The NARS And God Created the Woman Eye Kit Is Back…Even Though It Never Really Disappeared

Published in: Daily Beauty

NARS And God Created the Woman Eye Kit (3)

Hey, wait a minute.

If you’re thinking that you’ve seen this $59 three-piece kit before, that’s because you may have.

Kind of.

It was released as a Sephora exclusive last year (it’s actually still available online at sephora.com), except that here it looks like the eyeshadows are playing musical chairs… They’ve been placed in slightly different positions in the palette.

The palette includes…

  • Alhambra Duo Eyeshadow (right side), a metallic rose mist
  • Bellissima Duo Eyeshadow (right side), a matte grayish brown
  • Kalahari Duo Eyeshadow (left side), a shimmering gold
  • Galapagos Single Eyeshadow, a bitter chocolate infused with gold
  • Coconut Grove Single Eyeshadow, a deep taupe brown infused with gold
  • Night Clubbing Single Eyeshadow, a black with golden pearl

NARS carried over the mini Smudgeproof Eyeshadow Base Primer (yay!) from the previous incarnation of the kit but swapped out the flat eyeshadow brush for a travel-sized Wide Contour Brush #43.

Lots of classic NARS eyeshadows in this one… If I were building my dream NARS palette, I’d include most of these shades.

The $59 NARS And God Created Woman Eye Kit arrives August 1 at NARS Boutiques, narscosmetics.com and at department store and specialty store NARS counters.

The Poverty Flats by Rian Perforated Satchel Strikes Again!

Published in: Daily Beauty

Poverty Flats by Rian Perforated Satchel (2)

Last summer I found the most awesome goes-with-anything-and-fits-a-ton purse at DSW — the lightweight Poverty Flats by Rian Perforated Satchel, and I saw it again while cruising DSW today! This time in gray, and on major sale.

Originally $80, it was on sale for $49.95 when I got it in light cream and tan last year. The gray one here is deeply discounted right now to $34.95 (they also have it online in navy blue for the same price).

OK, so this is one of those purses that looks much more expensive than it actually is. Whenever I’m out and about with it, someone usually stops to ask me where I got it, and I’m like, “GUUUUURL! DSW on SALE!” :)

LOL! I’m so my mother’s daughter…

Car Selfies

Published in: Daily Beauty

Three, two, one…CHEEESE!

LOL! I’m pretty sure the trucker who was stuck next to us on Highway 37 in bumper-to-bumper traffic thought I was a weirdo, but whatevs.

I took these last night as El Hub and I were on our way to dinner in Napa for our anniversary.

I literally only had, from start to finish, about 5 minutes to do my makeup before we left the house, so I blazed through this look figuring I’d be able to make any adjustments and fixes in the car on the way to the restaurant.

Of course, me being me, aka “always in a hurry and five minutes late,” I forgot my makeup bag at home.

Doh!

Aaaand, I didn’t realize until after I looked closely at these pics that my brows were a little wackadoo, haha!

Oh, well.

Wish I could say that my makeup always turns out perfectly, but that’s so not the case, especially when I’m rushing.

I did finally get to break in Chanel New Moon, though, which I’m happy about. I patted it on bare lids (didn’t even have time to put down primer), and then smudged MAC Teddy liner on my lash lines.

That’s Chanel Malice on my cheeks and NARS Giza gloss, with MAC Gingerroot Cremestick Liner, on my lips.

Gingerroot is discontinued, but I love it so, so much… I only bust it out for special occasions.
