Self-Care Beauty Favorites to Relax and Unwind

January 12, 2022

Self Care Beauty Favorites from Nordstrom

Sharing a few of my self-care favorites in my weekly routine to help me relax and unwind! For me the best kind of relaxing self-care treat is to take a nice long bath with a good candle, bath soak or scrub and a luxury face mask. I also love a good body cream or oil to hydrate the skin. I’ve partnered with Nordstrom to share some of my go-to’s along with some new discoveries that launched recently for the new year!

Replica Lazy Sunday Morning Shower Gel and Bubble Bath Candle

I love fresh clean scents for the bath and if you’re a fan of clean powder linen scents then I recommend checking out the Replica Lazy Sunday Morning scent which now comes in a Shower Gel format. The Replica Bubble Bath Candle is another new favorite. It has a soft powdery floral kind of vibe that’s super relaxing for the bath.

Diptyque Chamomille Candle

You girls know I’m the biggest fan of Diptyque and their candles are my favorites. Some new scents for spring launched with a beautiful pattern design on the outside. Chamomille is one I picked up recently and thought it would be perfect for an evening relaxing scent. It has a green floral kind of vibe and I love it. Other new ones with the limited-edition design include Roses and Litchi – all of which I think are stunning!

Herbivore Botanicals Coconut Soak + Ouai Scrub

For the bath I love a good bath soak and scrub. The Herbivore Botanicals Coconut Soak is one of my favorites for a skin-softening soothing treat. It’s pricey but one I have repurchased many times and love.

Another tried and true is the Ouai Scalp and Body Scrub. It has sugar crystals and is scented in in a sweet kind of scent. You can use this on the scalp and body, but I mainly use it on the body for a luxurious body exfoliator.

Best Self Care Body Treatments Necessaire, La Mer, Sisley

For body treatments the best of the best I’ve tried is the Sisley Velvet Nourishing Body Cream with Saffron Flowers. It has the best texture and feel for my skin and doesn’t have a sticky feel so I can wear it to bed comfortably without sticking to the sheets!

Sisley Velvet Nourishing Body Cream

I’ve loved La Mer and have been rationing my Body Creme samples and minis that I have. It’s one of the most luxurious body creams I’ve tried and I noticed they recently launched it in a Body Creme Tube (6.7 oz) so I splurged and couldn’t be happier. It has an ultra rich smooth texture and I think it’s 100% worth the splurge. It’s also available in the Body Creme Jar 10 oz size and Reparative Lotion 5.4 oz format.

Self-Care Body Treatments Necessaire, Sisley, La Mer, Kopari

A few other more affordable body treatments I really like include the Necessaire Body Oil (super thick and emollient, unscented), Necessaire Body Lotion (also unscented and lightweight) and the Kopari Ultra Restore Body Butter (sweet coconut scented but thick and lush).

Hand Creams Replica, L'Occitane, Diptyque

I’ve tried a few newer hand creams recently. I love the purse-size Replica Lazy Sunday Morning Hand Cream which is heavily scented in the powdery clean scent.

For those with dry hands I think L’Occitane makes the best formula to make a huge difference in skin texture and hydration. I am never without one of the smaller tubes (love these in their Hand Cream Trio). I bought the newest Youth Hand Cream Serum-in-Cream with their Immortelle Flower blend. It’s a really beautiful formula with a silky smooth texture. Smells just like their Immortelle skincare line.

If you love Diptyque perfumes they have a number of hand creams in their best selling scents. I love the Do Son Hand Cream for a unique mix of tuberose, orange blossom and jasmine.

Best Rose Face Masks Fresh and Sisley

Last but not least I love a good hydrating face mask to calm the skin and finish off my self care routine at night. I love rose face masks for their soothing properties and my two go-to’s for glowing skin are the Fresh Rose Face Mask (nice for a weekly pick me up) and Sisley Black Rose Cream Mask (splurge).

New Year Self Care Favorites from Nordstrom

That wraps up my self care favorites from Nordstrom! Would love to hear about your favorites right now. Do you have any self-care rituals to help you relax and unwind?

Nordstrom Holiday Gift Ideas for the Hostess + Home

I’m excited to share a Holiday Gift Guide today with some cute finds from Nordstrom for the Hostess and Home. There are so many fun seasonal scents this time of year for candles, shower gels, hand soaps and diffusers! For the new home owner or for the hostess you can’t go wrong bringing a chic candle (or set), fancy hand washes, room sprays or diffusers.

