love NARS… hate the shipping

How many of you beauties use NARS products? François Nars knows how to make a girl squeal with his skin perfecting complexion products and intensely pigmented blushes (more bang for your buck)… But ordering online is such a hassle and … Continue reading

spring time collective haul (pt3)

Alright so here’s the final installment of this semi massive collective haul.

Purchase includes Buxom, Smashbox,and MAC.

 

I hadn’t tried any Smashbox items. I think I had a sample of the primer but never used it. I wasn’t very interested in what they were selling. Not sure why, but I just didn’t care for their products. I guess that’s until I spotted their under eye BB cream. This shade is “Medium.”

I don’t get why they call it that, to me just seems like any other liquid concealer. But anywho…it caught my eye so I picked it up.

It works well, gives me a nice refreshed look, doesn’t crease like crazy (although I have a deep set line under both my eyes, everything seeps into that crease), and it lasts. I like it!

Buxom was another brand I hadn’t try anything from. But I’d randomly come across this foundation, so of course I had to try it.
This weightless foundation can easily be compared to a BB cream or tinted moisturizer. I’d even compare it to a face and body foundation. Think MAC, MUFE has much better coverage.
This will be covered when I bring back my foundation review series.

spring time collective haul (pt 2)

On to the second installment of my collective haul…

This time we have a few products from NARS and Bobbi Brown.

First up NARS…

 

Maybe 2 or 3 months ago he released the contour/highlight blush duos. I picked up Gienah. As you can see, the highlight shade will not work as a highlight for me, you can hardly see it, but contour will be great. So if you’re about a New Guinea or deeper in NARS foundation shades, this highlight may work for you.
But idk about this one, the highlight could end up looking ashy. So try before you buy!
I may have been able to get away with Paloma. Ah well, this works. Contouring is one of my fav things about makeup.
