NARS Blush | Seduction


After falling in love with NARS cream blush in Montenegro, i decided i needed a similar shade that was powder, for days my skin was slightly more oily. I did my research and found Seduction. Im obsessed with the stand-out, scary looking blushes.

Im a sucker for NARS packaging. I love how sleek and compact it is! I love that they come with a mirror too. They may be pricey at £22.50, but the pigmentation and colour pay off is incredible. 

Berry, wine shades are my absolute favourite. Seduction is a gorgeous, raspberry wine shade with a slight shimmer running through. This shade would look incredible on all skintones, although on medium-dark tones, this would look STUNNING. These blushes are so silky smooth, and really glide onto the skin like a dream. 

Seduction makes the most perfect autumn/winter blush for if you love a super bright, show off shade! NARS may be expensive, but worth every penny in my eyes.

What are your favourite NARS blushes?

Urban Decay Naked Ultra Nourishing Lipgloss | Nooner


Working in a department store where an Urban Decay counter is present, could never be a good thing for my bank account! After spending most of my breaks, and browsing the counter before and after i start work, the glosses really caught my eye. Im loving the rose-kinda-gold packaging.. and after swatching them all, Nooner was the shade i needed! 

The super hydrating gloss is a gorgeous nude shade with a hint of peach, which makes a perfect everyday shade. The gloss leaves a very soft wash of colour, and a natural look to the lips. I love how long this gloss lasts on the lips - around 5 hours before it needs topping up!

I love how creamy and lightweight these feel on the lips, and if your looking a natural, every day gloss, id highly recommend Nooner! I cant wait to try a few of the more darker shades!

Nars Eyeshadow Duo - Alhambra





After having about 20 Nars Eyeshadow duo's on my wishlist, i finally took the plunge and bourght myself one - Alhambra. At £25, they are definetly pricey for two eyeshadows, but this is Nars we are talking about.

 Alhambra is stunning. The duo contains a gorgeous bright champagne shade, and a golden shimmery shade. The duo is crazy pigmented, and the shades really make blue eyes pop. They are shimmery, and frost finish like, but i love that! 
The formular is amazing, so creamy, blendable and NO fallout what so ever. The champange pink shade is amazing all over the lid and on the brow bone for brightening the eyes up.  I love the golden shade too for all over the lid.  

The only thing id say is that this duo doesnt come with a suitable crease shade, so i do have to keep my mac palette on me too, to blend something like Mac Cork in my crease for some definition. Also, when im super tan, the champagne shade doesnt show up so champagne-y, more on the white side.. So i'd definetly reccomend this little duo for anyone up to NC30 skintone.

That said, ive absolutly been obsessed with this duo and have been reaching for it everyday. Its definetly worth the money, and i cant wait to try a few more!

Benefit Rockateur Blush



Every Benefit blush ive tried, ive loved. I love the packaging and how stand-out, unique and girly it is! I had high hopes for Rockateur after falling head over heels in love with Dallas and Bella Bamba!

Rockateur is described as a rose gold.. Definitely not on my skin tone! For me, its a dusky light pink shade with a sheen finish. There are rose gold tones, but these do not show up on my skin. This blush does give skin a sunkissed look without looking too much. I love that you can use this blush lightly for a subtle light pink blush, or build it up for a more intense, kinda barbie pink.

The texture is super soft, and velvet like. Its so silky, it almost feels like a cream product. Rockateur blends into the cheeks like a dream. The blush does contain quite a bit of shimmer,  but i found it didnt emphasize pores at all! 

Obviously, everyones skin tone is different, but for me, i was slightly dissapointed in this shade. I dont find it to be very flattering on my skintone, and its not my prefered shade of blush for the moment. I definetly should have done more research before buying this blush, just because i expected it to be more deeper, like Dallas! However, its still a gorgeous blush - just not the shade for me at the moment! Id definetly recommend Rockateur for light skin tones!
