Okay, so last week I talked about how I love my muff, and this week I'm about to tell you all about my G-Spot. I'm just too good to you people, I really am. Fear not though, I shan't be telling you about my bowels any time soon, I promise.
However, I'm slowly - very slowly - becoming addicted to a bit of NARS. I first saw G-Spot way back last August and it had been haunting my thoughts ever since. Now, it has to be said that I'm not - really - a huge fan of the Multiples, they're not nearly as multi-purpose as people tell you they are, and I find they tend to fade very quickly, but G-Spot is such a beautiful shade that I had to have it anyway.
It's a lovely burnished rose with hints of a golden shimmer, which is a perfect colour to give yourself a rosy glow during the winter:
On the skin it provides a sheer "lit from within" glow, that's just divine:
This has been applied quite thickly to show up in photos, but it's very easily sheered out, it works well over unpowdered skin though, it'll ball up a bit if your base is too dry, and won't blend much. It's easy to apply, I basically just put a little stripe on my cheekbones, then blend with my fingers.
So, all in all this goes to show I'll forgive a formula I'm not that fond of if the colour is right. But I will say this, I HATE THE NAME. Ooh, so daring Mr Nars! Can we just leave off the "shocking" names now, please? They're just annoying, and they're not even that shocking any more. Or, at least think of products to go with, say, Prostate...
The Fine Print: Purchase. Which I made by the expedient of pointing and nodding. There are some places where I don't think asking for a "G-Spot Multiple" will go down too well, and John Lewis is only one of them...
