I used a VERY affordable palette by L.A. colors so literally anyone can try out this look for a very inexpensive price!

Here’s what i used:

Aside from the mascara, eye liner, concealer, etc. I’d like to show you a couple different items individually. Starting with the primer i used today.

This stuff is really great. It has a beautiful pearly shimmer tone to it which at first i was skeptical about putting all over my face, but nonetheless i tried it and it really just gives you a luminous, healthy looking glow! Oil free, and fills any fine lines and wrinkles with silicones and light reflectors. Definitely recommend! Ecspecially for those who don’t wear a full face of makeup often, this looks beautiful with a light face of makeup it’s very refreshing and appealing.

Next is my Illuminator:

This Illuminator is by Your Best Friend, i am crazy about this stuff. It is my BFF! It is so creamy & gorgeous, you simply must try it! You will be very pleased.

Now here’s the blush i used:

This is by i.d. BareMinerals. In the color “Bliss.” This is such a pretty sparkly peachy happy color, and it can also be used as an eye shadow!

Here’s my new favorite bronzer πŸ˜‰

This is a GORGEOUS suntan islandy-baked bronze color from FLOWER beauty (on right.) It is so pigmented so you don’t need to use a lot of the product when applying it, and it’s just the perfect shade and so blendable. I am in love ❀

Now we have the very affordable palette by L.A. colors:

image

I used only the first two colors you see in this palette. A gorgeous very pale green shimmer and bright teal-blue shimmer shadow. I think this was $1.50 so, this goes back to knowing how to use inexpensive makeup to its fullest extent. If you are knowledgable about application techniques then you can make something out of nothing!

Last item i just wanted to quickly share was the L’Oreal INFALLIBLE “Pro-Spray and Set” Makeup Extender setting spray. I recently ran out of my MAC setting spray and picked this up at my local drugstore, so glad i did!

image

It smells nice, it feels fresh and it works just as good. No complaints whatsoever about this guy! πŸ™‚

These are some really great new items i’ve been using for my daily routine lately and i think many of you would love some of these products for yourself! You should definitely try one of these out if it stands out to you, i am so happy with everything.

Thanks for reading loves! Leave comments & thoughts

Quick Review: Nars Liquid Gold Face

I am sure many of you are big fans of NARS cosmetics just like I am. From the sleek modern packaging to the names that make you giggle and of course the top notch products, NARS has won a special place in my makeup drawers ❀ and remains one of my top brand choices. Today, I’ll be sharing my thoughts on one of their newer arrivals.. The NARS Liquid Gold Face Set. Which includes a mini Larger Than Life lip gloss in Gold Digger, A full size Hot Sand Illuminator, and a mini South Beach multiple. Now i don’t usually go for their boxes that include a few samples & maybe one or two full size products, but a few things that i noticed immediatley when i came across this set was that…

1. Everything gold intrigues me and calls out to me to purchase it and take it home.

2. I am currently obsessed with NARS illuminators, but i have not tried the Hot Sand. They have so many different shades ranging in nude/pink/tans. One of their most popular colors being “Orgasm.” (Shown below.)

3. I mean gold lipgloss? I loved the idea of my lips looking like i just kissed a pool of liquid gold. (“Gold Digger” lip gloss shown below)

And with those quick observations i picked this set up for myself and a few different illuminators to keep with my freelancing supplies. This one retails at about $45.00 USD. When purchasing this set i noticed most of the colors appeared very gold on the website, but upon arrival each product had a very nice rosey/peachy undertone. Which i happen to love. Take note that the lip gloss, is a very peachy-gold shimmer color. The illuminator, is more of a lighter peachy-champagne, and the south beach multiple is more of a light shimmer apricot/bronze. Overall the colors in this set are not pureΒ gold, but i personally feel it does make each one of these products more wearable for everyday/daytime use. Some tips for all you considering trying out this set or maybe one of the products inside the set, I found that applying a nude/peach matte lipstick underneath and finishing it with the “Gold Digger” gloss is lovely, and the most efficient way to apply the illuminator is with a beauty blending sponge. The multiple can be used as either a cream blush or bronzer, i suggest warming the product up before application just simply by swatching a small amount on the back of your hand, and then dabbing (NOT a heavy stroke) in the areas you want the color to be applied. (“South Beach” multiple shown below)

They have other shades of multiples that are more for highlighting/blush but the color “South Beach” in particular is pretty dark. It would really depend on your skin tone as to what you could really use this for. I have repurchased all of the full size products that came in this set since i happen to love them so much! Go head over to NARS website and try one out for yourself ladies!
