NARS Audacious Lipstick for Fall 2014


A new line of NARS lipsticks? Sign me up! I’ve just started getting cozy with Schiap but I don’t think she’d mind a new friend. Or two. Or three. Okay, maybe like 5. I can’t help myself! I’ve been checking out the swatches on Makeup and Beauty Blog and Temptalia and the line up is pretty darn impressive. The color range is crazy extensive and the formula sounds like it’ll be a hit too! NARS claims the new Audacious Lipsticks “delivers an intense, full coverage finish in a single stroke with nutrient rich ingredients known to smooth, moisturize and volumize.” Excuse me while I swoon.


Manicure Monday!


I was just starting to get ready for bed when I realized I hadn’t uploaded a Manicure Monday post yet. Whoops! There’s still a little bit of Monday left right? This week, I’m rocking a bright, summery mint polish (totally forgot the name) with a little bit of Deborah Lippmann Stairway to Heaven glitter polish. I’ve been trying my best to take a break from glitter and pink nails but it’s just so darn hard! What’s on your nails this week?

You know what I love about having brown eyes? So many different colors look great with them! I’ve rocked a lot of different colors but I always keep my blues and greens in rotation. There’s just something about them that makes brown eyes pop! I own quite a few green eyeliners but none of them make my eyes look as sultry as the Chanel Black Jade Le Crayon Kohl Intense Eye Pencil. Whew! That’s a really long name but bear with me!

Building a brush collection is like building an army. You want to pick the most efficient soldiers who can get the job done and hold up well over the years. I’m no stranger to affordable brushes but it’s good to splurge on the staples every now and then. Some higher end brands use more expensive materials and techniques to ensure that your favorite brush lasts you a lifetime. So wouldn’t you rather arm yourself with tools that’ll stick around?

Wouldn’t it be nice if we could pause time to do our makeup? Don’t get me wrong. I’m not trying to spend hours at my vanity but sometimes I do wish I could toss on an eyeshadow or two without rush. A girl can dream! Since we haven’t cracked the time pausing just yet I’ve been getting cozy with my bold eyeliner stash for a splash of color. I’m usually rocking blues or greens but the Marc Jacobs Jazz(Berry) Highliner Gel Crayon has me singing a different tune lately. Check it out!
