For my birthday last week my incredible best friend gave me the gift to end all gifts!

My two favourite brands have collaborated to create this amazing gift box. NARS and SpaceNK have created the Modern Minimalist Collection, a limited edition brand box exclusive to SpaceNK.

The set contains the following products;

Full-size Velvet Matte Skin Tint

Mini Audacious Mascara in Black Moon

Mini Lip Gloss in Priscilla

Mini Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner in Via Veneta

Mini Blush in Orgasm

Mini Satin Lip Pencil in Rikugien


As I’ve mentioned in previous posts I suffer from oily combination skin, so am always scouting out the best oil free, mattifying solutions. The Velvet Matte Skin Tint is incredible! I honestly don’t think there are enough words to describe how gorgeous this product is.

The texture is so light and silky, highly pigmented and buildable if a fuller coverage is required. I wore it out on my birthday night and it didn’t budge, shine or change for a full 8 hours, major brownie points from me!

As I have eyelash extensions I only used the Audacious Mascara on my lower lashes, even so the formula is smooth and blacker than black. It lengthened my lower lashes quite considerably.

Lip Gloss in Priscilla is a Barbie girls dream *holds hands up* It’s sleek, super shine, super pink and looks good enough to eat!

Now for the eyeliner, this is mega long lasting, I usually hail MAC for the best long lasting khol eyeliner however this is taking the crown. I used this on both my tight line and water line, again it didn’t shift all night!!

Orgasm Blusher. Need I say more – See my previous blog post regarding this scream worthy blusher!

Now for possibly my favourite product of the kit and perhaps my favourite product ever. Big statement I know, however I honestly struggle with lip sticks and glosses. Personally I don’t wear glosses as gloss, hair and wind are my arch nemesis! I also struggle with lipsticks as I get dehydrated easily the first sign of this is my lips drying, leading my lipstick to crack!

This Satin lip pencil is the perfect blend of lipstick and chubby stick. The pencil is small enough so you can be precise with application, yet chunky enough to not be a harsh end like a lip liner.

The consistency is a dream! So smooth, moisturising, highly pigmented and long lasting! Throughout the evening I reapplied just twice, even when it had worn off on wine glasses it leaves behind a tint to continue the colour!

All in all this NARS Modern Minimalist Collection is amazing, all the products are incredible in true NARS style. I highly recommend getting this kit for all your make up needs!

Go get yours now…go, Go, GO! Then tell me how much you love it!
