I ❤ NARS Sin.


You know the feeling when you find a few new products that you really, really enjoy using that it actually makes you excited to do your makeup in the morning? That's how I felt today. It's funny because none of the products are really all that exciting, but I guess I just didn't expect to love them as much as I do. Yay!





Face:
Laura Mercier Mineral Powder in Real Sand
Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage Concealer in SC-3
Maybelline DreamLumi Concealer in Ivory
Bare Minerals Well Rested
NYX blush in Taupe (as contour)
NARS blush in Sin

Eyes:
L'Oreal e/s in Gleaming Bronze (lid)
Burberry e/s in Almond (crease)
UD 24/7 liner in Perversion
Prestige My Blackest Lashes mascara

Lips:
NARS l/s in Dolce Vita
Revlon l/g in Bellini

I've been obsessed with using my Laura Mercier mineral powder foundation lately, not only because it gives a beautiful finish to the skin, but also because it's so quick and easy to use! For mornings when I'm in a rush but still want a bit of foundation, I quickly apply concealer after my moisturizer to areas where I need extra coverage, and then I quickly apply my mineral powder all over. It acts to set the concealer and also adds a bit of coverage. On its own, I'd say it gives light coverage. Since I normally use liquid foundation/tinted moisturizer, concealer, and setting powder, this actually cuts out a step and I save quite a bit of time since I don't need to blend out any liquid foundation :)

The product that I'm loving most right now? Sin. I seriously can't get enough of it. It's such a gorgeous mauvey berry shade with a subtle sheen that just looks amazing on the skin, not unlike most NARS blushes. I'm past the point of trying to coordinate it with the rest of my eye makeup, too. I just do whatever I feel like doing to my eyes, and then I use Sin....regardless of whether or not it goes with the look. Tee hee ;)

I've kind of been switching out the colors that I wear on my lid, but the crease shade has remained a constant: Burberry Almond. It's similar to MAC Wedge, except better. If you're looking for that perfect crease shade that will literally complement any look, you need Almond in your collection...immediately. You can check out my swatches here.

Lastly, Revlon Colorburst Lipgloss in Bellini has been on constant rotation in my makeup routine. It's a really pretty nude that looks fantastic on its own and over pretty much any lipstick shade. I wore it today to tone down Dolce Vita's berry-ness a bit :)

Hope you're all having a nice weekend!

  2. Your makeup looks so fresh and summery, love it! Every time I see a post about Sin, I regret ever returning it, perhaps I need to hit up Sephora soon and give it another try :) Have a great weekend Tiffany <3

  3. Sin looks amazing with your skin tone! Such a pretty healthy flush!

    I just picked up Laura Mercier's Mineral Powder a few days ago after hearing so many good things. So far I'm loving the finish it gives my skin!

  7. Sin looks really beautiful on you! Surprisingly it looks rather muddy on me and less peachy. I haven't touched mine in months! thanks for the reminder!

    Bellini isn't opaque...I'd say it has medium coverage for a gloss. Definitely not too nude!

  10. Gorgeous! I really need to get my hands on Dolce Vita, and Bellini is amazing as well. I have Sin in the Danmari palette and hardly use it, I need to bust it out again!
