The Christopher Kane for NARS Collection

The Christopher Kane for NARS Collection

The new Christopher Kane for NARS Collection for summer 2015 features some “neoneutral” shades. These colors were inspired by neon colors and the nude shades that pair well with them.

The collection is limited edition and features two Illuminating Multiples, four Lip Glosses, three Eyeshadows (a single and a duo) and two Blushes. Everything here might look super bright and intense but it’s actually all sheer yet colorful. There is lots of pretty iridescent glitter in many of the items as well.

NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation

NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation

You know how sometimes things just don’t work out the way you had planned? Well that was my experience with the new NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation.

I had heard such good things about this foundation so when I was last at Sephora I decided to give her a whirl. I was all excited about it because it’s been awhile since I bought a foundation. I hardly ever wear actual foundation anymore, usually it’s a BB Cream, so I was hoping this would get me back into the foundation groove.

Here is some official info about the formula from their site:

Full, natural-looking coverage with unexpectedly weightless, 16-hour wear. Highly pigmented and perfectly balanced, this breakthrough formula builds and blends effortlessly with just one drop—the result of exclusive innovation uniquely designed to deliver long-wearing full coverage, weightlessly. Shake, pump and blend in sections for complete coverage that’s completely natural looking. Weightless Long-wear Technology delivers up to 16 hours of wear, while always feeling light-as-air. Featuring advanced flexible polymers and first-to-market treated pigments.

  • Advanced flexible polymers move with the skin, providing extraordinary breathability and comfort.
  • First-to-market treated pigments weightlessly deliver long-wearing, complete coverage without ever masking for perfected, natural-looking skin.

 Even Tone Technology is designed to instantly neutralize redness and dullness, while working long-term to reduce the appearance of discoloration for more even, uniform skin.

  • Gold and green pigments in a perfect 4-to1 ratio optically manipulate how light reflects off skin’s surface, evening the complexion for instant luminosity. Green pigments negate redness on contact, while gold combats dullness.
  • Scarlet Spiderling Root Extract helps reduce the appearance of discoloration and reveal brighter, more even skin over time

NARS Audacious Lipstick in Anna and Raquel

NARS Audacious Lipstick in Anna and Raquel

It seems like every time I go to Sephora I pick up a new NARS Audacious Lipstick or two. This last time I went I got Anna and Raquel. I’ve written about these here and here and I really love them!

There are around 30 shades or so at Sephora and I want practically all of them. But they are rather pricey at $32.00 each, so I try and limit myself. But it’s hard! I love these so much because they are incredibly creamy and soooo pigmented. They just might be my current favorite lipstick on earth. They are that good. I also love the magnetic closure and the embossed NARS on them.

Friday Favorites: Lip Pencils

My Favorite Lip Pencils

It’s finally Friday again so I have my Friday Favorites for you again (previously just called “My Favorites”) and this time it’s my favorite current lip pencils. Was that enough “f’s” for you?

I’ve pretty much been partial to lip pencils since age 16 when I discovered my first bright red. I cannot remember the brand, but I know it was some super cheap pencil that I found at a drugstore. I wore that red constantly, despite the fact that it was super drying. I also vividly remember that I didn’t have a fat pencil sharpener at the time, so I would either use a knife or my fingernails to peel back the wood to expose more of the product. Oh yeah, I needed that red on my lips badly, haha!

Luckily now most brands have lip pencils out and they are much better than back in the 80’s. Oh, I also finally have a great sharpener for them (the Urban Decay one is my favorite.) 😉

NARS Angelika Lip Gloss

NARS Lip Gloss in Angelika recently became yet another pink lip gloss shade I simply could not live without.

There are about 30 shades in this line now, which were reformulated for a summer 2014 release. There were 7 news shades, some of which I reviewed here. Angelika is one of the older, but newly reformulated shades.
