Don’t you just love NARS? I know I do! NARS just does everything right. Especially the blushes! I was pretty darn excited when the Matte Multiples released because I just knew they’d be a hit! I’m still in the process of testing these beauties but I still wanted to share some swatches and first impressions with you.Take a look!
I’ve always been quite obsessed with lipstick but I went into frenzy over it last year. I mean, you couldn’t catch me sporting a gloss. It was all lipstick, all the time! While digging through my stash I realized just how many glosses I’ve neglected and decided to bring them back out. Spring is the perfect gloss season! So why not sport some glossy lips?
I try to tell myself I’m going to start wearing eyeshadow everyday but it never really happens. I’m just so lazy these days! All the patting, swiping and blending is just too much work for me sometimes. But you know what’s nice? A good ol’ sexy cat eye. I can do that all day, everyday baby! It’s just my thing. For quite some time I’ve relied on my trusty fave Yves Saint Laurent gel eyeliner but now there’s a new favorite in town. Meet the NARS Black Valley Eye Paint! Continue reading
I’ve always been a NARS gal but the upcoming Adult Swim summer collection has me screaming, “Here NARS! Take my money!” Mr. Francois must be hard at work over there because this collection is just gorgeous. I want pretty much everything! I’m still trying to control my crazy impulse buying but all of that may fly right out the window when Adult Swim releases in stores next month. Have a peek! Continue reading
Hello April, goodbye March! Last month was filled with lots of hauling and stash raiding so I have some new faves on the block and some old goodies. Take a look!
Is it just me or is purple becoming the new black? I just can’t stop wearing it! Whether it’s on my lips or eyes I just can’t get enough. My current purple muse is the NARS Bourbon Street Larger Than Life Eyeliner and it’s just heaven in a stick. Take a look!
It’s no secret I love makeup and all things beauty. It’s just who I am! But the biggest reason behind Fancieland was to be a reference for women who looked like me. There are millions of beauty bloggers all over the world but there are so little who really understand the needs of women of color. Especially those of us with a little bit more pigment. It’s like we get overlooked in the beauty world. Not anymore! When I first started wearing makeup I struggled picking out foundations so I hope my foundation collection will help ladies like me find that perfect shade.
I’m a huge beauty junkie so, of course, I spend a lot of my free time browsing other beauty blogs. It’s my guilty pleasure! Today, Karen over at Makeup and Beauty Blog (love, love, love her blog!) posted about some of her go to products for a “no makeup” look and it inspired me to post about my current everyday essentials!
Thanks to Kim Kardashian everyone is highlighting and contouring for the makeup gods. Now you can too! NARS has released a trio of new (and permanent) blushes that will highlight and contour a wide range of skin tones. They remind me of my Sleek Contour Kit but a little jazzier and, of course, more accessible for us stateside gals. I’m pretty set on contour powders at the moment but I can’t deny that these duos look pretty awesome. Take a look!
Well hello there! I know I’ve been kind of M.I.A. today but that’s only because I’ve spent most of my day browsing the counters at Sephora. There’s nothing like a good ol’ Sephora run! I dropped in to check out some new blushes and walked out with a couple of the new NARS Matte Multiples. Check ’em out!
