Hi! Remember me? It's been a few weeks of craziness and travel which lead to no posting, sadly. (This is the first time my monthly favorites have ever been late, but theres always a first for everything right?!) Anyways, I'm back with lots of new posts and pretty products to share :) First up, last month's favorites.
NARS Blush 'Madly' : Madly is one of those products that came home with me on a whim. One of those moments where I was standing in Sephora thinking don't do it, you really don't need to go down the NARS aisle and well you know how that ended. I left with Madly and Telesto and couldn't be happier. Madly is sort of the cousin to the ever sought after and impossible to find Doucer. A little more neutral, a little less pink, and with a shimmer running through it. It has been hands down my most reached for blush since it landed in my basket that day. It just works with everything and even with the shimmer feels natural.
NARS Eyeshadow Duo 'Kalahari' : After loving Isolde so much I decided another eyeshadow duo was needed in my collection. The duo houses two gorgeous neutrals - a rose gold shade and a more taupe-y brown shade. Both with shimmer and both super easy to wear. Like all NARS products they are highly pigmented and sit beautifully on the skin.
NARS Dual Intensity Eyeshadow 'Callisto' : I swatched this at the counter and immediately my jaw dropped. Normally I don't go for silver/cool shades but this one was so gorgeous and shimmery I had to snag it. It is a warmer cool tone which is probably why I was drawn to it and works beautifully especially in the inner corner as a highlight. I plan to also use this all over the lid wet and pair it with a gorgeous berry tone lip.
NARS Dual Intensity Eyeshadow 'Telesto' : Telesto came home with me the same day I got Madly and has been such a winner this season. I've gotten so many compliments on this shadow and love wearing it wet. It gives off a ridiculous amount of pigment and a gorgeous metallic sheen. I love pairing this with black liquid liner and loads of mascara.
Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara : This mascara has definitely been my most reached for this past month and a half as well. It can be worn fluttery or built up for more of a spidery effect. It gives off a wet look (which I love) and the waterproof version holds a curl perfectly.
Tom Ford 'Moodlight' Palette* : This palette is so stunning - both in the pan and on the skin. The deeper side is a beautiful rose-golden bronze that works both as a subtle contour or blush and the lighter side is a beautiful highlight that doesn't read glittery or shimmery. The formula is beautiful and doesn't accentuate my pores.
Maybelline Lipstick 'Nude Embrace' : When Lou Teasdale did a mini tutorial with this lip color I knew I needed it immediately. Lou's picks are always some of my favorite and she didn't disappoint with this one. It's a gorgeous neutral with warm brown tones that works well with a lot of my MAC liners. The formula is creamy and doesn't drag on the lips or dry them out.
Now let's chat - let me know what you've been loving recently. I'm feeling a little Sephora haul in my future and need some good recommendations :)
