NARS Orgasm Tutorial

I recently purchased Nars’ Orgasm line of makeup at Sephora. They had a box set with lip gloss, blush, highlighter stick and nail polish. I was reluctant to buy it for a really long time because I didn’t want to give in to the hype of the name. I finally gave in when this value set came out. I’m am a coral fiend, so this line was pretty much made for me. I love how perfect the blend of pink and orange pigments look on my neutral yellow skin. Please watch my NARS Orgasm Tutorial video to see how you can wear these products.

Pick of the Week – M.A.C. Gloss Texture

I am OBSESSED with MAC’s Clear Gloss texture gel ($18). The skin trend is changing to a more refreshing, dewy, moisture-drenched look that I am absolutely in love with. Dab a little clear gloss on the high planes of your face and you’re ready for a photo shoot. Here are some examples of new, natural beauty:

This gloss can be used anywhere on your body and face. Dab a little in the center of your smoky eyes and you’ve got vintage Hollywood glam. Mix it with pigments and/or glitter and you can create any color of lip gloss you want. Clear Gloss is so versatile, it’s worth the $18.

Tokidoki Makeup Review and Tutorial

I’ve always loved the super kawaii clutter of Tokidoki Designs. Now they have a whole cosmetics line available at Sephora that I couldn’t refuse. I really didn’t expect much from makeup in packaging so cute it made me want to vomit rainbows and unicorns, but I was pleasantly surprised. My video shows what I love about the eyeshadows, brushes, mascara, lip stain and lip glosses. There are also swatches and an application tutorial. Tokidoki!!! SQUEE!!!
