Pretending I own the NARS Rated R duo

I know I've been MIA this last week, but I'm gonna be better, I swear! I already have pictures all ready for a post tomorrow :) And since I have now gotten my own credit card, and I know that my paycheck tomorrow will be the biggest one I've ever gotten, I've already started ordering stuff, heehee. I will have a ton of hauls/ reviews/ swatches coming up soon. Here was a look I did for fun today. I love the Nars Rated R duo but there's no way in hell I'm shelling out $32 for it. Everyone knows indie companies do it better anyway ;] So I got out similar colors from my stash and created a look. What I used: Extragalactic, by Stardust (lid) Zombie Ambrosia, by Morgana (crease) Sugar, by Hi Fi (highlight) Sleek Kajal liner in Odyssey Rimmel black liner Maybelline Falsies mascara L'Oreal Extra Collagen mascara Morgana Minerals Coraline's Kiss lipstick (blotted w/clear gloss) Also, is anyone else SUPER EXCITED for the Urban Decay book of shadows III? Check it out here on Temptalia's blog. One more thing to get excited about: Julissa's amazing contest! It has the best prizes of any contest/ giveaway I've ever seen, seriously. You still have some time so hop to it!

  11. @Steph: It looks beautiful, and it has no repeats of colors from the palette I'm about to buy, heehee.

    @Alina: thanks! The price tag on NARS is just way too high for me.

    @Robyn: It's not out for a couple months I don't think, you have time!

    @The Peach: thank you!

    @Phyrra: Zombie Ambrosia has to be one of my favorite eyeshadows, but I don't think I've ever used it before!

    @liloo: thank you :)

    @PoorCollegeStudent: I really don't even like shopping for real that much anymore... online is so much more fun.

    @Julissa: thanks & you're welcome :P Oh gosh, so far I made a new Detrivore order, ordered some pressed shadows from Beauties Factory, and ordered some soaps and things from Lethal Lathers and Latherati. I'm about to order some more now, heehee. My paycheck is flying out the window.

  14. I think I'm going to get some stuff from Fyrinnae and High Voltage, and just a couple samples from Sassy and Shiro. And I really want to try Darling Girl cosmetics, and Skin Journey. I still have more but I think I should save some things for the future, haha.

  19. I love this, not just the colours but the way you shaped it. And I'm so jealous of your license-to-haul XD

    ReplyDelete
  20. Aaa! The winged crease is so hot! I love the greens oh man!

    ReplyDelete
  21. It could be, I think it looks amazing, though. Really kinda gives you a little something extra

    ReplyDelete
  22. @SilhouetteScreams: that means something coming from you :D

    @ScrubbingUpWell: thank you!

    @kathyeffingjacobs: yay thanks!

    @Simone: License to haul, hahaha. thanks!

    @Pixie_a_la_mode: It is the best green of all time, hands down. Too bad Stardust isn't around anymore :(

  23. Very cool!

    Be careful with that credit card girl! It can make or break your future--as scary as that sounds, it's true!!

    =)

  25. @Nicole: I think I've been doing well so far! I'm only using it for my online purchases, and then I set that money aside in cash to give to my dad when the bill comes. This way I won't end up spending more than I have.

    @Jonna: thanks!
