I had been on the search for the perfect white eyeliner for my waterline and this is it. Usually white liners make my eyes water, I don't know why, but this one doesn't. This sticks to my waterline and lasts all day. Very pigmented, too.
I got this because UDPP wasn't cutting it for me anymore and making shimmery e/s look frosty. This makes shimmery e/s look shimmery and exactly the way they look in the pan. Makes my shadows look smooth and last all day long. No creasing or fading. I don't even use my UDPP anymore. This is all I need! You get so much product and I know the pot will last me a long time, cause a little goes a long way.
Beautiful duo! One side has a greyish green with shimmer and the other side is a cream color with a hint of light green to it with shimmer. This looks best over a base rather than a primer. At first I thought I didn't like the light side, but once I applied over a base it looked way better and the same as in the pan. The colors look beautiful paired together. The light side all over lid and the dark on the crease. These are perfect for a neutral smokey look. I ordered this online and when I got it I wasn't disappointed. I'm very happy I got this!
I'm very picky about my reds, and this one I hated. It's too dark. I found it to be more brown than red. It's a muddy color. I ordered this online and the description was misleading. So when I first opened it I was very disappointed. Even more when I put it on. I returned It the same day.
Palettes -NARS - Day and Night palette (Sephora holiday 2009)

I had been lemming this palette since I first saw it during the holidays. I saw the Sephora site still carries it so I finally got it early last month. I'm so happy I got it. It has 2 shades in it I really wanted, Cleo and Fathom, plus a few extras. I gave it a 4 cause these colors don't all work together, but I do love them separately. I especially like fathom. SOO pretty. The price was great. If you were to get the singles of these they would cost $22 each. Or if I would have gotten the Cleo duo It would have been $32. So I'm happy about that part. I love this palette.
Skincare - Body -NARS - Body Glow/ Monoi Glow II Set

Loooove this scent! Smells exotic and sexy. When I wear these oils I feel like I'm on vacation. I gave this a 4 because the shimmer oil isn't as shimmery as I thought it would be. It's actually very very light. I wish it was more shimmery so that gorgeous bronze color It seemed like it would be would show up.
Gorgeous true red. If It wasn't I would have returned It, lol. I like my reds bright and this is bright. Pigmentation is great, glides on smoothly, smells great, and lasts a long time. Even through drinking and eating. Finish is semi-matte.
This is a beautiful lavender with gold shimmer. I loved it at first glance because I thought it was such a creative color. I love how It's a cool color, paired with warm shimmer. Looks great on. So pretty. Very pigmented and blendable. With or without primer. I even like it applied lightly. I like pairing this with a peach blush.
This duo is HOT. HOT, HOT, HOT. One side has a purple with a hint of fuschia to it and dark blue shimmer, the other is a black with a hint of grey and colorful shimmer. Paired together they look friggin hot! I threw this in my shopping basket the moment I saw it. Well, I didn't actually *throw* it, it would have broke, but you know what I mean:P. This is smokey and bold all in one. The color you see in the pan is the color you get. If I don't feel like wearing primer I don't have to, It's so so so pigmented. It's insane how pigmented these are. Ugh, I can't get over how sexy this duo is. I'm gonna go to back flips now.
Sexy is the perfect word to describe this color. Makes my eyes look sexy and mysterious. Described on Sephora site as a black with green shimmer, but once applied It's just a deep, dark, smokey green. Stunning color. Fantastic pigmentation, I only use a little at a time. So this will last very long. Looks great whether I apply with or without primer. Color stays true all day.
GORGEOUS duo. One side is a light classy gold that is perfect for nude eyes, and the other side is a bright exotic orange with gold shimmer. I had to have this the moment I saw it. I didn't even think about it. Both of these colors look perfect together. I'm so glad they were paired together. I feel SO sexy when I wear this. The gold side even looks sexy by itself. I especially like it under my brows with just eyeliner. The pigmentation is fabulous. The color you see in the pan is the color you get on your eyes. Lasts all day, color stays true. If I don't feel like priming my lids I don't need to, since this is so pigmented.
Love this red!! This is a little tiny bit on the brick side. A little darker and not as bright as I'm normally used to. The formula is semi-matte. Just a hint of a sheen. I love it. I'm wearing it atm and it still looks as good as when I first applied it many hours ago. The sheen is gone but the color is still true. I love the formula, It glides on easily and is pigmented. I apply a lot since I love the way it glides so I just apply and apply, lol. Smells nice, a light vanilla scent. Doesn't come with as much product as It should for the price, though.
Lips -NARS - Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Dragon Girl
soniawonia 6/1/2010 12:24:00 AM
Beautiful color. One of my favs. Bright cherry red. This is a true matte which I'm really happy about. Usually when a product is labeled as matte I'm skeptical, cause a lot of the time it turns out to be semi-matte with a sheen to it. This has the texture of a l/l. If you've ever filled in your lips with a l/l, that's exactly how this looks and feels. The only downside is the price, because you don't get much product for the price. The pencil looks long at first, but quickly wears down every time you sharpen. By like a lot. So I gave this a 2 for packaging.
Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous! THE perfect fuschia lippie. Bold and makes a statement. Not for the faint of heart! I pair this with either very neutral eyes or just mascara, since It stands out so much on It's own. The formula is great, very pigmented, glides on easily, and semi-matte. Not drying at all. Great staying power. Doesn't fade on me even after drinking and eating. Once it fades hours later, It fades evenly. I love how It smells, too. The packaging is sexy, with the same rubber finish as the rest of their packaging. It better be sexy for the price. Doesn't come with as much product as MAC lippies do, though. I wear it with WnW Fabulous fuschia l/l.
These are my go to highlighters. I don't use them as blush since they're pretty much colorless, I use them over my matte blushes for a little glow. I don't find them glittery. They look look shimmery on me. I feel glamorous when I have this product on. I even use as e/s. Looks great! Only use a little though, since It is a highlighter. I don't know why Its called a blush duo since there's no color to them. So I just refer to these as highlighters. I only wear it on special occasions when I want that extra oomph.
