(Almost) A Year Later: NARS & MUFE

On April 28, 2013 by amy

Originally I planned to post this quite awhile back, but it’s suitable now because I can give perspective on the long term usage of these products!

First up is NARS Illuminator in Copacabana.

My skintone is generally warm (I think) so I didn’t want to originally go for this colour because it’s fairly pinky/cool.  I have a few other liquid highlighters though that are more golden so I thought this was a good choice for something different. I’ve tried it on top of foundation and mixed in and I’ve liked it both ways. These days it’s my go-to highlighter and I think I’d like to try another NARS one in a different shade.

Next up, Make Up For Ever’s Face and Body foundation.

Hmmm.  I go back and forth on this.  My normal foundation is Revlon Colorstay (normal/dry) in Buff, which I actually still love and recommend.  My colour was 20 in this and it was a good match but probably more so for my skin tone in the summer.  I’m still iffy on the formula, it’s a little watery and sheer for me but I like it once it “settles” on my face.  I originally wanted a foundation to wear for photographed events as this one has no SPF in it.  I’m going to continue to wear it off and on but I’m not sure if  I’d repurchase.  I think I can find an SPF-free foundation that I like better.

And finally, NARS Velvet Gloss Lip Pencil in Mexican Rose.

This colour is INTENSE.  WHOA.  Maybe it’s just on me, and I’ve been daring with lip colour lately too.  It’s very long-lasting, very pink and it does feel nice on.  I hear it’s recommend to store these in the fridge to waste less product when you sharpen it (like many others I also wish this were twistable instead of needing sharpening).  I find this leaves a very long lasting stain too, so that’s good and bad.  I think I want another colour to try in this, one that I’d use more, maybe a coral shade?
