Nars 2012 Collection is coming!

I always love the spring/summer collections the most! I am more into the nartural look with maybe a few brights thrown in!  This collection looks like its going to be amazing! It will be available online April 15th!

This is what Nars had to say about the collection,
"Summer brings with it a cocktail of warm earth tones and brazen shimmers. Eyes glisten in icy peach and matte apricot, or shine in iridescent orchid and blue. Lips are subtle in a glossy nude beige pink, or bold in a matte strawberry red. A delicate seashell pink lends nails a flattering hue for an overall look that's sizzling, sophisticated and -like so many summery moments - simply unforgettable."

This collection includes:
Blush,  $27 - Liberté
Velvet Gloss Lip Pencil, $24 -Buenos Aires
Velvet Matte Lip Pencil, $24 -Never Say Never
Soft Touch Shadow Pencil, $24 -Calabria
Nail Polish, $17 -Trouville
 Lipstick, $24 -Vendanges
Pure Matte Lipstick, $25 -Moscow
Trio Eyeshadow, $45 -Ramatuelle
 Duo Eyeshadow, $33 -Marie Galante

I will definitely be picking up the eyeshadows, nail polish, and the velvet gloss pencils (love them!)

Burberry Makover!

Happy St. Patricks Day everyone!
Sorry I've been MIA lately!  Ive just been so busy I haven't been doing anything exciting with my makeup so I havent had much to share. Today I went to the Burberry counter today after seeing Sandra's post about Pale Barley eyeshadow.  Oh boy did I end up getting more than that! I had one of those great makeup artists, that is so talented and knows exactly what you want!  I had asked about Pale Barley and she put this look together with the following items.


(pardon my unruly brows)

Sheer Foundation in Trench No06
Fresh Glow illuminator- on eyelids and cheekbones
Nude Bronzer
Blossom #5 blush

Pale Barley eyeshadow No22
Rosewood eyeshadow No09
Midnight Brown eyeshadow (in outer corners) No21
Golden Brown eyeliner no 6 (she used this under my eye and in my waterline)
Midnight Brown eyeliner No02
black mascara
Tulip Pink No27 lipstick

I LOVED the golden eyeliner on my waterline! I have tried white and beige eyeliners and always thought it looked a little odd.  The golden color takes away from any redness I have and just looks nice and soft and smokey!  I bought all the eye products, the lipstick, and another brighter lipstick.  The MUA was nice enough to give me samples of the foundation and fresh glow, which I may go back and get!

If anyone lives near Paramus definitely check out Araceli at the Burberry Counter!
