NARS Despair Cheek Palette Swatches

NARS Fantascene Despair Cheek Palette

A lot of brands went all out with their holiday collections this year but I think NARS took the cake. The makeup genius teamed up with the high-profile fashion photographer, Steven Klein, to create a limited edition collection filled with beautiful sets, palettes and more. There were a lot of tempting pieces (I mean a lot) but I really had my eye on the Despair Cheek Palette.

Laura Mercier Blush & Glow Radiant Face Trio Review

Laura Mercier Blush & Glow Radiant Face Trio

I’ve learned two important lessons this holiday season. First lesson, Sephora’s Holiday Reward Cards are really dangerous. I ended up getting almost everything that was on my list and I don’t even regret it. Second lesson, swatches can really be deceiving.

I knew well before the Holiday Reward Cards went out that I’d be using mine to finally order the beautiful Laura Mercier Blush & Glow Radiant Face Trio. It’s a gorgeous cheek palette with sophisticated abstract animal print packaging and 3 of Laura Mercier’s favorite products to bring warmth and color to the face for the perfect sunny glow all year round.

MAC Faerie Whispers Collection Haul & Swatches

MAC Faerie Whispers Pearl Sunshine Beauty Powder, Cheek Pollen Blush

Have you ever developed brand loyalty after getting into makeup? I kinda did. Once I felt I was getting the hang of things I thought it was time to upgrade from the drugstore stuff and start taking trips to the MAC counter. Then I got hooked. I found myself wanting to try every new product and grab something (or everything) from every new collection. Now, I like to branch out a little more and get to know other brands but MAC still catches my eye here and there.

NYX HD Blush Swatches

NYX Pink the Town, Intuition, Amber HD Blush

Lipstick will always be my first love but every now and then I’m reminded of just how much I love other makeup goodies. Like blush. Earlier this year, blush was purely optional as I was almost always forgetting to put some on or just skipping it altogether in a rush. Now that it’s getting colder and I could use a little more color I’m all about blush. I just can’t get enough of it!

Too Faced Your Love Is King Love Flush Blush Review

Too Faced Your Love Is King Love Flush Blush

There comes a time in every makeup junkie’s life when she finds herself stuck in a rut. This year, I’ve been in a serious blush rut. At first, I wasn’t wearing blush because I was almost always rushing to get ready for work. Once I started giving myself more time, all I reached for was natural blushes that just offered a little warmth or the slightest wash of color. Not nearly enough for my deep chocolatey complexion all of the time. I need some color!
