Rise and shine, pal o’ mine! Happy Caturday. 🙂 I hope you slept well. I’m still working my way through the NARS Holiday 2016 Collection LE palettes, and the one I’m looking at this morning is the $69 Give In Take Dual-Intensity Eye and Cheek Palette (coming to Sephora Nov. 1st).
Whether you’re warm-toned, cool-toned, Hypercolor-toned or scaly-toned like an alien lizard, you can wear the new $69 NARS Give In Take Dual-Intensity Eye and Cheek Palette, another one of the several palettes in the Sarah Moon for NARS Holiday 2016 Collection.
If I were a humanoid reptile, I’d wear it…but I’m getting sidetracked. Bottom line: You can wear cool-toned shades like these even if you aren’t cool-toned. That’s my personal belief. These shades are very cool-toned — cooler than I expected them to be — but that can be a good thing, even if you’re a warm-toned person like me.
These powders, which are all in the NARS Dual-Intensity formula, don’t have a problem with fallout, and they’re delightfully easy to blend.
They look super pigmented in their pans, and a few of them look very dark, but applied dry they look pretty natural.
That’s the thing about the NARS Dual-Intensity formula. You can wear them wet or dry, but if you apply them with a dry brush, they look quite Bobbi Brown-esque, whereas applied with a wet brush, you get more of that NARS glam.
If you don’t have many wrinkles and fine lines, you might not think about this, but I’ve got some fine lines, and one of the reasons I like the Dual Intensities is that they don’t make my fine lines look…more fine line-y. I feel like I look a little younger and less haggard when I wear them.
I think the blushes are great, too. They aren’t super BAM! like the darker standalone blushes in the Sarah Moon collection.
WHAT IS IT? The $69 Give In Take Dual-Intensity Eye and Cheek Palette from the Sarah Moon for NARS Holiday 2016 Collection
SHOULD YOU GET IT? If you like cool-toned eyeshadows and the NARS Dual-Intensity formula and you DON’T like fallout, I bet you’ll love this palette. Also, if you have any fine line action and don’t like it when your eyeshadow looks heavy, give it a try.
In other news…you wanna know something weird? I was watching a good movie on TV last night called The Ones Below. It’s a suspenseful drama about these two couples who live in the same two-story apartment building. The main character has a baby, and the other woman in the other couple also has a baby, but anyway… I don’t want to give too much away (seriously, it’s good!). Needless to say, something scary happens involving the babies, and it was just too much for me. It was a good movie (it even stars the Governor from The Walking Dead!), but I had to turn it off.
El Hub didn’t believe me at first, but then I was like, “No, really. I don’t think I can watch this.” So we turned it off.
I’m emo now when it comes to anything having to do with babies and pregnancy. I even get hospital flashbacks.
Am I just weird? Does that ever happen to anyone else?
