Bronzers are staples in my every day routine. I can’t remember the last time I went without it, but I can’t imagine ever doing so again. It’s one of those steps that really makes all the difference when you feel like your face needs a little somethin-somethin. While preparing for this review, I took some before-and-after pictures with a full face of makeup on sans bronzer; getting ready and looking at the photos really solidified how important bronzer was, in my opinion! So today, I wanted to discuss a new bronzer which NARS came out with, the NARS Vallarta bronzer. So without further ado, let’s get into my thoughts!
NARS always gets me with their beautiful, curated face palettes. I will admit that I did get this one on a whim – I actually had my eyes on the NARS Free Lover palette, but I made a swift executive decision to get the Overlust palette instead. Why? I can’t say for sure. I’m always on the hunt for the perfect warm nude blush, and this was just right up my alley.
On an editorial note, I’d like to try a different format with my reviews this time around. More specifically, I’d like to make them more to-the-point. So, as usual, read on if you’d like to know what the deal is with this palette!
Well, I’ll cut right to the chase: it has been almost 2 years since my last blog post! What happened? Life. Life happened. Maybe someday I will get into what has been going on in the last 24 months (all good things, for the most part!), but today I will say goodbye to 2019, and the 10s with a short and sweet post.
Even though some time has passed, I was, and remain, a makeup obsessed person. So naturally I collected a small heap of products, with a few thoughts and opinions to go with them as well. To start, I’d like to share something I usually find very useful: swatches. Today, it will be swatches of all the foundations I currently own. I’m hoping that this will be of help to anyone who shares a similar skin tone to me.
As you all know by now, I am a huge sucker for anything by NARS. One of my favourite foundations happens to be by NARS, so when I learned that they were releasing a brand new one, I immediately went to the Sephora site to get my grubby little hands on it. Unfortunately, I had to wait a couple of months before I could buy it since it was only released late last month on the Sephora website. But alas, I got it, I tried it, and now I have a review for it! If you are curious about my thoughts on this new foundation, please keep reading.
