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!

    I have Lhasa & love it! Got it shortly after it was released this spring. My other taupes have been largely unused since I purchased this.

    I want it so badly. Every swatch of it I have seen online looks gorgeous. I love that it can look nice as a simple wash of color or built up.
