Let me just say NARS is always a Necessity!
I'm not the best at shopping for clothes, I forever have a complex that nothing looks good on me therefore I always opt for make up, because surely that can only enhance and make me feel better? SO after being ill I decided it was time for a treat and I picked up a few things from NARS.
The cult classic of all bronzers, I know you may think I'm late on the bandwagon but let me just correct you - I never picked 'Laguna' because I was always so in love with 'Casino' - It's a richer, warmer bronzed tone and works so much better with my skin tone, it's the ideal colour to contour with and I will forever love it and continue to re purchase it. The reason I decided to add a 'Laguna' to my collection was because I wanted a bronzer that would be just slightly warmer than my skin tone so I could use it as an all over powder. My face has been lacking in colour and looking somewhat, grey? lately.. I'm not sure if it's because I've been run down? Anyways, I decided Laguna would be a great, soft bronze to sweep over my skin for that perfect sun kissed look and that is EXACTLY what I intend on doing.
Casino to Contour, Laguna to Liven things up!
O-M-G The colour! There used to be a time circa 2009 when I was OBSESSED, obsessed I tell you! With Midnight Blue Eyeliner, I used to use MAC's Liquidlast (Now discontinued) in a very similar shade and I absolutely adored it. I'm always mesmerised by the depth of this gorgeous, deep, intense blue it really makes the brown of my eyes pop. This eye paint by NARS is TDF (To Die For) I can't wait to rock this in my daily make up routine. There are so many ways it can be used - As a liner, smudged in to the lash line, as a colour all over the lid - The possibilities are endless and I'm actually considering doing a post on 3 ways to wear this?
What do you think?
Did I need it? For sure I didn't - But as soon as I swept my fingers across the bristles, I knew I had to have it - i'm really fussy when it comes to angled brushes, they have to be the right density combined with the right softness - This was definitely the best of both, so totally a no brainer.
