Freshly Testing…

This week I have been starting to test a few things. I know some of them came out quite a while ago, but things have been so hectic. None of these are limited edition so you can still get them!

I have been doing a lot of short trips lately. One of my biggest annoyances is trying to cram stuff into the half gallon zip lock bag for liquids. Because of this, I have been testing the Tom Ford Traceless Foundation StickIt has been fantastic so far! I think the Tom Ford Cream Foundation Brush really helps with the smoothing and application. Definitely a match made in heaven. Sabrina at The Beauty Look Book is responsible for the review (here) that pushed me over the edge to buy it!

I have been very intrigued with the new NARS Matte Multiples. I love their normal multiples —I use Copacabana religiously as my highlighter. 

I picked out two of the new Matte shades to try out. I figured I needed a darker, skintoned one to try for contouring and a bright, poppy one to try for the lips and cheeks. I ended up choosing Laos which is a medium dark rose red. And Altain which is a medium tan with pretty neutral undertones.

I have been very into pink and nude lips lately. I normally don’t go for light pink or blue base colors but the Marc Jacobs Lust for Lacquer in Overprotected lip gloss look so lovely! To me, it smells like toasted marshmallows, which makes me really happy. I have also been trying the Marc Jacobs LoveMarc Lip Gel in Role Play. It is a lovely dusty rose shade.

And finally, the coveted Hourglass Ambient Lighting BlushesThese are probably the ones I am sad I didn’t try out sooner. The texture is lovely, and I love the glow they give to my face. So far, I have Luminous Flush, Diffused Heat and Radiant Magenta. But I am certain the rest of the lineup will eventually make it to my collection.

Let me know if you would like to see more pictures or in-depth reviews of any of these products! I kinda want to make a video of the NARS Matte Multiples application.
