NARSissist x Lily Anna Event at Space NK



On Tuesday, I was very luckily invited along to the NARS Eyeconic pop up studio at Space NK in Soho to celebrate the launch of NARS Dual Intensity Eyeshadows

The eyeshadows are available in 12 gorgeous shades, each with a hint of shimmer. They can be worn dry for a soft, subtle effect, or wet for a more dramatic impact. 

I arrived at the Space NK store a little early with Lucie of Fat Beautyx, so we spent some time exploring the shop floor first. It's a gorgeous, bright space with a fantastic open plan, so it's easy to move around and browse without having to squeeze past other shoppers.

We met the very lovely Lucy of Lulabel Loves, who was very funny and loves meringues!

Speaking of meringues, look at these beauties! They were absolutely delicious rose-flavoured bites of heaven!



After some time mingling with Champagne and meringues, we were sent through to the pop up studio 15 at a time. This was a fantastic idea, as it created a really intimate feel. Everyone felt welcomed and were given plenty of time to experiment with the products.


The very wonderful Lily of Lily Pebbles and Anna of Vivianna Does Make Up where there, and they greeted every attendee individually. I have the utmost respect for them. They greeted everyone as if welcoming a friend, and had something nice to say about every single person (they liked my hair and piercings). Although they are OMG Mega Youtube Stars, they were so down to earth and easy to chat to, and really went out of their way to make sure everyone felt included. 

I had my make up done by a lovely artist named Sandy. She was really helpful and showed me each stage of application so I can replicate it myself at home. I was drawn to the shimmeriest shade- a wonderful silver called Callisto- and Sandy created a fantastic silver smoky eye using Callisto and the Larger than Life eyeliner in Via Veneto. 
The eyeshadow applied really smoothly and evenly, with a surprisingly creamy consistency. It blended easily and stayed put for hours. Despite such great staying power- there was no smudging or fall out at all- it came off really quickly when I removed it. Perfect! 
Sandy also applied a little of the Matte Multiple blush and lip stick in Exumus, which is a gorgeous coral-peach. What do you think of the final look? (My lipstick is just my old faithful MAC Viva Glam Nicki) 
I ended up purchasing the eyeliner, and I was very kindly given two gifts in a magic magnetic close bag: Mini compacts of Deep Throat Blush and Matte Eyeshadow in Daphne. It was such a fantastic event and wonderful to meet Lily and Anna. A huge thank you to both of them, and of course to Space NK and NARS for having me!

  2. *pouts* I'm very intrigued by the wet & dry eyeshadows but honestly I just want to meet Anna & Lily, they are two of the people I would invite to a fantasy dinner party (Dolly Parton, Audrey Hepburn, Diana Wynne Jones & Gail Carriger would complete the line up).

    I'm glad you had a great time ^^
