Ever have one of those where you think, “yah, that’s right. I’m rockin’ it today.” I’m kidding. Well, okay, sort of. I have to admit I felt quite good on this day — thanks to Rimmel’s Colour Rush Balm and Hourglass Ambient blush. This combination of bright pinks did wonders for the winter blahs I’ve been feeling. Putting on such bright colours added life to my face, and somewhat uplifted my soul. Yes, makeup can do that for me.
The snow does not seem to want to melt in my part of the world, but that hasn’t stopped me from wearing more Spring-like makeup. Here’s one of my go-to looks lately: black eyeliner paired with glossy lips.
MAC’s Extra Dimension collection came out right after Christmas, and I have to admit, I didn’t pay much attention. Over the years, I have had to force myself not to pay attention as it seemed I was spending loads of money on every Limited Edition collection MAC released. But a week or so ago, something struck a chord with me with this collection. I read reviews, watched vloggers and I suddenly felt compelled to have two blushes from the collection: Autoerotique* and Pleasure Model. I’m glad I caved in because these are amazing. If you are a blush fan, you need to run, and I mean run to your local MAC counter and investigate.
Hello lovelies. Let’s talk blush today, shall we? NARS blush, in particular. I’ve been a big, and I mean Julia Roberts/Pretty Woman “Big”, fan of NARS blush. There isn’t a week when I don’t reach for a NARS blush. So, when I heard the company was releasing four, yes, four new Limited Edition blushes as part of its Final Cut Collection*, I was more than a little excited.I was able to preview the four blushes: New Attitude, Love, Final Cut, and Sex Fantasy. After a week or so of wearing around, I have some advice: you just might need to pay a visit to your NARS counter to do a little swatching. Yes, indeed. These are definitely worth a look.
Guys, I think I’m in blush love. It’s Day Dream*, a Limited Edition blush from NARS’ Guy Bourdin Holiday Collection. It’s peachy, it’s pink, and it’s gorgeous.
Wearing this makes me want to break into spontaneous singing. Even on the most ‘blah-est’ of days, this brings such a beautiful glow to the cheeks. Happy, happy. While it may seem more like a spring/summer type of colour, I find this works equally well with darker vampy lipsticks or smokey eyes/nude lip combos.Continue Reading
