NARS Love Rite Set

I've only ever tried lipsticks from NARS before, so when I came across this set for £39.00 I thought now would be the time to become familiar with there products and there brand (I also deserved a treat). This set contains- 
 Mini Amour/Desire Blush Duo – peachy pink, delicate bright pink
Medium Orgasm Illuminator – peachy pink with golden shimmer
Medium Turkish Delight Lip Gloss – pink sorbet
Medium Greek Holiday Lip Gloss – sparkling pink sand

If you also would like to treat yourself to this set just click below

The pigments of these blushers are really strong so the smallest amount goes a long way. I apply the blush to a blusher brush and then shake off the excess and apply to the apples of my cheeks and then blend up the cheek bone.
These lip gloss's have a very silky texture and are not to sticky which I tend not to like. The light pink nude gloss I prefer over a lipstick as I find on my lips it looks to white. This all depends on your natural lip colour. The golden gloss looks really pretty without a lipstick underneath and looks lovely with a more natural bronzed look.
The lovely packaged set.
I have officially fallen in love with NARS illuminator. I apply the illuminator over my foundation to my cheekbones and forehead and it gives you an effortless glow. I always worry that applying an illuminator over  my foundation wont blend but this one just blended immediately. This is defo a make up bag/kit must have!

Illamasqua Precision Ink in Scribe

Last month Illamasqua released there long awaited new collection, Human Fundamentalism. This collection really shows off what there brand is all about, being individual and expressing what's on your inside on the outside. The product from this collection that stood out the most for me was there Precision Ink in Scribe. This isn't just your average eye liner, you can also use it on your nails. I have found it really easy to use and has actually changed my mind on liquid liner (I've always preferred gel liner). I have added a direct link below
In this picture I have applied one coat of  Barry M nail polish in 279 Bright Pink, left to dry for a minute and then dotted on Scribe for a polka dot effect.
In this picture I have applied a gel black liner to my lower lid, I also applied this to my lower waterline.
I then went above the black kine with Scribe and also applied this as liner underneath my waterline.
To make the lines look neater I went over the black line afterwards. I used a black mascara and clumped my lashes together to look spikey. Pair this with a bright pink lipstick for striking look, I went for a No7 limited edition lipstick in Blooming Pink.
