Absolutely beautiful copper flakes. Very shimmery and intense. It adheres to my skin very well. I tap a small amount over either tan or copper metal pigment and line wet w/cocoa beach. Perfect bronze and sparkle combo.
A true sunflower yellow. It has great staying power. Unfortunately, it stained my skin a bit.
Kitchmas is a very beautiful light lilac filled w/tons of sparkle. It looks gorgeous worn as a highlighter over a darker purple or lavender shade. I personally think that it looks just like NARS Night Flight.
As crazy as I am for NARS, I really did not like this lip gloss. It was way toooo glittery and soo thin. It showed up on me as just a plain glittery gloss.
I am a MMM w/olive undertones. This color blends in smoothly and disappears into my skin. When the MA tried it on me, I was thinking, "Nah, it's way too light." Little did I know that it would just "melt" into my skin. This is easier to blend than LM Oil free Vanilla b/c it's not as thick. The only downside to NARS is that I wish it included a pump like my LM foundation.
Finally gave into my lemming and purchased my first lacquer. It looks so pretty in the pot. A shimmery cool lilac. Little did I know that it literally smells like poop. It does have very good lasting power b/c it's very sticky. I find that if I leave the cap off for a while, the smell slowly disappears.
Sunset Stripe was my first NARS gloss. It is perfect for medium skin tone gals. It is peachy orange w/lots of shimmer. Like a tangerine!! Unfortunately, there is no staying power. After about an hour, I had to reapply. I love Nars packaging, but these suckers leak. After a few uses, the goo was all over the seams of the tube. Hopefully, they will re-design the tubes. It's such a waste for to see my beautiful color squished all over the place.
I LOVE my NARS. I just purchased this today and am wondering, Why oh why did I wait so long? This is one of the smoothest and silkiest powders I have ever used. It come in a great rubber square w/a sifter and a mesh screen AND and velour puff to boot!! Not bad for $30. Eden is perfect for my MMM olive skin tone. It is a nude color w/ no pink or peach tones to it. It blends in beautifully and doesn't look chalky. I was worried that it would change color on me, but the MA told me that all of the loose powders are translucent.
This duo is a great staple. Great for natural contouring of the eyes and even the nose.
One word, GREASY!! These pencils smear all over and when I used the black one, it seems like I had two black eyes. Even the MA told me that she never suggests these pencils b/c they are extremely greasy. I can only see using these as bases for powder e/s.
Ah one of the new duos. A shimmery nude paired with a flat greyish purple. I haven't figured out how to pair these colors yet. Will update when I get more application tips.
I finally got this duo today and I'm soo glad that I did. I always passed it up b/c it looks so dull and boring. I played with this color for nearly 10 minutes before finally deciding on it. It is quite sheer, but can be layered for a more dramatic look. I use the light blue as a wash and then smudge the dove grey from lash up to crease. I then line my eyes w/the grey shadow wet. Voila, beautiful smokey eyes. Perfect for daytime b/c the colors are not extreme.
Black with pink/fushia glitter. Again, these black night shadows are very pigmented. I use a very light hand and blend the color from lash to just above crease. I then use it wet and smudge it into my lashline and very lightly underneath as well. I really enjoy the night shadows.
My first thought when I saw this duo was "Ugh, orange shimmer on the eyes?" Little did I know that it was a little hidden surprise. These colors are gorgeous. Shimmery burnt orange and shimmer nude go hand in hand. Perfect for summer.
Very beautiful black/green w/tons of very minute green shimmer. Perfect for a smokey green look.
