I'm always that girl who sits and waits in excitement for limited edition boxes to drop (I'm also that girl who always misses them and in a flash, they sell out right before my eyes). Not this time. When I heard about the Modern Minimalist box, a collaboration between NARS and SPACE NK, I squealed. NARS is one of my favourite brands, ever. To put it simply, I've never used a bad product from NARS, they're my go-to for pretty much everything. Everyone knows that SPACE NK is beauty heaven, it's stocked with all the top brands so this little black box is basically the dream collaboration. The box launches today (I imagine it will sell out pretty quickly) and I wanted to show you what's inside...
The box itself is beautiful, a box I'll certainly be keeping to store things in.
This is basically a 'look inside a box' put together by NARS UK make up ambassador, Andrew Gallimore. The box has been put together to enable you to create a minimal look with all the products inside the box. Minimal day to day looks are my favourite so this is again, the dream box for me.
Mini NARS Orgasm Blush - Full Sized Price: £23.00 - Orgasm blush is one of the best NARS products out there, everyone knows it's a hero product and I know why, with its gorgeous kind of rose gold tint it gives me all the heart eye emojis. It gives such a warm, healthy Summer glow and I can see why it's a cult NARS product. This blusher is an absolute gem inside this box and great if you don't want to pay for the full sized one but want to try it.
NARS Satin Lip Pencil in Rikugien - Full Sized Price: £20.00 - Probably my favourite product inside the box. The dreamiest, natural lip colour. I'm a little bit obsessed with nude lip colours and this beats them all because of the gorgeous pink tint it has on it. It glides on beautifully and leaves the lips looking fuller and plumper. I really hate nudes that make the lips look smaller but this is one that fills the lips out. I think I may have found my dream lip shade.
NARS Larger Than Life Eye-Liner - Full Sized Price: £19.00 - You can't really beat a good eyeliner. I personally don't wear eye liner really, especially not for a day to day look but this is a great little addition to the box as it means you can make this minimal look more of an evening look. The eye liner is good, super dark which I what I like.
NARS Audacious Mascara - Full Sized Price: £21.00 - This is currently exclusive to SPACE NK. NARS new Audacious mascara is brilliant for lengthening and this is coming from someone who loves her mascaras. I wouldn't say it makes my lashes too thick, but it does make them long. The great thing about this mascara is that it can be built up, you can layer it and make the lashes as big as you wish.
NARS Lip Gloss in Priscilla - Full Sized Price: £19.00 - This is probably my least favourite product from the collection, I get it, it adds a little bit of brightness to the kit but I'd rather have seen a more neutral coloured lip gloss. I don't really like the colour, I'm just not a bright pink lover but it does mean the box can be used day and night I guess!
NARS Velvet Matte Skin Tint Foundation - Last but certainly not least, I've definitely saved the best until last here, NARS Velvet Matte Skin Tint Foundation and I guess, the reason for this box. This exciting new launch from NARS (full review coming your way really soon) is just stunning. It's light-weight, easy to wear, with great, build able coverage (I was actually shocked at how good the coverage of this foundation is as I was expecting it to be much lighter). It's available in 12 shades and the best part? You get to choose your shade to go with this box! You get a full sized version of this which alone is worth probably around £25-30 (I can't seem to find a price for this anywhere). But I can quickly see this becoming a hero product. I just know this will be the beauty product of Spring so make sure you stock up whilst you can. If you were going to buy this anyway, you may as well spend a little extra and get all the rest of the box too.
The box launches on February 2nd and costs £60 so actually, really good value. You can get yours online here!!!
