NARS Audacious Brigitte

NARS Audacious Lipstick in Brigitte | Review

I wasn’t able to make the most of NARS Audacious Brigitte, the last Audacious in my lipstick stash. When I checked all my lipsticks for viability several days ago, I found my tube of Brigitte smelling (mildly) like rancid cooking oil. That said, the texture and color is the same as when I got it. On the NARS website, Brigitte is described as nude rose. I don’t detect any nude or rose to be honest. I would describe the shade medium pink coral. It doesn’t suit my light-medium yellow olive skin tone when applied full-coverage — I think it ages…

My 2015 Winter Color

Day 6: Winter Color 20-Day Lipstick Challenge I always say I don’t care much for seasons and I would wear whatever lipstick I want to wear, whenever I feel like it. However, I haven’t experienced winter, so I don’t know if winter season really invokes feelings of wanting to wear red, plum, or berry. Philippines only has summer and monsoon, and I’ve never been to anywhere where temperatures go lower than 22 degrees Celsius. So for this post, I picked out the color I wore for most of last year’s holiday season — nude. I was probably wearing a lot of nude lipsticks because I was into eye makeup during the last…

NARS Audacious Anna Lipstick Review and Swatches

If you’ve stumbled upon a few of my lipstick posts, you might have already noticed that I’m not one to style and/or take photos of untouched lipstick bullets. Ain’t got time for that. I find taking photos a chore. I don’t derive satisfaction from it. It’s the part of blogging that I just want to get over with. I like talking about makeup more. I imagine that some people get OC-ish for me after seeing the photos on this blog. A few non-blogger friends do go out of their way to tell me when my photos look too dark, too blurry, or too green, etc. At least two of my friends volunteered to correct my…

NARS Audacious Jane Lipstick Review and Swatches

When news first came out that NARS is releasing 40 new lipsticks… I was like: Are any of them matte? No? Hmmmm…. K. But 3 weeks ago, I found myself at the NARS Audacious launch and now we’re here I don’t know if it’s because the lipsticks are really THAT good or because I didn’t have high expectations, probably both.  I was so blown away by the formula and pigmentation that I can’t NOT get at least one of them. I was initially interested in Dominique (because that’s the only shade I remembered). But when I tried it on, it looked grayish…

Foundation Inventory + The Perfect Foundation Tag

The questions for this tag make me feel like a presentor for the Oscars of foundation. Does ‘Oscar’ care for makeup? Let’s name this The Cleopatra instead. (‘And the Cleopatra goes to…’ — has a ring to it, right?). Anyway, here’s a photo of all of my foundations, primers, powders, and a concealer that I mix with a water-based moisturizer. Note: I don’t have the Myra VitaGlow BB Cream anymore because I already gave it away. Best Packaging I admit that my foundation shopping decision-making process is nonsensical. But in all of the times I’ve impulsively purchased a foundation, I’m sure that packaging was never…
