Nars Has Liquid Blush & It. Is. ON! Torrid Review & Swatches.

IMAG7408

 

Ugh! Why did they have to do this to me? Because I don’t have enough damn blushes? Seriously.

I’m not like a huge Nars stan, honestly I like their blushes and I like their foundations,, and I own a ton of their lip pencils. Ok, maybe I need to re-evaluate my original statement. Anywhoo, I’ve gotten a couple of eye shadow palettes that I didn’t care for. Not in terms of quality or consistency, I just found them to be exceedingly boring. I’d gotten a sample of the All Day Luminous Foundation and loved the hell out of it, but have never pulled the trigger on it, even though I keep threatening to.

Collective Vacation Haul: Laura Mercier

IMAG4632_1

 

These are some of the items that I got from MUABS.com. The seller, Brenda aka Omgmakeup, sells only new items at a fraction of the cost. There are actually a few sellers on the site for whom it’s a business and they only sell new makeup. When I’ve purchased stuff from the site I usually only purchase from Omgmakeup and Nya90. Because let’s get real, this is a makeup site for deeply discounted makeup, and I get that the others are also selling new items, but if I wanted to pay full price, I’d just go to Sephora. Use this link for omgmakeup’s MUABS shop and this one for Nya90. I’ve purchased from both a few times and each time I haven’t been disappointed with my stuff when I get it. In all from Omgmakeup I spent $142 for $283 worth of brand new items, cause this wasn’t the only thing that I got from her shop. So yeah, MUABS is a good place to find bargains, you just have to be careful of the scammers cause there are some, always use PayPal and you’re covered.

Giorgio Armani Maestro Fusion Blush or Fluid Sheer?

2016-04-01

 

Did I mention where I’m completely obsessed with Giorgio Armani? I mean, two of my favourite foundations are Armani, and for a long time I wanted to try the Fluid Sheers, but I couldn’t really figure out what they were at first. Where they blush? Luminiser? What the heck are they?!?! Then they’re truly huge, a little over an ounce for $62, plus with 18 shades my confusion just blossomed and I sort of gave up on trying to narrow down the perfect shade, since I wasn’t going to get three or four at that price point.

Jouer LE Mermaid Collection.

IMAG3937

 

This is my first bonafide Jouer purchase. I remember that I got a lip gloss in a Glossybox some time ago, and while I thought it was ok, I didn’t run out and get a bunch of stuff from the brand because I wasn’t all that impressed cause, I’m not a gloss kinda chick. And real talk? It seemed like a real white identified line.

I’ve been eyeing a few things on the site though since some of my fave brown bloggers (@JackieAina and Danielle) seem to like them so…

HauteLook Joe Fresh (Canadian Drugstore) Haul. 

IMAG3832_1

 

Are you guys familiar at all with Joe Fresh? I mean, I know of the clothing side of the brand, I own a couple pairs of very unique jeans that I absolutely adore and I’d heard about their cosmetics line intermittently. The brand is a Canadian drugstore one, so being able to find it anywhere in the states is almost impossible, and while finding no shortage of Canadian bloggers that have reviewed the line, finding a dark skinned one proved to be impossible. I found not a one. A month ago Haute Look had a Joe Fresh for sale (they frequently have the brand this is the third time I’ve seen), and they had the entire line, everything priced between $4 and $11. I did some damage.

Burberry Beauty; Lip And Cheek Blooms

IMAG2074_1

 

Really, I got these because of the pretty. Like for real, if you look at these on any website and don’t immediately reach for your credit card (or you know, some willing sucker’s) then you have the fortitude of job my friend. I however, do not, so buy I did.

The Burberry Lip & Cheek Blooms are multi-use products for cheeks and (duh) lips. You guys know how I feel about multi-use products , I think most of them do one job well, and not the other so more often than not I don’t even bother to try them as lip products because of this is where they fail. In this case I didn’t either.

There are six colours available in the range, and of the six colours I got five Hydrangea, which I purchased after all the others and didn’t swatch because when I received it, it was a lot cooler looking than it looked online, so I gave it to someone and I really hate giving people things that my fingers have been in. The other colours I got were Peony, Orange Blossom, Poppy and Purple Tulip.
