Here’s a round-up of all the blushes I own from NARS. I honestly don’t have much to say about them, as the quality & shade range speaks for itself. I also appreciate that NARS does right by WOC again and again in their shade selection. I own a lot of blush from a lot of brands, but I only reach for the NARS ones on a day-to-day basis.

Today we have another Pat McGrath launch that I was very excited for. I picked the 005 kit up from for $72cad in the shade Copper.

It a four-piece set which includes a silky cream pigment, a metallic pigment, a mixing liquid to liquefy pigment, and a black dual-ended eyeliner.

I’m one of those people who doesn’t plan for Sephora sales. Then it gets here, I freak out, and buy everything I see. This year the only thing I had in my shopping cart was my boyfriend’s birthday present, which I made sure to order as soon as I woke up. Then I headed down to the recently renovated Sephora on Bloor St. and was amazed by the sheer selection of product available.

The loot (part one lol).

This Yves Saint Laurent Lip Discovery  set was available at a VIB Rouge Holiday event at my local store. I’ve rarely found YSL sets to be great value for darker skin or interesting enough to warrant purchasing one. So I was surprised that I was attracted to this year’s set – and it seems like a lot of other people were too, because it’s already sold out online. Maybe you’ll be able to find it in store, and here’s hoping it gets restocked.

If you thought my skepticism for ABH products was unwarranted then you’ll definitely think the same of my skepticism for BECCA products. I just get an uneasiness about how many people tout Champagne Pop in spite of the fact that I’ve actually loved every product I’ve tried from her line, including the aforementioned Champagne Pop.

Anyways, I’ve been on this huge cream/bronzer/shine kick recently whereby I need every product that is luminizing. So of course I bought a Becca blush in Snapdragon.
