Nars Matte Multiple in ‘Exumas’

NARS Matte Multiple Exumas

I remember when Nars released their first round of Multiples. I was really into Orgasm blush back then – to this day it remains the only blush I’ve ever hit pan on. But I remember looking at the Orgasm Multiple and thinking, “holy glittercakes, Batman.”

Okay so maybe I didn’t really think that, but I never really found most of the original Multiples all that appealing because they are full of glitter. [Read more…]


Nicole by OPI ‘Find Your Passion’

Check out mah pudgy fingers~

With spring comes an influx of brights. In my post dedicated to those lil’ attention-grabbers, I mentioned that I don’t like to wear them on my fingers – only my toes. But for some reason – probs cause of an Essiebutton video – I was really feelin’ Bobbi Brown’s Nectar nail polish for spring. It’s a muted coral that isn’t super crazy bright.

Instead of going out and spending $17 on a nail polish I will only wear once, I decided I’d try to dupe it within my collection – shop my stash, if you will. This is what I came up with. [Read more…]

My First Sheet Mask Experience: The Face Shop

TheFaceShop Sheet masks

So the other day I was strolling through the mall, on my way out to the bus stop, when I saw that Fruits & Passion had been replaced by a new store called “The Face Shop”. I had just come from The Body Shop, so I was somewhat amused, but I didn’t think much of it until I saw one of the window displays.

Nars Dolce Vita Lipstick

NARS Dolce Vita

When I was looking for my MLBB shade with a helpful beauty advisor at Sephora, she had me try on Dolce Vita by Nars. I had never tried Nars lipstick – their bases and blushes are what they’re famous for, so I had never really bothered. But the shade was a really beautiful brown-pink that is super sheer but buildable. It wasn’t quite MLBB, but it stuck in my mind, and I would try it on every time I went to Sephora after that.

During the Murale gift with purchase event, I finally picked it up. And I’m glad I did. [Read more…]

March Favourites

March Faves

It’s favourites time again! Obligatory comment about not believing that March is already done: I can’t believe how fast March flew by! Really though, wasn’t it just New Year’s Eve, and we’re already in April? Creepy.

Anyhow, this month I discovered a lot of cool products. Here, let me ramble about them for a bit. Read more!
