My obsession with designer makeup with REAL. I got completely sucked into buying more things I don’t need at the makeup counter yet again. Shocking absolutely nobody. Thanks, NARS Soho. xo
I also did a drug-store make-up haul recently at Target, which I’ll post about later this week – product reviews and how they compare to the “real deal.”
Have been completely lusting over these new purchases though!
NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in “Roman Holiday.” Also comes as a Sheer Lipstick. Perfect shade of light pink. Great for daytime use. Grade = A, love the coverage, great for layering with a sheer or pink hued lip gloss over top.
“The application of a lipstick combined with the convenience of a pencil in a jumbo crayon design. Lips are instantly saturated with rich pigments and a velvety matte finish. The long lasting, non-drying formula is enriched with emollients for a creamy texture, while a combination of unique silicones ensures long-lasting, seamless color for hours. Use for lining, all-over lip color, or pairing with another lip product.”
NARS The Multiple in “Riviera”
Beautiful color, adds just a little bit of color to the cheeks, even added above my eyes as referred by Maria, the makeup artist in the store. Grade: A+, incorporated this into everyday wear.
“François Nars’ iconic innovation, the original multi-purpose stick for eyes, cheeks, lips and body. Its unique creamy formula and sheer color blends effortlessly to create shimmering accents, contours or dynamic highlights on all skin tones. Apply with fingers: the skin’s warmth allows for perfect blending.”
Essie “Spaghetti Strap”
Grade: A. This is a fabulous pink shade for your neutral nails. Great for any time of year. Perfect if your job doesn’t allow you to have bright colored nails, very subtle shade. Great look for interviews and it’s great for long-wear because you never see chips on neutrals like this.
“hot summer nights call for a breezy dress, strappy sandals and lovely, sheer pink peony nails. romantic manicures and perfect pedicures begin with this delicately hued nail lacquer.”
Simple, natural nails & lips. Great for Spring 2014 for “to the office” chic or weekend afternoons.
