AMW Reports: NARS Opens First Boutique in the Country

If you passed by BHS Central a couple of times and saw the huge sign NARS and wonders when it will finally be open for the public...well, wonder no more!  I am here to tell you that it is officially open and the boutique looks amazing!  A huge "enabler" I tell you!

I was actually there during the "ribbon-cutting" event!  Thanks Nars Philippines for inviting me!

As much as I want to just run into to store, I listened to the welcoming remarks from NARS Philippines Team and got really excited because for a brand well-loved by Professionals and amateurs, I am sure this first ever boutique in the country is the PLACE-TO-BE when you want to look and feel beautiful!

How?  Well, aside from all the wonderful Nars products you may want to test and check out, they also have a make up station where you'll get a free makeover when you purchase any NARS product.

 As a Tourism Graduate, let me guide you to my "route" when I first stepped in the store.  I took a peek at their newest collection called NEONEUTRAL.

The limited edition NEONEUTRAL line consists of pinks, purples, browns and nudes!  This shade screams "me"! because I am a fan of romantic-neutral shades.

And just so you know, if you have NO IDEA where to start, you can always start checking out their displays which consists of eyeshadows, blush, lipstick and a polish --- you can't go wrong with that!

Then I went to look at their 30 shades of Nail Lacquers.  And I can't help but gravitate towards RED!  Who felt the same?  I must admit, red polish really is perfect especially on toenails!

Then off I went to swatch on Audacious Lipsticks!  Nars is known for their wide array of lipstick shades in different finishes! I am in love with all the shades on first 2 rows (from the bottom of the photo)

 Since I have loads of eyeshadows that I can't seem to finish, I just gave a quick overall view on their eyeshadows!  If you are starting out on makeup collection and wants to know the perfect shades to invest on when it comes to shadows, do let me know!  I'll share some of my ideas! :D

I have never tried any NARS mascara so I got intrigued with Larger Than Life mascara!  And oh, the Pro-Prime Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base is one of their bestsellers and I can't wait to share my review on that!

Then if you are in love with colored liners, you may want to head on to their Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliners.

Then I went to the opposite side of the room --- my favorite side.  Base makeup and skincare! 

I have NEVER tried NARS skincare so I'll leave the comment section to you guys who have tried to share to me your experiences.

 As for base, I have a couple of NARS foundation on my kit for clients and I actually didn't get around to review them!  I am actually lemming on to getting their Tinted Moisturizer because I am a fan of their makeup artist Albert and I believe he loves to use the Tinted Moisturizer on his celebrity clients! 

Then there are blushes --- thanks to Julia for enabling me to try on Madly, it is such a nice blush color for NC20-30 skin tone!  It looks "meh" on pan but "vavavoom" on cheeks!

What's your favorite Nars Blush?
Okay, aside from Orgasm? hehehe

Then the Illuminators are a hit during the Press Event.  See how much products are left on tube?

The brushes are made from natural hairs and they are not only pretty to look at but a joy to use!

That's me wearing Madly!  It looks so natural right?

  1. AHH!! I miss my Nars Domination Cheek Palette (T....T) The first time I've seen actual Nars products was during Project Vanity's 7th Anniversary Event. Until someone gave me one.. di naman po kasi ako mahilig sa blush pero honestly ang ganda nung palette na yun.. ba't ko ba kasi binigay..hayy.. hehe.. Plus Tilda Swinton as their model.. WOW! Have you tried their brushes din po? The blush brush is highly recommended by Wayne Goss (Goss makeup artist), a youtuber and by Monika Blunder, hollywood makeup artist. I love their channels..hope you'd have one in the future po.. (^....^) Thanks for sharing those wonderful pics.. ;)

    1. now you won't have the chance to miss it! :)

    2. opo nga eh... I wonder before kung bakit ba addict sa nars blush ang mga kababaihan.. now I know po.. hahaha... at last NARS (***....***) and the liners bongga po.. "LARGER than life!" hahaha (^....^)
