NARS Breaking Free Lipstick Swatch

If you think only red lipstick makes a splash, you need to check out NARS Breaking Free lipstick.  This orangy-peach shade is matte and very opaque.  It is such an incredible shade to pair with a tan or darker complexion.  The other lipstick in this collection is named Kiss Me Stupid, described by the brand as a burnt sienna.  Retail price is $28 per lipstick.

NARS Asphalt Jungle Lip Gloss, NARS Wildflower 2017

NARS Asphalt Jungle Lip Gloss, NARS Wildfire 2017

One of my favorite items from this makeup collection is NARS Lip Gloss in Asphalt Jungle.  NARS Lip Gloss in general is such a buttery, decadent-feeling product.  I love it in just about every color, but this neutral shade is a deep brown that leans a bit plum laced with a subtle deep pink shimmer.  It’s such a unique twist on a standard neutral color.  One other shade is available in this collection, a deep earthy red named Aragon.  Retail  price is $26 per lip gloss.

Sonia Kashuk Nail Colours Perfect For Spring

Sonia Kashuk Nail Colour

Sonia Kashuk Nail Colour

Have you ever browsed the shelves of Target’s beauty department?  There are some amazing items available there, most at budget-friendly prices.  There are so many aisles in-store, a beauty addict like me could get lost for hours!  Before you get lost in the abyss, don’t forget you can browse comfortably online while wearing your robe and slippers!  Some of the most amazing products available in the Target beauty department are part of the Sonia Kashuk line.  These two nail polishes immediately caught my eye.  Here in the desert, it feels like spring already, so spring colors are on my mind.  Violetta and Summer Squeeze are great selections if you want to embrace spring color right NOW, regardless of what the weather is.
