NARS Grenadines Review

It's been a long time coming but I knew it was going to happen... I made my first NARS purchase last week & went for one of their gorgeous eyeshadows in 'Grenadines'. I wanted to get a red / brown colour after seeing Nicole Guerriro use MAC 'Brown Script' in here video here but then found out MAC UK doesn't stock it so went on the hunt for a dupe & come across this beauty. 

It was £16.50 on ASOS and then using a 10% student discount made it £14.85 which isn't too bad for NARS products so I was happy! When it got delivered I was SOOOO happy and couldn't wait to try it out, only thing I was disappointed with was the size. It was smaller than I imagined but that didn't stop me ripping open the box & snapping away...

(The photos make it look a little pinker than what it is but I tried my best in getting it as close as I could)  

I teamed it up with 'Tease' from the NAKED 2 Palette to blend it in with my eyes and then used a highlighter out of the HD Brows set for under my brow. 

Using a kohl eyeliner, I drew along my top and bottom lash lines and then piled on the mascara (W7 Lashtastic)

On my lips is MUA Lipstick Shade 8. 

Overall, for the money paid for this shadow, I love it! The pigmentation is brilliant and it lasts all day too. I will definitely be buying more products from NARS and of course, i'll be using my student discount for the extra bit of money off ;) 

Have you tried any NARS products? What's your favourite? 


  1. Lovely colour! I also really love how you've done your eyes for this, they look gorgeous :) xxx

    1. Aw thank you!! I love the colour i'm so pleased it was how I wanted it to be - always a little sceptical buying off the net with makeup especially!
