Lipstick -NARS - Velvet Matte Lip Pencil - Damned

I love the color. It's wine colored and with my skin tone I don't do reds but this color is beautiful and flattering. Plus goes on smooth and lasts all day

Lipstick -NARS - Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Walkyrie

on 5/26/2017 6:57:00 PM


Got this at the impulse stand at Sephora and oh my goodness. I've received many compliments on the color. Plus it lasts all day. No need for reapplication. Doesn't dry out my lips which I appreciate greatly. Smooth texture. I've eaten with it on. And I love it. Will repurchase

Blush -NARS - Gaiety

on 5/26/2017 4:27:00 PM


I buy nearly every blush NARS releases without really researching it first. So I was a little worried Gaiety would be too close to Desire, which I also own. Fortunately they're different enough to warrant purchasing both (if you wear lots of pink or are a NARS blush fiend like I am). Gaiety looks like an almost neon bubble gum pink in the pan but blends beautifully once applied - it's bright on my NC 15-20 skin but not obnoxious. As for how it compares to Desire, Gaiety is brighter and cooler, whereas Desire is more of a true hot pink. Both have the same smooth, not chalky, matte texture. The only reason I gave this 4 out of 5 is because I don't think it's all that unique - you could probably find a similar, if not identical, shade in another line. I just prefer NARS blush because I know I won't be disappointed with the quality. Overall it's a nice buy if you want a cool-toned pink blush to brighten up your complexion.

Lipstick -NARS - Velvet Matte Lip Pencil - Cruella

on 5/26/2017 4:08:00 PM


I love the matte finish of this. I have other reds that are sheers or glossy but this is my go to for matte red lips and I feel it would be flattering on anyone. It stays put and I find that I rarely have to reapply. My boyfriend used to not like red lips until I started wearing this and he changed his mind lol. It doesn't feel dry either, at least not to me. If my lips are feeling dry before I put this one, I will put on a tiny bit of lip balm and then put this on but for the most part, I can use this without any balm underneath. I might purchase this again but I like trying new things so I may find another one that I want to try. But I'm loving this while I have it.

Concealers -NARS - Radiant Creamy Concealer

on 5/25/2017 12:54:00 PM


This is one expensive little concealer especially when it doesn't work.

I first purchased this in Vanilla but it was too dark and then went back for the Chantilly. Basically I purchased it for my under eye area and to brighten and cover any spots or flaws.

It didn't matter how I applied this cream it ended up dry, cakey, covered nothing and accentuated wrinkles I didn't think I even had. Made me look like I had sleep boogers, not a look I recommend.

Very disappointed because the price point isn't cheap and I wasted cash on two very small tubes that I can do nothing with.

This is not as advertised, creamy and long lasting, it barely lasted an hour, if that. I had to go over it with my favourite concealer.

I will try to use it up as eye primer and I think this one is best for beautiful ladies with oily skin.