Nordstrom Holiday Gift Ideas for the Hostess + Home

NEST

NEST Holiday Sets Mini Candles and Diffuser

Nest has some beautiful options I think have excellent throw and festive notes. I love their Festive Votive Candle Set ($48) with 3 votives in Holiday, Birchwood Pine and Blue Cypress & Snow. The Festive Petite Diffuser Set ($54) is super cute! There are a few variations and I ordered the one with Birchwood Pine, Holiday and Spiced Orange and Clove. I got this as a gift but will probably order one for myself too.

Holiday Gift Ideas for the Hostess + Home Nest, Diptyque, Jo Malone

JO MALONE

Jo Malone White Moss and Snowdrop Candle

Jo Malone always has beautiful holiday options. I literally want them all but opted to try the White Moss and Snowdrop Candle ($74) which is a beautiful soft delicate scent. It’s hard to describe but it’s fresh, moss-like with a white floral vibe. This is the perfect holiday scent for those who don’t like pine or gourmand scents in their home. I think their Pine and Eucalyptus is a classic for holiday. They have it in a Scent Surround Diffuser ($105) and Room Spray ($74) too.

MOLTON BROWN

Molton Brown Holiday Cracker Bath and Shower Gel Set

Molton Brown has the best hand soap sets and mini shower gel sets! I think these are versatile for any age and style. Their Holiday Cracker Bath and Shower Gel Set ($25) makes for the perfect stocking stuffer. They also have a Men’s Cracker Set ($25) and if you want to splurge the Stocking Filler Collection ($50) has 10 minis.

I love their hand soap sets. The Citrus & Fruity Hand Trio ($75) is a beautiful gift set option. I also love their Orange and Bergamot Hand Duo ($55).

AESOP

Aesop Adventurer Roll Up Set

Another great brand for hand care is Aesop. I love their sets especially during the holiday. Anyone can use some extra love and care for their hands these days and I love their Adventurer Roll Up Set ($67) which comes with their Resurrection Rinse Free Hand Wash, Hand Mist and Aromatique Hand Balm in a canvas rolled pouch.

You can’t go wrong with their hand soap. I swear by their Resurrection Hand Wash ($39), also available in their Advocate Set ($105).

DIPTYQUE

Diptyque Sapin Candle Holiday 2021

I’ve saved my favorite for last with Diptyque! I look forward to their holiday scents every year and I think the design this year is one of the most stunning! I love the festive design and the full-size candles come with a gold lid this year. Sapin ($42- 78) is their classic smoky pine I think everyone should try. There are two other scents which are lovely in Biscuit (smells like a gingerbread cookie!) and Flocon (floral). Love their Candle Set ($126) which is a trio of the small holiday candles.

Diptyque Holiday Candle Set Trio Small 2021

Last but not least if you’re looking for a splurge gift to impress, the large Baies Candle ($195 for 21 oz) comes in a beautiful matte vessel with 3 wicks. Their Hourglass Diffusers ($195) make for a beautiful accent piece with great throw that you can control when you turn the hourglass around. Their latest addition for holiday is their Glass Reed Diffuser ($190) which comes in a few different scent options. The strength of this one is pretty potent and you can buy the refills separately.

Diptyque Baies Large Candle, Reed Diffuser and Hourglass Diffuser

I still love the Best of Baies Set ($135) which has a small candle, mini room spray (love) and a scented oval.

Best Cozy Candles for Fall

October 8, 2021

Best Candles For Fall Diptyque, Jo Malone, Byredo

I love this time of year when we can bring out all kinds of cozy things for fall the season. It’s still quite warm here in Florida but the weather has noticeably started to shift. I’ve started to change our home scents to put us more in the mood for fall. Today I’ve put together a roundup of my favorite cozy fall candles from Nordstrom. I’ve included a few alternatives for diffusers and room sprays as well.

Diptyque Loves

Best Diptyque Baies Candles

Out of all the home fragrance brands I would say that Diptyque is my favorite. I still remember the first ones I splurged on and to this day my favorite is still Baies. It’s a classic blackcurrant and rose mix that is truly unique. I own this in multiple formats and sizes. The Standard Size 6.5 oz/190 g candle is a classic and has approximately 60 hours of burn time. For a splurge the 3-Wick 600 g comes in a black ceramic vessel and has 90 hours of burn time. The larger size has significantly stronger throw.

If you’re looking for a good gift set to treat yourself or gift as a hostess gift Best of Baies is a great one with a mini candle, mini room spray and scented oval.

