Searching For: Adele’s Grammy Lipstick

Friday, April 6th, 2012
By Glinda

Everyone’s friend raincoaster recently sent out a desperate call for help regarding Adele’s pinky-peach lipstick at her recent Grammy performance.

Not to keep bringing up NARS, but I suggested her lip color might be some combination of NARS Orgasm lip gloss/lipstick.

Anyone else have a theory?


Product Reveiw: NARS Blush in Amour

Thursday, April 5th, 2012
By Glinda

Oh, how I resisted jumping on the NARS blush bandwagon.  I mean, everybody was doing it and I didn’t buy one just to be ornery.

Instead of proudly standing against the crowd, I found out I was just plain stupid.

Seriously the best blush I’ve ever used.

The color is described on Sephora as a “peachy pink” sans shimmer, which is what I was looking for.  On the website, the color swatch looks more intense than the uber famous Orgasm, which is also what I was looking for.  My medium, olive-y skin takes color well and light blushes look silly on me.

So with trepidation I ordered Amour, and wore it for the first time to a party and could not believe how wonderful it looked.  It was natural-looking but gave me a perfect glow.  It is also eminently buildable, for as dramatic a look as you want.

It wore very well throughout the night with zero touchups, but I also attribute that to my great powder and the fact that it was cold.

I would totally recommend this blush to pretty much anyone.
