On Tuesday I was in Leeds City Centre and used this opportunity wisely. By this I mean I headed straight to Harvey Nicks like a heat seeking missile and hit the Nars Counter.
I wanted to be colour matched and get my mitts on a tester for Nars Sheer Glow Foundation.
The lovely counter assistant Joanna didnt only colour match me, but said if I went and picked up a few sample pots from Muji she'd give me the full skin care range of samples that she thought I needed!!
I was colour matched to Mont Blanc and headed to pick up some sample pots from Muji. Joanna was absolutely lovely, and by far the most informative, pleasant, generous counter assistant I've ever come across. She also commented on the length of my lashes asking if I was wearing falsies because they "are enormous" and also said I was a real "blusher girl" :)
The samples she gave me were beyond generous and the skin care products she gave me are really lovely. The only problem is this. These products are expensive, and by expensive I mean EXPENSIVE. To me these skincare products are priced at higher than higher end. (The moisturiser alone is £40 *ouch*)
The products she gave me were:
Balancing Foam Cleanser (£24.50)
Balancing Moisture Lotion (£40.00)
Hyrdating Freshening Lotion (£27.00)
Mud Mask (£33.00)
Nars Sheer Glow Foundation (£29.00)
And despite the fact they really are lovely products there is no way on the planet they are worth the combined £100 there abouts to purchase them. This makes me sad, because if the price was right I'd have already purchased these products and would be writing a different post recommending them.
Lovely products but seriously overpriced.
As for the foundation, I'm still undecided so will keep schtum until I've decided to go ahead and purchase a full size or not.
Here are a few snaps of the Sheer Glow. This is how it looked when Joanna put it on me at the counter.
And here it is when I applied it today, also I'm not wearing any concealer today... I always wear concealer!
To finish on a positive, I can not praise the Nars Counter Assistant Joanna enough, I'm tempted to email Nars and tell them how superb she was! Its a rare treat to find make up counter staff who are actually nice!