Diptyque Best of Baies Set Nordstrom

Other scents I adore include Ambre which is a warm and creamy woody amber with vetiver, patchouli, aniseed, spices, incense, cistus and tonka bean. Santal is another favorite woody scent wand is probably my favorite sandalwood variation with a mix of velvety spices. Vanille is one of the best smoky vanillas I’ve tried.

Best Diptyque Candles for Fall Ambre, Vanille and Santal

The Diptyque room sprays are among the best ones I’ve tried. While they’re not as long lasting as a candle, I find they last longer in our home compared to other brands. I’ve splurged on a quite a few but the ones I like the most are Figuier and Baies.

Favorite Diptyque Room Sprays

Byredo

Best Byredo Scents Tree House, Burning Rose, Cotton Poplin

I also have so much love for Byredo. Their candles are really spendy but they have incredibly strong throw. Even their mini ones are quite potent. The ones I keep going back to are Tree House and Woods for fall. Both have a really unique woody vibe. Tree House is a complex scent with cedar, bamboo, sandalwood, guaiac wood and hay and spice, myrrh and labdanum. The first time I visited a Byredo store this was the scent they were burning inside and it was incredible. I splurged on the Room Spray and was really impressed.

Another favorite is Cotton Poplin which I think is more of a timeless home fragrance. It’s one of the most comforting fresh scents with a mix of chamomile, cedar and musk.

There are so many great options in candles. I also really like Burning Rose and Bibliotheque – both unique, smoky with a lot of depth. If you like the Bal D’Afrique Perfume you will really love Bibliotheque.

Le Labo

Le Labo Santal Candle and Discovery Set

Le Labo is another great line I think is universally loved. The Santal 26 Candle is one of their classics. It’s a creamy warm mix of amber, cocoa, vanilla, cedar, musk and sandalwood. It’s quite potent and fills the entire home within minutes.

They have a few mini candle discovery sets which I love. I own the Candle Discovery Set Trio with Figue 15, Palo Santo 14 and Petit Grain 21 (Nordstrom Exclusive) and think it makes for a great gift. They just added a new Candle Discovery Set with Calone 17, Laurier 62 and Verveine 32. I’m super curious about these and have them on my list to smell next time I’m in store.

Maison Francis Kurkdjian

Maison Francis Kurkdjian Baccarat Rouge 540 Scented Candle

One of the most luxurious things I’ve been gifted was the Maison Francis Kurkdjian Baccarat Rouge 540 Scented Candle. My bestie bought this for me last Christmas and I save it for special occasions. It smells just like the Eau de Parfum – mix of rich amber, floral notes, jasmine, saffron, cedarwood and ambergris. It has such an incredible throw.

Jo Malone

Jo Malone Lime Basil & Mandarin Scent Surround Diffuser

Last but not least is Jo Malone. They have so many timeless classics and I love their holiday editions. The one I love the most is the Lime Basil and Mandarin which is clean, unisex, unique, sharp. I tried the Lime Basil & Mandarin Scent Surround Diffuser and love it.

Best Candles for Fall from Diptyque, Byredo, Jo Malone

I know this is a long list but since I work from home I find them worth the splurge. We always have something burning in the home for any kind of mood. I love that Andrew also loves a good smelling home.

Out of all the scents that I’ve purchased and repurchased, I would say my Top 5 for fall:

  1. Diptyque Baies
  2. Diptyque Santal
  3. Diptyque Ambre
  4. Diptyque Vanille
  5. Byredo Tree House

What I’m wearing in this post:

If you’re part of the Nordy Club they have 2x points on beauty through October 31st! What are your favorite scents for fall?

Beauty Favorites Nordstrom Tom Ford Beauty

New Tom Ford Beauty Launches at Nordstrom

September 15, 2021

Tom Ford Beauty Haul New Shade and Illuminate Concealer 3W0 and Blush Explicit Flush

I have a beauty haul roundup with some new launches from Nordstrom! Tom Ford Beauty recently launched some new products in the Shade and Illuminate lineup and new lip colors. I’ve been putting the new Concealer and Blush Duos to the test and have a closer look today.

Tom Ford Beauty Haul Nordstrom | The Beauty Look book

Shade and Illuminate Concealer

I’ve been a long-time fan of Tom Ford foundations and one of the best splurges I’ve made is the Shade and Illuminate Soft Radiance Foundation (I wear either 5.7 Dune or 6 Natural). Tom Ford launched a new concealer called the Shade and Illuminate Concealer ($90, currently exclusive to Nordstrom) and I ordered a couple shades in 3W0 Latte and 3W1 Golden.

