I preamble to the NARS counter and ask "Could you match me for NARS sheer glow" and she replies "Yeah but it will take 15 minutes though" so I agreed.
She sat me down and said she needed to take off my non existent makeup to check my skin and she said have I used NARS products before and I said no so she told me the history which I know as I do my research. Then she gave me this spiel about NARS's skin care being amazing.
So first she used a cleanser which was grand then she proceeded to use a liquid exfoliator which I thought was a bit much and then she put on a really thick moisturiser and lots of it, it just felt like a thick layer, which she didn't blend properly. Then applied a primer.Then applied Mont Blonc foundation, concealerand then Copa Cobana as a highlight, then orgasm blush and then a powder.
Now I asked for none of this I asked for a colour match and I got a load of crap on my face. Ok granted I could have said no to the 15 minute application but I didn't know what it in tailed. I just felt really awkward to leave without buying the 39 euro foundation. And to be honest I didn't know whether I wanted the foundation as I didn't know what was the true nature of it so I asked for a sample and she said she couldn't give me one. I really wanted one as there was so much crap on my face that I didn't even know if it was good.
My face looked really greasy and I don't know whether that was the moisturiser or the foundation.
It's really expensive and I don't want to waste my money on something that doesn't work for me. I don't really know what to do but I know I wont get help from my local counter!
