Multiple”, a stick is very easy to use and take with you in a travel bag. The color is similar or Orgasm Blush but this multiple stick contains glitter particles. You only need a tiny bit on your cheek for highlight. I don’t know if it works as a blush, for me it does NOT. The color doesn’t show up as I want them to… I have quite a fair skin. For darker skins, it would disappear. I recommend to use it as a highlight… great for Summer because the staying power is very long. It does brighten up my complexion a little also.

Nars - Adelita Nail Polish

“Adelita Nail Polish” is very beautiful color. Again, it has glitters in it. I suggest you to paint your nail first with CLEAR nail polish before putting this one on. The purpose is to make it easy when you want to remove. Every nail polish with glitters is quite a pain, difficult to remove. The glitters would stay on, you need to rub them off for several time. A quick fix would be applying a clear polish before a glitter one. It works, you will find it so much easier to remove.

For those who love glitters… this set would be a great treat — the quality is high. Well, Nars does not disappoint us. We all know about a good reputation of their products. It also would make a great gift set, perfect for sparkling look.

Lip glosses are great! For me, it is one of the make-up products that I always keep it in my purse. Every 3-6 months, we really have to toss some of them away (for sanitary reason). Therefore, finding a replacement is so much fun. Are you looking for new lip glosses right now? Here are some interesting pieces you may want to try.
