Nars Thakoon : Kutki

As you all saw, I had the Nars Thakoon collection on my Cravings wishlist, but I couldn’t bring myself to purchase them all at $18 a pop! So I decided to pick one and just go with it. I chose Kutki, which was the only color sold out in all the Nordstrom stores I had been to! Kutki is a gorgeous creamy, white based blue that can look lighter or darker depending on the lighting…Check out the pictures below:

The formula was a little hard to work with so I had to add some NailTek Extend to thin it out a little bit. Despite the thickness, this color is amazing. Kutki is the perfect blue for this summer…XOXO

My Beauty Favs

There are some make-up products that I absolutely cannot live without!! Well, perhaps I could live without a few of these, but I don’t want to! Check out all of my favorite go-to products at the moment:

  1. Urban Decay Brow Box in Brown Sugar – I use this brow box every single day! It includes everything you need to groom, tweeze and fill-in your eyebrows. It even includes a tiny angled brush!
  2. NARS Sheer Glow Foundation in Trinidad – This foundation goes on very smooth and sheer, which works well for me since I don’t necessarily need full coverage. I normally set it with Mac’s Mineralized Skin Finish.
  3. Mac Mineralized Skin Finish in Deep Dark – I’ve been using this powder for a few years now and I still love it. For days when I don’t want to go through the process of beating my entire face, I will wear this alone instead of foundation. In the sun, it has a little shimmer to it, which gives a nice glow.
  4. NARS Blush in Amour – I just recently purchased this blush, but I am loving it so far. Even though I have to reapply it during the day, I find that it is very pigmented.
  5. Revlon Colorstay Eyeliner Pen in Black – I’ve tried a lot of eyeliners, but I love this one because once you put it on, it does not move! I have oily eyelids so for the most part my eyeliners usually transfer onto my upper lids when I don’t wear eyeshadow. I don’t have that problem with this eyeliner. Feels like I am lining my eyes with a sharpie!
  6. Maybelline Falsies Flared Mascara in Black – I love YSL’s Radical Noir Mascara, but since that is $30 and this one is only $6…I am settling for the Maybelline Falsies Flared! Regardless, this mascara is great. It elongates my lashes and if I apply more than one coat then I get great volume without looking overdone. I definitely think this is one of the best drug store mascaras…
  7. Revlon Lipstick in Fuchsia Fusion – I had been wearing Mac’s Girl About Town, but I find that it can be quite drying so when I heard that Revlon had a color that was similar, I decided to try it. I love this color, it really brightens my face and makes me feel like a true grown up!

I am normally a gloss girl, but somehow lipsticks have crept their way into my life…Lol. I didn’t list any eyeshadows because I haven’t been wearing eyeshadows much lately. When I do, I either use the Urban Decay Naked Palette or the NYX Runway Collection Palette in Champagne and Caviar (both are neutral colored palettes).

A Pop of Color: PINK!!

Pink is no longer exclusively for the prim and prissy! As we are quickly approaching summer, I thought I would do a post on all things pink! I actually don’t wear a lot of pink clothing, but I love pink accessories. Here are some miscellaneous pink things I want to add to my collection for summer…check it out and tell me what you think!

Marc Jacobs Iphone Cover, $28 / Juicy Couture Ipad Cover, $48

NARS Nail Polish, $16 / Make Up Forever Lab Shine, $18 / Michael Kors Chronograph, $160

Beach Sexy Victoria's Secret Swim Suit, $40

 

Marc Jacobs Crossbody Handbag, $525
 

Now if you are not a fan of the color pink, you can add a different pop of color. Let me also say that wearing all this pink together will definitely be overdoing it! However, feel free to pick and choose various items to add to your summer accessories. I just think a pop of color not only helps brighten your look, but it also helps brighten your mood. Happy Shopping!!
