Finally…

…popped my NARS cherry – hoorah!

Angelika is such a beautiful true pink, often described as bubblegum… but it shows up slightly softer on my skin (or perhaps I’m being majorly cautious with the application!)  Either way, I love it – the perfect pink with just the right amount of silver sparkle.

What are your favourite NARS blushes?

    Congrats! My faves are Lovejoy, Luster & Taj Mahal. I think I need to get Mounia and Exhibit A and then my collection will be complete.

    Beautiful things here! I have just found your blog but I am not allowed to follow… I do not know why. I’ll keep trying! XX
    P.S: Love the name of the blog!!

  3. Funny you should ask. I just rediscovered Torrid today! Love it. My favorites are Desire, Luster and Dolce Vita. But my ultimate fave is Sin. That is HG quality in my opinion.

    Sin is beautiful, I also love Anjelika and Orgasm – but I know a lit of people hate the shimmer in that! xxx

  5. I love Deep Throat and Amour! I really want Sin, Outlaw and Dolce Vita now! They are next on my list!

    Yay! You came over to the dark side!! Love that color!!

  7. @Vexinthecity – ooh, they’re some gorgeous colours right there – I want more!

    @Catanya – Thanks very much, and thank you for the follow!

    @Michelle – love Sin, that’s the slightly plummy one right? Def on my wishlist!

    @Jen – I really wanted Orgasm but I tried a blush that’s a supposed dupe and it just didn’t suit THAT well, it was ok… but I prefered the look of Angelika.

    @tackyblueeyeshadow – once you start, you can’t stop!

    @Tali – it took me long enough!

    That’s a lovely colour! Do you think it would show up on a darker skintone?

  9. @unetasse, I reckon anything lower than a NC35 would be fine with it. I also have NARS Crazed which is a lot darker (I have to be VERY light handed with it) – It’s not bubblegum pink, but raspberry pink… and that’s gorgeous too!
