Morsels of the Week ft. NARS Nails, Tarte Skincare, MAC Lips

NARS Mots Bleus

I’m in Seattle right now working at the physical location of t+j Designs for my internship. The month that I’ve been here has flown by, and I’ve had such a enriching experience seeing so many different aspects of how the company runs.

When we take photos of our cute rings, we like to make sure we have on a fun nail color too. This past week I wore the NARS Nail Polish in Mots Bleus ($20 US). It’s a gorgeous greyed-out kind of teal that works so nicely as a Summer to Fall transition color. NARS recently reformulated their polishes, but to be honest I don’t notice much of a difference, because I’ve always been a fan.




3.1 Phillip Lim for NARS Nail Collection for Fall 2014

NARS 3.1 Phillip Lim collection review

I maintain a lust list of designer items I dream of one day owning and slowly save towards. For the longest time a 3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli bag topped my list. Stylish yet edgy, I loved the bag’s structured silhouette.

I recently took the plunge and got myself one and thought I couldn’t be happier. That is, until I received these two NARS Nail Polishes ($20 US) from the 3.1 Phillip Lim for NARS Nail Collection in the mail. Now I’m positively glowing with a little bit of the designer on my fingertips and slung across my arm.



Playing with Luminosity with the NARS Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow for Summer 2014

NARS Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow review

When it comes to eyeshadows, I like formulas that encourage luminosity and create a bright-eyed look. Naturally, I was beyond excited to see that NARS had come up with a new eyeshadow formula for Summer 2014 that promises both “luminous sheen” and intense color.

Releasing this July on narscosmetics.com, the NARS Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow ($29 US) will be available in 12 colors. The biggest draw for this particular product is that it is designed to be used both wet and dry to achieve different effects.



Beautiful Design Makes the New NARS Brush Line Stand Out

NARS Brushes

To me, geishas are an intriguing source of fascination and inspiration. I wrote a research paper about them a few years ago, but they continue to interest me as a subject, and I hope to write a thesis about them in the future.

Of course when I first saw the new NARS brush line, the sleek designs instantly reminded me of black lacquer, like the kind that is ubiquitous in a geisha’s world. Naturally, the aesthetic speaks to me.



Lip Lust: NARS Lip Gloss

NARS Lip Gloss New

Lipgloss is one of those beauty products that I use in phases. There are some periods where I can’t step out of the house without a layer of shine, but other times I won’t want that glossy look.

I recently watched a Youtube video of a makeup tutorial centered around a beautifully done-up glossy lip, so as of right now I’m back on the lip gloss train trying to emulate that look.
