I've been drooling over NARS Outremer since I first laid eyes on it and knew it had to be mine. I also picked up NARS Schiap lipstick because I swatch it every single time I go to Sephora and somehow never manage to leave with it. I decided enough was enough and finally gave in. I'm so happy that I did!
Although Schiap is certainly not for the faint of heart, I was surprised at how wearable it is once applied. Of course, wearability is subjective because I regularly wear Beauté Flouron to work. Initially when I purchased this I figured it might be too bright for daytime but would be perfect for my family's upcoming Christmas trip to Vegas. But provided I keep the rest of my makeup fairly neutral, I think this will be a lovely shade to wear day or night. I really am kicking myself for not purchasing it sooner.
As I mentioned, I also purchased NARS Outremer. I know you've all been inundated by swatches and photos of this one, so I'll spare you. Here are a few shots of my first experimental look with Outremer. I just slapped it on over the makeup I'd been wearing all day. I will say that this isn't the easiest shadow to work with, but the color makes it completely worth the effort.
I know i look a little clowny with both Outremer and Schiap on, but I wouldn't pair those in the future, I was just too lazy to remove my lipstick! xD So far Outremer is total LOVE. I can't wait to experiment more with it. Hopefully I'll have a real FOTD to show you eventually.
Finally, here's one last shot of my current nail polish. I purchased OPI for Sephora Only Gold For Me today with my NARS goodies and it was too pretty not to slap a couple coats on my ring fingers. I love the effect and I'm trying to decide if I should do the same to the rest of my nails. The base color is Essie's Absolutely Shore, which I am also positively in LOVE with. Some of you might remember my mid-summer quest to make my nails look like seafoam milk glass and this is so close to perfect that I feel like I can stop my frantic search.
So that's my little haul. I love buying just a few things instead of a bunch. I feel like I get to savor those first swatches more when I only have a couple new things to try out. That said, I hauled a LOT from MAC's fall collections, so stay tuned for my post on all of the things I couldn't live without.
Thanks for stopping by! <3
