FOTD with NARS Dogon :)

As not-so-subtly suggested by the title...

A happy closed-eye shot...

...and an indifferent closed-eye shot :)


Face:
Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation in #52 (thanks, J., for the super generous sample!)
Sonia Kashuk Hidden Agenda Concealer Palette
Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer in Light (under-eyes)
Maybelline Dream Matte Powder in Sand
Benefit Hoola
NARS blush in Douceur
Dior Amber Diamond

Eyes:
UDPP
NARS eyeshadow duo in Dogon
UD e/s in Naked
UD e/s in Buck 
MAC e/s in Brule
UD e/s in Virgin 
MAC eye kohl in Teddy (I. Love. This. So. Much.)
L'Oreal Voluminous mascara
Covergirl Lash Blast mascara

Lips:
Buxom l/g in Sandy (The perfect nude lipgloss!)

 DOGON

MAC Club eyeshadow (far left, for comparison purposes) and NARS Dogon eyeshadow duo 

Club and the silvery shade in the Dogon duo are similar in that they have the same green duochrome sheen, but they have completely different base colors: Club has a red-brown base and the silver in Dogon has a silvery-taupe base. They're definitely not dupes at all though...I like to think of them more as very distant cousins :)

The other shade in the Dogon duo looks like a blackened teal in the pan but when swatched and worn, it's more like a really dark, charcoal-black and any trace of teal is not really detectable. And since I haven't blogged in a while, I've become so awesome that I actually forgot to take a picture of the actual duo itself! So helpful, right?! My bad ;)

Close-up of Dogon in action, complete with mascara smudged on the eyelid :)


I've been so busy lately with school that I pretty much only ever have time to wear makeup on the weekends now, so I kind of went to town with the abundance of products today :)

I also made little pit-stops at Ulta and Target today where I picked up a tube of Prestige My Blackest Lashes Mascara, which was on sale for less than $3.90 (total steal!), and Revlon Facets of Fuchsia nail polish, a black with hot pink glitter and hexagonal confetti...just keepin' it classy! My hope for the mascara is that it'll be as good as L'Oreal Voluminous minus the smudging problem. Have any of you tried it and if so, what did you think of it? I'd love to hear your thoughts :)

I hope everyone is having a fantastic weekend!

  5. Very pretty!
    The NARS eyeshadow duo looks very interesting - I need to look more into it.

    Did you do anything different to your hair? The color + length = very flattering!

  6. You are simply stunning. Dogon looks like a phenomenal duo- I can actually see a touch of deep teal in that darker shade when you are wearing it. It is really interesting and flattering on you. PS Boxum Sandy is the bomb.

  7. Tiffany, you look a-may-zing! I am crazy about your hair!! I think the red combined with this eye makeup is enhancing your eyes in just a totally gorgeous way. Probably my favorite look you've done!

  8. ooh it looks so pretty! just wondering, what eyeshadow did you use on your eyebrows?

  9. LOVE this look tiffany. you look beautiful! your skin looks flawless and i love dogon on you. and you are right, that gloss is the PERFECT shade on you. i have tried my blackest lashes, i really like it. much more than voluminous. i have no problems with smudging, and if i accidentally get some on my face it comes off really easily.

  10. I love this look! Funny, I was thinking how amazing your skin looks, and then I saw Bourjois Healthy Mix - that stuff is seriously amazing! I love the third pic from the top - you have such gorgeous lips and your cheeks look perfectly sculpted! I haven't tried My Blackest Lashes but it's definitely one I want to try at some point - I'm having a lovefest with Benefit's I'm Real at the moment.  Oh, by the way, I finally got an eyelash curler (the Sonia Kashuk one) - I'm really liking it so far!

  12. I forgot one thing! As you well know, I've been neglecting my blog since my Mom got into town last Monday, but I was like, "Well, I think Tiffany hasn't posted in over a week, too, so I'm good for now..." (enabling my laziness!) but now you just haaad to post something! haha! I'm hopefully going to have a new post up tomorrow - no more slacking!

  22. Thank you! No, I haven't done anything different to it recently. I had it trimmed in July and I think it's probably just growing out nicely :) I also last dyed it in July.

  23. I use most MAC Wedge with a touch of MAC Mystery :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. Yay, thanks, Kelly! I can't wait to give it a try now :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. I can't believe you weren't using an eyelash curler before! It's such a necessity for my short, straight lashes...yours must just be amazing already on their own :)

  26. Thank you!! I haven't done anything different to it recently :-/ I think it's probably just growing out nicely! Yay!

    You're glowing! Grad school may be stressful, but it's certainly doing you wonders :) I'm also IN LOVE with Dogon, and it pains me to think that I almost passed on it! The shades are so perfect for the fall and winter, I plan on getting a LOT of mileage out of the duo this year.

    ♥ Jessica

    I love how this brightens up the eyes but at the same time it's kind of subtle. I really want to get NARS Dogon now!

  33. You definitely should! I'm especially in love with the silvery shade...it's amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Thanks, Jordan!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Thank you! Yeah, I noticed that you *can* see some of the teal come through when I'm wearing it, but still not so much when I swatch it for some reason. I'm so glad you love Buxom Sandy too!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Oh my gosh, thank you so much!!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I agree...I love this duo!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I just used the mascara for the first time today and I could tell already that it was pretty amazing :)

    ReplyDelete
  39. Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  40. haha, really? Thank you! I think the lip gloss makes my lips look fuller :)

    ReplyDelete
  41. Aww, thank, hun! I'll definitely let you know what I think of it. I used it for the first time today and really like it so far :) x

  42. Thank you, Jamilla!

    ReplyDelete
  43. *blushes* Thank you, Reb!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Thank you, Kelly! I usually don't buy NARS eyeshadows unless I feel like I *have* to have them because they're so expensive otherwise....Dogon is definitely worth it, in my opinion!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Thank you so much, Amy!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Thank you!!

    ReplyDelete
  47. I think it's because grad school is SO stressful that when I have a weekend off without having to study, I'm literally glowing with excitement! haha! And I almost passed on Dogon too - I'm so glad I had some sense knocked into me and purchased it before it was no longer available :)

    ReplyDelete
  48. Hair, makeup, smile, everything in these FOTD pics are just flawless!

    ReplyDelete
  49. This look is gorgeous! NARS Dogon is so pretty - I spent a lot of time this summer trying to find blogs that used it in 'face of the day' posts and yours is great!

    ReplyDelete
  50. This looks great!

    ReplyDelete
  51. You should definitely check it out! I'm surprised by how much I like it, actually :)
