The NARS Guy Bourdin Cosmetic Pochette and Bad Camera Timing

Published in: Daily Photo

NARS Guy Bourdin Cosmetic Pouchette, $75

Having a heart-to-heart with the new NARS Guy Bourdin Cosmetic Pouchette, ba-dum-bump!

This (above) is the face you make when you see the cute hearts on the new NARS Guy Bourdin Cosmetic Pochette…

And this (below) is the face you make when you hear your husband yell, “TABS, NO!” and you turn your head exactly when the camera’s timer goes off.


So El Hub and Tabs were out on the deck yesterday, and when El Hub wasn’t looking, Tabs jumped up on the railing — a strict no-no in our house.

That’s about 20 feet above the ground, and Tabs isn’t exactly an agile circus cat, if you catch my drift. He’s a husky tabby with slow reflexes, or let me put it this way: sometimes when he falls while climbing his cat tower, he does not land on his feet.

El Hub walked over and snatched Tabs up before anything else could happen, but it still gave us quite a scare…

Doesn’t have anything to do with this leather makeup pouch, but it does explain my look of surprise in that picture.


The pouch, which has a zippered closure and a small zippered pocket inside, is limited edition and $75 (yikes!).

I could just tell you the dimensions…but I’d rather tell you what it holds. (OK, I’ll do both. It’s 7.75 inches wide and 4.75 inches long.)

It holds…

  • Six full-sized NARS blushes, or
  • One standard-sized round pressed powder compact, three lipsticks and a blush, or
  • One Fancy Feast Appetizer package (“Tilapia in a delicate broth”) and a handful of Turkey Flavored Temptations Treats.

It’s not exactly cheap at all, but it is pretty cute.

It’s available now at NARS counters, stores and online.

I see you!

    Gosh, that’s a stunning accidental photo! Sadly, the bag is frighteningly expensive. Glad to hear Tabs is ok, though! I have a cat who has similar reflex issues, but she mostly sticks close to the ground. I think she’s a little self-conscious.

    Hi Karen! This comment has nothing to do with this post but I’d really like your opinion. I’m looking into buying the Soleil Tan De Chanel cream bronzer. I’m a NC 42 – 44 in MAC, Do you think this will show up on me?

  4. Sunny says:

    Tabs was such a naughty boy! I’d totally freak out as well!

    Love your makeup in these pics! The pouch is adorable, but I already have way too many to justify spending 75 bucks on one πŸ˜‰

    I love cute makeup bags, but for $75 I think I would rather get a full sized purse.

    Glad to hear Tabs is okay! That would be scary. I guess since he’s the boss, he thinks he can get away with anything. πŸ™‚

    Glad your Hubs caught Tabs before the fall! Nice shot of you anyway. This pouch is OK but you could easily find something similar for a whole lot less money.
