Nars Vallarta Matte Bronzer Review

Nars is one of my favourite brands and they do cheek products extremely well so when they came out with the Matte Bronzing Powders a couple of months ago I was extremely tempted. I am big fan of the Sun Wash Diffusing Bronzer in Falaises so at first I couldn’t decide on the shade not being able to go into store. I have way too many bronzers but after months of toying with the idea of purchasing this one, I finally bit the bullet and definitely don’t regret it. If you were considering it as well, despite these coming out in with the Laguna Collection, I believe these are part of the permanent range for now.

The Browny Nude Lip Line Up

Admittedly I’m not very adventurous when it comes to lip colours and would happily just wear a browny nude of sorts for the rest of my life. If you’ve followed me for a while, you might know that my all-time favourite browny nude is the Nars Audacious Lipstick in Barbara but because I’m trying to get through my lipstick in my project pan, I’ve decided not to repurchase it until I’m happy with my collection. That aside, I also have plenty of browny nude options left in my collection and I wanted to share my favourites with you in this post. Continue reading “The Browny Nude Lip Line Up”

Swatching All My Bronzers and Contours For Fair Skin

I have definitely developed a bit of an obsession with bronzer buying ever since brands started coming out with more than two shades and this post is a proof of that. I figured it would be a good point of reference for anyone who might be looking for a bronzer/contour especially if you have a fair complexion like mine. For reference, I use shade 100 in the Fenty Hydrating Foundation and 0.1 in the Smashbox Studio Skin Foundation. I have yellow undertones so I like pinkier bronzers because yellow tones make me look sallow. For the purpose of this post, I decided to include any product in my collection that I use as a bronzer or contour and grouped them in three main categories so if it’s more of fair playing field.

Minimal Makeup Bag: If I Could Only Keep One in Every Category

Even though I love beauty, I often feel like my collection got a bit out of hand recently and I wish that I had much less variety in some of the categories. In turn, I thought it’d be fun to go through my collection and pick one product in each category that I would keep if I had to only choose one. Now I wanted to be quite free with the selection so I didn’t exclude limited edition products or only picked the products I’ve used the most in that category. I am however excluding past favourites that didn’t get re-purchased (yet) because I still have some self-restraint. Continue reading “Minimal Makeup Bag: If I Could Only Keep One in Every Category”

Rolling Project Pan Update #5

It’s no surprise that I have abandoned this blog for the last half a year while trying to figure out things in my life. Admittedly, the biggest reason why I stopped blogging was because I felt I was buying too much makeup and didn’t feel good about where my collection was going. But the truth is I love makeup and always finding myself coming back so here we are. I thought I’d start with a project pan update because while I pretty much stopped tracking all the products per se, I finally hit my goal on one very challenging product. I am also having a bit of an overhaul of the project so this will be a long post. Continue reading “Rolling Project Pan Update #5”
