As far as I’m concerned the Best NARS Blushes are typically their golden peach pink shades. Yeah, I mean Orgasm. NARS perfected the golden peach pink in Orgasm. As far as formula goes on NARS Blushes also has an excellent formula with incredible pigmentation, an easy to apply and blend formula, and a long wear.
Outside of Tarte’s range of blushes I’d say NARS tops in as a favorite of mine.
So which are the best shades?

Lord knows I’m a high end cosmetic junkie. I live by the rule, “you get what you pay for”. Dishing out $20 for an eyeshadow that easily blends, has plenty of pigment, and simply looks stunning is way better than dishing out $5 for one that blends awful, has a chalky formula, and just looks awful on my eyes.
You get what you pay for.
However, some drugstore cosmetics have convinced me that they deserve a special spot among my elite high end cosmetic brands.
Here’s a post that checks out the best of both worlds and includes the best High End Cosmetics vs. the best Drugstore Cosmetics.

It’s no secret Jill Stuart is one of my very favorite cosmetic brands. With it’s elegant packaging and unique makeup items, is it any wonder why it’s a makeup junkie’s dream come true?
As of late I haven’t indulged in Jill Stuart cosmetics due to the repetitive color releases and bad currency conversion. But regardless how repetitious it becomes or how high the cost, Jill Stuart still remains a true favorite that stands out in my makeup world.

As you may know I have a slew of Asian drugstore finds hiding out in my closet. I really like shopping inexpensive Asian skincare and I’m always full of glee when I can score a deal online or have a friend pick me up something from Japan or Korea. One of my fav finds from the Asian skincare world is B&C Aqua Way Super Off Eye Make-up Remover. You may recognize the B&C name if you know Japanese cosmetics as they are the company behind Love Clover. B&C also offers a slew of inexpensive drugstore skincare items such as Aqua Way Super Off Eye Make-Up Remover. This retails for around $4-$5 USD in Japanese drugstores but it’s available readily online for US shoppers at around $8-$9. The price is a tad jacked up so the question to answer is it worth the price increase?

Yes, if you have no friends or contacts in Japan to get this for you than yes it’s worth the price jack. It’s a quality item that I’ve used for two years or more now and absolutely adore.
What is it?
It’s a subtly orange scented gel which removes waterproof mascara, hard to remove eye makeup, and eye shadow.
I’ll start off by saying I’m not partial to gels or balms for removing my shadow. For example I think theBalm Balms Away
is awesome however it’s not my ideal makeup remover. I do prefer liquid to remove my eye makeup. That being said I can be convinced to love good quality items like Balms Away and Super Off Eye Make-Up Remover.
The formula is a very thick gel that doesn’t foam or sud, no tricks or gimmicks, simply a gel here. Taking a little more than a pea size amount you rub it on makeup laden eyes sans water. As you rub the gel breaks up makeup and goes to work to remove it. After gently rubbing for a minute or so you can proceed to rinse with warm water. Presto! Eye makeup, even hard to remove waterproof mascara, is rinsed off.
I imagine the idea of rubbing your eyes for a minute or so isn’t too appealing but I find that the gel allows your fingers to gently glide across your eyes so no severe tugging is involved. If you’re terribly uncomfortable with rubbing you can simply work the gel onto lashes and ever so gently rinse them clean. Honestly, the friction of the gel makes for a ever so gentle removal.
It’s possibly one of the best removers I’ve come across aside from Lancome Bi-Facil plus it’s way cheaper. You get about a 3.7oz to 4oz tub for the price which will last well over 3 months with daily use.
If you’re looking for the Best Inexpensive Asian Eye Makeup Remover, B&C Eye Make-Up Remover is it. It’s Muse Approved for purchase! A tried and true favorite.
