NARS & Sephora Haul

Nars, Nars, Nars... what an amazing company! Their products, from the packaging to the actual content it is AHHHHH-mazing!

Something not so amazing?...the price tag! However, every once in a while I'll let myself splurge on things that I've been eyeing for a while, case in point: Cactus Flower. What a beauty!!

Also I am super impressed with the Sephora Double Contour Cream Blushes!!

 Enjoy the pictures!

Uhmmm.... EXCITEMENT!!! The best collection in a very long time! I am obsessed wit every single product. If you are not much of a reader and more of a picture person, well I have a video on it, (videos: pictures on steroids) so you can go ahead and watch it here:
(not the cutest thumbnail :/.... I know)

Anyways here are some pictures of the things I got, and one that I returned and exchange for other things!

  • Creme Blush in : Optimistic Orange
  • Creme Blush in: Florida

Florida Blush:

Optimist Orage:

(left: florida, right: optimistic orange)

  • Quick Sizzle Lipstick
Quick Sizzle (MATTE):

 Here I compared the Quick Sizzle Lipstick (which is a Matte Finish) to two other similar things from MAC I have.

(left: Impassioned Lipstick, warmer and more orange. Center: Quick Sizzle Lipstick, right: Magenta Lip Liner, more purple and cooler tone.)

  • Shop & Drop Palette

Swatches: from L to Right: Sugar Snack (M), Hypnotizing (F), Power Boosted (VXP), Shop & Drop (S)

Here I compared Hypnotizing to Satin Taupe which look fairly similar in the pan but on the skin you can see that Satin Taupe is warmer and has more brown in it.

  • Crushed Metal Pigments  (the only thing I got from the Vera Collection, but I returned)

Pink Patch Metal Pigments:

So I returned the Crushed Metal Pigments but of course I managed to do a little photoshoot of me (and my ferret) sporting all 4 pigments on my eyes, cheeks and lips (mixed with vaseline)

 I know this is not my most flattering picture, but my ferret Boots looks so cute I couldn't help myself!

I exchanged the pigments for another palette, the Color Added Palette (shown above)
Here is another photoshoot of one look I created using the palette, I'll have an upcoming tutorial showing you how to recreate this and another look.!

Color Added Palette: 

From Left to Right: Laundry Daze (S), Colour Added (VXP), Pre-Packaged (VXP) Self-Serve (S)

I went to walk my dog Abbie wearing Scan-Delicious Kissable Lip Colour and Optimistic Orange on my cheeks, little bit of mascara and Bam! Out the Door, it was very early in the morning (as you can tell by the look on my face) but I loved the combo.

BLUE Me Away: A tutorial

Blue Me Away, is a title inspired by one of my favorite nail polishes with the same name. I love the color BLUE, it is my ultimate favorite, and that is the inspiration for this tutorial.

Although this look would be beautiful on anyone, I do think it suits best people with Brown Eyes. So if you have brown eyes I would love for you to try it out and let me know how this works out for you.

Also, I used mainly the best product of 2011,at least in my opinion, which is the TOO Faced Sweet Dreams Palette, which is exclusive for Sephora. If you haven't checked it out, you can visit and old post from my blog or go into Sephora and swatch the palette yourself you will die and go to heaven right there and then.

 Products Used:
