GLOSSYBOX NARS LIMITED EDITION BOX


“ Don’t hold back. Be bold. It encourages others to do the same. “
François Nars, founder and creative director

GLOSSYBOX, the global beauty box giant, have teamed up with seductive, international beauty brand we all know, NARS, to curate a truly orgasmic limited edition box featuring their iconic collection of five must-have mini Narcissist products!

As we all know GLOSSYBOX are great for discovering new brands, ones we never heard of or tried before. But it’s just so good when you know you’re getting carefully selected, iconic products from a luxury brand we all know and love. I was a little hesitant in doing a review of this November box as knowing that it is impossible to get hold of it now. It sold out pretty quick (within 30 minutes). However, I do think some people still want to see what’ s inside and perhaps, make a decision on any full sized products they may want to buy. From what I know, there were only 3000 boxes produced so indeed it’s quite the collector’s edition box.




So the box itself is SO NARS, it has a gorgeously velvet matte texture. You might want to keep it especially if you’re the collector type.

Their hero selection of favourites from NARS just about made this one of the most special and sought-after boxes to date. You even get to try out their newest mascara that launched just recently. Also the eyeliner has a sharpener , another nice detail not to be missed.

Here’s what’s inside the box…



THE MULTIPLE
IN ORGASM

“The trick with this multi-use cult classic is to use it like a crayon. Rub a little on the back of your hand to warm it up, then dab along your cheekbones, lips, eyes and even body for a shimmery, w.arming contour. It’s totally buildable— one stroke will highlight, two will provide a pinkish glow and three a healthy blush.”

TIP: For someone on the run, the Multiple is the best product to use. It has a very velvety and transparent textures that make you look great in under three minutes! I think this is a must have for any NARS junkie. The Multiple can be used for cheeks, eyes and lips. I even use them underneath sheer glow or even sheer matte foundations to give your skin that luminous glow.

FULL SIZE £29




AUDACIOUS MASCARA
“For long and lustrous lashes, sweep a coat or two of NARS’ latest mascara on your lashes— wiggling the wand from from root to tip. It’s clever brush design has a mix of long and short bristles, little lengthening hooks and is slightly tapered to lift , curl, and amplify your lashes. In one swipe of a mascara wand your lashes will be totally transformed, trust us…”

Designed with over 200 molded bristles and lengthening hooks, NARS’ lash-catching brush evenly grips and coats lashes from roots to tips. Simultaneously separates, lengthens, and amplifies. Its tapered tip finishes off the inner and outer reaches of your imagination, while enhancing lower lashes. An extraordinary balance of suppleness with staying power, this uniquely fluid first-to-market formula offers extreme buildability. Lightweight. Long-wearing.

FULL SIZE £21



BLUSH
IN ORGASM
“ The perfect partner in crime for The Multiple. Use alone in the day for a delicate, natural-looking flush then layer it over The Multiple in the evening to create aluminous, intense finish. When it comes to the blusher, it all lies in application— so after your cheeks, blend a little into the hairline, along the jaw and on the tip of the nose. It’ll work wonders.”

TIP: I think this blush needs no introduction. It’s a certified cult classic. When it comes to blush, how and where you apply it is more important than what colour you use. Cheek colour shouldn't be limited to the apples (no one blushes only on their cheeks!). I always blend a bit into the hairline, along the jawbone, and on the tip of the nose to create a more natural-looking, all-over hint of colour.

FULL SIZE £23



LARGER THAN LIFE
LONG-WEAR EYELINER IN VIA VENETO
“If you’re after an eyeliner that stays put, this is it (for 12 hours, may we add). The rich, creamy texture glides on and leaves a smudge-proof trail of intense black i its path. Rather than applying it in one motion, try sketching on your desired shape for more control and a sleeker finish.”

TIP: Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliners are great for creating precise liner that won't move, crease, or smudge. Eyeliner is a modern classic that never loses its style and can be completely customized to create the feeling or "character" you want. Think about sketching the desired shape rather than trying to paint it on in one motion. This will give you more control and a smoother 
application. 

FULL SIZE £19





SATIN LIP PENCIL
IN RIKUGIEN
“ The dusty rose shade of this jumbo lip pencil is the perfect suits-all hue for autumn. Its silken texture drenches your pout in a stick of moisture-rich, creamy lipstick. Tap the pencil unto the centre of your lips and use your fingers to smudge outwards for a kissed-iff look that works day or night.”

TIP: Satin Lip Pencil dresses up lips in statement shades that seduce with rich, colour-bright pigments while drenching them in decadent moisture. A modern, long-wearing, vitamin-enriched formula in a jumbo pencil format to provide great wear and intense colour with a satin finish. Use for lining, all-over lip colour, or pairing with another lip product. For a feminine and fresh spring look, pair Rikugien with Pirée Larger Than Life Lip Gloss for a rosy, glossed pout then add contour to the hallow of the cheeks with Amour Blush. 

FULL SIZE £19



This is the ultimate beauty box offering, and is worth over £56. Perfect for gifting, but even more perfect for spoiling yourself with. It was £30 for subscribers and £35 for non-subscribers (excluding postage & packaging which was around £3.95). So I paid just under £40 which is a steal in my opinion. It is a lovely box to own. What better way to be introduced into the brand with their luxe minis to pop into your bag (if you haven’t yet tried a little bit of NARS)… you’ll be converted in no time.

Did you get the GLOSSYBOX for NARS?