Tom Ford Shade and Illuminate Concealer 3W0 Latte

It’s quite the splurge but I really like the super creamy opaque formula. I’ve found it has phenomenal coverage for under the eye and is crease-proof. Coverage is medium but buildable. It has some skincare elements infused to add a glow and smoothing effect. I prefer concealer to be slightly lighter than my skintone for brightening but try to keep it as close a match as possible.

With this formula I feel 3W0 Latte is a great match for me. There wasn’t any oxidizing or darkening so the color works perfect for me.

Tom Ford Shade and Illuminate Concealer 3W0 Latte

Tom Ford Shade and Illuminate Concealer 3W0 Latte

Swatched below compared to a few other favorites in the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer, Cle de Peau Concealer and Laura Mercier Flawless Fusion for color reference. If you’re similar to my skin tone and prefer a lighter shade for more brightening I’d recommend going lighter to the 2W0 Beige or 2N0 Creme.

Tom Ford Shade Illuminate Concealer vs NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer, Cle de Peau Concealer and Laura Mercier Flawless Fusion

Shade and Illuminate Blush

Tom Ford Shade and Illuminate Blush Duos

Tom Ford Shade and Illuminate Blush ($90) is a new formula of blush. There are currently four shades available at Nordstrom. These have a silky smooth texture with sheer to medium coverage. On my skin they have a satiny finish. Each duo has one matte and one shimmer shade but I found the shimmer to be very subtle (almost barely there). So if you love non-shimmer blushes these will be perfect for you!

These apply flawlessly on the skin. If you remember the original Tom Ford blushes they had a subtle micro pearl with a subtle sheen. These pull more on the matte side but have the same beautiful buildable soft texture. I swatched these with a heavy hand on the arm, but you’ll see in the face beauty looks below they look quite natural.

  • 02 Explicit Flush has a beige peach shimmer + coral matte
  • 03 Peach Poison has a matte peach + deeper brown with some gold shimmer
  • 04 Cherry Blaze has a soft pink + peachy coral with a slight shimmer
  • 05 Sundrunk has a pink beige matte and a soft rose pearl

Tom Ford Shade and Illuminate Blush swatches

Lip Color

I noticed a few new shades of Lip Color ($58) and decided to order 2 of them in Pink Charade and Neutral Party and love them both. Pink Charade is a neutral cool toned pink and Neutral Party is a medium neutral pink brown shade. Both are creams and have smooth full coverage.

Gloss Luxe Moisturizing Lip Gloss

Last I have swatches of the four new Gloss Luxe Moisturizing Lip Glosses ($58 each). These run on the sheer side so they’ll add a soft wash of color. They feel really comfortable and hydrating. I find they work best layered over a pencil or lipstick.

  • 21 In the Buff is a pale sparkling champagne gold
  • 22 Sunrise Pink is a pretty pink rose (my favorite!)
  • 23 Bare Assed is a shimmery cool rose-plum with gold shimmer
  • 24 Honeyed Coral is a berry plum with gold shimmer

I’m really pleased with everything. The concealer is quite the splurge but performs exceptionally well. It has that same creamy feel as the formula from Laura Mercier and NARS but with better coverage. Out of the blushes my favorite is Cherry Blaze with Sundrunk in close second. I’ll have to play around with the lip colors more to see if they’re dupeable with other shades but I think Pink Charade is a nice neutral-cool pale pink. For the glosses I think Sunrise Pink is the perfect medium rose pink I’ve been looking for!

You can find all the items available now at Nordstrom. Have you checked out any of the new launches yet? They just added Byredo Makeup and Westman Atelier to Nordstrom too! I may splurge on one of the Byredo lip colors or balms soon.

Valentino Beauty Haul From Nordstrom

August 23, 2021

Valentino Beauty Launch from Nordstrom

I have a look at the new Valentino Beauty launch from Nordstrom today! I hauled a little bit of everything from eyes, lips, cheeks and foundation to try out and found some new favorites. If you haven’t checked out the launch yet I hope you find this roundup helpful!

Valentino Beauty Launch from Nordstrom

FACE MAKEUP

Very Valentino 24-Hour Wear Liquid Foundation MN4 and V-Lighter Face Primer Highlighter Ambra

I’m very impressed with their base products so far. The Very Valentino 24-Hour Wear Liquid Foundation ($64) is a fluid foundation with impressive lasting power and buildable coverage. I love that even with the long wear formula it still feels natural enough to allow the skin to breathe. I picked the shade MN4 to try with the neutral undertone and it’s a perfect match.

