NARSkin Du Jour 10.12.09

When I went to Bloomingdales in Soho I was introduced to this lovely little product.

First and Foremost, the packaging on this is killer. It is a very weighty architectural box in all white matte. I love it! So modern and minimalist! I am a sucker for packaging, we know this.

Anyway, onto the important stuff, that product. It is a brightening serum, it is a light weight serum that has crushed pearl in it for illuminating qualities. There is no glitter or shine. It is meant to be used under your makeup as a moisture boost and base. You can also use it over makeup for a highlighting oomph.

I really like this product, it is very subtle. Regarding the claims of improved skin and brightness I have not been using it long enough to see those effects, but I do really like the product. It definitely adds moisture and gives a boost of luminosity. It is an expensive boost for $61. I would not recommend running out to spend $61 dollars on this right away unless you have very dry and dull skin, like me!

From the NARS Website...
A fast-acting, lightweight serum that visibly brightens skin after only one application, immediately improving the appearance of dull complexions by promoting clarity and brightness. A more radiant and even skin tone is immediately attainable through a unique combination of Active Phytoseed Complex, powerful antioxidants and Fennel, revealing a luminous complexion and youthful glow.

I was trying to get a picture of the iridescence. It has an opal like coloring.

Very light, lotion like...
Rubbed in, a slight glow...

Has anyone tried NARS skin care? Thoughts?


  1. hhmmmm interesting, looks like a nice product but I'm not sure I would shell out the cash at the moment...I have alot of illuminating products to use up before I even think of adding to my collection. Great post though!You don't hear alot about Nars skincare

  2. Thanks for this post, I havent tried any of the Nars skincare. Love the packaging though! :)

  3. Liparazzi- Yeah it is quite pricey! I know not much to chatter about it. I like it though!

  4. Computer- the packaging is very luxe!

  5. I love the fact that the packaging is white I think it's perfect for a skin care line =)


  6. I've never tried any NARS skincare before, I don't think I even realised they did skincare come to think of it.
    Hopefully this will be to you what Moisture Surge is too me! I've sent you an email re: your unwanted jar xx

  7. I have tried a couple of NARS skin care products including a toner that is amazing. The only thing that prevents me continuing to purchase is the price. The skincare is made by Shiseido I hear, which is affiliated with NARS. parent company?

  8. Lipstick- yeah it is very pricey, which is annoying! Shiseido has lovely skincare!

  9. Oops - I never knew that NARS made skincare products!!!
    This one looks great though, love the subtle glow!
    Does it hold foundation well too (longer lasting, smoother looking etc)?


  10. I've been using this for a while and I really like it,it has a pleasant smell too. Unfortunately Nars isn't sold here in Italy but I'd like to try more products from their Skincare range...
