Bobbi Brown // Nars // No.7
Every spring I’m tempted by the prettiest make up palettes that come out and look simply beautiful along with adding a bit of spring brightening sunshine to your make up look. Sometimes I feel like these are a bit of a folly but I have some lovely ones that I have used incessantly. As long as you pick colours that suit you it can be a hard working bit of kit. These are all brightening or blush compacts so likely to be the most useful of the possibilities out there and make a perfect spring treat for yourself or a gift for a friend.
Today I am back at work having had a relaxing and recharging holiday. When I’m in America, I always do
a bit a lot of shopping and cosmetics are amongst the things I make a bee-line for, always opting for American brands to make the most of the prices.
One thing I did want to pick up was a new blusher. My addiction is well documented but my beloved Nars ‘Orgasm’ Blush had recently died an ugly death dropped onto the bathroom floor. It’s the perfect sexy summer shade for bronzed cheeks but as it’s November I fancied a change with a pinker shade for my cooler toned winter skin.
I found it amongst the Nars collection – several have risqué names but this one takes the biscuit, going well past ‘rude’ to frankly just crude. (check out the name here if you’re not easily offended.) Described as a ‘Flirty, sheer peach‘ it’s definitely got the warm tones but is more of a dusty pink with a lot less shimmer than Orgasm, yet still enough.
It’s not cheap, but the texture is beautiful, all the Nars shades stay put and it lasts forever, (if you don’t drop it onto the bathroom floor.)
Love (a blushing for more than one reason,)
*Nars Night Series eye palette.
I really believe in changing your make up to suit the seasons. For me that means a shift in shades and colours for the eyes and cheek to reflect the change in my skin tone and the changing light.
Right now I’m looking for Autumnal shades to make a day time chic face which is ‘put together’ but interesting and I’ll be reporting back on that soon.
In the meantime however, check out my favourite find this week from Nars – how warm and delicious are these smokey shades of plum and mocha with emerald green and sapphire blue? Day and night sorted in one palette for £37.