It has medium buildable coverage with a demi-matte finish. I always set with powder and tried it with my favorite Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless in Medium which worked perfectly together. I wasn’t able to test it for a full 24 hours but it did last from morning until late evening with minimal touch ups required (just around the T zone and nose with a bit of powder).

Very Valentino 24-Hour Wear Liquid Foundation MN4

I also tried one of the V-Lighter Face Primer Highlighters ($58) in Ambra which is the peachy option. For me it works really well as a primer or mixed in with foundation. Ambra is a pearlescent peachy shade and it adds just the perfect amount of glow to the skin. It looks quite pigmented but blends out easily to a sheerer finish.

Valentino V-Lighter Face Primer Highlighters Ambra

For the eyes and cheeks they have a multi-purpose cream to powder product called the Eye2Cheek Blush and Eyeshadow ($58 each). These have a creamy texture with a powdery dry down. Pigment is medium and buildable. The cheek colors do require some blending on the skin but the color adheres well and stays put for an extended period of time!

I tried:

04 Sweet Rebel is a cool toned pink rose with a hint of pearl
06 Call Me Coral is a coral with a hint of shimmer
08 Roman Sky is a soft glowy light peach
12 Bright Dream is a beautiful gold shimmer (I love this as an eyeshadow)

Valentino Eye2Cheek Blush and Eyeshadow

EYE MAKEUP

Valentino Color Flip Eyeshadow Palette review

For the eyes I hauled three things. So far there is one eyeshadow palette called the Color Flip Eyeshadow Palette ($98). It has eight shades to mix and match the colors for a few different looks. I tried this palette two ways, one look with just the top shades, and another with just the bottom. The textures are mixed from soft mattes, smooth shimmers, stronger shimmers and a couple more sparkly colors. Application was flawless with all of the colors and they blend really well on top of each other!

Valentino Color Flip Eyeshadow Palette swatches

Below with the top shades in the eyeshadow palette, also wearing 1ooR lipstick, Magnificent Mascara and Sweet Rebel Eye2Cheek Blush

Valentino Color Flip Eyeshadow Palette review

Side by side of the top colors vs bottom bottom colors:

Color Flip Eyeshadow Palette makeup look

Two other things I tried include the Magnificent Mascara ($32) which I am really impressed with for a good volumizing, thickening mascara that holds the curl and does not smudge on me. I also tried their Twin Liner Gel & Liquid Eyeliner in Black ($40) which is convenient if you want a pencil and liquid liner in one. Application is smooth, lasting power great, pigment is rich.

Valentino Magnificent Mascara and Twin Liner Gel & Liquid Eyeliner in Black

LIPS

Valentino Rosso Valentino Lipstick 107A and 100R

Last I have a look at two lip products. They have full size lipsticks which are refillable and also some select colors in a mini format. I bought the Rosso Valentino Lipstick in 107A Matte which is a matte dark rose brown ($55 for the lipstick, $30 for the refills). I also tried the Rosso Valentino Lipstick Mini in 100R Satin ($30) which is a neutral cool rose pink. It pulls more neutral cool toned on my warm skin, if you have neutral or cooler tones I suspect it will look more neutral or warm on your lips/complexion. I really love the texture of the 100R which is a satin finish – smooth pigment with a slightly glossy sheen.

Valentino Rosso Valentino Lipstick 107A and 100R swatches

Overall I’ve had a really good experience with the new items from the Valentino Beauty launch! My top 3 favorites I would recommend include the Foundation, V-Lighter Highlighter and Mascara.

Charlotte Tilbury Nordstrom

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale x Charlotte Tilbury Beauty Exclusives

July 30, 2021

Charlotte Tilbury x Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Beauty Exclusives

Happy Friday! I have a look at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale x Charlotte Tilbury Beauty Exclusives and think there some great options this year. Nordstrom launched a new Instant Look Palette for the sale along with some good value sets to try out. I have a closer look with more swatches today.

Charlotte Tilbury x Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Beauty Exclusives

Collagen Lip Bath Set

Charlotte Tilbury Collagen Lip Bath Set

The Collagen Lip Bath formula is one of my all time favorites. The colors Refresh Rose and Pillow Talk have been staples in my routine for an effortless look. They give the lips a plump lush shine without the strong stinging or tingle sensation (huge plus for me). Pillow Talk is the one that gives me the most compliments and I’ve gifted it to pretty much every single friend and family member close to me. Formula is comfortable and hydrating. There is peppermint which gives it a slight cooling sensation but it’s a pleasant one.

