NARS Spring 2015 Colour Collection Review, Photos, Swatches

The NARS Spring 2015 Colour Collection is a well edited collection of only 7 pieces. The collection features Tilda Swinton in the second of four ‘Portraits by The Artist’, a seasonal series of acts created by NARS Founder and Creative Director François Nars. Act 2, for Spring 2015, is a nude scene – daring, baring, anything but neutral. Disrobed tones in spectral effects expose a new natural state. The look begins with a provocative pink shimmer on cheeks. The barely-there effect extends to eyes, where a bold beige base

NARS Barents Sea with Yves Saint Laurent Nuit Blanche = Stunning Nails

I am obsessed with this nail combo. I have been in love with the Yves Saint Laurent Nuit Blanche La Laque Couture from the YSL Spring 2015 Collection. I have been having so much fun seeing the gorgeous effects this polish gives over different nail colours. Nuit Blanche is a clear base very densely packed with iridescent micro-shimmer and iridescent flake shimmers of various sizes. It is so incredibly pretty. Yesterday I painted my nails with two coats of NARS Barent Sea from the NARS Holiday 2014 Collection after applying NARS

Favourite Lipstick of 2014

My Favourite Lipstick of 2014 | Makeup Wars

Today the Makeup Wars team is sharing our favourite lip product of 2014. Mine has to be the new NARS Audacious Lipstick ($32 US/$37 CAD) launched in the Summer of 2014 to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the NARS Brand. This lipstick formula is nothing short of phenomenal! I really need to invest in some more subtle shades as the ones I have are quite bold and I don't often wear a bold lip. If I could I'd have all 40 shades I would! Gloriously intense pigment, perfect coverage, great wear time, and incredibly comfortable

NARS Holiday 2014 Collection 4

NARS Holiday 2014 Lip Gloss in Soleil d’Orient, Corsica, Burning Love | Review, Photos, Swatches

My favourite pieces in the NARS Laced in Edge Collection for Holiday 2014 are, hands down, the lip glosses. These lip glosses have incredible pigmentation and a cushy comfortable feel with zero stickiness. There is no need to layer a lipstick underneath but they will pair nicely with the lipsticks in the collection. NARS Lip Gloss ($31 CAD) in : Soleil D’Orient – shimmering pink champagne. This lipgloss very pigmented for such a shimmery shade. While the effect may seem a little metallic for some you can easily sheer it down

NARS Velvet Lip Liner Review 1

NARS Velvet Lip Liner Review, Photos, Swatches | Belle Mare and Costa Smeralda

NARS Velvet Lip Liner ($24 US/$28 CAD) is a new 12 shade range of lip liners from NARS that pair perfectly with their new Audacious Lipsticks. The shades I have tested are Belle Mare (sangria) and Costa Smeralda (Shocking Pink). They have the same propel/repel (twist-up) design as the NARS Larger Than Life Long-Wearing Eyeliner. Just like the eyeliners they have a sharpener hidden in the end of the pencil. I love this because even with twist up eyeliners you still sometimes would like a very fine point. The formula is

My Top 10 Makeup Brushes | Beauty Blogger Top Ten Tuesday

I am so excited about this weeks Beauty Blogger Top Ten Tuesday topic. We are all sharing our Top 10 Makeup Brushes! I am a brushaholic. If I had the funds I would probably own 10 times as many. Brushes truly make all the difference when it comes to your makeup application. Whether it be ease of application, quality of pigment deposited, or quality of blending achieved, it is not just about the quality of the cosmetics you are using but also the brushes. I use natural hair brushes and haven't been able to find many synthetic
