OMG.  So many products to show/review, so little time this week/weekend!  I’m going to do a brief post with quick swatches of everything I received yesterday, and then I’ll try to take the time to get some better photos/comments about each product next week.  Let’s dive right in!

First up is NARS Lip Gloss in Wonder [0.24 oz (7 g)].  I also put MAC’s Lychee Luxe lipglass as a reference point (bottom swatch), because initially I thought they were similar.  Not at all, LL is MUCH more peach.

Next, NARS The Multiple in Laguna [0.5 oz (14g)].  The first shot is what I would imagine it would look like on someone lighter than me (before blending out, of course), and the second shot is what it looked like on my cheekbones this morning when I used it – just imparts a totally believable glow!  Less flashy than the illuminator (but no more or less loved by me).

My photos of MUFE Uplight Face Luminizer Gel [0.55 fl. oz (16.5mL)] did not come out as I wanted, so I’ll have to post that the next time around.

MUFE’s Aqua Liner in #5 [0.058 fl. oz (1.7mL)] is much deeper than is reflected in these photos, and has some awesome shimmer (not glitter, not gaudy, just beautiful shimmer).  What the packaging shows is pretty much what it looks like.  I’m wearing this tomorrow – I think it’ll be perfect on the outer-third upper & lower lash lines!

The Hello Kitty palette contains four eyeshadows and two blush (the blush gets great reviews on MUA).  I’m not sure any of the shades will show up well on my skin, but I’ll give them a try!  These were really hard to swatch as they’re not very pigmented, and the blush on me look identical – sorry!  I’m not super into cutesy stuff either so I’m not really sold, but if I can’t wear the shades, I’m sure I can find a good home for this 🙂

As for the Tarina Tarantino products, I haven’t swatched them yet so those will come next week as well.

What are your thoughts so far?  Some of these items I totally would have bought myself so I’m really pleased (the NARS items for sure).  The HK Palette would never have caught my eye but it’s nice to break out of the same old from time to time.

C’mon weekend!

    Wow, that MUFE liner… every time I see a review my resolve weakens. Damn my asymmetrical hooded eyes!

      Liz (though I bet you’re being hard on yourself :P), what about wearing this liner just on the bottom lashes? It really is quite amazing, the staying power was exceptional and the color is just gorgeous! Even the bf loved it (as we’ve determined MEANS something hehe). Eugenia, I certainly recommend picking this up if you’re a fan of teal liners, it’s awesome! And I haven’t had a chance to wear the gloss yet – it’s JUST starting to get sunny here in Hali and it feels too tropical in the rainy/foggy weather – but I am loving the shade too! I hope you pick it up 🙂

    I love that gloss! Every time I pass the NARS counter, I pick it up, swatch it then walk away. Why do I do that? Well, you’ve convinced me to go pick it up! Wanted to tell you that I went to the Armani counter last weekend to see the eyes to kill shadows but ended up with a mascara instead! Go figure! @Liz…I have a total weak spot for teal eyeliners and can’t help buying every single one I see. Guess I have to add the MUFE one to the list now!
    I’m so thrilled for you Latoya!!! Great swag bag!
