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…Best Drug Store Mascara

I really didn’t want to hop on the “Lash Blast” Bandwagon, but I decided to give it a try (mostly beacause it was orange). I had returned every drug store mascara I purchased because they were all pretty horrible, but this one’s a keeper! It wasn’t clumpy, flaky or dry. It separated, volumized dramatically and lengthened my lashes. This will definitely be the mascara in my makeup artist kit. LOVES IT!!!
