NARS Pure Matte Lipstick: Yay or Nay?

NARS Pure Matte Lipstick 1

A matte lip is very modern, whether nude or deeply pigmented. Try a color close to your skin tone for a universally flattering look. Pair darker hues with a fresh complexion and little makeup. But, always choose a formula that has hydrating ingredients to condition lips.” -François Nars, Founder & Creative Director of NARS Cosmetics

Gosh I wish I agreed. I personally can’t sport matte finish lippies to be honest. They just make me look deathly however I’m willing to take a chance on one by NARS.

Hmmmm!

Beauty Reflections: A Look Back At Summer 2010

Beauty Reflections

I can’t believe Summer is almost over. In some ways it lasted for ages and in others it feels like it flew by. Did you enjoy your Summer so far? Do anything special?

As Summer draws to a close, I’ll be reviewing the last of the Summer items I have stashed away and start to concentrate more on Fall and Holiday 2010. It’s quite an exciting time as I simply adore Holiday Collections!

Until we get deeper into Fall and Holiday we might as well enjoy the last days of Summer the best we can right? Here are some great posts from Summer 2010 that you may have missed!

NARS Skin Smoothing Face Prep released this Summer and it wasn’t exactly what I had hoped it would be. Some people loved it, alot of people hated it, and I gotta admit mine fell deep into the Makeup Graveyard!
