I love NARS cosmetics, but was new to their concealers. After I finished Erase Paste I was on the hunt for a new one - just to see if I was missing out! Ladies - this stuff is amazing!! You can use it as a concealer or as a highlighter! It's totally worth the price tag and doesn't cake up like some other brands - it's very hydrating! It also helped me save face after we landed in London and I couldn't have been more tired!! But you couldn't tell in the photos!
I sang the praises of Seche Vite being the best fast drying top coat - but this one is way better! I picked mine up at Wallgreens and the biggest difference I've found between the two is that this doesn't get clumpy like Seche Vite did. My nails are dry in one minute and with no chips for at least 3 days, which for regular people's nails is probably 7 days! While it's not a "no chip top coat" it does help better than other top coats I've used.
I picked this up on a whim and I'm so happy I did!! It's been one of the best drugstore mascara's I've ever purchased and the little bristles at the tip of the brush really get into the corners of your eye so that no lash is missed. If I want extra drama I add on one more coat of Lancome Definicils.
I mentioned back in June that I purchased the CC cream and I'm here to report back!! Let me start by explaining the difference between BB and CC creams - read the full article here, but the short of it is this:
BB: Beauty Balm and least amount of coverage and more like a tinted moisturizer
CC: Color (Complexion) Corrector gives your face a more even skin tone to start the make-up process.
I switched from using the Garnier BB Cream (used it for over 2 years) to CC cream's for a more even application to my makeup. I love the Stila cream!! When you squeeze it out of the bottle it comes out blue, but then once rubbed in matches to your face exactly. I really love this product and for reference I purchased the "Light 02"
This blush boasts up to 12 hours of wear and it really does last that long!! I purchased the "warm golden apricot" color and it has just a hint of shimmer to it. I've been using it for the past 3 months and love how pigmented the color is, I have yet to make a dent in the blush at all. I'm actually planning on buying "strawberry red" for another color option.
I kind of saved the best for last! This eyeliner is $1.39!!! You read that correctly! This has been my go-to liner for about 3 years now and every time I try another one out, I just don't like it nearly as much as this Jordana brand!! I basically have it in every single color they make and Eggplant is my second favorite! You can buy these at your local Wallgreen's and one of the best features is that it's retractable - so no sharpener needed!
So there you have just a few beauty products I'm loving!! Have you found any gems lately?
