We recently ran a blockbuster NARS Facebook sweepstakes with a prize of $300 worth of NARS products. Pretty amazing, right? Perhaps more fun, though, was going to the first NARS store to pick everything up for the very lucky winner, Sherry Barnes. The four of us (Eric, Molly, Lorelei, and myself) trooped down to the newly opened cosmetics outpost in the West Village to hand-pick makeup for Barnes. She described her favorite makeup colors as “natural to light earth tones,” so scouted out the perfect products for her. After a good thirty minutes (and having examined just about every product and hue they had on offer), we checked out with a stellar goodie basket that Sherry is sure to love. Click through to see exactly what we picked up and be sure to tell us what you think of our product selection!
Like any good group on a mission, we took an arrival picture. (Big thanks to Lorelei for pointing at the store, otherwise we might have missed it.)
Diligently examining all the lip colors.
The store is only a single very chic room, so it must be a madhouse on the weekends.
A proper departure picture, Molly is showing off all the colors she tried on her hand as well as her new complimentary NARS 413 Bleecker tote.
Here is the breakdown of Sherry’s fabulous prize. How many of you are jealous?
