NEW NARS Pure Sheer Lip Treatment, Eyeshadow Base and Face Prep

I know that a lot of people were disappointed with NARS summer 2010 makeup collection Belle de Jour but maybe you will be happy to find out that NARS has 3 new products. All of them are available at Sephora. But Sephora has only 4 Lip Treatments out of 6 (Nordstorm has all 6).

Speaking of NARS, today I got a Mounia blush at a blog sale, I also wanted to get 2 double shadows but someone bought them just before me ( as well as YSL palette that I wanted) and I am still upset because I am big fan of NARS shadows. This is the first time that I got something in a blog sale by the way. And do you take part in blog sales?

I also made photos of several NARS items that I have and I will try to write reviews soon. But back to the new products.

NARS ‘Pure Sheer’ Lip Treatment SPF 15, $25

Impervious to summer sun, NARS Pure Sheer Lip Treatment hydrates, nourishes, repairs and pampers…effortlessly. Buffered with SPF 15 and moisturizing mango butter, it soothes and softens, protecting lips throughout the day. Six subtle yet sublime tinted shades—think mauve, cantaloupe, strawberry, pearl and pinks—caress your lips. Lush and lingering, they’re equally comfortable on their own or underneath your signature NARS lip color. Sexy and safe lips—who said you can’t have it both ways?

Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base, $24

A lightweight primer that creates a seamless canvas that keeps cream and powder eye color looking brilliant, fresh, and just-applied all day. This smudge-proof eyeshadow base uses a unique polymer and mineral powder blend to get a firm grip on color for long-lasting, gorgeous wear. Fortified with a special deep-sea extract and an antioxidant rice extract, it dries on contact and keeps the delicate eye lid smooth and ready for eyeshadow application.

Skin Smoothing Face Prep, $30

    5 Black Eye Shadows by Lancome, NARS and Urban Decay: Swatches and Review

    Black eye shadow is a must have for every woman! Today I’ve picked up 5 shades by Lancome, Urban Decay and NARS. I will tell you my opinion(this is not a detailed review just several words) and will show you swatches. To find out more about the shadows and to get your own click on the image.

    1)Color Design by Lancome in Statuesque, $17

    I have 9 Lancome Color Design shadows and I like them all. I love almost everything that I have by Lancome (and I have a lot) and these shadows are also great. But you will need to use this shade several times to get a real intense colour.

    2)Matte Eyeshadow by Urban Decay in Perversion, $17

    Great matte shadow, intense and stays on for a long time. I love matte shadows by Urban Decay!

    3) Deluxe Eyeshadow by Urban Decay in Zero, $18

    It is worth getting this  eye shadow at least because of the design. All shades have different design and the products is amazing.

    4) Eyeshadow by Urban Decay in Oil Slick, $17

    Inspiration Of The Month: Belle De Jour

    Have you see Belle de Jour with the fabulous Catherine Deneuve? You should if the answer is no! If you want to know what the movie is about  – you can read it here. I can’t say that this is my favourite movie or that I really enjoyed it but  I absolutely loved is how Catherine Deneuve looked like!  Her makeup hair, nails ans style are absolutely amazing!  Most of all I loved the eye makeup! No wonder that  Séverine is now a cult beauty icon!  Did you know that Spring 2010 makeup collection by NARS was also inspired by Catherine but in  La Chamade ?

    What a beautiful look:

    You can also find a gorgeous nude lipstick by NARS called Belle de Jour

    And here is how Amber Valletta looked like for the NARS 15×15 project. Amazing! Just like Catherine Deneuve!
