Excited About Makeup!

Growing up I was never much of a makeup lover.

As strange as it may seem, I just never put much thought
into the products that go on my face.

Don't get me wrong.
I like wearing makeup,
but I rarely (if ever) get very excited over it.

That all changed when I recently read about some NARS products on a makeup blog,
and it reminded me of how much I had been wanting to buy a NARS blush.

While my mom was here, we visited Sephora and I found the perfect NARS makeup set!
My mom bought me the limited edition NARS Wicked Attraction set
that I sort of fell in love with while at Sephora.

The set includes a couple of NARS products
I had been wanting for a while:
the Orgasm blush and the Laguna bronzer.

This might be one of the first times that
I've been truly excited about a beauty product.

1. { Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base }
I'll give it a try, but I do like the Shadow Insurance primer by Too Faced.
I guess a little comparison never hurt anybody. (:

2. { Larger Than Life Lipgloss in Spring Break }
The moment I put this shade on my lips I loved it! I've been wanting that perfect nude lip color
that looks like you're not wearing color but really are. This pretty golden beige is sheer and ah-mazing.

3. { Blush and Bronzer Duo in Orgasm and Laguna }
I am thrilled with these colors! I tried the Orgasm blush over a year ago and have wanted it ever since. The Laguna bronzer looks a bit dark and shimmery in the compact, but it's a nice natural color without shimmer on the skin. I'm super excited about these two together!

4. { Eyeshadow in Fathom }
I'm not a huge fan of shadows with glitter in them, but it is fun for a little pick me up once in a while.
I'll use this color but probably not very often.

Here I am wearing the Larger Than Life Lipgloss in Spring Break:

Do you love makeup?
What are some of your favorite beauty products?


  1. I have wanted to try the Nars Orgasm just because you hear sooo many people raving about it!

  2. You look so beautifully natural! I've always been a make-up lover but never had the nice stuff. I do love Sephora though!

  3. I love your blog! I followed! I would love it if you could check out mine? Thanks so much!


  4. Helllllo gorgeous!
    I have been wanting to try some new make up... NARS is now on my list!

  5. I do love make-up! A lot. More than I should. I don't care about the brands as long as it is good. I've been into bold lipsticks lately... fuchsia, red, coral... So much fun!
