Today I decided to go for a nice nude look (yes, I know, but I am not feeling well and it is a go to look for me when I want easy pretty). I got my hands on two of the Sephora exclusive Benefit “World Famous Neutrals” Palettes and I decided to use the Most Glamorous Nudes Ever one today. I also wanted to try out some of the new Nars items I got. This post will be a long review and look!
For this look I am using: Benefit’s That Gal Brightening Face Primer ($29.00), MAC’s Mineralize Moisture SPF 15 Foundation in NC 15 ($33.00), Nars Radiant Concealer in Chantilly ($28.00), Nars Light Reflecting Loose Setting Powder ($34.00), Benefit’s Most Glamorous Nudes Ever palette ($30.00), Nars Miss Liberty Highlighting Blush ($29.00) and Nars Candy Says Larger Than Life Lip Gloss ($26.00).
Below you can see the swatches I have taken for all the items I used today:

These are the four eye shadows: Gilt-y Pleasure, It’s Complicated, Kiss Me I’m Tipsy and Call My Bluff.

This is the Larger Than Life Lip Gloss in Candy Says
For myself, I really like all of the products I used today. My only complaint is that the MAC foundation has a little too much coverage. I like it but you have to be careful not to get too much on as it is fairly heavy coverage. Today I mixed it with That Gal and found that it looked great on my skin. I have decided that I am never going to use another concealer again. NARS Radiant Concealer is the best out there. It covers and goes on so smoothly, that it is well worth the money. Below you can see that I included two photographs of my eyes open. I did because I am so happy with my mascara today. I used Maybelline’s Great Lash Lots of Lashes. This took me from almost invisible to stunning lashes (well, stunning for me). I am not going to go over where I put which shadow today. I think you can pretty much guess from the look with my eyes open and closed. If you read my blog often enough then you pretty much know my pattern! I want you to compare this with the Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette look: http://iamthemakeupjunkie.blogspot.com/2012/11/the-new-urban-decay-naked-basics-is-here.html. This look is pretty much on par with it I think. By the way, the NARS Light Reflecting Loose Setting Powder is awesome! It sets your look without being heavy. Well worth the money too.
The NARS Highlighting Blush in Miss Liberty is such a perfect light shimmer to add to the cheeks. A beautiful light pink.The NARS Larger Than Life Lip Gloss in Candy Says is one of my favorites. So much that I purchased a back up for my purse. And I have a gazillion nude pink lip glosses!
I’m such a makeup sucker. I love everything. I would love to know what you have tried in today’s look. Let me know by leaving a comment.
