daisybutter - UK Style Blog: beauty review, i bought this, nars wicked attraction

Last week, in what I like to call a fit of third year fever induced madness, I added the Nars Wicked Attraction set to my ASOS basket and clicked checkout. Now one of my favourite hobbies at the moment is to peruse my favourite e-boutiques, fill up the baskets with what I'd buy if I'd won the Lottery, take a screenshot and then swiftly exit the window in favour of spending some quality time with 10,000 words of dissertation-related fun. So where did I go wrong, one might ask? Sarah, Hannah, Sarah and Emma - the Dream Team - only went and peer pressured me into realising that a blush, bronzer, eyeshadow, primer and lipgloss for £35 was actually a good deal.

Nars Wicked Attraction is a perfect little set for those wanting to try the brand out. It contains the much talked about Orgasm blush and Laguna bronzer, as well as other products that I hadn't initially been excited about, but now can't wait to try properly. I can see a Nars obsession growing already, as the matte black packaging has a really expensive, luxurious quality to it: in a materialistic, narcissist manner, it is a brand you want to pop in your make-up bag and be seen with.

- the highlights, in my words:
'Orgasm' blush - the 'real' version of my old favourite Sleek Rose Gold blush. It is a bright coral pink with fine gold shimmer, and looks beautifully summery worn with lashings of mascara, tousled hair and nude or bright lips.

'Laguna' bronzer - a gorgeous matte, muddy brown bronzer. I've been after my perfect bronzer and/or contour product for months now, and this has stolen my heart already while I slowly attempt to tan for the summer months. I'm still in the stages of applying little by little with a light hand because I'm terrified of wasting any of this!

'Fathom' eyeshadow - this was the product that I really wasn't sure about, but it turns out that I didn't need to worry at all. I'm a huge fan of Urban Decay's eyeshadows, especially Sidecar, which is full of glitter particles, and this is similar except the glitter is much more wearable. A light baby pink with glitter pieces, this is perfect for both daytime and evening looks with lots of mascara and winged liner. I wore this yesterday with Urban Decay's 'Smog' from the Naked Palette which is perfect daytime eye look!

The extra, mini primer and lipgloss are also great quality. I'm typically not a lipgloss lover, but this will live nicely in my handbag for last-minute touch-ups! Overall, I'm glad the Dream Team pushed me into buying this. It makes for a great Nars starter kit, if you will, with all of the favourites in one little package. While £35 looks seriously pricey for make-up, you are getting your money's worth, with a full size blush-bronzer duo and full size eyeshadow. Next on my list is Nars' Penny Lane cream blush. Do you have any recommendations for me?

  1. wow, i really like the look of this set Michelle. And I do believe, for justification purposes, you have got some fab products there all for just £35!! I am in love with Sleek's Rose Gold blusher(am wearing it today) so it only seems inevitable than one day I will try out NARS orgasm blush as well. It looks so pretty, as does the eyeshadow. x

    1. Hahaha Sarah! <3 Orgasm is beautiful, and the eyeshadow is so pretty, Milly! I'm so pleased I took the plunge and snapped up some Nars, although I think I'm addicted because my basket is full again and I reaaally can't afford to accidentally click checkout again ;)

  4. Wow, £35 seems so good for what you get! I really wanted to try that blusher out but didn't know if I needed the full size as i have the Sleek Rose Gold. but when it is this size and price it seems rude not to try it! haha X

    1. It's such a good deal, I totted it up all up and it's worth a good £70 or so! The Orgasm and Laguna is a full-size blush/bronzer duo which is worth around £20+ alone (: I have Rose Gold too, but this is just less shimmery I think, haven't yet swatched them next to each other!

  6. Ahahaha there's nothing like a bit of peer pressure! I'm thinking of getting this for my holidays, but after not spending much since the start of the year, I now seem to be buying everything in sight! (I just ordered a new computer mouse because 'it is pretty'!!!) Online shopping is both a blessing and a curse!

  7. Oooh this set looks lovely. I have the mini bronzer/blush duo that I got on asoa a while ago and I do love it. The bronzer looks really dark but it's stll easy to wear on my fair skin, very buildable which is a good thing and orgasam is just the best blusher ever, so so pretty! The eyeshadow looks lovely too. This is making me want to expand my NARS collection now. I have the sheer glow foundation which is lush and a few lip products but I want more. Their brushes are meant to be lush as well but so expensive :( FYI I use the MAC 109 brush for the laguna and orgasm which seems to work well in my opinion
