The NARS Purchases
To eliminate that unneeded knowledge and replace it with constructive thoughts (that will actually better my being), I've noted every product want in wishlist format, on paper.
I'll finish this topic by saying that--whoa--it's a lot longer than I thought.
But ever since late last year (side note: time flies), NARS products have occupied a vast majority of the top half. The Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer was one of them, but, let's be honest, I don't need any more bases (although my beloved Dr. Jart BB Cream is on its last legs) and I couldn't justify another complexion enhancing tube to further convey the myth of makeup.
But there were two other standings, which, in reality, I could defend. Where did I go next? Off to the beauty market, of course--but, no, there were no little piggies in tow (pun intended).
The first order was the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer--a lust that, even before the tactile list, employed ten thousandths of a millimeter of brain occupancy. As both my existing concealers run low, I deemed this purchase essential.
The shade 'Vanilla' (I know--how unfortunate: the shade that the rest of the world wears, too) blends perfectly to match my skin tone. The light airy mousse texture also glides over the skin and blends seamlessly, to, shock horror, look like skin.
Since my makeup mantra is to make foundations and concealers look as skin-like as possible; to hide blush in appearing like my natural flush; and to line with eyeliner in the most undetectable of ways, another NARS product was coveted by yours truly to boost my 'no makeup' stash.
Even two years ago, I fell hard for the beaute, but the love eased and it fell void in my brain. Then, some blogger love arrived and it earned a spot back on my radar.
I would say obsession would encircle my love for the, then intangible, NARS Blush in Douceur. Well, baby--now it's mine and I haven't looked back.
With a pinky-brown blush theme gracing my cheeks, I knew it wouldn't sit unloved. Then, I caught sight of some of my favorite bloggers sporting it and I knew I made the right decision.
As the third NARS blush in my stash, I knew I'd be fond of the texture and application form, so the color was the real selling point--a burnished, rosy, plum, brown that's a bit darker than Tarte's Exposed (it's brown blush predecessor).
As two of the three things I've boughten this month. I'll draw a conclusion: I made a spectacular decision. Unfortunately, the wishlist keeps on growing. More NARS products, please?
