Happy Mother’s Day! I know there’s a few amazing moms out there reading this and I just wanna remind you just how magical you are on your special day. It’s only right! I’ve been spending my day mostly relaxing (reading blogs and watching Sons of Anarchy on Netflix) but I also wanted to share with you some cute (and free!) NARS lipsticks I received for my birthday this year from Sephora.
If you’re not already a Beauty Insider, i suggest signing up! It’s completely free and there’s tons of perks just for being a member. Like the yearly birthday gifts Sephora hands out. They’re usually 2-3 deluxe sample size products that are pretty darn great. Last year’s set was a Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist Lipstick and Smoky Lash Mascara. This year, Beauty Insiders and Very Important Beauty Insiders (VIBs) received a NARS lipstick duo while VIB Rouge members also received a Larger Than Life Eyeliner as an added perk. As a completely free, no strings attached gift I have to say this year was an impressive one. For starters you get not just one but two NARS lipsticks in different formulas. Plus, they’re a pretty nice size. They’re definitely going to last a while!
First, you have Rikugien, a soft rose pink. It’s a Satin Lip Pencil (like Mandore) so it’s super creamy and combines the feel and comfort of a lightweight gloss with the pigmentation and staying power of a lipstick. I look forward to using it as an everyday lippie for work.
Then, you have Cruella, the fiery scarlet red Velvet Matte Lip Pencil that packs more of a punch. This thing is crazy pigmented! And the color is quite beautiful too! This is one of those classic reds that you’d pop in your purse for date night with the significant other. I bet it’d look amazing paired with my signature cat eye and Kiss Poise lashes!
