NARS Forte de France highlighter

What do you do when one of your favorite highlighters of 2018 hasn’t seen much use, let alone a review? Well, you bust it out in a shop my stash of course and you use it again. That’s exactly what happened to me and NARS’ Forte De France highlighter. After trying and loving their Albatross…

NARS Soft Matte concealer

One of the most raved about concealers in recent years must be the NARS Soft Matte concealer. This is really one of those products that took the market by storm and just hit it with a bang. It promises to have an intense level of coverage yet still look natural on the skin. Let’s see…

NARS Albatross highlighter

NARS do some awesome cult makeup products. There are the Radiant Creamy Concealer, Orgasm blush and Laguna bronzer for starters. Another product that fits into that long line of cult favorites is NARS Albatross. This highlighter used to be raved about, but that was back when highlighting wasn’t really a thing. Such a shame that…

Maybelline Fit Me vs Nars Radiant Creamy concealer

There are two concealers that many in the beauty community like to compare to one another: The Maybelline Fit Me concealer and the NARS Radiant Creamy concealer. The formulas are supposed to be almost identical and with the Maybelline version only costing only a fraction of the price, it is well worth looking a bit…

3x high end lipstick review: Bite, Estee Lauder & NARS

Today I am bringing you another 3-in-1 review. This time of some high end lipstick that I acquired in the past year and a half. When I buy high end products, they are usually the odd bits and ends here and there, which means that I have tons of potential reviews waiting around. However, I…

NARS duo eyeshadow: Isolde & Cordura

For the longest time my wishlist contained a high end brown eyeshadow palette. I had heard good things about Tom Ford’s eyeshadow palettes. I had held out until I went to Paris last summer to see them in the flesh first. And so I found myself in Galerie Lafayette in the heart of Paris, set…

NARS inspired make up look

The reason for my reading make up books is to get inspiration for techniques that I might use myself. For some reason, pictures of celebrities never work for me because a) I don’t find it all that interesting and b) I don’t find make up looks used at red carpet events show me anything I…

FOTD: cool bronze

As promised a few days ago, when I posted an outfit of the day, that I would post a separate on a make up look. The outfit I posted went with a makeupless face. I just didn’t feel inspired that day to do any make up and usually on days off I will opt out…

My 5 favorite blushes for spring

Let’s talk blusher! I think one major make up item that can easily amp up any look is blush. Especially when you where foundation or use anything else to even out your skin, it’s a must just to give more dimension to your face. Apart from eyeshadow I think blush is the make up product…

Make up collection: lipstick

Another day, another part of my make up collection. This time it’s lipstick that I will be showing you. Later this week I will post something on my favorite lipsticks & glosses including swatches. I may do this in a video. Not sure yet though. Might as well post pictures. Anywho, enough babbling. Let’s get…

Make up collection: lipgloss

Despite being sick I’ve decided to take a few pictures of my lipglosses. I actually wanted to do this in a video and swatch a few on my hand (my favorites), but I will do that during my vacation when I’ve got more time and am looking and feeling better again. The first three pictures…

Haul post: nail polish & make up

I’ve been promising to write this post for a few days now, but I finally got round to taking pictures. The lighting sucked, so I wasn’t able to do this before today. As I posted last week, I posted a few orders online and all of those have by now arrived. I also went out…
