Swatches ~ Nars Rikugien and Cruella Satin Lip Pencils


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.

Swatches ~ My NARS Blush Collection Updated


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.

Beauty ~ NARS Pro-Prime Smudge-Proof Eyeshadow Base

NARS Pro-Prime Smudge-Proof Eyeshadow Base

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!

Swatches ~ NARS NaPali Coast Multiple

 NARS NaPali Coast Multiple

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.

Nails ~ Nars Follow Me Nail Polish

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.

Swatches ~ Nars Pierre Hardy Blush in Rotonde

Nars Pierre Hardy Blush in Rotonde
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.

Swatches ~ Nars Seduction Blush and Comparisons

Nars Seduction Blush and Comparisons

Nars Seduction Blush is so beautiful and this is one of the rare shades that really compliment women of color. It's a deep berry color that applies matte and is very pigmented. A light hand is all you need when applying this blush.  It's also beautiful as an eyeshadow a well.

Swatches ~ Nars Liberte Blush

Nars Liberte Blush

I think this Nars Liberte Blush is going to be one of my go-to blushes for summer.  It's so pretty and swatches true to color! It's also very pigmented which is why I really like Nar's products.  This is available for $24, it's quite pricey for a blush but well worth having in your collection.

Swatches ~ Nars Gina Blush

Nars Gina Blush

I absolutely love all the Nars Gina Blush! I have over 10 of them in my blush collection.  I love that they're mostly matte and they have incredible staying power.  They're blushes blend very easily and I never have to worry about re-applying my blush throughout the day.

Swatches ~ Nars Gaiety Blush

Nars Gaiety Blush
Nars Gaiety Blush is from their Nars 2012 Spring Collection.  I've been searching for a very pink blush that didn't look rose on me and when I swatched this one, I was really surprised at the outcome.  I should mention I ordered this online based on swatches from another blogger and I couldn't have been more pleased!

Swatches ~ Nars California Eyeshadow

Nars California Eyeshadow
Nars California Eyeshadow is a beautiful blend of copper/orange/gold and it's really a very hard color to define.  I'm actually thinking it applies differently on every individual according to their undertones.

Swatches ~ Nars Irresistiblement Bronzer

 Nars Irresistiblement Bronzer
  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.

Swatches ~ Nars Outremer Eyeshadow

Swatches ~ Nars Outremer EyeshadowThis 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.

Swatches ~ Nars Daphne Eyeshadow

Swatches ~ Nars Daphne Eyeshadow




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!

Beauty ~ Haulin, Nars Bronzer in Casino and Mac Blush in Fever

Nars Casino, Nars Montenegro Mac Fever, Mac Rice Paper, Mac Soft Brown


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.

Swatches ~ Nars Mounia Blush / Nars Luster Highlighter

Nars Mounia Blush / Nars Luster Highlighter
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.

Swatches ~ NARS Blush Bronzer Trio (Limited Edition)

NARS Blush Bronzer Trio (Limited Edition)

This NARS Blush Bronzer Trio retails for $55.00 at Sephora.com but I imagine you can buy it at Nordstrom also while supplies last.  If you were to buy each item separately it would run you well over $80, so I would say you get a lot of bang for your buck in this trio. The packaging is very beautiful!  It comes in a zipper pouch which makes it very easy and unbreakable for travel.  At first glance, I though (what the heck) but once I unzipped it and saw the beautiful arrangement of powders, it was love at first site!
