A truly long-lasting liquid eyeliner
This eyeliner may be more expensive than what you may feel comfortable paying for a liquid eyeliner, but this product lives up to the hype.
It has a wide-array of colors to choose from, has sleek packaging, and truly does wear for an extremely long time. (For me, it will still look as fresh at night as it did when first applied in the morning.) Another great thing is even as the day wears on, it won't crack like some liquid eyeliners. It doesn't wear down, smudge, flake, or migrate like most liners will do.
The applicator has a firm tip which makes it a great liner for those who are just beginning to use liquid liners. If you can write with a pencil, you can use this liner. However, it does slightly limit you from getting a *super fine* line that other, thinner & more flexible eye liners may allow.
My only issue is that #14 (which is in the picture I uploaded & is the one I own and use) is a slightly watery formulation, meaning it requires about two applications or so for full opacity. But it's such a beautiful, glittery, oil-slick of a color that I am willing to overlook that!
I definitely would repurchase this liner.
I had heard loads and loads about NARS blushers, and everyone always commented on how Orgasm was the best shade ever. I went to my local Sephora and swatched it, and while it is a lovely color, it is far too shimmery for my taste. I have skin that becomes more oily throughout the day, so to wear shimmer would further give my face a sheen. I'm also very pale with a difficult undertone to work with.
I swatched nearly every blusher NARS had, and the shade Amour was by far my favorite. It has no shimmer, and is described as a "peachy pink", but I think it's safe to say the color is reminiscent of rose, as well. Very finely milled, it applies like a dream and blends really effortlessly. I was nervous about how it would look on my pale skin, since it has a deeper hue, but it gives a lovely finish. I'm so glad to have this color in my makeup kit now.
I definitely understand why people love NARS blushers. I'm can safely say that I am a believer now. ;-)
