More Nars & other porn...


Posted by Colleen Shirazi, Tuesday, January 01, 2008 12:30 AM (Eastern)

Happy New Year!

I'm not exactly sure what attracts me to Nars. I seldom feel like buying a lot of it...because...I just don't. It's well to be judicious about an expensive brand; a few carefully-chosen items from such a brand will be cheaper, over the long run, than quantities of less expensive makeup, even at a lower overall cost: the better stuff works better. But you will lose that edge if you acquire many expensive items. Then it becomes the same as buying masses of cheaper stuff, except...you'll be way more broke.

And yet...I really like Nars porn. (There are some other brands there too, such as YSL, Bobbi Brown, Majorica Majorca, et cetera.) There's something a bit touching about someone carefully setting out their Nars and taking tender photographs of it. If I'm honest I'll admit I don't like makeup porn in general, only Nars (and you will note I don't link to makeup porn in general).

Anyhow enough preamble, bring it on!

Yeah sometimes you can feel the love. :D

MAC porn tends to be prosaic, practical, like a picture of...wrenches. It's great if you need a wrench. But Nars porn has that odd intimate feel to it. I'm not sure there is such a thing as an objective photograph of Nars.

It's not the cost; Chanel porn is just as wrench-like as MAC imo.
