Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer in Ginger

Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer in Ginger

I can't live without concealer. I'm not the sort of person that can't go out the door without makeup. I've lived without makeup for most of my life but just adding concealer makes a massive difference to my appearance. That's actually how I started looking into makeup because I wanted to hide my horrendous dark circles. It took me a lot of trial and error to find a combination that really works for me. I have a very pigmented under eye situation with all sorts of colours running through. I also have very deep…Read more
Guide to Berry Lips

Guide to Berry Lips

If you are uncomfortable around an excessive amount of lipsticks, please retreat! This post is only for the brave! I'm hoping, that this post will help you pick out or discover colours you'd like for your fall/autumn/winter looks. Now I don't strictly follow seasonal trends but overall, I thought this post would be helpful to discover berry toned lipsticks (and other lip products). We're gonna work in three parts here.   Part One : Just Give Me Lipsticks To Look At Umm... ok. Here you go.     Part Two : I Don't…Read more

It's time for the monthly favourites. There are a couple of new and old items here. I was way into my Mac lipsticks last month especially Girl About Town!         01. Nail Polish : Max Factor : Fantasy Fire Have I not raved about this polish enough? Click and see the review for some duochrome awesomeness.   02. Nail Polish : China Glaze : Fast Track I love this neutral polish. The formula, the gold shimmers, it's perfect.   03. Blush : Nars : Douceur I'm going back to some…Read more
Nars Blush in Deep Throat

Nars Blush in Deep Throat

Nars blushes are a weakness for me! I got this particular one in a giftset and it's a very flattering shade. Nars Deep Throat is light peachy pink powder blush with gold shimmer. Deep Throat and Orgasm come from the same "peachy pink with gold" family but Deep Throat is a lot lighter. It's more pink whereas Orgasm is more peachy. This also has less sheen and shimmer than Orgasm. If you ever found Orgasm to be a bit too shimmery, you might prefer this one. The warm pink tone with gold shimmer…Read more
Nars Blush in Taj Mahal

Nars Blush in Taj Mahal

You know I have a soft spot for Nars blushes, but this one is actually my least used blush. I bought this when, like everyone else, I was having an orange phase. This seemed like the perfect blush for it. Nars Blush in Taj Mahal is a powder blush in orange with gold shimmer. When you blend it, you can really spot a nice gold sheen across it. It's more of a yellowy-orange than a reddish one. I do really like the colour, it can seem too much for a neutral everyday look…Read more

October 2013 Favourites

I lot have a lot of different favourites this month, I'm mostly using stuff I've already shown before. But these are some everyday or occasion pieces I've enjoyed using the past month. Hope you all had a great Diwali! ^_^       01. Moisturiser : Clarins : HydraQuench Cream I love how rich and soft this makes my skin. It's perfect for winters and will last me all the way. It also smells lovely.   02. Blush : Nars : Deep Throat The less shiny and peachy Orgasm. It gives a subtle…Read more
Nars Sheer Glow Foundation in Syracuse

Nars Sheer Glow Foundation in Syracuse

Until recently, this has been my 'perfect' and go-to foundation. Nars Sheer Glow Foundation aims to give a dewy and natural finish. It adapts well to the texture of the skin and suits dry skin peeps like me. I have this in the shade Syracuse. If you're NC40-42 then Syracuse or Stromboli would be good matches. Nars has an excellent shade range, so hopefully you can find a good match. I specifically wanted a foundation that is easy to wear, doesn't feel heavy and can photograph well. That means no spf! I always…Read more
Nars Lovejoy Blush

Nars Lovejoy Blush

On one of my starwberryNet hauls, I picked  up the Nars blush Lovejoy. It was colour I didn't have and I was anxious to see how it would turn out. I love blushes that have microshimmer in them, ones with a nice sheen. Matte blushes (many of them) look quite powdery on me and ones with sheen I can get away with a nice subtle colour. Lovejoy is brick red but still orange can of colour. Another way of describing it would be red brown but with fine gold microshimmer. It casts a…Read more
Nars Orgasm Nail Polish

Nars Orgasm Nail Polish

I rarely go for very high end nail polishes. I'm quite happy in my China Glaze, OPI, Zoya circle. But when I saw the Nars Orgasm nail polish shade, I knew I hadn't seen this shade anywhere and I desperately wanted it! The colour as I said, has incredible depth and is very pretty indeed. It's a soft peachy pink with gold microshimmer and sheen. The shimmer isn't dense which gives it the delicate gold sheen sort of look. The polish itself its sheer so you can add one coat for just a…Read more
