NARS Love Rite Anniversary Set - Nordstrom Anniversary Event

After the letdown of the MAC Illustrated Collection, I have decided to check out every product in the Nordstrom Event.  I am going to write up posts about my absolute favorite products in the collection and almost any product from NARS will go right up to the top of my shopping list.  As of right now, I can confidently state that NARS is my favorite makeup brand and I have been collecting their products at a constant rate for the past few months.  A new palette or set from this company will always catch my eye and the Love Rite Anniversary Set has done just that.

Nordstrom is the only retailer that will carry this set so if you love NARS the way that I do, then you will want to order this set very soon.  I am so excited to see that this set contains two small lip glosses in shades that I currently don't own.  I would buy the set just for the lip glosses but there is an added bonus that the rest of the products in the set are great too.  I love the Trio Eye Shadow in this set also and therefore this might be my favorite offering from the whole Event.

"Prepare for shimmering sophistication that's both modern and timeless.  Beautiful bronzed and neutral hues for eyes pair perfectly with sheer and sparkling lip glosses as well as the coveted NARS Illuminator for a lit-from-within, radiant glow.  Set includes Trio Eye Shadow in Calanque, deluxe-size Illuminator in Orgasm, deluxe-size Lip Gloss in Turkish Delight, and deluxe-size Lip Gloss in Roman Holiday."

A few more product details from Nordstrom...

Trio Eye Shadow - Same long-wearing, crease-resistant formula as the Single and Duo Eye Shadows, in a series of uniquely grouped color combinations.  Worn together or alone, all eye shadows can be applied sheer or built up for more dramatic effect.  All powder eye shadows can be used wet to create a 'cake' eyeliner effect.
- Calanque - pale champagne/light warm tan/medium bronze

Illuminator - NARS Illuminators light the skin from within.  A collection of light-reflecting liquids that glides on to refresh and enhance the complexion to create a shimmering incandescence.  Go gorgeously nude with pinky-peach Orgasm or up the ante with Super Orgasm's extra-golden glow.  Highlight with pearlescent Copacabana and bring out the bronze with sun-kissed Laguna.  Wear them alone, pair them with makeup, or caress your decollete.  Deceptively sheer, decidedly luminous.  Magically transform your skin from ordinary to extraordinary.
- Orgasm - pinky-peach with gold shimmer

Lip Gloss - Serious shine and sexy color.  Extremely wearable and versatile color may be worn alone or over any other lip product for more drama.
- Turkish Delight - pink sorbet
- Roman Holiday - light pink

I love the lip gloss shades in this set, both of them are part of the permanent collection however I don't own either of them.  And I want both of them enough to buy them on their own at Sephora, I am so excited that I can purchase them together along with the rest of the great products in this set.  The Trio Eye Shadow will work very well for me all year long and this will become a staple of my makeup collection, I can make these shades work with so many others that I own.  I have never tried the Illuminators from this company but have been curious about how they work.  Being able to try the Illuminator is an added bonus with this set since I already would purchase it for the rest of the products and shades that are contained in it.

This set is my top choice from the Anniversary Event and will be the product that I order first!
