NARS Sarah Moon The Mind Game Velvet Lip Glide

After getting the full sized Velvet Lip Glide in Bound, I knew I wanted more and the best way was to to get the coffret set which contains 6 mini Velvet Lip Glides. I did not mind that this set consist mainly of dark shades because I love them although it would have been nice to see a bright plum and pink thrown in for more variety.

I love the Velvet Lip Glide formula. It is not a matte liquid lipstick instead it gives a shine. Although they don't last quite as long, they are very comfortable on the lips and do not dry my lips out.

Becca Luminous Blush Camellia

I love these Becca Luminous Blushes to bits so during the Sephora 20% sale I decided to pick up Camelia.

Left to right: Camellia and Foxglove
When I opened it up and placed it side by side with Foxglove which I already owned, I realised how close both colours were. Camelia being a tad lighter. So don't make the mistake of getting both, the differences are way too minimal to notice once they are on your cheeks.

I love how glowy it is, I did not apply any highlighter at all.

Becca Luminous blushes are finely milled and blend very easily, although they are not super pigmented, you cannot over apply with these which makes them really easy to use. 

Do you own any?

NARS Sarah Moon Shadow Side Eye Set: Mini Velvet Shadow Sticks: Lucid Dream, Real Surreal and Nunavut

The Nars Sarah Moon Shadow Side Eye set was an incidental buy. I only wanted the Glass Metropolis set but somehow the SA there talked me into getting this. I love cream eye shadows especially stick versions and look at how cute these were. For $56, I get three mini shadow sticks and a mini mascara. I thought it was quite worth the while.

Lucid Dream, Real Surreal and Nunavut

These shadow sticks are creamy and blend very easily. I use my fingers to blend these. They don't dry down too fast so I have time to blend them to my heart's content. They stay put on my lids without creasing, smudging or fading after the entire day.

Lucid Dream all over the lids

Real Surreal on the lids

Nunavut close to the lash line

NARS Velvet Lip Glide Bound

I was not very impressed with these the first time I swatched them at the NARS counter at Tangs. They looked really dry and did not swatch well. The second time I went to get the Sarah Moon Glass Metropolis set, the SA there helped me to swatch Bound and Unspeakable, this time around they looked smooth and pigmented. I guess it has to do with the fact that the ones I swatched were used by so many people that they dried up.

Needless to say I got Bound and promised myself I would go back and get a few more shades.

Bound is a lovely natural rose mauve shade that is just right on my skin tone. It is not a traditional matte liquid lipstick, instead it imparts a satiny shine. This is the colour I wear most often if I want a no fuss easy going casual colour. It is not drying but it is not long wearing either. It does not leave my lips parched or dry after wear.

The doe foot applicator makes it really easy to apply this straight off the tube.

I have my eyes on more velvet lip glides. Do you own any? What is your favourite shade?
