Nars Cosmetics: Believe In your Own Beauty

 Nars Cosmetics: Believe In your Own Beauty 

Occasionnaly we feature A cosmetics revue through the experience of Moi Sgp .. where I take you through my preachy tirades and experiences..Please indulge…. My Schpeell about Nars Summer 08

If there is Anything I Love in our  world of consumption it’s a brand that stands for something…that has something to say..I dunno about you but I like to know what a brand believes about the people who consume it  or that there is a philosphy behind what they do..especially with something so Involved as cosmetics..

Francois Nars is quoted here as saying..To believe in you own Beauty… How often do we hear that … Think about it… there are women today who grace the pages of every magazine who would have been considered weird or just not a praiseworthy beauty…Whether because of a  prominent nose,a skin Color a shape of body ect.. 

 Nars Cosmetics: Believe In your Own BeautySo In my "testing" the first thing I went to of course was the Lip Gloss Called"Missbehave" it’s one of those lip glosses that really can make you Mis-behave if you are not careful ..

On a darker skin tone it’s like a Goldish Redish Bonze, and on a fair complexion it’s slightly darker.The Good thing about this Gloss is that it’s really sheer…really shiny,NOT Sticky..Perfect for the summer…and pretty much anytime..

And kinda dangerous..I found myself pouting constantly..Did I say dangerous..

The Mindgame Lipstick is also Very Sheer and goes well under the gloss it was very "natural "Looking on a medium skin tone "a la Rihanna" and if you’re  of the lighter persuasion "a La Carrie Bradshaw" it’s perfect for everyday fierceness…

The name gets me too tough..Who said girls can’t play too…


 Nars Cosmetics: Believe In your Own BeautyThe texture of this Pencil Roman Holiday is perfect it glides on..It’s more like a lipstick. However On a darker skin tone it’s very light..

It can be used to make thin lips look fuller But unless you are very familair The technique I recommend getting a make-up pros advice..

For a very fair skin tone tough it’s cute and even a little retro


 Nars Cosmetics: Believe In your Own Beauty 

 In essence make-up is about taking Risks and getting out of your comfort Zone Who knows You might even Find  a beauty that you never knew was there…. Your True Beauty….The one you have to find in yourself before others can see it…

Check after the jump for a few women I think had to find their own beauty…I don’t know them Personnally But I think You’ll agree that in the Media none of them comes across as insecure…Unlike others..
