NARS 413 BLKR Blush Gives You an Excuse to Get to a NARS Boutique!

NARS 413 BLKR Blush

As much as I love the convenience of having so many brands under one roof when I’m shopping at Sephora or a department store, I treasure the shopping experience I have at freestanding boutiques.

The most noticeable difference between the two would be the employees, who are much more passionate and knowledgeable about the company and line at a boutique. Little perks like samples or a visually engaging window display are just perks to the actual people in the store that embody the shopping experience.

Start Picturing Sunny Pool Days with the NARS Summer 2014 Adult Swim Collection

NARS Summer 2014 review

This Summer I’m going to be all over the States. I’ll be in Massachusetts for most of it, Seattle for a month for my internship and then home in California for another month before heading back to school.

It’s going to be a hectic, new experience since I usually stay home for the entirety of Summer. Why go anywhere when you live in Southern California and can drive ten minutes to the beach?

NARS Contour Blush Can be Your Best-Kept Secret

NARS Contour Blush review

A few days ago I forgot to contour my face. I didn’t notice until later in the day, but once I did, it was remarkable how much of a difference I saw. Contouring is an art that depends on subtlety in creating that ideal illusion of shadow and light so using just the right products matters.

I was really excited about the newly released NARS Contour Blush ($42 US), which comes in three colors, since NARS makes such excellent cheek products. Of course, after testing them out for a few weeks, do I even have to say it? They’re must-haves for anyone serious about creating beautiful definition on the face.

Trying New Things with NARSskin

NARS skincare review

I remember being really excited when I was a child about discovering that Snickers, my favorite candy bar at the time, could be bought as an ice cream. Then I saw that a lot of my favorite candies like Reese’s had ice cream counterparts and my young mind was blown.

Nowadays I’m not so surprised to see companies expand into different forms of their product or brand. What does surprise me is when this translation is done well. The NARS skincare line is a perfect example.

NARS Final Cut Collection Rethinks Pink in Time for Valentine’s Day

NARS Final Cut Collection Group Product Shot - jpeg

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and whether you’re single or taken you know you want to look good on the 14th. It may be a cheesy holiday, but having an excuse to eat a box of chocolates never hurts!

Of course, that doesn’t mean I’ll be one to suddenly wear an alarmingly pink shirt or heart-print tights, but a nicely sophisticated shade of pink on the lips is just the right amount of festive participation.
