I'm wearing NARS Brow Defining Cream in Danakil. If you love this look, click here for all the details!

NARS Brow Defining Cream ($29 CAD for 2.9g)
This is my new holy grail brow product! The formula is creamy but not oily, it dries down to a matte finish. My skin is super oily and it last all day on me, but it comes off if I rub my eyes.

I like the fact that I don't need 2-3 shades to add some dimension to the brows. The color is buildable so I simply apply more product on the same area if I want a darker color. I apply it with an angled brush and draw light strokes to mimic eyebrow hairs.

The shade Danakil is perfect for me! It's a very dark brown with cool undertones. 

By the way, the Brow Defining Cream is available in 4 shades : Sonoran (blonde), El Djouf (light brown), Tanami (auburn) and Danakil (dark brown).

NARS Unrestricted Satin Eyeliner Stylo ($34 CAD for 1.4ml)
The color is beautifully intense, a deep black with a satin finish. It looks like it's shimmery in this photo, but it's not. The staying power is incredible as well! It's very water resistant and doesn't transfer onto the creases of my eyes.

That being said, I didn't like this eyeliner. The liquid doesn't make it's way to the tip, it's almost as if the felt-tip applicator is a bit too long? It's very difficult to work with, especially if you like a super sharp line!

NARS Audacious Lipsticks ($39 CAD for 4.2g)
I looooove these lipsticks! The formula is very creamy and goes on lips super smoothly. They aren't drying and the staying power is pretty good for such a creamy lipstick. Apoline wore well for 4 hours, while the other colors (Kate, Shirley and Stefania) lasted 6-7 hours on me. I do suggest to use a lipliner if your lips are prone to feathering though.

These 4 shades are extremely pigmented and are completely opaque in one pass! By the way, the Audacious lipsticks are scentless.

The price is pretty high, but they are so worth the money!

Apoline is a soft pinky beige with a creamy and slightly glossy finish. My favorite color out of the 4 shades!
