Currently Loving #3


Two months on from my last post, I thought I'd update you all on a few products that have been gracing my loved list over the past couple of weeks.

First up is the Narsissist palette from NARS. I don't think I fully appreciated all of the shades in here when I first started using it, but now I remember why I bought it in the first place. Ashes to Ashes, All About Eve, Fez and Lhasa are my favourites out of the palette, but there are so many different looks you can come up with - for day and evening makeup. I think it's still available to buy, but I'm not entirely sure!

The Sleek CC Cream* has been a godsend since I received it. I've been hunting for the perfect base for me for a few months now, but this really has it covered. Although it requires a hefty bit of blending to work it into the skin, the result is worth it. 

Towards the middle of March my lips started becoming chapped, dry, tight and generally very uncomfortable. I decided to chuck the Maybelline Baby Lips I was using at the time into the bin and replace it with the Nuxe Reve de Miel lip balm in stick form. I do think the pot has a thicker consistency, but I generally prefer stick balms as they're less messy.

Last on the list is Essie's Cocktail Bling nail polish. Arguably more of a Winter shade, Cocktail Bling is a grey-blue that leans toward one or the other in certain lights. The formula of this is outstanding, two coats for opaque coverage and I'm pretty sure this is the longest lasting polish I own. It took almost a week before it began to chip without a top coat! Seriously impressive stuff.

  3. I really like the Nuxe lip balm in both forms but I've been using the stick so much lately as it's easier to wear in the daytime :) xx

  5. I'm currently wearing Essie Chinchilly which is a bit of a winter shade as well but I love it so much, I wear it year round! Something about grey based shades are just so chic.

  6. That is a really pretty palette but I don't like how it hasn't got the shades named on the front like the Naked palettes.
