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!

    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!

Book Review: Dreams Are Built Overnight

Can't believe my birthday is next week, next Monday to be exact! I just want to have a nice, relaxing day. Today I am bringing you another book review (I know, two in one week lol)!

I have to say, I really proud of this guy and everything that he is doing now. I actually went to elementary school with David and he was a pretty cool person(and still is lol). Before this book, he started a company called Sleep Is 4 Suckers which sells apparel with a message behind it. David also expanded into motivational speaking and is a pretty dynamic speaker. I really wanted to support him and read this book because I was really drawn to the title of it.

I honestly did not want to put this book down when I started reading it. I read this book every free moment I had because I really wanted this information to sink in. You can really visualize what David is saying in this book and really picture the message he sharing. He really does drop a lot of amazing knowledge, tips and advice in this book.

Happily Ever Johnson: Registries, Rings and Things

It is crazy how fast this wedding is approaching! I can't believe it is almost February and June will be here before we know it! We have done so much with wedding planning and trying to make sure we have everything covered. First we started with finishing our registries. We started them but it just didn't feel complete. Earlier this month we attended a Sip and Scan event at Macy's. They had representatives from different brands such as Mikasa, Kitchen Aid and All Clad to answer any questions about products and to help you pick out the things you would like to put on your registry. They had a DJ there, passed hors o'derves and mocktails.

Here we are with the scanner having registry fun lol

We didn't have our formal or everyday dinnerware on the registry and finally picked those out. It was hard trying to decide what to go with. For everyday, I was looking for something that was durable since we have a 5 year old and dishware that was going to last. For our formal di…
