NARS Review

Happy Thursday! Hope you enjoyed the holiday weekend! I attended a wedding of one of my friends that I cheered with in college. It was great catching up with everyone and I caught the bouquet! Well today I'm bringing you a review on a few NARS products I have been trying out. Let's get into the reviews.

I recently became a Sephora VIB member and I received an email about getting this bag with 3 NARS products for spending 35.00 online. I couldn't resist and was so happy to try out some other products by NARS. I have already tried a couple lip products and fell in love with them. The products that came in the bag were the Pro-Prime Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Primer, Pro-Prime Light Optimizing Primer and Orgasm Blush. I have heard so much about each product and couldn't wait to try them.

Pro-Prime Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Primer

This primer has been highly talked about on YouTube. This primer is supposed to help keep your shadows on all day without creasing or smudging. I really like the smooth texture of this primer and how well it blends in. I used this under my Mac Paint Pot and my shadows stayed put all day. I did not see any creasing at all. I really enjoyed using this eyeshadow primer, I may purchase the full size that runs for 25.00

Pro-Prime Light Optimizing Primer

I haven't heard too much about this facial primer but I figured it would be just as good as the shadow primer. I love that this primer has an SPF of 15 for extra protection. This primer is supposed to help your skin have that natural glow and give your foundation that vibrant appearance. The formula is weightless and oil free. I honestly didn't notice that illuminating factor and had to stop using it because it broke my face out. It seemed like a nice primer and my foundation did stay all day and didn't budge. The full size of this primer is 34.00.

Orgasm Blush

I have always wanted to get my hands on this blush for a long time. I have heard nothing but amazing things about it. I just couldn't bring myself to spend 30.00 for one blush! The color of this blush is so gorgeous! I love the peachy color with the golden shimmers. This blush is a bit sheer on me but it gives my cheeks a nice glow. I'm always afraid of applying too much blush but this one I may have to build up a bit. Here is a picture of me wearing the blush if you can tell lol!

Here are swatches of each product mentioned in this post.

Overall, I really liked each product except for the facial primer breaking me out. I think I would invest in the full size products. There are a few other items that I have been wanting to try like the popular concealer. What are some of your favorite NARS products? Have you tried any of the ones in this post? Comment below and let me know. Enjoy the rest of the week and see you guys tomorrow for August Favorites!

I can't believe Starbucks has the Fall drinks out already! I had a Salted Caramel Mocha the other day lol!

It's the last week of class and I believe I will be finishing with a B. This class was a lot of work but I learned so much.

My son started school again and I'm so glad he's full potty trained now! 


  1. Love NARS! In addition to Orgasm, I also love Super Orgasm (with extra sparkles, haha) for a night out on the town.

    1. I'll have to look out for Super Orgasm next time!! Thanks for stopping by B!!

  2. I am in love with Nars products, I def want to try the eye primer as I have also heard such fab things about it.

    1. You should Keisha, I think you would like the primer! Thanks for reading!!

  3. Try scratching off the top textured layer of the blush. You may get better pigmentation under that top layer.

    1. Thank for the tip Tanya! I'll give that a try!! Thanks for reading!

  4. I like your blog!

    1. Thank you so much and thanks for stopping by Larisa!

Morphe Brush Review

Happy Tuesday!! Just can't believe Christmas is next week!! Did you get all your shopping done? I did for the most part, now it's just putting things together lol!! Well this post is going to be a review on Morphe brushes. I'm sure you have heard the name and seen some of your favorite makeup artist using them. I purchased these at IMATS back in April and have been loving them. I already want to purchase more. So let's get into the reviews.


(M411- Pointed Blender and M200-Deluxe Crease)
It is always important to blend, blend blend your makeup!! I do have a few blending brushes but I wanted to have a few backups when I clean them. I love how soft these brushes are and how well they blend out eye shadows. I mainly use the Pointed Blender(black bristles) for the the outer crease and the deluxe crease(brown bristles) for right above my lid. 

(B1-Jumbo Fluffy Brush and M439-Deluxe Buffer)
I normally don't set my foundation with a powder and wanted to start doing s…

September Favorites

I can't get over the fact that October is here and it still feels like Summer. We had a brief Fall weekend but Summer was like Nope, I'm still hanging around lol! Today I am sharing my September Favorites with a special guest. My son has been wanting to film with me for a while so I decided to let him in on the video. Be prepared to laugh!

Have you tried the new Starbucks drink? It seems like it is missing something, like it needed to be sweeter or needed some saltiness. 
They recently opened a Zara in the mall near me! It is so nice in there, I only purchased one dress.

Fro Butter Emu Oil Review

Well I guess Summer is still trying to hold on lol. I was about to pack away all the Summer clothes but I should leave them out I guess. I'll go through all my Fall wardrobe in the meantime to see what I'll need when the weather gets cooler. Today I am sharing my review on Fro Butter Emu Oil. 

I don't know if I told you guys but I am one of Fro Butter's ambassadors for the next 6 months! I was so excited when I got the email about being chosen. You will be seeing post about their products more on here and my Instagram. 
A little background on this company before we hop into the review: 
Fro Butter is a Black Owned Business started in 2012 by owners Susana Stewart and Caroline Maina. They were in the market for affordable and organic hair products and it all started from there. 
I was introduced to this product last year when I received it in my Onyx Box. I really loved the product and so did my husband and son lol. Taken directly from the site, the Emu Oil is designed…
