Taupe-tastic Tuesday: NARS Lhasa
Ahhh.... Tuesday is slowly becoming my favorite day of the week! :)
NARS Lhasa isn't brand spanking new to the market but I finally picked it up a few weeks ago and used it for the first time on Monday and I knew immediately what taupe would be talked about today!
NARS packaging is very plain, black and white. The compact itself is a rubberized plastic material that some people find difficult to keep clean. I personally don't have a big problem keeping them clean. I have a couple blushes that I swapped others for that are a little yucky, but the ones that have been in my possession since "birth" are pretty clean.
Here is what the back of the packaging looks like. I know I enjoy these label photos, and find that they can be helpful at times when you are trying to authenticate your purchases/swaps.
Now for that beautiful pan of all things good in the world. It is a beautiful hazy lavender grey with a smidge of mink that can be piled on to give a sultry dark smokey eye or blended out to leave a soft wash of color behind. It is such a versatile, multi-faceted shade.
It has a beautiful rich satin finish. You can see that this is a highly pigmented eyeshadow from the finger swatch.
Like I said before, the first time I wore this was Monday (yesterday) and I just did a wash all over the lid and built up the color on the outer half and added a shimmery inner corner highlight and it was perfect. It looked polished but not overdone. I am definitely going to do the same look again soon to show you how simple, yet great it looked.
You all know that I own a ton of taupes... I have really tried to refrain from purchasing more unless they are truly unique or create a sense of urgency for me... NARS Lhasa did just that. I can not tell you how much I love it. I always knew I would, but I was trying to be strong!
