NARS Bento Box

NARS Bento Box 2

Fun fact of the day, I find packing a Bento Box a super relaxing experience. I’m not much of a cooker (can barely boil water ahem…) but I go all out Martha Stewart when packing a Bento lunch. I used to do it in High School, did it daily in College, and on trips to my office I still pull out my collection Bento Boxes on occasion and pack myself a pretty lunch.

What’s better than an elegantly packaged Bento Box lunch? Why a NARS Bento Box of course.

NARS Holiday Collection Gift 2010

Well look at NARS getting all into the Holidays. Who knew they had it in them? NARS is known for releasing a special gift set here and there from time to time but the Holidays are normally reserved for a large color release and maybe a palette or two if you’re on the lucky side.

But this year NARS seems to be getting creative and I’ve spotted several gift sets from the brand plus prices are quite…cheap! What are they up to? I’m positive they’ve been sipping the crazy kool aid. Hmmm!

High End Cosmetics vs. Drugstore Cosmetics: Beauty Battle

Steal vs. Splurge Cosmetics and Makeup

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.

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!