Charlotte Tilbury Collagen Lip Bath Pillow Talk

This year’s Full Size Collagen Lip Bath Trio Set is on sale for $68 (full price is a $106 value). It includes:

Refresh Rose – sheer soft clear light pink

Charlotte Tilbury Collagen Lip Bath Refresh Rose

Pillow Talk – perfect everyday rose

Charlotte Tilbury Collagen Lip Bath Pillow Talk

Walk of No Shame – warm plum berry

Above wearing:

Sunset Dreamscape Instant Look in a Palette Set

Charlotte Tilbury Sunset Dreamscape Instant Look in a Palette Set

The Face and Eye Palette Set includes one of her Instant Look Palettes called Sunset Dreamscape. It also includes a mini mascara. The palette has a good mix of everyday wearbale rose tones. On my medium skin tone it gives me a neutral rose bronze shade without being too pink or rosy.

Eyeshadows include a soft champagne, warm peachy copper shimmer, matte plum. For the face there is a nice soft light tan matte bronzer (neutral tones), two blushes in warm rose tones and a pale sheer highlighter.

Overall pigment level is medium but buildable. Lasting power is excellent for wear time and I love the colors!

Charlotte Tilbury Mini Mascara

Skin Care

Charlotte Tilbury Setting Spray and Magic Cream minis

A couple other mentions I wanted to include are some of her skincare items. There are two value sets including the Setting Spray and Magic Cream Set ($75 on sale, $113 value) and also the Magic Cream Set ($160 on sale, $240 value). I’m a huge fan of her Airbrush Flawless Setting Spray and Magic Cream so I think if you’re looking to try her skincare these are some nice sets available with some good price savings.

You can find these items available at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale in store and online at Nordstrom. Sale runs through August 8th. Don’t forget to check out the Gift With Purchase section online as well. They have new ones that rotate every week!

NARS Nordstrom

NARS x Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2021 Palettes + Sets

July 28, 2021

NARS Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2021

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale opens to the public today! In case you missed it you can see my Beauty Haul with swatches of my picks from Tom Ford, Charlotte Tilbury, NARS and more here. My Hair Care and Fragrance picks from Diptyque, Jo Malone, Oribe here.

Today I have a closer look at the three sets from NARS I hauled and after playing with them I think they are my favorites and definitely worth looking into!

PLEASURE TRIP CHEEK PALETTE

NARS Pleasure Trip Cheek Palette Nordstrom Sale 2021

nail polish is Gucci Annabelle Rose

The NARS Pleasure Trip Cheek Palette ($45 sale, $87 value) is a trio with one highlighter (Wanderlust), one shimmery brush (Lucky Star) and a soft matte bronzer (Wild at Heart). The palette shows up pretty well on my medium tan skin for a bronzed rose look. Colors are smooth and the shimmers aren’t too shimmery. Pigment is on the medium-high side but can be easily sheered out. The texture is that finely milled pressed texture similar to the older Banc de Sable or the more recent NARS Orgasm on the Beach – just not as glowy/shimmery on my skin.

NARS Pleasure Trip Cheek Palette swatches + Afterglow Lip Shine Set

AFTERGLOW LIP SHINE SET

NARS Afterglow Lip Shine Trio Broken Glass, Orgasm, Laguna

The NARS Afterglow Lip Shine Set ($45 sale, $78 value) is really nice, especially if you like smooth texture lip glosses. Pigment is sheer but still visible on the lips. I like them alone but they also layer beautifully with lipsticks or lip liners. Lasting power is pretty good for a gloss. The shimmery ones have no texture even with the sparkles.

NARS Afterglow Lip Shine Trio Broken Glass, Orgasm, Laguna

Wearing below:

Broken Glass is a clear base loaded with silver and pale gold shimmers.

NARS Afterglow Lip Shine Broken Glass

Orgasm is a medium pink shimmer.

Laguna is a warm coppery bronze with a subtle shimmer.

AFTERGLOW MINI LIP BALM DUO

NARS Afterglow Mini Lip Balm Duo ($22) in Deep Throat and Fast Lane

Last but not least lip swatches of the NARS Afterglow Mini Lip Balm Duo ($22) in Deep Throat and Fast Lane. The lip balms in this duo are super mini, but it makes for a nice sampler size to give you a sense of how they will perform on your lips. Also makes a super cute gift. I think the full-size Afterglow Lip Balms ($28 each) are 100% worth the splurge. Love these for the soft wash of color + shine.
