It's Official: These Are the Best Nars Products Under $70
As beauty editors, we get countless products every day. We've seen it all and tried it all, so the competition for our favourites is tough. As a result, it takes a lot to impress us, and only a select few are truly great and so special that they earn a consistent spot on our vanities and in our makeup bags.
Incidentally, nearly all of us at Byrdie Australia HQ agree that Nars has perfected the formula for creating those truly great products that withstand both the test of time and hold up against the thousands of other products on the market. Long wearing, highly pigmented, and always a little unique, these are the best products that Nars has to offer. The best part? They're all well under $70, so go ahead and treat yourself to a little afternoon pick-me-up. Keep reading to find out our picks for the best Nars products under $70.
Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil ($39)
When it comes to lipsticks, finding the perfect one is no easy feat. That's why it's especially impressive when one product is a favourite across the board. All of Byrdie Australia is completely obsessed with this pencil—Senior editor Hallie Gould says that it's her desert island must-have. "It's matte but not drying and adds just the right amount of brightness." Managing editor Lindsey Metrus likes to up the hydration by using it as a stain, smudging a thin layer onto her lips with her fingers, then topping off with a clear balm.
Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer ($44)
Year after year, this concealer earns a spot on a list of bestselling products. It's no surprise, really, when you consider how magical it is. Though the texture of the product is extremely light and comfortable, the creaminess of the long-wearing formula effortlessly hides all imperfections from morning to night. It's the best of both worlds, and, as far as we're concerned, one of the easiest ways to fake a flawless complexion.
Nars Duo Eyeshadow ($52)
News editor Victoria Hoff sings praises of this duo in the shade "St-Paul-de-Vance" because it's perfect for doubling as a blush. "In fact, it's the only "blush" I use because I hate blush," she says adamantly. Richly pigmented and super long-wearing, this eyeshadow is a favourite of many at Byrdie Australia. Editorial assistant Katie McEntee likes it in "Alhambra," a rose gold and champagne pairing.
Nars The Multiple ($57)
Nars's resident multitasker, the Multiple, is a cream-to-powder stick that feels at home everywhere—cheeks, eyes, lips, you name it. Each available shade, of which there are thirteen, is perfectly blendable and buildable, so the possibilities are seemingly endless. Editorial director Faith Xue is one of the biggest fans of this customisable superhero.
Nars Eyeliner Stylo ($40)
This liquid liner is Lindsey's favourite tool for creating a perfect cat eye because it's easy to wield, even if you're terrible at getting those signature crisp lines. She starts in the middle of the top lash line, then glides the felt-tip towards the outer eye and back toward to tear duct for an even line (trust her on this one). As a bonus, the formula is incredibly smudge-proof, so your carefully crafted look will last the entire day. If that hasn't sold you yet, it's even a favourite of Alexa Chung, queen of the winged liner.
Nars Semi-Matte Lipstick ($40)
Hallie credits this lipstick from Nars for changing her life—her words, literally. "For years, I was scared of red lipstick. But when I first tried Red Lizard and Heat Wave, everything changed," she explains. She wore them so much that they became a crucial part of her signature look, even causing her friends to feel as though there was something missing about her if she went sans-lipstick. Enriched with Vitamin E, these are as hydrating as they are bold, so lips stay comfortably soft all day while still delivering a powerful impact.
Nars Velvet Matte Skin Tint Broad Spectrum ($66)
This oil-free offering is a unique hybrid—it provides the same hydrating benefits of a tinted moisturiser, but imparts the coverage and finish expected from a foundation. The result is a perfect, velvety finish that feels comfortable and looks totally natural. In fact, we like it so much that it's even earned a spot on our list of best tints for shiny t-zones.
