The Summer Duo


When a Sephora gift card landed in my happy little hands I couldn't wait to make a trip to snag a few items I'd recently been lusting after. With enabling from both Latasha & Zoe I knew exactly what summery items I wanted to snag.

NARS Eyeshadow Duo 'Isolde' : This is the duo that actually got me excited about wearing eyeshadow again. I often get in little ruts where I just do bold liquid eyeliner, but having something fresh and fun makes me want to experiment a bit more. I most definitely prefer the darker, copper side. It's not glittery, but it does have a great shimmery/sheen that gives it an almost wet look. The left side is gorgeous to add a lighter, gold highlight to the eye. The formula applies incredibly smoothly and the shadows are nice and soft. They also have great staying power and barely crease throughout the day.

Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment 'Nude' : After reading Latasha's review on this one I immediately needed to snag it. The easy to wear, slightly peachy color is perfect for low maintenance makeup days and also for throwing on when my eye makeup is a bit more dramatic. It's hydrating and super nourishing on the lips as well - a total win/win.

Now tell me, what have you been loving from Sephora as of late? I need a few more items to add to my next Sephora shopping cart. It's um...research...you know? ;)

  1. I only have one NARS eyeshadow duo and they are purple shades, so they are not used very often but the formula and application is great! I love the shade on the left - definitely the perfect highlight color. I wish I had a Sephora gift card right now!

  2. I've been wanting Isolde for a long time now, I think that's their most popular eyeshadow duo, so pretty :) On what I've been loving, I've been loving the Urban Decay Revolution lip glosses, I have the shade in Liar and I think you'll love it. If you're looking for pigmented lip glosses those are awesome and they have a good shade selection. And now I'm waiting on the Naked Smoky palette so we'll see how that goes :)

  6. You should get a bold liquid liner from Stila! I love their liquid eyeliner formula and a cobalt blue would be so pretty!

  9. The formula is great! I actually only had a single shadow (that was super dark and full of shimmer - gorgeous but not for everyday) so this is really my first time falling in love with the shadows! I can't recommend them enough!

  15. Ooh fun!! I'll have to check out their colored liners tonight when I pop into Sephora. Have you ever used any of the colored liners from Kat Von D? Her tattoo liner is a total favorite of mine!

  18. Yes! I love the KVD liner, so maybe one of those in a bright color would be cool.
