This was the birthday gift that I picked up from Sephora, of course I had to make another purchase so I thought I would try some of the Sephora foundation I've heard so much about. Anywho here are the swatches.

I'm re uploading this post from 2013 of my Nars Blush Collection because I've added a few more blushes that I wanted to include into this collection blog post. I now have a total of 13 Nars blushes total that I have in my collection now.

I've had plenty of time to test drive the NARS Smudge-Proof Eyeshadow Base because I received a sample (small tube in photo) inside a gift bag sometime ago. I didn't use it right away because I was so stuck on other brands, but it was time to try something new.
My eyebrows are very sparse so I had to have them very thinly tattooed, then I fill them in with brow pencils and powders to create the shape. It's imperative that I use some kind of base so my brows will stay on all day... imperative because I don't ever want to do a makeup check and see smudges on my brows... how awful would that look!

I've had my eyes on this Multiple from NARS ever since I've seen swatches. Multiples by NARS can be worn in several different ways, as bronzers, blushes, eye or lip colors, though I can't imagine anyone wearing these on their lips.
NaPali Coast is a very beautiful color. I would describe this multiple as a coppery/peach color with a slight metallic finish. This multiple has a duo tone blend that changes positions as the light directs itself onto the color.
I thought it would show up a little differently on me, but it's much lighter on my brown skin than I expected. This is the 3rd Multiple that I own and my favorite way to wear them is as a Blush.

Nars Follow Me was released in the 2013 Guy Bourdin Holiday Collection along with three other colors. I would describe it as a bright fuchsia with deep raspberry undertones. Nars refers to it as a deep fuchsia, but however described, it is a very beautiful color indeed.

There's something about Nars Blushes that I just can't get enough of. Whenever there's a new blush that comes out, I search all over the internet looking for swatches until I can find a swatch that comes pretty close to my complexion. I have a deep infinity for orange blushes and my collection is growing by the minute. I feel about orange the way most girls feel about pink. Pink blushes really don't show up on me all too well, unless they're a deep rose or fuchsia color and have darker pigmentation to them.

Nars Irresistiblement Bronzer is so very beautiful. It's almost the exact color of my skin and therefore when I tried to swatch it, it didn't show up on my arm. Sometimes I prefer wearing Bronzers as a setting powder instead of wearing a loose powder. I apply it all over my face for a very clean natural look. Since I looked up swatches before I ordered it to make sure there wasn't any shimmer, I knew I had to have it because it was an exact match for my complexion.

This Nars Outremer Eyeshadow is by far one of the prettiest eye shadows I've purchased from Nars thus far. This is also a matte eyeshadow and although I feel the vibrancy of the color is very pretty, I had to swatch it a couple of times on my arm to achieve the vibrant color shown in the photo. I'm sure with the right eye primer underneath, it will show up just fine.

For the next few post i'll be highlighting the items I bought from the Sephora F&F 20% Sale. I love this Nars Daphne Eyeshadow and I feel it would compliment many colors I already have. It's a deeper purple but i'm already imagining what it would look like under Mac's Violet Pigment!

This was so unlike me buying on impulse because I never seem to pick up what I really need... that's why it's good to keep a small "wishlist" handy for any impromptu makeup shopping I do.

These are my two favorite blushes in the entire world. I have a vast collection of blushes and hands-down, these two are at the top of my list. I love the Luster so much that whenever I wear it on my cheeks as a highlighter, I also wear it as a highlighter underneath my brows.
