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.
